[Maths] - "Shapes & Transformation Project"

Greetings, and welcome to my new blog post! Today's blog post is about a project that I've been working on the previous week in Maths class. Our project task requirement was to choose an animal and design a new logo for New Zealand's Auckland Zoo, and here is a presentation consisting of what I've come up with, and the lesson I took away through the process of that project, "Shapes & Transformation."

[Maths] - "World Trip Coordinate Project"

Greetings, and welcome to another blog post of mine! So here we have a presentation showing you my project that was to be completed for Mathematics, called "World Trip Coordinates." Within our presentation, we had to include four destinations that we'd like to go to, a screenshot of those four destinations marked on the world map that we created on Google My Maps. We then have to plot the coordinates in a correct and accurate position. Once that was done, we had to calculate the angles of direction from North, known as the "bearings." So once all of that was done, we had to describe the distances on our maps showing how far it is from one point or destination, to another. So this could be done by measuring the actual distance on my maps, but I've decided to calculate the distance using the Pythagorean Theorem, which was quite difficult at first. So click on the next slide to continue for more about what I've discussed here. Thank you very much for visiting my blog!

[Social Studies] - "Entrepreneur Quality Reflection"

Entrepreneur Quality Reflection:
Greetings everyone, as you may know already, my name is Vaifoa Lam Sam and I am a 15 year old student at Tamaki College. The first week back to school has been great, and what we've been learning and discussing more about this term is "Entrepreneur." So I've managed to write 3 paragraphs explaining the qualities that I hold if I were to be an entrepreneur, and also a definition of my own words of what the word Entrepreneur even defines. The Entrepreneur qualities that I currently hold is Creativity, Perseverance, and Reliability. Thank you for visiting my blog!

First of all, the reason as to why I hold the qualities of creativity is because I have a a good sense of thinking that would generate a bunch of original ideas on how I would do things in particular. Creativity within my art however shows when I’m thinking of what to put on the piece of paper that I will be using to draw or doodle on. Creativity in another way that shows clearly, is being able to think of possible ways that would lead up to making the perfect design idea that will go onto a presentation task that is done by either me individually or in a group.

Second of all, the reason as to why I hold the qualities of perseverance is because I find myself as a very hard worker, and I am always willing to learn and to complete work, and I do complete work. I’m always aiming to complete work at a set time or due in date without distraction. Everything that I do in my subject classes, whether it’s a presentation, writing assessment, and other activities or tasks, I would take my time and explain what I’ve written ‘thoroughly.’

Last of all, the reason as to why I hold the qualities of reliability, is because I am really trustworthy, and I take responsibility in whatever I do, and whatever I do come with the sense of doing those things well. Reliability when coming to school or attending sports trainings is at a high standard, because I have the eagerness to strive to succeed in anything that I do and it is a priority, basically. Often, I’d like to never be the person who always misses out on training sessions or education lessons. This is how entitled I am, towards what I participate in.

So as you have known now, I hold these three qualities of an entrepreneur. Just in case you may of have not known, the definition of an entrepreneur in my own words, is a person who is capable of having bright, innovational ideas who could change the world. Entrepreneurs are commonly known to also be called “risk takers.” They are risk takers because they are able to deal with how their money works through finance and other causes relating to money and the risks that they take that could cause an effect within their income. Thank you very much for your time!
