Personal Project Reflection

June 18th, 2018 (Monday)

Day 1

Today is the first day of my project. I have learned 23 new digits of pi in 2 hours today. In a total of 27 digits.

My goal is to get memorize 50 digits of pi in a week.

I am really worried because pi has an infinite amount of digits and probably when I get to 30 digits I am afraid I am going to forget everything I have memorized.

I chose this project because I want to challenge my brain. I want to make my brain more used to memorizing which will be useful in life. I am looking forward to memorizing pi and train my brain and my memorization.

6 1/2 days left.

Day 2

Today is the second day of my project. It was quite bad because I nearly forgot 12 digits of the pi. I have learned 14 more digits of pi which is 41 digits of pi overall. I was quite focused in my work but kind of frustrated in the memorizing part. The most fun part is also forgetting the digits, it is fun because we get to work harder and working hard is actually fun.

I have demonstrated my thinking skills. I demonstrated my thinking skills by memorizing pi by doing different methods. Like the part method example:  3. 1415 926 535. Or in the repeat method Example: 3.1415…,3.1415…,3.1415… these show I have different thinking methods.

I also demonstrated being a risk-taker by trying to do something no else can think I can do. I also showed being a risk-taker by also trying to do something that is hard. Try to memorize pi.

5 1/2 days left

Day 3

Today is the third day of my project. It was bad like yesterday. It is was bad because I also forgot more digits of pi and it went on for a long time so I thought I forgot pi and I should have given up. But then I finally came back to the top. I have learned 6 more digits of pi which in total 47 digits.

The most challenging thing today is memorizing new numbers while trying to keep the other numbers. In other words, I keep memorizing new digits but always keep forgetting the old digits and I always skip some numbers on the way.

The most enjoyable thing is also forgetting numbers It may be bad to keep forgetting digits but it is also good because it will make you more determined and more focused.

Another enjoyable thing is actually testing. Testing is fun because someone tests you and it is fun when they correct and it is fun when testing me. It is also fun because I can see their faces when they are surprised to hear all the numbers in my head.

By the end of tomorrow which is the end of Thursday. I will have already have memorized 53 digits of pi. I chose this because today I only memorized 6 more digits. So I think tomorrow I will also memorize 6 numbers again. So this is my goal for tomorrow.

3 1/2 days left

Day 6

Today is the 6th day of my project. Now I have memorized 61 digits of pi. I have memorized 14 more digits in pi in 2 days. That means around 7 digits each day. I will try to memorize 65 digits of pi because it is harder for me to memorize numbers now because lots of numbers fill my head.

People always ask me if memorizing pi is fun or if I ever get bored. The answer is that sometimes I might feel bored but if I revise and forget numbers then it gets challenging and more fun because you can actually have faults.

2 1/2 days left.

June 26, 2018 (Tuesday)

Today is the 7th day of my project. I have unfortunately did not memorize any more digits. I still memorized 61 digits but I at least became more fluent. I am now 2x faster at saying all of the numbers and all of the numbers are organized in my brain.

I also did not have a lot of time because I was disracted by my friends. So that is the thing I am going to improve on.

1 1/2 day left.

JUNE 2018 PERSONAL PROJECT

My ideas are:

    1. Game reviewer
    2. Learn math (algebra, calculus, geometry and more)
    3. Try to memorize most of the digits of π
    4. Try to teach people math.

My final decision is that I will… (explain WHY you want to do this)

Try to memorize as many digits of pi as possible.

My plan is to…  

Keep on revising the numbers over and over again, I will also read pi as a book. The reason for this is because I easily memorize books so if I treat pi as a book it will be more easier.

I will keep my work/information…  (where? your choice)

I will use my notebook to see my progress in memorizing digits of pi.

My final ‘product’ or my aim I am working to achieve it…

To memorize pi

Transdisciplinary Themes I am Working on:  (delete what you are not using)

WHO WE ARE: beliefs & values; personal, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; cultures

 

Approaches to Learning I will Focus On:  (delete what you are not using)

Thinking Skills – Understanding. Using knowledge in new situations.  Expressing opinions. Making good decisions.

Communication Skills – Speaking. Reading. Writing. 

Research Skills –  Planning. Collecting & recording data note taking, making charts, writing etc. Organizing information. Making conclusions.

 

Children Rights & Responsibilities 

The unit was about every child rights and responsibilities. We have a home, a family, good environment, food, and water, and we have all the rights we need. But for people out there they might not have all the rights. So what we learned is that every child has to have their rights. A right is what everyone should have. A right is what we have to have a thing we depend on.

My project was that I was a black boy in 1847, my name was John Micheal.  I was a thirteen-year-old and I was in the Steamboat school in Mississippi U.S.A made In 1840. Here is my presentation under here.

S.W.W.

Stars I have for myself was that I was fluent and I remembered all of my lines and all of my stories and remembered the steamboat details really well.

Wishes are that I wish I researched longer and had more time to learn and have time to make props.

What I would change is that I would have more detail and make it more detailed and longer.

 

What I learned is that  I should be happy and grateful for what I have. I also should donate more and when I see a kid without rights I should help them in any way I can.

The action I could do is donate and help when I see (In person) a kid without rights I help him I give him food and drinks. I would download “Tab for a cause”. And do chairty for the people who need the money for their rights.

U.O.I Unit 4 Energy Reflection

Hello readers,

U.O.I unit 4 is a great unit, It is about energy. It might sound easy and you might think you know a lot but I knew a lot about energy but in the unit, I still learned a lot. Unit 4 was fun because there were so many experiments and fun ones. Energy has lots of kinds of energy types like solar panels, wind power, hydropower, nuclear, fossil fuels, petroleum and more. Energy has so many forms of energy like sound, wind, wind and many more.

We humans use energy every day like petroleum or electricity or even using your own energy. But energy has pros and cons ( good & bad) Like petroleum, we use petroleum every day for transportation but it creates an effect that is called global warming and cause pollution. Global warming causes heat and burns the Antarctic ice caps. But petroleum is a non-renewable energy so renewable energy has a different story. Let us take solar panels. solar panels are good for being renewable and for being stable and can be a shed. But are bad for not enough energy, and expensive a solar panel cost 15,000$ to 30,000$ per panel.

Sharjah Science Museum

We had a field trip to a museum in Sharjah U.A.E, it is called “Sharjah Science Museum” The museum was not like any museum but an energy museum at the museum, we studied a lot of energy like static electricity and more. We studied about heat and light energy. The field trip was a lot of fun.

 

 

 

Energy is for everything like animals and trains and more. Energy can be dangerous in places and safe. Energy can be non-renewable and renewable. Energy is everything. Energy makes things move, happen and go. Energy is used for even just for a finger it takesb energy for small things like an ant.

My Persuasive Writing

Hello readers, today you are going to read me persuasive writing About school. I hope you enjoy and agree with me. ENOJY!

School is to short. The school needs to be longer. Students don’t have enough time to learn. The school is not long enough. School is the source of learning and if the school is not long enough then the students don’t have time to learn anything. The school should be longer because the students can spend more time with their friends, have more fun and have more happiness. The periods are longer so they can spend their time on their favorite class, and they can be more independent because they are alone and have more confidence in what they are doing to learn a new thing by themselves.

 

The first reason why the school should be longer because the students can spend more time with their friends. Students should have time with friends because they can have more fun in school and have a lot of things to do with them. The students can also have more respect for their friends. The students can also have happiness with their friends and learn respect for others. The students can also have a great communication with their friends while the school is longer. They can learn to show loyalty to each other. The students can also learn new things while being with their friends. The students can have time making new friends.

 

The second reason why the school should be longer because there is going to be longer periods. The students can have more time in periods, have more learning since the periods are longer or there are new periods. The students can also spend more time in their favorite periods. The students can also learn more things since the school is longer. The students can also have more time to work. The students can also have more time on the periods to finish what they started. The students can also have two lessons in one period.

 

The last reason the school should be longer is that the students can be more independence. The students can learn independence by being more alone because they are learning new things by doing things by themselves. The students can be more independence by doing things by themselves so they learn and they can grow. The students are more alone so there is more time to learn new things. The students have more time in learning than other people doing the things they need.

 

Just imagine if the school is like 3 times longer the students will have more time with their friends, have more longer periods, and learn independence. If you agree with me then WE NEED LONGER SCHOOL DAYS!

If you agree with me comment down and if you don’t agree comment my mistakes and why you don’t agree with me.

Unit 4, Decimals

Hello Readers,

Do you know what decimals are? Decimals are numbers but a part of a number. In other words, the point is just to separate the whole number with a part of a number like 2.34 the decimal point is a separator for the parts and wholes. the wholes are on the left and the parts are on the right. In other words, decimals are just fractions. but fractions with an end of 10 or 100 or 1000. So like 3.4 is in other words 3 4/10. Decimals can be infinite. Decimals are also just a number but you can make it an infinite number of keep adding zero to the end because zero has no value so you can make the number as long as you want.

Decimals are fun. Decimal is a challenge. You can even sort out decimals like 3.3 or 3.31 which one is bigger. It is 3.31 because the 1 is bigger than zero looks 3.30 or 3.31 so 3.31 is bigger. Decimals are also used for money like, I have 3.31 dollars or it can also be a measurement like it is 3.31 meters long.

Decimal is a number with a whole and a part of a number. Decimals are fun to play with but I still want to know how to learn on how to make myself better in decimals.

My Opinion Writing

Hello readers,

Today I am talking about my opinion writing on video games. And I talk about that video games are the best source of entertainment. To find out why it is the number one source of entertainment is to read on and read the rest of the amazing opinion writing.

Games, video games, or real games? I choose video games. I believe video games are the number one source of entertainment. Video games are way different than regular games because regular games are like on paper or a mat. But video games are a different world, different place, and you are a different person when you are playing a video game. I believe video games are the number one source of entertainment because you can play with anyone, there are different platforms, and video games are the number one source of entertainment because there is no stop to games.

Are you sick of going outside of your house to play games? Well, I am sick of going outside, so the first reason why I love video games is that you can play with anyone. You can play with anyone with you now which is multiplayer, for example, one time when I was playing a game, 3 of my friends came in and took a seat. They really wanted to play, so I change to 4 players and they joined in. This proves you can play with your friends and you can play without going outside. You can also play with people online and friend them, and if you are alone you can play with bots which are computers that play with and you can choose how many players you play with like 50 vs 50 or 2 vs 2. And you can play together or against people like teams or everyone for themselves.  When you play games you can join any of your friend’s games.  And when you play, you don’t need to play with someone you are with, you can play with anyone in the world and you can always have contact with the people you play with.  And you can play with people you know in real life and you can play with people you don’t know like online people that you don’t know. You can play with anyone at any age and play at anywhere. You can play games with people you don’t know and you can play with anyone you do and don’t know. You can play split screen or connect to Wifi. Video games have different multiplayer count like 50 or 5. Players can play with you without you going outside to actually see the person. You can play with people that are famous, anonymous or even your own friend. This is the first reason why video games are the number one source of entertainment.

Even though video games are the number one source of entertainment because of you can be playing with anyone. The second reason why video games are the number one source of entertainment because there are different platforms. In video games, there are different platforms and on different platforms, there are different games. And in platforms, there are different setup and there are the same games in all of them except for exclusive games for only that platform like the game “E.T” is only exclusive to the platform “Jaguar”. Different platforms can give you different abilities like you can play on the go like on the plane or you can play at home. Platforms can fit in your pocket or your luggage. And different platforms have a different program like the “Razor” brand for computers have a C.P.U. that gives you more ability to play more games. And there can be programs to let you or give you games. Games are different to Video games because video games are playable anywhere with a different platform and real games there is one platform like paper or your home road.

The video game industry was here for a long time. It might have been here before you were even born! So it is impossible to finish all of the video games in the world. And even if you finished all of the games in the world, the video games have D.L.C., updates, and video games always expand. So the third and last reason why video games are the number one source of entertainment because there is an infinite amount of games. Every second a game is made for a platform so there is an infinite amount of games. There are games online or offline or animation and drawing so you have to have different platforms. Video games are infinite because games could be downloadable or bought. Video games are impossible to complete because they will update and might have extra levels. Video games have different video games for different platforms. So you need all of the platforms to get all of the video games, and if you get all of the platforms and all the games there will be more games in the making and new platforms.

In the end of all of this, Video games are the best because you can play with anyone, play on different platforms, and there are an infinite amount of games. I love video games so much and you should too. Video games are the best way to get entertainment because you don’t need to go outside. Video games are the best way to get entertainment because you can play on different platforms.  Video games are the best way to get entertainment because you can play an infinite amount of video games. And as I always said video games are way different than regular games. They are different because regular video games are like on paper or on your street and video games are multiplayer, platforms, and infinite. Video games are the number 1 way and source of entertainment in the whole world. Video games are the best. Video games are impossible to compete. I love video games, and I hope you love them too.

My Best Advertisement

Hello readers,

Today is the last day of UOI. Which as you know I love UOI. UOI is the best because you learn things that actually happen in real life, Like erosion, volcanos, canyons, and ads.   But today I am showing my best UOI project of the unit advertising and it is called gaming world.

Gaming World is the company my partners and I made with my partner’s computer, Abdulla. Abdulla had all our progress on his computer so at the beginning of the day he did not show up but halfway through the first period, he came in. And I want to share this topic because we thought we put enough work, enough detail, and enough hard work. So back to the topic, I and my partners had made a video and ads but here are the ads:

Part one click HERE

Part two click HERE

I really love the ads I hope you do and let’s continue. And one reason why I chose this as my presentation is that it taught me a lot of things and I mean a lot like cooperation, fairness, respect, leadership, making ads, and many more. This project also was fun and enjoyable. I wished we put sound in the ad and make the ad more description and put more time in the ad and work and effort. I also wished to improve is to put the information on my computer so I can edit and put more time and effort into the ad for our UOI project. I loved making the ads, making the pictures and making progress.

I love the unit and project because this was the last project and before we were really bad at making ads, and now we can make ads as it is our homework. We can make ads like it is nothing. We can make ads like it is a walk in a park. And in the past, we made ads that are bad with too many words, too much description, and too many pictures. But now we can make ads that are good for the only certain type of people, enough description, and great main idea.

In the project, I had shown the attitude integrity because I let my partner work and put it on my partner’s computer and I tell what I believe and I let everyone have a chance. I loved this project. It is the last and very last project I will do with ads.

Math Unit 3

Hello readers,

In math unit 3 was the most funnest and best unit every. In math unit 3 we learned about primes, composite,  open numbers sentences in division and multiplication, and algebra. The reason why I love math unit 3 is because there are things I did not learn before, so I always love a challenge. I always love something over level and something that is new for me, like algebra or prime and composite.

I enjoyed the unit 3 math lessons because they put me in the level that challenges me and gives me time to think and lets me try things I never did before. I found out that algebra is not that hard, it is just some letter to show a number like 20+50 =h . The algebra letters has to stand for something like r for rain. I found it difficult to do the primes because I have to find a number with only 2 factors 1 and itself like 11 is a prime because it has two factors 1 and itself 11.

In unit 3 math I learned about prime, composite , algebra , open number sentences in division and multiplication and even improved my multiplication. But I can always learn more and soon I will be at my best.

Reflecting on my Personal Inquiry Project

Hello readers,                                                                                                                                             On Thursday me and my partners Karl and Abdulla presented our U.O.I project which was our own company called “Gaming World.”. We chose games because I and my partners know and love games so we wanted something in common with us and since we all know about games we can all make a good slogan and a logo for the company and all of the other ideas where bad like origami, but origami is bad because we needed to make the origami first which the origami will be crumbled and then the store will be just paper which will not be fun.So all of us got to work on something, I worked on editing the ad. Abdulla’s job is in practice and movie. And Karl’s job was to work on if everything makes sense and the logo.

https://www.head-case.org/forums/topic/11097-best-single-headphone-in-the-world/

Our logo is a world with headphones, we put the world with headphones to make it look like it is gaming. Karl was the one with the idea for this to be our logo but this picture is not ours.

 

Our slogan is “Play Like Never Before” it is Play like never before because we have different games so you can now play like never before.

 

 

I and my partners have come with a great slogan, logo, and a company. So if I was going to choose a group for UOI I would choose my partners now.
