For my country investigation I did Iran.
There are many differences between Iran and Australia. a big one for me is religion. A large percentage of people in Iran believe in Shi’ism but the main religion in Australia in Christianity. another difference in food. Iran has many unique dishes that I had never heard of before I started thin investigation. People in Iran also have a very different dress code. Woman in Iran have to cover everything apart from hands, feet and their face.
Although there are many differences there are a some similarities as well. one of them is sport. we both have a traditional sport unique to our countries. Thiers is wrestling. Ours is AFL. We also both have a very popular interest in soccer. Soccer is one of their most popular sport as it is one of ours.
If I lived in Iran I would find it challenging to adjust to the massive difference in religion and belief. Although it would be a challenging change it would also be very interesting. Because our cultures are so different it would be a great learning experience to experience life in Iran.
I have enjoyed this project and it has been so interesting to learn about the amazing culture of Iran.
for the editing of my passion project I put some effects on my go karting footage. the editing wasn’t that hard because the footage was in order when I put it into premier pro so I only had to delete extra footage and cut down the clips that were to long. I started my passion with how to get it started and then started driving round the track. i’m really happy with how it turned out and it was just how I wanted it to in the end. I think that this is the better of my two so far.
in science we did an experiment called “the heat on yeast”. We mixed yeast, sugar and water together. We changed the temperature of the water to find the optimal temperature for yeast to rise. We mixed in three different bottles. We saw which one worked the best because it had a balloon on top and if it made C2O the it would inflate. One bottle had cold water, one warm and one hot. We estimated which would work the best. I already knew that warm water was ideal because of earlier findings. I liked this experiment because it was very active and was involving and we could see what happens.
I recently finished the production stage of my passion project. to do this I filmed me on the go kart around our house. I got some great clips that will make the editing phase really fun. I got some clips all around our track and on one I nearly ran over 🙂 . I am really happy with my clips because my passion project is turning out just as I wanted it to and is really come together.
TODAY WE HAD SOMEOONE FRO THE COMPANY ADOBE COME IN AND TEACH US ABOUT SOME OF THEIR SOFTWHERE. IT WAS REALLY INTERESTING TO HAVE AN EXPERT WHO KNOWS ALOT ABOUT THE PROGRAMS COME SHARE HIS KNOWLEDGE WITH US. THE PROGRAMS THAT WE LEARNT ABOUT WERE; PHOTOSHOP, CHARACTER ANIMATOR & SPARK. IN PHOTOSHOP WE MADE A LITTLE DUDE AND PUT IT INTO CHARACTER ANIMATOR AND IT DID THE SAME STUFF AS US. THIS WAS AWESOME AND IT IS AMAZING HOW YOU CAN PROGRAM THAT STUFF. IN SPARK WE CREATED A POSTER THA REPRESENTED ONE OF OUR HOBBIES AND ALSO A SLIDSHOW. WE WERE ASKED THE QUESTION; HOW WIL OUR LEARNINGS HELP US? THIS IS WHAT I THINK.
THESE PROGRAMS WILL HELP WITH A LOT OF CAREERS. ALSO THEY ARE A UNIQUE AND CREATIVE WAY TO LEARN AND EXPRESS OURSELVES.
OVERALL THE DAY WAS SUPER INTERESTING AND I LARNT ALOT ABOUT THESE PROGRAMS.
For my film I am doing the splitpoint lighthouse. I am really interested In this because it is near where I lived and I want to know more about shipwrecks on that coast and also about the history of the lighthouse. Here is a short history on split point lighthouse
The lighthouse was built in 1891 because there had been ten shipwrecks along the coast so the lighthouse was needed to help guide ships along the shoreline. It operated automatically in 1919. The 920mm focal radius lens was constructed in 1886. The cast iron stairs and balustrades have stayed in the lighthouse up until today. Now the lighthouse is a great tourist attraction and tours are run so you can go up and see the light.
I am going to choose the one of the 10 shipwrecks, the Loch Ard, as my story because I already know a little about this and I think that it is a really amazing story. Loch Ard was a ship which sunk at Mutton bird Island just off the Shipwreck Coast in 1878. Also I think that everyone will be interested in this.
This week in project maths we did something where we had to add all the up to numbers from 1-100. This dude called Gauss was in class and he had finished his work. the teacher gave him the same question as us, thinking that it would take him a long time. It took no at aa. We had to think about how he added them up so quickly and what strategies he used. I though that he made pairs that equalled 100 for example 1+99=100. There are 49 pairs that equal 100 and the number 50 and 100 left over. so the end equation was 49*100+100+50=5050. This didn’t take me long at all but Gauss was definitely a lot faster than me.
For my passion project I have decided to do one on go-carting. I have chosen this because it is something that I really enjoy. I am really looking forward to showing everyone about my go-carting and completing my second passion project. I can’t wait to get some footage and go through the editing stage again. I have a feeling that this will be one of my favourite film yet and I can’t wait to get started on it.
In project maths the other day we started problem called ‘a close game’. It was about a rugby game and we had to work out the score. We were given a tally with the value of a trie, a conversion and a penalty and how much each team scores. After we had added that up we changed the value of a trie and see how affected the result. We did three different ways. In one game. New Zealand won, the second time it was a draw and the third Australia won.
