I can find, select and use a range of texts for specific learning purposes in different tasks and learning areas of the curriculum.

WALT- I can find, select and use a range of texts for specific learning purposes in different tasks and learning areas of the curriculum.

For my “Evaluating Leaders” research I have been researching about who is a better leader between Barack Obama and Richie McCaw.


During this unit I have had to use a range of strategies to find the information I needed on Google. This include: Cross check, reference and link the information to my doc.


I have achieved this goal because I have cross checked and linked information to my doc.

My next step is to set a new reading goal.

Stem and Leaf- Maths

I can read and interpret a range of graphs



For maths I have been learning to read and interpret a range of graphs. This relates to the National Standards as it meets the criteria of: Delete the ones that are not yours
  • I can identify patterns and trends in context, within and between data sets (Year ⅚ standard)
  • I can compare distributions visually (Year ⅞ Standard)
  • I can compare sample distributions visually, using measures of centre, spread, and proportion (Year 9/10)


Here is link to my Statistical Literacy spreadsheet  which shows all of the graphs and tables I can read and interpret.


I have also compared and contrasted some of the graphs. Below are the links to them

My next step is to use these in my leadership investigation next term.
