This Year: Basic Facts Test Results

Term 1 Week 7


A cryptarithm is a type of mathematical puzzle in which most if not all digits in a mathematical expression, such as a sum, are substituted by letters or other symbols.

In a typical puzzle, there is a one-to-one correspondence between the numbers and letters or symbols replacing them.

I enjoy the easy and medium ones. 
For example, 5 + 5 + 5 = 15,  based on a + a + a = ba and 9aa + aa + aa = bac.

Writing Explanation - Raptors

I was learning to write an explanation to explain about the book Birds of Prey, a book about raptors. I found using technical words easy to do but I found the conclusion tricky because I wasn't sure how to do the conclusion. I found putting it in order a little easy. Extraneous facts weren't necessary for my explanation. Next try I will try not to add extraneous things.
If I didn't like this subject it would be a bit harder to do.

Making Connections The Dream Guitar

I find it difficult to write this reflection because it is too complex for me.  I find it difficult to think about what is happening to them and what is happening to me at one time.

Peer Mediator Video

I was learning to solve a problem a peer mediator sees. 
I found it good to be Person 1 of the problem, but better to be the mediator.
I learned that mediators help me with problems.

Statistical Inquiry Cycle

Analysing my Graph

  • Most abundant month: December (7)

  • Scarcest months: March, May, July, August, September, October (1)
  • Nobody months: January, April, June
I was learning how to use the statistical inquiry cycle.
I had to ask a question or think of a question.
Then I had to make a Google Forms document to collect information.
Then I had to make a graph from the results.
Finally I had to analyse data.
I found it easy to do this because I had created the form.
