This week, I started all my classes, like taekwondo, violin, and swimming. This week, I focused my attention mostly on making videos, about the Golden ratio. I started writing about the mandelbrot set this week, and I did a lot of Java and Scratch this week. I also got a shiny, new… Pair of underpants for christmas! Just kidding, I got an Apple Watch, and I’ve been REALLY motivated to go exercise in the morning, and my dad got an Apple Watch too, so we are competing against each other!
To start the week, I learned about the Golden Ratio. I first saw it on Khan Academy (not to study, just to not be bored), and I looked it up on YouTube, and I saw THIS video. Then I got inspired to make a video of my own. (This is a source for my video.) I did this to try to make a video about it. this is the Khan Academy video. (This is a source for my video.) Here is something SEEMINGLY unrelated to the golden ratio: An orchard! (This is a source for my video.) Here is some coding I did about the golden ratio and flowers. (this is a source for my video.) Play with the animation here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/470311076/ (this is a source for my video.) Here is this one (it’s my animation for my video (I made it in Scratch)): https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/470319137/ And I got the idea from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj8Sg8qnjOg I explain it all in my video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrcIevEqSyg&t=3s I made a thumbnail for my video. I did my violin homework. I learned about the Mandelbrot set. I watched a video about the mandelbrot set. A few years ago, I saw this video, and it had an interesting thumbnail, so I got curious. Then I watched it, and it was a little bit complicated for me at the time, so I forgot about it afterwards. Then, a few weeks ago, I was learning about math, and I saw a link to this video, and I remembered it from a few years ago, and I clicked on it, and THAT”s how I started learning about the Mandelbrot set, and this time, I finally understood it! I created the mandelbrot set with coding. This YuTube channel (The Coding Train) Taught me how to do it. Here it is! And here is the code. Play with it here: https://editor.p5js.org/ekwan/full/d6VxILuEz To wrap up my study of the mandelbrot set , I started writing about the mandelbrot set. I’m not finished, and I will continue it next week. I started redesigning my keyboard with a print-out layout that I made. Scroll down to bottom to download this keyboard for yourself! just saying that it IS a QWERTY Mac keyboard. I learned about Newton’s law of gravity for physics. I calculated it on my notebook, and I taught mom on the notebook as well. Then I saw this gravity simulator that I liked from a long time ago, and I played with it for a little! https://testtubegames.com/gravity.html It’s a gravity simulator, sort of like universe sandbox 2. To end the week, I did some coding, this one about tower defence. Find it here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/471883886/ I also did some fluid simulation, this time in Java, watching “The Coding Train” again. I learned about calculating pi with a dart board, and I simulated it in Java. Again, watching the coding train. Here are the new Apple watches! It motivates us to do more exercise.
