Word Problems

This week for Maths I did Word problems. We had to re-create the questions that were on the paper onto slides, and then work them out. There were about 20 or more questions that we had to answer. Whoever finished all the questions will get a prize. Whaea Saf still hasn’t chosen the people who won the prize. The maths questions were quiet easy but the first 4 were challenging for me.

My highlight was having so much easy work this week because, I was suffering this term.

My lowlight was having to suffered with my Best friend Zaria.

DLO – Make It Work – Shoe Rack – The 5 Musketeers

Introduction: This term for our DLO team 5 had to make a project that would improve team 5/school. Our theme was “Make It Work”. Everyone in team 5 had to get into groups of 5-6 people. Each group had to make one project each. What we basically had to do was find a project that we wanted to create, research about it, and then create it. Our group was called “The 5 Musketeers”. This term we are studying TECHNOLOGY. We’re asking the question,  ‘What can we design, build, create or change to improve school life at Pt England School?’. Working with a group of people we had to present a movie. Using the question given to us to create something we can use at school that could be for fun or to benefit our school. This is because our theme for this Term is ‘Make it work’. Our group included: Me (Swaimah), Zaria, Vika, Eleni, Lynette.

Plan: We first planned together on a piece of paper and discussed what our project is going to be. We all agreed to do a shoe rack because we have noticed that outside our classroom the shoes have been a mess. People have been throwing their shoes like animals. We thought that we could make a shoe rack exactly like mini cubbyholes. We sketched out the shoe rack and how it would look . We first thought that we would make a shoe rack with a storage place at the bottom. But then we knew it’ll take a lot of time to create. 

Supplies: We had to research the materials and wood for our project. We went online on Mitre-10 and Bunnings warehouse to find some materials. We found some wood and nails to use for our project. Our team came together and collected all the supplies. We all agreed with the prices that the materials were. We had a price limit so we kept the budget low. 

Problem: We had a problem with the project. Our problem was that our teacher who kindly went and bought the materials said that we couldn’t make our whole project because they didn’t have enough money. We just rolled with it but I was a bit sad because we worked hard for weeks/months and we couldn’t make our full project. Our teacher only gave us 9-10 planks of wood to use and some nails. 

Create Project: We planned out our project and placed them together. We then had to screw the wood planks together and then figure out if we did it right. It took some time to actually think really hard about where the planks of wood would go. It took us about 30 minutes or so to figure out our shoe rack. We then screwed it all together and made our final project. We then painted the shoe rack to give it a bit of a cool vibe.

Algebra – Week 7

Task description: This week during Maths, we are learning to find the appropriate strategy to solve each word problem. We were also looking at solving problems that involve multiplication and division and using equations to express a problem. My hightlight was finishing my maths really fast because it was so easy. Everything about this task was pretty easy and self explanatory so personally I don’t have a low light. I don’t have anything to work on for this week either. After that I completed the task, and posted it on my blog. I enjoyed this task very much, and I hope to do more like this soon. Hope you enjoyed. Please leave a comment; thank you for visiting my blog.

Enchanted Forest

Swaimah – Enchanted Forrest 

Today for Writing I did enchanted forest. What we had to do was make a story about us being in an enchanted forest. We had to choose names for creatures and places we see while looking for a treasure. My treaure was the jasper chest. Press on the link to see my writing.

My highlight was finding names for the creatures and the treasure.

My lowlight was having to think about what i’m going to write about.

My Word Problems

We learnt so much about word problems. We had to create out own set of slides because our teacher said so. We made questions including division, multiplication, addition and subtraction. I hope you bloggers enjoy my work.

My highlight was picking out my own word problems.
My low-light was having to find out the answers to my own question.

Christmas Word problems

Today for maths I did Christmas Word problems. It was quick hard to solve the last problem because it took some time to really think about the prices. I worked really hard and ended up finishing my math.

My highlight is customizing my slides, because it”s fun learning new tricks.

My lowlight is having to take a long time to answer the last question.

Riddle time!

This week during Maths I did Riddle time! It was really easy to complete but the slide was a bit tricky for me. I was struggling to find the last answer because it kinda didn’t make sense. I was really happy when I found out the last answer to the last slide. I would like to do more riddles but if it was a bit easier. 

My highlight was completing the last slides, because I was struggling with finding the answer as the problem was a bit confusing. My low-light was taking a while finding one little answer to a riddle, but in the end I figured it out. I don’t have anything to work on this week as I’m proud of myself this week for maths and I think I did what I needed to do.
