This week, I did a lot of coding, and started using a game-making software called Unity. I made a few games in Scratch over the weekend. I also went to swimming, violin, taekwondo, and nature school this week. I did EMF and Brilliant every day of the week.
I learned about resistors in series, which is basically having a few resistors one after the other in a circuit. I taught my mom about series resistors. I learned about differentiability and continuity. I taught my mom about differentiability. I learned why prime numbers make these interesting spirals. if you plot prime numbers on a polar coordinate system, and you zoom out, you get spirals, and if you zoom out even more, you get straight lines! I was looking up dIfferentiability on YouTube, and I found this on the front page, and it looked interesting, so I clicked on it! I learned a bit more about how polar coordinates work. I did Brilliant every day of the week. This was about fractals. I did EMF almost every day of the week, and I finished another EMF course called “The Decimals.” The question on the screen was about statistics. I saw a video about a laser, and I thought it was really interesting. The video was showing an interesting way to represent sound, using a laser light! You put a mirror on a speaker, and you shine a laser onto the mirror. Then, you play something through the speaker, and you get a shape on the wall! This is what it looks like before we play a sound. Here is after we play a sound. Here is the video I mentioned: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-V1uXeyGmg I learned about an “old faithful” galaxy and an active black hole. Find it here: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2021/nasa-missions-help-investigate-an-old-faithful-active-galaxy/ And then I wrote about it on my notebook. FInd THAT here: https://www.howtodostuffwithethan.com/repeated-flares/ Wow, that’s amazing, 8319 views and 43 new subscribers in the last 28 days! I was checking this because I wanted to get an idea for a video. Turns out that coding videos are popular nowadays. I learned about derivatives of inverse functions. I taught my mom about derivatives of inverse functions. I learned about capacitors. I taught my mom about capacitors, and… There is a capacitor inside my SnapCircuits® set! I created some charging and discharging in my SnapCircuits® set. I wrote some code for a new software called Unity that I installed. Turns out that Unity is a great way to make games, and so I tried it out, and it’s going great so far! Here is the screen and what I can see. This is the testing area, and this area is for a FPS (A First-Person-Shooter, but possibly without the shooting. What is it now, and FP?) (Fpppppppppp). Of course, I didn’t do this all by myself, I found an online tutorial. I learned about the conservation of charge rule. I taught my mom about the conservation of charge rule. I finished level 10 (AGAIN) in swimming! I created this game on scratch. it’s basically a laser and sound game. Find it here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/484337826/ Here is the code. I also made a game where you just have to jump and run around to dodge all the spikes that come at you. Haha, when did my dad take this?! I went shopping with my dad, and I got everything that my mom wanted by myself 🙂 And… here is me coming back from my symphony orchestra!
And HERE is my score for my EMF test! Wow, I normally only get 60%, this was like 80%!
