Reflection by Ria Sardesai - March 4th (Friday)

On Friday, we did so much!! We learned about T.V.’s, and how they work. We also learned how different T.V.’s do different procedures to get the same effect. Like a LCD TV uses a back-light to produce a picture, whereas a Plasma TV uses ionized gases to produce a picture. Also we learned a bit about analogies, and how they are similar to equivalent ratios. We also discussed how our short holiday went. Most people had great holidays, including me. We discussed how movies are associated with our unit: Technology. So we watched a movie, but not just any movie, a 3-D movie! We integrated fun with work, and got an awesome result. In the end, I realized that we use all sorts of things, but we never think about how they work.

We also reviewed what we learned about phones. I found it fascinating how the antenna can search about 10 miles away from where it is, just to find a base station! It is amazing how much technology we use in our life without really realizing it. It was also interesting to find out about analogies, and how they apply to our everyday life. Well, this about wraps it up, so see you fifth graders on Monday!
