What activities in this unit helped you learn a new math concept? Explain the activity, your new learning (be specific!) and provide a snapshot of the work.
In Unit 3, we learnt about Geometry. In one part, we did an investigation about finding the area of a circle. We used four different methods in the investigation: the Curvy Parallelogram, the Egyptian Method, and Beans. All of these methods have very close answers to each other and the original answers. The Curvy Parallelogram is most efficient of all methods in my opinion because since I know how to calculate the area of a parallelogram, it is an advantage to calculate it.
I have learnt many different skills in PE, including co-operation and teamwork. But the one that I think impacts me most in my daily life is sportsmanship, because in order to success in a sport, we need to train hard and practice every day to get used to the sport and excel in it. I always wanted to play basketball properly, therefore I practice shooting the ball into the net for at least 45 min in the weekend. My dad knows basketball, so he then plays and practices with me. Now I can play quite well in a basketball shooting in PE class.
In the very first unit in Science this year, we built a piece of furniture using cardboard. The purpose of the piece of furniture is to give the best mode of comfort for students in school. Before we made the piece of furniture, we learnt about different kinds of scientific principles, such as stability, centre of gravity, different kinds of forces (external and internal), etc. All these terms are components on making a perfect piece of furniture (I made a cardboard sofa). Next we did some experiments related to our question. I worked on the question “How the number of beams affect the stability of the furniture?”. Based on the results, I used the highest number of beams as reference for the number of beams I would add to my furniture.
I used different methods to solve the problems, like asking the teacher for help. For conducting research, I used Google to search up science-related information.
What I have learnt so far?
In Humanities, I have learnt a lot since the very beginning of the school year. I have learnt some geography skills, such as BOLTS and using coordinates to find a specific region in the planet (absolute location). I also did a fun activity about zombies. I learnt about teamwork (MMA), and citing sources from NoodleTools, and also learnt to search information in a specific way from Ms Holm in the library. This subject is actually one of my most successful subjects in this school.
This might be useful when I want to become my dream occupation, a palaeontologist, because they need to go to different places that have various geographic landscapes. Teamwork is also a key factor I can use in the future.
Humanities is awesome, even better than the one in my old school.
App 3 – conditional checker
|This app is a simple conditional checker app. I used three objects (text fields, labels and a button) on the storyboard. I created 2 @IBOutlets to interface my objects, in addition to an @IBAction to allow my button to tell if the student is in US or LS. I learned using “if” and “else” to show that if the condition is different, things would change. It is my most successful app, as it tells me what a basic app looks like.∗
