I used this video to recap how to find the similarities between two different triangles. It also helped me find the pattern for other shapes.
This video helped me pick out little details from word problems so I would be able to solve the word problem more easily.
Kahn Academy helped me a lot during this unit as well as other units. This site has all the math units you could think of. I will definitely be using it until I leave high school.
- What did you learn about the core competencies before this project?
I learned that each person has every core competency in them it’s just if you choose to use it. I also learned that there were lot’s of core competencies that you can have or that you use in your every day life. The core competency that I think I use most is communication because I like to talk to people about different things and different classes. Core competencies can come in handy when someone asks about what kind of job you have and you can tell them and also tell them what skills you use for your job. I learned that there are many Canadians that have done good things for our world and even if they have only done one thing to help with the town they might have a couple core competencies in the past. Terry Fox is one Canadian that no one will ever forget. He had used lot’s of core competencies like creative thinking to come up with the idea of running across Canada. He used self responsibility to be able to keep himself healthy and safe.
2. How can your knowledge of core competencies help you in your school life?
I could use core competencies on assignments that I have to do for classes. I could do my work and list a couple core competencies that helped me with my work and helped me think of topics to write about. Core competencies could help a person with being able to share something that they might want to share but don;t normally like sharing. If I had to create a story or create a poem I would use creative thinking to help me with thinking of an idea.

I want to make Mr. Thies and my parents happy. I would really like to go into math 10 pre calculus and foundations.
The employment opportunity is a part time job at Wendy’s. Working at an early age could give me a benefit going into a job if someone else has never worked before they would take you over them. The only qualification is that you have to be 15 and have some sort of achievements. i have played on many sports teams so I have good team work. i have also volunteered at different rec centers for helping young kids with basketball. I need to have decent grades to be able to be a good role for thus job and I will need to have a good attitude.
The volunteer opportunity I found was being an assistant with swim lessons at Hyde Creek Rec Center. This volunteering job could help me to get a part time job which would be actually teaching a swimming lesson on my own. I am very passionate about this volunteer job because i have just finished level 10 for swimming.
