Student Led Conference Reflection

The thing I enjoyed most about my SLC was Sharing All of my reading Because I have made quite a bit of progress.

What went well and why, Sharing my reading went well because I was able to share a lot of my reading.

What were the challenges you faced when preparing and presenting your SLC, the challenges I faced in my student led conference was the amount of time I had to share my work.

What changes would you make for next time and why, I would use my timebetter because I didn't have enough time to finish my student led conference.

Visual Arts

Visual Art: WALT: Apply knowledge about shapes and patterns derived from nature into an original artwork

For Visual Art the SOLO level I achieved was Extended Abstract because I was able to use all of the different techniques and Use different colours that match with the other colours.
The techniques I used in my art work to achieve this level were Moving Water colours, Shading and Glazing.

Here is a photo of my art work

My next step in visual art is to use a different range of Techniques and Skills. I want to use the skill of shading a bit more and use the skills of Moving water colours and Glazing more.

Reason with Linear Proportions

WALT - Reason with Linear Proportions

Here is an example of some of the question that we had to answer.
These questions are for the activities called Percent of change and Compare Percents of Numbers.

This question is for the activity Percent of change.
What is the percent of decrease from 600,000 to 300,000?

Write your answer using a percent sign (%).

Here is how I worked it out

I started by working out the difference of the two numbers which is 300,000 and then you divide the number by the first number (when you divide you have to use the first number) so it would be 300,000 Divided by 600,000 and then you times it by 100 and then you will get your answer.

Here is an example of a question

Here is some of my progress

This question is for the activity Compare Percents of Numbers.
This is how I worked it out

Firstly I used calculator to help me to work out all of the calculations and then what I did was I calculated 30x30%= 9 and then I did 9 Divided by 100 which = 0.09 and then that is the answer.
