  1. 1. 11th Octʼ 2010 Completing My Keychain I think that it really helped that I chose Plastic as my material because the color of my key chain is pretty and bright. My design also happens to be pretty innovative creating a good color-combination for it. I think that some of my strengths were while filing the edges and polishing my keychain. I also think that it really made a difference in the quality that I achieved because of the materials that I chose. At first, it was difficult to file off the edges of my puzzle piece, but once I switched to a smaller file, it was much easier for me to file off the edges. By the end of thirty minutes, I has perfectly rounded edges. One new thing that I learnt about in class was the buffing machine. It was amazing how it smoothed the plastic and polished the puzzle piece. I really had a hard time rounding the corners of my puzzle piece. I constantly kept walking up to the teacher and asked him if it was enough. I really had a hard time rounding all the corners of the puzzle piece. I also think that I could have filed my project better to achieve finer results. Now, that I look at my project, my eyes immediately go towards the imperfections and the filing errors I made. While filing, I over did some of the sides making n extra-thin and frail. It probably would have had a better appearance and feel If I had really focused. I think that I was very distracted. I kept watching my friends do their work and watch how they created their designs. I also think that I could have concentrated better if I was focused leading into a much better and sturdy final outcome. The leaner profile was definitely risk taker because I was learning about new kinds of tools and learning how to use new materials such as plastic and aluminum. Approaches to learning because I learnt about new things and refreshed my memory about things that I learnt last year.

  2. 2. CUTTING OUT MY MONKEY October 20th 2010 One of my strengths today, was that I used my time productively. I finished measuring and marking out my work and also managed to figure out how to use a coping saw in about ten minutes. I followed my flow chart and realized the mistakes I made while measuring and marking out and remarked them. I think that I was good at cutting my wood because i landed up the perfect shape for my toy. I think that I did not maintain my blade that well because I broke a coping saw. And I think that there are many coping saws to be broken in the future. I think that didn't do such a good job at measuring and marking out my project because it was messy and very hard to figure out. I think that next time I should try and be more careful at using the coping saws. I think that I could have done a better job my concentrating at measuring and marking out my piece better so that I could have achieved a more precise and fine I think that my learner profile was similar to the learner profile of the month that is risk taker. I learnt about many different kinds of saws, their operation and how to use them. I also am using different kinds of materials to make different parts of a project that II have never made before. I think that the Area Of Interaction was Approaches to learning because I was learning how to use different kinds of saws to make different curves in my piece of wood.
