today I will be reflecting on my latest project in scimatics the ultimate design challenge. In this project our goal was too make a 3D model that had at least 10 basic shapes.
in this project me and my partner dries decided to make a humvy which is a military vehicle which is like a Armored suv with a turret on the top. Since we were learning about surface area and volume we had to decide if we were going to make our model have maximum surface area or volume. Since the humvy’s are meant to carry troops we decided to make it for maximum volume to hold as many troops as possible. Then we got to work. I made most of the model with a few exceptions and dries did most of the calculations. This was a really efficient strategy since we had 2 iPads and instead of doing all the work by yourself and having 2 projects we decided to make 1 model with the both of us. Below I will show you the model that I made and the difference beetween my model and the actual vehicle
Now I will reflect on the coricular competency’s
Applying and Innovating:
I think that I showed this competency when I was collaborating with dries I think that I worked well with him and I think that we ended up doing a pretty good job, but I think that I still need to work on not gaming in class even when most of my work is done, I should use my class time to work on everything else that is due when I am done the assignment not game.
reasoning and analyzing:
I feel that I did a pretty good job on this competency, I demonstrated this by making at least 10 basic 3D shapes and I feel that I did a pretty good job with the model but I feel that I did quite a bit more on the model then my partner.
communicating and representing:
I feel that instead of doing some of the calculations in my head I should have put all of them on the page instead, but I do feel that I did a good job with the calculations but I will show more of my work next time.
