Merit HLC C3

For my merit badge I decided to do the Home Learning Challenge C3, titled "Teach a family member how to use an ICT tool that they are unfamiliar with (like the Flip, Google docs or a specific App)". I taught her how to use a feature called Emoticons (or Emojis) as I thought that would benefit her the most, as she loves to post and text alot of her friends and had always been asking about what those tiny pictures in the text bubble meant.
First I walked her through how to use the emojis, showing her that it was as easy as tapping the smiley face picture on the keyboard. She was shocked to see so many little pictures across her keyboard and immediately told me "how do I get rid of it, it's too much on my eyes".
After she got used to the emoji keyboard, I showed her the other categories of emojis and he was even more shocked discovering that you can scroll down them to see even more of them. I showed her the "happy" emoji and the "sad" emoji along with some other staple emojis. I even ended up showing her some food emojis and she ended up adding some emojis to her facebook posts later.
Then I showed her stickers, found in most texting apps like Facebook, Snapchat and Whatsapp. I told her that you could download even more stickers and use them.

Alternative NZ Flags

I think that the flag should stay the same as we have now. There is no point in spending millions of money just to change the flag. So what if our flag kinda looks like the Australian flag. Soon our notes will end up looking like Australian notes. But if we would be changing flags my favourite one would be the second one.


Probability Reflective Blogpost

In Maths we have been learning to:

compare and describe the variation between theoretical and experimental distributions in situations that involve elements of chance.

calculate probabilities, using fractions, percentages, and ratios.

Here is a link to our online modelling book that supports this learning.

Here is some evidence of my learning. Include screenshots for all 4 of the IXL activities. Link to extended abstract text book activity ( make this link live with your learning) or include some images if you did this work in your Maths book.

Rough Justice Slater Mazes Text Book Activity
My next step is to continue to apply my knowledge of statistics and probability in a variety of real world situations and contexts.

In Current Events I covered these topics: The design of the Halswell Skate Park and I made a submission to the council. Donald Trump’s Refugee Plan Christchurch Earth Memorial The new Ngā Puna Wai Sports Facility The Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan with a submission to the council.
My favourite topic was Donald Trump's Refugee Ban because it was very interesting to me because of the recent political issues about Donald Trump recently.
Hereis a link to my learning on the Red Zone and Avon River Regeneration Plan.
