Walt : use a wide range of advanced punctuation correctly


Learning Reflection

I was able to identify where the quotation marks were supposed to go and if they were being put in the right place e.g when the person is speaking AKA before and after. I also was able to identify if the right punctuation was put before the end of the quotation marks.

Next time I need to identify when someone is talking and when someone is reporting something.

Maths Problems



Walt : use a variety of multiplacation strategies to solve multiplacation problems

Learning Reflection

To do this I needed to expand numbers, understand my basic facts,use soldiers, ad 2 and 3 digit numbers and use brackets to solve problems. I also was able to identify what numbers I needed to double and what numbers I needed to halve.


Next time I can do better by making harder problems to do rounding and compensating, Place Value and Doubling and Halving. I can also use my brackets so people can understand my work better.

I was able to use detail to change my irrelevant ideas to make relevant ideas.

Statistics



Walt : display data on histogram, tally chart
Walt : interpret information from histograms and tally marks eg. medium, mode, range, mean

We got this information from the scramble scores in our welcome post.

I was able to do the mode easily the mode was the easiest. For me the mean was the hardest. I think I need to improve on mean and medium.

  • The mode for the first name scores was 8.
  • The mode for the last name were 11
  • The mode for the full name scores was 22
  • The Range for the first name scores 4-20
  • The Range for the last name scores 2-21
  • The Range for the full name scores was 9-31


The mode is the most common number the most popular. The mean is another word for average. The median is is when you put the numbers in order from least to greatest and circle the number or numbers in the middle

The Smart frog video helped a lot. At first I did not know what mean median and mode where before this.

Next time would like to do this again but collecting different Data.

10 Things About Me


Walt : use advanced punctuation

We have learning how to use bullet points correctly in my 10 Things About Me slideshow.  I learnt you need to :
  • Place the bullet point in the margin.
  • Use a capital letter after the bullet point.
  • If you have written a sentence, end it with a punctuation eg. fullstop.
  • Bullet points are used to create lists.
  • Find the bullet points icon on the right hand side at top of the tool bar called bullet lists.
  • You have to be in a text box to find the bullet points 
Next time I will try and use bullet points in more of writing.

Can you guess which of my information is true and which is a lie ?
