Leadership - Excellence post 1

On Tuesday the year 8 student leaders hosted a bake sale to fundraise for our trip to wellington later on in the year. All the year 8's brought in a plate of food to sell and Jade's mum and Mr Ladbrook decided if it was one dollar or two dollars. I helped out at the junior bake sale by selling the junior students the baking. I showed community by helping out around the school. I also showed trustworthy when dealing with money.

Probability Math

In Maths we have been learning to:

  • compare and describe the variation between theoretical and experimental distributions in situations that involve elements of chance.

  • calculate probabilities, using fractions, percentages, and ratios.

Here is a link to our online modelling book that supports this learning.

Here is some evidence of my learning.

Extended abstract text book activity

Figure it out activity 1

Figure it out activity 2

My next step is to continue to apply my knowledge of statistics and probability in a variety of real world situations and contexts.

Term 1 book review

Gone by Micheal Grant

The story is set in a small town in America. One day everyone over the age of 15 disappears and people start to develop mutant powers. The story follows a boy named Sam that everyone looks at as there leader once all the adults have disappeared. The kids that don't develop mutant powers start to call the others freaks. I think this is a great book because its interesting the whole way through.
