Numeracy Reflection T3W7 2017



Numeracy Reflection

Frac-Ge-Bot: This week my maths class made 2D robots on our google drive. We had to design our robots with the following shapes: Squares, Rectangles, Triangles, Circles, Hexagons, Pentagons and Diamonds. I didn't use all of those shapes but I did use some and we also had to colour it.
Now for the maths part, so for all the shapes (and colours) we had to make a fraction out of them. For example lets say I used 10 shapes and 4 of them were circles, that would be 4/10 circles.

Here is my work:

Fraction Problem Solving: This week we got given a slide show (different for each math group) and we had to fill out the questions. As you may have seen the slide show was based on fractions. These questions were fun and easy to do. 
Here is my work:

Writing Reflection T3W5 2017

Writing Reflection


Video Notes: This week on a site called video notes allowed us to write down things whilst watching a video. The video we watched was salmon life cycle. We had to write down what we heard and put it in our own words. Here are is the facts I've gathered.


Salmon are one of the most prized fish in New Zealand. In December you might see some salmon in the water.


Salmon spend two years at sea and come back for a month so they can go to their spawning ground.Whilst doing this they try to relax wherever they can to have a break from the strong corrunt.


When they get close to their spawning ground they all group together waiting for a good time.

They hang quite close together.

The fish have become dark they haven't eaten since they were at sea.

The hens are female salmon the jacks are boy salmon.

The hen make a hole in the ground for the eggs when she is ready to lay the eggs jacks will fertilize it. The jacks will fight off other jacks.

They lay eggs up to 4 thousand per time.

The baby salmon are smaller than a 10c coin.

The next time you will see them they will be a big size.
