COL Interview

COL Interview

I interviewed Brad Strelau who is the pastor at CA Church:Port Campus in Port Coquitlam. It is his job to prepare a sermon for each Sunday along with helping others through tough times. He is also asked to speak at weddings and funerals. I chose to interview this individual because I am interested in this job; it has qualities that I believe suit me.

I continue to believe that this job would suit me, there are ups and downs to this employment but the ups would be greater than the downs.

Q: Why are you passionate about your job?
I love that I am able to walk with people through the big events of their lives. I get to be a part of marriages, child dedications, but also hospital visits and funerals.


Q: What obstacles have you faced to get where you are today?
I have my education in biblical studies and have spent many years volunteering locally and in other countries.


Q: What advice would you pass on to someone interested in what you are doing?

Make sure you have your family as first priority! Doing pastoral work can be very stressful physically, spiritually, and emotionally. If you are not careful to carefully structure your time, it can steal from family



Q: Would you be open to further contact Riverside students and if so, how can someone contact you?


Q: What is the worst part of your job?
Doing funerals for tragic deaths; (i.e. child with cancer, accident, fentanyl, etc)


Q: Do you think I would do well at this job? Be honest.
Not at 14, but I definitely see the potential for ministry in the future. You have the ability to sympathize and show genuine care for others.

What Pain Reliever Dissolves the Quickest?

Partners: Olivia Gale, RuoMin Zhang, Megan Kydd


The objectives for the lab is to see which pain reliever dissolves the quickest, along with proving M. Horton’s son wrong about which one he said works the quickest.


  • Beaker
  • 5 test tubes
  • Dropper
  • Vinegar
  • Heating Pad


  • Aspirin
  • Advil Liquid Gel
  • Acetaminophen
  • Tylenol
  • Motrin


  • Separated vinegar into 5 test tubes
  • Put Water into a beaker
  • Turn on the hot plate until it is 37 degrees
  • Heat up test tubes along with vinegar
  • Remove test tubes and insert pills
  • Wait to see which one dissolves first
  • Clean up

Observations and Results

First Aspirin
Second Acetaminophen
Third Tylenol
Fourth Motril
Fifth Advil



We did meet our objectives by knowing that Aspirin and Acetaminophen were very quick followed by the other, except the Advil which did nothing. By doing this, we have found an argument against M. Horton’s son on Advil being the best.

Everything I know about polynomials

Vocabulary of polynomials

Coefficient: Number before a variable

Base: The variable after a coefficient

Variable: An unknown number shown by a letter

Term: A number or variable/the sum of a number and variable

Like terms: Two or more terms with the same base

Polynomials: An expression made up of terms that are added or subtracted

Monomial: 1 term | 6x2

Binomial:   2 terms | 3a2 – 5

Trinomial:  3 terms | –w2 – 5w + 1

Polynomial: 4+ terms | 2s2t2 + st + 7t – 4



Only like terms can be added

(1x + 2x2 – 3x)+(1x + 3x2 + 2x)

1x, 3x, 1x and 2x are like terms

1x + 3x +1x + 2x = 7x

2x2  and 3x2 are like terms

2x2 + 3x2  = 5x2

= 7x + 5x2



Only like terms can be subtracted

(4x – 3x2)-(1x2 + 2x)

= 4x – 2x = 2x

= 3x2 – 1x2  = 2x2

= 2x – 2x2



Using the distributive property, we multiply the monomial with each term in the polinomial.

(3x)(3x x 2x x 5x)

Multiply each term by the monomial

(9x2 + 6x2 + 15x)



Distributive property still applies

\frac{6x + 4x}{2x}

6x ÷ 2x = 3

4x ÷ 2x = 2
