Voici notre débat, Ashiana est personne A et Isabelle est personne B. On a fait 3 profils. Ashiana a fait Amor de Cosmos, qui a gagné son pouvoir politique grâce à son programme anti-asiatique, Isabelle a fait Un immigrant récent de la Chine, qui est arrivé en C-B au moment où tout commence à changer épuis on a fini avec Ashiana qui parle a propos de Un Sino-Canadien qui avait le droit de vote, mais à qui on a enlevé ce droit après que la C-B s’est joint au Dominion du Canada.

**Topic: **The topic that I chose for my Inquiry was “calculating emotions” this to me is something that everyone can relate to, as the goal with our inquiry was to find math in a topic that isn’t considered mathematical. I thought that our emotions are something that is relevant to every single person no matter their math background.

**Main Questions: **In my inquiry I talked about the makeup of emotions, how our brains respond to emotions, dopamine, examples of emotional equations {we did an interactive piece where everyone had the opportunity to calculate the ration of their anxieties and fears, and finally I talked about how subjective emotions are and the chaos theory of how sensitive these equations are.

**Further Questions and Extension: **While doing my Inquiry project I became very interested in a lot of branches of emotions and how math can be related in a bunch of different aspects, I came up with the further questions; is it possible to measure the intensity of an emotion?, how many emotions is it possible to feel at once?, how can we chemically relieve addiction and fit our medications specifically to a person and their ratio of emotions? and finally, with all the information we have about a persons life is it possible to calculate how someone is going to feel after a certain experience. My dad actually got me a book on emotions after my project and I have been looking through it and have developed some even further questions based on what I have read; How has the media affected the intensity of our emotions? Are the generations becoming more or less sensitive, how and why?

In math class, we were asked to graph Santa on desmos. This is the Santa that I created using different linear relations and functions, by restricting the domain and range I was able to place the shapes in a layout to create a Santa!

These are the expressions used to create the face:

•The first one x squared plus y squared is a linear relation, not a function used to create the circle. In order to add color, I changed the equal sign to make it an inequality. I chose 9 as the inequality for the size of the face.

•The nose, I left at the origin and just created an oval making the coefficient y not equal to the x coefficient and left it not filled in.

•For both the eys I made a small circle and a larger oval to make them a little more realistic. I changed the quadrant of the circle by adding x-1 to the right side and x+1 to the left quadrant to make the eyes on different sides. I made sure they were the exact same numbers to make sure they were symmetrical and proportionally equal.

•For the smile, I used a quadratic function to create a parabola and chose the origin of -2 by adding it as the constant of the equation. For the range, I stopped it at -1 to restrict the smile so that it’s not too high up on the face.

Now, for the add – on’s to the face.

•For the hat, I used an upside-down parabola where x squared equals negative y instead of positive. The constant negative 8 was chosen for the height of the hat. I made the range 2 so that it came up just to the forehead of the shape of the face.

•Then for the line to close up the shape of the hat I just went y=2 so that a horizontal line appeared on the y2 axis. Making sure to add restrictions at -2.5 and 2.5 on either side of the face.

•For the pom-pom at the top of the hat, I created a ball right down the middle of the x-axis and on 9 of the y-axis so it rests just above the hat.

•Finally, for the beard, I made a parabola with the origin of -8 so that it went lower. I made sure to restrict it to a range of -1 so it stops at a good point on the sides of the face.

After doing this activity I feel much more confident with functions and relations and now know mentally what a function would look like if I were to graph it.
