Dangerous Decimals

Walt: identify the relationship between fractions and decimals

Decimals are fractions of 1 whole.
0.1 is 1/10.
0.01 is 1/100.

What is 2/10 as a decimal? 0.2

What is 6/10 as a decimal? 0.6

What is 7/100 as a decimal? 0.07

What is 18/100 as a decimal? 0.18

What is 1/1000 as a decimal? 0.001

What is 7/1000 as a decimal? 0.007

What is 24/100 as a decimal? 0.24

What is 55/100 as decimal? 0.55

What is 12/10 as a decimal? 0.12

0.5 + 0.3 = 0.8

0.6 + 0.2 = 0.8

0.7 + 0.5 = 1.2

0.5 - 0.1 = 0.4

0.3 + 0.9 = 1.2

5/10 + 0.5 = 1

1/10 + 0.47 = 0.57

5/100 + 0.21 = 0.26

Task Description: For this task I made a copy of the doc and then put it into my Math Folder. I then answered all of the word questions and moved onto the symbol questions. When I finished I posted it onto my blog with a Title, a Walt, a Task Description, and Labels.

Fabulous Fractions

We are learning to identify the relationship between fractions.

What is 2/4 of 50? 25

What is ½ of 50? 25

What is 4/4 of 8?   This is the same as 8/8

What is ⅕ of 10? 2

What is 2/10 of 10? 2

What is ⅓ of 12? 4

What is 2/6 of 12? 4

What is 1/13 of 26? 2

What is 2/26 of 26? 2

What do you notice about these fractions?
After the first one the second one has the same answer.

Show your working for the remainder of the problems

I have 2/16 of a cake at a birthday party. I keep going back for more and eat another  6/16 of a cake. What fraction of a cake have I eaten altogether? 2/16 + 6/16 = 8/16

⅓ + ⅔ =  ⅓ + ⅔ = 3/3

⅙ + 2/6 = ⅙ + 2/6 = 3/6

12/25 + 3/25 = 12/25 + 3/25 = 15/25

I have 5/21 of a cake left over from the party. Then I give 3/21 of a cake to my sisters. What fraction of a cake do I have left over? 5/21 + 3/21 = 8/21

½ + 2/4 =  1

3/6 + ⅔ = 1  ⅓
⅕ + 2/10 =  ⅖ / 4/10

Team building recount

Walt : use a variety of sentence structures and punctuation in our writing
Year 7 team building was fun. It was one of the funnest things i have ever done. We did all sorts of activities that brought people out of their shells. Let me tell you what happened.

The first things we did we're very productive like making a banner and creating a piece of material and put it around our wrist or around our calf or around our hair. We then had a chant to share with our banners. My group was called the purple panthers and the leaders were me and King. We got called up to share our our Chant. The year sevens counted us in and we said our chant: “Purple Panthers! Come at us we’ll knock you down! Purple panthers! We’re the ones who wear the crowns. Purple Panthers!” Clap, Clap, Stomp, Stomp, “Raahh”

My favourite activity though was the cooking. We made pikelets with a very simple recipe. The recipe was this:
1 cup of flour
1 cup of milk
1 egg
Me and King Mixed all the ingredients into a batter witch we could tell was ready because it was light and fluffy. We buttered up the pan and then we put in a ladle of batter and made it nice and round. I had such an amazing relationship the the spatula whenever i was about to flip i would go "1,2,3, and flip!". I turned the pike let over and the pike let was nice and brown. I turned it over again and it was brown on both sides it was ready to be decorated.

I went to the table where Ms. Sio and some girls were decorating the pikelets. I picked 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream, Chocolate chips, Jelly topping, and whipped cream. It was delicious and it made my mouth explode with it scrumptious taste. I think i had about three that day.

I think a few days after camp my stepmum’s friend came over and I decided you know what i’m going to make some pike lets for my brothers and Deb’s son (Deb is my stepmum's friend), and the recipe was so simple that I think it will stay with me forever. Thank you Ms. Sio for sharing the recipe with everyone and teaching me how to cook the pike lets.

Task Description: For this task I made a copy of a google doc and then i put it in my writing folder. WE were supposed to only do one thing about team building but i did one paragraph about 1 and the rest of the recount was about another.

Fractions Finale.

Fractions Finale

What is ½ the same as? 2/4

What is ⅓ the same as? 2/6

What is 2/4 the same as? 4/8

What is ⅙ the same as? 2/12

I want to add ½ with ¼. First I change ½ to 2/4 then I add

⅓ + ⅙. ⅓ = 2/6 + ⅙ = 3/6

¼ + ⅛.  ¼ = 2/8 + ⅛ = ⅜

How can I change ⅔ into sixths ( 4/6)?

How can I change ⅔ into twelfths (8 /12)

⅓ + ¼ = 7/12

⅓ = 4/12   ¼ = 3/12

⅓ + ⅕ = 8/15

⅓ = 5/15  ⅕ = 3/15

⅙ + ⅛ = 14/48
⅙ = 8/48   ⅛ = 6/48

⅓ + 1/7 = 10/21

¼ + ⅕ = 9/20

⅓ + ⅖ = 11/15

1/10 + 1/100 11/100

1/10 + 1/1000= 101/1000

Eleanor and the Dragon

In a land far away from the one we know, a land with dragons that breath fire, dragons that roam the sea and make it steam, dragons that burn the crops that farmers carefully planted trying to feed families. A land where men were essentially stronger and better than girls in every way possible. In this land there was a small, scared but kind girl called Eleanor. She had straight auburn hair that went down just above her waist. Light blue eyes that twinkled when she stood in the light and a small nose. As far as her parents knew she was the prettiest girl in the village.

One night she was awoken by the sound of three bell chimes then a pause and then three more bell chimes. “DRAGON RAID!” Yelled the chief. Eleanor grabbed her bucket and then rushed to the well. She never liked the violence she saw to the dragons. Her mother was in the front of the line she grabbed some water and dragged it to the fires on her house. Eleanor was about to gently dip her bucket into the water when she saw an unbelievable thing. A night dragon, one of the most rare species in the land was shot down. She dropped her bucket and then sped in the direction she saw the dragon fall. She quickly grabbed a dropped knife about the size of her hand. “ELEANOR!” she heard her mother scream “GET BACK HERE THIS INSTANT!” Eleanor didn’t even look back. She had to free that dragon. She had to.

When Eleanor found unevenly sliced and skewered trees all leading in one direction she figured that was where the night dragon was. He was in a little dark cavern that she and her friends often played in, she needed light so she grabbed a stick and ripped a long strip of her brown dress off. When she had made the torch she rubbed 2 rocks together and then sparked the torch to life. She hastily climbed down into the cave. When she found the dragon she nearly cried.

It had been gashed three times across the side of its torso. She assumed the dragon had been gashed by the trees. Eleanor forced herself to look away from the oozing gashes, and noticed the dragon was staring at her. she cautiously walked up close to the dragon. The dragon just stared at her.
“That's weird shouldn’t you growl or snarl?” Eleanor said
“Just finish me off already” the dragon replied
Eleanor dropped her knife. The dragon looked down at it and then looked back to her. Eleanor was gaping at the large male dragon.
“Well are you going to kill me” said the dragon
“You did it again!” said Eleanor “You talked!”
“Yes I did, all dragons can do it. So are you going to kill me or what”
“Wait what?” Eleanor said confused “Why would I kill you? I’m not like the other people I came to free you.” To prove it she picked up the knife and skillfully started to cut him loose. Then she carefully slid the rope across his body which was as black as the Night Sky yet it shimmered and glowed with stars.

Once he had been fully freed he gracefully but limply climbed across the cavern. She never noticed the glow worms before.
“Thank You” said the dragon
“No need to thank me.” said Eleanor “But may I ask you What is your name?”
“My name is Chardet”
“Well that's boring. I think i’ll call you Night Sky.”
“Night Sky. I like it”
Eleanor decided to see him every day and care for him. Until he was ready to go back to his own home.

The dragon raid was over when she got back, her plan was to play dumb when she got home. Her father and mother were talking to the chief. Eleanor silently tiptoed across to her room. She stashed the knife in her cabinet and climbed in bed. She ruffled up her hair, lied on her bed and worked hard on taking measured breaths. She heard the chief go and her parents walk over to her room.
“Oh.” said her mother “The heat must have gotten to me. I must have been hallucinating”
“But just in case.” said her father “We will question her in the morning”

The next morning her parents cornered her at breakfast.
“Where did you go last night?” Said her mother
“What do you Mean?” lied Eleanor “ I was with you the whole night putting out the fires.”
“Were you?” said her father “Because we have told you that every night once the fires are put out you come straight home and we searched all over and you weren’t anywhere”
“That’s because I was at Home…” Lied Eleanor “... In my bed”
“Very well.” said her father “Do your chores and then go play”

Once Eleanor had finished milking the cows and feeding the chickens. She changed out of the brown dress and replaced it with a tan dress and white apron. She grabbed a needle and a spool of thread, she hid the knife in her apron and quickly ran to the cave. When she got there she picked up the torch from the other night and lit it aflame. The dragon saw her and climbed down with that same limp grace from the other night.
“You’re going to have to come out of the cave if you want me to be able to stitch you” said Eleanor
The dragon just nodded and went out into daylight. When he walked out into the light Eleanor gasped. He was at least 16 metres high when he was on all fours.
“My goodness” said Eleanor
“What is it?” said Night Sky
“Your ferociously tall. I’ve never seen anything so big”
Night Sky chuckled deeply. He stood up on his hind legs, Eleanor gasped again he was at least double 16 metres now. Night Sky went down onto all fours and moved his wing so that the gashes could be fully seen. Eleanor took out her needle and thread and then started to stitch the dragon up. The dragon watched her with unmistakable curiosity.

“There you go.” said Eleanor “All stitched up. Um.. I hope you don't mind but can I see your wings?” Night Sky replied with a smile. He opened up beautifully even wings. They were about 13 metres each. Eleanor marveled at their beauty and length. She decided to play around with him, he didn’t mind at all she wanted to see how strong the wings were, he showed her by slicing a tree clean off it's stump. She wanted to see if dragons had amazing healing factors. She looked at his gashes and then noticed that the blood was drawing itself back in and the scales were growing rapidly. Eleanor touched the stitches and they popped out immediately. She touched them all and then they all popped out. The gashes grew over. “Tomorrow.” Said Night Sky “I will take you on my back and fly you across the lands that you humans haven’t inhabited.” Eleanor liked the sound of that.

The next day Eleanor woke up early to get her chores done she harvested some corn  today and gave her  mother a break. She grabbed some lunch and then went over to the cave where the dragon slept. When she got there the dragon was patiently waiting for her. He smiled when he saw her.
“Hello Eleanor” said Night Sky “Are you ready for the flight?”
“Yes” said Eleanor “Is it true that dragons can land on the clouds?”
“Yes it is. You could do it too if you wanted to”
“Really. Because I brought a picnic basket. Do you like steak?”
Night Sky chuckled “Yes it’s my favorite meat”
“Good because I packed it raw”
Night Sky lowered his wing. Eleanor hesitated before slowly walking onto it she went into the crouch position when she went onto his back and then magically he changed his skin so that it was sky blue. He got a running start and then he took off.

Eleanor dared herself to open her eyes and unbury her head from the crook of his neck. To her wonder she could see the ground from the side of Night Sky’s neck. It was beautiful, she could see a great waterfall landing into a crystal blue lake completely untouched by men. She saw free birds flying across moors covered in heather and snowdrops. She saw herds of dragons slumbering in caves dragons of all sorts. But most of all she saw the shedded scales that made the patterns in the jagged rocks spurting out of the ground.
“Can we go down there?” asked Eleanor
“You want to have a picnic down there?” said Night Sky
“No. I want to collect scales from all sorts of dragons. They look so nice on you.”
“OK. But promise me one thing, do not make any noise”
“I promise”
Night Sky flew down onto one of the jagged rocks Eleanor saw the dragons and felt a twinge of anxiety, but she swallowed it down. She looked at the ground for some scales, she found a royal red scale, then a midnight blue scale, and then a sparkly silver scale, until she found a scale that was a pure rose gold she walked over to get it. That was when everything went wrong. Eleanor didn’t notice the slippery surface on the ground until she picked up the scale and pivoted on her foot she fell backwards with a cry her hands broke her fall but the cry echoed. She put the scales in her picnic basket and then ran towards Night Sky. A few dragons woke up but Eleanor was already gone with Night Sky.

Once the flight was finished they landed on a fluffy white cloud. Eleanor lay her red checkered blanket on the ground. She threw Night Sky a hunk of raw steak. He chewed 2 times before he swallowed. Eleanor placed a meat pie on a plate. She grabbed her scales, and lay them down on the cloud.
“What kind of dragon does that one belong to” said Eleanor pointing to a snow white scale.
“Snow Dragon” Replied Night Sky
“What about that one?” a scale that changed around from Blue to orange and to gold
“Dawn dragon. They’re most strong at dawn.”
“Figures. How about this one?” The rose gold scale
“That one belongs to the queen of all dragons she is extremely strong she can live to 1,000 years and then generate her own egg to take her place, it must have shedded when she was flying across the land of dragons. If she finds out you have a scale she will have my head and yours and wreck your village so never take it out to the dragon lands”
Eleanor shivered at the image of such a beautiful creature causing so much destruction.
“Well then.” She said “Now that you’ve told me that I’m never going to let anyone see it except me and you.”
But they were already too late, because they never noticed the stealth dragon lurking in the clouds. It flew away to tell his master….. The queen.

The Page

Walt: Express creativity through the form of writing.
One sunny day a man was reading his most favorite book on his most favorite bench. The book was called Mr Tandy’s Adventures. When he got to page 37 he felt very happy, but when he went to turn the page the most unbelievable thing happened the page wouldn’t turn and yet he’d turned it all those other times before. He pulled at the page and he pulled at it some more, he put the book down on the bench placed his feet on either side on the book and pulled with all of his might but the page just would not move. He called some people over to help him move the page over, they pulled and pulled and pulled but the page just would not move. They decided to call the fire department and they attached a hook to the page but it just would not move. They called up some carvers and they brought their hammers and chisels and tried to carve the page unstuck but the page would not move then the man who owned the book started to scream and he screamed and screamed and screamed until he woke up from a dream he looked at his bedside table and there was the book he skipped to page 37 and he hesitated before turning the page to his favorite picture of a dog riding a horse and a man chasing the horse. He smiled and then fell into a deep dreamless sleep.
Task Description: For this task I made a new doc and then searched my mind for ideas and i came up with a few different ones and then this beautiful idea popped up so I started writing. i had to highlight the simple complex and compound sentences. I did the simple ones in yellow the compound in green and the complex in light blue  Then i posted it onto my blog with a high standard.

Week 6 Word Problems

What is a function?

A function is a group of group of commands used to make one command, for example tying your shoelace is a function and doing your collar is a function. Our life is full of functions. Functions are used in things like dances books and even going to the toilet. Functions are often used in programs and code all around the world. The main definition of a function is; a relation or expression involving one or more variables.

How to save money

Walt: write explanation writing with good connectives.

Lots of people like there money they like it because it gives them lots of things like food clothes, accessories, and even animals but because of this it leads us to just one of the problems with money: Once you’ve finished spending it on things you don't need you hardly have any left. Do you want to find out how to save money? Well read this to find out.

My first tip is to stop. Stop shopping for things you don't need. Yes i’m talking to you unless you desperately need it or it's the holiday season or it's someone's birthday don't buy it. Lots of people like to buy nice pretty things therefore they have too many things they don’t need and too little thing they do need. Now this tip is not for everyone and every day but if you are trying to stay within the budget do not go op shopping until payday. If you are having trouble with this one move on to paragraph 2.

My second tip is to by cheaper things. I know they may be less quality than what you normally get but this will help you keep your budget a bit more balanced. I know what some of you must be thinking: where you go shopping it must be pretty expensive, but there are solutions just go to a different shop like kmart of the vege oasis. These shops use different and less popular brands making them a lot cheaper. If this isn’t working go onto paragraph 3.

My last tip is really simple but it's actually really hard for most people. Around 84 percent of the world’s population use electricity and power everyday. But lots of power companies use very important and rare resources making power very expensive. In Scotland when up on hills you can see the windmills from afar. The power companies use an important but common resource, Air. Making the power extremely cheap. But it still costs money. So you can guess what this suggestion is use less power try to watch less tv and have shorter showers this can be really hard but look at the calendar payday might be close so it will only be for a short while.

I know that these suggestions may be a bit hard but in the end I know you can all do it. Just don’t give it up and persevere. Once you set yourself to do these things it won't be hard. Remember to : Stop buying things you don't need, Buy cheaper things, and  Use less power.

Task Description: For this task I made a new dock and put it in my writing folder. I then started writing my work. I highlighted the conectives in green so i share my knowledge about connectives and give people advice. i then posted it onto my blog with a Walt, a Task Description, Labels and a Title.

Digital Nations 2030

On Monday the 19th of February, the year 7&8 extension group went to Cordis hotel in the big city.
We went there to experience an event called, digital nations 2030. We went into the crystal room (it
wasn’t actually made out of crystals) and got introduced to a whole bunch of people from omg tech and code
avengers they had a little talk with us and then sent us off.

The first thing I did was makey makey with food. There was peaches a banana and chocolates. I have to
admit I ate one or two of the chocolates but nothing else. I then moved on to robots which was really
easy because i’d done it before. Then I moved onto the code avengers puzzle quiz thingy. I spun the
wheel and then got a chocolate.

Overall I learnt that robots are really annoying and have to have everything perfect. I learnt that you can
do makey makey with fruit and food products and I learnt that numbers in code can make letters on a

Coding Guide

Bethan’s review of commands and functions:
Commands and functions are very important things in code that lets start with commands.
Commands are the instructions we use to control anything we want on the computer, ipad,
or even your mobile phone but in our case we were using a little character called Byte. To
control Byte we had to make him follow our commands when we put in more than one we
made a sequence. A sequence is a group of commands put together to make a set of instructions.
Functions are a group of commands put together to make one command so before we we had turn
right we only had turn left so that was when we added them together three times and created turn right.

Naomi’s review on the commands and functions:
My experience on swift playground was very easy on commands.
But when we pasted commands we went to functions but I know functions are supposed to be helpful
but it was kind of tricky.The only reason why it was tricky was because we were kind of used to
commands and the function just messed up the code so we had to find a code that included the
functions and our commands.But overall it was fun and had a lot of thinking involved.

Hinerangi’s review on code commands and functions:
These types of code especially commands and functions was very hard but at the same time it was
a bit easy. The commands and functions on swift playground can be a bit hard but it is very important
that you understand it which is what myself and my teammates need to improve on. Command means
a type of instruction which tells specifically what a computer, tablet and a phone needs to do.
Overall it was awesome and fun especially having to work as a team / group, as well as having everyone
communicating in these types of code.

It wouldn't really be hard to describe how I feel about having  big family because I already have a huge family. I would mostly feel like I have plenty of people to play with and talk to when i'm bored.  But it would probably be hard getting some alone time to read a book (if my family was all living together).

Summer learning journey: Day two: Bonus blog post

Since I love all food i can't choose just one so here are my to three favourite meals

1. Lasagne. This dish is at the top of the list because I love the way the melted cheese comes off the pasta and the way the mince is perfectly cooked with the peas and carrot. I cannot get enough of the way the top layer of pasta is so crunchy.

2. Pizza. Who doesn't love pizza? This dish is delicious and super fun and easy to make My fathers pizza's are my favourite dish to make and they have such good combinations. Theres not much more to say now.

3. Butter Chicken. My favourite Indian dish would have to be creamy butter chicken. I love the orange colour it gives off and the way it just inflames my taste buds with an explosion of flavour. I love the way the the chicken is perfectly cooked.

The main reason I love these three dishes more than anything is because I have never ever ever had a bad lasagne pizza or butter chicken.

My dream job would have to be an author, because I have a pretty big imagination and I love to write. I found my love if writing in year 5 and i have wanted to become an author ever since. My stepmother Jayne thinks I could start my carrier soon and i'm hoping to do that.

Summer learning journey: Day two: Activity 1

By the look of this Wharepuni I think it would have to be very big to fit in everybody in the village. My house has got a hallway that goes down most of the house and 6 of 7 of the bedrooms in the house the toilet is outside of my room and the bathroom is at the end of the hallway. When I look at the Wharepuni I think it reminds me of a Marae and a Marae is like a Maori hall. So I think that my house doesn't look like a wharepuni.
