Probability Slides

WALT: Calculate the probability of the event happening.

This week I wrote my description in it's own blog post. You can read if you want. It below this post.

Probability Reflection

WALT: Calculate the probability of an event happening.

Task: Write a reflection about this weeks maths. 

This week we learnt about probability. I have learnt that probability is actually helpful. It could be helpful when trying to figure out the Weather. Almost everyday you use probability to plan around the weather. Meteorologists don't know what the weather will be. Because of that they use tools and instruments to find out the chance that it will rain, snow or hail. Example; if there's a 70-percent chance of hail, then conditions of the weather are such that 70 out of 100 days with similar conditions, it has hailed. Maybe you'll take a raincoat rather than a singlet or just an umbrella to work/school. I think that my goal this week was to follow the WALT. That's what I have done. I calculating the probability of an event happening. Such as the coin toss (you'll find it in the presentation). An event such as the coin toss was calculated by it's probability.

Scratch Game Term 2

Today we had extension class. This term our focus is based around technology. Some people are in the middle of making a game. My group just started making the game so we have to catch up a bit. We have started our first level. It's supposed to be a maze in mars. Here's what it looks like.

Thats only our first level. There is two more levels to come. I can't wait to finish it off and start playing it. My partner is Moroni. We are trying to make our game better and better.

Reading Diagram and Probability

WALT: Interpret information from different graphs.

Last week in maths I finished off this presentation. Basically each slide asks questions about the picture to the side. Read and answer was the instructions. I found this presentation not to be a learning thing but a reminder. A reminder of last year and past week's knowledge.

Making Clever Clothes & Keeping Houses Warm and Cool

WALT: Evaluating - I gather, and synthesise to evaluate information across a range of texts.

This week we had two main texts. They were about making clever clothes and keep houses warm and cool. One thing I found interesting, was the job of the man that made the clever clothing. He was a technologist. I really wanted to research more about that. I did just that. What I found out was that a technologists job is to help with development, design of application of engineering and technology.

WALT: Interpret information from different graphs.

This week in maths we learnt about statistics. I was surprised that I remembered many words. On Wednesday I wrote definitions for all of the words that I know. I wrote it down on paper and now that paper has disappeared. Writing that down had to be the highlight of this presentation. One more thing I remembered was the stem and leaf graph. When I was doing it, I really wanted to do it again. Next week I hope to do another stem and leaf graph (probably won't).

Home Learning Week 2

This week's task: Maths focus (as this was the most popular choice from our recent survey!)

This week I really wanted to do my home learning. I kept forgetting about it so I just posted it on a Sunday. One thing I thought I really need to work on is maths whizz. Its not looking very well. I guess this week I can boost my minutes up. My goal for this week is to have more than 50 minutes of maths whizz.

Diagram of Heat Transfer Process

WALT: Make a diagram based on what your learning.

Here is a diagram on heat transfer process. I focused on huskies. Obliviously they live in the snow so they would have transferred. One interesting thing that I learnt is that huskies has air pockets in between their two layers of fur. 

Staying Warm, Keeping Cool

WALT: Evaluating - I gather, and synthesise to evaluate information across a range of texts.

SUCCESS CRITERIA:  I can clearly outline what the texts have in common and how they differ.

This week in reading we learnt about our bodies and how stay warm and keep cool. One main information I learnt is that blood keeps us cool and warm. Not cool as in you have the style but as in not hot. When we feel hot, our brain cells send signals to the blood to rise to the surface of our skin. It's amazing!

Statistical Literacy

WALT: Interpret information from a pie graph and bar graph.

This week in maths, we learnt about reading information through pie and bar graphs. I learnt that bar graph tells you the number and pie graph the percentage. A bar graph has a lines with the options at the bottom and amount of numbers on the side. Bar graph can also be shown a different way to what I shown. Pie graphs are in the shape of a circle and show shaded shapes in the pie graph. These 'shaded shapes' are the percentages. It kind of looks like a pie cut in pieces. I guess that's where it gets it name.

12 x 12 Grid

WALT: Practise our 12 x 12.

Today we did our daily 12 x 12 grid. Everyone had ten minutes to do it. I really proud of myself because I finished at 7 minutes and 7 seconds. That's my record. It may not be as fast as others, but I think its a good time. Can't wait to try and beat tomorrow.

Home Learning Week 1

WALT: Practise your Maths at home.

At our school, we have home learning instead of homework. That is because we don't work... we learn! This presentation is just a little thing we can finished by the end of the week.

Hmmmm... Yes I Remember!

WALT: Use our knowledge of place values, fractions and decimals to solve word problems

This week in maths we had a refresh of last term. We refreshed our mind with our knowledge of Fractions, Decimals and Place Value. When I first started the presentation I remembered many things. Such as...  finding how many tens there are in a number from the thousands. Take off the last number on the right hand side and you've got it.

Scratch Game Reflection

WALT: Create a game on Scratch.

Last term in extension we created a game on scratch to help us with our knowledge with code. I really did learn a lot and you can see that in this reflection. Ata, Ana and I made this game together. Some parts were fun and other challenging. Here's the link to our game.
