Statistical Investigation

Our math group created a diagram which shows the top six rivers in Auckland from smallest to largest. We used our collaborative skills to find out the data of each river. We put these rivers in this order from shortest to longest Whanua, Puhoi, Tamaki, Waitakere, Hoteo, Waiora. We used our knowledge to come to the conclusion on what river is the longest out of the 6 rivers in Auckland, which is Waiora being 65 km long.

I found this activity useful because I learnt how to make a statistical investigation.

Basic Facts Challenge

Today I started my maths journey with subtraction up to 20. This activity is used so that I could expand my knowledge when working with big numbers.

Today my time was 5m and 12s. My goal for next time is to complete subtraction up to 20 randomized. to achieve this goal I need to practice more and try and remember my basic facts.

Maths Riddles

For the summer learning journey I completed the task called Maths Riddles.

I needed to answer 5 tricky maths questions, for example: at the time Coco was 6 years old her sister was half her age. How old would Coco’s sister be if Coco was 20 years old? The answer would be 17 becuase is Coco’s sister was 3 at the time Coco was 6, the age gap would be 3 years, and 20-3=17.

I enjoyed this task because answering riddles is fun! I got 3/5 questions correct. I think I did good at this task.


I created a slide with information on why global warming is affecting the temperature of the planet.

First, I answered some word equasions about temperature like adding celceus and degres.

Then, I researched about why global warming is affecting the planet causing water levels to rise.

Lastly I put all of the information on a DLO and added an information link.

I enjoyed this task becuase I like researching about information.


Temprature is how hot and cold something is.

First we learnt what temprature is measured in, it is measured in degrees and celceus, sometimes ferenhight.

Then, I answers some word equasions adding degrees and celceus togeather.

Lastly I chose some questions and made a DLO answering them. For example: The hottest place on earth is Death Valley.

Reading Analog Clock

this week I learnt how to read an analog clock.

First we learnt about the 2 different types of clocks. Analog and digital. Analog clocks are the ones that have hands. A digital clock are the ones that are on technology like phones i pads, laptops, etc.

Next we used an online clock to prctice reading the time. we made 8 different ones.

I enjoyed this task because I learnt two different types of time. I need to improve on finding out the hour hand. I did well on guessing the minute hand.


I learnt about what a perimetre is and how to measure it.

First, we learnt what a perimetre is, a perimetre is the measurment of the outline of an area. The area we measured for the perimetre is our school field.

Then, we went on google maps and estimated what we thought the perimetre of the school field was. My estimates were pretty close to the actuall perimetre.

Lastly, we measured the school field on google maps and found the correct perimetres.

I enjoyed this task becuase I liked seeing how close my estimation was. I think I did good at estimating and finding the perimetre.
