Gilligan’s point can be seen in children’s free play. When boys are confronted with a conflict involving fairness they tend to argue it out or take their ball and go home. On the other hand, girls faced with conflict over fairness will try to resolve the issue through compromise. But if compromise fails, girls will generally change the activity rather than disband the group (Cyrus, 1993).

Math blog post Week 10// Self assessment – Critical thinking

This week, i went over 3 things that i forgot how to do. The first one i did was rationalizing radicals. I knew the general idea of this, but i forgot how you have to multiply the conjugate making it a zero pair rather than multiplying by the same thing. For my second one, i did arithmetic sequences, i didn’t forget how to do it, it was just a memory refresher. And for the last one, i did solving discriminant which tells me how many roots i have and this was confusing for me on the test, because i would divide it by 2a.

Math blog post week 9

This week in math, I learned how to find the X intercepts in the standard form. I learned this late, but i still learned it in week 9. So to find the X intercepts we have to go back to our last chapter Solving for quadradics. First you would isolate to make X by itself so i subtracted by 1, then after that i sqaure rooted everything to get rid of the brackets, the from there i added 2 to the other side make it 2+/- square root of 1.

Math blog post week 8

This week in math, we learned how to use the X intercepts to find the Line of symmetry. To find the LOS, you take both X intercepts and you add them together then divide by 2. So in the picture below, the X intercepts are -4,0 and 2,0. 2-4/2= -1. Thats the line of symmetry.

Math blog post week 7

This week in Pre calc 11, I learned how to graph the vertex. I learned that when you are given the standard form, you can graph the vertex. In the brackets, you have the X value but a cool thing is that whatever number is in there, you change the sybol. So if it is -3 it really means +3. and the number right outside the brackets is the Y value; so given y=a(x-3)+3, we can tell that we need to graph (3,3) and that is our vertex.

 

 

 

Lord of the Flies- Island Description

(The following are quotes based on the setting of Lord of the Flies)

Shape of the island

“It was roughly boat-shaped: humped near this end with behind them the jumbled descent to the shore.”

Physical appearance of the island

“A deep, harsh note boomed under the palms, spread through the intricacies of the forest and echoed back from the pink granite of the mountain.”

Different spots on the island

“Simon turned away from them and went where the just perceptible path led him.”

The home of the “beastie”

“They swarmed across the bridge and soon were climb- ing and shouting.”

Where the shelters are built

“The first thing we ought to have made was shelters down there by the beach.”

Scar on the island

““there were the splintered trunks and then the drag, leaving only a fringe of palm between thescar and the sea.”

Jungle

“Trees, forced by the damp heat, found too little soil for full growth, fell early and decayed: creepers cra- dled them, and new saplings searched a way up.”

what covers the island

“On either side rocks, cliffs, treetops and a steep slope: forward there, the length of the boat, a tamer descent, tree-clad, with hints of pink: and then the jungly flat of the island, dense green, but drawn at the end to a pink tail” (38)

Where Piggy  and Ralph find the conch

“Ralph had stopped smiling and was pointing into the lagoon. Something
creamy lay among the ferny weeds.” (Pg. 18)

The reef

“The reef enclosed more than one side of the island, lying perhaps a mile out and parallel to what they now thought of as their beach” (38)

Week 5 Blog Post

This week in Pre Calculus, we learned how to factor trinomials.

The first step is to multiply the first term with the third term

The second step, is to find all factors in that product that when you add or subtract = to the second term.

Once that’s done you can rewrite the formula, coming up with two binomials.

If there are any terms you can simplify in the binomials you take them out, and the two binomials should be the same.

The leftovers makes one binomial and the other makes one too.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

English 11

Mr. Barazzuol

Walter Fighting his Dreams

“He took one last drag on his cigarette and snapped it away. Then with that faint, fleeting smile playing about his lips, he faced the firing squad; erect and motionless, proud and disdainful, Walter Mitty the Undefeated, inscrutable to the last.”

Although Walter Mitty smokes cigarettes, he knows it is bad for his health. Walter Mitty is trying to quit smoking, his morals are exploding; screaming at him to quit.

Walter knows that if he doesn’t quit, all his dreams, future and his charming wife will be gone right before his eyes. He worries he will lose his family the most, “If my wife leaves me, no one will stop me from smoking”.

“WALTER! When will you stop smoking, for heavens sake!” Said Mrs. Mitty anxiously.

“Honey, just give me some time” Walter sounded unconvincing.

Walter was inscrutable, never understanding why it was so hard for him to quit smoking; he tries his hardest but it just isn’t good enough. Hesitantly, but surely, he cuts down on the cigarettes; day by day he thinks less about smoking. His dreams started to become more realistic, with characteristics he has never imagined himself having were appearing in his dreams. Walter was thinking about the future; how dark and scary it was, he decided it was too much for one day. Anxiously pulling out a cigarette, sparking it took many tries like flint and steel. As he’s about to take the first drag…

“Walter! You there?… Come join us, we’re working on your brand-new house right now! We’ve come so far!” Said a contractor Mitty had hired.

“Glad to hear, you guys have impressed with this beautiful house, it is outstanding. Thank you all so much” Mitty said sympathetically.

Mitty had always dreamt of having a new house, living with his wife, and always dreaming about the day he quits smoking. Mitty was tired, stressed so like usual he takes his cigarette while sitting down outside of the new house. Mitty’s lighter wasn’t working, even after 4 strikes; something wasn’t right the cigarette light and he began to dream. In the midst of Mitty’s dream, he hears a loud shriek. “What’s all this ruckus for!” Mitty shouted at his wife.

“MITTY, HELP ME” Mrs. Mitty screaming for her life.

All the ruckus, and debris surrounding her just wasn’t reachable for Mitty. Mitty was in distraught. Mitty had tried everything he could, he had enough it; instead of deeply sorrowing over his wife he wanted to get out and save his own life, not willing to lose his own.

The houses uproars through the fierce and firey house, pandemonium broke loose my mind was deteriorating; feeling like my lungs were about to explode, “If only I had quit smoking, I’ve lost my beautiful wife and house for this” Mitty thought to himself. The fire making his house lungs crumble, making him collapse. As the fires got closer and closer, Mitty had woken up in agony. Before Mitty could even smoke, he dropped his cigarette running towards his wife and house.

 

Week 4 Blog Post

This week in Math 11 Pre Calculus, we learned how to add and subtract radicals. I learned that you can only add or subtract radicals if they have the same radicand, if they don’t then you can’t add or subtract them. If they’re in whole radical that can be simplified, simplify it.

\sqrt{48} + \sqrt{75}+ \sqrt{4}-\sqrt{64}

Knowing what we know, we need to simplify the radicals to make them into a mixed radical.

4\sqrt{3}+ 5\sqrt{3}+ 2-8

After this step, we gather all like terms and we add and subtract.

so our answer would be 9\sqrt{3}-6
