This involves:

This involves: and also relating findings to a context, or communicating thinking using appropriate mathematical statements. 
This involves: and also using correct mathematical statements, or communicating mathematical insight.

Methods include a selection from those related to Achievement Objectives Clarifications To be used as evidence a ‘method’ must be relevant to the solution of the problem. The ‘methods’ also need to be at the appropriate curriculum level for the standard. For forming a system of equations to provide evidence of a method, one of the equations must be nonlinear. Solving a system of equations is not sufficient as evidence of a method. To provide evidence for the standard the solutions of the system of equations need to be interpreted in context. At all levels there is a requirement relating to the communication of the solutions. At Achieved level, students need to indicate what the calculated answer represents. At Merit level students need to clearly indicate what they are calculating and their solutions need to be linked to the context. At Excellence level the response needs to be clearly communicated with correct mathematical statements and students need to explain any decisions they make in the solution of the problem.
