Thermos Challenge 2019

Below I have attached our Thermos Challenge Reflection. This document explains the process in which my group built our thermos as well as the reasons as to why we chose these specific materials. Alongside this document is a core competencies reflection. I explain that this project was one that forced us to use many different core competencies. At times it was difficult but I am grateful to have had this experience and the ability to create something that we could have only dreamed about making a few weeks ago.

Core Competent Canadians

Question #1: What did you know about the Core Competencies before this activity? What did you learn?

Before this activity, I knew what the Core Competencies were but I did not know why they are a part of our new curriculum. After discussing the reasonings as to why we reflect, I now understand that Core Competencies open up many doors for our learning experience. Instead of teachers reviewing the content for provincial exams with their class throughout the year, we use the content to develop our skills as learners.

Question #2: How can your knowledge of the Core Competencies help you in your school life? Personal life?

After reading these cards, I now realize that Core Competencies will not only play a major role in our school years but also a big part of our life after school. I believe that my new knowledge of Core Competencies will help me deepen my reflections as well as apply these Core Competencies daily in my classroom. I also believe that Core Competencies will help me in my personal life because being socially aware, a problem solver and a good communicator are all traits that I will need to apply in jobs, with friends and family and other activities in general.

Un Texte Argumentatif: Réflection

À quoi ça sert de pourvoir faire des textes argumentatifs et de défendre ses idées à l’orale?

Je dirai qu’il prend un cerveau très créatif de pourvoir faire des textes argumentatifs. Pendant que j’ai écrit mon texte argumentatif, j’ai dû penser des façons aux lesquels je pourrai convaincre les personnes à voter pour mon idée. J’ai accentué les arguments qui expliquent que mon projet ne sera pas cher, sera bon pour l’empreinte carbone de Riverside et que mon projet diminuera le prix des kangourous.

Il est nécessaire qu’on soit passionné au sujet de notre projet pour le défendre à l’orale. On devra bien organiser nos idées alors on pourra répondre facilement quand les autres nous poseront des questions. Je crois qu’on devra se souviens que les autres vont jugé nos idées mais qu’ils ne nous jugent pas comme une personne. Dernièrement, je pense qu’on aura besoin d’être prêt à penser aux scenarios sur-le-champ pour vraiment montrer que notre idée est capable de s’adapter.

Math Video: The Pythagorean Theorem

Below you will find our group project for Math Honours 9, a documentary and white board style video regarding the Pythagorean Theorem. In this video there are 4 main categories: the life of Pythagoras, explaining the Pythagorean Theorem, proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem and finally real life examples in which one can use the Pythagorean Theorem. We worked really hard on this video and had a lot of fun making it. We hope you enjoy!
