My learning disposition

I think that I am a self managing learner because...

Time:get on with your work most of the time,

Choices:don't sit next to a blocker,follow your time table,

To be able to move to being a self directed learner I must 

Time:I get on with my learning all of the time,

Choices:I sit in a quiet space so nothing destracdid of the noise all of the time.
Don't sit next to your friends all of the time,

This is what I am going to do to move to being a self directed learner:

Clay day

WALT: share an experience with an audience
Success Criteria:
Share an experience so that someone else feels as thought they are experiencing it with you.
Share what you learnt
Share what you would do differently next time

We had a clay day at school yesterday and my favirate is this robot head. I learnt that the clay is squishy at first then it goes hard after a while. I think I should not fiddle with it to much because it gets crates in the clay.
Reflection: I think I did well at ding what I learnt and what I should do next time.

Stats sharp shooter


WALT calculate the mean, median, mode and range for a set of data. TASK Elly and Troy want to find out once and for all:

  • ●  which Activity Group has the overall best score, (mean)

  • ●  which Activity Group has the highest middle number, (median)

  • ●  what score was the most common, (mode)

  • ●  which activity group has the highest range. (range)

    In everyday life people collect data to look for trends and make decisions. In order to analyse the information, we need to understand the different ways to lOOK at the data.

    Success Criteria you will know you are successful when:

  • ●  calculatethemeanbyaddingupallthedata(9+4+4+5+8=30)then divide the total by how many numbers there were (9, 4, 4, 5, 8 = 5 numbers so 30÷5=6).

  • ●  calculate the median by ordering all numbers from smallest to biggest then selecting the middle number (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 5 is the middle number). If there are 6 numbers e.g. 4, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, then the median is halfway = 5.5.

  • ●  calculate the mode by identifying which number occurs most often (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 4 because there are two of them). You can have more than one mode.

  • ●  calculate the range by finding the difference between the highest and lowest numbers(9-4=5).

    Data: 40,36,40 total 116 

    Devon 44 25 34=104

    Liam 0 0 9= 9 olivia 44 44 46=134

    Range: highest is 40 lowest is 36

    Mode: 40,40

    Median 36,40,40

    Mean: 40

Measles articall

Nearly 40 people in Auckland have recently been diagnosed with the infectious measles disease.
Westlake Boys High School on Aucklands North Shore is one of the hardest hit communities with 20 ill students. 
Several other Westlake Boys High pupils who have not been immunised against measles have been asked to stay away for the next two weeks.
Measles is a very serious disease that is highly contagious and can spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. 
The symptoms include fever, a cough, sore eyes and a rash. There is no treatment, and complications can be severe.
The Auckland Health Service has estimated that around 750 people are at immediate risk of catching the highly contagious disease.
Dr. Julia Peters said the Health Service had been working with the North Shore school for just over a week when the first case of measles was found there.
"This is definitely more than what we'd normally see. We're working hard to contain the measles within the Auckland region."
Dr. Peters said many people who had come down with the disease had recently been overseas and, in particular, in the Philippines.
The public health service has sent information to parents and students at Westlake Boys High and asked that those students who are not sure whether they have been immunised against measles to stay away.
"What we're trying to do is isolate those students as well as those who have measles, because students who are not immunised can get sick," she said.
Another seven cases of measles in Auckland are being investigated - three of them from the same school.
What to watch for Symptoms
* High fever.
* Runny nose, cough, red eyes.
* Small white spots inside mouth.
* Red, blotchy rash on face and neck and later over entire body.
