In my growth mindset project, my goal was to have by the end of the 2 weeks at least 5 drawings for my coloring book. I've been wanting to make this book for years. Something I haven't been doing in junior year is drawing, it's what relaxes me and makes me do something I love. The point of this project was to do at least something everyday that you want to do because it has been proven to make you a happier person.
The growth mindset project helped me begin something I'm so proud of and happy with. I only created 5 drawings, but that helped me begin something I never actually would've done if it wasn't for this project. Something else this project help me on is being less stressed. Drawing is something that de-stresses me and I love how time just goes by when I am drawing.
At my internship I continued this project and created my covers and almost completed my coloring book. I had spare time in then afternoon and having the skills I learned in editing softwares equipped me with how to make my book professional.
I applied the growth mindset project to math this year by how taking time after school to do things helps a lot. For example with the SAT, you had take at least an hour everyday to study so you would make improvement. And if you have a good mindset, have a date when you have to have something completed, it's easier to complete something because it's motivation.
This year I struggled with the Around King Arthur's Table. We had to figure out the pattern of the problem and create an equation so we don't have to plug in numbers multiple of times to figure out one answer.
What I struggled with was creating an equation by myself. To me it's one of the most difficult parts of math. Something about creating a rule is so hard for me. I think learning this skill would really help me because if I understand how to make an equation, I would be able to understand why or how a problem actually works. It's like taking a backwards step, figuring out the base of it.
