CALZONES LAB

       Out of all the labs we did in October, I chose the Calzone lab because in my opinion it was the most exciting and “cooking-intensive” lab. We were also pretty familiar with each other in our new group, which I think helped us since we were more productive and finished things faster. I really enjoyed the lab. The Calzones turned out really big, and there was a lot to eat! They were very tasty and smelled good too. It was also fun making the filling separately, then putting it in and folding it over before putting it in the oven.

       Despite what happened in the oven, it turned out to my liking. When we put it in the oven, mine exploded in a spot and started to act like a volcano, but in the end it didn’t really lose much filling, and tasted pretty good! The only thing that was a bummer was cleaning off the pan after it exploded. I think it helped that it didn’t explode in the middle, but more off to the side. I think that our group worked pretty well together. Sometimes there is next to no communication but we still end up achieving a good product, and still work as a team. If I was to make this again, I would add more filling to the ends, since in mine, near the end there was next to no filling. I think to fix this I would need to add more filling to the ends, even if it looks like it would not close. Over all, this was by far my favourite lab.

APPLE STRUDEL LAB REFLECTION:

Why did you choose to reflect on this lab?

I chose to reflect off this because it was one of the more earlier labs that I’ve done, and it would be good to look
bad on whats happened. I personally think that the lab went very good, and that it had a lot of things that were pretty
great, and some things that could be improved

Did you enjoy the lab?

Yes. For me, it was a enjoyable experience (obviously because I got to eat the Apple Strudel after), and also because the
process  of making it was very hands on and precise. Also you did it in partners, which made it better since your both constantly
doing something instead of just being in a group of 4.

Did your product turn out the way you had hoped?

Unexpectedly, yes. We messed up with the cinnamon and the sugar, accidentally putting it in the dough mixture, instead of
sprinkling it on the apples inside. But the final product was very, very good. In fact, I think I would rather make it that way since
not every bite would have cinnamon in it if it was sprinkled on the apples.

Did your group work well together during the lab?

Yes. We were split up into pares, and each pare split an apple strudel. We still worked together in cleaning up the lab area, and getting
everything done on-time. We got out on time too, which nowadays we cut it pretty close. We also managed to both put our apple strudels
in the oven at the same time.

If you were to do this lab again, what would you do differently?

Honestly, I don’t really think that I would do anything different, besides maybe fixing our mess up, but that kind of made the recipe/final
product better.(in my opinion). But I think that I would try better or take more time on wrappingit, since I think we put to much apples in
it and it kinda bulged out in the middle, but other then that it was good.

 

Math 10 Week 14

This week in math I learned how to find the length of a line segment using points.

example: A(2,7) to B(5,7)

For this, I know that the points are ordered (x,y), so the y value does not change. The x value however, is not the same in both points.
For point A, x=2, and for point B, x=5. The length of the line is 3.

A more complex example would be; P(-6,6), Q(-6,-10), and R(8,-10).

this is what it would look like on a grid.

If you were going to have to find the distance from P to R, you will need to fine the other 2 lines, Q to R and P to Q in order to find the distance from P to R.
You can get PQ and QR from looking at the graph, with the length of PQ being 16 and QR being 14. Next, to find the distance from P to R you would use Pythagoras theorem. 16 squared is 256, and 14 squared is 196. 256+196=452. the square root of 452 is 21.260. But if the question is asking for an exact value that wont work. so you will need to factor 452.

 

that is what PR would equal as an EXACT value.
