ANZAC Explanation

ANZAC Explanation



Introduction


 World War One started in 1914 and ended in 1918. Millions of people died in that war. ANZAC day is a special day where Australians and New Zealanders remember the Kiwi and Australian men and women that died in those wars. Every year since 1915 we have been remembering them. 

 Why is ANZAC day remembered?

 ANZAC day is a public and special day when New Zealanders and Australians commemorate those that died in the war. ANZAC day stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corps which was created by a post office clerk. Half of the men from New Zealand went to war which affected families all over NZ. First the army went to Apia to get more soldiers, then they went to Cairo for training. Overall 2431 soldiers and 500 nurses died and 7571 got injured from NZ in World War One. 

 How is ANZAC day remembered? 


 Every April 25th ANZAC day is remembered in NZ with special ANZAC day memorials and Dawn parades which are held in most NZ towns. Poppies are worn on ANZAC day to represent the bloodshed at Gallipoli. Poppies and Wreaths are also laid in memorials and dawn parades. Guns and cannons are also used to simulate what happened at Gallipoli. Some schools are given crosses with names of people that died from that town. Most memorials also hold a minute of silence to respect and remember those that died. 

Conclusion


 So overall ANZAC is an important and special day where we remember soldiers and lay poppies. The most interesting fact that I learn’t was that lots of animals were used in the war to help soldiers. eg. Donkeys used for carrying injured soldiers.

My Favourite Book Of Term 1

A Game Of Thrones - By George R. R. Martin
The story is set in the medieval ages in the fictional continents Westeros and Essos, and told through multiple perspectives in each chapter. 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…

Form And Solve Linear And Quadratic Equations | Extended Abstract Task

Painting Triplets "Pania, Henare and Matiu are triplets. Henare can paint a room in 3 hours, Pania can do it in 4 hours, Matiu can do it himself in 6 hours, If they all do it work together but don't get in each other's way, how long will it take to paint the room?"
1hr and 20 mins. The reason why is all of them paints a fraction of the room. p + h + m = 1. Since Matiu can do it in 6 hours, that means Henare can do it in half the time. That means that m/2 = h as it means Henare can do a whole room in half the time Matiu takes. So if Pania takes 4 hours, that means she will always be painting 3/4 of the room, because Henare takes 3 hours to paint the whole room. Henare paints h of the room, Pania paints 3h/4. So Pania is 3h/4. 3h/4 = P. Our whole equation is h + 3h/4 + h/2 = 1 or 9/4h = 1 or h. Which I'm pretty sure equals 4/9. Henare takes 3 hours to do the room on his own. This means that he takes 4/9 of 3 hours with his siblings. Painting the room takes 4/3 of …

Statistics Reflective Blogposts

In Maths we have been learning to:

Evaluate statistical investigations or probability activities undertaken by others including data collection methods, choice of methods and validity of findings.

Here is a link to our online modelling book that supports this learning.

Here is some evidence of my learning. Include screenshots for both of the IXL activities. Link to Future options activity and answer sheet. Link to Social Media For TeensKeep Away From Horses activities and answer sheet. (make this link live with your learning)




A part of this learning that I found challenging was the extended abstract task Keep Away from The Horses as it involved very thorough scanning of the text and comparing the data and quoted statistics with the raw data provided at the bottom of the pdf and some of the questions were very confusing to follow like question 3.

My next step is to continue to apply this knowledge of statistics and probability in a variety of real world situations and contexts.
