Workplace safety

To keep myself safe at work I will…

– ask questions about something if I don’t know how to do something.

– wear proper footwear to keep myself from slipping

– ask for a shift off if I’m sick or if I’m stressed about something

To keep others safe at work I will…

– ask them if they need help with lifting or getting something if they look like they are struggling

– teach them something if they look confused when they get ordered to do something.

The story that resonates most with me is Matthew’s story because this could happen to me if I’m not careful. Because of the fact that I work at a fast food joint, and their is a deep fryer that could easily burn you. Matthew showed me that if I need help or if my boss asks me to do something risky than I’d need to tell him that it is to dangerous for me. This taught me that I need to be safe with hot things even outside of work. Even recently I was carrying some heavy materials back to the back of the store when I slipped. If it had something hot or the heavy stuff fell on me I could’ve easily been injured.

Week 17 in math 10

This week we learned about systems of linear relations.

We learned how to solve them using various ways: graphing, substitution, and elimination.

The easiest one to use coming from me is substitution because all you have to do is change one into y/x slope-point form then you have what you need.

Example:

 

What literature has taught me about the effects of racism

Racism has affected so many people in this world. Just because you’re black, asian, Muslim or anything for that matter, you don’t deserve any form of racism. For example, in Indian Horse, Saul was taken to a dirty residential school where kids were tormented by nuns and priest and he went solely because he is Indian. At these so called schools he started off by getting scrubbed hard by the nuns because they wanted to get the ‘dirt’ off even though the nuns knew that it was his skin colour. He was beaten if he made a mistake in class and out of class. He was sexually, physically, and mentally abused by the nuns and priest just because he is Indian. He tried to forget all that by playing hockey but he couldn’t escape it. The crowd and other teams called him names. He soon had enough of it and he quit playing. Racism can effect someone’s favourite thing to do just because of the hatred. Racism can effect anything and it has to stop.

Week 15 in math 10

This week we learned about slope-point form.

We learned we could create it with just one coordinate and the slope.

It’s also a really easy way to graph with.

example:

Then you can change it into general form.

Then into slope-y intercept form.
