Explanation of all the steps:

A little lego guy (A) is released from a wooden tower down a zip line and hits the marble ball (B) down the wooden ramp (C) after the ball goes to the end of the wooden ramp it will fall into the paper cup (D) and will come out the bottom which will make it land on the set mous trap (E) once the mouse trap goes off it will hit the dominos (F) and they will all fall which will cause the marble (G) on the wood ramp to roll down and hit the next set of dominos (H) once they go off they will cause the tennis ball (I) to fall into the plastic cup (J) and out of the bottom hole onto a binder/ ramp (K) which will then hit the upside down bottle (L) at the end forcing it to be hit off the chair and onto the ground where the duck tape will catch it and make it land on its cap.

Energy Transfers:
(A) Kinetic to (gravitational) Potential
When the lego man is going down (kinetic) the zip line he stops ( potential) when he hits the marble.

(E) Kinetic to Sound/ Elastic

When the marble falls (kinetic) onto the mouse trap it creates a loud sound (sound).

When the marble falls (kinetic) onto the mouse trap it the spring (elastic) closes the mouse trap.
(G)Potential to Kinetic

When the marble is still (potential) It is then hit by the dominos causing it to move (kinetic) down the ramp.

The babies name is Junior he has dark blue eyes, a cleft chin, curly black hair, he is dark skinned, and has a regular nose. These traits were given by his parents because they had a lot of these traits.

3. Answer the following questions:

a. How does the coin flip relate to the probability of inheriting genetic conditions?

Its 50/50 like how the the genes are 50/50 between parents

b. How does this simulation accurately represent or not represent real life?

It accurately represents the chances of getting each gene. It shows the chance of getting different traits on a baby which represents how a baby might be in real life off dominant genes.

c. Did you identify any prejudices you might have about what traits you find “desirable”? Where do you think these prejudices come from?

I had prejudices as I did not like the very pointy chin with square head. I think these prejudices come from our idea of normal and/or what looks good

 

Egg recipe: Take home lab

This is a take home lab that was assigned to my Foods 10 class, over our spring break. We were told to chose three recipes and to try at least one of them. The recipe(s) you chose was graded/marked by a guardian of your chose. The sheet that was marked was handed in the first day back to school from Spring break.

I chose to do a Egg Masala which I’ve seen my mom make many times. I personally don’t like egg that much and did not end up eating it, so i had my parents and sisters taste who said it tasted good. I did however try it and think it needed to be less oily.

Comprehension questions for the Friday that everything changed.

The Friday everything changed Questions

  1. Because then less boys will be doing it and getting to miss class to carry the water bucket. It’s also a sign of power and they don’t want the girls getting that amount of power like there is at River Hebert.
  2. They bully the girl who gave the idea of girls carrying the water bucket, Alma Niles. This makes the girls work together more in protecting Alma as this could be something that changes how the girls will be at this school.
  3. It’s told from the point of an unnamed character. She thinks Mrs. Ralston is beautiful and a strong woman. She thinks the girls should be able to carry the water.
  4. It is more of a rural Ontario area which is given when they talk about Toronto maple leafs. The time seems to be after one of the world wars as they talk about German warplanes with bombs. The conflict is girl’s vs society as they are shown to be not at the same level as males in their school society.
  5. Alma Niles, because she is the person the whole story started because of. When she asked why girls don’t it started the whole story off.
  6. Everything changed that Friday because girl’s got to go carry the water bucket which gave them power. Ms.Ralstons action is the last paragraph shows that females are not lesser than males. The theme/message of the story is equality between genders.
