WALT: Identify and evaluate the author's purpose and point of view

This is my Author's Purpose Reading Task for this week. It has a various amount of texts
that we had to find the author's purpose to. There is also a create slide at the end which

Benefits of Physical Activity!

Benefits of "Physical Activity!"

Physical Activity is also known as Fitness or Exercise. And like everything else, you get benefits
out of being a regular exerciser. This means exercising on the daily, and committing to keeping
yourself healthy. Like I said before, benefits come out of it. Such as, getting fit, improving your body
image and you are able to do a lot more things than the average person can. Here are some benefits
that you can get out of becoming a regular exerciser!

#1. It Strengthens the Heart! - First of all, you may not know, but your heart is also a muscle.
Like any other muscles, exercise can strengthen them as a result in making you stronger and stronger.
This means that when you exercise, you’re muscles may get bigger and stronger each day.
Since the heart is also a muscle, fitness improves the hearts beating speed and keeps it strong and
healthy. Having a weak heart can lead, “Ischemic Cardiomyopathy” which occurs when your heart
becomes too weak to pump enough blood to the rest of your body due to coronary artery disease.
The blood vessels attached to the heart muscle narrow and eventually become blocked. Approximately
90% of people that are diagnosed with, “Ischemic Cardiomyopathy” aren’t able to live past a year.

#2. Reduces Risks of Deadly Diseases! - Fitness does a huge part when it comes to illnesses
and keeping your body healthy. On the inside! I say on the inside because some people think that it
only improves your body image, and how you look on the outside. But, no. It affects majorly on the
inside of your body. This means that some exercise could do damage but most exercise helps you
when you are sick or when you have failing body parts. Scientists haven’t found exactly what exercise
is needed but try anything and see if it works. Exercise helps to reduce the risk of developing heart
disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes.  

#3. Gives you a Longer n Happier Life! - Scientists believe that fitness has a big positive impact
on depression, anxiety and ADHD. It also boosts overall mood. The average person, is happy less
than 50% of the time, compared to exercisers which are happy most of their lifetime due to the kind of
different body-movements they may do during their lifetime.  Research on depression, anxiety and
exercise shows that the psychological and physical benefits of exercise can also help improve mood
and sleep as well as reduces stress and anxiety. Regular physical activity also lowers blood pressure,
burns body fat, and lowers blood sugar levels, all of which benefit heart health. The power of exercise
to help the heart cannot be understated. Regular exercisers have been proven to live at least 4 years
more than the normal age rate.

So, overall exercise is amazingly good for you! It helps you not only on the outside but on the inside
as well. Majorly! At first, I didn’t know so many good benefits that could come out of exercising until I
did a bit of research and, BOOM! Its amazing how the Internet can help you these days. Yeah, but
anyways, exercising is a major thing in everyone's lives and like I said before, keeping fit and healthy
leads to happiness. It also gives you options to be stuck on the couch or day playing fortnite these
days and stuffing your face, but you also have to option to get up, go for a walk/jog/run and have a
bit of exercise as well as enjoy your day! There are also gyms that are useful when you can’t workout
outside because of bad weather. So, today is your day! Your day to get off that couch and get up and
benefit not only you, but the people surrounding you. I was told that, “If you believe, then you can
achieve!” If you believe in yourself, than you can do anything you put your mind to. Today is YOUR day! All you have to do is...BELIEVE!

3 Laws of Motion

3 Laws Of Motion

First Law Of Motion - INERTIA
  1. A still object will stay as is
  2. A moving object will keep moving with the same speed
  3. Won’t change unless acted upon by an unbalanced force
  4. Things want to stay where they are
  5. Laziness - The object won’t move

Second Law Of Motion - FORCE & ACCELERATION
  1. Heavy and light has different movements
  2. Force = Mass x Acceleration
  3. Law states that the rate of change of momentum of an object is directly proportional to the
  4. unbalanced force in the direction of force.
  5. The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force exerted and inversely
  6. proportional to the object’s mess

Third Law Of Motion - ACTION & REACTION
  1. When you kick the ball, your leg is the force and the ball is the motion.
  2. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
  3. A force in anything.
  4. Force is gravity
  5. Action is when you do something
  6. Reaction is what happen
Newtons 3 Laws of Motion

First of all, what are the 3 laws of motion? What does this mean? Well, Issac
Newton is a famous scientist who came up with these 3 laws of motion. Which are -
1) Inertia, 2) Force & Acceleration, and 3) Action & Reaction. All of these laws have
different meanings and they all do different things. These are involved in our life a lot,
even when you don’t know it. So...for those who need to know what these laws are,
I’m here to tell you. Lets Go!

First Law of Motion - Inertia

So, what is Inertia? Inertia is when an object stays in its same position. This means
that something is very hard to move and will often stay in its unchanging position.
It will remain still unless acted upon by an external or unbalanced force. Inertia is the
resistance of any sort of physical object to any change in its state of motion. For
example - You won’t be able to push a wall forward, or you won’t be able to pull it
towards you. Unless you use something destructive like a wrecking ball or another
hard machine used for such things like breaking walls or bustings things down.

Second Law of Motion - Force & Acceleration

What is Force & Acceleration? Well, force is any push or pull acted upon an object in
any direction. So, if I push a box left, me pushing it is the force and the box moving is
the motion.
But, acceleration is more complicated then that. Acceleration doesn’t only
have a magnitude, but it also has a direction. This law states that force on an object
equals the mass times the acceleration. Mass x Acceleration = Force. Also heavy and
light objects have different movements.

Third Law of Motion - Action & Reaction

What is Action & Reaction? Newton said, “For every action, there is an equal and
opposite reaction.” Which means that if something is acted upon there will always
be a reaction. Like, if I hit someone, they will react in some way. An Action is when
you do something, like if you kick a ball thats an action. A reaction is when you’re
action makes something react to what you did. Reaction is what happens after you’re

Facts about Issac Newton

Issac Newton was a famous scientist. He worked in many areas of mathematics and
physics. Newton developed the theories of gravitation in 1666, thats when he was
only 23 years old. About 20 years later, he created his 3 laws of Motion. In 1687, he
published, ‘Philosophae Naturalis Prinicipia Mathematica’ This was regarded to be
the one of the important books in the history of science. In it he describes universal
gravitation and the 3 laws of motion.

Fab Fractions

Fabulous Fractions
We are learning to identify the relationship between fractions.

What is 2/4 of 50? 25

What is ½ of 50? 25

What is 4/4 of 8?   This is the same as 1 whole of 8

What is ⅕ of 10? 2

What is 2/10 of 10? 2

What is ⅓ of 12? 4

What is 2/6 of 12? 4

What is 1/13 of 26? 2

What is 2/26 of 26? 2

What do you notice about these fractions?

Show your working for the remainder of the problems

I have 2/16 of a cake at a birthday party. I keep going back for more
and eat another  6/16 of a cake. What fraction of a cake have I eaten
altogether? 2/16 + 6/16 = 8/16

⅓ + ⅔ =      3/3 or 1 whole

⅙ + 2/6 =     3/6 or 1/2

12/25 + 3/25 = 15/25

I have 5/21 of a cake left over from the party. Then I give 3/21 of a cake
to my sisters. What fraction of a cake do I have left over? 5/21 - 3/21 = 2/21

½ + 2/4 =  1 whole

3/6 + ⅔ = 7/6

⅕ + 2/10 = 2/5

Fractions, Decimals & Percentages

WALT: Find fractions of a whole

This is my task/presentation for Wk 6 of Term2. It is completely based around,
fractions, decimals and percentages. There are a few different questions.
I found it easy at the beginning, however, I took a while to do the last question,
about percentages. But, I got through it in the end!
