This term we have been learning about traditional Māori clothing and we had a go at creating our own garments. Here is our work. Please leave a positive, helpful and thoughtful comment.

Create - Mathematics. We are learning to plan and conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
- determining appropriate variables and data collection methods;
- gathering, sorting, and displaying multivariate category, and time series data to detect patterns, variations, relationships and trends;

We will have met the success criteria when we

Final graph
The pages with the most articles are page 13 to 14. The pages with the latest articles wore pages 3 to 4. This shows that pages 13 to 14 are most likely to be looked at longer than all the other pages and pages 3 to 4 are less likely to be looked at for longer. Why does Pg 3 and 4 have less articles than pg 13 and 14?
