Throw a ball activity was were our team, Linie, Kelly, and I had to create an iMovie based on the tragectory of the ball thrown. From this activity, I learned the connection between linear functions and quadratic function with real life situations. The concepts went deeper into the concepts of M3 and M4 such as the y-axis and y- velocity graphs. This also allowed us to refresh our memories on the y-intercept, x-intercept (zero, solution, root), vertex, domain, and range. Our group was successful in collaborating to combine our ideas in the iMovie, and to successfully finish our task. Some challenges were the disagreement of the answers for the questions. Also, because logger pro was a new software to use, there were disagreements on how to use the specific software. Our team could further improve on describing the answers for the questions in detail. If we were to give another try, I would add more details to the descriptions and I would add the descriptions to the graphs. Overall, the project was an enjoyable way to review all the important concepts learned in Algebra1.

During the Summer, I want to read at least 5 books. Three of them includes The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, The ABC Murders, and The Hate U Give. To read mystery books over the Summer, I chose to read books written by Agatha Christie, which are The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and The ABC Murders. Both books excite me because I have read previously, Murder of the Orient Express written by Agatha Christy. The Hate U Give drew my attention from ISB’s reading list. I thought that it would be interesting to read about Starr Carter’s two different worlds.
