Recently I have been working on an Epic Movie with my teammates and I have found that although the end product (in my opinion) was great, I believe that there are some things that we could have improved on to help the making of the project. So here I have made a Guide containing three rules to live by on what NOT to do with your team.
Number 1: Do not miss class/work time without talking to your teammates about it or at least sending an email.
This, I have found can be very hard to do. Especially because during certain times you’re not automatically thinking about telling your teammates that you won’t be at school. For example; when you’re sick the first thing that you think to do isn't usually to send an email/text to all of your teammates explaining why you won't be at work time that day. The first thing you do is usually to put on some fuzzy socks and grab as much tissue as you can. But here is my advice; when you're grabbing all that tissue, you might as well grab your laptop too so you can email your teammates.
Number 2: Never not know what you're supposed to be doing during work time.
This one is super critical because if you don't know what you're doing in class, chances are you don't know what the end product is nor the due date. If you don't know what the due date is then you are getting an F for not knowing what you are doing. So when it comes to your projects, knowledge is definitely the key to success.
Number 3: Do not walk away during work time assuming that you're done with your work.
This is something I have seen constantly and I can honestly say it is the most annoying of them all. If you are working with someone and you get up and leave that person has to pick up where you left off and coming from the person who has been the person who was left at the table, it's extremely annoying. Even if you think you're done. Always check and see if there is more work to be done. Taking water/bathroom breaks is one thing but when you get up for long periods of time to go talk to friends or go on your phone while there is work to be done, it's pretty disrespectful to the people working.
When it comes to working with your teammates, everyone is different. Some are more lenient on some things while others have pet peeves about others. It’s always good to stay in communication about those things when you’re working together, but if you're always following at least these three rules, then your group should succeed enough so that everyone gets an A on the project.
Here is the data I have been filling out about the different bodies of water I plan to test and have tested. Here I also have the sources that I used. Keep in mind I am not fully done with my experiment.
I have been working on my experiment for some time now and so far I have come up with a few hypotheses. So I tested the water down in Bodega bay and saw that it is possible for an orca to live down there but what i have also found is that there have been sightings of orcas. But in the sightings the orcas only went down there to hunt a whale and her calf.
I see a pattern of orca sightings not really being the same as what there are supposed to be like in a pod(based on my research). I believe that my data is very precise but I also believe that I could have done more research about orcas and how many are in a pod.
For this assignment I will be talking about the two standards that I chose and how they both tie into my entire experiment.
My first is the Interdependence of Organisms. This basically means that any organism depends on any living thing and also depend on their environment to stay healthy for them. Sometimes organisms are extremely dependent on other organisms so much that in order to live they need that living thing. Other organisms just consume similar food with another organism which would cause them to fight over the food. I believe that this relates to my topic because animals are used to fighting for their food, but when you keep an animal in captivity without any other animal of the same or a different species, you are keeping it in an environment which is harmful to their very existence.
My second standard is Population size. This is really just about how when they population grows, the resources have to grow too or introduce new predators otherwise the population dies without equal amounts of food for all of the animals. The reason I feel that this strongly represent my blog is because animals have instincts to find food. When they realize that the only way they get food is to fight for it, they become savages.
