Spinning Probability

Walt: solve probability problems.
 This game you had to find out which one matched the fraction to the spinner. I liked this game because it was quite easy because I know most of my fractions and that is what made this game easy.

Why can't I win

Walt: solve probability problems.
This game you had to find out how the sister was cheating. She was cheating because she put more more reds then blues. I found this game very cool. I would like more games like this.

Probably a favourite

Walt: solve problems in statistics.

This game I am learning to change  probability into  fractions. The first two or three questions I found easy but then it started getting challenging. But that is what I like about this game. It challenges me and makes me want to learn more about this game. I would like Mrs. Ramkolowan to give us more games like these.

The reading room

Walt: to discuss the problem and the solution in sequence.

In the story, The Reading Room there are two problems. The first problem in this story is that Lisa is in a hurry to finish reading a book that she has to read.

The resolution is when she goes into bathroom so that no-one could disturb her unless someone needed to have a shower like her sister Kathy. The leading events to the resolution are, when Lisa goes into the toilet and reads her book. The second event is that Lisa’s sister Kathy needs to go to the movies. The third event is that Lisa finishes her book.

The resolution is Lisa goes out of the toilet and sister gets into the shower.

Ruler and Cap

Walt: play probability games.

A few days ago the green group had a chance to play a game with a bottle cap and a ruler. You had to see if it was to land on the side, top or bottom. It was very fun because I played with Devonn and Britney. The first game I played was with Britney and she won. The next game I played with Devonn and I won. I would like our teacher to give us more games like this because it so much fun learning this way.

Milk in Schools

Walt share my thoughts on milk in schools.

I think it is acceptable and not acceptable to provide milk for schools.

At the moment, it’s great how the government is providing our schools with milk. Children need calcium to keep their bodies strong. And right now, our year sevens and eights need to be healthy and fit because very soon we are going sports camp, the milk gives us a bigger advantage. In just two weeks it might give us more calcium and energy and make us fit.

Then again I think the government shouldn't give the kids milk. We are not the government's responsibility. Parents should be providing their kids with food and other things. The government has already done enough for us and providing milk is just going to far.

Poverty is an issue in New Zealand and I think the government has done enough for us. Maybe its time the parents did something in return.

Probability Frog

 Walt: find probability.

In this game I am trying to find probability. You had to find what are the chances of selecting a blue butterfly. My answer was 6/10. Because there are six blue ones and the rest there are four so you add six and four then that makes ten. I didn't try the harder level because I never had time to do it, but I tried it once and it was too hard.

Cross Country Poem

Walt: write a rap/poem.

Cross Country

We all line up to get ready to run
Everybody's seems like they're not having fun.
Its nearly time for us to go now
Everybody leaves with a POW.
I set myself a good pace.
Then I start to run and race.
Huffing and puffing like the big bad wolf.

I see the children in front of me
Looking like they are running free.
I pass the marshals as I go
giving them a friendly smile.
I'm nearly there, just a few more miles.

My legs are starting to feel like jelly
And I'm starting to get a sore belly.
I see the finish line it's right there
But I'm standing all the way over here.
“Come on Crystal pull yourself together”
At the moment I'm feeling light as a feather.

I know I didn't come first
But I don’t care I cheer with a burst!
