The Inner Solar System:

In this article, it tells us about things I didn’t even know about. Like different types of gases, sizes and the approximate time it takes for a planet to orbit the sun. It takes 365 days for Earth to orbit the sun and it takes Venus 224 days to orbit. I also learnt that terrestrial is a fancy word for ‘rocky’. The sun is a big ball of of hydrogen powered by nuclear reactions. It takes about 8 minutes to warm Earth, ‘WOAH’.

Nets - Isosceles

W.A.L.T: Making nets.

When I was making an equilateral triangle I had to know how to correctly use a compass and each side has to be equal. I made a square based pyramid -with  Isosceles triangles. I found this easy because I got the hang of using a compass and ruling off each side, but I also found this hard by constructing it together and making flaps. Next I would like to learn is how to construct a square.

Scale Drawings

I learned to use scale to enlarge my drawing. I used a scale of 1cm to represent 4cm. This means that my drawing was 4 times bigger. The task was confusing because this was my first time enlarging a picture. I need more practice to perfect my drawings on this topic. Next I would like to learn the reduction of a picture.
