My own interpretation of a DS 106 assignment.

Well I did the road sign reinterpretation, and I liked it so to create a reinvisioned project like this maybe take a matheatical idea or way of doing something and make it into  a story or an idea that will stick to the student’s minnd. Like using sohcahtoa. And so I thought they could use cyberchase as inspiration because they always learn a essential mathematics topic in the show. I’m still working on my example though.

Representations of us.

The grade level targeted is first grade, The point of this assignment is for them to create a icon or picture that relates/ represents them, aside from the picture they would have to pick 2 words that best describe them. With this assignment the students can get to know one another and see if they can relate to one another. At the same time it would allow myself being their teacher to get to know my students a little better.

I edited this picture using pixrl i united two pictures together and added a small text where 2 words describes who I am. The idea of this assignment is from the design assignments.

Troll Quotes – Science Classroom #1

Assigment: Find an image of a well known figure, add to it a famous quote by someone related in some way to the figure in the image and then attribute the quote to a third, related figure. From the official site: How It Works 1) Get a picture of someone people idolize. Obi Wan Kenobi, Barack Obama, Captain Kirk — any beloved public figure will do. 2) Slap on a famous quotation from a similar character from a different book or movie. Pick something close enough that a non-fan might legitimately confuse them.

I took a picture of a famous scientist (Albert Einstein) and took a different quote from Isaac Newton and the I named it by another famous scientist Marie Curie. Obviously the picture is of a male and the name is a female name. This can be used in a science classroom where students can look up famous scientist and see what they did and instead of learning about just one particular scienctist they can learn about three in one assigment.

Albert Einstein–  Einstein completed his General Theory of Relativity and in 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics

Isaac Newton–  Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motions of objects on Earth and of celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural laws, by demonstrating the consistency between Kepler’s laws of planetary motion and his theory of gravitation, thus removing the last doubts about heliocentrism and advancing the Scientific Revolution.

Marie Curie- Curie discovered the mysterious element radium. It opened the door to deep changes in the way scientists think about matter and energy. She also led the way to a new era for medical knowledge and the treatment of diseases.

A limited world.

The grade level targeted is sixth grade, their assignment is to think about living in a world with no computers or advanced technology where Xbox, Wii, YouTube, facebook, twitter and Google didn’t exist. They would have to think about a “limited world” where they would explain if they were home what would they be doing and how they would spend their extra time. The point of this assignment would be to help the students see how technology affects us.

I used pixrl to edit this picture where i united three different pictures in one, and added a text to describe the union of all three pictures. I took the concept from Ds106.


Grade Level~ 2nd grade

Subject ~ Integrating Mathematics/English

Assignment ~ Pick an image of yourself or anything you like. With that image, you are now going to write a few descriptive words explaining the image, BUT you will be using NUMBERS instead of LETTERS. In each word, you will insert a dash () in between every number. Make sure you use proper punctuation marks, if necessary.

Letters to Numbers –> A=1, B=2, C=3, M=13, N=14, O=15, X=24, Y=25, Z=26.

Example ~ 









I uploaded the image above in pixlr and then used the text feature to add the numbers.

Assignment originated from here.


Grade Level ~ 1st grade

Subject ~ Mathematics

Assignment ~ Choose an image that relates to your life. On that image, you will now edit it and put your favorite number on it. Lastly, please explain what those numbers represent.

The reason for this assignment is for students to learn how important numbers are in every day life.

Example ~ This is an image of a blackboard. The numbers represent my birthday. I was born in the 9th month of the year on the 27th day. LIBRAS RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I uploaded the image above in pixlr and then used the text feature to add the numbers.

This assignment came from this idea.

What if? Change History in a Moment

What if George Bush didn’t win that election? This is the type of thinkingt that I want my students to have. I feel its great to have them think this way. In my opinion I think he was one of the worst president in the history of the United States. So what if? Would be in a recession now? Would 9 11 not happen? Would online gambling be more popular? There is a lot to think about.

For this image I put it through pixlr and added text to it. The color of the text I was having a hard time with because of the color.
