Throw the Ball

1. What did you learn from this activity? How is that relate to the concepts we learned in Algebra I?

I learned how to use Logger Pro to find the function and velocity of a parabola. This relates to concepts we learned in Algebra I because it uses concepts like a parabola, linear function, regression lines, and graphs.

2. What did your group do well?

Our group did well in splitting up work when finding the graphs of the three different videos.

3. What were some of the challenges your group faced?

Our group struggled with coming up with better explanations and arranging our iMovie.

4. What aspects of this activity could your group improve?

We could improve our explanations to make them more accurate and precise and also improve on the iMovie editing.

5. How could you do it differently if you are giving another try?

We could organize the works by ourselves better when creating explanations and editing the iMovie. Then we could have used time more efficiently like when we created the graphs.

Summer Reading


I would like to read “The Hate U Give” because my Ms. Long recommended it. I became interested in this topic and decide to try this out. Furthermore, I always wanted to read “Crazy Rich Asians” because I heard it was an interesting book. I have only started a few chapters and I plan to finish it during summer vacation. Finally, I want to read “Murder on the Orient express” because it is from my favorite detective fiction author, Agatha Christie. I have heard the plot is really surprising and suspenseful.

Design Technology Turtle Robot Project

My biggest obstacle was the lack of time caused by trips. My partner and I had different trip times and could not find enough time to work together.

My biggest success is that we use simple geometric shapes to create our turtle.

One piece of advice I would give further students is that it is important to use your time and split work efficiently. Otherwise, you might struggle to finish it in time.
