Maramataka Progress Extension Project For Term 2
This term we have been working on making digital Maramataka for extension. This is not a finished project just an update on its progress I have been struggling a lot with getting the angles just right. We have had to use angles and degrees because we need a specific amount of pieces and we need them the same size to fit in a full circle. We had to have 30 pieces and a full circle is 360 degrees. We divided 360 by 30 but we decided to break it down into 36 divided by 3. We then broke it down again into 30 divided by 3 and 6 divided by 3. 30 divided by 3 is 10 and 6 divided by 3 is 2 so we put those together and got 12. We knew that each piece had to be 12 degrees to get every piece in. Now I have all the pieces but i’m still putting the puzzle together. Take a look!

→ They paddled waka wich was important for transport
→ They can be used as weapons if needed
→ They make waka go faster because of their design.
→ there patterns and designs can be a visual way of keeping culture and traditions alive.
- Tupaia (up until recently) and much more Polynesian history remains oral history (that means told by speaking). How can we ensure that this history is available to learn for future generations? Try to come up with at least 2 ways.
→ 1. We can tell stories and write things like books about this part of history and share them with other people.
2.We can try to learn more information and use all we find and piece it together with what we already know then share what we learn so it is not forgotten.
