Word problems W4

WALT:  Reviewing our knowledge of fractions using word problems.   Can I interpret what the question is asking me?
On this presentation my group Tapaono had to solve these word problems for week 4, and once we finished the presentation we had to find a buddy to work with, pick one word problem and record how we got our answer. At the end of this presentation we learned how to use a new recording site and how to figure out how to solve word problems faster.

Word Problems W5

WALT:  Explore the use of 'Screencastify' to explain how I problem solve.  Clearly display my working using this process.
Today I have finished my Word problems for week 5. My group Tapaono had to do this presentation about word problems where we had to solve problems on each slide. One thing that my group Tapaono has learned from doing this activity was finding out what operation to use (+,-,x,/)

Maths Activity W3

Today my group Tapaono had to use a recording add called Screencastify where we had to buddyup and pick one problem from the presentation and share how we got our answer.

The person that I buddied up for this occuasion was Inez from my group and we worked on problem 3. Problem 3 talked about how tall was Mr Murrin and his brother tom, and we had to find out how tall was Tom. See the video above to see how me and Inez got our answer.

How to use Screencastify:
Screencastify is an app on our netbook that records anything like word problems and much more. Screencastify is coloured black and has white holes and should be on the right side of your chromebooks, and now Screencastify is now used many ways in Team 5.

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

Today I have finished my Cyber-smart activity for this week. On this activity our class had to pick a kiwi athlete and explore their profiles and write what ever we learned about them on slide 3, and on the very last slide we had to create our own future profile of what I want to accomplish in 10 or 20 years time.
