This week is TECHNICALLY the start of SelfDesign, so I started getting ready 😀 I started doing my learner slideshow, which is a presentation about what your goals are this school year, and how you improved in the summer, so I wrote about… coding + math + science 😐 Other than that, I did a few questions on Khan Academy multivariable calc about gradients, and I started learning about special relativity!
Today was the meet and greet for grade 6-9 learners on Selfdesign, so I did that! Basically, five SelfDesign coordinators met with everybody in grades 6-9 on a Zoom meeting and talked about what they do. All of the activities might be fun (such as the gr. 8-9 circle where there is a theme every month, and we talk about things related to the theme), but my favourite out of them all (besides the Minecraft server of course) was the Genius hour because what you do is basically go on a zoom meeting for an hour and talk about what you’ve been working on, and then everybody else giving you tips it’s the BEST! Other than that, I learned about reflection, refraction, and Snell’s law, and I worked out a question about distance and refractions in the water! I also finished learning about Gradients and I got 100% on the quiz 😀 and I also learned about vector-valued functions and how you can take the derivative of a position to get velocity.
Today was the day that I started writing about something, and that something was about a tiny asteroid called Queta that was discovered around a Trojan asteroid called Eurybates. I also learned about lenses and made a nice colour drawing of the derivation of the thin lens equation.
Tomorrow is my birthday 🙂 But other than that, I wrote an article (AGAIN) about brown dwarves and an accident that lead to believing that there are more brown dwarves in the Milky Way. I also did math (about approximating 3D curves with a quadratic, kinda related to the Taylor series) and science (about circuit components).
Today is my birthday! Woke up to a sign that says “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!” And opened presents, which were books and more books. Later in the day came a pack of dominoes! I wanted those, so yay! 🙂 I also had an online party with my friends from my book club that I used to run, and so we played online games like Skribbl.io and UNO online. Not only that, but I also studied, lol. For some reason, I don’t have those photos, soooo…
I… coded. And I did my SelfDesign learner slideshow, where you talk about what you like and stuff. I also invited one of my friends over at 2:00 pm, and we hung out together!
