Orchestra... music to my ears

As part of our amazing topic for this term; room three have been learning about an Orchestra and all the different instruments in an Orchestra. First we had to get into groups of two or three. In these groups we had to create our own digital learning object using a presentation showing our learning and research about an Orchestra. If you would like to visit partners blogs than click on either of the hyperlinks on the presentation and it will take you there.

Word Problems

Walt: find an appropriate strategy to solve a word problem

It's week one of term four which means gloss tests are on! Because of this we had to fill out this presentation and find several appropriate strategies to solve word problems. This task was really helped me to think about the strategies I use to solve a word problem. I have learnt a very valuable lesson from this google presentation and I will try to put my new brain skills into action next time I have to answer a word problem.

Problem Solving

Walt: solve math problems

This week in numeracy we have been learning how to solve math problems. During the process of this task it came to some equations where we had to solve the math problem in the order of BEDMAS. BEDMAS stands for brackets, exponents, division, multiplication, addition and subtraction. Please feel free to leave feedback for me if you learnt something from this post, and keep checking in for any updates on this presentation.

Can apes really understand sign language?

Walt: Find evidence in a text
Use the process of elimination to find the 'best fit' answer

This week our task was to read a text called Koko and collect as much information as we can to complete this google presentation. This text was about an ape that was taught American sign language. While reading this text I found out that people argue with the teacher of this ape of whether Koko actually understands sign language. What I found interesting was the fact that apes have so many similarities to human.
