IB Math 9 Vacation project


This project challenged both my film and presentation skills, but also my mathematical skills and practical skills such as making important decisions and being flexible to alter plans. Throughout this interesting combined project between math and digital learning, my group and I have used many different competencies. The most prominent competency we used was creative thinking, which was used both during the development stage and the filming stage. When challenged with having to split at first only a thousand dollars between four people, we were able to think creatively and while other groups stayed in hotels, we decided to get close and personal with nature and camp at an RV campground. This way, we were able to save money for more important aspects such as food and gas. Although camping, especially during the winter times, doesn’t seem like the best idea, we were able to put a creative spin on our video and make it interesting and enticing for viewers, increasing the chance that they feel they want to go on this specific vacation. We worked with the resources we had, and made creative changes throughout the way, like how we had to improvise to film a snowshoeing scene. I was able to do my share by bringing the tent we had to film with as well as acting, filming, and making the voiceovers for our video. I also was able to help organize the group and set dates for our filming. I took responsibility for finishing my part of the project by making sure I had everything I needed on filming day and organizing what we were going to film each day.
