Maths Mate Question #24

Predict: I predict this is going to be about division and multiplication.

Question: Fill in the missing numbers to produce correct equations in every row and column.

Clarify: Nothing

Big Question: Fill in the missing numbers.

Strategies: Break the problem up into manageable parts.

Solve: Look for the easiest question first, to break the whole problem down and then work your way up to the hardest question. Once you have done that you will have filled in the missing numbers.

Summary: The strategie really helped us in our problem solving because it broke the problem down and made it much easier to solve.

Maths building project reflection

Afrah, Erica and I built a Green team and SRC meeting place. We were facinated by how well our building came along. Our estimate of the shipping containers was 10m x 2m. Our frame of refrence estimate was 11m x 2m. The actual shipping containers were 12.25m x 2.48m. Wer built this using cardboard, paper and clay. This was a term 4 project.

  • I learnt that you have to add lots of details to buildings to make it turn out good.
  • I learnt that you have to take lots of time to make a building to make it awesome.

Now I can draw really detailed pictures and I could never do that before. I also can make 3D buildings out of cardboard.

I have gained alot of the skill to think of better ideas. I also have gained alot of the skill to work better in groups.

A wondering I’m left with is if our building is actually going to be put where the shipping containers are.
