Boys and Girls Ultimate: State Championships
Teams must qualify.
The instrument my group decided to focus on was either wind or percussion. Percussion instruments consist of everything you can hit with sticks. In percussion instruments the sound foundation is a pulsing covering. These instruments are known as membranophones or beating part of dense substances that is called idiophones. The percussionist usually makes these resources to pulse by beating them. This is where percussion comes from, but numerous of percussion instruments are played shaking, rubbing, or any other method that can make the sound within the percussion instrument.
there are difficult behaviors in which the sound starting place tremble, a good
number of percussion instruments do not have exact pitch. The majority of
instruments that do have significant pitch are idiophones. The pitch of
instruments relies on the quantity of substance that is beating. In all-
purpose this means that the instruments should have a unique throbbing body for
every note. So I am either considering either chimes
or a guitar but still undecided. Didn’t want to choose something that would
have over whelmed me. still choosing between a guitar and chimes.
Throughout the year, I have taken part in completing several statistics benchmarks that helped further my knowledge on statistics, all while having fun doing so. One benchmark in particular that I enjoyed the most was the most recent benchmark I completed. The assignment was to create an informative study guide, which dealt with topics that were going to be presented in future math classes at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, the college I will be attending next year. This benchmark was truly helpful, and I can honestly say that I will take this study guide with me to college, to help remind me of how complete math problems that were mentioned in my created study guide.
I actually took my time with this benchmark, because I figured from the start of this assignment, that I might need this study guide in the future. I first researched the math classes that I will be taking part in next year at West Chester University. After figuring out the math class I would be taking, I wrote down the main topics that were going to be discussed throughout the course. I compiled a list of useful information needed in order to complete problems that were related to the topics that were going to be discussed in my future math classes. I provided several example problems per topic along with the solutions to the sample problems, as well as definitions to key vocabulary words and notes relating to the topics. I organized all my information into an informative, and easy-to-read packet for myself for the future.
One thing that was interesting and surprising to me while completing this project was that I realized that all of Science Leadership Academy’s core values were used during the completion of this assignment. I inquired information from outside sources in order to figure out what topics were going to be discussed in my future math class. I then researched how to properly approach and complete problems that were related to the math topics that were going to be discussed in my future math class. I collaborated with a math professor from West Chester University, and he confirmed the topics that were going to be taught to me next year. After my information was finalized, I compiled my information into a study guide, which is how I presented my information. Now here I am, writing a blog post reflecting on my experience completing this benchmark.
All in all, this was my favorite benchmark of the year. I learned a lot, and it’s one of those assignments that will stick with you in the future. I benefited greatly from this benchmark, and I highly recommend students do the same benchmark, to help them with their future math class in college. Like I said, I will absolutely take this packet with me to college, and I strongly believe I will reference this packet when completing future assignments in my college math classes.
Since I was a little kid, the one instrument that’s always captured my attention was the guitar. It was something that could be used for so many different types of genres for music. Hip hop, rock, classical. It captured every sound. So the beginning of this year our school finally got a real music. Who was cool, fun, amazing at some many different types of music and he was an awesome friend. Mr. Newman has taught me a lot about the guitar, some good, some awesome. But such an amazing and interesting kind of instrument.
Playing the guitar takes a little time to really grasp, because you can play the guitar in two types of methods, using tabs and/or chords. For personally chords are much more fun and easier to play but tabs always good to learn especially if you want help with fingering. First you would place your fingers on the chord or sting you want to play then depend on the volume of mood of the song give the strings a strum and if you playing tabs you may have to play that one string first and move to another string so you strum the one string first then move onto the next one using the beat of the song to guide your strumming speed and/or strumming pattern.
To change a note:
For chords you would simply move from the previous chords to the next one while continuing you strumming pattern. Same thing for tabs except in some cases you would be moving from one string to another or one tab to another.
A guitar has a strange shape but it’s very helpful for playing and for the player. But a fun way to describe its shape is to say it’s like an 8 on a stick.
Basically I want to be able to try and make a guitar that is as professional as possible which means I can’t take too long to make it. I know I’ll be able to get real guitar strings for it so that’ll help with the sound and I can try and make a guitar that represent my personality as well.
