Types of News

In this graph here we have types of news. The types of news in this graph is Good, Bad, Mixed and Neutral. Mrs Ramkolowan gave us a sheet that we had to mark. It was either G (good), B (bad), M (mixed) and N (neutral). The most marked that Tainah and I did was Bad, Mixed and Neutral. The thing that I liked in this topic was choosing what graph I wanted. It was pretty hard typing in the Y title and the X title. So I asked Alisi if she can help, and she did.

Why can't I Win!

Walt: solve problems in statistics.

This game was very very easy. The point of this game was to choose a word that describes the text. As you can see these are the words that I chose. Some of it was a little hard, because I didn’t get it. I would really like Mrs Ramkolowan to give me more work on this kind of topic.

Probably a Favourite

Walt: solve problems in statistics.

In this game it was really easy. All you needed to do was to try and the same fraction. Once you have finished it will show you a drawing. Click on any tile and a fraction will appear. Try and remember where the fractions are. The challenging part of this for me was to remember the  places where the fractions were. I would really like Mrs Ramkolowan to give me more work on two way steam and leaf graphs. So I can get the hang of setting it out.

Walt: study skin infections.


Impetigo is a highly spreaded skin infection that spreads in schools. Impetigo is also called ‘school sores’. They call is school sores because it is common in schools and it spreads fast and quick. People that are most infected with impetigo are school children. Impetigo is mostly attracted to children not adults. It is caused by bacteria. The bacteria lives on the skin, in the throat and the nose. It can also occur when the skin is kept clean. Impetigo can also occur on healthy skin but it often happens when the skin is damaged or it has been scratched. To identify impetigo there will be reddish blisters that will burst and will leave large, red blotchy areas. You can also recognize it if you have blisters that are filling with pus and fluids.

Things I would if there was no T.V or Computers

The Terrible Techno Turn - Off

The author’s purpose is that if you have given a challenge you always need to finish it.

If I had to choose three things instead of watching TV or playing on the computer. It would be drawing or having a drawing competitions wit my brothers and sister. I would look after my nephew and hold. The last thing I would choose is to annoy my sister or to chew on bubblegum.

Internet Graphs

Walt: use percentages, fractions and decimals for probability .  

In this game all you have to do is to try and calculate the x’s. This game was pretty hard for me to play, because confusing and complex. It was hard for me because I didn’t get the language in this game. I started to get this game after a few questions. The next thing I would like to learn from Mrs Ramkolowan in my group is to try and make graphs on my netbook and to use the customize buttons.

Tony Williams

Walt: write a report on Tony Williams.

Tony Williams is an author, poet, comedian, director and a film maker. He is an author of 37 published books. Tony is highly entertaining educator and speaker. Tony visited over 500 schools in New Zealand. He is very eager to visit many more schools and to show students the English Haka. Tony writes books about mysteries.

Questions for Tony Williams

  • Why have you chosen to become an author?

  • Explain how you became an author?

  • What age were you when you become an author and why?

  • What inspired you to become an author?

  • Do you have any advice for younger authors?

  • Give us the name of your child’s favourite author?

  • Which one is the most difficult being a comedian or a film maker?

  • What university did you go to?

Spinning Game

Walt: estimate the probability of simple events using frequency tables.

In this game that the Orange group played I think it was unfair most of the times. I think it was unfair because the colour green had more parts on the wheel instead of the colour red. No, I think that because this game is unfair. Kelvin was the lucky one in the group. Kelvin was lucky because when he guested the number 7 he spun 7 reds out of 20 spins. The fraction of my wheel for the colour red was 9/20. The fraction for the colour green was 11/20. Another way to write ½ would be 0.5 and 50%. When Tainah and I changed the wheel into 5 parts the results were 22 reds and 8 greens in 30 spins. My guesses are not correct because the number of spins I chose were 12 for reds, but I ended up with the number 9.

Bright Ballons

Walt: Make predictions based on data collected. Identify all possible outcomes of an event. Assign probabilities to simple events using fractions.

I this game all you have to do is to try and find which type of balloons are most or least. Click on one of the balloons that the colours are in. When you have finished the game at the end you can colour in your own bright balloons.

The Reading Room

Walt: discuss the problems and the solution in sequence.

In the story, The Reading Room there are two problems.

The first problem is Lisa sneaking into the bathroom to finish her book about Mark being lost in the sandstorm. But she can’t finish her book because her sister Kathy is wanting to have a shower. So she can go to the movies.

The last problem is that Kathy is wanting to have a shower so she can wash her hair. Kathy can’t have a shower because Lisa is reading her book in a quiet place where no one can disturb her.

Cross Country

Walt: write a poem/rap.

Cross Country

As we cross the road
The street was overflowed
“Not allowed on the grass”
That was given to the class

Jogging starting to be boring
As I hear the kids roaring
As the path turns narrow
Flying across was a sparrow

Now everyone is tired
The teachers weren't inspired
Everybody is walking it
Now they unfit

Going at a slow pace
No one came 1st place
People going lazy
Then children all go crazy

Children moaning and moaning
It’s started to get a bit annoying
Everyone breathing for fresh air
No one was allowed to swear

No one wanted to catch the bell
Otherwise they would live in hell
People crying as they run
Running to get out of the sun

1st, 2nd, 3rd people are rushing
No one went blushing
We need that trophy
Said ‘Sophie’
