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. It helps a person to improve his/her’s critical thinking at school or anywhere on the planet. It provides us lots of confidence by increasing our knowledge each day, and the more knowledge we get, we grow and develop more in life. So my question for you is do you want your education to be successful and free?

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

  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
1,5,5,2,1,2,5,5,5,5,1,2,1,5,5=3.3

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
                                             2

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

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

W.A.L.T: To read different types of Graph
Today I have finished my Maths activity for week 6. On this presentation it teach's me about Reading Graphs like: Pie Graphs, Bar graph and more other graphs.

Marking my test helps me to improve my learning

Today in Mrs Tele'a's Maths class my group Tapaono marked our IKAN test. This time round when I did the the test it was more relaxing then last time where we had to look up at the T.V screen and try and keep up.   This time we used our chromebooks and earphones and we could do it twice to double check if we had the right answer.


The next day after we did the test we had to sit in our small group and mark our results with the teacher. I am kinda proud of my results because in some parts I made some silly mistakes and it was really challenging and now I know that next time when I do a IKAN test I have to improve myself more on fractions and place value.

I'm glad I got to see my results and even mark my work because it helps me to know exactly what I need to work on.
