The rest of the group, however, shifts its allegiance to Jack because he has given them meat rather than something useless like fire.

Gilligan’s point can be seen in children’s free play. When boys are confronted with a conflict involving fairness they tend to argue it out or take their ball and go home. On the other hand, girls faced with conflict over fairness will try to resolve the issue through compromise. But if compromise fails, girls will generally change the activity rather than disband the group (Cyrus, 1993).

These results indicate that children as young as age three and four are able to recognise and trust a consensus. In addition, young children are good at remembering who was and was not a part of the majority group, said a Harvard release.

How Piggy had no parents, so he was really shy and did everything that the other boys did to fit in with the group.

Of 18 children 12 conformed to the majority at least once, if they had to say the answer out loud.

Precalc 11 – “Week 10”

This week in Pre-Calculus 11, we studied and reviewed for our midterms next week. The most challenging thing for me is how to find t_{8} when you only know t_{2}=10 and t_{4}=20.

With the help of some of my classmates, we realized 4 divided by 2 and 20 divided by 10, would give us the d value. by dividing those two answers: 10 divided by 2, it gives the d value which is 5. Then using the arithmetic formula you can find t_{1}=5 and then t_{8}=40.

Thank you for reading and good luck on your midterms!



  1. Rubidium (Rb)
  2. The more electrons there are on one shell the smaller the atomic radius,  That is why for the first family the atomic radius is big. Every period the atomic radius increases in proportion to the last period.
  3. a) Cesium (Cs) -> 0.295 nm       b) Tungsten (W) -> o.135      c)Thallium (Tl) -> 0.180       d) Radon (Rn) -> 0.140
  4.  Group one contains the largest elements.


  1. The amount of energy needed to remove the looses electrons.        a) By period it increases until it gets to the noble gases, and then the next element decreases drastically, because the valence shell is not complete. By family it decreases one by one.       b) Helium (He).
  2. a)[Ne] 3s2 3p5             b) The last electron, the electron configuration would look like this: [Ne] 3s2 3p4.
  3. For metals the ionization energy is closer in between each element, and for the nonmetals the ionization energy varies drastically. Metals tend to have lower ionization energy than nonmetals.


  1. Within a period the melting point usually increases until it reaches the fourth group, after this point the melting point decreases, however for the metals this changes.
  2. The fourth group.
  3. Carbon could be a reasonable change for Tungsten, because it has a very high melting point.


  1. By period we can see that it increases then decreases and the increases and finally decreases one last time when it reaches the noble gas. This is visible on the graph.
  2. The densities a very similar if we look at their group and density, meaning Berium has a similar density to Magnesium.
  3. The metals generally have a larger density than the main group, with some metals having more than double the density of the main group.
  4. Aluminum and Magnesium are more suitable for airplane parts, because they are less dense than iron which is almost twice their density.


  1. Within period, the electronegativity increases drastically.
  2. Within group, the electronegativity decreases slowly.

Precalc 11- “Week 9”

This week in Pre-calculus 11 we learned about modelling quadratic equations.

Modelling quadratic equations is when you are not given an equation, but rather words/sentences to describe how the equation works. This can be seen in this example:

The addition of two numbers is 30, by multipling the numbers you can get an answer of 200. So using these two phrases you can create two equations to find the x and y value.


this can also be written as y=30-x


Now using the two equations you can find the x and y value:







x_{1}=20, x_{2}=10

Voila you have found the x and y value.

Thank You for reading!


“Lord of the Flies” – Island Description

(The following are quotes based on the setting of the “Lord of the Flies”)

  1. Island shape

“It was roughly boat-shaped: humped near this end with behind them
the jumbled descent to the shore. On either side rocks, cliffs, treetops
and a steep slope: forward there, the length of the boat, a tamer descent,
tree-clad, with hints of pink: and then the jungly flat of the island, dense
green, but drawn at the end to a pink tail. There, where the island petered
out in water, was another island; a rock, almost detached, standing
like a fort, facing them across the green with one bold, pink bastion” (38).


“Beyond falls and cliffs there was a gash visible in the trees; there were
the splintered trunks and then the drag, leaving only a fringe of palm
between the scar and the sea. There, too, jutting into the lagoon, was the
platform” (39).

3)Fruit Trees

“He picked his way up the scar, passed the great rock where Ralph had
climbed on the first morning, then turned off to his right among the trees.
He walked with an accustomed tread through the acres of fruit trees”(77).

4) Lagoon

“banked sand inside the lagoon so that there was a long, deep pool
in the beach”(14).

5) Fire

“we must make smoke on top of the mountain. We must make a fire”(51).

6)Site where Ralph and Piggy find the conch

“little breezes crept over the polished waters beneath the haze of heat. When these breezes reached the platform the palm fronds would whisper, so that spots of blurred sunlight slid over their bodies or moved like bright, winged things in the shade.” (Golding 17-18)


“Ralph sat on a fallen trunk, his left side to the sun. On his right were most of the choir; on his left the larger boys who had not known each other before the evacuation; before him small children squatted in the grass.” (Golding 43)


“All round him the long scar smashed into the jungle was a bath of heat” (Golding 6).


“The shore was fledged with palm trees. These stood or leaned or reclined against the light and their green feathers were a hundred feet up in the air.” (Golding 10)

10)The coral reef

“the coral reef and the few stunted palms that clung to the more elevated parts would float up into the sky” (Golding 81).



Precalc 11- “Week 8”

This week in Pre-calculus 11 we learned about Analyzing Quadratic Functions.

There are three equations you can get:






Each one tells us a different thing about the graph.

y=(a+b)(a+c) :

from this equation we get the x-intercepts.

y=ax^2+bx+c :

from this equation we get the direction of the parabola, the narrowness/wideness and the y-intercept.

y=a(x-p)^2+q :

from this equation we get the direction of the parabola, the narrowness/wideness and the vertex.
