Spectacular shapes Level 2 learning

Spectacular Shapes
We are learning to identify shapes by their properties

Algebra Recap:
                     
6A = 36  A =30
6B = 48  B = 42
14 - C = 5.  C = 9
20 + D = 29. D =9
E - 6 = 15. E = 9
F x 2 + 1 = 21. F = 10
5G = 30. G =25
12H + 2 = 62. H = 58

Name the following shapes:





Name the following shapes:



Identify the following shapes based on their properties:

Name of the Shape
Properties
parallelogram
A Quadrilateral with four even sides and four vertices with 90 degree angles
octagon
A Polygon with 8 sides
Isosceles triangle
A three sided polygon with two sides that are the same length
trapezoid

A quadrilateral with one set of parallel sides
cube
A 3D shape with all sides of equal length and 6 faces
Square prism
A 3D shape with 6 faces; 2 square shaped faces and 4 rectangle shaped faces

Understanding Shapes

Walt: describe shapes by there properties.
This is a triangular prism it has:
2 Triangular faces
3 Rectangular Faces
and 9 vertices


This is a square prism it has:
2 Square faces
4 Rectangular faces
and 11 Vertices






Task Description: For this task I was given pipe cleaners to make 3D shapes so I decided to Make a Triangular prism and a Square prism. I then had to identify the faces and vertices. I put it onto my blog with a Title, Labels, Task Description, and a Walt.

What is a function?

A function is a group of group of commands used to make one command, for example tying your shoelace is a function and doing your collar is a function. Our life is full of functions. Functions are used in things like dances books and even going to the toilet. Functions are often used in programs and code all around the world. The main definition of a function is; a relation or expression involving one or more variables.

How to save money

Walt: write explanation writing with good connectives.

Lots of people like there money they like it because it gives them lots of things like food clothes, accessories, and even animals but because of this it leads us to just one of the problems with money: Once you’ve finished spending it on things you don't need you hardly have any left. Do you want to find out how to save money? Well read this to find out.

My first tip is to stop. Stop shopping for things you don't need. Yes i’m talking to you unless you desperately need it or it's the holiday season or it's someone's birthday don't buy it. Lots of people like to buy nice pretty things therefore they have too many things they don’t need and too little thing they do need. Now this tip is not for everyone and every day but if you are trying to stay within the budget do not go op shopping until payday. If you are having trouble with this one move on to paragraph 2.

My second tip is to by cheaper things. I know they may be less quality than what you normally get but this will help you keep your budget a bit more balanced. I know what some of you must be thinking: where you go shopping it must be pretty expensive, but there are solutions just go to a different shop like kmart of the vege oasis. These shops use different and less popular brands making them a lot cheaper. If this isn’t working go onto paragraph 3.

My last tip is really simple but it's actually really hard for most people. Around 84 percent of the world’s population use electricity and power everyday. But lots of power companies use very important and rare resources making power very expensive. In Scotland when up on hills you can see the windmills from afar. The power companies use an important but common resource, Air. Making the power extremely cheap. But it still costs money. So you can guess what this suggestion is use less power try to watch less tv and have shorter showers this can be really hard but look at the calendar payday might be close so it will only be for a short while.

I know that these suggestions may be a bit hard but in the end I know you can all do it. Just don’t give it up and persevere. Once you set yourself to do these things it won't be hard. Remember to : Stop buying things you don't need, Buy cheaper things, and  Use less power.

Task Description: For this task I made a new dock and put it in my writing folder. I then started writing my work. I highlighted the conectives in green so i share my knowledge about connectives and give people advice. i then posted it onto my blog with a Walt, a Task Description, Labels and a Title.

Digital Nations 2030

On Monday the 19th of February, the year 7&8 extension group went to Cordis hotel in the big city.
We went there to experience an event called, digital nations 2030. We went into the crystal room (it
wasn’t actually made out of crystals) and got introduced to a whole bunch of people from omg tech and code
avengers they had a little talk with us and then sent us off.


The first thing I did was makey makey with food. There was peaches a banana and chocolates. I have to
admit I ate one or two of the chocolates but nothing else. I then moved on to robots which was really
easy because i’d done it before. Then I moved onto the code avengers puzzle quiz thingy. I spun the
wheel and then got a chocolate.

Overall I learnt that robots are really annoying and have to have everything perfect. I learnt that you can
do makey makey with fruit and food products and I learnt that numbers in code can make letters on a
screen.

Coding Guide

Bethan’s review of commands and functions:
Commands and functions are very important things in code that lets start with commands.
Commands are the instructions we use to control anything we want on the computer, ipad,
or even your mobile phone but in our case we were using a little character called Byte. To
control Byte we had to make him follow our commands when we put in more than one we
made a sequence. A sequence is a group of commands put together to make a set of instructions.
Functions are a group of commands put together to make one command so before we we had turn
right we only had turn left so that was when we added them together three times and created turn right.


Naomi’s review on the commands and functions:
My experience on swift playground was very easy on commands.
But when we pasted commands we went to functions but I know functions are supposed to be helpful
but it was kind of tricky.The only reason why it was tricky was because we were kind of used to
commands and the function just messed up the code so we had to find a code that included the
functions and our commands.But overall it was fun and had a lot of thinking involved.


Hinerangi’s review on code commands and functions:
These types of code especially commands and functions was very hard but at the same time it was
a bit easy. The commands and functions on swift playground can be a bit hard but it is very important
that you understand it which is what myself and my teammates need to improve on. Command means
a type of instruction which tells specifically what a computer, tablet and a phone needs to do.
Overall it was awesome and fun especially having to work as a team / group, as well as having everyone
communicating in these types of code.

It wouldn't really be hard to describe how I feel about having  big family because I already have a huge family. I would mostly feel like I have plenty of people to play with and talk to when i'm bored.  But it would probably be hard getting some alone time to read a book (if my family was all living together).

Summer learning journey: Day two: Bonus blog post

Since I love all food i can't choose just one so here are my to three favourite meals

1. Lasagne. This dish is at the top of the list because I love the way the melted cheese comes off the pasta and the way the mince is perfectly cooked with the peas and carrot. I cannot get enough of the way the top layer of pasta is so crunchy.

2. Pizza. Who doesn't love pizza? This dish is delicious and super fun and easy to make My fathers pizza's are my favourite dish to make and they have such good combinations. Theres not much more to say now.

3. Butter Chicken. My favourite Indian dish would have to be creamy butter chicken. I love the orange colour it gives off and the way it just inflames my taste buds with an explosion of flavour. I love the way the the chicken is perfectly cooked.

The main reason I love these three dishes more than anything is because I have never ever ever had a bad lasagne pizza or butter chicken.

Summer learning journey: Day two: Activity 1

By the look of this Wharepuni I think it would have to be very big to fit in everybody in the village. My house has got a hallway that goes down most of the house and 6 of 7 of the bedrooms in the house the toilet is outside of my room and the bathroom is at the end of the hallway. When I look at the Wharepuni I think it reminds me of a Marae and a Marae is like a Maori hall. So I think that my house doesn't look like a wharepuni.
