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.
