Q.which two weights need to be swapped to balance the scales?

problem: i think that this could be about measurements and weighing

clarify:[nothing to be clarified]

find the big picture: find two weights and swap them to weigh the same

1. i first added both sides to see how much each side weighed

the left side weighed 10 and the right side weighed 16

2. i used trial and error by swapping 5kg with 6kg now the left side weighs 11kgs and the right side weighed 15

3. I’m now 100% sure that isn’t correct

4. so then I swapped 2kgs with 4kg but 2 was to small so i tried again

5. so then I tried 8kg with 4kg now the left side weighed 14kg and the left side weighed 12kg so I then realised that I had one number left that was just right

6. so then I found the answer I swapped 6kg with 4kg

solution:  used guess check and improve in this task

Q; 23 which two weights need to be swapped to balance the scales

problem; I think that this problem is about measurements and numbers

clarify: [nothing to be clarified] e.g

find the picture: swap 2 weights so both sides weigh the same

1. I added both sides to see how much each side weighed. I found that the left side weighed 15kg and the Right side weighed 12kg.

2. I used trial and error  by swapping 4kg and 5kg. I found that the Left side now weighed 17kg and the Right side weighed 11kg.

3. This obviously was not correct.

4. I then swapped 9kg with 7kg. The Left side now weighs 14kg and the Right side weighs 14kg. Both sides now balance.

Summary: The strategy i used was guess check and improve

classroom application

Dear: jess

I have been thinking about my application so I thought I would tell you a bit about why I should be a part of 5/6a


Hi jess my name is Shakira and I am 11 years old I am very caring I love sport, my determination to learn is quite high and I like to read book’s that influence my life.


The way I read is quite unusual I like to climb up in a tree and read my book were all that surrounds me is myself my book and my imagination itself.


I bring lots of care into my classroom and I make sure everyone feel’s welcome and that their ideas are heard.


I bring leadership in sport not only because I’m house captin but if somebody is sitting down and there determined to play whilst I’m playing I  would take there spot


To take care of my community I look for the smallest yet dullest problem make a goal out of that and then achieve it.


Being confident means being pride and bold but you have to be very strong I show confidence during a presentation.

So jess do you think that I’ll be a good student in 5/6a think of this a confident caring leader who has potential to do anything she’s willing to do yet very inspirational student

King regards shakira
