taming of the shrew

during the workshop for shake spear , I really liked the way they taught it, it was hands on and interactive so made it a bit more  fun to learn than what I thought shake spear would be. There’s not much that I didn’t like about it, in my opinion it was all good the way the bard on the beach taught it.

English individual project

My opinion on this book is that the message tells that you need to trust people and your family even in the worst of times because every one makes mistakes in life just as the dad did

I did the objects around him as constellations because he was thinking about constellations and galaxy’s when he was driving in the car with the police. The painting represents how both parents really do care about him but he doesn’t realize or know what to do.

mitosis cell stop motion

during this project, I learned a bit more about mitosis , and even my partners in my group. We all worked together fairly in my opinion. No one did more than someone else and overall I think we did pretty good.

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

pw: library

gale pw: student

 

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.
