Python

In Multimedia class, we learned coding language which is Python. We start learning Python with the basic step such as writing with string, Boolean, Comparison, if statement, elif statement, else statement and role of and, or and not in Python. After learning the basic course of python, we start learning about for loop and while loop that contains break statement and continues statement. The computer has its own words like us human that’s why we need to learn their language to control the system for them to work. We also use code Academy to improve our skill in computer science. Here is some code of Python:

Decimals

Image result for decimal

In math class, we learn a different unit of math every day so for round 2 we learned about decimal. The beginning of class, it always the start of how you need to know and calculate it. For decimal, we start learning about the place of the decimal which the decimal start with tenth and continue to hundredth, thousandth and more. Calculate decimal is not difficult because it’s like calculate the whole number, but it weird when you multiply or divide with it. There are always tricks for math so is multiply and divide decimal. For multiplication, you need to move point to the left and for division move point to the right. The zero is always useless after the decimal. We also do Khan Academy to improve our decimal skill. For this term, it’s ended for decimal and continue to the next one.

 

Black Snake Experiment

The global moment of carbon between the abiotic environment, including the ocean and organisms, is known as the carbon cycle. Most of everything on earth is made out of carbon.

Thursday is an experiment for STEM class, so we did the black snake experiment. This is the formula of the black snake experiment:

  • 20 gram of sugar
  • One bowl of sand
  • 5 gram of baking soda
  • Some alcohol
  • A beaker
  • A lighter or match

The step to making:

  • First, put a full bowl of sand and wet it with alcohol
  • Second, mixed sugar and baking soda together in a beaker
  • Then, pour sugar and baking sugar out of the beaker and pour it in the middle of the sand
  • Finally, fire it with a lighter or match to make it burn and you will see the result

The Search for Identity

English Literacy always has its own theme for each school term and for this term our theme is about “The Search for Identity”. We are having our assessment which is reading a fictional book to identify the characters and having a discussion with our team about the story every week with different roles such as Inferencer, Summarizer, Symbolizer, Words Detector and Visualizer. For me, I am reading a book by John Green, Looking for Alaska. Like a quote from John Green about looking for Alaska written: “An only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive”.  That is why identify characters and author meaning in a book is very important. The way story in Looking for Alaska tell is more like a romance novel, but it’s also about a friendship that suffers together in a boarding school. However, in this class, we also create our own poems that inspire by George Ella Lyon who is a girl from Kentucky, United State. I have my own poem which is about “I am from” that related to our theme. This is my poem:

I am from a tricycle,

from Dumex and gruel

I am from the Lumber smooth

I am from the jujube

The java apple whose long gone limbs I remember as if they were my own.

 

I’m from red pocket and Caishen,

from Grandmother and Father

I’m from gathering and sharing,

and from remembering.

 

I’m from spirit told and helping,

and “S’art Jea Nix” that sing along

I’m from Lunar New Year

I’m from the Red Cross sign and Cantonese spiderweb,

family recipe cookies and marine under the river

from a flow of the river from China,

Grandma ends up in Steung Treng

Bracelet of working hard

In my heart, the achieve after Bloodshed

In Khmer Literacy, we learned about different old Cambodian stories, but we were more focusing on a story which called “Kolab Pailing” or in English meant “Rose of Pailin”. This is a summary of the story:

It’s a story of a man named “Chet” who his father died and had to go to work at Pailin which is one of the Cambodia provinces as a gem collector. He’s a clever man and had treated his boss perfectly including his intelligent daughter. It’s a story that talks about the love of different class of people which was a daughter of a wealthy family that in love with a man who works for her father as a gem collector. It told the story of struggle and the betray of a high-class people in society.

Traditional Food Exploration

This is a traditional food exploration which we are focusing on explore tradition in Cambodia, story behind each dish, to understand the transformation of Cambodian traditional foods from the past to the present and future and discover and share how food impacts family, society, and culture. To find good answers for our goal, we need to go on the trip and interview some of the professional chefs to see the different perspective from them. As we interviewed them, we found two different definitions of Cambodian food and Khmer food. From a perspective of chef Joannes Riviere who own Cuisine Wat Damnak restaurant in Siem Reap said that “Cambodia food and Khmer food is different. Cambodia food is some kind of food that influenced by other countries but has been eaten in Cambodia a long time ago. For Khmer food is foods or recipe that created by our ancestors themselves.” For chef Kethana who own Sugar Palm restaurant in Siem Reap said that “There are no differences between Cambodia food and Khmer food.” To end our exploration successfully, we had created a blog called “Khmer Cuisine”.

English Literacy, Justice

Literacy has been increase in this past few year. I learnt different type of sentences until paragraphs and now essay. Last year, our class mostly written about descriptive essay and now we are writing argumentative essay. Before starting to write the argumentative essay, we learnt the SDGs goal which was Environmental Justice that were talking about the minority group in Connecticut. Also, we have been assign to have four team which had a different country that is talking about people who are staying in the landfill. Also, we got to know a little bit about the data of civil justice in Southeast Asia. To end the goal, we learnt more about social Justice and how the problems affect us. To come to conclusion of the term, now we are writing a argumentative about our past explorations that are solving problems or somethings related to SDGs goal.

The Three Type of Bond

This is the second term of learning Physical science is about the three bonding. They are Covalent bond, ionic bond and metallic bond. It seems that the name is really different to each other, but the explanation is similar. Ionic bond is a bond that one element give give the electrons to other element. For example, Sodium gives its electron to Chlorine. Covalent bond is a bond that  elements share each other electrons. For instance, Oxygen share electrons with other Oxygen element. Metallic bond is a bond that one element shared electron with other element. For example, Copper and Silver.

Geometry and Ratio

This is the second term of 2018 – 2019. We finished Primary Mathematics 5A book and about to start the new one. For this term, we are learning Geometry and Ratio a lot which give the ideas what it’s like to measure shapes and using ratio as a daily life in the future. For example, if you having a job and you need to manage your money on needs, wants and save which ratio would help. It’s also help comparing the different between things easily especially, gender.

Example of having job and need to be decide in other needs, wants and save

For geometry, we are focusing a lot on finding areas especially for triangles and rectangles. As we start learning geometry, it’s leaning from first by counting grid and later calculation until solving harder and harder problems. Sometimes, it’s hard as it more difficult for the word problems, but that’s things need to be challenge in math. However, solving problems always have technique to solve it easily especially try to understand it at the very first start.

Photography Basic

As I said in the description of me that hobby make me become a great photographer. I like photography in this reality world. In my multimedia class which I learned more basic about photography which is the exposure triangle, it consist Shutter speed, Aperture and ISO. These are basic knowledge that we make our photos better and its editable, but mostly photographers use modes in camera as Aperture mode which easier to be flexible by using it.

 

Shutter speed is one mode in the exposure triangle that mostly used to capture motion. It’s measure in fraction of a second. The higher the shutter speed is, it can captured motion easily, but it’s will bring less light. The lower the shutter speed is, it will bring more light, but can’t easily captured the motion.

Aperture is the size of opening lens that let the lights come through the camera. The wide aperture will has a shallow depth of field. The narrow  aperture will has a deep depth of field which is good for landscape, scenery and long shot. Depth of field is the changes of the background which change into blurry or not.

ISO is how sensitive your camera is to light. Once we have no more choice to let the light come through the camera by changing Aperture or Shutter speed, we would want to increase the ISO. When higher the ISO, the more noise it will create in your photo which make it hard for editing and also it’s don’t look good.

With this technique, it’s will make photo has a good quality with it, but also we technique to take photo and different angle to make it more effective, give more details and showing emotion. Most photographer use Long shot, Full shot, Medium shot, Close up, Extreme close up, Low angle, High angle, Eye level, Dutch angle/tilt, over the shoulder or bird’s eye view.
