VINCENT's Developing Expert Voices Project

THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN UPDATED. I'm just so glad this is off my shoulders now! I hope I met the requirements that the EXPERT category wants out of me...

VINCENT'S D.E.V. BLOG!

DEV---Aichelle.

Hello everyone! My due date for this DEV is tomorrow [30th] but I thought that I'd just post this now so I don't forget.
Here is the link to my DEV:

Hope it's good enough for you. Enjoy, thanks.

Robert's Developing Expert Voices Project

Hello everyone! Today is my due date so I'm posting my project. Now there are some weird symbols on my project but you can just ignore them and follow step by step and you will be fine. Also, the slide show does not fit on the blog so just open it up by clicking on slideshare and you will be able to see the whole show clearly. Hope you enjoy the project!

Jann's DEV Project

Hello everyone! I've finally finished my project. I hope it has no mistakes. XD

Question 1: The "Super" Worried Father

A worried father keeps walking around in circles, waiting for his son to call home. Because he was so worried he can do 38.2 revolutions every 2 minutes from the point where the phone is (humanly impossible). Assume he walks in a constant rate. His farthest distance from the phone is 3.4 meters. Determine circular distance when he was 2.4 meters away from the phone when it rang. Assume that he started at the phone.



Question 2: Mike's Pizza Party

Mike decided to have a party at his house. He ordered two 14" pizzas for his party. He wanted it to be divided into 17 equal slices since its his favorite number. His friends love pizza so much. There will be 20 people for his party. He doesn't know how big would these slices will be. Find the area of a slice and find out how many different ways can his guests could have a slice. After all the guests got their slice, Mike would allow seconds. (He doesn't care who gets what slice since they're all equal)



Question 3: Leo the Lion's Great Marathon

Leo decided to have a big race for his kingdom. They will be using a circular track, where the "Great Tree" is a point on the outer-most track. This will be the starting point. Leo was worried that he might lose to the other contestants. He consulted his friend Shane the Snake, his trustworthy adviser. Shane estimated that the lanes are 1.2 meters away from each other. There will be 3 contestants in the 4-lane track. The diameter of the whole track is 125 meters.

Few days before the race, Leo and Shane went to the track and did some test runs. They realized that the lanes have different obstacles on the way. Shane said that Leo can do:

2.6 revolutions every 5 minutes on the 1st lane
1.7 revolutions every 3 minutes on the 2nd lane
3.8 revolutions every 2 minutes on the 3rd lane
2.3 revolutions every 5 minutes on the 4th lane

Which lane will make sure that Leo will do his best run? How many different ways would the other contestants pick their lanes, assuming they don't know that the lanes have obstacles? What would be the formula for Leo's choice of lane?

Sol.
This is a diagram of the situation...
Now that we know the number of ways, we could find a formula for Leo's choice of lane, lane 3.
Question 4: Chemical X Problem

Chemical X contains a certain bacteria that allows it to grow exponentially. The chemists recorded that the chemical was 10.58mL after an hour. Since these chemists are lazy, they stopped gathering information after this first hour. If they had 10mL to start with, predict the how long it would take for the chemical to be 17mL.



I really gave a lot of time to do this project. For me, it's pretty hard to think of a question. I thought it would be a piece of cake. The hard part is, I don't know if this is really an "expert" level project in other's point of view. At least I followed the rubric with the best of my abilities.

I hope everything is A-OK. Great day everyone! =D

Sandy's DEV Project

So here it is. It's not exactly positioned the way it should be, but Slideshare kept doing that to me. So this is it, it's finished. This should due for now until I find something better to use. (:




MY REFLECTION:

I know this is actually kind of late but I forgot all about it since I've been caught up in other things. Well honestly, this project hasn't really benefited me in any way. I did my questions like any other questions that we did on tests, pretests, quizzes and in the exercises. In other words, they were Journey person questions. So it didn't really teach me anything I didn't know. If I was taking this course next year maybe then I would've tried to go for the Expert level questions. But I wasn't about to push myself this semester to do something like that. The only reason is because I had other projects to do that I put above this project. Don't get me wrong, it was a fun project. We were able to use our creativity and computer skills to make math questions into something more interesting and at the same time, teach people. I think I could have done better on this project if it was the only thing I had to worry about. I also find it hard to keep slides to a minimum amount of text. It's hard when you're trying to teach someone over the computer and at the same time keep the text small so they won't get bored and leave. In person, it's a lot easier. Another this is, I think I would've enjoyed this project being done by hand. I like those kind of projects more than computer ones. Just a little idea for maybe later on. I think we can express more creativity with things on paper rather than on the computer. Not everyone is as good at computers as others. So maybe there should have been a choice given? Honestly, I think I would've had more fun cutting and pasting things onto paper for this project, but that's me. Anyway... overall I think the project was a pretty good idea, it just kind of came at a bad time, but it's good!
