Problem Pictures Chocolate Bar

Predict: We predict that ian this problem we will have to find out how many pieces of chocolate there is and we will have to use our multiplication skills.


Clarify: Nothing to clarify.

Big Question: How much does the chocolate bar weigh and how many pieces are there?

Mathematicians Toolbox Strategy: Draw a diagram.

Solve: To solve this problem we had to measure the width and length of one piece of chocolate. the width was 5mm and the length was 6mm. So then using that information we drew the chocolate bar and then filled it in and our answer is 50.

Summery: We didn’t use that much multiplication we used our measuring skills more.




Spelling city list 40

With this list I noticed that all the words had a bossy e on the end, Some of the words I had we’re Cake, Flame, Frame and Use. I found this list quite easy because after a while I realised that I had already done this list. I also think that the strategy was bossy e because there were 20 words and the only thing that I noticed was the e.


Who: Dr Isobel Bennett- is a Marine Biologist who worked in Australia and Antarctica.

Why:  We would like to do our project on her because she helped a lot of other scientists explore the Great Barrier Reef. She is well known for her work with William John Dakin because she helped with research for his book.

Team: Brigitte, Josh and Serena

How: Play/Interview- Keep the audience engaged with comedy and lots of ‘did you know facts’.

Today’s Maths Goal

Today’s maths goal is to develop my understanding of the Mathematicians toolbox strategy’s. Here is a link to the strategy’s. The problem that I work out i felt was quit challenging at the start because I didn’t know how I was going to go about solving it. But then i found a pattern and went with it. The Pattern was 0-0, 0-1, 0-2, 0-3, 0-4 and so on and so on until i got to 9-9. In the end we found out the answer to the problem was 55.

If i ever do this problem again i think i  would be more careful when i am writing down the pattern because when we had finished writing we realized that we had forgotten to add 2-3 and that could have stuffed our answer up completely.

In the end i realized that this problem wasn’t as hard as i originally thought and that it was actually really easy once we found the pattern.

Maths Mate term 3 sheet 3

Predict: I predict that this problem is going to involve multiplication.

Read: There are crickets standing in a circle and the 2nd cricket is standing opposite the 7th cricket. How many crickets are in the circle?

Clarify: I have nothing to clarify.

Maths Toolbox: To solve this I drew a diagram.

Solve: First I drew a diagram and counted how many crickets were in the circle. I got 8. Then I drew the diagram again to make sure I was right and i was . then I made sure that the 2nd cricket was oppisite the 7th and it was. so that was my answer.

Answer: The answer is 8.



Problem Pictures-Dominoes with nine spots

Predict: We predict that in this problem we will have to use our multiplication skills.


Clarify: Nothing to Clarify.

Mathematicians Toolbox Strategy: Draw a diagram. 

Solve: For the first part of the question we got 55. To get this answer we had to draw a diagram we drew it like this 0-1, 0-2 , 0-3 and so on. But before that we got 36 because we multiplied it by 4 because 6×4=28 so we thought it might have worked the other way but it didn’t.

Summery: We got our prediction wrong. And we had to go at the question twice.


What Do We Know About Australia Before The British Came?

Before the British came to Australia it was run by Aboriginals. Aboriginals were the first people to become mainlanders of Australia but when the British came they took Australia for there own.

Food and Shelter:

Back then Aboriginals used to struggle to survive because of the heat but they somehow managed. The men would go out and kill for there family to eat while the rest of the family would stay. Aboriginals would also struggle for shelter and would make it out if leaf’s and sticks.


The Aboriginals would were tiny sets of clothes. For pants they would were a tiny little peace of material and men wouldn’t even were tops. While woman wore A little peace of material for a top.
