I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions

Please complete these two problems. You will need to explain how you got the answer.


Question 1
In our household, there are twice as many cats as humans, with sixty legs in total.

How many cats are there to be fed?
60  twice as many means need to divide it into thirds then two third will be cats

Question 2
Three men run a business together.
The proportion of the profit they each get at the end of the month is based on the proportion of the funds they have invested in the business.
The April profit is shared out so that Al gets one third, Bob gets one half and Chuck gets one sixth.
In May, Des joins the group, investing half as much as Bob invested.
What share of the profit can Des expect to get?

¼ bob gets one halve so des is investing a halve of bob so des is investing a quarter

Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel dragon keeper by carole wilkinson


I found this novel exiting  because it has lots of betrayal and twists and turns!!!


During the novel I had to complete two major assessment tasks. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book. The second was a Describe++ Map (Inference map) which shows I how I have connected prior knowledge and other experiences to what I have been reading to make an inference.


National Standard this covers (delete the ones that are not appropriate)


  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.

I can use strategies to analyse ideas and information and to reflect critically on the meaning I am gaining from my reading. (Eg: I can think about the meaning of the information and ideas and how this fits with what I think)
