Maths Word Problem

WALT: Illustrate (draw/show) the steps we used to solve each problem.
This week we learnt to show how we solved the question. Sometimes our activities require just the answer. This week we have shown our solutions. If you click to the last slide, you will see our task was to create a poster. My poster is the question is the first question on the first slide. My solution for some questions were a bit of a challenge, but it was fine. I learnt that if I can't solve a mutiplication number, I just split the number.

Multiplication Pyramid

WALT: Find a rule to a sequential pattern
For this activity, we used our multiplication skills to find out the top number.  As you can see the numbers keep getting bigger and bigger.  How this pyramid works is that the numbers next to each other is multiplied by each other.  For example:

This 5 and 2 are multiplied by each other to make 10.

I did this all the way up the pyramid until I got to the number 192,756,122,160.  Also known as one hundred and ninety two billion, seven hundred and fifty six million, one hundred twenty two thousand and one hundred and sixty.

Three Kete Poster

WALA (we are learning about): How some story can just be...
one story that has many versions but all have the main message.

This week, we learnt about the three kete and what they mean.  We had a story we read about the three kete.  Also we had a presentation with questions we answered with the information from the piece of writing.  Our task was to create a poster that uses the kete as a way to encourage students with the idea of Gathering and Storing.
