Interior Angles of a Triangle

Earlier this week in Geometry, we did solving for the interior angles of a triangle. At first it was a bit confusing because I didn't quite understand the rules or how to go about working it out.

Thankfully, Mr Janse was kind and patient enough to help clarify my understanding. Here is an example of a few "easy" problems that we managed to solve. So the most important thing that you have to remember is that the interior angles which means the angles inside the triangle is equal to 360 degrees. 

Hopefully you will be able to follow my calculations/working out. I will only answer the first 2 sums and then you can have a go at the other 2.

a) x + 32 + 48 = 180                                                                                                                                                       x + 80 = 180                                                                                                                                                              x = 180 - 80                                                                                                                                                        x = 100  (this sum I found quite easy but the next when needed more complex thought)

b) For this sum I combined my knowledge of Algebra and formed an equation.

x + x + 28 + 90 (right angled triangle) = 180                                                                                                                                                   2x + 118 = 180                                                                                                                                                             2x = 180 - 118                                                                                                                                                   2x = 62                                                                                                                                                                 x = 62/2                                                                                                                                                             x = 31

As Mr J always says, we have to proof that our answers are correct, so here goes nothing folks. When you have solved for the unknown, in this case it is x, then we substitute it into the equation/rest of the part we are trying to solve. We already have 90 and the bottom right angle is 31. Next take x which is 31 add it to 28 (x + 28...........31 + 28 = 59).  Double check again - 90 + 31 + 59 = 180, so my answer is correct.

Let me know what you think of this activity. Also what are you guys doing for Mathematics during lockdown. I have added a video below. Hope this helps :)

How to Inoculate Your Team Against Conspiracy Theories Conspiracy theories, what is a Conspiracy theory? Conspiracy theories are theories that have no solid proof, like someone says “the earth is flat” then they just show you a picture of a flat earth that they probably found on the internet. Another example is someone who says that aliens are real and then you ask “why” then they say “because I saw them”, and that's not even enough then you ask “and?” then they say “thats all”. 

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of NASA's Apollo Moon Landing with  Educational Resources and Projects for Kids - Teachable Moments | NASA/JPL  EduToday, I will be exploring a few well known theories. Was the moon landing faked? Some people think the moon landing is fake and some people think that it is real, there is some proof that the moon landing may have been faked but it's not solid proof that it was fake. The reason people believe that the moon landing was fake is because some of the photos have no stars. For example, look at this picture, it has no stars.

There are two more main reasons why people believe that the moon landing was fake, one was the lightning is wrong and the other big one that really boggles my brain is that the flag in the picture is waving even though there is no air in space.

Blucifer: What's the Story With Denver Airport's Scary Horse Statue?The blue mustang aka blucifer, blucifer is a blue horse statue with bright red eyes, blucifer is located in Denver International Airport. It is said that the man that made it, Luis Jimรฉnez died in 2006 at 65 after building the terrifying statue. There are very weird paintings in Denver International Airport, for example there was a weird person with a gas mask with a gun while stabbing a dove. But there are some good paintings, there were paintings with people around the country standing in front of the person with the gas mask and the gun and the doves are standing on his body.

Another example is Paul McCartney, some people believe that Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash in 1967 and replaced by a lookalike.

What is the Illuminati? You asked Google – here's the answer | Martha Gill  | The GuardianIlluminati, some people believe that it is real some don’t, but the real questions are What is the Illuminati? and What is the Illuminati? and What did they want? The Illuminati is a name for many groups of people, both are real and fiction. The name normally comes from the Bavarian Illuminati. A secret society was founded on the 1st of May 1776 in Bavaria. The society's main goal is to prevent superstition, religious influence over public life, and abuse of state power. The Illuminati uses a different language called Latin, Latin is a classic language. Through the power of the Roman Republic, it became the dominant language in Italy, but then eventually it became a dead language. 

Something Sinister by Lily

 Bonjour readers and welcome back to my blog! Today's blog post is about my writing journey. We've recently done a very new topic to me and it's about conspiracy theories.  

If you don't know what conspiracy theories are, I'll be explaining it in my writing down here. As for my structure, I've decided to use an explanation writing as a vehicle and I hope that you enjoy my story! 

What are conspiracy theories? It is a theory that is a belief that an influential organisation is responsible for an unexplained event, for example, is Covid-19 real or not. There are many popular conspiracy theories out there in the world that most scientists or a group of people explain how they believe it's fake or real! 

My conspiracy theory is about a show that  is very popular and has still been going on for these past few years! It’s about Spongebob, everyone's childhood favourite but there’s a twist with the show. What is Spongebob you may ask? It is a show that everyone liked to watch as a child, it’s very popular even today and the show has been going on for nearly 22 years. I’ve generally found it to be a good show, that is filled with lots of fun and joy. 

One of the theories is that it is believed that Spongebob’s characters are the seven deadly sins! So is there a darker, more sinister side to a much loved cartoon animation? Let’s explore.

One of the seven deadly sins is represented by Sandy. She is represented as knowing for pride why? Because she's always overjoyed when she is really good at something (which makes her kinda crazy). 

Mr Krabs is very greedy when it comes to money, he only cares about being rich which is why he's obsessed when someone tries to steal the Krabby Patty Formula, because it makes him rich and more money more obsession. 

Pearl (Mr Krabs Daughter) she is very boy-crazy and that's so weird but she's super obsessed with boys. Plankton always tries to find out Mr Krabs Krabby Patty formula and it makes him so jealous that he envies Mr Krabs and always tries but never gives up on his dream to open a famous restaurant that everyone would love. 

Mrs Puff is always addicted to eating too much which is making her eat too much and turn a bit fat, she also has a very bad temper with Spongebob. 

Squidward is always angst with everything, his job, work and life. He still keeps going but just in a bad mood every single day. Patrick is a sloth who is lazy but has down side syndrome ever since his parents didn't want him, he lives under a rock and sleeps too much that is why Patrick is unemployed (he's just too lazy like me sometimes!

Although every character is unique and has their own way of teaching us on what we should become one day. In my opinion it’s about us knowing that we only live once, that we need to pick up what we all learn, that we can never give up and that we can lead our own pathway to success for our own future. 

Most of all is that your dreams do come true. If you have your own, mature, growth mindset! This conspiracy theory has taught me a lot about myself and my own struggle. I’ve learnt from it and I’m grateful that I know I can change into a better person! 

So, am I reading too much into this or should I rather just take the cartoon at face value. I am really looking forward to hearing all your responses and thoughts about my topic.

Geometrical Reasoning by Mariah



Hello, I know it's been a while since I last blogged, so I decided to blog something I'm interested in. I'm interested in animals. I made an information report on endangered species, I only chose three species, cause there is no way I would want to write about a lot of other kinds of endangered species.
