Ethic of Care and Environmental Ethic

How do you personally define an ethic of care?

In my opinion, an ethic of care defines the action to help with caring for other people.


What would be needed to create an ethic of care?

The reason for an ethic of care would be altruism or conscience that humans usually have. Sometimes the belief of people who want to dream ideal goals can be that reason too.


What would we have to believe about the environment to care for it? How should we see it?

The small action from us can change the environment too.

If we want to act for protecting the environment, people at least need to care about the environment and deeply think about the way to fix the problem.


How would we act if we cared about the environment? – give scenarios

We can at least start from caring for the environment and the value of it. All side effects of environmental problems affect humans and the cost that will be invested to improve the problem will be uncountable so it would be better to take some time to fix it.


What would be different about the world if everyone adopted this ethic of care towards the environment? Benefits and drawbacks?

The big turning point will not be able to show up in a short time, there will be small changes. Then they can make a huge difference too. Although the ideal scenario always does not be the answer to the problem, it is still worthy to prepare for the little changes.


Should we adopt an ethic of care towards the environment?

The only action we can practice in reality for the environment does not need to be a huge event like inventing new green energy. We can start from some little actions that separating collection, using disposable cups, keep caring of the environment, and trying to find a way that we can actually practice. At least, it will be able to solve the environmental problems.

Desmos Art Functions Card 2018

This is my Christmas Card.

Making a Christmas card and drawing my face with Desmos was such a new and strange challenge to me. I have done once to make something with Desmos when I was taking Math 10, but they looked totally different from what I did a year ago. When I started, I expected it will take a long time to finish everything, so I began to do it right after the beginning of the winter break. Firstly, I began reviewing what we have learned before. It was not so difficult to plan the design of my card with expected graphs in the workbook on the paper, but I struggled to make it with creating equations, for it was so different from my prediction. Trying to use right and all equations were so difficult to me. Especially, colouring was the hardest one in my opinion. I had no idea how I could colour the equations that looked so difficult. Therefore, I needed to search on Google and YouTube, then got some information what I needed. The conflict I faced during completing this project was only not from struggling with equations and programs. For example, I forgot to save my work, so the data was entirely erased about more than five times, or I missed a huge part of this project, so I had to do everything again. I made countless mistakes during I was doing it, but I could understand better the graphs and equations I was struggling with. It was hard but interesting at the same time.
