Math BLog post

1)  When should you start bombarding the App Store with purchases if you want to win?

March 1st around 4pm.

2)  What assumptions have you made in your model?

divide 341,492,345 by 34,237 and you will get around 9000 minutes which is the equivalent to about 150 hours and that can be converted to 6 days and 21 hours

3)  Interpret the parameters in your linear model.  What do the units of slope represent?  What does the the y-intercept represent?

units of the x-axis as time therefore hours of days and then make the y axis show the amount of downloads. Furthermore, the graph will represent the rate of download.

4)  According to your linear model, when did the app store sell its first app?  Calculate the answer mathematically then find the actual answer.  If those answers are different, what could explain the difference?

2 years ago at Sept. 27 about 4pm. 500x34237x24x60 is about 24bi+600milli.

Analysis Expressive Human Figure

The main goal of this expressive human figure project was to incorporate techniques learned from the past human figure project and to sculpt a human figure that expresses a emotion or a happening. I personally chose to express war, and what a human being can do to another human. In other words, that dark side of a human being. I wanted to make a human figure with a side of it with no limbs or arms and another side with a wing to represent its death and grievance. The figure would be lying down in a disfigured motion to also express sadness in the project. As I have learned so many lessons from my first human figure project, it felt like that this project's process was much more easier than the first one because I actually managed to finish this project in only two lessons without any problems and I was also able to easily put my plans to action. There were not many struggles that I encountered while finishing this project but one of them was that I had to try to find the best pose to express my thoughts fully. Such as when I was first making the project, I decided to stick the wing of the figure beneath the arm of the sculpture. But, I realized that this pose would limit me from expressing death with the wing. So I sort of put the wing of the figure right on top of it's arm for it to be more visible. There are many things that I learned from this project. I learned that you can easily express a feeling with a human figure by shaping the body in a certain way. Also that even the tiniest things can make a difference in the whole concept of the project, such as the placement of certain parts of the body or the texture of certain things. The most important thing that I learned from this project is that a sculpture is able to express more than just plain words. I learned this after I finished the project. I realized that war and sadness is not the only things that were expressed in this project, I also figured that there were some other emotions that were included in this project that I was unaware of such as tiredness and stress. I think that from me being so annoyed during the times while I was making the project, I unintentionally might have done somethings in the project that I didn't really plan on doing an example of this is when I made the hands of the sculpture look like as if the person in the sculpture was trying hard to push himself to his feet even if he knew that there was no hope left. In conclusion, I am generally pleased with my results in this project because I think that I was able to fully use the techniques that I learned in the past project.

Human Figure Analysis

The criteria for this project was to get to know how to sculpt a human figure with the right proportions and the right methods. Things such as a human body should be the length of 8 heads. Or that a person's arms should come down to their thighs, also that their legs should be the length of their upper body and head combined. I think that I managed to meet these criterias, because I managed to learn about sculpting the human body. I will be honest with you, this project was not one of my best projects because I had to waste so much time gluing things back together such as the legs. I think that the problem with the legs were that where I was attaching them were too dry for the newly made legs. Therefore, when the project was in the process of being kept inside a plastic bag, the legs kept cracking up because, the clay was not completely attached because of the difference in dryness. Moreover, one other thing that I think that I did wrong was that when I first started the project, I think that I made the shoulder blades of the sculpture too big and kind of made him look like a body builder. Of course I could fix that mistake later on the project when I was making the arms of the sculpture, but I picked up a few things from that mistake. One of which is that when you are making the upper body you should plan ahead for the project as a whole because it might facilitate you when you are basing your proportions on your upper body, as it contains the head. I think that this project was a really good way to learn the basics of building a human body our of clay and to learn about the basic proportions and features of the human body. There are a lot of things that I want to change about this project if I had the chance to. Firstly, I would make the legs of the sculpture a bit thinner because I think that the calf of the sculpture is too big compared to its thighs. Secondly, I would also try to define the muscles of the body more, because I was so busy gluing parts together to the body I did not have enough time to define the details of the human body such as the pectoral muscles and the spine. Lastly, I would try to choose another pose for the sculpture because I think that I was not able to fully incorporate the Michael Jordan pose to my project. As it was such a complex and an in-movement  pose I think that I was a little too ambitious to choose this pose for my first project before I have fully mastered he techniques and the proportions of the human body. I also think that the pose was one of the major things that might be keeping this project from looking as good as the other ones. Overall, I think that this project was one of the ones that was a good learning experience but not a good looker.

Process 3 human figure

I am now done with crafting the body as a whole. But just to add some creativity into this project, I decided to shape the body as the iconic figure of Michael Jordan. The figure will have his two legs spread like he is jumping in for a dunk and his hands reaching out for the rim. The only problem that I had with shaping this figure is that the legs kept on falling apart when I tried to move them.
