I’M ERIC AND WELCOME TO MY AWESOME+AMAZING BLOG
The action plan helped me a lot with my Summative work, it helped me organize my work and made getting things done easier. The action plan let me plan ahead so I made sure that I got all the work done and didn’t miss any steps. The Summative was too hard. I think i did a good job at taking notes on the important parts. One part I found a bit challenging was when we started making the action plan. I wasn’t good at it before so I had a bit of trouble getting started but once I understand what I need to do I got better.
What makes a credible scientist?
A credible scientist is someone who will repeat the trials many times to make sure the data more reliable. They will also control all other variable to make the data valid. The DV and IV are explain detail carefully to avoid confusion.
Why is the scientific way of knowing used in medicine compared to other ways of knowing?
The scientific way of knowing is used in medicine because in scientific way of knowing , people test it to make sure it works before giving the medicine to people. It has be confirmed that it works instead of just believing it works.
Reflecting on scientific investigations is important because you can get more accurate results by repeating investigations with improvements to your method. How would you improve your seed dispersal investigation if you were to repeat it?
I could improve my investigation by controlling the variables better. In the experiment, some of the controlled variable were not controlled properly so the testing was not very valid. There was wind in the way which made the cones fall slower because it was moving at an angle.
WHAT CREATES A SENSE OF BELONGING?
In The Outsiders, a sense of belonging is created by having people who you do things the same. The Greasers and The Socs have a sense of belonging because the gangs do almost everything together. Another sense of belonging is created by having a family that care for you. You feel like you belong in the family.
During this project I had a great time working on my laser cutting clock. I really likes this because we got to design a clock that we liked and laser cut it.I made a design that I could relate to because I am always trying to get more time even if i’m going to be late. The design was on a 20cm x 20 cm clear acrylic. it has a 9.1 mm hole in the middles for the clock mechanism. I chose clear acrylic because I thought it looked cool. This project was not hard to make.
- Explain which parts of the plan were well designed. Which parts of your plan were you most happy/proud of and why?
The parts of the plan that were well designed was moving in harmony and synchronized our moves. I am proud of this because the way we did this worked very will. During our practice we were almost always moving in harmony and the attack was always before the defence. We would always be watch each other to make sure that we were moving in harmony and we would defend when the other person got a certain point of the attack movement. The movement was also flowed very will. We were able to do one move after another so it looked very realistic. We didn’t do very well in the performance we got nervous so we were moving faster than normal.
- Explain which parts of the plan were not well designed. Which parts of your plan were you not happy with and why?
The parts that was not very well designed was spacing. During our practice we were sometimes too far from each other so our attack will not reach each other. This made the performance look weird because one person will attack and the other will defend but the the attack is no where close to reaching the other person making the defence look out of place. The the performance, we were nervous and went at different pace. This made the spacing not good and we were too close to each other. We ended up kicking each other.
- Explain how you would change the plan to improve it. If you were to do it again, what would you change in your plan and why?
If I could do Capoeira unit again, I would change to plan so it would be more detailed because our plan was lacking some detail so we didn’t improve on all the things that could would make our performance better. I would also spend more time on the spacing because we had trouble in the practice and the performance.
In this unit we learned about systems and how everything is connected. Animals in a ecosystem are connected by a food chain and food web, they depend on each other and if one part is gone then everything will be affected. System provides structure for both human and natural environment. I learned how different kinds of things could harm the environment in different ways.
Human can impact the ecosystem in many different ways. For example the plastic we use can harm many animals in the ocean, they think that it is food and when they eat it they choke and die.
I did my research for the poster, presentation and vidcast by looking at some news articles about the topic to find the problem and some other information. I also use websites with information on the topic.
I study for quizzes by looking over notes from class. This worked well because I was able to remember the facts and was able to answer the questions
Criteria Bi, Bii Session 2
The mother to son poem helped me understand family more. I learned that parents want kids not to give up when things get hard. In this poem the mother said that life is hard but she is still trying her best so her son should do the same.
At first I didn’t like poems but after the unit I found that poems could be very deep, tell you a lot with little amount of words and it is also very detailed. They could also be fun to read.
