Week 4 – mapping

In today’s class, the exercise was to map out what I do daily. Though I don’t water my plant daily, it’s mostly a weekly/bi-weekly activity I do. This is a rough sketch & I had a many more ideas.

Before I started working on my flowchart, this is what I’ve typed out.

Watering my plant (How I water plant)

  • Prepare the mixture
    • Depending on what type of mixture I use I will either use my kelp supplement or the acid-feeding water sollution for my plant
    • Both have the same steps, 2 teaspoons and 1 bottle of water.
  • Bring the pot to the bathroom
  • Slowly pour the water mixture into the pot
    • I prefer to start from the outside towards the inside
  • Do not overflow the water and wait until most of the water seeps into the soil
  • I have a tray for the pot so when the water comes out through the drainage the tray will catch the water.
  • Dump out the water and water the pot again until the bottle is empty
  • Once all water has been flush out, bring it back into the original spot near the window.

Extras step if I feel like it would be to wipe the leaves

  • After watering the plant, I would get a microfabric cloth and wet it with warm water.
  • Then I will carefully wipe the leaves down from the stem towards the leaves.
  • Does the same process to the rest of the leaves top & bottom.

Another step I would do:

  • Bring it back to the original window spot
  • Spray around the plant with my water spray to increase the humidity

If I had more time, I may have map out most of the ideas I first typed out but a simple flowchart will be fine for now.

Week 3

Week 3 worked on a terrain where I added rocks, grass, post process, player controls, and unity recording.

The idea was to have a rock and a single tree from a friend of mine as a joke. I was like sure, I will implement that idea in and play around with it.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing around with the scenes & adding layers of things. It took me a good 8 hours or more making this project. I was watching Professor’s Alecz video and following it step by step. Most of the time I had to pause & make sure I did it correctly or he went just a little bit too fast. I probably could have spent lesser time to do this project because I had distractions at home. Thought those distractions where the motivations I needed to start the project & continue on. It’s easy to get lost in the moment when working on projects but it’s also the start we have to take that takes a while.

The problem I had with unity was my terrain kept clipping whenever I zoomed into the terrain but that was fixed by changing my layout to 2 by 3. Another problem was I couldn’t install the unity recorder but that was because I didn’t update my unity to the latest version. Lastly, I couldn’t figure out how to make the tree leaves flow with the wind unlike the grass on the ground.

In the end, I made a terrain I’m pretty happy with and I’m looking forward to scripting next week.

MTEC2120 – Week 1

This week’s reading was The Ignorant Schoolmaster written by Rahul Mukhopadhyay & Varadarajan Narayanan. Base on the title without reading the content yet, I believe this story would be related with boundaries between the possibility of professors and students. Base on the story, there was a debate about access to education because of social status. A quote that stood out to me was “Who has the right to think” (Ross, 1991, p.58) because during this time only privileged children get an education while those of a lower class do not have the opportunity to attend. As the story progress, they mention that it is possible for an ignorant person to teach another person what the former does not know & what is important is that the student understands the message given by the instructor. The teacher will give explanations to the students but for the teacher to truly know if the students received the knowledge, the students have to respond back to what they understood.  Though this reading was confusing for me, I get that the message is trying to give is that there’s no need for inequality in education and that teachers and students can have equal standing. We are learning together as a team.
