# maths mate sheet 2 problem 23

Predict: I predict this problem will be about addition.

Read: Fill in the missing digits in the sum.

1  6   _

5  5  5

+  _ 4  9

______

9  _  8

Clarify: I have no words, sentences or phrases to clarify (it’s pretty self-explanatory.)

Big Question: What are the missing digits?

Mathematicians Toolbox:  Work backwards.

Solve: 9 + 5 is 14, but there is an 8 at the bottom, therefore I need to get to 18- the box is a 4. Carry the one. 6 + 5 + 4+1 (because we carried it) is 16 – 6 in the box and carry the one. 1 + 1 + 5 is 7, but the answer is 9 – the box is 2.

Summarize:  My prediction was correct, as this was an addition sum. My mathematicians toolbox strategy-  work backwards was a big help in this sum.

# Mathsmate T4 S8

Predict I predict this sum will be about addition.

 + 7 1 13 1 7 13

Clarify I have no words sentences or phrases to clarify. (It’s pretty straight forward.)

Big Question Fill in the gaps in the addition table.

Mathematicians Toolbox Break the problem into manageable parts.

Solve So, the first numbers I deal with are the numbers on the top row. Now, this blank square only has a 7 in its column. It does have a 13 but that doesn’t help much. What + 1=7? 6. That’s the top row done.

Second one. What + seven is 13? 6. 6+1+=7, put the seven down in the second row, third column.6+6=12, put that down in the last column.

Third row. 7+1=8, 8 goes in the first column. 1+1=2, 2 goes in the third column.

Fourth and final row. Because there is a blank square with two blank ones next to it, we start at the fourth column. 6+ what = 13? 7. Seven goes in the first column. 7+7=14. 14 goes in the second column. 1+7=8, 8 goes in the third column. And we are done. Whoo!

 + 7 1 6 6 13 7 12 1 8 2 7 7 14 8 13

# Team 3 reflection

Team 3 reflection

In team 3 we had a  task to  do a project on a Austrian explorer . We had to choose   to be in a group.  2 of my classmates which where Lilli ,Sozoe and myself we choose to  be in a group and we do it on Marine biologist . His name was Mark Norman he had found over 150 new species of octopuses.

Three facts I found interesting and surprising

During this project I gained a lot of  knowledge and facts on Mark Norman .Firstly  I found is  facts Interesting  that he has found over 150 new sepsis of  octopuses. I think even found 50 new sepsis of octopuses is an achievement to this day he is still trying to find new sepsis of octopuses.

Secondly  The Mimic octopus is a smaller octopus, growing to an average length of about 60cm, roughly two feet, and their tentacles grow to be 25 inches long, with a diameter about the same as a pencil at their widest. The octopus’s natural color is a light brown/beige color. However, they are usually a more noticeable color of striped white and brown to scare off predators by appearing to be poisonous. It is unknown whether the mimic octopus is in fact poisonous to its predators

The last fact I found interesting is that Mark Norman works with the university of Victoria and the museum of Victoria  and he is working with  a marine biologist team and  are look at the 12 apostles and are look in the reef. They are making new technology to get deep enough to take pictures. In one scene you can probably see 10-15 species of fish, 20-30 species of sponge and coral, and deep seaweeds.”

Two understandings I now have:

That he works at the University Of Perth, where he works through Museum Victoria. When I first heard that I thought ‘how could he work at two places at one?’ then I re-read it and no I understand it

Another thing I now understand is that when you are typing into Google only type key words rather than sentences. I now understand that because when I was researching nothing came up because I was typing sentences.

One wondering I still have is

working on What will he discover next he has already discovered 150 species and now his the 12 apostles and they haven’t been explored   properly.  It will be  interesting to hear of what Mark and his team find.

What were the most important things I learnt?

How did I learn it?

What am I going to do with what I have learnt?

The most important things I learnt are that as still being  a marine biologist Mark had time to write seven books. I learnt this fact as I was researching more about him, it came up and I didn’t expect that. I am going to believe that you can follow your dream and also do another.

Finally a concluding statement where you share your overall thoughts and feelings about your project, the work you did, what you learnt and how it was working with your team

I really enjoyed the project even when we presented it,  the work we did we had some ups and downs but ended up with a amazing project. It was great working with the team as we all had something to do and if we didn’t understand some part we could always ask each other. After all this has been the best project I have done.
