When Will We Ever Use This Math!? By HM

For our final Project as Action in Urban Planning we once again chose a math concept we wanted to improve on and understand better and figure out how it is used everyday in the real world.  The math concept I chose to investigate was the Law of Sines, an equation used to find all the […]

Saving Chiraq by HM

For our final action project in Policy, CA, GL, DC, GF, JP and I worked together to prevent gun violence in Chicago through a youth-led organization called Project Orange Tree that affiliates itself closely with Lupe Fiasco’s foundation. Project Orange Tree is a campaign that wants to teach youth about gun violence and the roots […]

A Mixtape to Walk to by HM

For our fourth and final Project as Action in Soundtopia, we all collaborated to create a mixtape for the graduation ceremony that will be happening in just a week.  The process of this project was that each person chose four songs they thought would be good for the occasion and presented each song to the […]

Mashing Up by HM

The most recent Project as Action in my Soundtopia class was to create a mashup, which is a song that is comprised of at least 2 songs that can be combined together in some way to make them sound like one cohesive piece.  The unit we have been studying is beat so creating a mashup […]

Taking Action by HM

For our latest Project as Action in my Policy course, we were given the assignment to find a cause we felt strongly about and then complete 3 hours of service for an organization of sorts that supported the cause we were interested in.  I chose to volunteer on a Habitat For Humanity trip, an organization’s […]

Math in the Real World by HM

For our second Action Project in Street Math, we chose a math concept that we wanted to  improve our skills on.  Once we picked our math concept, we learned more about it and related a real world issue and occupation that uses this concept as a key part of their work.  I’m proud of myself […]

Pitch Remix by HM

For our second Project as Action in Soundtopia, we created a soundscape that depicts the  pitch of one of our favorite songs.  The song I chose to do was Angel by Jack Johnson because it has always been a really utopic song for me and manages to relax me and give me a carefree feeling. […]

Who’s Getting Left in the Dust? By HM

For our second project as action in Policy, we investigated an issue we feel strongly about and how it either is or can be seen as a monopoly.  Once we had chosen our issue, we had the large and quite honestly, daunting task of creating an infographic to effectively display the information we had found […]

Building a Bridge by HM

For my first Action Project in Urban Planning, which is my integrated math and science course for this term, we created bridges that were designed to hopefully hold up to twenty pounds.  In this unit, we have been studying bridges and how they serve the cities and communities they are in.  Not only that, we learned all […]

Listening to A Memory by HM

For my first project in my elective, Soundtopia, which explores sound and all it’s different components, we created a soundscape that told the story of a utopic (positive) or dystopic (negative) memory that we have. The memory I chose was a dystopic one and the story of tearing my ACL. This project was particularly challenging […]
