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.

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.

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.

Is there a problem?

This week during Maths I did Is there a problem? What I had to do was answer 8 word problems and then show my working out. I then had to blog it. These word problems were really easy except the last slide. The last slide (8) was really tricky to divide the numbers so I tried my very best to find an answer for the question.

My highlight was Actually completing the task and doing well on my tests this week, I feel good about my writing test being good because I love writing!

My low-light was having to answer the hard questions like slide 8, because I was struggling to divide 432 by 6.

Something i’ll work on next time is to always find new strategies to each equation.

Star test – Reflection

This week during maths I did a star test. What we had to do was move our tables facing the whitboard. Then we had to open our chromebooks and get  NZCER open on a tab. Whaea Saf came around with our code on a piece of paper, she handed those out while we were sitting. We had to put our code in and wait for the teachers instrustions. Next we had to go over the examples, after we began our test. I was a bit stuck on some questions but I managed to work them out. The questions were like what is the name of the picture or fill in the blanks. 

My highlight was getting a nice sleep and then waking up having a fresh shower, ready to start my test. I was all prepared and fresh to start testing week. 

My lowlight was having to actually take the test, because taking tests are very frustrating and hard to complete.

Something i’ll work on next time is to be humble and not to nagg about the test.

Stage 7 Word problems

Task description: Today for Math our math group worked on some stage 7 word problems. It was really confusing and hard at first but when we started to find out ways to solve them it was easy. I was a bit stuck on slide 2 but my friend helped me a lot. Maths can sometimes be really tricky, because you don’t know what’s about to come, what I mean by this is you think that the maths word is easy because of how it looks, but really it takes some time to solve it. One thing I really love about Maths is that you get to make your own question and that you also have to figure it out yourself. Because some mathematicians don’t just solve their own maths question straight away, they actually have to solve the problems themself.
Quote of the day: You don’t always know the answer to your own question, you have to solve it.
My highlight was being able to solve all the problems really fast even though our group was stuck on it for a bit. I had a really good maths session again and I loved how well our group shared their ideas with each other so I don’t have a low light from today’s maths lesson. As I said before it was a good maths lesson and I don’t have anything to work on today. After that I completed the task, and I posted it on our 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.

Marvellous Measurments

Today for maths I did Marvellous Measurments. It was really fun to do and it was pretty easy. I really enjoyed this task so much! My friend Vika helped me with my maths. We are now learnign to do Measurments because we already finished fractions. Please leave a positive comment on my blog. Thank you!
