My goal is to make a 3D shape that overlaps making a really cool design going upward or having a cool pattern in the middle.
This week we started to use beetle blocks we learnt about obtuse angles. Then we hit the starter code in a design books to make a Dodecagon or a hexagon. Once we finish that we started working on building blocks we started to make a Dodecagon. I have learnt why each block works and each command I’ve learned about the fraction block and the repeat blocks Here is the code I used to make it.
For the next step we had to make a pattern. I decided I was going to make a Dodecagon pattern so there is a Dodecagon and you repeat the pattern and it goes around in circle and it has a hole in the middle. You here’s the code and photo.
This is the fraction symbol you have to have it out of 360 and put the next number by what shape you want to make it. If I was making a polygon, I would make it 360 / 12. You need to use when making a shape. It also gives you the number of sides you want on your shape.
#3 Stacking shapes
Next activity we were challenged to find the code of how stack our shapes I’m stacking a Polygon. Here’s the code I used for it.
Here is a photo of what it looks like:
#4 Turtle art patterns
We started of trying to make shapes and then patterns. This is the square and then my patterns.
#5 Rotational Symmetry
Today we had to start making shapes that can make something by using one thing and repeating it. I made something that looks a bit like a lollipop. I started with the line and then continued and made it a circle and played with the size and the colour. I have made a screen cast of me explaining it. To get this:
