Gauss beat the teacher

Today i did this maths problem which you do 1+2+3 and so on to 100. i did it on a calculator on my computer 1+2+4+5+6+7+8+9+10=55 and then every 10 equals 55 so on the calculator 55+155+255+355+455+555+655+755+855+955=5050 

here is the calculator working out and i think that this is the right answer and it was a smipler version and i used the strategy break the problem into manageable parts. i thought that this was a really cool problem and i really enjoyed it.

I am looking forward to  having some fun filming and getting some really cool footage. I am hoping to get some photos as well. The message is that i like to swim. My project is for people who like swimming and enjoy it. I hope you enjoy my passion project in the end.

The Lost Princess

 

 

 

 

What is the problem she encountered

Lucy is a teenage girl who got her phone stolen and the bullies talked on her accounts and said mean things on her social media. they sent mean things on her account. she told her dad about what happened and her dad called the police about it.  This really hurt lucy because no one wanted to be friends with her.  the bullies really hurt lucys feelings because the bullies were being very mean on social media. Lucy told her dad and he called the police. told her dad earlier and the problem would have been resolved earlier. the message that i took away from this story is always log out of social media before getting of phone and never share your passwords.

How did it negatively affect their lives

how did the issue get resolved

What could they have done differently

What is the biggest message that you take away from their story

feedback passion project

For my passion project i decided to do nippers and i was going to do me doing nippers on a film but we didn’t have time to get down and it was to cold to get in so i put some warm clothes on and we went down to the waterfront and i did the start and the end with me talking. i decided to do memories of my nippers over the years.

i got my parents to watch my film and they thought that it was really good but the music got a little bit to loud at points and you couldn’t hear my P.T.C.

Term 2 Reflection

This term we have done a lot of things. It has Been so BUSY we have done TED talks and almost finished our StoryClip. we did our first passion projects. They were so fun to do but I had to change mine because i didn’t have time to get down to the beach so i made it memories of my nippers over the years.

TED Talks my ted talk is on Palm oil and how it is killing the orangutans and it needs to stop fast otherwise orangutans will become extinct and many other species as well .

#AMAZE_US we were asked to choose from these apps and make a totorial

  • Adobe Character Animator CC (amazingly powerful live animation software)
  • Adobe Photoshop (so you can create animated characters)
  • Adobe Illustrator (graphic design)
  • Storyboard That (online program for digital storytelling)

i choose storyboard that for my topic first I just researched and found out what the app was all about. it was really cool cause you got to tell a story in a comic book way.

MY THREE GOALS FOR NEXT TERM!!!!

  • number 1 is that i want to be more organised because my locker is a mess and i can’t find anything when i need it.
  • number 2 adding more detail in my seeds
  • number 3 getting more pieces on the wall.

 

boy overboard

Boy overboard is about a boy called Jamal and he loves to play soccer with his sister but in Afghanistan girls are not aloud to play soccer. They have to move by boat to Australia and they meet people on the boat they never actually get to Australia. There parents get on to a different boat and there is a whole drama about did there boat sink did there parents die. this book is an adventure/culture.

I liked the where they got separated from there parents when they were getting on the boat. I didn’t like the end because they never got to Australia. This was a really good book and i would recommend it to people who like culture and adventure storys. It was really nice and some parts were emtional but i thought it was good. This book  is by Morris Gleitzman.

editing passion project

 What editing software/app did you use?

I used movie maker because I was having trouble with premire pro. This worked out well for me.

Did you try something new?

I used a phone to take the videos of me. I faded the music in and out which was cool.

If so, what? Did you learn anything new about editing?

I learnt that it can make your piece so much better it sounds much better because it doesn’t just jump in at times when i am speaking.

win at the fair

In project maths we have been working on win at the fair and seeing if it would be good to have win at the fair. We were asked to record our thinking. We compared 6A and 6C data. It was really cool to see the difference.

Here is a picture from maths 300

We were asked to try and make it better we were given a copy to fill out here is my one.

Me ella tried this game board sence it has a $0 in the middle you normally get that this is our data

We had 10 rounds 9 of them were $0 and 1 of them was 20cents. We changed it to 50 cents per roll and $2 per roll. This worked really well. I couldn’t do the $0 in the middle because on the software only had the numbers around the edges

Here are some photos of my working.

 

These are the photos of my work. I changed the board and then tested the data and it was really cool to watch because we tested 1000 rounds. And my data was pretty good as you can see here. the data shows the average payout and the total. I enjoyed this task and had lots of fun doing it.

 

Birke Baehr

Birke’s passion that he really loves is trying to stop farmers treating the food right. i really liked this ted talk because he really put lots of facts into it and he was really good at getting the audience involved with his ted talk which is really important because you don’t wan’t to have the audience to get bored. i thought he could improve on not moving his hands as What are some of the successes that you have had in producing your project? What have been some challenges that you have had to overcome during the process? How did you overcome the challenges?much and shaking his head because he did that way to much and at some parts he should have slowed his voice down again. he wanted to be a football player but now he wants to be a organic farmer. at the end his message was to check where your meat is coming from.
