my maths assessment.

W.A.L.T: relate tables, graphs and equations to linear and simple quadratic relationships found in number and spatial patterns.

my maths assessment

This is my maths assessment task I did for my maths prove it. All I did is figured out how much each cost and then filled in the chart. 

I think I got to extend abstract because I got 100 on most of the task I got and I could teach some If I had to.

My next step is to be able to complete my goal faster so I can move on faster.

Koru Games 2015

Over the last 3 days I have been competing in Koru Games for 2015 I have been playing netball.

 I have really enjoyed playing against all the different teams because it was cool seeing all the different schools play and having fun together.

Thinking back to the beginning of the year, I think I have really improved because I have gotten better at the sport in general.

Something I will remember  is all the smiles when we won the first game.

I am learning to solve simultaneous equations

I am learning to solve simultaneous equations

    x + 7y  = 15                      (8,1)                 1. inline your equations.
12x +20y =7                         ( y,x )                2. swap the x's and y's for the real numbers
                                                                       3.times the numbers that need to be
                        o no                                                 ( eg. 20y:20 times 1)
                        o yes                                        4. find out if it is a yes or a no

my next step is: to finish my goal faster and better.

I think I got to a solo level extended abstract because I got 100 on IXL, and I can solve simple simultaneous equations which I have to do to get the year 9 standard.

Overall I think i did a pretty good job and it was lots of fun.

finding the circumference of a circle


                    So all you need to remember is this formula:  C= 2 x 3.14 x R 

                    So is the R is 5 then all you do is use the formula....
                    So all I am doing is 5 x 3.14= 15.70
                    Now you take 15.70 x 2 = 31.40

my poem

The cold icy wind blows the freshly laded snow thought out the winters day, as the penguins feet waddle around to find some fish to eat, they look so cute thought and through out the day, but it is so cold as they are waddling they can see a Pole bear in the distance, with a Benin on, but when they find there pride position  everything is worth it, and you know penguins love fish like a little boy love Christmas.

the language features I use are:

  • Alliteration - I used this language feature because : I had been working on it.
  • simile - I used this language feature because : I went to the breakout on it.
  • hyperbole - I used this language feature because : I went to the breakout on it.
I think got to relational because i didn't describe it that well.

                                                  square roots 

                                               Image result for square root 81

the way you work this out is you think to yourself what times it self = 81.
so ..........
9 x 9 = 81 so ...
the answer is......

now the opposite ...


                                                                       9 squared 
                                                   now you need to just do the opposite ....
                                                                so all you do is 9x9 = 81 
                                                                     so the answer is ...

Merit evidence : Can do, Libraian

On Wednesday it was my week off from librarian duty but I still went in to see if Miss Ward needed any help with anything. It turned out that she did so I helped her with taping the books so they don't rip and fall to bits. I showed leadership by being proactive going and helping out in the school.

Merit evidence: must do, being a role model

On Tuesday I was showing leadership by helping some little kids because they didn't know where the pozie box was and they also didn't know what shoe to put on what foot. They seemed happy that I was there and the little kid then showed all his friends what to do.

Merit Evidence: Can Do, Peer Mediation

On Tuesday when it was my turn to do my peer mediation duty the two boys that were also on never turned up.  I used my initiative to find someone else to help me on my duty.  I was successful in finding a year 7 girl to help me.  We had no one come up to us on duty but that is a good thing as it means that there has been no problems during lunch time.

Merit Evidence: Can Do, Librarian

On Wednesday I had my librarian duty and this week I did a job that I hadn't done before.  So I had to learn how to do it and I listen carefully to Miss Ward.  The job was to put tape on the different parts of the book to ensure the pages didn't fall out were protected.  Miss Ward said I did a good job and was pleased with my work.  It was fun to do a new job and it shows me how much work is involved with being a librarian.

On  Monday we had full school assembly and Molly and I had to get everything ready for the assembly, we had to get all the bags ready with pozi's for the Teachers, Principal and Deputy Principals.  It was very busy and a felt like a mad rush but we worked together and go the job done. In the assembly I got a surprise as they called my name out to come up and collect my badge for being House Points Coordinator and Mrs Trotter shook my hand.  I felt proud and important.

Merit Evidence: Zone Swimming

On Tuesday I went to the South West Swimming Zones representing Oakland's School in the backstroke.  It was exciting to be there but I was quite nervous waiting for my race.  But once my race started I forgot about my nerves and swam as quick as I could.  I finished 5th in my race and I was pleased with my effort.  It was lots of fun but also I found it challenging.

Merit evidence: Can do, peer mediation

On Tuesday I did peer mediation after returning from Technology and I was on in the junior School.  As I am a group leader I got all the members of my group together and we went to the junior part of the school to do our peer mediation duty.  I showed leadership by showing the members of my team how to use the peer mediation form and I think I explained it well as when I checked if they understood they all new the answers.  I enjoyed my peer mediation even though we didn't get any issues but it was fun teaching the other members of my group.

Merit evidence: must do, be considerate on the bus to and back from technology.

On tuseday we went to technology and on the bus on the way there a lot of people that were being very loud and not showing respect or leadership qualities.  Rebecca J and I made sure that we were only talking to each other quietly as required but it was hard because the people behind us on the bus kept on trying to talk to us, we tried our best to ignore and when we got to Lincoln we asked those people only to talk to us if we were next to them.  On the way back from technology the bus was much quieter and most people were just talking to the person next to them about what they had done at technology. Technology is fun and I learn a lot.

Merit Evidence: Peer Mediation
Today I remembered to turn up to my duty,but the two boys that were on duty with me didn't so I had to go and find them. When I found them we went and did our duty together.  Over our duty period we had only one boy come up to us as he couldn't find any one to play with, so we all went and found him some friends to play with.  When our time was up we all went and found the other students who were on duty next. I felt good to see that little boy have such a fun time with his new friends.
