Passion Project #Update

What I have done so far is look up some of my favourite quotes and written those down so I remember them for my book of quotes.

What I have learnt is that it is very important that you take on those quotes and put them into your everyday life because quotes are very important to give you inspiration for your life when your having a bad time in your life

The challenges I have faced are trying to find quotes I like and trying to find a journal with no lines on it because I need to write and draw pictures.

The thing i need to do next is to transfer the quotes onto my journal and draw some pictures then I will be done.


Passion Project Term 3 #description

For my term 3 passion project I have chosen to do a quote book. I will include all my favourite quotes and all of the quotes that inspire me  and read them when I am feeling down or not feeling the best because it will lift my spirits up. The materials I will use are a journal to write all my quotes in and some sharpies and pens and all decorative stuff to use to make it look good and I will get my journal from typo or somewhere where they have good stuff.

Passion Project

I changed my idea a little bit I was originally going to do a film on how to do a front flip but then I think that got to hard so I decided to change it a little bit and just show some of the skills I can do and my friend. The successes I faced was we didn’t have many filming issues and after it didn’t take so much time to edit and my friend helped me to edit. The challenges I faced was finding a day to catch up with my friend because most of the time I’m doing gymnastics and another challenge was the weather because where we live it is freezing cold and raining all the time. I think I could extend by making maybe a harder project or I could make the video a bit longer but I think I did a good job and I am excited for next term.

Here is the video



Win at the Fair

Win at The Fair is a fun maths game. You roll two dice and whatever number you land on there is a direction you counter needs to go. Some places you land on you win money (its not real). Some places you land on have black holes or a major jackpot which is quite hard to get on to but if we did it in a maths program called maths 300 and we tested 1000 games on the laptop. Some people were lucky and got the major jackpot  Here is a picture of the game board.


This game board is not the version we created but this is an example of what the game board looks like. it is a good game when you get the concept and you can add like black holes and once I got 1 place away from the major jackpot.

From the maths 300 I didn’t really know what we were doing because I was away so my friends showed me how to work it and it is a hard but fun game we had to add in our game and all the prizes then we entered 1000 games into the computer and it showed us how many times the people who played landed on and you should have got a profit of 300 was your goal and I think we got really close to that or a bit over. Our first attempt wasn’t very successful because we made a profit of $489. It was ok but every time we improved and we took out 1 of the 0 because people wouldn’t of want to play because you wont win much money. Here is our last attempt.



On the last one we did a bit worse we lost 600 dollars

Our board is the best because we put the jackpot in a hard position were not many people can get to there

Digital Elements

Permission – It means that if you want to take a photo of someone and post it on the internet that you have to ask them if you can post it and if they say no then you don’t post it.

Netiquette – It means respecting other users views and displaying common courtesy when posting your views to online discussion groups. Good behaviour on the internet

Flame Wars – It means when someone says something you don’t like then someone else says something you don’t like then it turns into a big fight with people that you don’t even know then it gets awkward.

Trolls – They are people who send you annoying and mean messages and they constantly do it and it gets annoying and they are hurting your feelings

Communicating Clearly – Not using abbreviation’s, no emoji’s, no caps lock because it looks like you are yelling at someone when your are not

Anonymous – Using another name for your self without their permission and saying you are them.

Once your message is out, it’s out means when someone posts something its out to the world so anyone can see it and comment whatever they feel like saying or want to say and sometimes it can be rude so you have to be careful in what you post and make sure it is appropriate.




Richard Turere TED Talk

The main messages are that the answer is always not violence and that you can make the problems that are small can fix a big problem

When he was making a joke he would always smile or laugh and that would send us a message across to the audience that they could laugh. Richard also had a slideshow going on so you could see what he was talking about

He used a screen with a slideshow with the really descriptive pictures, a microphone so everyone could hear him even if they were sitting at the back of the crowd

He used Humour, eye contact

Passion Project

Gymnastics. My passion is gymnastics I am going to make a film on how to do a front sault/flip. I am going to use my trampoline and I will wear my leotard from training and I will use my computer to film. I will show you the skills you need to do the front sault/flip and how to actually do it. I really want to teach someone else how to do it so they can get better at flipping. You can watch my video at any age but mainly aimed at people that want to get better at flips and tricks

Thomas Suarez TED talk

The main messages are it doesn’t matter how old you are you can make a app at whatever age you like. Making apps is fun. You can make a big deal about making apps like you can make an app club at school all you need to do is find time and be excited in making apps and sometimes students are better at technology than adults.

Thomas got the messages into the audience by making them laugh when he said students are better than adults at technology

The technical support he used was his I pad but he barley looked at it and it didn’t have his full script on it it just had the main information and he had a clicker that changed his slides and to show things up

The presentation techniques were very good eye contact and really good voice and language and body language. He didn’t just stay in the one spot he moved around a bit but not so much that he was not on stage. Only a little bit on stumbling words which is ok and he had his I pad on him and didn’t look at it that much and made the audience enjoyed there time listening to him
