I really like doing this term’s Passion Project, i found it fun and thrilling showing my house in a first person perspective. What i found challenging was finding the right time to do my Passion Project because there wasn’t many opportunity’s where the house was empty, and all of the boxes were out and then also the house to at least be half set up. I think this Passion Project was a great one since it was the last one and you get to learn more about the Passion Project’s as you go on through the year.
The Fay’s Nine’s activity requires for your total to add up to 999, with a 3×3 square with 9 squares in the middle. Using the numbers 1 – 9 you had to create the total, the numbers you are adding go horizontally instead of vertically.
I started messing around with this problem by trying the bigger number in the units column, middle-ish numbers in the tens column and the smaller numbers in the hundreds column, we found five base answers and with those answers you could tinker with to make the correct answer of 180.
Some of the patterns i noticed were how the units column it had to add up to 19, the tens column 18 (because you have to carry 1) and then the units column 8. (because the one that you have carried) Another pattern that we found to get answers is to mix each column from the base answers and switch them vertically, first the units, then the tens and then the hundreds.
We broke this into parts by mixing and matching from the base answers, because we switched the numbers in the units, tens and hundreds.
With our investigation we found already knew that the answer was 180, we noticed that there was 138 answers if you sorted each answer vertically and then 42 more if you sorted some horizontally, i didn’t get to write this down but we figured it out in my group.
I found this activity VERY challenging because i am not very good at finding these type of patterns and calculating how many there are in each base answer and then adding them all together, i wish to improve on this in the future and any other areas of difficulty .
I couldn’t get 2 images sorry but i have one, my group did a lot of sorting out in there books, i was a little bit confused.
Hi and welcome to my term 3 Passion Project reflection, what i found challenging was learning what to say and play the guitar notes and things that i am supposed to play because i sometimes forget and it’s a bit hard to play some of the notes. I really love doing these Passion Projects because i get to share my passions with the class.
Japan and Australia have a lot in common, like…
- They both have red in their flag
- They both have white in their flag
- They both have under 130 million people living in them
- They both have different skin coloured
Japan and Australia have some things not in common, like..
- Japan has more cultural food like sushi, edamame etc
- Japan has little car’s that are usually used as taxi’s and they’re name’s are tuk tuk’s
- Japan has different celebration’s
- Japan has cultural clothe’s called kimono’s
If i were to live in Japan it would be so much different than Australia, for instance the food i would have on a daily basis would be so much more different than Australia, i would have sushi sometime’s and then for all of the products they would usually be Japanese brand’s so they would taste different to Australia, people would be more religious in Japan and there would be different clothing that people would walk around in and things like that!
For my space habitat the place i have chosen is mars, and here why, on mars the temperature is -73 degrees c – 20 degrees c, so that is sort of normal and we could make things warmer by putting heaters powered by solar panels and we could make water by melting the icicle’s and then making water, and we could not only make power from solar panels we could also make it from making that water hot with like the solar panel power heater’s, and then that could create steam which could power things. we could terra-form the environment by planting plants like potato’s, carrot’s and etc. this might have a change on the environment by having new plants and then if there is alien’s and stuff like that on mars they might eat some plants and that might effect them in some way. this could be very useful for human because human’s may over populate on earth, and global warming and things like that. it would be a very big next step for humans and we would benefi
t a lot from it.
In this digital citizenship lesson we looked at a video called “The Lost Princess,” and in this video the was four main character’s, their names were, Lucy, Kerian, Charlotte and the Lost Princess. The character i am choosing do this blog post on is Lost Princess. Lost Princess was on an online game a lot, and in this game there was a person named White Knight, and they talked a lot, but then one day White Knight sent a fake image of himself to The Lost Princess, and The Lost Princess decided to send a real one back, and the lost princess lied about her age, but White Knight was fine about that, she admitted this when she went to a concert with White Knight, But she didn’t know who was White Knight because he had sent a fake photo, finally White Knight goes up behind The Lost Princess and says that he is actually 40, being so scared The lost Princess calls her mum and everything turned out to be fine.
It negatively affected her life by sharing her personal information to a random person online and she was kind of addicted to talking to him and she wasn’t being herself.
The issue got resolved by her going to the concert and realising that he was around about 40, but that isn’t how you should normally do it, you should normally tell and parent, adult, or friend.
She could have not given away so much personal information and she could have also told a parent, adult or friend.
I would say that the biggest message in this story is that you should never give away some of your personal information to random people online and that you should basically always tell a parent, adult, or friend about a tough situation online or in the real world.
In my first Passion Project i achieved what i was hoping to achieving, although my expectations were dropped because i forgot that i might not have as good drawing skills as some other people who do them and my lighting and setup might not have been the best.
What were some challenges?
Some of the challenges i ran into were…
We couldn’t find a good item to make it so my phone/camera was on a horizontal angle and centred in the middle of the whiteboard. Instead we had to use a microphone stand and then we had to sticky tape a selfie stick to the end of the microphone stand because it would not fit were the microphone usually is and it would always fall.
Also we couldn’t get the video’s from my phone/camera onto the computer and only some photo’s from my phone/camera would appear, i think this is because i uploaded my camera roll on my phone/camera to the i-cloud to save storage, so what we had to do was use a U.S.B which was annoying because it took a very long time.
I also ran into a problem where i might not have had a very good microphone because my family’s good microphone is in storage so what i ended up doing was using a old headset, which surprisingly seemed to have a decent microphone.
And lastly with the editing i accidentally clicked a button that made the audio mute but i fixed it, i accidentally zoomed in where you put the content and had to get it so it would at least worked decently well, and it was hard because i had to the video’s sync up with the audio, but i made this easier by looking at how long the time was of the audio and making the video the same duration, and also i sped up every video a bit and then memorised how long they go for so that i would record my different parts so that they go for around about the same amount of time.
My Dad helped me with this project.
Here is a picture of the setup i used.
