Fay’s 9

The past few weeks we have been working on a project called Fay’s 9. We got set a task, we had a problem that went a little like this. We started with three columns and they all had to add up to 999. I started the project with trying to figure out what each column equalled. Later in that session, my partner and I found that the first column adds up to 7 or 8, the second column had to equal to 18 and the third had to be 9 or 19. For 19 we thought that there were 25 unique solutions but there were actually 5 and for 18 it was 6. The teachers soon set us a different problem over the week, which included letters and numbers. We noticed that each combo that adds up to 19 has 36 solutions and each column can be changed 6 times. 4 has to be at the top twice, 3 has to be at the top twice etc. To start of with I didn’t understand how to work out the problem but when I got it explained to me I understood. Like I said before about 5 solutions, my group and I broke it up to find that there were 5 different solutions by looking at the different possible solutions. Also we broke the problem up by finding out what each column equalled. Near the end of the project, my group and I started to get the hang of it all and we soon figured out the answer. The last session we got the answer of the question and finished the project. The answer was that there are 5 different combos that equal 19. You can swap the 10’s and 100’s around 6 times.

6 x 6 = 36,

36 x 5 = 180,

6 x 6 x 5 = 180

To start of the question made sense to me but I didn’t understand how to start off. Someone in the grade told everyone that there were 180 solutions, which meant we knew the answer and we had to figure out the rest. The question would’ve been harder to figure out in my option but the question was really interesting and to be honest I struggled a bit but it was one of my favourites. I worked with Sophie r, Lexi, Sophie Vo & Matisse.

This term I have decided to do a book of my drawings and sketches, and also making a short film to go with it. I’m making this book of drawings for my grandparents because they always love seeing what i have created. They have always loved that side of me that just sits there and draws. I’m looking forward to see what they like about it and how it will end up.

Malta RVE

Malta…

RVE we have been learning about different cultures of the world, in RVE we call it Culture’s Of The World and I chose Malta witch is a culture in Europe.

Some differences between Malta and Victoria is that Malta has only one sort of sport which is Association football (soccer) it’s the most popular sport in Malta. In Victoria we have different verities of sport that include, AFL, soccer, netball, rowing, tennis and lots more. There traditional food in Malta is rustic and is based on season. Look out for Lampuki pie (fish pie), rabbit stew, bragioli ( beef olives) and widow’s soup, which includes a small round of glejniet (sheep or goat’s cheese).

Some similarities that Malta and Australia have is that they are both part of some Catholic culture. The Maltese religion is Roman Catholic and Australian top most religion is Catholic.

If I lived in Malta I would find that the most challenging part about living there would be all the challenging and frustrating parts of the island. In Malta they don’t usually follow road rules but that’s the only think i reckon could be frustrating. If I went to Malta i would want to try all the different types of food they have and how they explore there culture.

Lost Princess

Today in digital citizenship we watched a short 12 minute film and we saw 3 different story’s of thing that would actually happen to kids online and what they believe on online.

How Lucy’s story started….

It all started when Lucy was reading her book in peace and this group of kids were talking about her and they decided to steal her phone.  Behind Lucy came up a girl and she stole Lucy’s phone without Lucy even noticing her, they said means thing to other people online and everyone thought it was Lucy saying all those mean things witch it wasn’t. She went back home that day and she saw everything they wrote and they started texting her and saying mean things to her, she felt all small and sad inside. She thought the best thing to do was to just change her password and to not tell anyone. If I was Lucy and in that place i would have done the same thing. As Lucy quoted ” be careful with what you do or say online because not everyone is trusted.

Passion Project Term 3

1 #DESCRIPTION

I am about to create a film about the holiday i just went on. Your probably wondering where i went, well i went to Los Angles and I visited Santa Monica, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Vegas, Palm springs and Disneyland.

I’m planning to use my laptop to edit the video, with a video editing program.

My audience for this project is people that love travelling, witch i know i love doing. Also people that love trying new things and going on adventure to see different parts of this earth and to create new memories to cherish forever and ever. My dream is to travel the world and that’s the one wish i hope truly comes true.

I’m looking forward to see how my film ends up looking like and to see if people enjoyed all my hard work, and all the amazing things i got to see there in america.

#Update 

I’ve achieved most of the video, the hard parts are yet to come but the video is really coming together. I can’t wait to see the end result, the video is very challenging and i’m also not the best at editing. The next step in the process is to improve the video and to expand it.

I’m exited to see how my editing skills end up like with the video and to see my holiday all over again it truly was a great experience.

 

 

#Reflection 

I have had the best time doing my passion project this term and I have enjoyed every part of it. I got everything done that I wanted and I am really happy with the end result. At first i didn’t really know where to start but as soon as I did, I got so much done. I have extended my learning because I have shown people what I saw when i went to America and how I experienced it. I’m so glad I did this video for my passion project because i miss America so much fun and if you haven’t been you should defiantly go.

Win At The Fair

In project maths we have been trailing our own game boards that is called win at the fair. Our first lesson we had to play a game board that the teachers had made for us and in the game, the school lost money and this is how we figured that out.

Then we got into the maths, we got to make our own game boards.

We got told some words that would make people play our games but the one word that stood our for me was enticing. It stood out for me because i wanted to make people play, so i would earn money. My game board wasn’t that enticing at first, until the class had a great idea. We would put $100 or higher on our board, so it would make people think they could win that much money but we put a little twist to it. We put the highest number at the bottom because when you play the game you can’t reach the bottom of the board because we made it so 4,5,6,7,8,9 ,10,11 only go up. Then we put 2,3,12 on the side because the are the hardest to role.

This is my first and second game boards:

After we trailed our last game board and we think it was enticing, we went onto maths300. We went onto maths300 to if we would earn money, witch i did. It costs $1.00 to play each game and we played four rounds to if anyone got the highest price.

This was my first game:                                          This was my second game:

This is what an in enticing game looks like.        As you can tell i didn’t get that good of money

The good thing about this round nobody got      on my second try but i kept going.

$500 and only one person got $100.

                   

 

       My third and fourth go:

On my third go, i did great and i got really      But then i went down hill again but

exited because my game board was            the average payout was $0.72

working.                                                            witch i’m happy with.

  

I hope you enjoyed my reflection on what we have been doing the past few weeks in project maths and if you would play my game board.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Digital neteiquette

Today we learnt about Netiquette: A word for Net Etiquette is Flame Wars: online wars start when we people are commenting rude things about each other online.

Flaming: flaming is when one person says something rude about a person and someone responds with an even worse comment.

Troll: Someone who just waits around to hurt someones feelings.

Anonymous: Someone with no identity and spreads mean rumours.

Netiquette: A word that’s for Net Etiquette.

Next time you see a mean comment, don’t comment anything bad but do tell them to stop and think about what they are doing.

Digital Citizenship

Today we learnt about digital citizenship. We were shown a video about what the future holds for us in 2029. It included many electronic interactive devices. It made me realise how crazy and fast the earth is changing!

What is digital citizenship? It is how to behave and respect others online. We were shown a simple acronym so we can remember before we post, tweet, etc. We must:

 

To extend on that I think:

T is it true. If it is not true then you are lying to your community.

H is it helpful. If it not helpful what is the point in putting out on the web.

I is it inspiring. You always want to inspire others and make them happy, have leadership.

N is it necessary. If is not needed then why even bother saying/doing it.

K is it kind. We always want to be kind. Online and in face-to-face conversation.

 

I decided to create my own simple acronym to remember:

P is it Personal

I is it inspiring

P is it portraying me to be a kind person

E is it equal, making others feel equal

R is it Respectful
