Algebra is FUN

Math is my favorite subject since I was a little kid. Math is different from other subjects. Math allow to uses critical thinking and builds problem-solving skills. Learning to look at a problem—whether a math problem or a life problem—and come up with a plan is an important skill to practice. In this round math is a bit different. We have new facilitator that have different teaching style and the lesson also different from last term. Algebra!! For me, Algebra is fun and challenging. We use Khan Academy to see our progress and to practice.

Let see can you solve this equation ; )

Answer: if a = 8 which mean 9 – b = 9 – 8, so the answer must be 1.

HICC 2019

Who has compares Cambodia to another country? I have because I want my country to be a better country. Now a day, Cambodia is developing with factories, building, technology, education, economy and etc. Can you imagine how much does it grow from Khmer Rouge until nowadays? From non-educated to educated society from darkness to brightness. It is almost impossible to imagine. If you need to change something in your country you need to change yourself first. From my 2018-2019 I believed that I have the ability to impact and also to change Cambodia.

I have done so many projects this year. At the beginning of the year, one of my explorations was Traveling Theater, which is to create the Moblie Theater for the community. Mobile Theater is the same as the traveling theater that can travel around Cambodia to perform and also to impact the people in the community about the gamble, education, chemical usage, and etc. They’re still people gamble, don’t go to school and use chemicals in the food we hope that after they see our show they will change their mind. If Cambodia is covering by people with a good mindset as the blanket I can’t imagine that how great this country would be, there will be no more fighting, argument, discrimination, and people got depression. I want to see people respect each other, helping each other, love each other and protect the amazing country that we live now a day. I strongly believe that we will make that imaginary become reality by just starting from all of us, we are the change agent of Cambodia.

One April I have a project called Human Of Cambodia (HOC). Human of Cambodia means to Interview and capture pictures of Cambodian and make the document or nonfiction story about humans that live in Cambodia. HOC also impact a lot of things it can make people thinking with a different perspective change their mindsets and sharing though through looks at the picture and reading the caption of each person. Since I joined this project I feel more comfortable in writing, interviewing and talking picture. Audiences can get inspired by seeing the pictures and the quotes. This project can help us building those kinds of skills and I believe this can be a part of changing Cambodia. As a change agent for Cambodia, I always dream of my country become a role model for other countries. But, if I just dream without taking action that makes no sense. That why I am here. This is the link to Human Of Cambodia’s blog.

One of the biggest projects that I have done this year is Technovation. Technovation is a program for girls from over the world to learn and apply the skill need to solve real-world problems by making an application. We were working with our mentor to get the app and the business plan was done in three months. The problem that we are trying solve is about the lost popularity of Khmer Poem. We have found out that most of the students are having a hard time writing Khmer Poem. Khmer Poem is hard because it requires rhymes words and it has its own structure of writing. We believe that our app can help to bring back the popularity of the poem. We also get to the finalist, and we presented our pitch at silicon valley.

Get Creative With PhotoShop

For this last round of the year, is different from other rounds in this year for multimedia. We were given the three weeks project, we got to chose what we wanna learn that related to multimedia.

I chose to work on one of the Adobe program called Adobe Photoshop. Adobe Photoshop (Ps) is known as a raster graphics editor, digital art and photo editor, etc… I already know some of the basics and its tools, and I want to learn more about it. I love editing normal pictures to be the better and cool picture.

I learn Photoshop by watching the video on youtube. However, I sometimes get bored of watching a random tutorial on youtube, I go and search randomly on Pinterest. It was pretty much challenging and stressful for me to learn it by myself. It so hard to find the pictures that look similar to the picture on the tutorial. Most of the pictures that I use to edit are mostly from online because I don’t have time to take the picture and edit.

I enjoy learning this Adobe program. It helps me to go beyond my limit and always try new style of editing pictures. I am proud of myself what my edit turn out and look good.

Human Of Cambodia

For this round, I have Human of Cambodia exploration. Human of Cambodia is a really great opportunity for me to learn some new skill and to understand more about my country. For me, human of Cambodia means to Interview and capture pictures of Cambodian and make the document or nonfiction story about humans that live in Cambodia. I learned a lot of new skill such as how to get people to talk to us, photography, writing captions, and building self-confidence.

Taking pictures is one of my favorite thing to do, so this is a great way for me to improve this skill. Before, I was really scared to talk to unknown people, and one of my gold for this exploration is to learn how to talk with people I never made before. I try really hard to communicate with the stranger and be friendly with them. One of the thing that I just learned from my teacher is trying to be simple when we try to get the story from the people. Just go to them and ask the friendly question like how are you and all of the thing that you need to do next are asking the following question. After we have the pictures and the story we need to write the caption that feeds with the story and the picture. It was hard for me to write a powerful caption I learn from my teacher and practice it so many time. Practice being better. This exploration helps me to build myself confident and more confident with interviewing and ask people to take their picture.

The final product of this exploration is the picture and caption and performance. We show the picture with the caption and the performance of the two stories that we have selected.

Story And Caption

My first child is a babysitter at Phnom Penh which is far from where I live. My second child is a motorbike washer. My third child is illiterate. He failed his study and lives without education. It gives me a very hard time. I became sick and was diagnosed with scoliosis. I vomited for 3 months long. My first child rarely visits me and I miss her so bad. I think I would’ve died by now.
Luckily, a Christian group came here and helped me go to the hospital and receive the medicine. Because of them I feel better and am glad that I’m alive.

My husband and I work together to get income for our family. He does fishing and I take those fish to sell. We do what we can do.

Happy World Poetry Day

Happy World Poetry Day. Read the first stanza of the poem and try to combine the bold words together and you will find out something.

You’re the only limit is your soul.

DOn’t forget to be awesome.

Your dream wouldn’t complete without you

Magical only work when you try hard

limit yourself to produce the brightest stars

The dream is as magical as you allow it to be

Bring your dream to real life

You can’t stop the problem, but you can solve using your soul

Don’t Forget to use your secret weapons

to the well-organized mind

be yourself you aren’t weird you are limited edition

Let yourself decide the way for tomorrow

Bad day today give you experience for tomorrow

Create a light in your heart

You will Better, be strong

Tomorrow will be a good day enjoy your day

I hope this will give you hope

Everyone is unique in their own way

I think this is a great way to celebrate the world poetry day.

Percentage In Daily Life

For this term in math class, we were focusing on percentage. For me, I have learned percentage before so it is kind of easy for me to just learn it in English. I miss a lot of class time and I need to catch up in my free time.

Learning percentage it not simple it really fancy. Before you get into the percentage you should know about the fraction and decimal first. Because of learning about the percentage require all of that knowledge.

The percentage also an important subject to learn and use it in our daily life. Ex: comparing thing and discount product.

As you can see in the figure above the percent come from the fraction and it turns to decimal and finally its turn to the percentage.

New language _Print_

Have you ever try to learn a new language. Learning a new language is really hard at first, but when you getting deeper and deeper it will be much easier and easier. For this round in Multimedia class, we still focusing on Python. We did some project in codeclubprojects.org. Learning python is like learning a new language. I can’t imagine the first of me learned python. It really hard and I don’t even know anything. It the first time for me learning Python or code language. Now, I feel more comfortable with python since learning it for so long. This round we have learned about Python function, Python list, and Python dictionary.

Even though, It a first time for me to learn python I still can handle it. I always struggle while trying to complete the mission. I ask my teacher and my friends for helping me with the exercise.  There’s a project name  Turtle race that I have done. The most difficult is making the dash. What I did is try to find out where is the line come and I try so many different codes to test the code if it right. Reading the instruction is really important for us to understand more about the code.

Forces

For this round, we were starting to focusing on Physical Science. Learning physical science is fun and kind of hard too. We focus on different things about Physical science such as Motion and Forces. There’s a lot of trip going on so I miss a lot of stem class.

Forces:

Earth has two forces: Gravity is the force that pulls the object down. The other force is an upward force that may be provided by the ground or other surfaces.

In the picture  above the gravity pulls down with a force of 20 newtons and the table pushes up with a force of 20 newtons. The force of pushing and pulling is with the same newtons so the book just stays still because it balances.

In the  picture above the man with the blue shirt kicks the ball to the left with75 newtons and the man with the yellow shirt kicks the ball with 125 newtons to the right so the ball will go to the right. Because of the force of kicking the ball to the right have greater newtons than the force of kicking the ball to the left.

What the different between Khmer grammar and English grammar?

For this round in Khmer class, we are focusing on Khmer grammar. Khmer grammar is similar to English grammar. For me, I and my partner are reaching on Adverb.
