Math 10 – Week 13

Point Slope Form

I would say that point slope is my favorite equation for a line. It tells you where a nice point is, what the slope is, and it looks best in my opinion.

To graph this type of equation you’ll need to start at the nice point, and use the slope to create the line.

 

Math 10 – Week 12

What Is Slope?

The slope of a line represents how steep the line is on the graph. To find the slope, you’ll need to identify the nice points (Whole numbers) on the line (at least 2).

Now you need to find the rise and run that is required to get from 1 point to the next (rise before run). After you know your rise and run, you can put it in a fraction (rise over run). This fraction will be your slope (simplify if possible). Also we use the letter m for slope.

In this example we have a rise of 5 and a run of 1. So our slope will be 5 (m = 5).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Make sure to read left to right, because sometimes you’ll come across a negative slope. The difference between positive and negative slopes is that a positive slope is going up and a negative slope is going down (reading from left to right)

In this example, the rise is -1 and the run is 1, so the slope will be -1 (m = -1)

How to Find the Distance Between 2 Points on a Graph

We have 2 points ( (2,4) and (6,4), to find the distance between these 2 lines we’ll need to see if any of the x or y values are the same. If they are, it makes your job in finding the distance easier. In this example, our y values are the same, so all we have to do is subtract 2 from 6 (6 – 2) and well get 4. So the distance between these 2 points will be 4.

 

If the line is not perfectly vertical or horizontal, Finding the distance will take a bit longer

in this graph, we have points at (1,1.5) and (2,4). If you look closely, you’ll see a right triangle like this

So all we have to do is some Pythagorean theorem and we can find our answer.

Cell story

Hi, i’m a thrombocyte.

I’m not big or strong, but I am very important. I live in the blood, chilling there before i need to work. I’m the smallest cell in the blood and my job is to create blood clots. Compared to the other cells in the blood, I am extremely small. I’m super important because when the host is losing blood at a rapid rate, I can make clots to prevent all the blood to escape.

 

Reflection

  1. I had to research “what are thrombocytes?”, “what do thrombocytes do?”, and “what do thrombocytes look like”.
  2. Google
  3. Google
  4. I looked into the source and looked at various different sources to confirm the information was correct
  5. Pretty good, im not sure

 

Solution Fluency

  1. What do i want my armour to look like for the wooden sword fight in a few weeks
  • Light armour to protect my arms and legs
  • Heavy armour that prevents myself from being hurt at all
  • Heavy armour in a few places
  • Arms and legs only

     3) Arms and legs armour only: Heavy armour that covers most of my arms and legs. Right arm is a super small shield that can be used as a weapon if the sword is dropped. Bigger shield on left hand for even more protection against my enemy

 

     4) Over the next few months i will learn more about sword fighting and finish the product with the most defence within the light weight category of armour. Currently 1 piece (the really small shield) has been made and is ready for combat. After the sword fight i will improve on it and make it perfect.

 

Me in the Future: All my Armour is now perfect after testing and experimenting of various designs and techniques
