Collision Simulation Lab

The new topic that we’re focusing on is momentum. My facilitator, Sam, had first explained and gave us a general idea what is momentum. Then, she gets in-depth where she gave us the formula and do some examples problems. Moreover, we had also do a simple lab on the first day which is mainly focused on objects colliding and the momentum of each object.


Just a few weeks ago, in literacy class, we were preparing for our first reading and language use’s  practice SAT. We were doing taking this test on one of the most effective learning website, Khan Academy.

Our tips to on taking this test are to not stress out about the test. Nevertheless, we should start with reading the questions and the given choices first before we do because some of the questions don’t require us to read the whole passage to answer. One of the easier ways is to follow the process of elimination the answer choices. That mean, in each question there will be some obvious answer that is not something that the question wants, so we can eliminate that one out. Most importantly, we should check for the key words in each answer because one word can change the whole meaning of the answer choice.

Another important thing is that we should try to do all the questions even if we are not sure with the answer. After I took the test, I just realized that I left too many questions which will take out a lot of my points. However, if I were to do all of the questions even with guessing, I might have get some more points 



AP Statistic

This year in math, about half of the senior cohort and I had taken the hardest course we ever took before. The course is AP Statistic, college level in term of math. It is really challenging for me because it does not only require me to know how to do the math but it also requires me to understand the context and using concise words to answer the question. Another challenge is to use the TI 8 calculator to construct the different type of graphs. Since I am a person who does not remember the steps well, so I got messed up a lot during the calculation practices. However, I really glad to be in this class where I got another opportunity to do something that cool, above my grade.

Headline (copy): Health

Topic (copy):Dirty air from China is blowing across the ocean and polluting California

Lexile Level (different for each): 860L

Summary (10-12 sentences telling the major ideas; who, what, where when, why, how):

This article is about the polluting the air and it can make people have a disease for their lungs. The smog it blew from China and across the Pacific ocean to California. It’s increasing the ozone in Western States when the ozone from China because they have more and more ozone. When the smog blow from China to California it only take about a week to across the Pacific ocean. It was a bad thing and for the people that live in Western States because it can make them have a bd health. One scientist name Faloona said that the ozone (the gas in the air polluting) is come from transportation like cars, trucks and factories. When the smog have blew from China to California then U.S have add more ozone because in California also the drive the cars and have factories. However This two countries would work together to stop the polluting but U.S need to work harder because the smog not go any where else it just stay in California. Also this mean that the pollution have a lot and it really easy to make us sick and die.

Favorite part:

  • When I read this article, I didn’t that the smog can blow really far like in this article blowing from China and across Pacific ocean and got to California. Also it take a quick time to get that smog to California only about a week. It was hard to believe for me. However, if we have a smog it really bad for our health so we need to take care of yourself more. The cause to make this problem because in China they have a factories and they drive a transportation so it pollute the air a lot.

Would you recommend it? (yes/no): Yes

If yes, who would you recommend it to?: (people who like…)

  • To people who live in China, Don’t use a lot of the gas if the place that not far so we can you our feet to walk don’t need to drive a car or moto. For the factories they shouldn’t use a lot of gas too
