As the last day of PBL today, I will have to work hard on getting my project #3 done since It is due today in class. But first I had to do some last practice, So I Decided to work on geometry for 15 minutes in Khan Academy, and I got a streak of 5 questions which was pretty good, which means i have improvements in geometry, I also did a little bit of Pre-calculus to just experience it, I didn’t really get it as much, but for this topic It needs a lot of practice. I was also finishing up my project 3 in class, and I was basically doing a graph with information as my product, and it’s all about indigenous languages with family members of friends, to see if indigenous languages sill live around the Latin America today, or if it’s only Spanish no a days. We also worked with the construction paper. I worked on making a mayan crown to represent indigenous languages, but it didm;’t workout, so now I have to finish my project at home and turn it in by tomorrow. But so far everything has been really good this year.
Today I will be working on Opened, and I practiced assignments of science 1 for practice on the ACT. A lot of those questions were based on eels on how they developed and lived in the Sargasso sea. It was kind of complicated, but I used the skills of re-reading again since reading the passage more than once can benefit you a lot, in answering questions, but as well as in learning new words or vocabulary that can benefit you a lot for the future. I also saw a video that teaches you in transitions, and I am currently still watching it, it lasts about 8 minutes, but it also shows you about finding main ideas and details in passages. I have also been working on my project #3 where I already have 4 sources, and I plan on doing my product by tomorrow. My product will probably be a chart about Latino students ethnic background, and asking them if they have indigenous languages that they speak or family speaks.
Today in PBL class i will be doing some opened, since i need to improve more on my English. I am doing Analyze a complex set of ideas and explains how they develop overall is what I am currently working on, since it is usually my reading tests that i come out worse at in star testing, the first passage I am reading is about the coca cola company being advertised on TV, and it tells me about only 2 questions, but they are tough so I will need to read a lot of time over pieces in order to understand it better and so I can become a better user at this skill. The first time I tried to get the answers, I only got one correct, so I read one more time, then I got both answers correct, It is always good to re-read stories, because you can find a better understanding of it. But overall my practice was good, I am kind of sleepy, but it was good.
Today in PBL class I came back from my long trip to Mexico, and Hopefully I didn’t lose my skills, so today I will practice half an hour on math, and about 20 on English to see if I didn’t lose anything. It looks like my algebra skills are currently still good, especially in my expressions with decimals, variables, and fractions, they are still the same.
