Test Practice 3

WALT -  a. Interpreting what word problems are asking me to work out.  
For this weeks activity Mrs Tele'a gave us another activity to get ready for our Gloss test. A Gloss test is a test with only you and the teacher. While I was going through the slides it felt like the questions were getting easier, so I think that the other test practice was very helpful.

Equivalent Fractions

Learning About Equivalent fractions
Today we learnt about equivalent fractions. When we first started we had to get a piece of paper and our teacher cut the piece of paper in half. Next we had to fold the piece of paper in half and in the half we had to write 1/2 in each square. Next we had to fold it again and we had to write 1/4 and we folded the piece of paper again and we wrote 1/8. I wasn't sure about what our teacher was talking about but when started I understood a bit more of what she was talking about.
Equivalent is fractions that are the same amount but different numbers, for example 3/4 is the same as saying 6/8. Hope you now understand what equivalent fraction means.

Extension Reflection

Last term for extension we had 3 choices to pick from and those choices were either to make a game that disabled people can play and also make a game show and to try and make a song but we had to make them with Makey - Makey. My group picked the game show because we wanted to entertain people with different questions and we wanted to see if they knew the answer.

In my group there was Sheena , Atareita , Danielle , Alisha. I loved the group that I was in we were focused on what we had to do and we worked together on the difficulties we had. We made our game show with the help of Scratch and we also made our buzzers with playdough.

Next we had to present our game show in front of the class. Then we grabbed two volunteers which was Talita and Simon. The seem to like our game. There where a bunch of different questions that were easy and also hard but they got through the hard and easy questions.

In our group we had different jobs to do. I had to make the buzzers and sounds and I also had to test them out when they were done. Next there was Danielle she also had to make the buzzers and she did some coding. Sheena was finding out where all the wires go to make the buzzers work. Alisha was helping Sheena with the wires. Atareita did the coding the scores and also the backdrops and also the buzzers.
