Do You Know What a Polygon is?

A challenging shape caught our attention as we were in our way to discovering what a Polygon is. The only thing that was in my head was "It is a 90 degree shape. To my surprise a Polygon is defined as a geometric object with many sided points called vertices. A polygon has an equal side of lengths and has the same amount of points on the ends. This Geometric object was a really interesting one because I learned that a Polygon wasn't a shape even though it sounds like a shape. The picture on the left side was an example that I tried to make with a triangle. We cut out out different parts of the triangle and tried to find out the interiors of the Triangle!!!! We learned that when we put the 3 parts that were cut out together, it added up to a 180 degree shape!

Another Win For The WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!!

The warriors were looking to up set the Knights 2 times in a row at New Castle. It wasn't a half that the warriors were expecting in the first half but in the second half, just amazing work!!! James Maloney stormed through the defence with the help of Feleti Mateo's offloading help. The score was at 18-16 and the warriors were back in front. Many warriors were experienced in maintaining their advantage and that's what they did. Feleti Mateo had a touch with the ball and once again James Maloney excelled through the defence line once again and took the warriors up to 24 with a converted try of his own. The Knights were down 24-16 and the warriors found themselves with another penalty with James Maloney converting a penalty goal. Krisnan Inu had a crack at the knights and Kevin Locke ended the game and booted the ball out!!!!! The warriors made history and made a 2nd win in a row against the knights 25-16!! The warriors are heading back home and yet conceding another hard game against Isaac Luke's team, The South Sydney Rabbitohs.GO THE WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Translation-Geometry

This term in Maths, we have been learning about Translation in Geometry. Translation means to move the object with out rotating it or resizing it or re-drawing the object. Translation is all about moving things. In this example, we had to make a grid to show what Translation means. I made the object(above) move 2 down and 2 across. It took some time to figure out how to make a grid on Google docs drawing, but in the end I found out!

I hope that next time, we can do another one!!!!
