Whenua iti

Last week we went to Whenua Iti in Lower Moutere. We did high ropes, trapeze and played some games. We had heaps of fun and it improved our confidence. :)

At maths today we made sculptures out of marshmallows and toothpicks. We found out the fractions of each colour we had.
Green: 3 Yellow:4 Pink: 12 White: 32. All together we had 50 marshmallows.
These are our fractions 3/50, 2/25, 6/25, 16/25.

The Falling Tower of Pisa

The Falling Tower of Pisa is 3/13 yellow, 5/13 pink, 3/13 green and 4/13 white.

The 2012 Big Ben

My Tower, The 2012 Big Ben is 5/13 white, 4/13 yellow and 4/13 pink.


Today for maths we had to create a subculture with marshmallows and tooth picks. We had to find out what fractions of a colour marshmallow we had. Taylor and I had 3/7 of pink and we had 35 all together.
This is ours.
