Maths Problem

Today for maths I had to do a maths problem. And my problem was Mane needs to buy 114 socks for school rugby team. Socks come in packets of 6. How many packs does he need to buy? So I explained the way I worked it out was that I made a table with one side packets and the other socks. So what I done is I knew that if there were 6 in a pack than I would've had to count in 6. So I started with 1 and 6 and carried in. Once I got to 18x6 than that's when I found out that it equalled 114. So than I got Mane had to get 18 packets of socks for the rugby team. Than I wrote 18x6=114.

Uniquely Kawakawa

This pass few weeks we were doing a project called Uniquely Kawakawa. Uniquely Kawakawa was about our unique our town. So we got the choice to present our work in a goggle slide, google drawing and google map. So Tahurangi, Flo and I done a google slide which I will post another time to my blog. One thing about this trip was that it was very scary to talk in front of a group of kids. I think it was quite scary. We got to go to a lot of places to get this done. My favourite part of the trip was when we got one of the workers at our train station got to talk to us about how it became a train station. So anyways that is all I will talk to you about our project. Hope you like our video.

My Maths Eyes

This week we have been looking at Maths eyes. We had to do this triangles picture. So the question was how many triangles can you see. Like normal some of us just counted the little triangles when there were more triangles. One of our teachers said to look closely so we ended up seeing big triangles made of little triangles. Some of us did count the others beside the little ones, but most of us just did the little ones. I was one of them. I saw 22 triangles, if you can figure out where all the triangles are then comment down below.

A day with Dash

Today in class we had a special visitor. His name is Dash. Dash is a digital coded robot.
You have this special app to him with. You could make him dance, talk and move. We had to learn how he moves and talks. To make him do all these things, on that special app, it has these blocks that say what he does. When Whaea Sally showed us on the mat how it works, it was pretty cool he was dancing, talking and moving like a normal person.

The thing I liked the most was how he danced and said hello to us. But the thing I didn't like was how when Dash goes forward it is like he is running after you. The easy thing about this experience was putting the blocks together. The hard thing was choosing what to make him do. It was hard doing that because only allowed 4 moves. Thanks Whaea Sally for that limit it was very hard. 

Thank you to Mrs Henare for letting us use your iPad for the app to control, and thank you to Tania Courts for letting us use him. Without you my class and I wouldn't of been able to have this experience.
