How is your recording the same as the original song? Why did you do this?
My recording is the same as the original song because i used the same tempo so that i could make sure i was on beat. I also sang along to the actual song and i did my best to stay on beat with my singing.
How is your recording different compared to the original song? What were your reasons behind your decisions?
My recording is different to the actual song because i made my own chords by playing different notes until i got the sound that i was looking for. After i got the sound i was looking for i would slowly find the next note and play it from the start to make sure that i sounded good
Ukulele Skills (if you did this yourself)
I didnt really use that many skills in this assesment other than maybe making my own chords and i guess picking? But normally when im playing ukulele or guitar i just do the same thing that i did for this assesment and i try to make it sound as close the the original song as possible.
Garageband editing – digital instrument, drum use…
In garageband i used a lot of drummers to add to the “beat drop” so that it sounded good and close to the original song. I changed some of the settings of the drummers like the square that says loud, soft, complicated and simple until i got a sound that i was happy with.
Time management for your project…
I think that i did pretty well in managing my time this time around becuase i got my work done on time but i forgot to add piano so thats a bad thing. I can say that during this assesment i put in maximum effort but i think i just need to pay attention more instead of just going off and doing my own thing. I should’ve read the instructions more carefully.
Independent learning… (responsibility of getting things done on time)
I think i did pretty well on being independent but again i need to do a better job on reading instructions.
This week what went well was that during PE I scored 3 touchdowns!! but i think that this week i should improve on staying on task and not having any side conversations with my peers that are off topic. Next week I would like to work on my presentation skills when we are practicing our exhibition. I would also like to practice interpreting graphs and data because we took too long to do our interpreting data yesterday.
Last week was exhibition week so we did a lot of work on our exhibition. We did a lot of research on pollution and we listed down some facts. We also decided that we want to 3d print our prototype. I also got a message from somebody saying that i could work with grade 3s because they are doing a unit about pollution and factories. We have decided to start making our prototype for our product tomorrow. And we will start making our final product within the next two weeks.
This unit we learned about theoretical probability and experimental probability. Theoretical probability is what has already been proven so like if you are flipping a coin then you know that you have a ½ chance on landing it on tails. And if you land it on heads a lot of times in a row then your chances of it landing on tails will increase. And experimental probability is when you actually do it. So like if you flip a coin normally you would think that if you flipped it 50 times then you would get 25 of them on heads and the other 25 on tails. But that is not always true because maybe you would have to flip it 100 times or even 1000.
During this unit I found that learning about probability is actually really useful because you can use it a lot of real life situations. Like say if you are playing a game of Yahtzee then you can find out the odds of you actually rolling a full house or a Yahtzee.
Some challenges in this unit were actually during the very start when i was trying to figure out the answer to the word problems that we were given. But my friend helped me and he taught me how to solve them.
But overall i think that probability is really useful and you can use it a lot in your real life so you should take some time to learn it and trust me it will help you a lot. Thank you for reading my blog post and have a great day!!
This week i learned about a game called Yahtzee, Yahtzee is a fun game about probability. Me and my table group were very lucky in this game and we learned that you need to choose which space you use wisely because sometimes in the middle of a game you might get a large straight but you already have that filled in so you need to think about the probability of you getting a straight twice in one game. In future I can use this because when I go to university I want to be like my brother and sell sneakers to earn money. So then I can use probability to like tell people that the chance of the price of this pair of shoes will probably go up because they are selling fast. Next week i will work on my exhibition more efficiently and use my time well because we only have 3 weeks to do exhibition until we actually get to do it. My highlight of the week was probably sports day because i won the 100m boys final and we came second in the relay race against Charlie so i am proud of the mountain lions that mede the relay team. And i would also like to say good job to the people that were in the 100m finals.
