Reading Evidence


Walt: find direct or inferred evidence in the text to support a character trait for a particular character in the story .

I can identify if the evidence is direct or inferred.

My next step would be to use the character traits and evidence to find the purpose of a character in a text.

Maths evidence

W.A.L.T : find fraction of a set using multiplication and division .

Question: Arianna has 32 lollies and shares them with her friends
Dory gets 3/8 of the 32 lollies
Ellen gets 4/8 of the 32 lollies
how many does Arianna get ?

Working Out

Dory gets  3/8 of 32
you can do this by dividing the denominator by the set  and then multiplying by the numerator = 12 lollies

 Ellen gets 4/8 of 32
32 divided by 8= 4
Therefore Ellen gets 16  lollies

1/8 of 32=4 lollies

so now we have to check that we are right
16+4+12=32 lollies

so Arianna gets only 4 lollies .


I was learning to find fractions of a set using multiplication and division . 

I was able to find the fractions of a set easily because I was already taught this.

Next time I will choose more complected problems to solve.
