Why basketball is the best sport

Foul!  Double dribble!  If you don't know what i'm talking about then you don't love basketball  like I do. Foul and double dribble are both penalties from the best sport basket ball. The reason I like basketball is because it involves speed, catching, passing and shooting and i'm good at most of them.

I don't only enjoy playing basketball but also watching basketball. My favorite player is  Klay Thompson because he is great at shooting three pointers. He is apart of my favorite team the Golden State Warriors. They are currently holding the second place title for the longest winning streak with 28 wins in a row. In first place is the los angeles lakers with thirty eight wins in a row.

The position I play is also the same as klay thompson, shooting guard.   I am shooting guard  because i'm great at dribbling the ball and passing. I have an outstanding  ability to set up offensive players for the shot. However the skills i'm not good at is intercepting and blocking.

My attitude on the court is not the best and needs improvement but i'll keep on working on it. The the that I don't like about basketball is long trainings before a big game or important tournament.
My highlight of basketball is playing against other teams and making new friends. Those are the reasons why I basketball is my favorite sport

multiplication pyramid

This is my multiplication pyramid. For this task we have to times two numbers of the pyramid and keep moving up until you get to the top.

working out for the third row numbers

75 x 405=
70 x 400 = 28000
70 x 5 =350
5 x 400 =2000
5 x 5 = 25
28000 + 350 + 2000 + 25 = 30375

405 x 486 =
400 x 400 =160000
400 x 80 =32000
400 x 6 = 2400
5 x 80 = 400
5 x 6 = 30
160000 + 32000 + 2400 + 400 + 30 = 194830

then I had permission from my maths teacher to calculate the top answers

diary entry

Today for our inquiry groups we made a draft design for our pencil holders. Our draft is just a piece of cardboard with a laughing emoji😂 drawn on it. This was a quick sketch of what the design would look like.
If our first design turns out to be good. Then we will make other designs like poke balls, pokemon, sport teams and many more designs.
