Apron project

two things that I’m proud of are the pockets and the lace at the bottom of my apron

one thing that I wish I’ve done better would be the strap for the waist

If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
Uh oh uh oh
Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother
She’ll know I’m safe with you when
She stands under my colours, oh and
Life ain’t always what you think it oughta be, no
Ain’t even grey, but she buries her baby
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well, I’ve had just enough time
If I die young bury me in satin.
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well I’ve had just enough time
And I’ll be wearing white when I come into your kingdom
I’m as green as the ring on my little cold finger
I’ve never known the lovin’ of a man
But it sure felt nice when he was holding my hand
There’s a boy here in town says he’ll love me forever
Who would have thought forever could be severed by
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well I’ve had just enough time
So put on your best boys and I’ll wear my pearls
What I never did is done
A penny for my thoughts, oh no I’ll sell them for a dollar
They’re worth so much more after I’m a goner
And maybe then you’ll hear the words I been singin’
Funny when you’re dead how people start listenin’
If I die young bury me in satin
Lay me down on a bed of roses
Sink me in the river at dawn
Send me away with the words of a love song
Uh oh (uh oh)
The ballad of a dove
Go with peace and love
Gather up your tears, keep ’em in your pocket
Save ’em for a time when your really gonna need ’em oh
The sharp knife of a short life,
Well I’ve had just enough time
So put on your best boys, and I’ll wear my pearls

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Identities

Unfair Judgment

       How many people are harmed because of being judged by others every day? According to Physiology Today website, the reality is that of us misjudge people, often based on what they look like, what they are wearing, or perhaps what they sound like. My objectivity survey revealed that 75 percent of the class or workshop participants responded that they misjudged someone at least once a month or more. The survey also found that 23.4 percent said they misjudged someone based on their appearance two or three times per month; 9.4 percent said once a month; 17.4 percent said two or three times per week; and 4.7 percent said they misjudged someone, simply based on their appearance, every day. People just judge others (peoples) by the way they look without even knowing them. The short story, “identities”, by W.D Valgardson, is about a wealthy man who had not shaven recently and was wearing jeans and a jacket. He decided to go for a drive around the area in his Mercedes Benz. He has traveled into the unknown and outside of his comfort zone. He was lost in a dangerous looking neighborhood. He started to feel fear until he noticed a police officer following him. The man pulled his car over and he got out of his car. The police officer thought he was a thief because he looked rough. The wealthy man believed that the cop would help him. The man went to take out his ID out of his pocket, but it ended up shooting the man as the cop assumed the man was grabbing a gun out of his pocket. The police officer was not justified when he killed the man. The cop judged the man because he was unshaven in blue jeans which represented his mistaken identity categorized. He was an inexperienced and nervous police officer, who ended up shooting the man, with no apparent evidence. The cop didn’t say anything to the man before he shoots the man like put your hands up or anything else. For instance, the police officer could have used other things or methods before he killed the man. “When the inexperienced officer who is nervous because of the neighborhood, who is suspicious because of the car because he has been trained to see an unshaven man in blue jeans as a potential thief and not as a probable owner, orders him to halt, he is surprised.” It is stated that the police officer is inexperienced and was nervous. He has been trained to stereotype by appearance.

The man was completely innocent and was trying to identify himself. He went to grab his ID out of his pocket; however, the inexperienced, nervous cop was quick to stereotype this unshaven man in blue jeans and ended up shooting the man. The police officer was not justified.  he was the one who made a wrong move. No one should have the right to judge another’s identity.

     

Week 19 – Top 5 Things I learned in precalculus 11

This year in Precalculus 11 I learned so many things and different things in each unit. Some of the units were a little bit hard and some of the units were easy.  Here are the top things I’ve learned in precalculus 11.

  1. The first thing in the top five is multiplying and dividing rational expression. It’s used for simplifying products and quotients of rational expression. Here is an example:

2. The second thing in the top five is the arithmetic series. It’s used to determine the sum of n term of an arithmetic series, then solve related problems. Here is an example:

3. The third thing in the top five is using special triangles. It’s used to explore the condition for which given information is sufficient to construct a unique triangle. For example:

4. The fourth thing in the top five is solving systems of equations algebraically. Use algebraic strategies to solve linear quadratic system and quadratic-quadratic system. For example:

5. The fifth thing in the top five is multiplying and dividing radical expressions. It’s used to simplify products and quotients of radical expression. Here is an example:

Week 18 – precalculus 11

This week in precalculus 11 I learned about cosine law. Cosine Law is to solve triangles that are not right triangles. We should know that we use the sine law when we have given two angles and one side, or two sides and a non-included angle, and we use the cosine law when we are given three sides, or two sides and the included angle.

The formula for cosine law is:

{a^2} = {b^2} + {c^2} – 2bc cosA

Here is an example:

Week 17 – precalculus 11

This week in precalculus 11 I learned about Sine Law.  I learned about trigonometry in grade 10 but this year we expand it a little bit more. Sine Law is to solve problems in triangles that are not right triangles. The formula for sine Law is:

Missing side: \frac{a}{sin A} = \frac{b}{sin B} = \frac{c}{sin C}

And

missing angle:\frac{sin A}{a} = \frac{sin B}{b} = \frac{sin C}{c}

Here is an example:

 

Week 16 – precalculus 11

This week in pre-calculus 11 I learned about rational equations. Rational equations have at least one fraction whose numerator and denominator are variable. Two ways of solving rational equation; one way is cross to multiply when there are just 2 fractions and with an equal sign in between, the other way is to multiply all terms by denominators when there are more than 2 fractions.

Here is an Example:

Week 15 – precalculus 11

This week in pre-calculus 11, I learned about multiplying and dividing rational expression. Actually, I learned a basic way of multiplying and dividing rational expression in grade nine and ten, but this year it got a little bit complicated and we expanded more to it.

Here is an example:
