This week, I worked on a lot of coding, using mostly Unity and Scratch. Unity is a free software which is great for making 3D and 2D games! I did my violin, swimming, and taekwondo classes as usual, and I went to nature school on Wednesday.
To start the week, I learned about differentiating functions. And I learned what conductors and insulators are. I did some geography about Afghanistan. And I colored it in, for my CIATCOTW (Color In All The Countries Of The World) project. And I wrote some information about Afghanistan. I learned why resisters get hot when you run current through them. I did some C# coding, because Unity uses C#. I did Brilliant every day of the week, and I did this quiz on reflection. I did my violin homework. I made this healing, pain-relieving, muscle aching ointment that feels like lip balm at nature school. To make it, you immerse Cottonwood buds in sunflower oil, and leave it for about 12 hours. Then, Put the jug of cottonwood-buds-and-sunflower-oil in some simmering water, and leave it for 5 more hours. Then melt some beeswax, and put the cottonwood and sunflower oil inside the melted beeswax. Leave the mixture to cool! I learned how to spot disguised derivatives, which are basically derivatives that don’t look like derivatives. I learned how to take second derivatives, which are the derivatives of derivatives! I learned about LOL diagrams (LOL!) which are ways to represent potential and kinetic energy. I learned how to take the derivative of a logarithmic function. I continued my work on this game where you have to move around, and get to the green cube without running into any red enemies. I created a video on how to make a scrolling top-down game in scratch. It snowed this weekend!!! Oh, wait. it’s sandy. I made a chair! And a footstool!
