Solving Problems

This week and last week, we were solving some maths problems. The first problem was using three digit numbers I had to use lots of strategies to come up with the right answer.

The second problem was called ice-cream we had three sized cups/cones and three flavours. Again we had to out an interesting strategy, first I used initials and then secondly we used a tree diagram.

The third problem was to do with clothing, the question was On a holiday you took 3 pairs of shoes, 3 pairs of shorts, 4 tops and 2 hats. How many different outfits can you wear? I found out that the best strategy to use was the tree diagram, hopefuly I can use it again.

Creating Robots

IMG_0316Today in robotics we had to go in groups of two Ruby was my partner. We got an instructions book and copied the steps, Ruby and I found it hard at the start but when we had done the first steps it was easy.

When we had finished one side we had to copy that and then connect the other side and put in the charger to program our robot. Ruby and I were happy that we finished our robot in time to see it drive around the floor.

Design Electives

Today in design we went into groups for our electives. I chose robotics for my electives; we had to sort the tubs of Lego then we could look at cool Lego videos on youtube. In the next few weeks we can create animals and interesting things and then we have to program them with this big charger.
