Coding Challenge

          Coding is one of the most boring topics that I think from last year after seeing cohort 1 doing coding and it was so messy and looking so annoying for me. After learning an essential(Multimedia/Technology), I started to get more ideas about coding and now I feel that I really want to improve on. Everyone knows that coding is hard, but whenever that think of coding, I feel that I really love it and really want to get better at coding. During this round, there is a coding challenge that Cindy assign us to do coding and one of the challenges that I chose is turtle racing. There are so many problems and there are so many challenges that I have to take and learn how to do all of those. I learned a lot of things from this project and one of the things that I learned from this project it applies to team working. I can say that Nirorn and I worked with each other even though we do not know if you allow us to work with each other or not. Nirorn and I have to work with each other because we want to improve more in teamwork skills along with that both of us isn’t so good at this skill. We learn a lot with each other and we have to brain and teamwork make everything work and even though we didn’t finish all of the challenges, but we both happy with what we have right now. 

Percentage

          This round in math class was so amazing because I can learn what I want to learn. The percentage is very important that everyone should understand how it’s working and ways that we can figure out the percentage of a number of something. We deeply focused on a lot of interesting strategies about finding Percentage in different ways that the problem gives. We also have a test on this lesson and I did so well on the test and I think that I have shown a lot of improvement with this lesson which is percentage. We will be using a lot of percentage with our daily life including discount and many more. After this lesson end, we also learn about Angle. Angle is when to line met together at one point. 

Identity | Monster book

          English literacy theme for this round 3 was about identity. This theme was so excited for me just after a few days I learn in this lesson. one of the projects that we have is to read the book that related to identity which I chose a book called Monster. At first, I almost give up with this book, because it is so difficult to remember the character’s name. There are over 20 characters in the book and it is so hard to remember all of their name and their role in the book. I talked with Hannah(my English Literacy facilitator) and she gave me a lot of good start with this book and I did some flash card on Quizzlet and I started to put everything that I have to remember all of the character’s name and role. I rate myself that I was doing so good that I can’t describe and this is a life skill for me to keep it in my head forever and that is not to give up unless I try all of my best to do it. This book (Monster) is a really good book for us to read, but I recommend you to have a note of all the characters(as I mention) in the book because there are a lot of characters in the book and a lot of them should be recognized by you and remember all of them and what is their role in the book. The one that willing to be a lawyer, you should read this book. In the book, there are a lot of strategies for the lawyer and the strategies of argument.

Volume of Rectangle Prisms

On this school round, math class has to focus on a lesson called Volume of Rectangle Prisms. The volume of Rectangle Prisms might be a really easy lesson for us to learn if we know the formula. The formula of finding the volume of the rectangle prism is width time height time length = volume of rectangle prisms(shortcut = V equal to W x H x L).

We were having a Volume of Rectangle Prisms test on quizzes.com and it was so amazing for me. Some questions were so fast that I have to use the time very wisely and do all the math on my paper and I have to do a lot multiplying. After the test and I look at my score, it so impressed for me! I got a very good scored on this test. 

 

Coding in Python

          Python is one of the programming languages for the computer. In Multimedia/Technology we have learned a lot of Python language and practicing coding as our assignment. I never learned Python or even any of the programming language yet, but after this learning round, I was so interested in computer science including Python. There are a lot of things that we learned from Cindy(Multimedia/Technology facilitator) such as Booleans, Comparisons, Indentation, If statement, Eif statement, Ese statement, And, Or, Not, etc. Every week we always have the assignment as we have learned a lesson. I was having a lot of struggles during many assignments. One of the hardest assignment that I get so stressed about it is finding the prime number. On the day that Cindy teaching us about the lesson that related about finding the prime number, I was on a trip for my exploration and it was so hard for me as my brain thinking too much solution to find the prime number. I was asking my friends and asking them to help me and explain to me include giving me some clue on the assignment. Badly I wasn’t understand anything that my friends told me. I go on the internet and search for the prime number. There is a website load on the top and give me the definition of prime number. I read the definition and I understood how to find the prime number and luckily I can solve the assignment. I was so happy and excited about solving this really hard coding assignment. Here is my code to find the prime number.

Lab Report | STEM

+ Ingredients:

  • Baking soda  
  • Sugar
  • Sand
  • Alcohol
  • lighter/etc that can make fire…
  • zippo lighter fluid(we  didn’t use it actually, but it is fine if you use it) 

+ Instruction:

          First, we have a ratio of baking soda and sugar is 1 to 4. Mix the baking soda and sugar together then. We do need a cup of sand and first of all, we have to put the alcohol all over the sand and next, we will have to put the mixture of baking soda and sugar as a mount on the sand. After that, we should put some more alcohol on the mixture of baking soda and sugar. Lastly, we have to light up on the sand that fills with alcohol and the chemical reaction will happen.

+ Reaction report:

          After we burn it for a few seconds, we will see some black things growing up and making some kind of smell(the smell isn’t bad!). The black things or we can call it fire snake started to grow slowly and taller.

+ After reaction:

          We took that fire snake and it was almost like some kind of dust, but it is harder then dust. We can hold it and it was big and my hands become black after touching the fire snake.

+ How did that happen in my opinion?

          When the mixture of baking soda and sugar burn, the baking soda gets hot and it will release carbon dioxide gas. The pressure from the CO² gas will pushes and form the black thing or fire snake.

Khan Challenge

On Thursday 31st January, Samantha had assigned us to research one of the topics that related to Pre-algebra course in Khan Academy. After we choose our topic, we have to teach that topic to our teams. I was really interested in a topic related to adding a negative number.   

negative numbers from 1 to 4

When we add negative numbers and negative numbers together, the number won’t get a bigger number, but the number is started to decrease as we add a negative number together. Let’s say that we start the number from Zero. When we talk about positive numbers, it will go to the right count from Zero and a negative number will go to the left from Zero. If we add a negative number together just like we have negative 2 plus with negative 2 it will become negative 4. We already have negative 2  that count from Zero to the left and if we add another negative 2 which mean that we have added two number to the left and it will become negative 4.    

Experiment

This round in STEM class, we have been doing a lot of experiments during the class. One of the experiment that I love and I wanted to share with you is putting mentos into coke. I usually see them tasting and doing this experiment in youtube, but during this class I can see how it work and see it in my eyes clearly. I never think that chemical reaction is realy, but after I’d learn STEM for entier of hours, I can change of lot of things that I thought crazily before and making a real process of understanding of science work.  

Outdoor Leadership Exploration

Outdoor Leadership is a really interesting exploration to learn as life experience. On the first day of learning in this class, I found out an answer to a question that I never think of before and the question “What does nature mean to me?” and this is what I wrote: 

My feeling less Max with stress, 

My heart got mess all around, 

I dream I’m drown in a nightmare, 

Stress is what I needed to share, 

On one would dare they will take, 

Expressing mind blind my fear, 

Anything that near cheer their happiness, 

I ask them how you don’t have stress? 

They said we express to nature, 

Relax is all meaning to me, 

If feeling free to me it’s nature,

Don’t you understand my bro and sister, 

Stressful won’t occur forever on one, 

Nature means to me is relaxing, 

Stress that coming won’t exist, 

Viewing all days may at least, Relax and breathe that the meaning.  

– Ratanak

This is a poem that written by me and I was so impressed that I could find out the answer to this question. This is exploration we also having trips that going outdoor. I spend those time wisely, because I didn’t want to leave all of those nature, all of those beautiful trees and waterfall and that trip have connected me with nature really well. Below will be all of my reflection from the trips and please take it seriously as you read along my words:

On thursday, an exploration called Outdoor Leadership have leaving the Liger campus to Kirirom National Park in Kampong Speu province. All of the stuffs set and everyone are good for the night. We went to a waterfall called the first waterfall. Quietly see the dark cloup that flying around the water. It was raining today and the nature are moisture with the wind blowing their leaves. Many people are visiting this place and most of them are playing with water and having fun together. The waterfall was great and peaceful and the water are flowing around, some of them are flowing between rocks and some are not. Water was really cold that it can make me freeze, even there is sunlight but the wind just defeat their strongness and the day become really cold. Along the road we can see a lot of pine tree and insects over there. It’s really tired to hike, but nature just release tiredness all from me. An earthworm that as big as a snake is incredible, but I saw two of those. It’s big and long and they look a little bit scary when their body stuck with dust. If watching waterfall all day it could by my passion and all the thing around I could imagine more than it does. This trip make me feel a lot of fun and along tired, but it can’t gave me up.
