Cabaret 2014- Poem and Recount.

Poem:

the podium was staring at me,

the script in the big book

that only I could see.

The words began pouring out of my mouth,

trying to be the great narrator

everyone thought I could be.

I don’t know if I was,

if I read the words right,

but only I could see the script

in the concert of the night.

 

I rushed to my position,

backstage to the wings,

and everyone around me

could feel the tension.

We started singing,

the music ringing

in my ears,

and then I knew that this was it,

Cabaret 2014.

 

 Recount:

On Tuesday 28th of October 2014, Moonee Ponds Primary School walked to the Clocktower Centre for the 5/6′s last cabaret at this school, Almost Alice.

We had two shows, the Matinee and the Evening performance. I arrived at 5:40 for a 7 o’clock start. We got our hair and makeup done by Jess, Esther’s sister Anya and Anya’s friend. When I had finished I went downstairs to wait in the wings because I was the narrator.

Finally it started!The theatre was packed, not one seat empty. I walked out to the podium and began my story before 5/6 B’s performance- Alice in the Sky with Diamonds.

This repeated for the entire show- me, item, me, item, me, item- with Alice, the Cheshire Cat, Alice’s sister, the Mouse and the Rabbit talking occasionally. My favourite items were the preps, 5/6 C- ugly heart, and, of course, ours! No, I’m only joking. But we did a mash-up of ‘I’m Ready’ by AJR, ‘Heart and Soul’ by Built by Titan, and ‘Magic’ by B.o.B- which was really fun to dance to!

The ‘surprise item’ by the  was ‘Live Louder’ by Nathaniel. It was very exciting to watch!

But unfortunately it had to end. I went out on the stage and said my last line before our finale, ‘Happy’ by Pharell Williams!

Well, that was it, my last ever cabaret at MPPS, and I’m sure I won’t forget it anytime soon.

Mathsmate~ Term 4, sheet 6

Problem 24: Fill in the missing digots in the multiplication.

Predict: I think that I will have to use multiplication in this problem.

Clarify: I have no words, sentences or phrases to clarify.

Find the big question: what are the missing digits?

Solve: first I worked out what 6×3 is. The answer is 18, So I write an eight and carry the one. Now I have to work out what 3x? is, remembering that I have an extra one to add on, and it must equal something with a three in the ones column.

I already know that 3×4=12, and if I add a one, it would be 13! Perfect! So I write down a 4 in between the 2 and 6. Then I carry the one from the thirteen.

Now all I have to do is work out what 2×3 is, and I already know that is 6, plus the 1=7.

THE ANSWER IS:

Summary: The mathematicians toolbox strategy I used in this sum was use my prior knowledge.

Maths Mate~ Term 4, Sheet 5.

problem 22: which deal costs less per gram?

A) $5 for 500 g

B) $3 for 250 g.

predict: I predict that I will have to use multiplication in this sum.

clarify: I have no words, sentences or phrases to clarify.

find the big question: which costs less?

solve: this problem is fairly simple to solve.

first of all, I know that if you double 250 it equals 500.

but if you double $3  it doesn’t equal $5, it equals $6.

so, I’m thinking that A is the better deal, but to double check-

$5 for $500 g means $10 per 100 g.

but if it was $10 per grab for B, there would have to be 300 g, which is more that 250.

THE ANSWER IS A).

summary: the mathematicians toolbox strategy I used in this sum was use my prior knowledge.

maths mate: term 4, sheet 4.

problem 22:  fill in the missing number. 36 / ? = 4.

predict: I predict that I will need to use multiplication in this sum.

clarfiy: I have no words, sentences or phrases to clarify.

find the big questions: what is the missing number?

solve:

FIRST WAY- the main step in this sum is to go through your 4 times tables.

4,8,12,16,20,24,28,32,26.

then I count how many fours it took in 36: 9.

SECOND WAY- the simplest way, but if you are not confident with your 4 times tables you will need to do the first way aswell.

what is 36/4?:9.

THE ANSWER IS 6.

summary: the mathematicians tool box strategy I used in this sum wa use my prior knowledge.

Maths Mate: term 4, week 3.

problem 24: a bookshop sold 200 books over the Internet in it’s first year of business. since then sales have doubled every year. what was the bookshops profit in the sixth year given the yearly profit formula below?

yearly profit= books sold x $2 – $1000

predict: I predict that I will have to use multiplication in the sum.

clarify: I have no words, sentences, or phrases to clarify.

find the big question: what was the profit?

solve:

first it said that the sales have doubled every year, and it has been running for 6 years. so, to make sure I did it correctly I went down in a list.

1- 200

2- 400

3- 800

4-1600

5-3200

6-6400.

next we times it by $2. which is: $12,800

now we have to take away $1000, which is $11,800!

the answer is $11,800

summary: the mathematicians toolbox strategy are used in this sum was break the problem into manageable parts.
