## Location

This week for Miss White maths we learned about how to find and describe the location of something on a map using grid references.

What is a grid? A grid is a map put into squares. Grid references are used to help find things. This used to be used for maps to help people travel to different areas. We always say the X axis first and Y axis next.

First, we had to discuss in Miss White whole group, what location is. Location is an actual place or natural setting in which a film or broadcast is made, as distinct from a simulation in a studio.

Next, we had to make a copy of a google slide that is about auckland zoo. In the google slide we had to have a look at the questions and answer them also by using what are some places you can see, what are their coordinates, and how do we read coordinates. How to read coordinates is that you have to use the 1-10 numbers on the left side and the letters 1-12 on the bottom. For example: your looking for a animal in the zoo and you can’t found it so you use the map to find it. It would be B5.

Lastly, we had to be in pairs and make another copy of a document to draw a map and get your partner to find objects/places.

I enjoyed doing this task. I did well at making a copy of the task. I need to improve on adding more details into the document.

## Place Value Subtraction

This week for Miss White maths group we learned how to subtract by using place value.

What is place value? Place values are the numerical value of a digit. For example, the number 45 has 4 tens and 5 ones. We can also subtract three digit numbers by breaking the number into one, tens, and hundreds. We always have to remember to subtract from ones first.

An example: 547 – 213 = 334.

• 7 – 3 = 4
• 40 – 10 = 30
• 500 – 200 = 300
• 4 + 30 + 300 = 334.

First, Miss White groups had to discuss what place value is. Place values are the numerical value of a digit. For example, the number 45 has 4 tens and 5 ones. We can also subtract three digit numbers by breaking the number into one, tens, and hundreds. We always have to remember to subtract from ones first.

Next, Miss White told us to grab a whiteboard maker and a whiteboard to draw a place value house. We learned how to do minus by using a place value house. Miss White gave us a solution to solve. The solution we had to solve was : 456 – 326. The problem was that when we start with the ones and you can’t take away 7 from the 6 because it doesn’t give us an answer. How to solve it : we have to solve it by borrowing one tens or hundreds and place it into the ones.

Lastly, we had to make a copy of a google slide that talks about place value and you have to solve the solution. We had to solve 16 by using minus to make it harder because we did addition last week and last term.

I enjoyed learning about place value. I did well at explanning what place value is. I need to improve on adding more details and telling others how I worked it out.

Here is my work :

## Maths Problem

This week for Miss White’s Math’s group we learned about how to answer word problems and showing how we worked (solved) the problem.

Math’s Problem is a mathematical problem is a question that needs a solution and can be represent, analyzed, and possibly solved, with the methods of mathematics.

First, we had to discuss in our math group what maths problem is. Math’s Problem is a mathematical problem is a question that needs a solution and can be represent, analyzed, and possibly solved, with the methods of mathematics. For example: 2000+204 = 2204.

Next, we had to answer some questions and write down how I worked out the answers. For example : I used multiplication. 6 x 4 = 24, 6 x 20 = 120, 24 + 120 = 144.

Then, Miss White showed us a google slide called Maths Problems. In the google slide it shows us that we had to solve or fix the problem so our teacher knows which one we are stuck on. For example : if a box of pencils contains 24 pencils, how many are in 6 boxes. I got stuck on this one until I realised I had to use addition, multiplication, division, and takeaways.

Lastly, when we solved all of the questions there was this next slide and we had to find a partner to do it with. I had to write down easy, hard, or medium maths questions for my partner to answer like I’m challenging him.

I enjoyed doing this task. I did well at typing the questions for my partner. I need to improve on showing them more information of how I worked it out.

## 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.

## Maths Problems

This week for Miss White’s maths group we learned about maths problems and to answer word problems and show your working it out.

Maths Problem is a problem that can be represented, and possibly solved, with the methods of mathematics. For example : A train travels 240 km in 4 hours. What is the average speed of the train? The answer will be 60km.

First, we had to discuss in a group what maths problem is? Maths Problem is a problem that can be represented, and possibly solved, with the methods of mathematics.

Next, we had to answer some questions and write down how I worked out the answers. For example : I used multiplication. 6 x 4 = 24, 6 x 20 = 120, 24 + 120 = 144.

## Bar Graph

This week for Maths I learned about how to create a Bar Graph using results from a tally chart & to use PPDAC (Problem, Plan, Data, Analysis, and Conclusion/Communication) cycle to do a class investigation.

First I had to talk in a group about statistics? Statistics is to collect and do data to draw conclusions. For example : How do you get to school? The answer will be car, walk, bus, or bike. Lots of people get to school with cars.

Next I had to think about in the group what does PPDAC, it stands for Problem (Main Question), Plan (What are you measuring, who are you getting data from, questions), Data (collect data from target audience), Analyse (sort data, draw up graph, what do you notice?), Conclusion (final interpretation, new question?).

Afterwards I had to answer all of the class questions. The question was what’s your favourite colour?, How many people live in your house?, What month is your birthday?, Can you ride a bike?. For how many people live in your house, the answer is 10 because 10 people live in my house.

Lastly I had to draw/make 4 tally charts and 4 bar graphs using the data collected by the class question. I also had to write down 5 “I notice” statements.

I enjoyed learning about bar graphs. I did well at making a bar graph on a google meet. I need to improve on adding more questions or details to it.

## Basic Facts Boxes

Today in week 10 I learned about Basic Facts Boxes and I did Basic Facts Boxes.

Basic Number Facts is basically the same as Basic Facts Boxes. For example : 0 + 0 to 9 + 9 for addition and their subtractive opposites, and 0 x 0 to 9 x 9 for multiplication.

First I had to go on a worksheet (that records the data) that shows Basic Facts Boxes. For example : it shows the subject.

Next I had to go and choose one of the subjects I wanted to start off with. For example : x, +, -, and divisions. I picked the multiplication because it looks and feels like a good reason to start off with.

Then I had to pick if I wanted the multiplication to be in order (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,1o) or in randoms (2,5,8,10,3,4). I picked an order because I love to be in order. I’ll try and do random things in the next basic facts boxes next week.

Lastly I had to click onto check (checks all of your answers if it’s right) to see the answer is right. For example : 1+1 = 2 and the answer turned green.

I enjoyed doing this task. I did well at getting them all right. I need to improve on doing hard mode instead of easy mode.

## Basic Facts Boxes

This week I did Basic Facts Boxes.

First I had to pick a subject befores putting in the answer. For example : There are +, -, x, and divisions. I picked multiplication because I think it’s a great way to start.

Lastly I had to press check to see if my answer was correct. I got 100/100 because I have been learning my basic facts while I am away from school.

I enjoyed doing Basic Facts Boxes. I did well at figuring out the answer. I need to improve on doing divisions next.
