Journal entry # 7
This week has been so SO hectic. Thank god i was able to get everything done. Including this 7 hour project that i totally did last minute- litterally. it was this geometry project where we had to biuld a 3D model of a polyhedra out of find-out-which-material-works-best-type thing. We could choose to do 3 easy ones, 2 medium ones, and 1 hard one. my teacher was so vague about it and yet so strict on guidlines which made no sense what so ever. all i know is that she wanted it to be hard, sturdy, clean pointy edges, proportional shapes, and symetrical. yea. pretty much perfect. so she showed us some models and there was this one that i thought was amazingly proportionate made of foam board. but ofcourse like all the others they weren't "perfect". this one had some kinda gap at the edges cuz it didn't make a clean 90 degree angle. bullshit. but anyway i got an idea and bought a foam poster board and i would just take the fold of a carboard folder and use it as the egde of the polyhedra. on the day before it was due, thought about it some more...then decided not to after seeing this website where this guy practically made it out of oragami. perfectly too. i chose the Rhombicuboctahedron which was one of the more complicated ones. http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~jsm28/polyhedra/and at only acouple hours, foam board isn't really easy to work with. and all that gluing time...ugh. anyway so i opted for constuction paper and reinforced it with cardboard in the inside. it took me from 9p.m. to 4 in the morning. & LET ME TELL YOU. it turned out damn good. i was so proud of myself. i mean there were ofcourse it had it's imperfections but hey, i'm human. When i got to school, not gonna lie. mine was the best in class. so my teacher should give me an A if not an A+. i noticed that i've done really well on projects this whole school year. i should pay more attention to homework though. pictures later when i get my project (with an A+ on it!) back. :] examples of polyhedra:
