There has been an improvement in the presentation of ~ work which is good to see.
The presentation of ^ written work has improved a lot, but again, ^ needs to improve consistency in this area.
The presentation of ~ written work has improved a lot, and now ^ needs to achieve consistency in this area.
^ is capable of setting ~ work out in a neat, tidy and well organised way but must take care to ensure standards of presentation do not slip.
^ work is always presented in a clear and well organised way.
^ work is usually presented in a clear and well organised way.
^ is keen to progress and has learnt to set ~ work out in a clear way.
^ work is generally set out in a clear and organised way and ^ can go back and correct ~ own work when mistakes are made.
^ has worked hard this year to improve the presentation and layout of ~ work, and I am pleased with ~ progress in this area.

Approach
# never fails to bring a positive and highly motivated attitude to mathematics lessons.
# has developed a more confident and methodical approach to mathematics as time has progressed and ^ can now solve problems which require the application of two or more concepts.
# has made good progress in mathematics and ^ has proved *self to be an enthusiastic, polite and helpful student with a lively sense of humour.
I am particularly impressed with #'s positive approach to mathematics and ^ will one day enjoy the rewards of ~ continued effort.
# has made good progress in mathematics and ^ has proved *self to be an enthusiastic, organised, polite and helpful student
# has worked very well throughout the year and has consolidated and developed ~ mathematical ability.
^ has shown on many occasions that if the understanding of a topic or concept is not forthcoming then ^ will work at it and seek advice until ^ is satisfied.
^ is quick to understand concepts and spots rules easily - ^ can mechanically answer questions but finds problem solving difficult as the route to the answer is often less clear.
^ is, nevertheless, very good at asking questions concerning what ^ finds difficult and clearly values individual attention in lessons.
^ generally understands new concepts well and knows the appropriate time to ask for help if ~ gets stuck.
^ understands new concepts well and knows when ^ has to ask for help with ~ work.
