Week 6 Term 3
- Show understanding by creating a detailed show-me of your learning.
- Show problem solving by applying your learning to some worded problems.
- Show fluency by using appropriate units of measurement and mathematical instruments when solving problems. And by using estimation to check your answers.
- Create your own worded problems on your topic for yourself and others to solve.
- Show reasoning by explaining the strategies you used to solve problems.
- Show understanding by planning and conducting a workshop on your topic, use the questions you have written within your workshop.
- Show reasoning and understanding by relating your topic to the real world, what examples and problems can you find. Post this on your blog.
- Create a representative sample experiment/event that will have equally likely outcomes to a larger set of data. This could be within your Big Idea investigation.
- Assign probabilities to the outcomes of events and determine probabilities for events.
Data representation and interpretation
- Construct and compare a range of data displays including stem-and-leaf plots and dot plots. This could be within your Big Idea investigation.
- Calculate and describe mean, median, mode and range for sets of data. Interpret these statistics in the context of data. This could be within your Big Idea investigation.
Using units of measurement
- Investigate and demonstrate using concrete materials the formulas for areas of rectangles, triangles and parallelograms and use these in problem solving.
- Calculate volumes of rectangular prisms and other polyhedra. Can you make predictions about the likely volume of a polyhedra. Example.. comparing the volume of two polyhedra.
- Investigate and draw different views of prisms and solids formed from combinations of prisms.
Location and transformation
- Describe translations, reflections in an axis, and rotations of multiples of 90°. Identify line and rotational symmetries.
- Identify corresponding, alternate and co-interior angles when two straight lines are crossed by a transversal.
- Investigate conditions for two lines to be parallel and solve simple numerical problems using reasoning.
- Investigate and prove what the angle sum of a triangle is? Use this to find the angle sum of a quadrilateral.
- Classify triangles according to their side and angle properties and describe quadrilaterals.
