How I felt about doing this task

I think that I did well at this task after a few attempts. I shared some of my ideas with others and listened to other people too. When it didn't work you just need to start again and not go the same way as before so making mistakes always helps.

Maths Pickle: Ballast

This week we had to figure out and solve a maths task called Ballast. You get a picture of a boat and 5 little boxes with 5 numbers below them.

The first one on the picture is not able to be done.
The second one can be done though. You have the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. 
First you need to figure out which 2 numbers go in the boxes that are side by side. When you get those 2 numbers you need to multiply them. I put in 2 and 6. 2x6=12. With the other numbers you need to put them in the other boxes and add them up. So 3+4+5=12. The second one is now done.
You need to do the same method in the last one and then you are done.

Maths: Blotch

This week during maths we had to do an activity called Blotch.

In blotch you get a square with numbers in it and you need to pick a number and colour it in. You then need to colour in lightly with the same colour. Then for example if you choose number 12 you need to surround it and then count how many squares it took to surround it. Say it takes 8 squares then you need to colour in another 4 squares.


When you have the whole square filled out and the numbers evenly go into it then you are done. If the numbers don't evenly go into it then you have failed.
If you fail that is fine because you then know what numbers not to choose next time.

I think that I would choose the middle car. 
I like it because it looks sturdy and the type of car. It looks like it is able to drive over rough terrain and can get you where you want to safely. I didn't choose the other cars because people may want to steal them.

Whatever it takes
By Imagine Dragons
Falling too fast to prepare for this
Tripping in the world could be dangerous
Everybody circling, it's vulturous
Negative, nepotist

Everybody waiting for the fall of man
Everybody praying for the end of times
Everybody hoping they could be the one
I was born to run, I was born for this

Whip, whip
Run me like a racehorse
Pull me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up

Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top I'm ready for
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

Always had a fear of being typical
Looking at my body feeling miserable
Always hanging on to the visual
I wanna be invisible

Looking at my years like a martyrdom
Everybody needs to be a part of 'em
Never be enough, I'm the prodigal son
I was born to run, I was born for this

Whip, whip
Run me like a racehorse
Pull me like a ripcord
Break me down and build me up
I wanna be the slip, slip
Word upon your lip, lip
Letter that you rip, rip
Break me down and build me up

Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top, I'm ready for
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes

Hypocritical, egotistical
Don't wanna be the parenthetical, hypothetical
Working onto something that I'm proud of, out of the box
An epoxy to the world and the vision we've lost
I'm an apostrophe
I'm just a symbol to remind you that there's more to see
I'm just a product of the system, a catastrophe
And yet a masterpiece, and yet I'm half-diseased
And when I am deceased
At least I go down to the grave and die happily
Leave the body of my soul to be a part of me
I do what it takes

Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do whatever it takes
'Cause I love how it feels when I break the chains
Whatever it takes
You take me to the top, I'm ready for
Whatever it takes
'Cause I love the adrenaline in my veins
I do what it takes
