Math Patterns

This week when we did patterns I think I understand what it is but I think I can do it quite good in finding the formula but there is always room for improvement. I will work on doing it better so that I can do it easily. Right now I can do it quite well. I can understand patterns well. Here is an example of a pattern.


Egg Suck

Last Wednesday, 6C did an experiment called the Egg Suck (a.k.a. The Fire/Water – Type Pidgey experiment). In this experiment, we tried to make an egg go into a flask. Flask A had boiled water in it and B had a match in it on fire. The B specimen worked because the heat was higher so it worked faster. It was super interesting and hooking.

Science Rotations


In week 2, there was a weeklong science rotation activity, where there were different activities to go to from Monday to Thursday. My first activity was called “What’s the Matter with Matter?” where we got to research about Matter on the web. I learned a lot about different states of matter, especially Plasma. 


The next activity was sun printing. In this activity, we got to do a type of blueprinting: Sun printing. First, when you open the package, you must work fast, because when it is exposed to sunlight, it immediately starts developing. You have to put what you want to be printing by putting it on the blue piece of paper. Next, you have to leave it somewhere sunny and when the paper gets lighter, put it in water so it stops developing. This was super cool for me because it was the first time I did it.


My final one was a science experiment where we made foam in a test tube with baking soda, or sodium bicarbonate(NaHCO3), citric acid (C6H8O7) and detergent. This is the order we did it in with diagrams. The more baking soda you put in, the bigger the reaction and the bigger the reaction, the more foam comes out. At 3 level spoons, the cylinder overflowed! The foam smelled like soap. This experiment was very cool for me and I enjoyed it.


Overall, I think the whole rotations where all interesting and I was really hooked every second.
