Maths- Algebra


 a. How many sticks were needed to build the 5 fish patterns? 30
b. How many sticks would you need to build 20 fish patterns? (See if you can work out how many without making the pattern) 122

c. Explain how you worked this out. 120 + 2=122
d. In a spreadsheet create a table that shows how many sticks are needed for up to 20 fish.
e. From this table create a graph to show your findings

Teletubbies is a British children's television.  The Teletubbies names are Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po. There are only 4 Teletubbies, there colors are Yellow,Purple,Green and Red. Teletubbies are my best cartoon when I was little but I still like them. I like how they talk even though I don’t know what they say.

Guitar Explanation

 If You play a guitar when it will vibrate from the strings to the nearest object around it and back. Then it would go to your eardrum and go forward and backward. Also when you make a noise it will make sound waves in the air which you can't really see. If you play a low chord it will be a low pith but if you play a high pitch. So if you play a guitar it could ply high and low pitch which head to your ear molecules.

Sound Explanation

If we had no sound in the world then we wouldn’t be able to listen to amazing music that people have made. I wouldn't be able to live if there was no music because my life would be less FUN. But how does sound work ?

Sound can be made by the vibrating of the object.Sound vibrates the air molecules which vibrates your ear drum that converts to electrical signals. The sound goes through your ears hits straight to your brain. Sound can be made by the vibrating of the object. For example as you hit the drum with drumsticks the sound of that object will reflex the skin of the drums which vibrates up and down.

Sound is also different because they have different beats to each other and they also sound different. Some sound have high and low pitch sound and if the high pitch is high then it vibrates fast but if it is low it take it times.

How to make a Guitar and a Fault

Rubber bands
Cardboard box

Step 1: You have to cut a hole in the middle of a square box.

Step 2: Then you put about 5-6 holes on to each side so it looks like thisScreenshot from 2014-06-03 14:44:00.png
Step 3:Then paint the body of the guitar I desired.This is easiest to do before you’ve strung it, as paint will change the sound and elasticity of the rubber bands.

Step 4:Place the knotted dowel into the body of the guitar and feed the rubber bands up through the string holes. The dowel will hold the rubber bands securely in place.

Step 5:Stretch each string across the central guitar hole and into the corresponding string hole on the other side.

Step 6:Place another dowel inside the body of the guitar and tie the loose string ends to it. Do this one string at a time for maximum accessibility. Be sure to make each string slightly looser than you would ideally like, as you will be tightening them later. If desired, make each string a different length to achieve different notes.

Step 7:Glue the last two dowels to the front of either side of the central guitar hole beneath the strings. Place the first dowel underneath the middle of the strings, slide it to one end, and glue it in place to lift that end of the strings; repeat on the other side. When you’re done, the strings will not only be lifted off the face of the guitar, but also have a tighter sound.

Step 8:Find a long piece of material that will readily attach to the body of the guitar.For example, this may be a piece of wood, length of PVC pipe, or cardboard tube, depending on how sturdy you’d like the end result to be.
  • To make cardboard tubing more solid, use several tubes. Slice all but one of them down the middle lengthwise, insert them inside one another, and glue them together.
  • If using PVC pipe, try to find some with a threaded end. This will make it easier to attach to the body of the guitar (see Step 4).

Step 9: Paint the neck if desired. Note that if the neck is a different material than the body, the painted result might not match (even if you use the same paint).

Step 10:Cut a neck hole in the body of the guitar if necessary.

Step 11:Attach the neck to the body of the guitar. The simplest way to do this is with a strong glue. If using PVC pipe, first screw a PVC ring onto the threaded end, then stick the threaded end through the hole you cut in Step 3, and then tightly screw another ring (or cap) onto the pipe, trapping the top wall of the guitar body between the two rings. Note that this will only work if the body of the guitar is a sturdy material and the hole is very snug.

Step 12: Now you're done, go give your new guitar some strumming!

Step 1:You will Need to flatten The ends of the straws with the pliers.

Step 2: After you have done that you will need to cut the flatten bits like it shows in the picture.

Step 3:If you wanna Plays songs you could Cut some more holes in the straw. And Start Playing it .
