As the train entered the tunnel everything went black. I heard the sound of something that sounded like fire burning and sure enough when the train came out I saw that the cook’s carriage was on fire! I had to think fast so I ran to the driver to tell him to stop the train so we could put out the fire but he didn’t hear me. My mind was rushing so I did the only thing that came to my mind… I jumped of the train. I saw the train speed past and knew I was safe. For now…

# Project Proposal

Explorer’s project

We would like if Bailey, Bryn and Jack would be able to work in a group of three because we all believe that we will be able to work together in a way that will make the outcome of the project be panoply of all the tasks that will be thrown at us. we think it will be a good learning opportunity for all of us to learn from each other as the project rolls on. This project will be a plethora of new and exciting things that we will be able to discover/learn during this project. We all think that we will share the work load equally so no one will be left out of the project and everyone will learn from it.

Explorer

We would like to work on the Australian explorer John O’ Sullivan. He studies in the area of astronomy. He will have a lot of new information for all of us to learn about. We chose to work on him because we are all interested in the topic of astronomy and he was the first one we found on the topic of astronomy. He has been working in astronomy for 30 years so he is very experienced and should have a lot of information for us to learn about and then present it.

How were going to present it.

We have decided to use the program called museum box to present our project because it is set out in a way that will help everyone learn from it. And it is creative and will show your information in a creative way that helps everybody enjoy the presentation. It can hold a lot information so we can put as much as we learned into our presentation so expect a lot of detailed information if we are able to use museum box to present our project.

Kind regards

Bailey, Bryn and Jack

# Maths Mate Term 3 Sheet 4 Question 22

A number of netball players are standing in a circle. They are evenly spaced and the third player is directly opposite the eleventh player. How many players are there all together?

To work this one out I figured the number of players between 3 and 11.

3 ~~4 5 6 7 8 9 10~~ 11

So there are 7 players between 3 and 11 so then there has to be 7 players before and after 3 and 11.

~~1 2~~ 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 ~~12 13 14 15 16~~

~~Then you just add up all the numbers and the total is the answer.~~

So the answer is 16 netball players.

They soon reported what they had seen to the government and they soon had the problem under control and the man arrested for scaring tourists.

# Maths Mate Term 3 Sheet 3 Question 23

Fill in the missing digits in the subtraction.

First I worked out that 6-5 is 1 so one goes in the first box.

Then I worked out that 10-7 is 3 but you can’t put 10 in the box so you make it a 0 and borrow 1 from the 8 make the 8 7 and make the 0 10 so 0 goes in the second box.

Then 7-? is 4 so the number is 3 so 3 goes in the last box.
