I start to tremble, Is everybody safe?I call out to silence, It's an earthquake.I find shelter and everybody's safe We hug and embrace,It's an earthquake. He plunders my belly, and pierces my skin. But adorns me with riches, that He finds from within. A gift of thorny crowns A demonstration of His claim.But if my bones resist- you die.

cat and tins

A gang of cunning cats came across an abandoned cat food truck.They made 48 cat food.We don’t know how many cunning cats there are,but we know that they share their loot equally.

How many tins might each cat have?                                    1 X 48 = 48

  24X2=48                                                                                48 groups of 1 = 48
2 groups of 24                                                                                48 X 1 = 48                                          
24 groups of 2 = 48
2X24=48

How many tins might each cat have?
4 cats and 12 tins

4X12=48
4 groups of 12 = 48
3X12=48
12 groups of 4 = 48

How many tins might each cat have?

6X8=48
6 groups of 8 = 48
8X6=48
8 groups of 6 = 48


we were doing time tables and groups of what ever for math with mrs sharmas friend.

symmerty

Today we learnt about symmetry.

Symmetry is where a shape or object is mirrored or the two parts are the same.

We used lots of different shapes and we cut the out and folded them in half (vertically and horizontally) to see if the two sides were the same. 

Then we sorted the shapes into categories - vertically symmetrical, horizontally symmetrical, and asymmetrical. We had to agree or disagree with the other groups if we thought that shape was vertically symmetrical, horizontally symmetrical or it wasn't symmetrical at all. 

Asymmetrical means when it isn't symmetrical, the two parts are not the same.
