In math we learned about measure & value, angles and data analysis. Measure is something to calculate the size amount and more. Value is the amount of things, So in the lesson we learned different units and also we did a project which talk about cooking and the ingredient. We need to measure the ingredient and what value do we need and more. Angles is two rays that come to an vector. We measure angle and also learn about how to x angle. Data analysis is good for us because people use it help them analysis data for their exploration and more. Here is the thing that we learned in the class.

I have changed a lot and also not just me, it is everyone. I think that I am lazy but after this exploration I felt like I did a pretty good job of trekking and also helping other people. Before I am a very quiet student but right now my friend can’t even stop laughing because of me making jokes. On the bus I make jokes, while trekking I make jokes, while eating I make jokes and more jokes. This exploration I have learned a lot and not just the trekking stuff also learned about how to help our teammates and other like communication and collaboration.
Traditional Food exploration is the most fun exploration that i have ever had. At there we learned about the Cambodian Food and Khmer Food, also we study about the khmer cuisine. Not just learn about Khmer Cuisine, we also learned about the story of each restaurant owner. On the first day of our trip we went to Siem reap and interview Mahob which is the restaurant that served Khmer food and other too. On the second day we went to Cuisine wat damnak which they served as a set of food or called as course. On the third day we went to Sugar Palm which served Khmer Cuisine food. My facilitator tell me to make a video about the Sugar Palm restaurant video. So I filmed some footage and the interview. And put together the video and here the video :
This Round 2 is kind of photography round because I got to learn photography from the exploration and multimedia class. Also not just photography, we also learn about the pixar story structure too. For the Pixar story structure we learned about the basic of making the story more clear and good. For the photography, we learned about the triangle exposure. The triangle exposure has shutter speed, ISO, and Aperture. Shutter speed is the length of time the shutter is open to allow light in. ISO is how sensitive your camera to light is. Aperture is the size of opening in the lens through which light enters the camera.
Here is the Exposure :
Cambodian Geography Book is an exploration that working on finishing up designing of the book in a software called Indesign. The book spent us 1 years to do the research and the designing. Not just researching but we are going out on a trip to other province to find more information. The Design is fun for me because we get to touch new feature in Photoshop and Indesign a lot. I’m the designer of Takeo province the back cover and the spine. It is really cool for me to create spine because I don’t how to measure the spine so I need to learn hard stuff like get the measurement of the book and also estimate the pages so that it fit the spine. My dream in the future is to be a User Interface Designer and I got to design a lot of graphic for the book.
Multimedia is a lot of things but the most famous one is online archive which is risky to student like us, so Cindy, our facilitator, train us a lot about how to search on the internet safely. After the learning of the Internet Safety. She bring us a new topics “Adobe Software” which some of Liger student know it like me. She doesn’t know much about some of the adobe software so she started to pick some student that know the software clearly to teach the other student in class. After studying Adobe software for one week. We have a homework that required us to us adobe Software to do it and also using our Internet Safety skills to do research about what we want to make. My project is talk about Pixar which is the animation studio. I wonder what they used to make their animation so I made a poster that talk about the software.
In Liger, We have 1 hour everyday to learn literacy. In the class, We have our lovely teacher named Hannah. This year we started with a topic called “Root Words”. Every Week, She will hand us a paper that is about the root words but in different theme. It is called homework packet.

Also not just the homework packet but we also have more reading about some famous people like William Shakespeare, Mahatma Gandhi and etc. Mostly we read all of this in some website that our teacher assigned like Newsela, Readwork, Actively Learning and etc. One of the cool project that I have done is creating a video that talk about a person that we would like to put in an exhibition. After we filmed and edited. We uploaded to Flipgrid. Flipgrid is a website that we can shared our idea and also to make video for your class assignment.
This is my 3rd year at Liger. All 60 juniors studied the Singapore Math Book. Last year we learned the 4A and the 4B Math Book. And right now we are learning 5A Math Book. Also not just the Math book, our lovely teacher named Samantha give us a hopeful website Khan Academy for more knowledge. Beside Khan Academy she found other Math puzzle or games online to make the class more fun. For this week she have a multiplayer math games for us to compete with each other. It is really fun and I enjoy Math so much.
