Rube Goldberg Assignment

For our Rube Goldberg machine we decided we wanted the end result for a bell to be rung. Our Rube Goldberg machine started by having a car drive into a ball that then went bounced off a wall into a spiral. As the ball exits the spiral the ball will knock over some dominos. Those dominos will then tip over and hit a ball into a vertical plane. The ball will then knock over more dominos and the final domino will land on the bell and ring it.

  1. Budget

Next you will be transferring these amounts to the budget worksheet and doing the totals. You will notice there are some other important expenses on that worksheet that are not on this prep sheet; consider if these will be relevant expenses for you.

  1. There are some additional items in the Excel that you MUST include like “Personal Grooming”
  2. It is imperative that your expenses are LOWER than or EQUAL TO your income. Otherwise you will need to re-assess your spending and make adjustments until your budget balances. Make sure you adjust this Prep Sheet so it reflects the changes made to your budget.

Week 15 – Math 10

This week in math 10 we learned how to solve equations using elimination. Elimination has fewer steps then substation that’s why I prefer this method of solving equations. Bellow are 2 examples of how to solve using elimination.

First example: 8x – y = 10

4x + y = 14

Step 1.  Add the x’s together, y’s together and the 10 and 14

now you have  12x = 24

Step 2. now divide 24 by 12

so now x = 2

Step 3. Now you have to get find y. Input 2 back into one of the equations above.

4(2) + y =14

8 + y = 14

now minus 8 on both sides to get y by itself

y = 6

 

Second example: x + 2y =3

-x + 3y = 2

5y = 5

y = 1

x +2(1) = 3

x =1

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 14 – Math 10

This week in math 10 we learned how to solve systems by substitution. I will be going over the steps of how to do substitution and I will provide examples.

Steps:

  1. Pick one equation and rearrange so it is x = or y =
  2. Substitute this into the other equation (use brackets)
  3. Solve equation
  4. Substitute the number just found, back into the rearranged equation
  5. Verify solution

Examples:

2.

Week 13 – Math 10

This week in math 10 we learned how to write and equation of a line in general form form. Bellow are some examples and descriptions of how to do general form.

  1. y = -2x + 9

So you have this equation and basically all you need to do is get a zero on one side of the equation by itself.

So subtract the y and you get           0 = 2x – y + 9

2.   y – 4 = 7(x – 1)

y – 4 = 7x – 7                     so you have to distribute first, now get zero on opposite of the equation

y = 7x + 4 – 7

0 = 7x -y – 3

Week 12 – Math 10

This week in math 10 we started a new unit and one section we learned about was the distance formula. I will be showing you how to find the distance between each pair of points.

  1. (2,0) and (7,12) – First you must subtract the y coordinates which are 0 and 12. So 0 – 12 = -12. Then you must subtract the x coordinates which are 2 – 7 which equals -5.

Now you must square -5 and – 12 and that will become 25 and 144. now add 25 and 144 together and you get 169. The last step is to square root 169 which is 13. So now you know the distance between (2,0) and (7,12) which is 13.
