7.3 Monitoring your progress
Use your records or logbook to provide a reflective commentary on:
what you did to help you set up and use numerical, graphical and algebraic methods and techniques to achieve your goals; for example, what you did to:
evaluate information from different sources and develop alternative lines of enquiry;
carry out calculations to appropriate levels of accuracy and draw on a range of numerical, graphical and algebraic techniques (e.g. in making measurements, reading and interpreting scale drawings, graphs, tables and charts, organising and classifying data, making statistical inferences from data, developing mathematical models, using proportion and scaling, using formulae and equations, working with probability, making deductions in algebraic and spatial reasoning);
choose criteria and use them to critically evaluate the quality of your work;
the use you made of resources and feedback comments to improve your skills and the quality of your work; with hindsight, would you do anything differently to improve the quality of your number skills?
the choices you made as you developed and used number skills for particular purposes; assess, making reference to criteria and targets where relevant, how effective your use of number has been. Include any changes you have made to your strategy, for example, what you changed to overcome problems, why you made the changes, and what was or was not successful. With hindsight what might you do differently next time?
