Staying safe at work

1. 3 things I will do to keep myself safe at work are…

1. Report any incidents that happen

2. Wear the right clothing for the job

3.  Say no when the situation is unsafe or uncomfortable
2.1 thing I will do to keep others safe at work is…

make sure when I am done working everything is put away so my coworkers don’t get injured

Polynomials

In our third lesson of polynomials we learned how to FOIL. Foiling is another method to multiply polynomials using distributive property that’s easy and effective. It makes it easier for you to see exactly what you are multiplying rather than visualizing it in your head.

The method used in the distributive propter can be simplified using the acronym FOIL.

(a + b)(c + d) = ac + ad + bc + bd

F – first term in each bracket

O – outside terms

I – inside terms

L – last term in each bracket

Here are two examples:

(4x + 1)(x – 5)

= 4x^2 – 20x + x – 5

= 4x^2 – 19x -5

(3a + 6b)^2
= (3a + 6b)(3a + 6b)

= 9a^2 + 18ab + 18ab + 36b^2

= 9a^2 + 36ab + 36b^2

Measurement (second half)

In our seventh lesson of measurement we learned how to find the surface area and volume of a rectangular based pyramid. It takes a while and you have to make sure that your formulas are correct to get the right answer. A trick is to write out everything you do. For example you can directly draw the shape of the face it is that you are trying to calculate the area of. This helps to keep track of everything you do and makes it easier to visually see.

Surface Area:

First you have to find the two slant heights of the pyramid. A rectangular based pyramid has two slant heights because the base side lengths are not the same. You find the slant heights by using pythagorean theorem on each triangular face.
Once you find the two slant heights, you find the area of each triangular face. Then you add those to the base area. (Make sure to put the coefficient 2 in front of each triangular face’s area. You do this because it tells you that two of the four triangular faces have the same area.)
You add the each face by writing out how to get the area of each triangular face and then the area of the base. You write them all out side by side and simplify where you can. Lastly you multiply the numbers left after you have simplified.
The number that is left is the surface area of the rectangular prism.
I know this sounds hard, so an example will make it easier to see.

Volume:

To get the volume of a rectangular based pyramid you multiply 1/3 by the area of the base by the height of the pyramid.
You should already have the area of the base from finding the surface area, so we just use that to easily find the volume. (You should be able to do the whole equation on your calculator.)
Here is an example using the same dimensions that I used for finding the surface area above.

 

Measurement (first half)

In our third measurement lesson we learned how to use a micrometer to measure objects. It can be tricky at times but once you get the hand of it it’s pretty easy.

The object that is being measured is placed between the anvil and spindle.
Then the first thing you do is look at the course reading. The value you take is the last fully visible line on the sleeve.
Next you figure out the barrel scale reading by looking at the reference line on the sleeve. The line that it matches up with on the barrel scale is the number that you take. If the line is in the middle of two numbers, you take the number that the line is closest to.
Lastly you add the course reading and the barrel scale reading to get the micrometer reading.
Here is an example along with a picture to show you where all the parts are on a micrometer.

Spoken word

Tittle : Big Brother

He was their for me as a child, as we got older he slowly started to leave, now I never see him. Big brother why, why did you leave. You were on a good path, then down hill. No more coming to my sports or showing up to family events. All I get now are texts once in a while asking me for things. when I try to talk to you, I get shut down. “Why did you leave.” Read with no response, u send you would never leave. When things get hard you turn to you drugs, coming home high. Until that night, that night you were caught. I tried to help but I wasn’t aloud, I was just sent to my room. Night after night, all I heard was yelling outside my room, crying until someone left. Then you were gone for 5 months, didn’t hear anything. Everyone thought I was fine but no, I wasn’t. I don’t talk about my problems or my family, half the time people only know of my sister, because you won’t come around. I know what happened at school, I was so ashamed to show my face after the reputation you left behind. You thought I was disappointed in you but I wasn’t, I just wanted my brother. Drinking and using drugs on a daily you thought it won’t hurt anyone but you were wrong. It hurt your family and the one person that looked up at you. Now I see you once every five months or longer, you think it’s okay. You don’t know how to deal with anything, you turn to your drugs and drinking. Why won’t you realize your not the brother you use to be, your so skinny and you think it’s okay. Your girlfriend talks to me more than you do, you see my friends more than you see me. As soon as someone brings up my name or says something to you about me, you try and pick a fight. “Why are trying to act like a brother, I know you feel like you have to since you left, but you stop.” Is the one message I regret sending to you. I felt extremely bad, and knew right after I sent it I would regret it so much. I apologize right after, even though I was still mad. We didn’t talk for 2 weeks after that, until I got a text from him saying. “ I am sorry, I know you mad at me and that you didn’t mean it.” I was so happy to to hear that from him. I apologize again. “I love you so much” was the first time he has said that to me since I was seven years old. I said it back, and asking if he is coming home soon, even thought I already knew the answer was no. I ask him every time just in case he changes his mind. That was my last conversation with him, until two weeks ago he said he was coming home for a bit. I knew it wasn’t going to happen, and that I shouldn’t keep my hopes up. He didn’t come, then when I got home from Florida. He was their, I was so happy to see him, even though he left 20 minutes after. I still haven’t seen him since. Big brother why, why did you leave.

Reflection

I feel my most successful thing about this project is my creativity on how it looked, and how I put a lot of thought and effort into it. I feel the thing I could change is to check my grammar, and use different words instead of using the same words. Some interesting facts I found interesting were how many there were in the different time periods, how many almost made it but didn’t, and hoe many people helped the black slaves leave. I really liked this project, we were given a good amount of time, and we got to be as creative as we wanted. I really like projects like this, I hope we can do more projects like this. This project and unit think of how bad the black slaves were treated and it gave me a lot of knowledge on the black slaves and how the people that wanted to help them made sure they would make it to their next stop.

Halo by Beyoncé – Song analysis

Analyzing poetry

  1.  Before she met th guy she wrote about, Beyoncé was hurt by a guy before that, he tore down her wall. She let a guy in her life that tore her walls that she built up, that she thought she could trust. He let himself in and hurt her, she shouldn’t  experience the pain again. The right person would cause her that much pain. “Halo” was her dream guy that she know was to good to be true.  He gave her freedom and break free for ther own insecurities. The light from his “halo” follows her everywhere.
  2. composed by Ryan Tedder, Evan Bogart and Beyoncé
  3. Halo is the word she uses as her perfect guy that she knows is to good to be true
  4. Sad, hurt
  5. Non-stress
  6. personification, hyperbole, metaphor
  7. it tells you that don’t let someone break down your walk so easily, and there is no perfect  guy. You have to find someone that cares a lot about you but, there will able be something about them that makes you extremely happy

Lyrics
Remember those walls I built
Well Baby they’re tumbling down
And they didn’t even put up a fight
They didn’t even make a sound

I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo (oh oh)
I’ve got my angel now

It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breaking
It’s the risk that I’m taking
I ain’t never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You’re the only one that I want
‘Think I’m addicted to your light

I swore I’d never fall again
But this don’t even feel like falling
Gravity can’t begin
To pull me back to the ground again

It’s like I’ve been awakened
Every rule I had you breaking
The risk that I’m taking
I’m never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

Everywhere I’m looking now
I’m surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you’re my saving grace

You’re everything I need and more
It’s written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won’t fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
