Formative assessment shall help promote learning and develop competence in mathematics 2P-Y. The pupils demonstrate and develop competence in the subject when they find, understand and use mathematical relationships. The pupils also demonstrate and develop competence when they work in a practical and explorative way by planning, carrying out and presenting work related to working life and society. Furthermore, the pupils demonstrate and develop competence when they explore mathematical concepts, use mathematical methods and use mathematical reasoning.
The teacher shall facilitate for pupil participation and stimulate the desire to learn by allowing the pupils to explore mathematics and solve mathematical problems by reasoning, arguing and modelling. The teacher and the pupils shall engage in dialogue about their development in programming and strategies for solving problems. The pupils shall have the opportunity to try and fail. With the competence the pupils have demonstrated as the starting point, they shall have the opportunity to express what they believe they have achieved and reflect on their development in the subject. The teacher shall provide guidance on further learning and adapt the teaching to enable the pupils to use the guidance provided to develop their competence in discovering relationships between mathematics and practical applications.
