Week 2 – Math 10

Weekly Blog Post 1

This week in Math 10 I learned how to find factors, find GCF and LCM, Square and Cubed roots, and so much more. I want to show my learning of what makes up a radical expression and how to solve it. I have done the equation 5 \sqrt[2]{20} in my video and named what each number is called.



What it mean to be human…

Humans want to communicate

Humans are violent

Humans fight for what they believe in

Humans have conflict/war

Humas prevale dispute conflict

Humans may abuse power

Humans evolve

Humans want to be remembered because most like recognition

Humans disagree

Humans are curious and seek knowledge

In the book The one and only Ivan by Katherine Applegate, I learned that emotions play a huge part in humans lives. The book is about a gorilla, however, the characteristics and emotions I felt I could easily put myself into the character of Ivan and feel what he was feeling. Ivan was a gorilla who was alone in a cage and learned to paint and have fun within his cage. He was abused by the zookeeper and made friends with other animals but he taught me you will go through hard times and abuse, verbally, mentally, or physically but, you can over come them in time. Ivan finishes by finding something that motivated him to overcome the past wounds and memories and try to help the someone who motivated him. With this story I learned there will be hard times and memories that may last forever, but, you will break that shell and experience a whole different world and meaning of life.

Whats in my Junk Food?

NYF Classic Poutine (Regular Size)

When I go to the mall, which might be too often, I try to time it towards lunch time just to get ‘my poutine’. NYF Classic Poutine is my favourite. Its a quick little stop in-between hitting stores with friends or family. Unfortunately I know its not the greatest for me, however once or twice in about   2 months shouldn’t be to bad.

A regular sized, Classic Poutine has 950 calories, 50g fat, 1150mg sodium, 7g fibre, 2g sugar, and 19g protein. This is all put together by using, crispy, browned french fries, a hearty meat gravy, and basic cheese curds. Not the greatest. Having a ton of calories is not beneficial to my health at all. neither the amount of sodium, its through the roof!




May Reflection

Lasagna Roll Ups Reflection 

I chose to reflect on this as it has been one of my favourite labs so far. I will be making this at home and I also liked it as we did it over a couple of days. More work!





Final Product:



  1. I enjoyed this lab a lot, I like two part labs that expand over a day. They are fun. I enjoyed it thoroughly, we made a mistake but it was fun and I actually might use it again, compared to other labs.
  2. Our product was close to perfect besides the one mistake of not putting the cheese in the roll up and instead we put it on top. Still tastes the same if not better! Other than that it was what we had hoped it would be.
  3. Our group is big on equality so we all pitched in fairly. No problems occurred.
  4. When I go to do this lab at home, because my parents liked the idea of it, I might add more seasoning and flavour, made another type of cheese and less sauce on the bottom of the pan as I felt it was to much.

Stretch the Kitchen- Brett C


Here is our recipe:


The process was a little bit shaky to begin when we couldn’t find a complex enough recipe, lead to Mr. Brett choosing for us. Then the converting took its toll on all of us as, it was difficult at times. The actual lab went smooth, they tasted great. For next time I think it would be easier if everyone was there, but what can you do! Maybe more communication, my group is really quiet ( except for me ) but more talking would be beneficial.

11.1 Factors Influencing Data Collection

Sample 1; T Shirts

When I first read the article, I thought most people either just prefer to wear yellow, or it has a name brand tag as it is almost double the other shirt (shirt A). After learning about influencing factors, I now think it applies to the influence factor that is bias as, there are only two colours, blue and yellow. What if you do no the those colours? The other factor that applies to this sample is cost because some people, kids and adults, will purchase the product that is worth more, just to say that they have it. This may have even more of an effect as surrounded by peers in a school environment might make the students buy it so others see they got the more expensive one. In the future, when reading and interpreting survey data I will definitely take each influencing factors into account as sometimes you just fly through surveys to get them done, but actually taking time to break the questions down might end up being beneficial.
