Stats Sharp shooting

Statistics

WALT: show kotahitanga
Success Criteria:
Use photos to share our camp experiences
Use text to explain the kotahitanga

WALT calculate the mean, median, mode and range for a set of data.
TASK Elly and Troy want to find out once and for all:
  • which Activity Group has the overall best score, (mean)
  • which Activity Group has the highest middle number, (median)
  • what score was the most common, (mode)
  • which activity group has the highest range. (range)  
In everyday life people collect data to look for trends and make decisions. In order to analyse the information, we need to understand the different ways to lOOK at the data.
Success Criteria you will know you are successful when:
  • calculate the mean by adding up all the data (9 + 4 + 4 + 5 + 8 = 30) then divide the total by how many numbers there were (9, 4, 4, 5, 8 = 5 numbers so 30 ÷ 5 = 6).
  • calculate the median by ordering all numbers from smallest to biggest then selecting the middle number (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 5 is the middle number). If there are 6 numbers e.g. 4, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, then the median is halfway = 5.5.
  • calculate the mode by identifying which number occurs most often (4, 4, 5, 8, 9 = 4 because there are two of them). You can have more than one mode.
  • calculate the range by finding the difference between the highest and lowest numbers (9 - 4 = 5).
My 3 shot scores were 27 34 46 which make my total 107

The median of my score is 34

The mean of my score is 33

The range of my score is 27 and 46


My Group scores are:

How might Auggie be an inspiration to others?
WALT: Make Infrences  to better understand the authors message
SC: Use clues from the story to make connections beyond the text


People can imagine being in Auggie's situation and realise how lucky they are.

People can look at him and see how he faced the world and survived
He went through a lot and that is what people will look up to

Auggie stood up to quite a few bullies

But I'm kind of used to how I look by now. I know how to pretend I don't see the faces people make.

Via doesn't see me as ordinary. She says she does, but if I were ordinary,she wouldn't feel like she has to protect me as much.   

I think the only person who realizes how ordinary I am is me.

It is because of all the surgeries I've had, 27 since I was born.


I stood in front of the class and everyone looked down when  I walked back to my desk.

My name is August I said louder forcing my head up

Justin's book part is written in lower case with bad punctuation The way the text Is written along with his fiddle, serve as symbols to let us know he isn't your typical school boy. Draw a symbol  that could represent you or your life! Write sentences to explain the symbolism.
 

This task was kind of hard  because I could not think of any symbols that represented me so my mum brought up some images of symbols then started reminding me of what I love in the end it turned out great

On the first day of school, Ms. Petosa asked each student to share two things you want other people  to know about you what things did August share and why do you think he chose those? Then share two things people might not know about you. Display this on our wonder wall anonymously so we can try and guess who you are!

Walt use various sources of information to better understand the authors message.
SC:  use clues from the story or make connections beyond the text.
He stood up shyly and kept his head down

August said:
"My Name is August I have a sister named Via and a dog named daisy"

Because when you talk people look at you... He doesn't like to be stared that much, so he decided to make his Introduction quite small and also maybe he talked about his dog and sister because nobody would ask any questions about himself
I went back to that part in the book.  I read the text to get the answers to the questions.  I imagined myself as August and standing up in front of people that you haven't met before. I think that's just hard anyway without having something wrong with your face. So for August if he had a choice I think he would not of got up.
