Martin Luther King ( DLO ) Creative Strand

Intro: Last week we were given the opportunity to create a movie based on an event of our choice . We had to think of something that was different , that would stand out from all the rest. So we both agreed on researching Martin Luther King , I Have A Dream.
We wrote a rap together, rehearsed it , recorded it then we made a animation to go along with it.
The reason why we chose Martin Luther King was because he is a true hero to us all, he stopped racism back in 1963 when he spoke his mind with a speech called “ I Have A Dream”

Positives: I really enjoyed working on this project because not only did we create animations we also learned a lot of information about Martin Luther King, he set his people free from racism so that the blacks would have the same rights as the whites. Blacks had experienced things that no one should ever experience it was horrible, but thanks to Martin Luther King he put a stop to it.

Negatives: (Things to work on) I personally think that Alexandria and I could have managed our time better, so that we could create a more detailed animation with awesome editing. I didn't like the fact that we had to wait for IMAC’S and by the time we were given one , we were rushed to upload our video to vimeo but we weren't quite finished with our editing!!

Interesting: The thing that I found interesting about this project was how much knowledge we had gained in a week, we had learned so much about Martin Luther King in such a small space of time. The other thing was , how cool our rap was!!

 This week was awesome, but next time we will definitely manage our time better. We will work harder and we will make a more detailed movie with a good message to go along with it.

Alexandria & Jay Decimal DLO

The question that we are doing is about Decimals. We are going to have to add the decimal all up to get our answer. The question is that Andrew weighs 45.6kg and his cat weighs 4.8kg, so we have to add 45.6 and 4.8 together.

The strategy that we are going to use is rounding one of the decimal numbers to the nearest ten. First we will add 0.2 to 4.8 and then takeaway 0.2 from 45.6. So the question now will be 
5 + 45.4 the reason that we took away 0.2 from 45.8 after adding 0.2 to 4.8 is to balance the numbers or there will be two much.

So now we will have to add 45.4 and 5 together.We know that 5 and 45 will add up to 50 then we just add the leftover 0.4 and the answer we got is 50.4

( DLO ) Reflection.

Yellow Hat - I enjoyed working alongside Alex ( My DLO Partner) also animating and editing together for the movie.

Blue Hat - I didn't like the fact that  we didn't have enough time to do a proper animation. But I think personally that Alexandria and I should've used our time wisely.

Green Hat - The thing I found interesting was as we were animating and creating our DLO we learned a lot about Martin Luther King , like where he came from, what was his speech about, who he  was he married etc.

White Hat - I learned alot of things, I learned that Martin Luther King was a hero and he brought peace to America.

My Maths Strategy ( DLO )

So Dairy one sells 36 ice blocks and 3/4 of these ice blocks are raspberry. Dairy Two sells 28 ice blocks and 3/7 of these are raspberry. Which dairy sells the most raspberry ice blocks??

Dairy One: Well first of all I know that 9 times 4 equals 36 and 9 times 3 equals 27 so there is 27 raspberry ice blocks for dairy one.

Dairy Two: First of all I know that 28 divide 7 equals 4 and 4 times 3 equals 12 so there is 12 raspberry ice blocks in dairy two.

So Dairy One wins because Dairy one has 27 raspberry ice blocks and Dairy Two only has 12.
