  2. How to make a Bar/Collum graph

    November 7, 2013 by kaitlinb2012

    How to make a Bar Graph/Column Graph 

    A graph is a visual representation of  data. Graphs are much easier to read for visual learners and learners that want a clear straight way of knowing there information. To make your very own bar graph read the following procedural text. You will make a simple graph.

    Please Note

    You will need some data before you start your graph to fill in the graph.

    Materials Needed 

    • Coloured Pencils [if you would like to colour your graph in]
    • Ruler
    • A4 [or bigger if you want] piece of paper
    • Pencil

    Method:

    1. Firstly with your paper, pencil and ruler draw an L shape that has a horizontal line and a vertical line with a 90 degrees angle in the bottom left hand corner. Don’t make it to big just make sure you have some space around it to write on.

     

    2. On the vertical line (y axis)number it from top to bottom and make sure they are evenly spaced. Start with 0 when numbering and number it to the number of votes you have. Make sure your numbers are evenly spaced.

     

     

    3. On the horizontal line [x axis] your answers you told when you did the vote. Say the question was ‘what is your favourite animal’ the answers could be dog, cat, fish, pig, horse [you can have as many as you want. If you don’t have enough room just write 1,2,3,4 etc. and have a key saying

    1=red

    2=blue

    3=green [this would be if your question was ‘what is your favourite colour’]

    Or just write the questions.

    4. Now we need to add the data to put in our graph. With your ruler on the horizontal line, draw a rectangle starting from the horizontal line and draw it to the number on the vertical line about how many people voted for that. Say you did a survey on what colour cars we going past and you saw 12 red ones then you would draw it up to the 12th number on the vertical line.

    Make sure with every rectangle you do it should be the same width.

    5. Do that with every answer. Now if you want colour it in and write a title or the question up the top. This is an example of a completed.

     


  3. My Trait Graphs

    November 7, 2013 by kaitlinb2012

    During term 4 all 5/6 classes have been working on Forensic Science. We had to make graphs on our traits. Some of the traits were: who an roll there tongue and who has freckles. Firstly, we had to collect the data from the class with the given questions. After, we have to put or collected data into a excel program. Excel is used for making graphs and charts.

     


  4. GTAC Reflection – 1/11/13

    November 1, 2013 by kaitlinb2012

    On the 31st of October Moonee Ponds Primary School went to GTAC. GTAC is a program that includes problem solving from a crime, learning about microscopes and more. We were introduced to a lady called Jacinta and a Lady called Nicole. Nicole and Jacinta explained all about what we were going to be doing while we were at GTAC. I was placed in a group with Amelia, Rebecca, Astride, Jessie and myself Kaitlin. Our group leader was called Sen and he is a scientist and study’s biochemistry, which is like alsimosers. Follow this link to GTAC’S website: Link: Follow this link to the GTAC website. http://www.gtac.edu.au/site/home.html

     

    I learnt all about microscopes and there were two I found really interesting they were called: compound microscopes and stereo microscopes. Compound microscopes are used for helping you see a thin item and small details. The stereo microscope is used for seeing things close up like a leaf, if you wanted to see the small details and patterns you use a stereo microscope.

     

    We had to solve a problem that included evidence that had been collected. The evidence that was collected from the suspect was a dung beetle behind the ear of the suspect, drenched fur, leaf around neck, seeds in the suspect’s fur, and feathers in fur beard. We didn’t get to finish the problem as we had limited time to get everything else done.

     

    After, our group had some evidence. The evidence we had been given was a leaf, dung beetle, seeds, feathers. We had a chance to put the evidence under the stereo microscope, and we got to see the really detailed patterns. The dung beetle was really interesting to explore. I got to see inside of the dung beetles head and it was gross but interesting. All of the patterns that were on the feather were amazing. Even the bits of were the feathers are coming out you could see and it’s literally impossible to see with your eye. The seeds were really interesting as well because they had fur and patterns that I had never seen before.

     

    Also, we had dirty water as some evidence. Our group had to get into pairs and get a piece of glass to put our sample water on. Then we put an ultra-thin piece of glass on top. When we had done that we put it under a compound microscope and we saw all kinds of germs, bacteria’s alive moving around.

     

    Facts: Compound microscopes are used for helping you see a thin item and small details. The stereo microscope is used for seeing things close up like a leaf, if you wanted to see the small details and patterns you use a stereo microscope. Using microscopes help you see and kind of detail or pattern.

     

    Understandings: My understanding of microscopes is very good after having a whole day around them and learning about them. My first understanding of a microscope is that they are used to collect small patterns, detail, and evidence. My second understanding is that Spirogyra is commonly found in fresh water, also that euglena is found in fresh and salt water, Paramecium is only found in fresh water ponds.

     

    Question: My question is that how many science jobs are there?

     

    Here are some photos of our brilliant day!

    Predict: I predict this problem is about division

    Read:  ? divided by 5 =9?

    Clarify: nothing to clarify

    Big Question: What do you need to divide by 5 to get 9?

    Strategies: prior knowledge and inverse operations. Follow This Link For More Strategies: http://kaitlin2012.global2.vic.edu.au/maths-toolbox/

    Solve: I knew that 5×9 equals 45, so 45 divided by 5 must equal 9

    Summary: This Problem Was Really Easy To Work Out Because I Already Know My Times Tables And Division.


  6. 100WC Week 7 – …slowly the sky got darker…

    October 21, 2013 by kaitlinb2012

    It was a cold sunny day in the park. There were kids playing everywhere intill they hurd a scary swooshing sound coming from the sky. Suddenly the sky came closing in slowly making the world really dark and scared. The next minute the sky was pitch, the street lights weren’t even bright enough you hardly see the light. Everyone screamed as they saw a tornado coming. They ran for there life intill they ran into another one. Tornados were surrounding the people that lived in Steve Town. Everyone was in tears but the tornadoes just came in and killed and killed and killed everyone and everything…

     


  7. Maths Mate – Term 4 Sheet 1

    October 21, 2013 by kaitlinb2012

    Predict: I predict this problem will be about multiplication

    Read: Fill in the missing number. 12 x ? = 36.

    Clarify: I had nothing to clarify

    Big Question: 12 times what equals 36?

    Maths Toolbox: Prior knowledge and break it into managable parts

    Solve: I know that when you count by twelve, all you need to do is go up by 10 then add two.  All you need to do now is count up by twelve until you get 36.  12, 24, 36. The end result was 3!


  8. Holiday Learnings

    October 14, 2013 by kaitlinb2012

    Today I shared my 2 key things I have learned during the holidays. The two categorys that they were based around were facts and knowledge. First we shared them with partners and then our partners had to share one of those things with the class.

    My two points were:

    #1 When I went out to Cresent Head we went out to an old jail and my cousins and I got shown all the carvings outside of the jail that the people carved to make to walls for the jail, and when you saw the carvings you can see how hard it was to carve thru hard rock with sticks. We also saw where people had bombed up big rocks to get all rock out. I learned this by observing and touching it.

    #2 Also when i was in Cresent Head I went swimming in a creek and didn’t look for rocks or any dangerouse surroundings. So I’ve pretty much learned to look for dangerouse surroundings.


  9. 2D and 3D Shapes

    October 14, 2013 by kaitlinb2012

     2D and 3D Shapes

    Propertys And Connections

    Last term we learnt about 2D and 3D shapes. We learned that the 2D shape you are turning into a 3D shape you use the 2D as the base of the shape for example: if i was turning a triangle into a 3D shape and they had congruent size and length then they would be turned into a prism. Congruent means that the shape have the same exact length and size.

    To make a prism it doesn’t matter what kind of prism you are doing, the third shape would always be a rectangle.

    If you can only use two shapes such a triangles and pentagons that could be a pyramid. So that shape would end up being called a pentagonal pyramid.

     


  10. Spelling City

    September 9, 2013 by kaitlinb2012

    The main skill for this spelling city this week is sounding words that have a “y” at the end. Here is an example: Sky, Fly, Fairy, those are some of the words i had. When focusing on the “y” sound i found that 95% of my words had the same ending and not just because of the y because the words are alike.
