Walt : Using the internet locate, select and evaluate the text for specific information about how to use a baton in relay races

Today we were reading Patina. In the chapter 9 Patina and the defenders did a relay race with a baton. So today I made a drawing on how to play relay race with a baton.

Ghost Maths



WALT:  Use a  calculator with accuracy

I was able to use a calculator to add all of the equipment and clothing together from the Rebel Sports website . Also it was very hard to get exactly two thousand but at the end i got to 2000. I thought this was a very good maths task because when you get older you will be doing this all the time.

Now I will try and use more expensive equipment and clothing instead of buying lots of different cheap stuff . Also I plan to use this when I'm older.

Speeches 2017


WALT: deliberately choose words to create an effect on the audience

My Reflection 

I was able to use persuasive words to make my speech persuasive and then 
put them into sentence to make my speech. Also I was able to use some emotive words to effect the audience.I thought making my speech was supper hard because when you finished your speech you wasn't done because if you didn't add emotive words or persuasive you had to add them in to effect the audience.

Next time I will add more of my emotive words because I only had 3 or 4 
also I will try and remember and add more emotive and persuasive.

Statistics

 

Walt : display data on histogram, tally chart

  • Walt : interpret information from histograms and tally marks eg. medium, mode, range, mean

I was able to put the information from the class scores onto a histogram and tally chart


  • The range for the first name scores was from 4-20
  • The range for the last name scores was from  2-21
  • The range for the full name scores was from 9-31
  • The mode for the first name scores was 8 
  • The mode for the last name scores was 7 
  • The mode for the full name scores is 22
  • The medium for the first name scores is 10
  • The medium for the last name scores is 9.5
  • The medium for the full name scores is 21
  • The mean is when you add all of the number or data together, then you count how many numbers you have and then divide it by that number and that is your answer.
  • The median  is when you put the numbers in order from least to great then you find the middle number  and then that is  your answer, but if you have two numbers in the middle you add those together and then divide it by two then that is your answer.
  • The mode is the score that appears the most times.

I found this tricky  because we had to keep repeating again and again because we keep pushing the wrong number on the calculator  so i had a buddy to help me.
Next time i want to do this again because it was fun .
Here is the frog Video about mode mean and median
