Statistical Investigation

LI: To read the text, gather sort, graph and analyse the data

Our maths group created a diagram which shows the top six rivers in Auckland from smallest to largest. We used our collaborative skills to find out the data of each river. We put these rivers in this order from shortest to longest. We used our knowledge to come to the conclusion on what river is the longest out of the 6 rivers in Auckland, which is the Wairoa River being the longest at 65km.

I found this activity helpful because it helps me learn how to sort and order out the informations.

Basic Facts Challenge

LI: To recall basic facts at speed


Today we began our basic facts challenge. The purpose of this challenge is to increase the speed we can recall these facts as this knowledge will help us when we are working with larger numbers. My time today was 3 minutes and 50 seconds. My goal for next time is to complete Multiplication on random. To achieve this I will need to practise my Multiplications while I’m at home.


I learnt how to measure temperatures.

First, we filled up the sink with hot water, the temperature was 42 celsius and then we put the ice pack in the water to see how the temperature cooldown.

Next, we had to wait for every 5 minutes and then every two person in the group has to go and read the thermomter.

Last, when it has been over 45 minutes, the tempurature was still 26 celsius. I think that it went flat because it the water got warmer but the actual reason is that the ice pack finished melting so it couldn’t cooldown.

I enjoyed this activity because I learnt how to measure temperatures. I did well on reading the thermomter. I need to improve on knowing the reason why the thermomter stopped at 26 celsius.

How to Make a Marble Maze

Follow these instruction if you wanna know how to make a marble maze.


  • Your A4 Maze
  • Hard Board
  • Pen/Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Straws
  • Glue


  1. Create your maze on a google slide (It has to be  21 x 29.7 centimetres)
  2. Print your maze.
  3. Glue your maze on a A4 hard board
  4. Cut the straws as the same size as the lines that is on your maze.
  5. Glue your straw on the lines
  6. If your finish, get your marble and play with it


Time can be measured in seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, decades and centuries.

There are 6 parts of a clock, they are: Hour Hand, Minute Hand, Hour Division, Minute Division, Past Side and To Side. The hour hand is the short hand and the minute hand is the long hand. The minute division is the small dots and the hour division is the big numbers. The Past side is the right side and the To side is the left side.

Time is showing the progress of the world from the past to the present and the future.

Time and Distance

Time is how long we can be organised. Distance is the amount of length.

Time units can be measured in seconds, minutes, hours, days, month, and years. Distance units can be measured in milimetres, centimetres, metres and kilometres.

Times and Distance helps us see how fast we can run.


I completed a can-do task called Solvemoji.

I had to find out how much the emoji’s are worth and finding out the answer. For an example: Drums x Drums = 100 so its 10 x 10 because it equals to 100.

I enjoyed this activity because I learnt on finding out the answer by seeing how much the emoji’s are worth. I did well on answering the puzzle.


I learnt about statistics.

First, we needed to answer the 4 questions. The questions were: “What is your favourite colour”, “What month you are born in”, “How many people live in your house”, and “Can you ride a bike?”

Next, we drew a tally and put all the information about all the 4 questions. For an example: What is your favourite colour? 5 people like blue, 6 people like green, 2 people like red, 2 people like purple, 1 person likes black and 2 people like brown.

I enjoyed this activity because I learnt how to use tally and graphs. I did well on drawing the tally and put all the information in. I need to improve on drawing the graphs.

Adding Fractions

I learnt how to add fractions.

First, I had to learn how to add fractions. For an example: We need to solve 4/7 + 2/7. We only have to change the numerator, we had to add 4 + 2 together and the denominators stays the same. So the answer is 6/7.

Next, I had to answer all of questions that is on the Google Doc.

I enjoyed this activity because I learnt how to add fractions. I did well on adding fractions. I need to improve on explaining what is fractions.


Pencil Code

I learnt how to code.

First, I had to make a Small Square, Large Square, Triangle and a Rectangle. Then I had to take a screenshot and put the code in. For an example: The code for the triangle is – Speed 10, Pen Purple, Lt 35, Fd 100, Lt 110, Fd 100, Lt 125, Fd 115.

Last, I did the challenge. The challenges I had to make were: a Hexagon, an Octagon and a Pentagon.

I enjoyed this activity because I learnt how to code. I did well on making all the shapes.
