I am in grade 7 math class, and Mr. Fedley is my teacher. This semester, our units were ratios, algebra, angles, and statistics. One of the example for statistics is my Blog Post. I think I did well in angles and algebra, and also statistics. I completed and enjoyed going to the Marine Tower. I liked going to the Marine Tower as a field trip. I think I want to focus on math next year is ratios, because I think I am not good at solving ratio problems.
For Humanities, we had a project about The History of Yokohama. We had to do a presentation, and we needed to come up with a question. My question was How did Shopping in Yokohama Change throughout time? I used haikudeck for this project, using the iPad. We went to a field trip around Yokohama, but I couldn’t take many pictures because we didn’t do things about shopping much. I went around Yokohama, and took pictures about it afterwards. For my Presentation, all the pictures I used are the pictures that I took or the ones that my aunt took because she lives in Yokohama. I think the presentation did okay because I don’t think my script was that good, compared to the slides.
You can look at the presentation HERE.
I think the iPad was sort of useful because it had apps like Haikudeck, and Coach’s Eye that was only available on the iPad. I think Haiku Deck was useful because you can see your script, and when you present, the script won’t show to the audience, but you can see it. I used this for my Humanities Presentation of History of Yokohama. I used that because one of my friends said that you can see the script and it won’t show.
I think Coach’s Eye is useful because you can record easily on your iPad, and easily edit it, and you can look at it in slow-motion, and more. You can only do this on a iPad, so I think it was useful than a laptop. I used that for PE because we needed to make one with our throwing for one of our assessment.
What I didn’t like about it was that most of the things we used in school, such as iMovie, google drive was the things that you can do on the laptop. I thought the iPad was useless because you need to bring it to school, when you already have it on your laptop, and I think a laptop can do more things than a iPad.
People shop more at Landmark Tower than China Town. It opened on 1993, which is quite recent.
The shopping population Yokohama Shopping Street decreased through time. The shopping street started before World War 2 as a place selling food and daily commodities.
Takashimaya is was built a long time ago, and is still popular. It is one of the buildings that are popular now, but the popularity decreased throughout time.
Another example is Yokohama Station. It was really popular for shopping before, but it isn’t popular now.
Costco opened in October, 2004, which is recent. It is very popular now, and one of the reasons is because it is recent.
As I said, Chinatown changed a lot during history because first it was for daily shopping, but now it is more for tourists.
I think shopping in Yokohama changed a lot throughout time, even in about the last 50 years.
This was originally made for a presentation. This is the presentation, that I made.
In Technology Class, after our first unit, Digital Storytelling, we did our second and final unit, Fair Game. For our Fair Game unit, we needed to use minecraft and we needed to make a theme park, but it needed to fit the theme. That was our assignment.
IS CHILD LABOR NECESSARY OR IS IT ONLY HURTING CHILDREN?
In art, we just finished our unit, “Make your mark.” This unit was about line drawing. Line drawing is about drawing with lines, but only with values, black and white. We practiced the line techniques, such as cross-hatching, hatching, stipple, scumble (cringle), and more.

Practicing on 3-D shapes
In PE, we had a dance unit. We had to copy a just dance video, but for 1 minute, we needed to make our own part, and perform it in front of the class. My partner was Hyewon.
This week is the digital citizenship week. We did a lot of things today.
Digital citizenship basically means to me, how we use technology in a good way. So,we did an activity in tutor class. We needed to take a picture of you doing social network, or something that involves technology, and post it on the internet. I did it with Emma. S, Ayaka, and Lisa.
I’m the one who is on the screen.
