ACO 5.0 - Coding Altino Cars

Why is coding an important skill to learn, even if you don't plan to be a programmer? Explain Challenge #1 and tell us about the logic statement you used to tackle it. Describe each command (Go, Steering, Delay) that was required to program your Altino car to complete the figure 8. How did you feel working through the process of trial and error? (6 Sentence minimum)
Coding is important to know because even if you don't want to be a programmer.

The new commands that were required were While Loop which pretty much looped the whole process. Display Line made a display on the front of the car. The sound command is pretty obvious, it made a sound. I woudn't really trust a car that drives itself, due to the possibility of it messing up and crashing, and there's a chance of it being hacked, by hackers. I do think the regular ambulances could get replaced by the autonomous vehicles, it could be a bit more efficient.

ACO 3.0 - Art and Design

The Elements of Art that's used in my Still Life painting, are Line, Shape and Form. I didn't get to use any others because I am a very slow worker. I used the line element to draw the mug of course. For shape I really had to get the closed part of the mug so it can look like a mug. Form I really didn't do much, but it's there. It's the top back part of the mug, it looks semi 3D with that. Sadly I didn't get the chance to add value due to the fact that I am pretty slow with the pad. I think I find 95% of it enjoyable, the only challenging part was the pens inside/ getting used to the pad.

The landscape image was taken in Lihue on a sunny day. The difference between my finished still image and landscape, is that my landscape is actually finished. During the still image I wasn't spending my time wisely. I stayed with the steps so it would be simple and easy to do. It affected me by making this photo the best one out of all the rest, somehow.

The portrait photo was taken outside of the cafeteria. I am in the photo. This means to me that I procrastinated and I took it the last 30 seconds of recess. There's mostly all of the elements of art. The line is the outline of everything. Shape can be either on me or in the background. Form is 3D and it is everywhere. There's some value in the photo for example on my face, and part of my jacket. Space, Texture, and Color is pretty obviously seen.
I'm pretty shocked at seeing the results, not surprised I got a 1 on the still image I deserve that. But I noticedI got expert on the land image and the mix. I felt my highest would've been a three. I didn't really agree with the scores due to the fact that I found it very sloppy, but after looking at the critiques for a while, I decided why not and chose to agree with them.

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
ACO 3.3 Apply elements and principles of design to clarify, focus, or enhance a message or concept for a target audience. Principles of Design: Scale, Proportion, Unity, Balance, Harmony, Contrast, Repetition, Variety, Emphasis)

ACO 5.0 - Audio Production

My role in this project was as a vocal/ helping with Seth's script. It required me to check for errors and proper grammar, and use my voice. The rehearsal process is pretty important so we don't mess up during recording. We practice reading the script and going over it.                         

Honestly I thought we did pretty bad, it seemed clunky and very unorganized, but then I noticed the critique and everybody thought it wasn't that bad, and I was shocked. We got like a 3 score on average, so the audience must've been engaged and really into the project, or they were just being nice. The team didn't really communicate well in the beginning. I went up to Seth and said we got to do something. I would improve communication.

ACO 6.0 - Proprietary Information

The FCC is an agency of The United States government. The FCC is responsible for controlling the radio, television and phone companies. Copyright infringement is using the material of works that are protected by copyright without the workers permission. The consequences may vary such as, paying them from $200 to $150,000. You also pay for all attorney fees and court costs, or if you fail to pay you can get sentenced to prison for 5 to 10 years. If you want to use their work you can contact them asking if you can use their work or change it up a bit. "Fair Use" is using it but paying them in advanced, for example Spotify uses artists music without permission but they have ads, and when you receive an ad Spotify is pretty much paying the artist so they can use their music.

Confidentiality is the state of being kept a secret/ private. Information you MUST keep private is your social security number, credit/ debit card info, and your password(s) for social media & email, etc. On social media you can give out private information such as your location and your last name (Options). You need to have a password on social media or else it will be very very easy to access your profile (don't share your password). Censorship in music is kind of pointless, if you don't want kids listening to explicit language then don't let them listen to explicit language, but when they're older then yes, listen to it, everybody swears at some point in their life.


ACO 6.1: Analyze the use of copyright and proprietary information in arts and communication to facilitate responsible, legal and ethical behavior.

ACO 6.2: Examine ethical issues in arts and communications to make appropriate decisions related to clients, co-workers and society.

ACO 2.0 - Market Shifts

A market is where people sell stock. Markets can expand overtime as technology advances, they can sell much more newer items. For example companies such as Apple, they improve many things to the iPhone such as Face ID and their camera. Amazon as well, they released the Amazon Alexa, which is pretty advanced, it makes lists for you, remembers things for you, and even tells you jokes. The reason Borders was closed was due to Amazon selling the Amazon Prime which was a technology book pretty much.

 I think a good skill would be communication because most things will be controlled by voice for example such as Google Home / Amazon Alexa. Communication can also be used if you are presenting a idea or sharing your opinion on something and you really need to interest the people you're sharing the idea or opinion to. 

ACO 2.1 Analyze how shifts in market affect changes to media and design.
ACO 2.2 Evaluate how changing communication needs of a market are addressed by media and design.
ACO 2.3 Propose media and design solutions that address the changing needs in global markets.

ACO 4.0 - Communication Strategies

My communication varies on whom I talk to. For example when I communicate to my teacher and parents I don't cuss or say anything disrespectful for obvious reasons. As for my friends I would cuss, and I would be a little disrespectful, but not too disrespectful I don't want to hurt their feelings, because I would feel pretty bad. I feel more open when I talk to my friends and my brothers because they always have the best advice for certain situations. 

I'm still not sure what to do after high school, maybe an astronaut though. I think it would be cool if I was a astronaut and going to like space or something. It seems like a really cool career, and we might go to Mars later in life. I mean their is already a rover on it. Maybe as we get older and advanced scientists might be able to put people on mars, if we are advanced by then. 

ACO 4.1: Devise communication strategies to promote individual accountability and team success.
ACO 4.2: Use effective oral, written, and non-verbal communication skills to facilitate positive interactions.
ACO 4.3: Apply appropriate interpersonal skills to establish positive and sustained relationships with clients.
