Maths - Tia and Tom Money ( Spend & Save )

Today we solved an algebra problem to calculate how much money would be spent and earned by 2 twins . Tom started of with 20$ and spent $2per day . Tia started with $0 and earned $2.50 per day . I used a table to help me calculate the day Tia would overlap Tom with money . We made links to statistics and chose a line graph to show our thinking . You can see clearly , that by Friday , Tia had more money than Tom . 

Thank your for reading ..

Whakatauki O Te Wiki

Today we had to do a presentation on Whakatauki (  Maori proverb ) . The proverb is " Ma Pango , Ma Whero , Ka Oti Ai Te Mahi " meaning : " With black and red the work will be complete " The words that we  thought / know that  relates to this Whakatauki is : Working together , Cooperation , Partcipation , Communication , Interacting and many more words that relates to it ..

To me, the key message in this whakatauki is :
Supporting others . Interact with others just to get to know them or get involve with the conversation .

You might hear someone use this whakatauki when :

You meet up with your family memebers or  friends and disscus how your going to get or going to do to help out getting the mahi ( work / task / job ) done ..

My own version of this whakatauki :

" Particatation and interacting can help you get this task / mahi / work / job done ..

Thank you  for reading ..
