Math Reflection

Hey guys this is my math reflection. Get some juice, but don’t forget the snack.

For this unit, I was was good at recognizing maximum, minimum, mode, mean, and range. Maximum means max. Minimum means lowest. Mode means most often. Mean means the average. Range is the maximum minus the minimum. I was also good at the traditional multiplication method. I loved multiplying 2 digits by 2 other digits. I could multiply decimals. I was awesome at identifying numbers. I was good at addition and subtraction with whole numbers and decimals. I can also write numbers in expanded notations. The last thing I was good at is writing and solving number sentences.

The one thing I really have to improve in math is double checking. My plan is to check my homework twice to get in the habit of doing it. What I was bad in this unit was making magnitude estimates. It was usally because I got t (more…)

Civilization reflection

Hey guys this is my reflection about my social studies. Get a snack and juice and sit down to read this.

For my social studies project, I researched and told my classmates how to start a civilization. First, they needed to know where to live and what to do in order to survive.

First, I researched how old civilizations survived. My strength was that I had some good resources. I had Britanica encyclopedia and Brain POP. I learned a lot about the Aztecs, the Egyptians, the Sumerians, Japanese, and the Chinese. I think I researched well because it was easy to give examples from history. I need to work on having one or two examples from two or more civilizations. On this project, when I did economy, I only had two examples from one civilization.

Second, I sketched what I wanted my presentation to look like. When I wrote my script, I felt I had a lot of information. When I was done one cultural universe, I imagined what the slide would look like. However, I didn’t make the slides until after I finished the script. Next time I think it would be better if I made the slide when I am working on the script because I had some pictures that had nothing to do with some slides.

Then I had to create my keynote. It was hard for me to find pictures on the Internet. I found a lot of pictures, but not all the pictures worked. I had to also remember that nomads idea of Techology is the wheel when my idea for Techology is an iPad. It was really hard memorizing all the words I wanted to say, but I learned a trick that you can take notes and see it when the audience only sees the slide. Next time I need to practice my presentation more so that I am fully prepared.

My classmates gave feedback. The four things they scored were: loud and clear, speed of presentation, design, and did it make sense. A 4 is exemplary, 3 is proficient, 2 is for approaching or ok, 1 is Concern or bad. I know I was loud and clear, but at the beginning I was a little quiet. I had a good pace, not too fast but a little slow. I thought I made a lot of sense throughout my presentation.

Design was my biggest problem in the feedback. My Techology and leisure didn’t transition very well into economy. I also had a picture with an iPad which had nothing to do with my presentation. Also, I had many 2s for my feedback. Next time I present, I will make sure I have good design. Maybe I should practice my presentation more so I won’t be nervous. I also should ask people to help me in design so I could get better grades. I could also ask the some of my friends if it makes sense.
