Integers and Decimals

Title: Maths - Integers and Decimals

In Maths we have been learning to….find the common multiples and factors of numbers.


We have been solving equations for square roots, factors and multiples of numbers.
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.

This document shows the evidence that I have collected as I have completed the tasks.

My Next Step: Is to use this knowledge further by applying it to problem solving tasks and questions that I will solve in Maths.

must do merit #2

peer mediation

last Friday i did peer mediation .I had to do it by myself because maxim went to te hapua and shivana didn't turn up. there weren't many problems but the one that there were i solved and recorded it down on the i pad.
I showed the care value active thinking by solving the problems by myself

Evaluate Texts


In reading we have been learning to….make decisions about the usefulness of the text for purpose, by using a variety of criteria to evaluate.


Here is a link to our online modelling book


We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Status


These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:




My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information

Algebra - Graphs, tables and rules.

Blog post title: Algebra - Graphs, tables and rules.





In Maths we have been using to: use graphs, tables and rules to describe linear relationships found in number and spatial patterns.


Here is a link to our online modelling book. This shows all of the learning we have been doing.


EVIDENCE of my learning.
Here are some screenshots to show the IXL activities I have completed.

Here are some photos of my Extended abstract problem solving task.
(use the ipad to take some photos of your Maths book)

My next step is to continue to apply what I have learned in a range of problem solving activities.

Know the equivalent decimal and percentage forms for everyday fractions.

TITLE:
Know the equivalent decimal and percentage forms for everyday fractions.


In Maths we have been learning:
  • To convert between fractions, decimals , percentages and vice versa.




Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  
The most challenging part about this unit of learning was understanding how to convert fractions decimals and percentages

My next learning step in Maths is to apply  this knowledge to help me solve a range of increasingly more complicated maths problems.

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
