Matariki / Moon Phases



Walt : accurately identify and organise the phases of the moon.

I was able to identify and organise the phases of the moon by putting the moon pictures and name them correctly.
I learned that the Waxing Crescent and Waxing Gibbous is on the left side for the southern hemisphere and the Waning Crescent and the Waning Gibbous is on the right side. I also learned that, if you look at the moon at the northern hemisphere, it is the opposite of what you will see in the southern hemisphere.
Matariki is related to the moon in a way but I forgot.
Next time I could try to look at the moon at night and try to figure out what the moon is, eg. Waxing Crescent, Waning Gibbous, First Quarter.

Statistics




Walt : display data on histogram, tally chart
Walt : interpret information from histograms and tally marks eg. medium, mode, range, mean



I was able to put the information from the class scores to the histogram.



  • The Mode for the first names were 8
  • The mode for the last names were 11
  • The Mode for the full names were 22

The mode means the most popular number/the most common number.
To get the mode for 2,2,3,4,7,5,3,8,9, first you have to put these numbers from least of greatest.
Like this, 2,2,3,3.4.5.7,8,9. Then you find the number that has came out the most. But in this situation, the are 2 modes. So the mode is 2 and 3. That's how you get the mode in math.


Next time I want to try something new and something challenging.
