What was I Trying to Find Out?
In the world, problem solving has been selected to be the most relevant skills needed in order for human beings to survive dominantly on this planet in the future. Therefore, in this unit, we learned how to train your mind to think of deductive reasonings to find resolutions to various types of conflicts and understand the usage of them in the future.
What did I Discover?
After doing some random calculations, I have discovered that the answer for the first problem is 12, 17 and 8 because the rule of the problem is that the addition of the numbers in the squares should result in the numbers of the circles. Therefore, if you calculate all of the possibilities that can be the resolution to the problem, you will find out that adding the number 8, 17 and 12, will result to one of the numbers in the circle which are 20, 29, and 25.
What Surprised me?
What surprised me during this unit is that even though not always, in the future, deductive reasoning will be one of the most relevant skill you might need to accomplish because as technology improves, it may start to destroy human lives. Therefore, in case that happens, we need to be aware of what is the conflict and what is the best way to find the resolution to it.
What was I Good at?
During this unit, I think I was good at figuring out the possibilities which needs to be eliminated because I listed all the possibilities in my notebook and tried different equations by using it carefully to find the best solution to solve the problem without having any possible consequences.
What do I still need to Practice?
However, I think I still need to practice understanding the connections between patterns and deductive reasoning because deductive reasoning is a method to solve patterns, but if you don't understand about it, in the future, the knowledge you might be using to achieve your goals might be unbalanced for you to improve yourself.
For conclusion, I hope everybody can understand the connection between patterns and deductive reasoning to make the world a better place in the future.
It's about time we need to say good bye to our precious measurement unit. In this unit, there were things that worked out very well, new things that I should improve and effective curiosities from interesting videos, pictures and data. These are the things that happened during this unit.
What things did I Improve and How?
The things that I have improved is that I finally mastered how to convert measurements in different units because in the last few weeks, I have struggled figuring out the rule of converting measurements into kilo, centi and milli. Therefore, I kept on getting wrong answers, so I needed to solve it over and over again until I found the resolution. However, as I learned the milli, centi and kilo rule, I now, understand how to convert different measurements into various units.
What was Difficult and why was it Difficult?
I find out converting time into different units is the hardest thing to do because there are no specific rules about them and it keeps on changing when you convert them into bigger or smaller units. For example, you can convert seconds into hours by keep on dividing it into 60, but as it get to days, you need to divide it into 24, 12 and many more.
How can you use this Math on my Life
I think the knowledge I can use on my life is that up to 11 years, I have used the computer for 1.7 years because technology is improving so fast that people are spending almost half of their lives on their devices without achieving anything that you motivated or interested at. However, by using this knowledge, I can tell myself that devices are good resources for your life, but if you use it too much, it can be a bad influence for me.
What is the Best way for me to Improve my Mathematical Thinking?
I think the best way for me to improve my mathematical thinking is that I should keep measuring variety of subjects to find out interesting results because as I keep on discovering things that I want know about, there would be a new curiosity I want to research in mathematical ways. For example, how did scientists exactly calculated the location of where Neptune using math when technology didn't improve and if a person goes in a water tank which is filled up with water, the amount of water that you spilled as you went in the container is the exact volume of yours, so how water forms interesting results as you have an experiment with it. There are still lots of things that I need to know about this amazing world!!!
For conclusion, it has been an amazing experience to have experiments using different tools to find out interesting results and have a new curiosity which is related to it.
What were I Trying to Find Out?
We lived on this planet for millions of years viewing the amazing world with our own eyes. With this kind of view and experience, human economy grew really fast. But, have you ever wondered what kind of things that we can't still see? Our human eyes can only see a little tiny part from what's there in the entire universe. Some of those things might be around you as you learn, cook or even drive. In this unit, we tried to answer some of those curiosities by watching the documentary below. From this, we have learned what's still out there far more to be discovered.
What did I Discover?
I have discovered that there are many things which are too fast, too slow, too small, and too big to see, but as technology improves over time, we would be able to discover the truths about these mysteries and keep on asking these questions of how did the world form. For example, depending on scientists, they say that one hydrogen atom created the universe by forming relevant things which have various features like invisibility.
What Surprised me?
What surprised me was that the universe was formed with only several hydrogen atoms because these atoms have mysterious power to create this amazing world of human civilizations, the beautiful environment and even the multiverse. For example, when you separate uranium neutrons and protons apart, it will create a huge energy to destroy everything that is left in Earth.
What were you Good at?
I think I was good at understanding the difference between the things that we can see and what we can't because I kept on my asking myself how is this too fast, too slow, too small and too big to see using the knowledge I already knew about these things. For example, as I saw ultraviolet in this video, I kept on asking myself how can't we see ultraviolet and as I already knew ultraviolet is a light ray, I guessed that it was a fast moving matter and I was correct.
What do I need to Practice?
I think I need to practice documenting new things I learned from a video, image and etc.. because if you don't record your learning, after having a good experience, you will forget about the new things that you learned which can be used to improve yourself. For example, when I didn't document my learning properly in my math book, I forgot about how can we treat cancer in the future using the technology of something to small to see which means I need to solve my curiosity again.
What do I want to know now?
Now, I want to know what is the smallest particle on Earth because since you never know what is the end of space, I wonder if there is a limit to how much small particles are. For example, around year 1900, scientists have discovered that there was something far smaller than atoms which are electrons, nucleus, protons, and neutrons.
What are Trying to Find Out?
In these days, technology is improving so much. Therefore, almost every people who is living on Earth is watching their screens on the iPad, iPhone or even a computer. In this unit, we were figuring out how much time did I spend on a device over 11 years and how much time will I spend on a device until I die.
What did you Discover?
After doing lots of calculations I found out that I spent my whole life on the computer for 1.7 years. That means over the last 11 years, I spent my life on the computer for 2 hours per day which is ashort periods of time, but if you add it all up to how much days I am living here, it will be a crazy amount. This is the calculation I did for this unit.
