This presentation is about some athletes and we got to pick an athlete to write about and my athlete was Yohan Blake the reason why I picked him was because we couldn't pick Usain Bolt cause my teacher knew that we would know a lot of information about Usain Bolt.

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

Pets owned by students
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

Decimals with my group

 WALT: Work collaboratively to solve word problems

My group and I were learning about decimals, in my group was : Ana, Myztique, Bryana, Uasi, and of course myself. We had to read the word problem and solve it Keep on reading to find out more!!

For the first question was 4.26 + 7.54 + 3.90 = 15.7, the first thing we did was

 4.26 + 7.54 = 11.8 
then 11.8 + 3.90 = 15.7 so the answer is 15.7

The second question was 30.77 + 94.65 = 125.32 

         so the answer is 125.32
Next is the third question which was
9639.66 + 2332.55 - 1780.30 = 10191.91, First we added 9639.66 + 2332.55 = 11872.31 then we minus 11972.31 - 780.40 = 10191.91

Thanks for reading my blog post about decimals. Hope you enjoyed learning with me.

Our First Swimming Lesson


Today I learnt how to swim if I didn't have a swimming lesson today then one day I would be stuck in a situation in the middle of the sea and I would probably drown. Today at the swimming lesson we had to learn how to do a perfect backstroke and at the end we swam to end of the pool which free styling. When I went swimming I got so tired fast because I haven't swam in a long time. Our instructors name was Monique she was very kind to us.
