What do I already know?
I already know that the concept of golf is to hit the ball with metal shafts and try and get it in the hole. There are obstacles in the course, like distance, hills, water, bunkers, rough... etc. I know that there are different clubs like drivers, putters, irons, wedges, hybrids... etc. I know that there are all of these tournaments that the pro golfers can play in, but the four most famous tournaments that you have to qualify to get into are the Masters, the British Open, the U.S Open, and the PGA Tournaments. I also know the game of golf has gotten much harder in the past years but the equipment has gotten a lot better.
What have I learned?
I have learned a lot of things about golf in the 10 periods. I learned that when the game started it got banned for 45 years! I know that they played with clubs entirely made out of wood, and the golf balls were made out of beech wood. Now there are golf simulators where you can hit the ball into the screen and it would go the same distance as a real ball would. Now I also know that one of the oldest courses (the Old Course) was built in 1574 and we still play at it to this day.
What do I want to know?
I want to know who the best golfer ever is (point wise.) I also want to know some strategies to play my best game. I'm also going to try and find out which is the most famous course is.
What action did I take?
I made a website and I researched a lot about golf.
How will I learn this information?
I will research about my topic or I might ask a expert
What questions do I still have?
I have one big question that I wondering a lot about. It is "what would golf be like in say 20-50 years." I'm thinking that the club heads will get so much bigger, if the golf committee doesn't stop it the club heads will just keep on getting bigger and bigger. Who knows maybe their might not be anymore real courses and everyone will just play on simulators.
I had a lot of fun creating my website and learning all about golf and how it has evolved. Some things that I learned is that almost all the materials were made out wood, like the balls and the clubs. One thing that was a little was some of the dates that I picked to show how it evolved weren't really a major turning point in golf history. I really liked this topic and I can't wait until the next project.
My experience with learning about how computers have changed over time was AWESOME! I thought it was awesome because I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. I learned that some computers were like 100 tons and that is a lot. I also liked to see how all the computers have changed over time. The first computers were huge and you could not do much with them and now computers are in our daily lives. All in all, I loved this project and learned a lot!
Can I find the elements in famous video games that make them popular, find a logical explanation for the pleasure of the elements, and plan a video game on paper that includes all of the elements? By: Regan
I learned that creating a roller coaster isn't that easy it is really hard and involves lots of science. I honestly thought that for this project I would just make a few hills and be done. My favorite part surprisingly wasn't it was having my friend watch me and saying this is gonna be the one I know it. I was the most fun because I was so close I would jump out of my seat every time I got close. The hardest part was staying motivated after I failed again and again and again and again well you get the point. I got really discouraged after like 18 tries but my friend made me keep on pushing through. Some advice for anyone else doing this project is not to bother with the games where you just draw a track to earn gems and/or coins because those games have no value and I didn't use them because of their lack of quality.
Aidan: Andrew and my second round passion time project was How Did Super Mario Bros. Evolve. It was a very interesting topic because Super Mario Bros. was the first game in the series and if they keep making more there would be no such thing as Nintendo, Wii, Wii U, or any other Nintendo game. I learned that there
This project was totally awesome. I now am an expert on inkjet printers and know nearly everything about the printer. My strategy for passion time and if my question is how something works, I would look up all the parts and a little bit how it works because that is kind of hard to find. Then study all of the parts and know every single piece. I loved my topic and I'm ready for another passion time. Also, if you have any questions on Inkjet printer come ask me.
This project was a very good and fun project! I had fun researching this project it is mostly about how swimmers and divers can increases there speed. I also got a lot of facts about what they do like shave there body you can learn a lot about that if you watch my video! I also got to email a diving couch and got to ask her a lot of questions. She gave me really great answers. I liked researching this because I am a swimmer and a diver! I really enjoyed reasurching and making videos about it if I had more time I would research my question I still have!
GO TO MY WEBSITE!!😆
Matthew: I liked this passion time a lot because I liked making a video and making the video the hard part was finding out how to work GoAnimate. The easy part was making the video because at that point Jeremy and me both knew how to work GoAnimate. I also liked working with Jeremy he was a great partner, the best part was are funny failures with GoAnimate. It was a great topic, and it was fun so it made it easy to finish, I liked GoAnimate it was a great source for are project there was some flaws though.
This topic was really fun because I got to learn about something I really love and that I have been doing for my whole life almost. I also liked it because you can keep learning and learning more and more because my website is just the basics of skiing and I can still think of a few more things I could do to it but I don't have enough time to put those last small details on my website but they wouldn't do that much to the format or the overall website.
I really liked this project because we could do a hands on project which made it very fun, and a bit dangerous! I really liked it because me and Stephen worked together very well and got everything done. I also liked taking apart the I phone and its battery. The battery was very surprising it was basically just a bunch of wrapped up medal with a toxic smell and chemicals. I really liked that people also showed a lot of interest because it we worked very hard and everything in side the iPhone and computer was a huge surprise. I also liked it because our collaboration was very good in a partner ship. Over all I loved this project it was a lot of fun and I would do something like again in passion time.
I really liked this project because I think it was fun that we got to bring in the materials that we did and that we were able to take apart an iPhone and even a Battery! It was cool that the battery ended up being just a bunch of pieces of metal paper with battery acid on it. It was funny how on the iPhone they used electrical tape to keep some things together. It was cool how different the computers circuit boards were so different then the iPhone's. I still have some questions like why they make the battery on the iPhone like that and how they fit all technology into the tiny circuit boards. The coolest thing is that there were absolutely nothing different.
