# Stem cells

in class, we skyped with Charis and she explained every question with a lot of detail which i liked. i did learn more about stem cells because of her.

# modeling mitosis

This is the cell before mitosis

This is the first part of mitosis, this is called a prophase.

- replicated DNA molecules join together to forma sister chromatids

this is the second part of mitosis this is called metaphase

- the chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell

this is the third part of mitosis, this is called anaphase

- unite the sister chromatids and move the 2 halves of each chromosome away from each other to opposite sides of the cell

this is the fourth and final part of mitosis called telophase

- spinal fibres disappear and 2 nuclear membranes form

# math equations

My four equations are

- 6x+2= 4x+3 = (2x+1=1/2)

2. 3x+6= 2x+4 = (-1x=+2)

3. -2x+5= 3x+1 = 5x= +4=4/5

4. -2x+5 -5x-4 = 1/6

# Community Changer

- How does the above picture relate to FEC?

This quote relates to the friday everything changed because there are scenes in the story where it showed how the guys treated the girls diffrently and where it says “some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check” is saying that if you have enough power in your hands you can hold evil in place and control it. It can relate to this story because the girls were treated differently and when they all got togther they had more power against the guys so they took place in their actions and showed them that girls cant be treated diffrently then guys in general.

- What is meant by small acts of kindness that are courageous in their own way? Give concrete examples from everyday life.

For example saying hi or even one word can change a persons perspective on living and can make the other person brighten up their day. another example from our everyday life is helping with charity because it can help many people and if you take your time out of your day to help charity, you can really help with how people live their lifestyle.

- Who has been on the forefront of change, but is an ordinary person? (not a celebrity etc.)

One person I can think of is Greg Moore who helped change the community and he tried to make a change in many things. for example Greg Moore gave an example of how upgrades to the ship yard in North Vancouver benefitted Vancouver the most, and helped Burnaby and other parts of the Lower Mainland in terms of contracts and job creation. Even Port Coquitlam acquired over $5,000 in business contracts. He has inpacted our community by many positive ways.

Greg Moore does act of kindness for almost every thing he does and he really helps and creates change for everyone in need and makes the community everywhere very helpful. I think this relates to Gandolfs quotes because the Gandolf quote says that if you have power then leave the bad things away from the positive things and have acts of kindness and love which what Greg Moore does and he doesn’t incudes any negative things in our community and our society.

# what i have learned about grade 9 fractions

- if its addition and subtraction you have to make the denominator the same and you have to make it equavelent too.
- tug of war
- just do it- its when it a multiplication question
- operations with integers, multiplication and division
- speed multiplication, for speed multiplication you have to divide the denominator and the numerator to make it the smallest fraction.
- we learned how to put fractions on a numberline and we also learned how to compare fractions. for a numberline you make the same denominator, for comparing fractions you also have to make it the same denominator and you can tell which ones bigger.
- we learned how to divide and multiply fractions together, for divsion u make it into a reciprocal fraction and you multiply. for multiplication you can just multiply straight across. Divion=
