Couple of weeks ago, I handed in a poster related to Asteroid mining. I received the final score, and have a lot to improve on. However, I think my layout is clean and easy to read. Our task, was to create a poster in our opinions about asteroid mining. I supported asteroid mining, and think its a great idea, because some materials are limited on earth.
First off, I would need to double check my work before handing it in to the teacher. Not only that, I would of also liked to add more detail to my poster.
My layout is clear and easy to read, at the same time fun. I think this layout is effective because the main important key facts are in the middle, while the less important are at the bottom. I did not include any printed-photos but hand drawn photos.
What would you do differently if you did this again?
I would add more facts and detail to more important things, but also print-out real life pictures of the metal / chemical itself. I would also like to make my poster look more interesting by adding pictures, printed-out text and layout it in a different manner.
Overall, I think my poster looks really good and I am proud of it.
I chose a bar chart because you can the see the difference compared to other activities, but also how my heart-rate changed. Bar graphs are usually straight and tall.
My highest heart rate was when I was rock-climbing. I was nervous as this was my second time, but also I was worried I might fall. I recorded my heart-rate when I finished.
My results are not reliable, because every time you do the same activity, you have a different heart-rate. I think reliable means you have the same heart-rate every time you do the activity.
Everybody is different, and the more fitter, the more blood is pumped by the heart. Fitter means less heart beats, but more powerful. Less fit, means your heart has to constantly pump to deliver blood and oxygen around the body.
• The heart is a muscle.
• The heart has veins and arteries.
• The heart has 4 different chambers – which is which?
• Some parts of the heart wall are thicker than others – which parts
• The blood flows along a path through the heart
• The heart contains valves.
We measured our heartbeats in Science class. We used a sensor, connected to my computer, and we were assigned to see what our resting heart beat was, and how much it ascends when we walk up a step for a hundred seconds. We also recorded how long it would take for us to recover after we completed the second step.
- Stand still for 100 seconds
- Walk upon a step for 100 seconds
- Stop and rest for 200 seconds
According to your graph, what is your resting heart rate? Do you think this is accurate?
According to the graph and sensor, my resting heartbeat is 98bpm. It depends how the user interprets and uses the sensor. It was very good to pickup a beat and record for my test. However, we had to run Taro’s test many times, to complete and record his data. Sean and I only had to run the test once, so overall, it depends how the user holds and uses the sensor.
Explain how the graph would look different if you were fitter?
To be fitter, people would have a slower heartbeat and recover more quickly. I am generally not fit, and can not run long distances, however I was very surprised how I had a slower heartbeat than Taro.
We have been learning and experimenting many types of foods. I researched and experimented with a tomato. After all of our research and experimenting, we were assigned to make a presentation.
I achieved a 6 for Criteria B, and another 6 for Criteria C. I thought my presentation was good, however after reading my comments from my science teacher, I wish I could improve it. I did not complete my nutrient chart, however I used my research chart well. (Coming from the teacher ).
For our next task, I will read the task thoroughly and pay attention to my chart!
Today in Science class, we were mixing alcohols and normal tap water. We mixed it together and it was really bubbly. It was not something where you say “WOW!!” It was just, bubbly. Nothing interesting.
