Transcript: Circles In The Real World By: Gracen Tarantik and Emma Porzio Construction Example #1 ~construction is one of the major ways that circles are used in real life ~circle designs are used in multiple buildings and structures all around the world ~architects use the formulas for circumference (2pi*r) and area (pi*r^2) of a circle to map out their ideas on blueprints ~circles are also constructed in most of our homes ~archways in some older homes are constructed from semi circles which are half a circle ~the builders have to know the formulas for the semicircles area (pi*r^2/2) and the lengths of the minor and major arcs (m/360=L/2pi*r) included Video Games Example #2 ~Video Game Creators often use geometrical concepts like circles ~they use circles to set boundaries for the characters to navigate ~use circles concepts to convert ideas from 2 dimensional to 3 dimensional ~The Tangent Theorem (If a line is tangent to a circle, then the line is perpendicular to a radius of the circle drawn to the point of tangency) can be applied through creating video game models of a character ~patterns in video games are based off of geometric shapes such as circles ~Programmers of video games start with basic outlines of their object and then start adding in shapes like circles to give a 3D look Astronomy Example #3 ~When measuring the Earth orbit around the sun, they used geometric concepts such as circumference ~An Hour Circle in astronomy is any great circle that determines the location of any celestial object ~The Hour Circle passes through the object at one point ~The Hour Circle is perpendicular to the celestial equator ~The Hour Circle relates to the concept of arcs because in order to find the distance of the object, you must use the formula (m/360=l/2pi*r) Geography Example #4 ~circles can be used in geography for finding a specific area on the globe ~a great circle is known to geographers as any circle drawn on a sphere with a center that includes the center of the globe ~a great circle divides the globe into two halves (both semi circles) the western and the eastern hemisphere ~Great Circles follow the circumference (2pi*r) of the world and are 40,000 kilometers along the meridians ~Great circles represent the shortest distance between two points on a surface ~Great circles are very important in navigation and have been for hundreds of years and were discovered by ancient mathematicians Transportation Example #5 ~circles have been used in transportation ever sense wheels were created ~tires, plane wheels, train wheels, and even carriage wheels were all made with the math behind circles ~the creators had to use circumference (pi*2r) and area (pi*r^2) to figure out the exact dimensions ~circles are also used in certain road designs like roundabouts where the circle formulas are also used to calculate how long it is ~circles were apart of one of the most important inventions ever created because without them we wouldn't be able to travel easily like we can now Animation Example #6 ~In order to become an Animator, it is crucial that you have taken the following math courses: College Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Calculus I and II, Linear Algebra ~Being an expert in geometry allows the animator to find unknowns from a simple set of equations ~They work out aspects of geometric figures, such as circles, when you are dealing with objects that move and change ~When dealing with frames, the size of must be consistent, so using the formula for circumference (pi*2r) of a round object would be crucial in keeping the animations balanced ~As said above, animators also use different equations and theorems to help solve issues with unknown answers

Transcript: The Man With A Twisted Lip May 2018 by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle by Kaleah Peet, Katie Watley, Kylie Tippets and Alexis Kelly Watson and Sherlock are plunged into the story, "The Man With A Twisted Lip", when a friend of Watson's wife, Kate Whitney, contacts him in fear her husband is missing in an opium den. Watson finds Isa Whitney shortly thereafter and sends him back to Kate but to John's surprise he finds Sherlock in the opium den as well. Sherlock informs John he is not there to partake in the opium but to solve a case; this case was brought to Holmes attention when Mrs. St. Clair believed there was more to her husband's disappearance than the police had discovered and contacted him. The day of Mr. St. Clair's disappearance in London, Mrs. St. Clair also had traveled to town where she believed she saw her husband in the window of a building (later revealed to be the opium den) but when she eventually contacted the police the only person present in the den was a beggar named Hugh Boone. After much investigation and deduction by Holmes and Watson it is revealed that Hugh Boone was Neville St. Clair's alias, which he took up after he realized that life as a beggar was more profitable than that of a journalist.

Throughout The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock is very thoroughly characterized as both brilliant and slightly insensitive towards others' emotions. His work as a detective who uses deduction is well known and brings him clients quite frequently. More about Sherlock Holmes... Sherlock During "The Man With A Twisted Lip", as well as the other installments of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Watson is Sherlock's partner. Watson's character plays a big role in humanizing the stories adding sympathy and the rationality of a normal mind. More about John Watson... Watson Illustrations Insert your own text here. Talk about something related to your third topic or just put some placeholder text here. This particular image from the story depicts the moment when Mrs. St. Clair was stopped by a "lascar scoundrel" (or a untrustworthy sailor). Illustrations An illustration of St. Clair disguised as the beggar, Hugh Boone. Illustrations cont. A drawing of Neville St. Clair lacking a disguise. Illustrations cont. This drawing is of the scene where Hugh Boone's shocking identity is revealed. Illustrations cont. There are quite a few adaptations of many of the Sherlock mysteries, including this particular one. The Man with the Twisted Lip is seen as its own "episode" as well as a small part in others. Adaptations Adaptations Insert your own text here.

Talk about something related to your fourth topic or just put some placeholder text here. This adaptation follows the story exactly. It gives the description, How did a respectable businessman come to disappear from a sordid East End opium den? What part does a deformed beggar play in it? Only Holmes can find the answer. BBC Sherlock Holmes BBC Sherlock Holmes (1964) Sherlock 2014 Sherlock (2014) Katie 4.5/5 - This mystery was very interesting from start to finishing containing everything I believed a mystery should have. My only critique was in the shift from the Isa Whitney plot line to the St. Clair plot line. Kylie 5/5 - I liked this story especially because of the plot twist at the end, when Neville was revealed to be Hugh and vice versa. Alexis 3.5/5 - I enjoyed the story, but I thought it was piecey. I feel like they story should've been focused on one single person, not switching up the characters. Kaleah 4/5 - I agree with Katie, I really enjoyed the entire story, and I believed that it followed the commandments to a tee. The only thing I didn't like/ understand is why the plot line shifted.

Transcript: Literature Circles Using Literature Circles is one way to differentiate effective instruction by taking into account sociocultural and developmental factors that students bring to school. Effective Strategies Small group work Individual choices Thematic design for authentic learning Meaningful activities Graphic organizers Accommodations Watch Video of a fourth grade Literature Circle References: Candler, L, Teaching Resources, Venn diagram, retrieved 2012 from: Cisneros, Sandra (1991) House on Mango Street, Vintage Publishing, New York, NY Cox C. & Boyd-Batstone P.

Literature Circles (2006, 2012) ABCteach: The educator’s online resource, retrieved from: Lesson Plans, retrieved 2012 from: Type of illustrations from the book: by Connie McDonnell Types of illustrations for sociocultural environment: High Society - Type of Entertainment Supporting Literacy Through Comprehensible Input and Scaffolding Comprehensible Input: Key to second language acquisition by tapping into student's background knowledge from home-school connections and this is done naturally in student-centered instruction Conversations among students are encouraged and valued Reader-response theory helps learning from literature in both a literal and figurative sense. Response is individual and not tied into one agreed-upon meaning of text. Silence while thinking about a text is understood. Student expression is the beginning of exchanges between teacher and students, sudents and students, and student and text.(Cox ,2009) Scaffolding: Graphic organizers can help the English language learner develop and interpret information easier to help identify specific information and to help with comprehensible input Working with peers helps to create a learning environment through conversation and shared ideas Using tools, such as, dictionaries, computer programs, pictures that relate to a topic, etc - these tools help to bridge the gap of the language barrier Picture of a luxury yacht. Lesson Plan/Literature Circles Fifth Grade Lesson Plan covers a six-week time frame in which students will divide into three groups of four students. These groups will listen on tape and read House on Mango Street over the period of six weeks. There is a time-line given to each group along with a rubric for specified jobs listed per group for every school day of the week. (SEE Hand-outs) At the end of the sixth week all three groups will present their findings from their research and report a summary with illustrations. There will be a discussion on Contrast/Compare using a Venn diagram for differences in sociocultural environments from information students researched for different cultures and social settings making connections to the book Effective Accommodations/Modifications Accommodations: A taped recording of the story in the student's first language Vocabulary words with definitions and pictures in student's first language Dictionary available in student's first language Given instruction using their language and repeating instruction in English Having available a list of common terms that will assist student in every-day activities Modifications: Specific jobs, such as, drawing illustrations and having help with interpretation of drawings Not as many vocabulary words to look up, but have a list of all vocabulary words given to student in both languages with their definitions and pictures that may help to make connection to words easier Illustration of a lower class sociocultural environment: A picture of the house on Mango Street.
