Term 2 Book Review

the book is about a boy cold Nate and he is trying to get a girl cold Jenna to like him but she like someone else and his two best friends try helping him teddy and Francis. One of my favorite part was when Nate got mad at teddy because Jenna said hi to him but not to Nate. i feel this is a good book because its easy to read and funny.
I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions

Please complete these two problems. You will need to explain how you got the answer.

Question 1
In our household, there are twice as many cats as humans, with sixty legs in total.

How many cats are there to be fed?
Because I kept multiplying it till I got 12 which was 12 x 4 = 48 because cats have 4 legs and half of 12 is 6 that is the amount of human because 6 x 2 = 12 12 + 48 = 60.

Question 2
Three men run a business together.
The proportion of the profit they each get at the end of the month is based on the proportion of the funds they have invested in the business.
The April profit is shared out so that All gets one third, Bob gets one half and Chuck gets one sixth.
In May, Des joins the group, investing half as much as Bob invested.
What share of the profit can Des expect to get?
¼ because there are 4 people and she would expect get ¼

Careers Education C.V. Writing

In CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.

A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have,  rather than our work history.

Here is a link to our online Modelling Book that shows the process we have followed.

Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:

  1. They should not be any spelling mistakes

  1. They have to be even spaces

In writing I have been learning to use basic punctuation that is mostly correct;
- use capital letters, full stops and commas,
- use question marks and exclamation marks,
- use apostrophes,
- use speech marks

I have been especially focussing on using exclamation marks and commas. I have highlighted these in green where I have used them as well as other punctuation that I changed because it was used incorrectly. Here is a piece of my writing that shows this.
