GEGNZ - Student Summit 2017

Today the Year 7 & 8 Extension group went to Ormiston Junior College for the GEGNZ Student Summit 2017. We went arrived in two groups which were P.E.N.N Team and The Scratch Team. Registration was the first place we went and were handed lanyards to put on.
( PS: I was apart of the PENN Team)

The GEGNZ Student Summit was attended by over 400 students from : Ormiston Primary, Ormiston College, Tamaki College, Stonefields School, Bucklands Beach School and many other schools. We went to many presentations and workshops where taught different things from different schools.

The P.E.N.N Team was the first to go back after the introduction in the Auditorium. Two groups of schools came to our Presentation were Holy Cross and Ormiston Primary School. After presenting, We let the school make their own NewsTo be honest when we were trying to pick workshops to go to, it was tough because most of the workshops required ipads which didn't have.

To Reflect upon the day, I have to say it was pretty fascinating seeing how technology has improved and has become part of our daily lives. What I learned from the trip to GEGNZ was how to use a program called Teleorgami. It's a app where you can record yourself saying something, and it has a avatar replaying.

Hundreds in Numbers up to 100, 000

 This week in for Maths, My Maths group is learning to identify groups of hundred in numbers up to 100,000. In the presentation, our task was to figure out how many hundred dollar notes would it take to make a random amount of money. For an Example : The amount of money is $4,500, so my job would be to learn what amount or how many $100 notes would be in $4,500.

Introduction to Measurement

 This week in my Maths Class, we were introduced to Measurement. First we were introduced to Standard and Non-Standard Measuring tool. Standard is what you would call a normal measuring tool. For an example: If your teacher were to ask you to pick a Standard Measuring tool out of a Ruler and Book, you would pick the Ruler because a Ruler is a Standard Measuring tool. Non-Standard is what you would call something that you would use instead of a Standard Measuring tool. A Non-Standard measuring tool is anything that you can use to measure.
