End of Semester
King Arthur's Table
The goal is to find an equation that keeps you a seat no matter how many people are at the table. Below shows how King Arthur chooses the people that stay. It's an every other type of pattern, one in the next out. I'm proud because I worked so hard and actually enjoyed this POW. I laughed and focused, I felt really smart for once. I loved being with my friends and figuring this out. Nothing about the POW interested me intensely.
The More, The Merrier
We studied population growth and the pros and cons of certain situations. I studied a one child policy with Cole. I'm not necessarily proud but I'm not proud of the others except for King Arthur's Table. I enjoyed that this was actually precedent to our world and how screwed up it is.
I didn't accomplish anything . This first semester was disappointing and saddening. I didn't have any goals, and anything I did do was taking down at school. I was just trying to make a difference and even at this school, I was shut down for being different. I will say no more because it is rude and too personal.
End of the Year Reflection

Can we water flowers with equal distance from a sprinkler?
You simply measure the distance between two points, and divide that by two. That will give you the radius. When you have four points to measure you take that initial distance and multiply it by two or take its circumstance. You can also use the distance formula in order to solve this. X1 - X2 + Y1 - Y2 and then take that all and square root it. I understand the concept but I am terrible at explaining it in detail. I hope that this makes enough sense. I've been lacking in motivation so this definitely isn't a strong POW for me and I apologize for that.
(I could not get the image file to work from docs. I apologize.)
I enjoyed it mostly because we had two other pretty intense projects to do. It was nice to at least have an easier more free project to work on. I appreciated being able to choose anything I wanted to do and not feeling pressured to be anything more. On the other hand, I wish we could've done a project that really meant something for Hannah's last project. I'm not sure what specifically I would change but just making it bigger and more group oriented.
I didn't set any goals for myself this year. Math is definitely not my area but I feel a tiny bit more confident with math just because we learned new content. I felt that math was easier to balance and maneuver around other classes for sure. I struggled a lot this year but it wasn't because of content or anything like that. I don't feel prepared but that's not because of the class itself. Hannah is amazing, it's just me and my struggles.
