Careers Education C.V. Writing

In CAREERS EDUCATION we have been learning to write a skills based Curriculum Vitae.

A skills based C.V. focuses more on the skills that we have,  rather than our work history.

Here is a link to our online modeling book that shows the process we have followed.

Three things that I have learned about writing a Curriculum Vitae are:

It needs to be short and to the point.

It need to be tidy and organized.

If it has spelling mistakes most employees will throw it in the bin.

Here is a link to my Skills based Curriculum Vitae.

Assessment task: Investigate situations that involve elements of chance by comparing experimental distributions with expectations from models of the possible outcomes, acknowledging variation and independence.

Question 1:


Show your working and answer here (you may need to add a photo of a tree diagram you frew on your little whiteboard):

beath vs aroha, beath won
                                             ------------- beath vs delsey, beath won.
Connie vs delsey, delsey won



Question 2:
Car number plates in the land of Automobile have two letters and two digits. How many different number plates could be made using two letters and two digits?

Show your working and answers here:

26 x 2 = 52
                 -------------- 52 x 20 = 1,040
10 x 2 = 20


Question 3:


3a:

Use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating on whole numbers.

This is what we had to do for the extended abstract task. At the bottom are my answers.




Use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating on whole numbers

I can apply the strategy to problem solving questions





The escape

A prisoner sits in his cell planning his escape. The prisoner is kept in by 5 laser beams, which operate along a corridor. Each laser is switched off at a specific time interval for just long enough to allow a person to walk through. The time between being switched off for each laser is shown below:

  • Laser One = every 3 minutes
  • Laser Two = every 2 minutes
  • Laser Three = every 5 minutes
  • Laser Four = every 4 minutes
  • Laser Five = every 1 minutes

The guard patrols and checks the prisoner each time all the laser beams are off simultaneously. Because each laser only switches off for a short time the prisoner knows he can only get past one laser at a time. He has to get past the five lasers from 1 to 5 in order. Laser One is at the entrance of the prisoner’s cell and laser Five is at the door to the outside. He also knows that if he spends longer than 4 minutes 12 seconds in the corridor an alarm will go off.

Can the prisoner escape without the alarm in the corridor going off?

I came to more than one answer it is just about what strategy you used.
  1. He can't do it because he spends to long in the corridor
  2. He can't because the guard will come to check on him because he comes when all lasers are off and 3+2=5 and 4+1=5 as well so the guard would come at laser 3.
  3. He might also be able to get through all and then have 12 seconds to run from the guard (unless guard is fit then he will catch the prisoner unless he has a getaway car waiting.)
  4. Etc.

If he can escape, how many minutes should he wait before passing Laser One?

None he can go once the first laser has gone because it is right in front of his cell entrance so he can act like he is just standing around until the laser turns off.

How much time will he have after passing Laser Five before the guard raises the alarm?


  1. He will have 12 seconds to run
  2. It depends if he even gets to laser five
  3. It also depends on how long the guard takes.

Excellence Can do #1

Yesterday I went to technology. On the bus I sat with Natasha and at tech we decided that we wanted to make a pillow together but we wanted one each so we cut out 4 pieces of this fluffy fabric and got two pieces each then we sow them together. When I went to sow it I forgot to go back and then forward so I had to get this tool were you get it under the thread and pull it out but it was really hard to do because the fabric was fluffy. So I showed resilience by asking the teacher for help and not giving up when it was really hard. The care value I showed was respect because when the teacher was busy I dint call out her name.

Excellence must do #1

Yesterday we went to the .c.c.c. building (Christchurch, city, council.) we learned about how they make decisions about where their money goes and we also got to plan an event were we had a budget and had to meet it or below. we also learnt about what the .c.c.c. does/owns/runs I learnt that they have 7 departments that all look after stuff e.g water and lands that are special to Christchurch, building checks, looking after parks and other stuff. we also went into the council chamber, were I was a person from the press. we also had an activity were we (Natasha, Sophie & I) had an event to plan. We had a budget of $9,000. We went for a small event wears others went for a big event.
