Reflection of Maths so far..

L: What did I learn?

So far in maths I've explored more around the 'Order of Operations' and 'Bedmas' I also managed to be able to understand how to do Bedmas in more complicated equations.

A: What did people do to help me learn?

I think that getting some help from my friends next to me helped because I'd get stuck on my bedmas and how I supposed to order the equation. It also helped with them practising our basic facts so we could have an easier understanding of our work.

N: What do I want to learn next?

I'd like to learn more about algebra. I think I'm fairly okay with my algebra but I'd like to eplore that subject a bit more.

D: What would I like to do differently?

I would like to change the work given to us through education perfect so it can be easier to finish on time. I think they are too complicated for a timed question.

Make sure you know when to say no!

This Morning Mr Andrew Patterson came in with Ex-student Raenan. Mr Patterson brought Raenan in to share with us his experience of the past 4 year through Tamaki College. They also shared us a video of a year 12 boy from Manurewa High school, Dwight. Dwights background may shock you from what you would see today. Raenan shared with us that if you just keep your mind on your work and 'Go Hard' you will earn great success. Mr Patterson Interviewed Raenan at the start of his visit.

Raenan shared with us some of his own motivational references like 'Make the most of your opportunities' and 'Make sure you know when to say no' and lastly 'Go hard to have the best outcome'.  Mr Patterson also shared a video of Dwight sharing a speech only last week. Even though his father was a member of the Mongrel mob and Dwight was around violence from a young age, he still succeeded. A quote from Dwight was 'Change won't happen unless you change it yourself'.  I found that both Dwight and Raenan are inspirational young men. My goal is to be an inspirational student for the Pt England intermediate kids in 2021(when I'm in year twelve).
