My Trip to Samoa!!

On August the 5th me and my mum: Lautifa, went to Samoa for a family funeral. 
I was really excited to see my family again but at the same time 
I was really sad that my Great Grandpa passed away. 

When I stepped at outside the Virgin Australia aircraft I instlanty knew that the 
air in Samoa was going to be really hot. I looked at the building in front of me that 
was called Faleolo International Airport which was one of the most busiest building 
in all of Samoa. Once all of the passengers arrived in the building to check in we 
were greeted by the sound of traditional Samoan music played by 4 men. 
As passengers walked passed them they threw $20 or $10 in front of them like donation, 
once we passed Security, bag pick up and passport check we arrived 
outside to where we were greeted by the happy faces of my family.

After a round of hugs and kisses we scrambled in our family van which sped through
the night as I admired the fale's (houses) pass by, and at that same time
I was really happy to be back in my home country. On Sunday morning we all got ready to 
go to Savaii we the other half of my family lived, when we arrived at the Wharf we got our tickets
and waited for Lady Samoa II Ship to arrive. The boat arrived in 10 miuntes and everybody
boarded the ship which glided smoothly across the ocean, after 15 miuntes of looking outside 
the window I fell into a deep sleep. When we arrived in Savaii and got off the boat we sped off
to our house in Vaisaulu, once we arrived we saw that no one was at home because they
Image result for Samoan airportwere all off at Church, so we waited and waited.

When my family arrived they all got changed and had dinner togther and talked about how if everthing was okay. When we had to leave Samoa was really sad that I had to leave my family back again and come back, but before we went through the gates and grandma told me,"Even if don't live in Samoa, always remember that Samoa is your home and you are a true Samoan girl" I hugged her tight and said Goodbye, but now I will always know where I came from I will always be a true island girl!!

Note: Here is a Samoan song that I love and will always remind me that Samoa is my Home. SONG and the English and Samoan version, SONG 2

WALT: Investigate situations that invole chance and identifying possible outcomes
This is my activity for week 9/10, this presentation was all about Probability about things that can happen unlikely, likely or certain. My favourtie slide would probley be slide 7 because it was really fun thinking about things that would happen to me.

Game Reflection

In extension this term our focus is on coding, so a few weeks ago me and my partner: Alisha have started our game for scratch where we had to make a space game. The worst problem that we had was broadcasting and making sure we had the right coding.
On the first level me and my partner: Alisha, we each did a job to finish the level, so I did the backgrounds and half of the coding while Alisha did the other half  and did the drawings of the sprites.
Problem: The problem that we had throughout the game was broadcasting because me and my partner still had problem increasing our knowledge for broadcasting.
Solution: Zoe from OMG Tech taught us there was an easier way to broadcast on scratch and she also helped us to learn more about broadcasting.

My favourite part about coding this Term for Extension was that I really got to bond with my partner and that I increased my knowledge for coding more than last term.

Space Readings

A few weeks ago the Extension group visited a website and each person read an articale and the articale that I read was How have Advances in space technology helped us on Earth

Here what I found out:
1.In the story How have Advances in Space Technology helped us on earth I have learned that the two GOES Satellites that are operating on the west and east side of the United states of America and can let us track and warn people in vulnerable places when or where a hurricane will hit.
2.I have also learned that Satellites can operate how we can see and locate oceans, deserts, Cities but some people on earth have GPS and can locate the places much easier.
3.And one thing that I have learned is that Satellites have shown that the ozone on the earth are disappearing over some parts of the Earth and are trying to find a way to use less damaging chemicals to our atmosphere.
4. The last thing that I have learned from this story is that Two other satellites: TOPEX/Poseidon and Jason 1 have been studying the oceans, and they help us understand the complex movement of ocean water.

Education Speech

Image result for educationWhy is Education so important in our lives?. Education plays a very important role in our lives and for everybody that goes through life. Getting a proper education is very important, it helps us to have a successful and good life. It support’s the feeling of physical,mental, and social well being for a better life.

Making a school Garden

Today my group the Iphones were busy trying to find out what project we should do for our Inquiry:Now That’s Thinking. My group was torn between the choices of making a cafeteria or making a flower garden. When we finally made our decision we decided that it would be easy to make a flower garden to help the appearance of the school when visitors come past, or when people walk past they can see what we have been working on.

For the past few weeks the Iphones have been planning and making design's about what the garden will look like when it is finished. The iphones are hoping that we can finish it before the term finish's.

Mean, Median,Mode

WALT: I will identify patterns and trends in context, within and between data sets; communicating findings, using data displays. Find the mean, median, mode and the range which is part of analysing data.
Statistics                                                           name:Sheena

WALT- Identify the mean, median and mode within a collection of data

Activity One
Answer the questions in a different colour

The definition of the mean in a statistical investigation is commonly referred to as the average. It is the total of all the data divided by the amount of data shown.
For example: if we have this range of data 3,5,7,1,2,3,6,8

3+5+7+1+2+3+6+5  = 32  = 4
             8                      8

  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
3,7,8,4,2,6,5,4,3,9= 51 divided by 10=5.1
  1. Find the mean in the set of numbers
4,12,5,6,11,9,5=52 divided by 7=7.4
  1. Find the mean in this tally chart: 10,12,4,2=28 divided by 7=4
Pets owned by students
Number of students

  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
24,12,16,18=70 divided by 4=17.5
  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
5,9,12,4,10,7=47 divided by 6= 7.8
  1. CHALLENGE QUESTION: Find the mean within this data, use the frequency table to help you


Activity Two
Answer the questions in a different colour

The definition of the median is the middle number within a set of numbers that have been put in order from size (biggest to smallest or smallest to biggest)
For example: 2,6,4,1,9 = 1,2,4,6,9 and the middle number is 4.
BUT say if there is more than one middle number… the median is found by taking the number midway between the middle pair of numbers:
3,6,1,4,9,2 = 1,2,3,4,6,9 → 3 + 4 = 3.5

Find the median in these sets of numbers

  1. 10,14,17,12,19,11,16, 14 is the middle number
  2. 34,42,37,31,40: 37 is the middle number

  1. 101, 167,138,124,198,149,  143 is the middle number

  1. 54, 58,52,57,53,60, the middle number is 55.5

  1. 1001, 1094, 1023, 1065, 1038, 1027, 1042: the middle number is 1038

  1. Find the median within this tally chart

Pets owned by students
Number of students

The middle number from the tally chart from above is: 7

Activity Three
The mode is the most frequent number in a set of data. The number that occurs most often.
For example: In a set of numbers 3, 7, 8, 4, 2, 6, 5, 4, 3, 9 there is two modes, 3 and 4 because they appear twice in the data set.
Note- There can either be 0, 1 or 2 modes. If there are 3 or more numbers occur the same number of times, there is no mode.

Find the mode in these sets of numbers
  1. 2, 1, 5, 3, 7, 8, 5, 3 ,9 the most common numbers are 5 and 3
  2. 1, 5, 3, 2, 9 ,4, 1, 6, 8, 0, the most common number is 1
  3. 23, 45, 78, 12, 45, 67, 32, 46, 93, 12, the most common numbers are 45 and 12
  4. 101, 121, 123, 145, 167, 121, 139, 145, 176, the most common numbers are 121 and 145
  5. 394, 273, 219, 294, 183, 291, 273, 288, 271, the most common number is 273

Find the Range in these number:
  1. 32,41,37,34,40: 41-32=9
  2. 100,92,96,94,98: 100-92=8
  3. 72,79,76,74,69,80: 80-69=11
  4. 54,57,52,55,58: 58-52=6
112,125,115,111,120: 125-111=14
