### Show, Don't Tell

For writing I am researching about Yohan Blake. This terms theme is "Move ya body" and my class has been doing show don't tell this week. 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.

### Statistics

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 Dogs IIIII IIIII Cats IIIII IIIII II Fish IIII Rabbits II
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

 Score Frequency 1 4 2 3 5 8 Total 15

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
2

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 Dogs IIIII IIIII Cats IIIII II Fish IIII Rabbits IIIII III Hamsters II
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

### Multiplying Decimals

'
In this activity we are learning about multiplying whole numbers. For this presentation I had some help from my buddy Myztique. It was pretty tricky to do the word problems, but we just kept on going and did our work.
