I forgot okay. I forgot what it was like to have a family. I’ve been on my own since I was sixteen and I forgot what it felt like to have people who love you and make you breakfast and say, “Hey, we’d love to come down for the holidays!” and I say, “Well, why don’t we come up and see you instead” and give you necklaces and you have all that here and I’m just screwing it up. Your family loves you, do you know that? You know that, and you’re still willing to put them through this. How do you know they won’t find out?
In our first class in Acting: Naturalism and Ensemble, we played a game where we had to one person had to act like something, but when the next person in line asks that person what they are doing, they had to lie. That person had to then act like what the previous person said. For example, if person A is acting like they are walking, and person B asks them what they are doing, person A lies and and tells Person B that they are waling a dog. Person B now has to act like he is walking a dog. This game was very fun because it was interesting to look at the methods people used to act out certain things. We then played a game where we had to walk and every time the teacher clapped, we had to walk faster. Then, we played a game where we had to walk, every time the teacher said ‘stop’, we had to stop and when he said ‘go’ we had to go. When he said ‘clap’ we had to clap and when he said ‘jump’ we had to jump. Then, we played a version of the game where when the teacher said stop’, we had to go and when he said ‘go’ we had to stop. When he said ‘clap’ we had to jump and when he said ‘jump’ we had to clap. I am very excited for what this elective has to offer. I enjoyed every aspect of the class and cannot wait to do more of it.
This PSA was about obesity and how it affects the lives of people with it. I think I was successfully able to make to viewer feel a certain way about this topic. I also think I was able to give out the message about obesity. However, I think I could have improved on the ending. It was not very powerful and I could have changed that.
The process of creating the catapult:
Catapult in action:
The Catapult Project is a part of learning and understanding quadratic functions. We had to build a catapult with simple materials. We had certain success criteria and limited time. To help us more accuracy, we used logger pro to create height vs time equations. Using this, we created height vs distance equations for our catapult. The catapults had hit certain targets, and the targets were of different sized. There were multiple challenges, some harder than others.
The Video shown above is one of three videos. The previous 2 videos did not work out because, while inserting it into logger pro, the background was clashing with the ping-pong ball, causing the ball to not be seen. This was one of the biggest challenges in our project. If I have to do this again, I will make sure not to make that mistake and choose a contrasting background (like the video above). This project has really helped me understand how quadratic functions are used in the real world. I also improved my factoring skills through this project.
This project was very interesting and fun to do. I learned a lot about quadratic functions through it.
This is my elevator pitch for the Capstone Project on Food Safety and Nutrition. We made this pitch so that we can clarify our thinking on our topics and also practice oral presentations. Something that I could have done better is to show more hand gestures and try to connect with the audience better that way. However, I think I was loud, clear and very expressive. I also made good eye-contact with different people in the audience. Through this elevator pitch, I was able to visualize my primary and secondary sources very well and I think this will be very helpful for future projects.
We wanted our polymer to be slightly sticky to pick up the dirt on the table. We also wanted it to be mouldable so that the user can use the product without stressing their hands too much. We also wanted the product to be very long lasting and not dry out. We decided to use the different physical properties of these polymers and try to mix them in. We will mix the borax from Gloop, Laundry starch from Boogers and PVA solution from Super Slime. We will try to test this polymer by cleaning a dirty surface (such as our table) and see if it works. We will test the polymer by trying to clean a dirty table with it.
