Maths portfolio sample

Description: I have been working with Tory for maths.this term we look at multiplication and division.

Big idea and imagines 

The question here was 180 divided by 35 =
So I went 35  70 105 140 175 and I could not add 35 again so the answer was 5 r 5
The r means remainder.

R & C
With this it was the same question as the one above but I rounded it and then I compensation it.

PVP stands for place value proposition.

With this one I did the same strategy as the one at the top but with a different question.

Evaluation:I think I rushed it a bit.

Writing portfolio sample

Description:in writing I have been doing idea my goal was to plan.
This is my story:

This is my plan:

                               The big mission 

"What" a cat in a cage and a bird out. 

So how do you did a cat get in the cage.

So the Owner had just let the bird out and left the room but there was a cat in the room the bird did not like the cat.

So the yellow bird had just rigged the cage up to the roof with some fraying rope it was very weak and then she put some old smelly tuna underneath the cat came over and started to eat the tuna the bird cut the rope and bang the cat was stuck.

Then the dog walked in because he wanted to chase the cat but the cat was in the cage so he couldn't but nothing would stop the dog. So the dog walked up to the bird but the bird was up for a fight the dog got a big scratch down its face so he ran away into his dog kennel.

The dog was a spy so he went into his own house the door was the bottom of his dog kennel 
He put on all of his spy gear and got ready. He went into the room next to the room with the bird and the cat in it so got out his grappling hook gun and shot it up onto the roof and then he pulled himself up onto the roof.Then he put on his suction gloves on and pulled himself over to the manhole that took you up in to the air vents he slide to the manhole that dropped into the room with the bird and the cat in it. 

He dropped into the room and knocked out the little yellow bird and he fried up the bird and then the cat and the dog started to eat it up and they lived happily ever after....

Evaluation: I think need to plan to put Moro describing words in.

Feedback/Feedforward you have done a good job describing what happened in the story but you could have put more describing words in there #Thomas

This is my mihi it tells my story is Maori.



We have been learning about transformation.  We have specifically learnt that...

  • translation is when an object slides in any direction;

  • rotation is when an object is turned around a central point;

  • reflection is when an object is flipped and has a line of symmetry.

Our challenge was to design a car badge that contained at least one of these aspects of transformation.
