Convert between metric units using decimals

In Maths we have been learning………..
Convert between metric units using decimals. Converting is part of our Number Knowledge. It is important to just know these as we can use this knowledge when we are solving measurement problems.
Here is a link to our online modelling book.
Here are the IXL screenshots that show evidence of my learning.  

SKI JUMP  - This is the activity that shows my ability to apply the knowledge I have learned.
Here is link to my Ski Jump problem solving activity answer sheet. (link your answer sheet here)
My next  step in Maths is…… to use this new knowledge to help me solve a wide variety of measurement problems

Reading - Text Compostion

In reading we have been learning to…. recognize the way words, sentences and paragraphs are put together (eg sentences that express cause and effect) and use this knowledge to understand complicated texts.

Here is a link to our online modelling book

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit: (link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)

Defining parts of speech Types of sentences Analyzing paragraph construction Explain the relationship between components of texts. Complex text analysis

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge of parts of texts, to help me make sense of increasingly complicated text types.

Excellence Student Leader 2

City Council Trip
On Monday the 29th of May, the student leaders went on a bus to the CBD, where we went to visit the City Council Building to learn more about them and leadership. When we got there we took a little walk around the CBD, to make our way towards the Council Building. When we got there we got to have alittle break to take pictures while a member of the council staff got organized and ready to teach us. Once we got into a little classroom in the council building, we looked at a presentation about what the council does, eg; Taking out the trash, giving us fresh drinking water, doing building inspections, etc... and how the council is run. The council teams are split into different groups, most of them had just under 300 people working for them, while some of them had as little as 18. After that they had 6 council workers to take us to where they work and explain to us what they do and have us report back. My group had the Resource Consent workers who basically had to find…

Relate tables, graphs, and equations to linear and simple quadratic relationships found in number and spatial patterns.

WALT: relate tables, graphs, and equations to linear and simple quadratic relationships found in number and spatial patterns.

Assessment Task: A car rental business has two rental schemes, red and blue for rentals up to ten days. These schemes are advertised in their brochures with this graph. Use the following information to work out how many days of rental would carry the same total cost on either the blue or the red scheme (show your working). The area under the graph gives the total cost of renting. The schemes each follow a linear pattern, cutting the vertical axis at 120 and 170. Both blue and red schemes cost $110 on the 4th day of rental.

One of the perspectives is of the Stark family who are the main family of House Stark, located in the fort Winterfell, the lord Ed Stark is called to be the Kings Hand as the previous one had been slain, which is basically the bodyguard of the king. A member of the Stark family, Jon Snow is taken to a place called the wall, which is a big wall made of ice where they keep all the people that commit minor crimes. The wall is the only place that separates them from the north, where it is infested with dangerous undead beings called white walkers. In Essos which is the continent split from Westeros by the Narrow Sea, a woman called Daenerys, part of House Targaryen, is sold off to a leader of the Dothraki, called Khal Drogo by her brother Viserys in-exchange for some men for his army. The story snowballs f…
