ACO 5.0 - Coding Altino Cars

Some of the ways that coding is an important skill to learn is the fact that the world is slowly becoming more and more "robotic" I guess you could say. so those jobs will become more and more in demand. In challenge #1 we had to create a decently complicated code to where the car could do a figure 8. also 'Go' controls your speed, "Steering" commands the wheels, "delay' controls how long and action will proceed. I had a hard time with the trial and error but I got through it.

Sound, DisplayLine are the 2 new commands that I got to use to successfully complete challenge #2. I personally would not trust an autonomous vehicle to give mw a ride because I don't feel they could react or have the instinct to get me out of a sticky situation. I do feel that autonomous vehicles well be used to carry out complex tasks because dominos already has autonomous vehicles delivering pizzas. Also theres the fact that my generation is becoming more and more reliable on machines doing things for us so i wouldn't be surprised if autonomous cars became and everyday thing.

ACO 3.0 - Art & Design

The elements or art that are used in my still life were line, texture, and value. I used line to "outline" and make my drawing standout a little more, texture to give my image more detail and more intriguing, and value to give my image more depth. I found that getting really close and getting those little details to be very enjoyable but theres not really anything that I found not enjoyable.

Using the Elements of Art as keywords, describe the similarities and differences between your finished landscape image and your finished still image. Reflect on your process... Did you stay with the more basic beginning tutorial or were you able to refine the image using advanced filter techniques? How did your technique affect the outcome? (6 Sentence minimum) My landscape was taken in my yard where you can over look the valley.

ACO 3.1 Analyze how elements and principles of design in various forms of media are applied to communicate to a specific audience. Elements of Art: Space, Line, Color, Shape, Texture, Form, Value.
ACO 3.2 Critique how the effective integration of elements and principles of design within a variety of medium impact target audiences. Gestalt Theory: Similarity, Continuation, Closure, Proximity, Figure and ground

audio production


some of the ways intonation and inflection can be used is like have u ever thought about if someone talks to you with the same tone it gets uninteresting and boring but if some one has a lot of intonation then the conversation is usually way more interesting and u actually want to stay intrigued. my role in this assessment was game show host on the script but for the team my role was vocal talent but i was not team leader that was garret. that job required me to be the vocal talent for the group. it was also very important t rehears because it make it to were theres a lot less editing.

In my personal opinion I feel like my group did excellent. For not completely know how to work with the tools that we were given. because me and ben were very lost. but we didn't do to bad. we met our goals on this project. we faced a couple obstacles along the way, for example we had a hard time figuring out how the script was gonna work for a gameshow. if i had to do this project again i would have more intonation, add a couple jokes and stuff like that.
