### Perimeter, Area and Volume.

In maths we have been learning to:
• Deduce and use formulae to find the perimeters and areas of polygons & the volumes of prisms.
• Find the Perimeters and areas of circles and composite shapes & the volumes of prisms, and cylinders.

Here is some evidence of my learning.

Include screen shots for all of the IXL activities that you have done

You can also find evidence of my learning in my Maths book.

Extended abstract task
Extended abstract Answer

My Next Step: Is to apply this knowledge to real life situations involving perimeter, area and volume.

### Koru Games Reflections

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was touch rugby

Our team won 4 games out of 8 and we came 9th

I found the experience to be good because we managed to work as a team and did well in our first year

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is Extended abstract because I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve.

For Teamwork; my solo level is relational because I can participate and take responsibility in a team and explain my choices in terms of team outcomes.

 Individuals and groups I need help to work in a group (with teachers or other students I can work in a group with my friends. I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team I can respond positively to the needs of others I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve Teamwork I need help to interact with others. I need help to participate in a team. I can interact with others one to one. I can participate in a team. I can interact with others in a small group. I can participate and take responsibility in a team. I can participate and take responsibility in a team and explain my choices in terms of team outcomes. I can participate in creating healthy teams by taking responsibility and critical action.

### Reason with linear proportions Assessment task

WALT: Reason with linear proportions
I have been learning 3 WALTS
1.National Standard 1: Combine simple proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up in a unit of 10 like 3 yellow with 7 blue, 5 yellow with 5 blue, 4 yellow with 6 blue. Say what the fraction and percentage of each stack is for yellow and blue.

2.National Standard 2: - Combine proportions to work out what parts the whole is made up of using non-multiple of 10 like 8 yellow:5 blue:4 white with 11 yellow:11 blue:11 white (19:16:15 and 38%:32%:30%)

3. National Standard 3: - Order fractions with unlike denominators by finding a common denominator
My evidence: Assessment Task
My next step is: Know how to do these really well

### Reading-Evaluate Texts

In reading we have been learning to apply some criteria to evaluate texts eg accuracy of information and presence of bias.

We have been evaluating texts against the following four criteria:
1. Readability
2. Accuracy
3. Relevance
4. Quality of language/ information.

These documents show evidence of my learning during this unit:

My Next Step: Is to continue to apply this new knowledge and evaluate texts as I read them, checking for readability, accuracy, relevance and quality of language/ information.
