### My Maths Strategie's Week 9 Term 3!

1. There was a sale an Bunnings. Tom got a picnic table for ⅘  of the price. (He paid \$364) He also paid only 2/3 for a set of 2 chairs which saved him \$39. His best bargain though was getting 60% off a big table umbrella. The original price was \$580. How much money did he spend? How much money did he save?

Answer; I worked it out like this. I did 4 times what? equals 364. I first did 4 times 90 which equals 360 and so 4 was left… Then I did 4 times 1 which equals 4, so now I add 90 to 1 which makes 91 so 91 is one fifth so thats what he saved. He paid ⅔ for the chairs. He saves \$39 So the \$39 equals ⅓ so ⅔ equals 39 plus 39 equals \$78. I had to find 60% of \$580 I knew 50% was half of 580 that equals 290. So then I had to find 10% of 580 was so I did 580 divided by 10 equals 58. So he saved 232 and spent 348.

2. Tama had 4/6 of a ham and pineapple pizza left over after his party, 4/3 of a meatlovers pizza and 8/6 of a seafood pizza. How many whole pizzas and slices left over did he have after the party?

Answer; 4/6 equals 1 pizza with 2 slices left. 4/3 equals 1 pizza with 1 slice left. 8/6 equals 1 pizza with two slices left. So the answer is 3 pizza’s with 5 slice left.

3. There were 64 people waiting in the queue for an icecream. ¾  gave up and went away. How many were left?

Answer; Split 64 equals 32, then divide 32 which equals 16, 32 plus 16 equals 48. So 48 people left the queue.

4. There were 32 students at the after school programme. This was  ⅕  of the school roll. How many children go to the school?

Answer; 32 times 5 equals 160, 160 kids go to the after school programme.

5. For every 2 girls at school there are 3 boys. If there are 180 girls how many boys are there?

Answer; 180 divided by 2 equals 90, 90 times 3 equals 270. So 270 boys are there.

6. Sam is wallpapering his house. He has just wallpapered his lounge and this used up 9 rolls or ¾  of the number of rolls he has. How many rolls does he have altogether?
The hallway then takes a further ⅓  of what he had left. How many rolls will he have left for the kitchen? Do you think he will have enough. Explain your answer.

Answer; He used 9 rolls for the lounge which was ¾ because I put 3 in each quater and all together he had 12 rolls. Then he used ⅓ for the entrance because that was how many that was left and there was 1 in each third, so there was half left. So that meant he had 2 rolls left. I think that it won’t be enough for the kitchen because the kitchen is too big and there’s only 2 rolls.

### Creative Strand Movie Along With Our Reflection.

ASB from Team 5 PES on Vimeo.

We worked really hard at planning our movie and rap. Our storyboard was really good because we explained what we were going to film and draw really well. Well we got pictures from the internet which was kind of stealing so we improved by drawing it on a plain black paper with pastel.

Our message was to show that Sally Ride was the first women in space and I think we actually showed it. Our purpose was to show that Sally Ride was representing her country and she made her country proud. We conveyed really well with our message and we were really proud. I think we achieved a 2 or 3 but maybe next time we could improve and maybe achieve a 4.

Well our filming techniques were alright but it wasn't steady enough. We used different angles like close up and medium shots. The sound quality was really impressing because it really matched with our shots.

Our acting was really good because Roezala (Sally Ride) acted really serious. We showed different kinds of emotions in our movie. Maybe next time we could show more emotions and act our hearts out.

In our movie we had alot of graphics and it conveyed pretty well with our rap. Our timing was also good. The graphics were really detailed and was just the best graphics we’ve ever had in our movie. Our graphics were not traced because we drew it with our own hands.

Our movie flowed really well because our rap was fast but we worked really hard to make our film/graphics suit with our rap. The movie we made connects really well from one scene to another scene.

My group (Asena, Serenity, Britney) known as ASB worked really hard to finish our movie to a high standard. We contributed really well with our rap and also editing our movie. We worked excellently at disagreements because we would just forget about and do something we all want to do. We managed our time really well and finished 1st or 2nd. I think next time we need to add more filming next time to really improve.
