Back in term 2 we related decimal numbers to fractions and even percentages. We compared them by placing them on a number line too. Today students represented them by using base 10 blocks we are all familiar with. The problem with base 10 MAB blocks is that they only go as small as one unit. Which is equal to a centi-cube. so what do we do?
We re name the ones we have. Students investigated and renamed one thousand block as the new unit (or ones), the old hundred block is now a tenth 1/10, the old ten stick is now a hundredth 1/100 and the old unit cube is now a thousandth 1/1000.
Students have begun inquiring on various Liturgical seasons and times in the church year. Here are some responses from a class discussion and the corresponding learning task students will do…..

What chance do you think you have of guessing someone’s iphone pass code?
what if it had 4 digits?
what if it had 6 digits?
Here is one student’s analysis and method of solving this problem. Remember its all about the possibilities……
Today we had an amazing play session using provocations to do with forces (moving objects) and gravity (falling objects), here is what we did and found out!…
Students are given another learning tool to explore theoretical probability and test this by experimenting. This time looking at spinners with 3,4,5 or 6 parts- the choice was up to the students. Stray tuned for some student samples and some amazing discoveries.
