Tony’s reflection

For my lesson, I taught my buddy  the basics of a command in Minecraft although it did end up with building a house. Before we built a house, I taught him how to get a command block, how to change the weather, day, how to fill a space with a command and how to clone things. I also taught him the types of command blocks, how to make a Red stone clock, what you can do with it and how to change the controls of your character.

I think he learnt some of the things he wanted to learn like how to change the weather, day and how to change the controls because I think some of the things I told him were a bit too hard to understand for him. While we were making the house, he was building it slowly because he was using one hand so I taught him how to play Minecraft with two hands.

I think my lesson went pretty well probably because it was Minecraft but he seemed genuinely interested in what I was doing. After my mini lesson, I let him do anything he wanted to do which was building the house. I would make my lesson a bit easier to understand so my buddy would remember what I taught him and he would use the commands when he does play Minecraft again.

I think one of the learning powers I used was creativity because in my plan, I didn’t set down what commands I would use so i the lesson, I thought of the commands I could teach him that I think he would like to use. I also think one of the learning powers I used was collaboration because we were working together when we were making the house as he would tell my what to make the house out of, how big it is and what kind of house it would be as I would be making the house instead of him making it by himself or making it myself.


Squared Numbers Reflection -Tony


I noticed that most numbers needed 3 or 4 squared numbers an some that needed 1 or 2 squared numbers. The ones that needed 1 numbers were perfect squared numbers such as 1,9,16,4,25,36,49,64,81 and 100. I think that you can still make numbers under 5 numbers over 120 because you would still have the squared numbers that are over 120 like 121 and 144. Technically there are an infinite amount of squared numbers.

I will test this rule with high numbers like:

134= 10^2 + 5^2 + 3^2

144= 12^2

169= 13^2

199= 14^2 + 3^2 + 2^2

596= 22^2 + 12^2 + 2^2 + 2^2

999= 31^2 + 6^2 + 1^2 + 1^2

991= 31^2 + 5^2 + 2^2 +1^2

9999= 98^2 + 19^2 + 5^2 + 3^2

I have found out that the rule indeed goes with all numbers, even ones over 120.

The most numbers you will ever need is four squared numbers to make any number

Tony’s running distance

I think I could of run just a little bit further if I had more time when I did it the first time because I had only about 20 minutes or so. The rest of our class had about double the time I could run so that is what I think about my running distance. Also when I saw what my total distance on map was, I was quite impressed because I wouldn’t have thought I could run that in 3 runs.
