Figure it out

This week for Miss White maths group we learned about how to use our problem solving skills to work out the gala set up.

What is a school Gala? A school gala is where people sales things that others would like to buy or want. For example : You are saling a pencil case. When people walks towards it they would want to buy it so they will give you a token of how much it cost.

First, Miss White explained to us what we are learning for today. We are learning about solving skills and how to use our problems. For example : the problem is “The goldfish is selfish and never wants to share anything with us”. The solving part will be “Until the goldfish realises he was a selfish fish that won’t share anything with other people or creatures so he decides to share and make everyone happy again.

Next, Miss White told us that we have to make a copy of the google slide that talks about figuring it out at the gala. There are 14 slides to complete. When we finished making a copy of the google slide we had to look at the slide and work out each question. We also had to use different partners each slide. My partner for each slide was Armani, Hasna, Ziv, Valencia, Sila, Hasna, Amarley, Myah, and other people. Those are the partners I used for each slide.

Lastly, we had to go through each slide and answer the questions. One of the questions was date dilema. In the date dilemma we had to go look at the calendar and see what date suits most people and way. I picked the 29th because there is a 50% (percent) chance that there is a strong wind and there’s another 50% chance that it would or could be weak. When I finished some of the slides we had to draw a bar graph on a book or a chromebook to see which one is the best and who has the most votes.

I enjoyed doing this task. I did well at answering all of the questions on the google slide. I need to improve on doing more bar graphs about the school gala.

Maths Revision

This week for Miss White maths group, we learned about revision number knowledge.

Tip : highlight the numbers and words that help you come up with a number problem to solve it.

First, Miss White explained to us what is happening next week. In week 2 we will be having testing week. Work through the revision sheet. Make sure you read the problems carefully and figure out which operation problem to solve.

Next, we had to make a copy of the maths revision. It has section 1 and 2 which is addition, section 3 which is word problems, section4 which is subtraction word problem, section 5 which is challenging. In section 1 and 2 there are 20 additions to solve, in section 3 there are 10 to solve, in section 4 there are 10 to solve, And for section 5 there are 5 to answer and solve. In all of the sections I got 100/100.

Lastly, when we finished all of the section, Miss White told us to go on the mat with our chromebook’s so we can tick them if it is wrong or right. In section 1, I got 10/10, in section 2, I got 10/10, in section 3, I got 10/10, In section 4 I got 10/10 and last and for least section 5. I got 9/10.

I enjoyed doing this task. I did well at solving the questions. I need to improve on section 5 to get 10/10.

Basic Facts Boxes

This week for maths I learned about Basic Facts Boxes.

Basic Facts Boxes is a type of Math game that you sort out the answers. For example: 1+1=2.

First, I had to figure out which one I want to do for math’s. The options were plus, minus, and multiplications. I picked minus because I was thinking that it is the best way to start off with. I also had to pick another option. The options were, random, and order. I picked order because I think the same as minus.

Next, I had to start off by figuring out the answers for the math’s. The minus was easy for me. For example: 20-1= 19, 19-1=18.

Lastly, I had to press check when I finished answering the math problem. For example: when you finish answering your problem of math’s you had to press check to see if you got some wrong, some correct.

I enjoyed learning about basic facts boxes. I did well at answering the problems or solving the problems. I need to improve on moving on to the multiplications.

Numerator & Denominator

This week for Miss White’s maths group we learned about how to identify fractions, and we also learned about numerator and denominator.

What are fractions? Fractions are part of a whole, or any number of equal parts. A fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are. For example : one – half, eight – fifths, and three – quarters.

What is numerator and denominator? Numerator is the top number, denominator is the bottom number. Denominator tells how many equal parts are in the whole have been cut & numerator tells how many equal parts of the whole you have or the number that tells you the whole amount is the denominator. The numerator tells you how many pieces out of the whole that you are talking about in your situation.

First, Miss White talked to us about numerator and denominator and fractions. She said “Fractions have two parts, the denominator and numerator. The denominator is the bottom number in a fraction, so it goes down on the bottom below the fraction line or bar.” For example :  1/2 (one half).

Next, Miss White explained to us the 2 tasks. For the first one we had to complete the document called identifying fractions. All you have to do is, answer the questions. For example  : There are 29 children in a class. 14 of them like playing football. What fraction of the class like playing football? The answer will be 7/15 because 15 takes away 8 equals 7 so 7 people didn’t like playing football.

Lastly, we had to create a DLO explaining the numerator and denominator of a fraction. And we also had to explain how you can identify a fraction. We had to make the DLO simple so people could probably read or understand it probably. For example : if a little kid saw someone’s DLO about a football and he doesn’t understand the meaning of the words he will not know anything and won’t learn.

I enjoyed doing this task. I did well at explaining numerator and denominator. I need to improve on doing simple details for other people to understand what I am talking about.

Here is my work!
