ACO 5.0 - Coding Altino Cars

GOAL: Complete 2 coding challenges using Arduino Software with Altino cars.

Challenge 1: Complete a figure 8 pattern without collisions... fastest time wins!

Challenge 2: Ambulance responds to an accident... with lights, sirens and SPEED!


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)
I felt happy because i could start to get better at coding and it was very fun coding the car even if it was hard to do.

coding is important because it can help you get a job and help you with every day things on a computer/ phone ect... and you don't have to do pay someone to help you fix  your computer

Describe the new commands that were required to successfully complete Challenge #2 (While Loop, Array, Display Line, Sound). Would you ever trust an autonomous vehicle to give you a ride... please explain your answer. Do you think autonomous vehicles will be used in the future to carry out complex tasks like an ambulance responding to accidents... why or why not? (6 Sentence minimum)
the commands required in challenge 2 is the command to make the car light was like a ambulance and make repeating sounds

  I would trust autonomous vehicle but would  be kinda skeptical about it.

ACO 3.0 - Art and Design

First, what Elements of Art are used in your digital Still Life painting? Describe how you specifically used each element. Explain the relationship between the size of your texture brush and controlling the value scale of your image. What part of the digital painting process do you find most enjoyable and which part do you find monotonous or challenging and why? (6 Sentence minimum)

I used line to outline the contrast of my subject and my brush size was 12px 75% and i used the brush to make darker shading and i used 5px 75%

Next, explain where your landscape image was taken. 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)  i took my image at school and my image is a pic of a cup

Finally, tell us a little about the portrait photo you are using... Where was it taken?  mean to you? Explain how this final image uses all of the Elements of Art. Lastly, conclude with a summary of your critique results... Do you agree with them, why or why not? (6 Sentence minimum)

I used a photo I shot with the school's mac book.

My grade was not very good I did a awful job on my land photo it look's like something a alien would see I think next time i would put less contrast in my photo so make it look's more like a drawing and less like something a alien would see. I would have to agree with them on the grade I did a poor job on the still life image I rushed the photo and did not put a lot of time on the background and the pens on the mug and the portrait has a lot of scribbles on the hair and the shirt .  


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

GOAL: Write and produce an audio recording that explores the 7 Principles of Design in the style of a talk show, radio personality, podcast, game show, book on tape, spoken word, or rap.


First, explain how intonation and inflection can be used to maintain the interest of your audience. Describe your role in this assignment... Were you the team leader, audio technician, director, or vocal talent? What did that job require you to do? How important is the rehearsal process and what needs to happen before recording the entire script in ONE take? (6 Sentence minimum).
 Intonation & inflection helped the intrestest of my audience because some words needs more accent  or a more loud voice i was the vocal part in my team but ended up doing most of the script all on my own

Then, reflect on your results from the critique. How well did your team meet the project goal of communicating a specific message to your audience while keeping them engaged? What obstacles did you face along the way and what did you do to overcome them? If you had to do this project again with the same group of people, what would you do to improve? (6 Sentence minimum).

I think are critique was some what good and some what bad because we did not define all of the 7 principles of design that well we just crammed them in at the last second but i think lots of people likes r idea and relevance of answers.

TAG: ACO 5.1 Apply problem-solving techniques to create deliverables that address the needs of a client or target audience.

ACO 2.0 - Market Shifts

Markets shift over time because new tech and house hold items are made and are put into the market and the market changes for the type of item or tech that is made

I would like to develop my video editing and coding skills and they would help me with my youtube videos look good and making my video game idea a real game

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 changes from one audience to the next because when Im with Im at home Im respectful to my family and when Im with my friends at school we tease and joke about each other and when Im playing online with my online friends we try to be nice to each other.

Two job field's I would like to learn more about is Video Editing and Game Making

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.
