What were I Trying to Find Out?
In this unit, there were lots of things that you could inquire about such as figuring out how much water can fit in your water bottle or be a huge thinker and solve how many dices can fill up the space of a soccer field. I and my partner, Nathan decided to find out if he was a rectangle, how many Nathans can fit in this classroom without leaving even one single gap.
What did I Discover?
After several calculations, we found out that if Nathan is a rectangle, --- Nathan can fit in the studio 5A classroom without leaving any gaps because the length, width and the height of the classroom is ---, so the volume would be ---. Furthermore, the volume of Nathan is --- having the length, width and height of ---, --- and ---. That means you can fit --- ÷ --- = --- Nathan can fit in this studio.
What Surprised Me?
Something that surprised me was that I thought Nathan had a volume at least higher than 10, but as his width, and his height is a decimal, as I multiply those numbers to find out the volume, the answer was 0.04...
What were I Good at?
I think I the thing I was good at was figuring out the precise answer because I used various math skills which I learned to figure out the volume, capacity and etc... of something. For example, this classroom is a trapezoid shaped room, so I found out the volume by figuring out the area of the trapezoid first and then, multiplied the height to earn the volume.
What do I need to still Practice?
I think I still need to practice measuring the area or the volume of something by exactly knowing the unit of the measuring equipment because when we were measuring this classroom, we thought the unit shown in the measuring tape was all formed of feet. However, as we found
out that it wasn't, we needed to measure the entire classroom over and over again. Approximately 3 times.
What do I want to know now?
Now, I want to know how much A4 papers can fit in this classroom because I thought it would be interesting to find out how much of these flat things can fill up the space of the entire classroom and how much trees would be wasted to do that. For example, in my estimate, I think at least 1 million papers can fit in this classroom which is a waste of approximately 5,000 trees. If my statement is true, that would be an interesting fact.
