Convincing a sceptic

In math in year 6 we have been convincing our sceptic mine was Leo. I needed to make a square out of paper and I needed to make Leo believe that it was a square. so what I tolled Leo was that if I unfolded it the four outer triangles made up a half so if I took two of those triangle away it would be a square . Leo was convinced. After Leo and I went up to show the class. I was impressed with what I’d done. My favorite part was convincing Leo. It will help me in the future because if someone wasn’t convinced that they needed that amount of change then I would need to convince them why it’s that amount of money. I learnt that we always need to convince other people .

My favorite one was convincing the sceptic because I think I was the best at it on my table and Leo was the best sceptic too.I also like the fact that we were convincing other people.

Growing shapes and making mistakes

In maths, year 6 have been investigating Growing shapes and making mistakes. What we did was that, we had to explain what we noticed without using numbers in your justification. After  that we had finished that
we were aloud to use numbers and mathematical lan
guage to justify are answer.What i learned was that there is always a pattern to solve you answer. The skills we developed were collaboration,self believe and many more.The skills i can take away fromthis is that, don’t give up if it gets hard,use you noticing skills to help you solve your learning.The way this could help you in the big wold is that, it can help you with if you are a bissnes  manager you need to find a pattern if something is going wrong or if you need to get some change you find a pattern to see if you need more or they gave you less.

My favorite one was convincing a sceptic, because if you were the sceptic you had to ask tough questions to them say you can get more evidence of them. some of the questions were, how do you do that?, can you elaborate on that ?and can you proove that to me? We found it very hard do think of questions that would push the other person to there abilities. As you can see, in the picture we were all working collaboratively and using there self believe as well. There were three levels to be convincing

1.convince your self:easy

2.convince your friend:medium

3.convince your sceptic:hard

Manipulating Numbers

In maths , we have been using 4’s . We could use any operation but we had to use 4 4’s , we had to make the the numbers 1-20 . We had to use  Resillence ,Team work ,Self belive and Consiontrasion .In the future, this will help me in save money and buggets . If i went to the shop and got change but it was the rong I could check and make sure I get the right amount.

My favroute is pattern seeking because we got to learn about fibonacci sequence 3,5,8,13 . we got to watch a cool clip it told use about spirals is in darth vadares mask and in a pine cone .

Brain crossing

In maths we had to look at a group of patterns and see what we could see, by being as imaginitive as we could .We learnt that we can see lots of patterns by looking at a piece of paper .The skills i developed were collaberation,thinking hard,consontrating,team work and being helpful.In the future it will help you because it will make you learn more about patterns in maths and as you get older you begin to see more patterns so patterns will help everyone and everywhere.

My favirout is manipulating numbers because we had to use four fours and make the number four .We could not use less than four fours and we could not use more than four fours.It was fun and chalanging.
