Assessment task: Use simple fractions and percentages to describe probabilities

Assessment task: Use simple fractions and percentages to describe probabilities


Question 1:


Show your working and answer here:


There are 6 toppings altogether, 2 get chosen, there are 30  different ways they could be chosen:


1,2    1,3   1,4   1,5   1,6
2,1    2,3   2,4   2,5   2,6
3,1    3,2   3,4   3,5   3,6                     The answer is: 2/30
4,1    4,2   4,3   4,5   4,6
5,1    5,2   5,3   5,4   5,6
6,1    6,2   6,3   6,4   6,5

Question 2:


Show your working and answers here:


2a:  Twins = 2   ,   2 types of gum balls  ,   50c each  ,  They might get thesame colour on the first try which would only mean: $1.00  But she might keep putting her oney in until she either runs out of she has taken out all of one colour and there’s only one colour left.  It’s 50/50 really. (½)

2b: The most she might have to spend depends on how many gumballs are in there...

2c: from $1.00 - how many are in there.

Question 3:


Show your working and answer here:


I’m not sure what you mean like this… whether i have to somehow draw out what the tiles would look like on the floor or, how many different ways they could be put down after they’ve been broken :/

What is you next step?


Plan and conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
- determining appropriate variables and data collection methods
- gathering, sorting, and displaying multivariate category, measurement, and time-series data to detect patterns, variations, relationships, and trends
- comparing distributions visually
- communicating findings, using appropriate displays.  



Finally, add the screenshots from the 3 IXL activities you did here:

Make a code language 3/4/2017

E10. Design your own challenge:

I did this challenge with my friend Alex, previously we had done an activity in class time with others; about making your own secret language. I had an idea that we could make a code language ourselves and turn it into a home learning challenge, so... here we go!

Unfortunately I cannot write it out on here because they are funny designs that obviously don't show up on the keyboard so if you want to see the live thing just ask me. :)

The way we designed them for each letter we would muddle up what it was made out of... eg;
A = | | -

It is not "A = 11", we took apart what it was made out of (two long lines on the outside and one shorter line forming the inside of the A) we thought this was quite a smart way of doing it so that's what we stuck with... Some of them aren't this way though, some we could not make out a good enough character for the letter so we just had to make them up. :/

Overall this home learning challenge was super fun and I really enjoyed making it! :D

             The great pyramid of Giza        3/4/17

Some Facts:
  • It is the oldest wonder of the world.
  • There are 3 pyramids together, it is the biggest out of those.
  • It is also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops.
  • It is 146.5 meters (481 feet) tall and WAS the tallest man made structure till about 3,800 years ago.
  • Most people’s hypotheses are based on the idea that it was built by moving huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into place.        
  • There are 3 areas inside the pyramid: The lowest chamber; which is near the bottom, the queen and the king’s chamber’s which are situated near the top.
  • It was built around 2580–2560 BC.

A picture of it:

Find factors of numbers to 100 and common multiples of numbers to 10

WALT: Find factors of numbers to 100 and common multiples of numbers to 10


Here is my Assessment Task doc: Find factors of numbers to 100 and common multiples of numbers to 10

Investigate situations that involve elements of chance by comparing experimental distributions with expectations from models of the possible outcomes, acknowledging variation and independence.

Today we got called to a meeting to discuss how everything was going. Hearing everyone else's thoughts, most of them were good, but a few about the house captains doing the flags. I don't think that's actually a problem though, people just are forgetting to do their job or some people are doing the job with their friends and not letting others do it. Some people are doing that to me. Anyway other than that everything is going well, a few comments like: The bin idea is going well, when we host assemblies it looks good, all juniors are liking the bin challenge etc... I'm happy people like it! Care values I showed at the meeting were: Community, Respect and Excellence.

Every day after school Cormac, Emily, Natasha and I take in the flags the people in the morning put out. At around 2:45 pm we go to through the hall and into the radio station room (because that's where we put them) and unlock the doors so we can take them in without scratching the sides against the walls. We each go out and get a flag and come back in to put them down (those flags are: The Community flag, the Active Thinking flag, the Respect flag, and the Excellence flag). There are always two left after that because there are six in total so two start locking up the place while two get the last two flags that are still out (which are the 'Oaklands School' flags; situated usually in the parking lot).

After a job well done we go back to finish the last few minutes of school in class.

The care values I showed today were: Community, Active Thinking, Respect and Excellence.
