Shrinky Art – Scale Math Lab

Shrinky Art Math Lab Summary

1- Was the resulting object similar to the original?

Yes, the resulting object was similar to the original. They were the same shape but different sizes. The colour had gotten darker after it went into the oven. The scale factor of this difference is – 1 : 0.62


2- Speak to other classmates about their results and the plastic code. Did different plastics produce different results?

Yes, different plastics did produce different results. Someones shape got bigger instead of getting smaller, like mine.


3- Looking at the resulting art pieces of your peers, what else could have affected the results?

The size could have effected the results. Maybe even the amount of sharpie you put on it.


4- And to conclude, if you tried this again, what might you do differently?

If I were to do this again, i woud make my shape bigger and use a different type of plastic. After it came out of the oven, it was very fragile.

Digital Footprint

1-How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities? Give at least two examples.

a- My digital footprint might affect my future job as the place I am applying to, their manager can google me and search me up of different social media platforms. They can find out what I have posted on my social media pages or find pictures of me on google. This also might affect me when I meet new people, they can also search me up on google or on different social media platforms.

                             1.                                              2.

2-Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.

a- I can post and search positive things rather than negative things. I can also not use my real name for websites or social media platforms or turn off my location while using my phone and computer

                              3.                                              4.

3-What information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?

a- The information that I learn today and can pass on to other students is to not post negative things because it could cause you not to be accepted into a future job. I would also say that you should turn your location off for most of you gams and apps on you phone as the carier can track your searches and the exact location where you searched it
