Maths week is still going ... only 2 more days though ...Well done to all of 22 the students who submitted answers to yesterday's question. All of the 19 correct entries went into a draw - and the Day 3 winner is Tilyla Hansen (Yr 7). Well done Tilyla!! Please pop in to see Mr Kirk (in Room 15) during Waka time to get your hot chips money.   

Question 4: A pole is in a lake. 1/3 of the pole is buried in the mud at the bottom of the lake, 1/2 of the pole is in the water, and 3 metres of the pole is above the surface. How long is the pole? Please get your answer (with working) on paper to Mr Kirk (R15) before the start of Period 5 today (Thursday). You must include working with your answer. An answer only is not acceptable.

Remember to clearly print your answer, and also make sure your name and Year level  are clearly printed on the paper as well. All correct answers will go into a draw for a bag of hot chips - with the winning name being published in tomorrow's notices (along with the final question, Question 5)
