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.





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.

Merit HLC E6

For my merit badge I did Home Learning Challenge E6 which was Research a career and present your findings.. As you can see, I used a digital presentation for the challenge and I decided to use a comic book theme for the presentation. It took me some time and I used some careers sites to help decide which career to research

Teaching Kākano Students Games

Today All the year 8 & some year 7's taught the Year 0 & 1 simple games that they could play at break. Me and Joseph T  taught our group how to play Giant's Treasure which was a Sneak up on granny & grandma's keys-esque game. It was a fun game that some of the juniors enjoyed.

WALT: Reason with linear proportions

WALT: Combine simple proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up in a unit
We learnt how to calculate percentage increase and decrease. If you want to calculate percentage increase, you have to find the percentage difference between the two numbers you are comparing and divide the difference by the original number and then times it by 100 and convert that decimal into a percentage. For example: What is the percent of decrease of 16 to 14? The way you would solve this is find the difference between the original number and the new one. 16 - 14 = 2. Divide 2 by 16 which equals 0.125. Multiply that by 100 and it equals 12.5%, So its a 12.5% decrease.
WALT: Combine proportions to work out what parts are whole is made up of using non multiples of 10.

We learnt how to calculate how much the percentage increased or decreased in number. The way I did this was I found the percentage and if it was an increase: added it onto the 100, and if it was a decrease: subtracted it from 100. …
