Maths Problem Solving: Week 3 Term 4

WALT: Find a fraction of a number

Here is another Maths Problem Solving presentation that I made. This
Presentation is about fractions again but except we had to simplify for example
42 - 21 = 21 21 over 42. Simplify: 21 divide by 7 = 3  42 divide by 7 = 6
So: 3 over 6  3 divide by 3 = 1 6 divide by 3 = 2 so the answer is 1/2.

Maths Problem Solving: Week 2 Term 4

WALT: Find a fraction of a number

This Week for our maths problem solving presentation we did fractions again. Fraction's
is sort of like splitting but your not. Here is an example 5/6 of 18 =? Here is
how I got the answer 18 divide by 6 = 3 x 5 = 15 so your answer is 15.

Maths Problem Solving Week 1: Term 4

WALT: Find a fraction of a number

Today in this presentation I learnt about fractions. Fractions is like splitting
numbers into half but it's more different. For example 1/2 of 50 it actually
easy because the answer is 25 because what is half of 50? 25. Another different
example is 2/4 of 20? This is much more different then 1/2 of 50. Here is how I
solved 2/4 of 20. 20 divide by 4 = 5 x 2 = 10 so 10 is your anwser.

The action or process of adapting or being adapted

Adaptation means like when you adapt something for example you give birth or maybe there is a child without parents and you adapt them it's sort of like giving birth but it's just that your not giving birth your adapting. Another example is adaptation but adaptation of an animal. Animals adaptation is when surviving in it's environment. A polar bear is one of the best at surviving because in the winter when it's snowing it's hard to see them because there so white in other word's camouflage.

Fear factor

Just today this morning we did something crazy and man believe me it was crazy but then sooner on it is was just another one off our teacher’s tricks.

This morning I came into room 6 literacy as usual. But nothing was normal we did something weird today we had our own fear factor. But then I remembered last time when I did this challenge the teacher brang out lollies instead of gross and revolting creatures and food. Then Mr Goodwin told us when he picked four students that you will be drinking and eating swamp water and frog eggs I was disgusted by hearing that.

Just then he went to go get the swamp water and frog eggs but once he brang it out everybody started yelling out EWWWWWWW!!!!!!! And then they started saying it’s tuna it’s tuna but it didn't look like tuna to me then that's when it hit me. I knew it was a trick by looking at it and once he brang it I was right. He didn’t tell the four contestants that what it was he just gave it to them and once he said go they all started eating well only two ate slowly. And at the end one of the boys won the competition.

Once I heard that we were writing about fear factor I knew that he was going to get us fake food but then he said that you are eating swamp water and frog eggs for this competition. Then he said that it was real then I thought he was telling us the truth but once he brang it out I found out that it was fake.   

San Diego zoo introduction

This morning we took a very very unusual tour in our very own classroom. We went on a heck of a tour visiting new creatures that we didn't even knew and we found out facts about them like what do they eat what are they good at and how much off them are left in this world. Would it be better taking a tour in your classroom or in the outside world?     

Today we wrote about taking a tour but in our own classroom we took a tour online. And if you read the introduction it doesn't say that we took a tour in our own classroom online. Online we visited a place with creatures we didn't even know well some off them we did know about anyway we learnt facts about them and what they eat it was a great experience.

Our task for this presentation was to write a description about the polar region
In other words Antarctica and arctic. We had to write the differences between
them for example the arctic is a little warmer then Antarctica because Antarctica
Is more colder. At the end of the presentation we had to write three facts about

Blood moon

Just A few days ago me and my family except for my sister she was at her tuition went somewhere. We first had to pick my sister off course because she finished early that day. Her tuition usually finishes at 5 pm but instead she finished at 12:00 am. After we picked her up we went to a beach and stayed there for quiet a while like maybe 1 hour. After that we just went to more places to find a place to have a picnic. Just when we found the place we had our picnic and played a few games and spend time talking and after that we left to the beach we came in the first place. We stayed there until 11 O'clock that's when we saw the blood moon appear but it looked a little yellow strange.
This is what a total eclipse looks like.  This is the total eclipse of October 27, 2004 via Fred Espenak of NASA, otherwise known as Mr. Eclipse.  Visit Fred's page here.
Sorry I couldn't find the 2015 blood moon and as you can see on the bottom left corner it says 2004.
