A10. Design Your Own Challenge: Build Something To Store Money In.

A10. Design Your Own Challenge: Build Something To Store Money In.


In this home learning challenge I made an ATM to store money in. Here are some images.
This is the first step to the finished design. And the second and third image is the inside of it.
This was fun and hard to keep it tougher, if you use hot glue it will take 5 minutes but if you use another glue it will take around 2 hours, so I don't recommend other glue.

If you look at the first image the slots are for the card to go in and push out the money. The 4 holes are for $5 $10 $20 $50 notes and the the 1 slot is for the card to push out the coins. And as the 2 and 3 image show the back and where the money comes from.

Here is some images of the design on the front and top.
This is the 2 step in the design process. This is the design I had.

And here is the finished design.

Careers Education C.V. Writing

Careers Education C.V. Writing

In CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.

A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have,  rather than our work history.

Here is a link to our online Modelling Book that shows the process we have followed.

Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:

  1. It needs to be long but not to long.

  1. You need 2 referees.

  1. You need to have all of your details.

Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae. (Link your C.V. here)

Evaluate Texts

Title: Reading - Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to….apply some criteria to evaluate texts eg accuracy of information and presence of bias.


We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:
(link your own learning for each of these activities. Please make sure your sharing settings are open)

WALT: Apply simple linear proportions, including ordering fractions

WALT: Apply simple linear proportions, including ordering fractions

A thing that I learnt was how easy it is if you get the teachers help.
Something that was challenging was trying to get it right when you are so close and then you get it wrong and it takes forever to get back up.

I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions


Please complete these two problems. You will need to explain how you got the answer.

Question 1
In our household, there are twice as many cats as humans, with sixty legs in total.

How many cats are there to be fed? 12 cats got feed.
6 People Legs= 12
12 Cats Legs=48
48+12=60

Question 2
Three men run a business together.
The proportion of the profit they each get at the end of the month is based on the proportion of the funds they have invested in the business.
The April profit is shared out so that Al gets one third, Bob gets one half and Chuck gets one sixth.
In May, Des joins the group, investing half as much as Bob invested.
What share of the profit can Des expect to get?
Al= 1/3  2/6
Bob= 1/2  3/6
Chuck= 1/6  1/6
Des= 1/4

Term 1 Novel Study

Term 1 Novel Study


This term I have been reading and studying the novel Dragon Keeper


I found this novel ok because It is a good book but the start is ok and the end is ok but the middle is a little more interesting.


During the novel I had to complete a major assessment task. The first is an Explain Map which shows the consequences of a major event in the book.


National Standard this covers

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • using several pieces of information to make inferences
      using their prior knowledge, along with information in the text, to interpret abstract ideas, complex plots, and sophisticated themes
    • I can use a range of strategies, such as inferring, to work out more complex words.

Use simple fractions and percentages to describe probabilities.

Use simple fractions and percentages to describe probabilities.

WALT: Use simple fractions and percentages to describe probabilities.

Something that was challenging for me was the 3rd activity where we had to read the question and use fraction and simplify the answer.

Here is the link to my assessment task  
Here is my 3 ixl activity screen shots

The leadership trait i showed is Active thinker because we couldn't do buddy program i was able to be strong and just do it. 

Information about the Year 1 Unit

Introduction (Reading)
To introduce students to the concept of animal habitats, read them a book such as "My Very First Book of Animal Homes," by Eric Carle or the "Animal Homes Lap Book," by Jodene Lynn Smith. Make sure that students understand how different animals live in different habitats and ask them to guess which habitats common animals live in, such as whales or fish (water/ocean), monkeys or birds (rainforest/trees), etc.

Instruction
Explain to students that animals have different homes that they live in. Set out two boxes, one with a photo of an ocean and one with a photo of a rainforest. Then give each student the picture of an animal, all of which live in either the ocean or in the rainforest, and ask them to place their animal into the appropriate box. Possible pictures include those of whales, seals, fish, octopi, sharks, monkeys, toucans, tigers, and jaguars. Students should be able to differentiate between animals that make their homes in the water and those that make their homes in trees and on dry land.

Group members: Brook, Jade and Solani

WALT: I can effectively teach juniors about Games without equipment

5minutes
We will tell them the game we are playing and the rules. Our first game will be Simon says and then Duck duck goose and the kid are good they can choose but if they can’t agree then we will play tricky tag.

For the starter, I made garlic bread and the first step was to...
get the butter and crushed garlic and put the butter is the microwave for 20 seconds and we tried crushing it but it was too hard so we put it in for 10 more seconds and then added some crushed garlic and mixed. After we made the garlic butter we cut the bread and put the butter and then cooked it for 5 minutes and then we ate it it was yum.

For the main course, we made Mac and Cheese the first step was to... 
The ingredients we used were Milk, bacon, flour, red onion, butter, macaroni and cheese. The resources we use were- knife, chopping board, frying pan and two pots. the first thing we did was get one of the pans and filled it with water and set it to 7 degrees. Then we chopped the butter and put it in one of the pots and melted it 7 degrees and then cut up the bacon and put it in the frying pan and also cut up the onion in the pan and set it to 5 degrees. 
After we add the milk to the butter and could not stop storing for longer than 20 seconds (my arms got tired). Then we added the macaroni to the hot water and stored the water and kept and eye on everything. After we finished making it we tipped it into a bowl and my mum stored it so it wouldn't go everywhere.
I was first finished (yum)
