Form and Solve simple Linear Equations.

In Maths we have been learning to solve one and two step linear equations.

Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  
Extended Abstract Activities.

Here is a link to my Extended Abstract Activity.

My next learning step in Maths is to use graphs, tables and rules to describe linear relationships.

Reading - Text Composition

Reading - Text Composition

In reading we have been learning to….
recognise the way words, sentences and paragraphs are put together (eg sentences that express cause and effect) and use this knowledge to understand complicated texts.

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
(link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge of parts of texts, to help me make sense of increasingly complicated text types.

extended abstract task

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

Use simple fractions and percentages to describe probabilities maths

Assessment task: Use simple fractions and percentages to describe probabilities

Question 1:

Show your working and answer here:
The answer is 1/15 because i drew all the possibilities and it came out with 1/15                                                            

Question 2:
Show your working and answers here:
2a: two dollars because if you give one dollar to one of the child and they get two bubble gums and the other child gets two bubble gums the have one hundred percent chance that there will be two of the same colours

2b: three  dollars ,same reason as before

2c: $4.50

Question 3:

Show your working and answer here:

320 i worked this out by drawing it myself and making it breaking it five times and then timesing the answer by 5

What is you next step?
To quickly figure out the easiest way to answer the question accurately  

Finally, add the screenshots from the 3 IXL activities you did here:

Activity One
Activity Two
Activity Three
