Tech Team December Reflection

What are some things you have learned and/or tasks you have accomplished so far this semester? Explain thoroughly (Use videos, pictures, upload materials etc. as evidence of learning in your blog)

What aspects of your work are successful? Explain why.

The spoken word went pretty well, we got the stream going and we’ll just get better at it

What aspects of your work are challenging? Explain why.

Getting the Audio and OBS to work was hard, because it was a new program for me that i’d never used before

What steps did you take to overcome these challenges / what adjustments did you need to make

We got help from the people who manage the audio for the spoken word to help us out. We also changed to using OBS this year instead of wirecast as it works a lot better(also, wire cast has a watermark)

Is there anything you can do improve? (with your approach to the project, or altering the project)

I definitely need to get more comfortable with the platform so i’ll be able to help my team more, its no lie that I wasn’t… lets say instrumental to the success of our group.

Do you have any feedback or suggestions, as we move forward, that could help the Tech Team meet the needs of our school and staff / be more effective? (Provide specific examples)

I’m glad the waves back upstairs instead of in the library, I don’t know maybe it will be good in the library but I feel convenience is an important aspect of the wave, also visibility, I mean I haven’t looked at the plans of the new library and I’m sure it’ll be really great, but it kinda just makes sense that the wave would be in an open and visible area, like where it is now.

Desmos Art Function Post 2018

The Character

Here is the caricature i made of myself on the desmos site using functions, if you squint your eyes ever so slightly you can just see the resemblance

This was pretty difficult at first, desmos is a great site but making a human person using it was very challenging, sometimes it felt like no matter what I tried that nothing would work, I ended up coming up with some crazy equations that I couldn’t explain if I tried. One of my aha moments was when Ms. MacArthur told me how to do the domain and range on desmos(I literally just put the wrong bracket in) afterwards though, it was much easier to figure out new equations.  I feel like this assignment drilled into my head which graphs are related to which functions, as a result I feel like i understand functions better.

Here are the equations

Tech Team Project

Streaming Team

a) Briefly describe your new and improved idea, by incorporating ideas and/or feedback.

We hope to archive more events so we and others can look back on it. We also want to stream more important things for the school.

b) Answer the following questions:

– What problems might we run into?

Camera/recording troubles

– What skills do we need to complete this project? How can we attain these skills?

Some practice with the recording device would be handy to get us all (me specifically) acquainted more so with the device

c) Create a brief timeline of key things that need to happen to ensure successful completion of your project. What happens next?

  1. learn how to use the recording device better
  2. find events to stream
  3. stream them

Graphing Story

Today in math ten, our job was to take a video of one of us doing something, then graph it.

Here’s Liam walking up and down the stairs



Relation in words: The height of Liam’s waist to how many seconds it takes him to climb the stairs

Independent variable: The height of Liam’s waist (feet)

Dependent variable: Time (seconds)

The Input: Time

X intercept:  none

Y intercept: (0,3)

The Output: Height of Liam’s waist

The Domain Values: 

The Range Values:
