core value blog post

I think that I am a pretty good risk taker because of many reasons. Firstly, I do not hesitate to take risks or to try new things. Secondly, I actually am not to explore things that I do not know about therefore, there is nothing that stops me from exploring things. Lastly, I let my curiosity take control of myself.

I think that I need to be more responsible for many reasons. I really have a hard time doing my part, and I sometimes think that I really am doing nothing with my life as I am not fulfilling my responsibilities.

7. it took about 6 iterations to get to the exact answer.

You change the equation to 12(x+3x) in order to get 3and for other numbers, you can change the number of the fraction where the denominator is x. So for 7, it would be 7 over x with the same equation. So exactly you would only be changing the number of the numerator in the second fraction to the whatever number inside the square root you are trying to find.

k=12(x+kx)
k=(x+kx)2/4
k=(x2+2k+k2x2)/4
4k=x2+2k+k2x2
4x2k=x4+2x2k+k2
x4-2x2k+k2=0
(x2-k)2=0
(x2-k)2=0
x2-k=0
k=x2
k=x
Now when you input root K into the equation, it will be k=12(k+kk) and when you get rid of the root in the denominator, it will be 12(k+kkk), then when you simplify it, it will be, 12(k+k), which will be 12(2k)meaning k=k which shows that it has to be exact because they are equal values that are input.

Analysis

The main expectations or grading criterias on the creative coil project was to incorporate my own ideas and creativity to make a original piece of art using clay containing movement and creativity. Most importantly I was supposed to learn new techniques with working with clay, therefore this project could be seen as a introduction to Ceramics & Sculpture 1 itself, to get me ready for upcoming projects such as the ancient pot replica project. On this project our teacher Mrs. Ariani has helped me quite a bit with planning and making our plans for this project become a reality. Moreover she also let me make some adjustments to my primary measurements, this taught me how to make my measurements as correctly as possible. Hence, now I am pretty confident with my skills on calculating the correct measurements. 
Now based on my opinion, I think that I have met these criterias in a pretty complete and insightful way. Firstly, There is not a single inch in my project that does not demonstrate movement. I think that I managed to accomplish that by taking movement to one of my primary design goal since I started drawing this project on paper. Therefore, with a little help from Mrs. Ariani, I could easily accomplish this. Secondly, my project is somewhat original, as it is a pretty unique idea. The hysteria behind this is that this idea was the first thing that popped into my mind so there is no way to explain how I accomplished this. However, I think that Mrs. Ariani might not give me a full mark on this criteria because there is another project right outside our classroom that is of a snake. Lastly, I think that this project looks good overall. I know that by saying this I am being somewhat arrogant, but I am truly saying this with wholehearted honesty. There were many challenges in the process of making this project. One of the main ones was that I misinterpreted my drawing while making the base of the snake, I simply solved this by making another one. Another one was that while making the head of the snake, half of the head fell off because I didn't blend it strong enough, therefore I had to remake that part of the head and had to glue it back together as the piece has been completely broken. The major challenge that I had to deal with was that I had to make a major adjustment to the snake's height, because I realized that the snake looked very disproportionate with the height of 29 cm, so I had to add 6 more coils to the body to make the snake look better. Also, the last part of the project which was drawing in the scales of the snake was also one of the hardest and most time consuming task because I had to draw in every single scale with a needle point. I tried to get over this problem by using a scratcher to draw it, but the scales were hard to see. That's why I had to do it with a needle taking 2 full classes to finish. By this I learned that  sometimes the best way to do things while working with clay aren't always the easiest ways. I am pretty pleased with my project I like the way it looks and I am pleased with the way I incorporated many creative ideas on it. So with all honesty I truly wouldn't change a single thing on my project.

Procedure-3

The last steps in this project includes making the body and tail of the fish and making its tail. And maybe adding some texture to the snake's body. I am planning on doing the fish in a straight shape with a round body. And for its tail I will just add some more wider coils to the body of the fish then I will cut it in a "V" shape. Finally for the texture, I will get a needle point and I will draw in some snake scales.

Here is my finished product:

Procedure 2

I am currently done with the base and the bottom part of my snake and I am moving up to its neck. The neck will be about 8 cm wide and it will be slightly slanted. The making of the thickness of the coils will be the same as snake's body. I am going to join 2 coils to give it a more realistic look of a snake. Then after I am done with the neck I will have to do the head of it. I am planning of opening the coils little by little until I reach the width of 11 cm. And for the mouth I want to I am going to take Mrs. Ariani's suggestion and make 2 round half spheres on each side then to blend them separately to make it look like a mouth.
