what I learned – math

today in math I learned about math coding and exponents. Math coding is called latex.

one way to use latex is …

first you do “$latex ” this tells that it is going to be math , next if you wanted to do 5 to the power of 2 , you would put 5^2, then to finish it off you need to put another dollar sign to say that the equation is finished.

5^2

Albinism , science mutation project

Shelby carpenter – grade 9 – albinism – Mr. Campbell
Albinism

Ask
– How does this happen?
– Can it be treated?
– How long do they live?
– Can it happen to animals?
– What kind of mutation is this?
– Does this lead to other skin disease or mutations?
– Where on the body could this occur?

Acquire
– Albinism happens when a genetic defect makes the body unable to make or give melanin.
– There is no treatment, people with this mutation must take care of there eyes, skin and body as they face the sun since it could be so immune to skin disease
– They have a shorter life span and they are lacking pigment which could lead to skin cancer
– It can happen to animals, just as how it happens to humans
– This kind of mutation occurs in the TYR gene and it is a point/substitution mutation
– Children are born with albinism from and it is passed down from what other type of genes the parents have had
– This occurs in lack of pigment in eyes, skin, and hair.
– This can lead to vision problems

Summarization of albinism
Albinism is a mutation that causes the skin to be lacking pigment as well as the hair and eyes. This is because the body is unable to produce melanin. There isn’t any treatment for albinism, any body who has it just should be cautious of the sunlight, as their skin and eyes could lead to vision defects or skin disease. People who have been diagnosed with albinism may have a shorter life span since they could be more immune to skin disease. This can happen to animals just as it does to humans. This mutation happens in the TYR gene and it is a point/substitution. Children are born with albinism when passed down the genes from the parents.

information fluency

1 ) 3 ways to tell if a website is reliable or not is…:

 

if the website has spelling mistakes or not.

if for example it was the ” dog island” website, it should say where it is located.

if the sponsors are fake or not.

 

2) how to get to the library database from home …:

 

library page logon use your school login:  132-firstinitial.lastname and your school password

ebsco logon : riverside rapids

3) something i learned today is that there are many ways to determine if a website is real or not and that citing is important because it can give “proof” that you found the information from someone else.

house of gold twenty one pilots song analysis

here is my analysis of my song of choice

 

 

 

             “House Of Gold”
twenty one pilots

She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”I will make you queen of everything you see,
I’ll put you on the map,
I’ll cure you of disease.Let’s say we up and left this town,
And turned our future upside down.
We’ll make pretend that you and me,
Lived ever after happily.She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”

I will make you queen of everything you see,
I’ll put you on the map,
I’ll cure you of disease.

Ohhhh…
And since we know that dreams are dead,
And life turns plans up on their head,
I will plan to be a bum,
So I just might become someone.

She asked me, “Son, when I grow old,
Will you buy me a house of gold?
And when your father turns to stone,
Will you take care of me?”

I will make you queen of everything you see,
I’ll put you on the map,
I’ll cure you of disease.

 

imagery-

some describing words in this song are lyrics of ” will you buy me a house of gold ” describes that when the lady asked him to buy the house and take care of her means in my opinion that she is getting older and she wants someone there for her and when the father turns to stone means when he passes away.

there isn’t any alliteration in this song.

an example of onomatopoeia is “I’ll put you on the map I’ll cure you of disease. ”

a metaphor in this song is the line ” and when your father turns to stone “. Its a metaphor because its referring that when the dad dies he will just turn to stone.

there is no personification in this song.

there is no similes in this song.

some vivid language in this song is the lyrics “I’ll make you queen of everything you see” and ” turned out future upside down” These are examples of vivid  language because its kind of exaggerating what is being said.

why does the poet choose these words?

I think they chose these words because the meaning of a house of gold is saying  that they want something spectacular once the father is gone. It effects the song because some of the words that they chose really impacts and exaggerates the song.

tone and attitude – 

some words that describe the feeling of this song is exhilarated, happy and energetic. I chose these words because he wants to kind of make her famous and treat her so much.

some mood changes in the song are “Ohhhh…And since we know that dreams are dead, And life turns plans up on their head, I will plan to be a bum, So I just might become someone.” I think it changes the mood because the beginning of the song was happy and giving to the lady the song is about ( about giving her a house of gold ) and then it says that their dreams are dead now.

I think this song is in between being satirical and thoughtful.

style-

this type of poem/song is a lyric.

there is 8 stanza’s / verses

the rhyme scheme is abab

there is no absence of punctuation

 interpretation- 

the song is trying to say that they would do whatever the lady ( assuming its a mother ) wants and will do it no matter what it means for him and his life.

the poem is for a mother because she asks the questions with ” son… ”

the singer is the son of the mother/lady that he is going to treat.

this song to me means that he will do anything for her when shes older and not have her husband with her, and its a thoughtful song in my opinion.

 

 

song analysis

With my future, ahead of me I could see myself doing something in the field I love. The fashion and beauty industry. The job would be so exciting as to show off my creations and makeup on the runways.

I would obtain this job by going to beauty and fashion school.  A school that I could think about is blanche MacDonald beauty school. It is a beauty college in Vancouver that specializes in hair, nails, fashion design, and makeup artistry. Once I go to a college such as blanche MacDonald, I could apply jobs to clothing and cosmetic stores to help boost my career.

Blanche MacDonald beauty school would cost $16,000 for the fashion design program for Canadian students and for a part time makeup artistry program it is $500 plus $180 for the makeup tools and kits.

A day in the life of a beauty student would be commuting to Vancouver to blanche MacDonald, and learning all about the things I love. I would imagine that I would have classes and tutorials with other makeup artists and fashion designers with the same passion as me. I would learn about different textiles, colours and history of makeup, fashion and beauty, The evolution of clothing styles, how trends could change, and how styles could go or come back from different eras.

science app review

science app I have chosen:

Image result for science questions and answers app

science app name: science questions and answers

 

define:

I could use this app to help me study or keep up with my class and help me remember things so I can do better on tests and quizzes.

discover:

I can discover how i could use this for outside of science class for example, if I chose to study I can use it to help me make flash cards or something like that.

dream:

I can use this in another way by trying and achieving to find a way to use it as much as possible

design:

the design of this app is very organized and helpful for learning and studying science, it is all categorized into different units of science and you can get the answers for each question by clicking on it

deliver:

I think this is  a good science app because it is very organized there is a lot of units/subjects to chose from and I would definitely recommend this

debrief:

over all this is a good app for science, it is free to download, and there is good units to chose from. There is a few things that could be better though. For example , there is some random units like dogs and country quizes which dont really apply to science and I just wish they had more questions for each subject/unit.
