Presentations 2018

Today was a special day for team five. We are performing the dances we have been practising for about four weeks, first we had to get dressed. My group was wearing a lavalava and a sei (which is a flower). Our performance was a Samoan maulu’ulu, in my group I was blessed with these two talented Samoans who is Petesa and Adrienne.

First Mr Wiseman had a number generator to see what class, was going to perform first. It landed on Room 5 then it was Room 1, Room 2, Then my class ROOM 3!! My group was performing 3rd to last. When we performed I was so nervous I was trying to smile but my stomach kept on rumbling.

After we performed I was so relieved I just wanted to run off the stage but first I bowed and walked off gracefully because it was a cultural dance. When we got off the stage room 3 needed one more performances by Tevita, Javan, and Leo. After their performance it was time for Room 4.

When we finished all of our performances from Team 5 we had to say Thank you to Team 3 for taking their time to watch us perform.

My physical activity is Samoan Ma ulu'ulu in my group I have Petesa, Adrienne, and myself. We learnt this dance in over 2-4 weeks and it was really challenging for me because I am not Samoan. When we perform next week I am going to be very nervous and shy.

For this weeks activity we got introduced to statistics but a few of us already knew what statistics was all about. I was working with a buddy who is Myztique and we figured out a lot of complicated equations of different kinds of graphs. 

M.M.M - Mean, Mode, Median

Statistics                                                           name: Myztique and Anna

WALT- Identify the mean, median and mode within a collection of data

Activity One
Answer the questions in a different colour

The definition of the mean in a statistical investigation is commonly referred to as the average. It is the total of all the data divided by the amount of data shown.
For example: if we have this range of data 3,5,7,1,2,3,6,8

3+5+7+1+2+3+6+5  = 32  = 4
             8         8

  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
3+7+8 +4+2+6+5+4+3+9 = 51 ➗ 10 = 5 r 1
           Find the mean in the set of numbers
4+12+5+6+11+9+5 = 52  ➗ 7 =  7 r 3
  1. Find the mean in this tally chart
Pets owned by students
Number of students
  10 + 12 + 4 + 2 = 28 ➗ 4 =  7

  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
24+12+16+18 = 70 ➗ 4 = 17 r 2
  1. Find the mean in this set of numbers
5+9+12+4+10+7= 47 ➗ 6 = 7 r 5
  1. CHALLENGE QUESTION: Find the mean within this data, use the frequency table to help you
1+5+5+2+1+2+5+5+5+5+1+2+1+5+5 = 50 ➗ 15 = 3 r 5


Activity Two
Answer the questions in a different colour

The definition of the median is the middle number within a set of numbers that have been put in order from size (biggest to smallest or smallest to biggest)
For example: 2,6,4,1,9 = 1,2,4,6,9 and the middle number is 4.
BUT say if there is more than one middle number… the median is found by taking the number midway between the middle pair of numbers:
3,6,1,4,9,2 = 1,2,3,4,6,9 → 3 + 4 = 3.5

Find the median in these sets of numbers

  1. 10,14,17,12,19,11,16
10,11,12,14,16,17,19 - the middle number is 14

  1. 34,42,37,31,40  
31, 34,37,40,42 - the middle number is 37

  1. 101, 167,138,124,198,149
101, 124, 138,149, 167, 198 - the middle number is 143.5

  1. 54, 58,52,57,53,60
53,53,54,57,58,60 - the middle number is 55.5

  1. 1001, 1094, 1023, 1065, 1038, 1027, 1042
1001, 1023, 1027, 1038, 1042, 1065, 1094 - the middle number is 1038

  1. Find the median within this tally chart

Number of students
2 ,4, 7, 8 , 10 = 7

Activity Three
The mode is the most frequent number in a set of data. The number that occurs most often.
For example: In a set of numbers 3, 7, 8, 4, 2, 6, 5, 4, 3, 9 there is two modes, 3 and 4 because they appear twice in the data set.
Note- There can either be 0, 1 or 2 modes. If there are 3 or more numbers occur the same number of times, there is no mode.

Find the mode in these sets of numbers

  1. 2, 1, 5, 3, 7, 8, 5, 3 ,9 = 3 and 5
  2. 1, 5, 3, 2, 9 ,4, 1, 6, 8, 0 = 1
  3. 23, 45, 78, 12, 45, 67, 32, 46, 93, 12 = 12 and 45
  4. 101, 121, 123, 145, 167, 121, 139, 145, 176 = 121 and 145
  5. 394, 273, 219, 294, 183, 291, 273, 288, 271 = 273
