Maths Revision⭐📱💯

For maths, we have maths revision! Here are my explanations of these problems, please correct me if I am wrong!

Tom had 36 boxes of oranges. Each box has 7 oranges in it. How many oranges does he have altogether.
36 x 7 =
30 x 7 = 210 + 6 x 7 = 42 = (210 + 42 = 252)
Susan makes 1 litre of juice with ⅕ of a Raro sachet. She needed to make 17 litres of juice. How many sachets does she need?
⅕ = 1L. 1 = 5L. 3=15L because 3 whole pkts = 15L(⅕ = 1L). 3 ⅖ sachets is needed.
Daniel walked 3.7 kilometres on Sunday and another 2.9 kilometres on Monday. How many kilometres did he walk?
3.7 + 2.9 = 6.6. 3 + 2 = 5, .7 + .9 = 1.6. 5 + 1.6 = 6.6
Joseph had 672 songs on his ipod then deleted some. He now has 388 songs left. How many songs did he delete?
672 - 388 = 284
600 - 300 = 300
72 - 88 (take 100 from the 300 to make 172 - 88) =84
200 + 84 = 284
Catarina took $58 dollars from her bank account. She now has $387. How much did she have in the beginning?
58 + 287 = 345
290 + 50 = 340 (58 - 3 because of the rounding 3)
340 + 5 = 345
Sina threw 40 shots in a basketball game. She got 20% of the shots in . How many did she get in the hoop?
8/40 = 2/10 = 20%/100. Which makes the answer 8!

25 x 4 = 100
Containers arrived at the wharf with 1500 kilograms of sugar. Pak n Save bought ⅕ of the sugar. How much did Pak n Save buy?
⅕ of 1500 kg = 300g
300g x 5 = 1500 kg
I ironed 5 shirts in 30 minutes. How long will it take me to iron 15 shirts?
5 shirts = 30mins
15 shirts = 90 (because 5 x 3 = 15 & 30 x 90)
On a hot day the temperature outside is 17 degrees. On a cold day it drops by 5 degrees. What is the temperature on a cold day?
12 degrees
17 - 5 = 12

Image result for algebra pattern
How many matchsticks do you need for the fifth picture?
What is the pattern?
6 = 1, 9 = 2, 12 = 3, 15 = 4, 18 = 5 (in threes)

23 x 3 = 69
½ of 23L = 11.5

Glenbrae School throwbacks!😭😪💖☮

From 5 to 13 years of age, I have spent an entire 8 years at Glenbrae School, it truly has been a privilege and I am quite certain I am going to make another post about this but moving on, I have learnt new things, developed new skills and so much more!

- I learnt how to properly strategize and structure my maths and from the age of 7, I was accelerating to new levels. I also learnt how to read and pronounce words, as well as spell them. For writing, at first I was terrific but I then realised I wasn't as good as it thought!
- I learnt how to act at certain times, how to talk respectfully, approach new learning areas and much more, for example, meeting new friends!

During my previous years at GBS and many to still come, we were introduced to technology, where we could take videos and photos. Here are a few images of some of my fellow lifelong friends that I have connected with! (in other words, major throwbacks!)

These photos are really unique to me because they represent friends, learning, care and much more!
My Friends//Best friends//Classmates from the start (8 years ago) (I like/will miss them all dearly)
Girls - Maara😁Cherise😁Angelica😁Shannon😁 & more🔽
Boys - Fineasi😁Alfred😁Inoke😁Salesi😁Stephen😁Tamati😁 & more🔽
Boys & Girls I have met throughout the years! (Who I like dearly & can't wait to develop new relationships with, which I basically already have!)

Process of Puberty Timeline�🕢�

I have created a timeline about Puberty to showcase my learning about puberty - I hope you enjoy and learn something new! I was not able to upload a PDF, so I added some screenshots of my timeline with the ideas sections to further my information about Puberty!

Describe what makes a good role model

A role model is a person who is admired, idolized and looked up to by others. Role models set good examples of values, behaviors, attitude associated with a specific role. A role model may be someone you know already, or someone you’ve never met, such as a celebrity, who portrays many traits that make them a role model. Common role models are teachers, other educators, actors, singers, athletes and community figures such as policemen or firefighters.

Role models have to demonstrate confidence and leadership which is a major step towards teaching their devotees. Role models also have to stay constructive while teaching how to demonstrate confidence and leadership. Most people admire those who project confidence and leadership. You don’t want a role model who is disheartened or tries to discourage you. Everyone likes a positive and completely certain role model that is satisfied with their accomplishments and acknowledges their skills as well as achievements without being arrogant. They also display leadership, and guidance but continues to strive for generous and excelling objectives. Lack of confidence and leadership results in opportunities not being taken because you haven’t shown your true potential in confidence areas nor leadership. When demonstrating confidence and leadership we become more beneficial for ourselves and our enthusiasts that take our advice and follow our paths to become role models. In addition to ‘what makes a good role model’ is communication and interaction, this is essential.

As you may not know, most role models attempt to help others in different circumstances or situations but the main key to helping is communication and interaction. How are you supposed to learn from someone who has a deficiency for communication? Communication and interaction are used to portray learning in understandable ways and you need to be able to understand to communicate well with others. When interacting with others you extend your knowledge with the communication from your partner and you are able to interpret interaction. The clearest and uncomplicated way to being a heroic role model is how well an individual can show these. So when deciding whom your role model may be, look at their qualities, characteristics and what makes them an exceptional role model. Also make sure they can connect well with others and also collaborates their advice in a good conduct.

Being unique and flawsome is a step of becoming a phenomenal role model. To be flawsome, one has to embrace their flaws and know their awesome regardless. Role models certainly have to stay true to themselves to overcome numerous obstacles, sometimes resulting in accepting ridicules. People certainly want role models who don’t pretend to be someone they aren’t and won’t be fake, to please or impress others. Role models influence others with a positive, buoyant outlook on life. It’s very unlikely that people would want to emulate a despondent individual. Be yourself, and people would prefer to emulate you instead, an eager and enthusiastic leader. Role models need to be themselves most importantly to grab a good kind of attention to behold a positive image of themselves. Role models have unique traits which most people would want to have, making them stand out from the rest and more appealing. It’s important to be unique to influence admirers to be a one of a kind human being.

In order for role models to be dominant and influential, they must show respect to others. People of all ages appreciate being treated with respect and extol those who treat them and others that way. Role models who manifest benevolence and selflessness, unbiased view of others different from themselves, will guarantee them admiration from others. You may have impressive traits that are greater than rest, but whether you choose to show respect or not, it immediately indicates people what your true nature is. It is clear that people see whether you're not showing any gratitude or wanting to be ahead of others. Not only will respect be shown, but respect will be given back in the process. It’s a win-win situation. At the end of the day, a role model's reputation is judged by the respect shown.

Behaviour and attitude are also vital when you’re a role model when you're projecting your behavior and attitude to the people that look up to you. If you ever show an inadequate quality of behavior by not paying attention, quibbling a lot, debating or backchat that definitely won't get you anywhere near a role model position. When you have a certain set of abilities, accommodate it to suit your behavior and attitude. All role models have different qualities and abilities but also different attitudes and behavior. We all know that behaviors disclose to expressions of feelings and appearances of body languages but attitudes relates to a minds predisposition. Having an exquisite behavior and all of these combined, leads to a remarkable, exceptional, admirable and someone worth imitating -  a role model! Finally, to conclude behavior and attitude, role models are respectful and display what they think behavior and attitude means. If you would like to be a role model, look up to the person that you idolize and duplicate them, but in your own way! “Treat other individuals the way you would like to be treated.”

Most role models like to go the extra mile, working harder, finding time for good causes outside of work such as raising money for charities, fundraising for important events, saving lives and helping people in general. This gives them an extra credit, creating a humble as well as a deferential image for themselves. Commitment to good causes implies that they are a devoted person. A role model shows and encourages motivation and dedication simultaneously. This shows that they are good-natured beings with good intentions for themselves and others. Their act of kindness impacts others as it influences them to try new things and help out more often, encouraging others that little actions can cause a big difference.

Role models are the sun that we are blessed with everyday, they are looked up to by admirers, adherents, and supporters. When I say role models, whoever each individual may be, shows unique qualities, how to behave towards one another, has confidence and  interacts well with other. They also  show the correct behavior as well as attitude and the most valuable and substantial one, respect! Acknowledge what role models do and the sacrifices they make to project what makes a good role model.

This writing here was collaborated with Luisa (click here to visit her blog), it was quite complicated and challenging for me [ as I am not quite good at writing] but I ended up striving for the best! Luisa had done an impeccable job on her writing & it was a good opportunity to work with her to seek some help.
