WALT: Investigate situations that invole chance and identifying possible outcomes
This is my activity for week 9/10, this presentation was all about Probability about things that can happen unlikely, likely or certain. My favourtie slide would probley be slide 7 because it was really fun thinking about things that would happen to me.

Game Reflection

In extension this term our focus is on coding, so a few weeks ago me and my partner: Alisha have started our game for scratch where we had to make a space game. The worst problem that we had was broadcasting and making sure we had the right coding.
On the first level me and my partner: Alisha, we each did a job to finish the level, so I did the backgrounds and half of the coding while Alisha did the other half  and did the drawings of the sprites.
Problem: The problem that we had throughout the game was broadcasting because me and my partner still had problem increasing our knowledge for broadcasting.
Solution: Zoe from OMG Tech taught us there was an easier way to broadcast on scratch and she also helped us to learn more about broadcasting.

My favourite part about coding this Term for Extension was that I really got to bond with my partner and that I increased my knowledge for coding more than last term.

Space Readings

A few weeks ago the Extension group visited a website and each person read an articale and the articale that I read was How have Advances in space technology helped us on Earth


Here what I found out:
1.In the story How have Advances in Space Technology helped us on earth I have learned that the two GOES Satellites that are operating on the west and east side of the United states of America and can let us track and warn people in vulnerable places when or where a hurricane will hit.
2.I have also learned that Satellites can operate how we can see and locate oceans, deserts, Cities but some people on earth have GPS and can locate the places much easier.
3.And one thing that I have learned is that Satellites have shown that the ozone on the earth are disappearing over some parts of the Earth and are trying to find a way to use less damaging chemicals to our atmosphere.
4. The last thing that I have learned from this story is that Two other satellites: TOPEX/Poseidon and Jason 1 have been studying the oceans, and they help us understand the complex movement of ocean water.

Making a school Garden

Today my group the Iphones were busy trying to find out what project we should do for our Inquiry:Now That’s Thinking. My group was torn between the choices of making a cafeteria or making a flower garden. When we finally made our decision we decided that it would be easy to make a flower garden to help the appearance of the school when visitors come past, or when people walk past they can see what we have been working on.


For the past few weeks the Iphones have been planning and making design's about what the garden will look like when it is finished. The iphones are hoping that we can finish it before the term finish's.

Mean, Median,Mode

WALT: I will identify patterns and trends in context, within and between data sets; communicating findings, using data displays. Find the mean, median, mode and the range which is part of analysing data.
Statistics                                                           name:Sheena

WALT- Identify the mean, median and mode within a collection of data

Activity One
Answer the questions in a different colour

The definition of the mean in a statistical investigation is commonly referred to as the average. It is the total of all the data divided by the amount of data shown.
For example: if we have this range of data 3,5,7,1,2,3,6,8

3+5+7+1+2+3+6+5  = 32  = 4
             8                      8

  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
3,7,8,4,2,6,5,4,3,9= 51 divided by 10=5.1
  1. Find the mean in the set of numbers
4,12,5,6,11,9,5=52 divided by 7=7.4
  1. Find the mean in this tally chart: 10,12,4,2=28 divided by 7=4

  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
24,12,16,18=70 divided by 4=17.5
  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
5,9,12,4,10,7=47 divided by 6= 7.8
  1. CHALLENGE QUESTION: Find the mean within this data, use the frequency table to help you

Activity Two
Answer the questions in a different colour

The definition of the median is the middle number within a set of numbers that have been put in order from size (biggest to smallest or smallest to biggest)
For example: 2,6,4,1,9 = 1,2,4,6,9 and the middle number is 4.
BUT say if there is more than one middle number… the median is found by taking the number midway between the middle pair of numbers:
3,6,1,4,9,2 = 1,2,3,4,6,9 → 3 + 4 = 3.5
                                             2

Find the median in these sets of numbers

  1. 10,14,17,12,19,11,16, 14 is the middle number
  2. 34,42,37,31,40: 37 is the middle number

  1. 101, 167,138,124,198,149,  143 is the middle number

  1. 54, 58,52,57,53,60, the middle number is 55.5

  1. 1001, 1094, 1023, 1065, 1038, 1027, 1042: the middle number is 1038

  1. Find the median within this tally chart

Pets owned by students

The middle number from the tally chart from above is: 7







Activity Three
The mode is the most frequent number in a set of data. The number that occurs most often.
For example: In a set of numbers 3, 7, 8, 4, 2, 6, 5, 4, 3, 9 there is two modes, 3 and 4 because they appear twice in the data set.
Note- There can either be 0, 1 or 2 modes. If there are 3 or more numbers occur the same number of times, there is no mode.

Find the mode in these sets of numbers
  1. 2, 1, 5, 3, 7, 8, 5, 3 ,9 the most common numbers are 5 and 3
  2. 1, 5, 3, 2, 9 ,4, 1, 6, 8, 0, the most common number is 1
  3. 23, 45, 78, 12, 45, 67, 32, 46, 93, 12, the most common numbers are 45 and 12
  4. 101, 121, 123, 145, 167, 121, 139, 145, 176, the most common numbers are 121 and 145
  5. 394, 273, 219, 294, 183, 291, 273, 288, 271, the most common number is 273





Find the Range in these number:
  1. 32,41,37,34,40: 41-32=9
  2. 100,92,96,94,98: 100-92=8
  3. 72,79,76,74,69,80: 80-69=11
  4. 54,57,52,55,58: 58-52=6
112,125,115,111,120: 125-111=14

Marking my test helps me to improve my learning

Today in Mrs Tele'a's Maths class my group Tapaono marked our IKAN test. This time round when I did the the test it was more relaxing then last time where we had to look up at the T.V screen and try and keep up.   This time we used our chromebooks and earphones and we could do it twice to double check if we had the right answer.


The next day after we did the test we had to sit in our small group and mark our results with the teacher. I am kinda proud of my results because in some parts I made some silly mistakes and it was really challenging and now I know that next time when I do a IKAN test I have to improve myself more on fractions and place value.

I'm glad I got to see my results and even mark my work because it helps me to know exactly what I need to work on.

My fun days with the Year 7's

On Wednesday the 24th the year 8's of Pt England school went to a leadership camp for 3 days, and since the Year 8's are gone for 3 days the year 7's had the few days of fun ahead of them. Some activities that the Year 7's did was:
* Making Truffles
* Making Marshmallow towers, and making a cup tower
* Art
Wednesday: Wednesday was the first day the Year 7's had for activities, but before we could start the activites we had to sort out three groups. Here are the three groups names:
* Munchies
* Churries
* Fobalicious
My group's name was Churries and our group leaders were, Samoa and Javan. Our first activity was Making Truffles with Whare Kelly. Making the Truffles was really fun because my group made a very big mess and every team made a pile of Truffles and today we will be eating it for our shared lunch after Morning Tea.

On the last day with the Year7's we will be having a shared lunch in our classroom and watch a movie straight after morning tea, and the best part is right after lunch we will be having our prize giving for the winning group. I have really enjoyed spending time with the Year 7's.

Making Truffles

Today my group: Churries made Truffles. The ingredients that we needed to make the truffles was:
* 1x Super wine Biscuits
*1x can Condensed Milk
* 1/4 cup cocoa
* 3/4 cup choc chips
* 1 cup Desiccated coconut
When we started to make the Truffles we all started to laugh because the first step was: Crush the Super Wine Biscuits and when to started to crush the biscuits my group accidentally made a hole in the plastic bag and crumbs kept falling out. The last step which was the hardest and the messiest was when we had to make a tiny ball with the mix that we made from the biscuits and cocoa, the reason that was the hardest was that when we started to make the ball it felt lumpy and made a huge mess on our hands, but the bright side out of everything was that it tasted yummy at the end.

Here is a picture of the steps and ingredients:
