Desmos Portrait 2018

  My desmos self portrait! How I figured it out: At first, I was really struggling with this project. It took me a little while to get the hang of the formulas needed and how to use desmos. Once I figured out the basics of desmos after playing around with it, I started to form my face. my base was the circle formula, x2 + y2 = r2. That was used for my eyes, face, nose and hair accessory. I then started using different and more…

Surface Area of a circle – Orange activity

For this activity, the goal was to find a formula for the surface area of an orange. First, we took the orange and cut it in half. That give us a circumference of the orange. We then traced it onto a big piece of paper as many times as we could. Then, we peeled the orange and took small bits of the peel to fill the circles as many times as we could. We could fit the orange peels into 4 full circles. The formula…

Garibaldi Lake Task

Picture: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Garibaldi_Lake_and_Mount_Price.jpg For this task, we must find an about volume for Garibaldi Lake. We know the surface area which is 9.94km2 and the average depth is 119m2. You want to start of with conversions. We can make everything in meters.  9.94km      x       1000m        =     9940m 1m                    9.94km  9940 m         x     1000 L          =     9940 000 L 1L                        1m 9940 000 L x 119 m = 1 182 860 000 L   The volume will be 1 182 860 000 L 1 L of water =…

DNA Model

Today, we learned about DNA. In DNA, there are 4 bases, Thymine (T), Guanine (G), Adenine (A), Cytosine (C). These bases each have pairs. A and T are pairs, and C and G are pairs. We were given a pattern to follow. I chose sequence 1, which was T A C G T A T G A A A C. That means that the opposite would be A T G C A T A C T T T G. Bellow is a picture of my DNA DNA…

RAC Week

This week was Random Act of Caring week, and I chose to write a letter to someone who means a lot to me. I wrote a letter to my ballet teacher, who is one of my inspirations and idols. What did you notice about the people who benefited from the RAC? When she read the letter, her eyes started tearing up. She had a big smile on her face and I knew that it made her feel warm and happy that she had such an…
