LAZER MAZE!(scimatics reflection post)

♣It was the last few weeks of school till winter break! But, this is actually the time for the most important projects.

Well that’s the time on the year where MY teachers do that, you don’t really have choice.

Anyways back on track, for this scimatics project we had to build Star Wars air crafts. Me and my group – Evelyn and simon- built Luke Skywalker’s x-wing fighter, but that wasn’t the point why we build it. The main reason is that we are trying to make and understand how and what a right triangle is. Most importantly the Curricular Competencies.

Big idea; Light energy can be transferred as both a particle and wave: The law of reflection is used to build a right angle triangle shaped laser path that will be on display at the exhibition. Refraction and interference are alsoΒ incorporated in the laser display.

Communicating and Representing; Represent
mathematical ideas in concrete, pictorial, and symbolic forms: Two sides are measured and the length of one side of the triangle is calculated and labeled using the pythagorean theorem.

Applying and innovating;Β Co-operatively design projects: The laser triangle is set up and labeled in an aesthetically interesting way and all group members contribute equally to setting up the room on exhibition day

Questioning and predicting;Β Demonstrate a sustained intellectual curiosity about a scientific topic or problem of personal interest: All class time is used efficiently for learning and project work without distractions

Bye for now!♣
