In math we are learning about Surface Area and Volume. I was talking to my peers this morning, asking them, "Which one is harder? Surface Area? Or Volume?" Four of seven students think that Surface Area is harder. This is why I am going to explain how to calculate Surface Area and Volume today.
Here is an example of a Three-Dimensional prism.
To find the Surface Area of this rectangular prism we first have to multiply the dimensions to find the area of each face. To find the Area of the top and bottom faces, we would multiply 4x3x2= 24. To find the area of one of the sets of faces, we would multiply 4x5x2= 40. To find the other set of faces, we would multiply 3x5x2= 30. Now, because we have all the calculations, we have to add the area of the faces together. 24+40+30= 94, so the Surface Area of the rectangular prism is 94 units squared.
To find the Volume of the prism we would multiply 3x4x5= 60, so the Volume of the rectangular prism is 60 units cubed.
I have always thought about the question,
"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
And after 12 years of contemplation, I have come to the conclusion that I would like to be a Motivational Speaker. So I decided to practice. I took some of my ideas from the nike motivational video called "Rise and Shine, Welcome to the Grind" Here is my practice speech, inspired by that video.
Dream Behind Lauren Kennedy What do you want in life? Just ask yourself that, you don’t
need to come up with the answer right away, just think. Never let anybody tell you that you can't. Never let anybody tear
you apart. I know it may seem hard now, but the
only person that is stopping you is yourself.
One step toward living your dreams is to become friends with yourself. Becoming friends with yourself
can give you Confidence, Honesty, Trustworthiness, Respect, Humbleness, and many
more qualities that can help you live your life to the greatest potential. It
doesn’t matter how ma…
Analysis on Experiment Lauren Kennedy, Emilie Mutoniwabo, Jamie Lanzen, Rebecca Baril Our experiment was testing out how different types of vinegar mixed with baking soda can change the distance a plastic water bottle travels when baking soda and vinegar are mixed in the water bottle. Our hypothesis was that the apple cider vinegar was going to make the rocket move the farthest, because it had the most acids, such as acetic acids and amino acids. During our experiment, we found out that neither of the types of vinegar made the water bottle move at all. All it did was foam out of the bottle, but it didn’t move. If we do this experiment again, a couple things we might do are get a lighter water bottle or add in more vinegar and baking soda to result in more of a chemical reaction.
