No. of Articles

What we did.
Create - Mathematics. We are learning to plan and conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
- determining appropriate variables and data collection methods;
- gathering, sorting, and displaying multivariate category, and time series data to detect patterns, variations, relationships and trends;
- comparing distributions visually;
- communicating findings, using appropriate displays.

We will have met the success criteria when we
  • Develop an understanding of how to use a tally chart and a frequency table.
  • Use a spreadsheet to record our tally / frequency data.
  • Correctly develop a graph or chart using a spreadsheet programme. (Google Sheets)
Develop a clear statement based on our graphed data and share our learning on our learning blogs.The idea was to  design and make a graph that shows our data we collected.

My  graph

I found a pattern. Small, big, small, big. I think this is because there are bigger article that have more detail.  On the front and back of the newspaper there aren't as many as the middle because the front pages are the big news and the rest is like not so big news so it won’t have much detail.

What I would like to know is about the papers, why is some articals way bigger than others?

What is electricity?

What is electricity?

A bolt of lightning is a sudden, massive surge of electricity between the sky and the ground beneath us. The energy in a single lightning bolt can be enough to light 100 powerful lamps for a whole day or to make a couple of hundred thousand slices of toast! Thats a lot.

Electricity has played a big part of our past, but it could play a different role in our future, with many more buildings using their own electric power using solar panels and windmill

What is electricity?
Electricity is a type of energy that can build up in one single place or move from one place to another. When electricity gathers in one place it is known as static electricity (it does not move).Electricity Currents are flowing electricity.

Static electricity

If you rub things together then you will get static electricity. If you rub a balloon against your hair 20 or 30 times, you'll find the balloon sticks to you it may also stick to the roof and stay there. This happens because of a small amount of electricity. It is like a magnet in a way because the balloon sticks to something like on end of a magnet.

And electric circuit path way of wires or contusive mitteral that have electricity running through them when a battery is but in the the light bulb will glow.
