Reviewing Scale Factors

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.

Core Competency Project

Core Competent Canadians

  1. 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.

Math Core Competency Reflection

Semester 2 goals paragraph

One of my goals for semester 2 is that I want to to work hard ad achieve a final grade of a B so I can make my parents happy. Another goal that I have is that i would like to be getting high grades and be doing well in my unit tests. By the end of the year I want to be happy with myself and know that I didn’t waste a year. I want to make Mr. Thies and my parents happy. I would really like to go into math 10 pre calculus and foundations.

Wendy’s Employment Opportunity

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.

Swimming Instructor Helper volunteer opportunity

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.

Modelling Meiosis

 

Prophase 1:

The nuclear membrane dissolves, and the chromatin thickens and forms chromosomes.

Metaphase 1:

The chromosomes align on the equator and pair up with their matching chromosome. They then switch pieces of DNA with their matching chromosome.

Anaphase 1:

The spindle fibers pull the matching chromosomes away from each other towards opposite sides of the cell.

Telophase 1:

The cell starts to divide with the same amount of chromosomes on either side in the nucleus.

Prophase 2:

The nuclear membrane dissolves and centriols form.

Metaphase 2:

Chromosomes align in the center of the cell.

Anaphase 2:

The chromatids separate and are pulled to either side of the cell by spindle fibers.

 

Telophase 2:

Nuclear membranes form around the chromatids and the cell starts to split.

Questions For Meiosis

  1. Is meiosis I or meiosis II more similar to mitosis? Meiosis 2 because when the centrieres, pull the chromatids apart, they align by themselves instead of in pairs like in mitosis.
  2.  List three similarities between mitosis and meiosis: The first similarity is that both split into different parts. They also both have the same cycle and DNA.
  3. List three differences between mitosis and meiosis: Mitosis splits into 2 parts and meiosis splits into 4 parts. Meiosis creates genetic differences in its cells but mitosis only creates two.
  4. Explain which method contributes to genetic variation and why: Meiosis does because in it’s DNA the genes switch. Cause if it never changed then there would just be clones of people which would be scary.
