So for my passion project I was going to make a collage book of all my friends but then it was really hard to try and get every bodies consent so I just decided to continue on with my quote book from last term.

I finished what I wanted to accomplish but I didn’t finish the whole book because that is way to hard so i nearly finished the book. All the quotes I used were from the internet but they were written and decorated by me for all of the quotes I wrote. I didn’t come across many challenges except trying to find as many quotes as I could to put in and trying to find ones that I liked instead of just putting heaps in the book. I got the book from typo and it has no lines so you can see it better. I made the book myself at home decorating it and making it look pretty.

Here is the end product

We had numbers from 1-9 and we could only use then once in each solution. We had to make them equal up to 999 with the numbers going horizontally. The answers did not have to be unique and that means you could just flip a number around but you still have to make sure it equals 999. The hundreds column has to 19, the tens column has to equal 18 and the units column has to equal 8.

What I did when I started playing the problem was I just started experimenting with trial and error and we found 5-10 solutions with no pattern or rule. Then we figured out how many solutions with 3 numbers that equalled 19 and that was 6.

That patterns that I noticed were that the hundreds column had to equal 19, the tens column had to equal 18 and the units column has to equal 8. There is 180 solutions and we think that there is 20 solutions for each number from 1-9. But we still had to figure that out and that was our next problem to try and figure out.

How I broke the problem into to manageable parts was I tried to figure out how many possible solutions their were to equal 19 in the hundreds column with 3 numbers and that was 6. Then the next step was to figure out the next column and just shuffle the numbers around until we got a solution that equalled 999. We checked with a calculator each time so we were 100% spot on with our answers.

How far I got with the investigation was I found like 5 random answers because I was just guessing and checking and we all put our answers on the white board and we found out that you can just swap the numbers around and they are still unique solutions. Then what we tried was we tried to find as many answers as we could with the numbers in the hundreds column in the order 829. I found 15 answers for that number combo but I think their is 5 more to find.

This project was challenging because you think you have got the answer but actually you don’t. Or you get frustrated because you cant find any solutions. Fay’s Nines was really confusing at the start when we first started but when we got into it it wasn’t that confusing anymore.

Here are the pictures of my book

For my last passion project I will be making a collage of me growing up and I am going to give it to my grandma because she would love to look at this when she is missing me.

To make the collage I will have to by a collage book and I will have to find some pictures of me growing up. The things that I will be using to make it is pictures, glue and decorations.

What I am looking forward is to creating a collage because I haven’t done that before and experimenting with where to put all the pictures and decorations.

Here is a picture of a collage

My idea turned out to be amazing. I love my quote book and it is all hand written and decorated.

Some challenges I faced were trying to find a journal with no lines and how to write and decorate it was quite challenging finding something that I liked.

I found a solution by my mum helping me by looking at a couple of stores to choose the best one. Then the next day I started making my quote book. The book took a bit longer than expected but I did not mind that. My mum is going to proof read it after I have finished to make sure I haven’t made any mistakes.

If I were to continue with this project I would make another book.

What we had to do was we had to research a country and write what the flag meant, social behaviours, religion and customs.

The differences are:

The flag is different of course because every countries flag is different. The flag is a white banner whose centre contains a red circle represents the rising sun.

The foods in Japan are really good and also very different. The most famous food in Japan is obviously sushi. What the Japanese do in public is eat while walking. In Japan that is quite rude.

The sports are very different especially Sumo Wrestling. They take it very seriously and very competitive about it. They start professional training at 15 years old.

The similarities are:

The men wear just comforting clothes and business men wear suits just like business men in Australia. In Australia the men just wear any clothes they want just like Japan.

The food in Japan is a bit different but some of it is the same like we have sushi and some other foods.

If I lived in Japan I would definitely love to live there. The thing I would find most difficult is learning the language and trying to understand people. The thing I would find interesting is trying all the foods and trying to get around to all the places. I would definitely live in Japan.

Here is a picture of the investigation I did.

The film was about people getting bullied online and she thought that there was a boy as young as her, but he was actually an adult trying to find out all her personal information and going to steal her from her parents and kidnap her basically. What you should do next time is never trust online people unless you meet them in person.

Kieran was definitely addicted to video games and by the age of 15 he had to see a doctor to help him forget about playing video games and now he was trying to take a little girl away from her family and he was lying to the lost princess and then when Kieran went to meet the lost princess and then Kieran went to jail from the concert because its a kid only concert.

They finally ended up resolving the problem by never trusting anyone online even if they lie that they are 13  but they are actually like 40 and there profile picture can most of the time be fake.it just means that people could be lying in this world and we need to watch what we do and say.

They could have been a better person and not try to track someone’s personal information down and take them away from their family. You want to be the strong person and not be mean, bully and play games with random people. but don’t try to track people down be the nice one.

The message is to never lie to someone online also never trust someone unless you know them or have met them in person.

The activity was to make and look at 5 buildings which were shown as a table. When I say make I mean we had to make the building on a 4 by 4 grid. Then we had to draw the front and side view of what we could see. To draw the views well for the front view we had to get down onto our knees and look at the building at eye level. I did the same thing for the side view.

The next task was to make a building on the investigation board which these views and uses exactly 15 blocks. Then you need to add blocks one by one to find the maximum. next you need to remove one block at a time to find the minimum. Here are some pictures.

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.

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.
