Merit HLC A9

For my merit badge, I did the home learning challenge A9, which was to make a song using garage band. Since I use Windows I didn't have GarageBand so I used the Windows equivalent which was basically the exact same. Basically what I did was download some audio tracks from some websites online and put some of the audio tracks together to create the song verses. This took me about 3 hours to do and it was pretty challenging as I didn't have a vision of what it would sound like when I started, I think it sounds great.

Probability Reflective Blogpost

In Maths we have been learning to:

compare and describe the variation between theoretical and experimental distributions in situations that involve elements of chance.

calculate probabilities, using fractions, percentages, and ratios.

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

Here is some evidence of my learning. Include screenshots for all 4 of the IXL activities. Link to extended abstract text book activity ( make this link live with your learning) or include some images if you did this work in your Maths book.

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

Leadership Article Blogpost

In writing I have been learning to use a wide range of punctuation appropriately and with increasing accuracy like . , ! ? “”
- colon :
- semi-colon ;
- hyphen -
- parentheses ( )
- brackets [ ]
- ellipses ...

I have been especially focussing on using parentheses and semi-colon. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.

28/02/17 Key things about being an effective Deputy Head Boy

What is leadership? Well, leadership is the skill of being able to motivate an individual or a group of people towards a goal. There are six leadership traits that we came up with, which are Goal Focused, Motivational, Integrity, Resilient, Active Thinking, Trustworthy. These traits are essential to being an amazing leader, (which that is important for my role as the Deputy Head Boy for 2017). This means that I have to attend the weekly leadership meetings, contribute to the …

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 …
