During this session we learnt that, you have at least 7 seconds to get your audiences attention,and at least  30 seconds to whether they will listen or not, we also had to start with a powerful statement, personal story or a thought provoking question . Our speech was based on graffiti, tell us... Is Graffiti art or Vandalism??

Mean,Median,mode,range

Statistics                                                           name: Hosea

WALT- Identify the mean, median and mode within a collection of data

Activity One
Answer the questions in a different colour

The definition of the mean in a statistical investigation is commonly referred to as the average. It is the total of all the data divided by the amount of data shown.
For example: if we have this range of data 3,5,7,1,2,3,6,8

3+5+7+1+2+3+6+5  = 32  = 4
             8                      8

  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers:
3,7,8,4,2,6,5,4,3,9 = 51÷10 = 5 r 1
  1. Find the mean in the set of numbers
4,12,5,6,11,9,5 = 52 ÷ 7 = 7 r 3
  1. Find the mean in this tally chart

IIIII IIIII II

  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
24,12,16,18  70 ÷ 4 = 17 r 2
  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
5,9,12,4,10,7  47 ÷ 6 = 7.r5
  1. CHALLENGE QUESTION: Find the mean within this data, use the frequency table to help you
1,5,5,2,1,2,5,5,5,5,1,2,1,5,5 50 ÷ 15 = 3 r 5

Score

Total
15


Activity Two
Answer the questions in a different colour

The definition of the median is the middle number within a set of numbers that have been put in order from size (biggest to smallest or smallest to biggest)
For example: 2,6,4,1,9 = 1,2,4,6,9 and the middle number is 4.
BUT say if there is more than one middle number… the median is found by taking the number midway between the middle pair of numbers:
3,6,1,4,9,2 = 1,2,3,4,6,9 → 3 + 4 = 3.5
                                             2

Find the median in these sets of numbers

  1. 10,14,17,12,19,11,16
  2. 10,11,12,14,16,17,19 = 14

  1. 34,42,37,31,40 = 37
  2. 31,34,37,40,42

  1. 101, 167,138,124,198,149  = 143.5
  2. 101,

  1. 54, 58,52,57,53,60 =55.5
  2. 52,53,54,57,58,60

  1. 1001, 1094, 1023, 1065, 1038, 1027, 1042 =1038
  2. 1001,1023,1027,1038,1042,1065,1094

  1. Find the median within this tally chart

Pets owned by students

Cats
IIIII II

Rabbits

Hamsters

10,12,4,8,2 =9
2,4,8,10,12







Activity Three
The mode is the most frequent number in a set of data. The number that occurs most often.
For example: In a set of numbers 3, 7, 8, 4, 2, 6, 5, 4, 3, 9 there is two modes, 3 and 4 because they appear twice in the data set.
Note- There can either be 0, 1 or 2 modes. If there are 3 or more numbers occur the same number of times, there is no mode.

Find the mode in these sets of numbers
  1. 2, 1, 5, 3, 7, 8, 5, 3 ,9 = 3 , 5
  2. 1, 5, 3, 2, 9 ,4, 1, 6, 8, 0  = 1
  3. 23, 45, 78, 12, 45, 67, 32, 46, 93, 12 = 12
  4. 101, 121, 123, 145, 167, 121, 139, 145, 176= 121
  5. 394, 273, 219, 294, 183, 291, 273, 288, 271 = 273


range


  1. 32, 34, 37, 40,41 =9
  2. 92, 94, 96, 98,100 = 8
  3. 69, 72, 74, 76,79,80 =11
  4. 52,54,55,57,58 = 6
  5. 111,112,115,120,125 =14

Why our intervals should be longer?

Todays title is going to be why our intervals should be longer… Why should it be longer? Because most of our time is spent learning but we could just do homework at home. Isn't that what wifi is for? Why can’t our intervals be longer, is it because they want us to learn more?.

Reason one. it may affect our learning, but how can we solve this problem?. Our morning tea should start earlier than it normally starts and our lunch should also be earlier. students love to talk to each other in class, most teachers get annoyed and tell them of give three strikes or even Re-Think.

Another reason kids should have longer intervals is because they might want to play outside longer or they might want to play Basketball longer. Some people have been asking why our intervals are short and why can’t they make it longer.

My last reason why students and kids should have longer intervals is because when students ask teachers to go to the toilet they go toilet but when they see their friends they play around and muck around in the toilets. Then end up getting in trouble.

I hope every body agrees with me and I hope that we get longer intervals

Writing explanation Unedited and edited



Unedited
A special place that I like is pt england school. Pt ngland school is a special place because you get to learn stuff that you did not know about, You also get to meet new friends and teachers. This is a special place because it has all the knowledge you need in the future ahead of you.

I think Pt england school is one of my favourite places especially when you get to eat your lunch and play outside. The best subjects I like are writing, reading, maths and P.E. A sport that I love to play is basketball, i like to play basketball with my friends at morning tea and lunchtime this is one of my favourite sports because it is fun and cool to play.

annual polyleshes festival


Yesterday team 5 went to the polyfest in manukau. The reason we went there was because we wanted to learn about different cultures. Polyfest is a three day annual polynesian festival or polyfest.

If I could choose the best think it would be the stalls that were every where. Like the counties manukau police. It was fun because there were  a lot that you know or did not know about police and what they do.

My second highlight was the stage’s like the Diversity stage, maori stage and the samoan stage. But my most favourite stage was the maori stage.

Polyfest is important to people especially to those who are not confident on stage because it helps be courageous on stage and help them perform with kia kaha. Another reason is it helps your social relation with other people and helps make friends

So next time you hear about polyfest come along and don't forget about the food.

Why people need water



Water is one of the main states of matter. People have believed that drinking water can only make you hydrated but that's not the only thing it does here are a few benefits of what water can do.

Dehydration can cause headaches and fatigue. How?
Dehydration is not a simple health issue. Anyone can run out of liquids in their body due to various reasons. not drinking enough water can cause Headaches and fatigue.

Keeping Hydrated.
Water can clean us and can clean our system. Keeping hydrated helps us flush out toxins in the body that can build up and not getting enough water makes us get headaches, exhaustion and make you feel and run unofficially.

Not getting enough water can make your body smell more potent.
Not getting enough water causes dehydration which releases toxins out of our body which makes us sweat and smell more potent. Dehydration is when your body is not getting enough water. Say for example you have a car that you have been driving around and you run out of gas that's like your system.

As you can see water is useful in our lives and why we should not waste water.
