All right, so this blog post is going to be short and concise. I’m going to be talking about answering the driving question and how I showed the competencies.
How can models change over time?
It changes by showing how your variables and project will change overtime as your project or other thing continues.
Competency: reasoning and analyzing.
- Definition: estimate reasonably.
Proof: I had to estimate the decimal difference between Great British Pounds and Canadian Dollars. I often has to round up the difference in the prices when I converted the currencies.
Competency: connecting and reflecting.
- Definition: connect mathematical concepts and other areas and personal interest.
Proof: during the project, I was able to link two-step equations to linear graphing, as well as estimating sums to planning a road trip.
Competency: communicating and representing.
Definition: represent mathematical ideas in concrete, pictorial, and symbolic forms.
Proof: I showed my proficiency in this competency during the linear graphing portion. I showed symbolic forms through the variables, and I showed mathematical ideas in my budget planing.
