Chemistry Unit Reflection

During the chemistry unit, I learned lots of things such as the difference between physical and chemistry property/change, separation techniques, mixtures, compounds, elements, pure substances, and etc. Additionally, the experiments about the chemistry and physical change and the instruments for separating were very interesting. Now, I know that the scientists use separation techniques with using the physical property of the substance. For example, to separate the salt from the water, you boil the water which has the boiling point of 100 degrees Celsius. Therefore, the water will evaporate and the salt which has much higher boiling point won’t evaporate.

饶宗颐文化活动

我在上周跟同学和老师们去了饶宗颐文化艺术中心,我很喜欢这个活动。

我们一起做了插花,我觉得有意思。老师给我们讲了很多花的故事何意义,中文老师作了一些翻译。然后老师让我们去选花,我选了红色的花,小小的水果和蓝色的花等等。我很喜欢它们的颜色。我觉得我选的花很漂亮的。后来我把我的花送给了我的妈妈,她很高兴。我们还玩了一个“寻找宝藏”的游戏,我们找到了很多的文字答案。我很喜欢寻找宝藏。我们在F楼看到了文字的起源和发展,我觉得我学到了很多。完成游戏后,我拿到了奖品-糖果。然而我给我的朋友我的糖果因为我不喜欢这个糖果。

我觉得这次的活动很有趣。

我的第医学其中文学习体验

After I came to phase 2 class from phase 1 class, my Chinese improved a lot. It was quite challenging to come to phase 2 but I improved my writing and reading skills by studying hard. Therefore, I could get pretty good grades for the summative as well.

On the other hand, I think I have to work on listening and speaking skills more than writing and reading. I think this is because I don’t talk very much in class. Therefore, I will try to improve these parts in the new semester. I will speak more Chinese during the class and I will also try to watch some Chinese movies so that I can improve my listening skills as well. My goal is to get higher grades than last semester and make sure that I can go to phase 3 next year.

Wise Old Owl Summative

During the fine arts music rotation, I improved my music skills which I haven’t learned before. I learned about the basic elements of the music such as the rhythms, beats, melody, and so on. Therefore, I could know how to analyze the melody, notes, beats, and etc of the music. Additionally, learning the ukulele made me know how to create the beats and melody because we have learned the basic strumming patterns and the fingerings of the ukulele. By playing the ukulele with the Bruno Mars’s “Just The Way You Are”, my skills of playing ukulele had been improved very much. In conclusion, the rotation of the music class definitely improved my music skills to create the basic songs.

Christmas Ornament Assessment Reflection

What was the greatest take away from the Christmas ornament assessment that we did with yet?                                                                                                                        Calculating the real world volumes seemed very hard for me at first even though I could just have an estimation. The reason why I felt the task was hard is because I had to think about the little details of the can. Additionally, I could not use the easy way like using the density of the can so that I could calculate the volume of the can by dividing the density of aluminium by the mass of the can. However, I knew that the can was not just made with the aluminium. There were also some other metals in it. Therefore, I finally thought about using the Archimedes’ Principle to estimate the volume of the can. After I finished estimating the volume, I felt there are lots of objectives in real life which makes calculating things much harder.

What I learned from the coaster project…

Hello, everyone!

We’ve made the coaster with the laser cutter by using the adobe illustrator recently. There were some techniques to know in order to make the coaster. Basically, we had to use only three colours which were red(R: 255 G: 0 B: 0), blue(R:0 G: 0 B: 255), and black(R: 0 G: 0 B: 0) in RGB. If I make the stroke in red with no fill, the laser cutter will cut the line of the red colour. If I make the stroke in blue with no fill, the laser cutter will grave your line of the blue colour. If I make the shape with no stroke colour and filled with black, the laser cutter will grave the entire shape. After I made my logo with the previous instruction, I had to make the stoke in 0.1pt. After that, I had to make my entire logo in size of 11cm times 11cm. And that was it! I putted my logo into the template which was given by the teacher and send that file to the teacher who was helping us to laser cut. It was really interesting that the laser cutter could only see the colour of red, blue, and black and those had to be in a certain form. Overall, it was so exciting project!

Music Reflection

During the fine arts music rotation, I improved my music skills which I haven’t learned before. I learned about the basic elements of the music such as the rhythms, beats, melody, and so on. Therefore, I could know how to analyse the melody, notes, beats, and etc of the musics. Additionally, learning the ukulele made me know how to create the beats and melody because we have learned the basic strumming patterns and the fingerings of the ukulele. By playing the ukulele with the Bruno Mars’s “Just The Way You Are”, my skills of playing ukulele had been improved very much. In conclusion, the rotation of the music class definitely improved my music skills to create the basic songs.
