Stage 1: Flatland & Slaughter house V
Stage 1: "project" DESCRIPTION
In Humanities and math 2 during "stage one" I read the first half of Flatland and all of Slaughterhouse-V. After which I had to answer 60 "discussion questions" on Flatland which never took part in any discussion. Then I had to make a "journal" in math answering four questions with 6-10 sentences each, then a week later had to make a "journal 2" with four questions requiring 6-10 sentence answers as well. Through reading these two books and completing Stage 1 I learned a few authors theories; Edwin Abbot Abbot who wrote flatland, taught me of his theoretical 2-D world where shapes live with just up and down. Kurt Vonnegut who wrote Slaughterhouse-V explained a fourth dimension in which Aliens lived in and can see all of time at once with their 4-D vision. In slaughter house a man named Billy Pilgrim becomes unstuck in time and uncontrollably travels from time to time, and place to place.
Stage 1: "Project" Reflection
1. I don't know what my learning experience was like during reading these books, but if I had to summarize it in a word it would be confused. Although I enjoyed the book, I didn't like reading a satire book in Math, I think it would have been more fit for a humanities class. One concept I learned through flatland is a world can be completely made of symmetrical and perfect circles and line segments. After reading both books I do see a very vivid connection between the two,
