Word Problems 1

WALT: Applying my knowledge to word problems. 

This week in maths, we learnt about word problems. We learnt how to figure out if the word problem was to be solved with... addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. The five steps to solve a word problem...
1. Read
2. Underline important information
3. Select a strategy 
4. Solve
5. Check
I have learnt lots from this and hope to remember this for the future.

Visual Mihi

WALT: Create a Visual Mihi.

This is my visual Mihi from Term 1.
The top left image represents dancing. I love dancing and Ballet is just one of a kind. In the top on the right is a bible. This represents my religion and what I believe. Below the bible is the meaning of outdoors. I love exploring and finding things like twigs, mud and leaves to make weird things. The two flags at the left bottom represents my background and where I came from. The picture of me represents my life and how I love it.

Rust task

Walt: Synthesise information from multiple sources.
Work on this Doc together with a partner. My partner was Seini.

What 3 ingredients are needed for rust to occur.
Oxygen from the air (O)
Water (H2O)

Write a brief paragraph explaining the rusting process (why rusting occurs)
When metal is near water and oxygen, it forms rust. Rusting occurs when H2O (water) and O (oxygen) is in contact with iron or steel. The rusting process becomes faster when salty water or acid rain is applied.  
How could you prevent something from rusting?
By preventing metal from rusting you can paint it or put a layer of oil or grease over the metal. It is a good idea to use this as a solution so that the oxygen could bounce off the metal instead of rusting it, depending on what kind of environment  the metal is in.

Write 3 sentences explaining something new you’ve learned from this reading.
We learnt that the term corrosion is used to describe metal breaking down when it is exposed to the environment. We also learnt that rusting can be prevented when you either paint, grease/oil or a process called galvanizing. An example of galvanizing is when you put zinc and iron together, the zinc protects the iron but it sacrifices itself because zinc reacts more than the iron.
