Description: Every year something called Mathex is held at the Awapuni race course, Mathex is when 50 of the top mathmetions in the Manawatu get into groups of four organized by the math teacher of each school James the deputy principal organized our teams there were two year five teams, two year six teams and the reserves I was a year six reserve. There are two parts the practical where you have a sheet of questions that you need to answer in 15 minutes then there's the quick fire you get one question at a time once you have completed on the runner hands it in you get 3 chances before you automatically move on you have 15 minutes for this part as well. One of the year six teams finished 20th and the other team finished 39th, one of the year five teams finished 2nd and the other team finished 21st. James gave us a number of tests to decide how was going to go, he looked at how we worked in a team and our ability to solve problems. We practiced every day till it was time to compete, we did lots of quick fire maths and practical here is an example question.
Feedback\Feedforward: Tabitha I think you did a good job at practices and even though you were a reserve you keep trying and strived for excellence. I think you have improved so much in your maths ring I'm Mathex like me! Next time maybe you could have practiced more at home. Go Tabs! -Zara
Evaluation: Thanks for the feedback Zara, next time I could try harder in practices and be in an actual Mathex team instead of just being a reserve, but I have learnt a lot over the past 3 weeks and I think that I have improved maths skills and teamwork skills.

Description: Every Monday instead of doing reading and maths we do discovery time, this is time too try new things and be creative in what you create, last Monday I was making pompoms on my fingers then we had an idea to make a gigantic pompom with two otimons and string it didn't work but now we know that it doesn't work, and at least we tried.
