All about me

This is my All About Me poster. I made it using Google Drawing. I learnt to take a photograph of myself.

The Chopsticks Challenge: Measuring the number of centimetres from where the sweets were dropped

This graph shows the numbers of centimetres from where the starting bowl was and where the sweets were dropped. We used chop sticks to carry each sweet from one bowl to the other bowl. The bowls were measured 1 metre apart. Ta'ani and Joseph's sweets were the closest to the bowls. Sky's sweet was 22cm from the starting spot. Her's was the furthest sweet away. Shailah, Vahoi and Joseph's sweets had a similar measurement. The rest of the class did not drop their sweets. The winegums were the easiest sweets to carry on the chop sticks because they were not slippery and were thick round the outside. The pebbles were slippery because they were not the same thickness all the way round. The pebbles were thicker / fatter in the middle and thinner round the outside.

4 x 5 = 20


 This is my poster on using multiplication arrays. Today I have been learning about the multiplication symbol. When I get given a problem like this I need to count the rows across and then count the column down. Then I multiply the numbers together to get the answer.

Understanding the x symbol


 Today as a rich task in Maths I learnt what the x symbol means. The times symbol means... If I was given an array to solve I would need to count the rows across and then the columns down to work out my answer.  4 x 4 = 16
