We are learning about solving skills and how to use our problems. I will give you one of my questions and answers. Here are the ideas that some of the students had. How many people do they think will visit each activity? Room 5 thinks one-quarter of the people at the gala will have a ride on the merry go-round, Room 6 thinks one fifth of the people will go to the ball-throwing stall, Room 7 thinks about half of the people will go play the gumboot throw, Room 8 thinks children likes to get their face painted. About half the people at the gala will be children, and about half the children at the gala will have their face painted & Room 8 thinks lots of people at the gala will get hungry. Three quarters of the people will visit the food stall.
First, Miss White told us to go to our figure it out slides and there are 14 slides to complete. Our task was to make a box using these materials. You need: A Classmate, Light Cardboard, Different shaped small boxes, Paints, Crayons, Or felt tip pens, Tape, Scissors, A ruler & Square grid paper. I went to the figure it out on slides.
Next, I had to finish slide 9 to 14. Slide 14 question was: Last year, Te Rata School held their gala in a nearby park that was this size and this shape. We had to figure out which one is bigger. The first one was 60 metres, 100 metres, 75 metres, 30 metres, 25 metres and 30 metres. The second one is 60 metres and 90 metres. For the first one I did 60 x 100 x 75 x 25 x 30 = 10125000000 and the second one is 60 x 90 = 5400. I picked the first one because it was bigger than the second one.
Lastly, I had to go on our figure it out slides and check through our work just to make sure we don’t make mistakes
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.
