Maths Home Learning 11.3.13

Can I find the median, mode and mean of a set of data?

Median = middle value

Mode = most common

Mean = average (use a calculator to add up the values in your set of data, and divide by the amount of values to find the mean)

e.g.

T Ball Hits: 2m, 4m, 4m, 8m, 12m

Median: 4m

Mode: 4m

Mean: 5.6m

2m + 4m + 4m + 8m + 12m = 28m

28m divided by 5 = 5.6m

The activity we used to practise in class today:

http://www.sciencekids.co.nz/gamesactivities/math/meanmedianmode.html

Online calculator:

For your home learning tonight find the median, mode and mean  of this set of T Ball data (data means information). Make sure you put the values in order first.

  1. Strike Outs (per game): 4, 4, 5, 0, 2
  2. Caught Balls (per game): 7, 5, 0, 3, 5
  3. Field Throws: 5m, 5m, 7m, 20m, 35m
  4. Game Times: 20 min, 20 min, 16 min, 14min, 15 min
  5. Big Hitters: 40m, 32m, 33m, 45m, 29m, 33m, 12m

If you have any extra time play the multiplication game we were playing in class today:

Kidspeak!

Who wants to be on TV? Who wants to tell Thailand what they think about issues that are important to children? You?

If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you. A Thai TV company has asked if Bangkok Patana would like to be involved in a breakfast programme during which six Year 5 children will be filmed giving their opinions (what they think) on topics like friends, pocket money, the environment etc. Your English will then be translated into Thai (not by you!). The aim is to help people watching learn English.

It will be short (about two minutes) so you will not have to do lots of talking and the teachers will help you prepare. At the moment we would just like to know if you would like to be considered for this job. If you think this is something you would like to do, please show your parents this blog post and talk to them about it at home. The children that are chosen to be filmed will need their parents’ permission to take part.

You need to let me know on Thursday if you would like to take part.

     Lets make a .....

On Thursday you can come into school dressed as a favourite book character. If you have a book at home with your character in it, bring it in please. You could look for a paragraph in the book that describes your character ready to share it with us on Thursday. For your home learning tonight please (in your red books)…….

Create a ‘pen portrait’ of your book day character. Write down these details:

Name:

Age:

Family:

Job:

Personality traits:

Now write a paragraph that describes your character using the technique of show not tell.

You can draw or include a printed picture of your character as well if you would like.
