My progress on my passion project is that I just have transfer some more photos over and have to print them out. I am doing photography, as you know. I chose photography because I like to take pictures of nature and places that I have been to.
We finished Billiard Ball Bounce on the 8/11/17.
This week in project maths, we have been doing a problem called Billiard Ball Bounce. First we got a sheet of paper with a pool table on it and a line going from the bottom left corner pointing to the to a 45 degree angle pointing towards the top right corner. Your goal is to try to find a pattern so if someone tells you too numbers then you have to try to work out how many bounces it is until you get it into one of the corners. With the sheet of paper, you had to see how many bounces you could get. The tactics I used were guess and check and to check every answer. We then moved onto some dotted paper were we made our own and we had to make an estimation of how many bounces it would take and then tried it. Then we moved onto the software, put in to numbers and it would come up with your numbers into a pool table shape and then you would have to press the space button or go on auto mode so it would show the lines and tell you how many times it bounced of the edges. This is also the way that you can check your theory.
This term for my Passion Project I am not going to do a film I am going to print out some photos that I have taken because this term for my passion project I am doing photography. I love photography and to take photos. In a way, I take after my brother. He likes to take photos too. So sometimes, we go for a drive and stop somewhere just to take photos. Therefore, that is why I am doing photography for my passion project. Hope you enjoy.
Building views is the project that we have been doing this term in project maths. We started on the 11th and finished on the 17th. There are two sheets that we did; investigation sheet 1 is where there is a sheet with a four by four grid. Below that, there were some pictures of different height numbers. We got some blocks and had two put them in to the spots with numbers, the numbers are where you put more blocks. Therefore, if there were the number three then you would put three blocks stacked up on each other in that place. You would have to do the same for each one, (there are five). You have to do the side and front views. For investigation, sheet two you have to find the most and the least blocks to be used. I did guess and check for most of them. In addition, checked every answer. In addition, built a model of course. I found the recording in my book challenging because I forgot to record and had to go back. In the end you didn’t have to do the recording.
In the past two weeks we have been doing, a segment in RVE about country’s and
I did china as my country. I chose this country because I thought it would be interesting. I mean it is just that I new most of the things.
The differences between Australia and china is that they have Chinese New Year.
The similarities are that they like to wear bright and colourful colours and heaps
of dresses. In addition, they have noodles and like to play many sports including
tennis, basketball and soccer.
If I lived there, I would be used to all that stuff and think that Australia was
the different one. However, if I went there now, I would think it was different.
Nevertheless, I think I would like it. I would go there now if I could because it
looks interesting and I think I might like Chinese New Year’s.
My passion project is about Noosa, and how I like to go there. It is a slideshow of photos that have been taken over my years that I have been there. I did this topic because I like Noosa and wanted to share about it and because it is my passion to go there every year. I have been there every year since I was two. It is my passion to swim at the beach, some hikes and to watch the sunrise and the sunset. I like to go there with my family and have fun. I have done the editing and put in the pictures that we found. I have just got to export it to the k drive.
For my passion project this term, I will be doing it on my holydays to Noosa. In it, I will put the photos we take of Noosa. I thought of this idea because I have been to Noosa every year since I was 2 years old. I also chose this topic to show how much I love Noosa and to show my passion for it.
We stay in different places every time witch is good. We love to go to the beach and walk around the shops. And watch the sun set. This is why I want to do my passion project on Noosa.
Today in triple r, we went on with digital citizenship. We had to choose one of the three people to do it on. We could choose from Lucy, Kieran and charlotte. I chose charlotte.
Charlotte faced a problem of lying about her age online and shared here email and password.
I affected her life because she got court up with her phone, stopped talking to her family, and said stuff that she did not mean.
She resolved the issue by finally talking to her mum about it.
I think the massage to me is that you should never ever share your phone number or personal details with someone you do not know. And to not talk to people you do not know.
This term in year 6 has been a busy one. We have done ted talks, passion projects and much, much more. At the start of the term, we started our first passion project. “P.S we have to do another one next term.” I don’t have that many passions so this was really hard. I even asked my parents to help me think. They had nothing. Therefore, I just did baking. It was not the best but it was not the worst, I hope. Everyone laughed at it so it could not be the worst. I wonder what I will do next term.
Going onto the ted talks. I did mine on hope and how you should always have hope. We all had to do a story clip witch we would share with the year fives, fours and all of the year sixes. I think mine was pretty good if I may say so myself but it is all up to the audience. We get to choose if we also want to do a live talk. I think I will do one but I do not know.
In math this term, I think I did well. I even entered a math contest for next term. I think math will be something I will never understand.
In writing I have done some pieces that are published but not on the writers workshop wall. I have some good seeds in my seed book that I need to create into pieces. I am better at the writing part more that the reading like how I am a good catcher and not so good thrower.
My goals for next term are. 1keeping locker clean. 2 listen on the floor. 3 pick a better topic for passion project.
I really like this book. It is a really good book because it is a love story and is about luck. who would enjoy this book. everyone. well mainly girls but boys to. when I start to read this book and can not stop. it has fifty chapters but short ish. I also like it because it is a true story about a girl that doesn’t believe in luck well at least not the good kind. she believes in love.
