  • your problem, the solution and how you got there
  • information
  • a model or prototype OR graphics or diagrams (with captions/labels)

Y8: Capturing Exhibition in your ePortfolio

As a part of your exhibition tasks, each person is required to capture their exhibition work in their ePortfolio.

Your post will be in your UoI 5 (How the World Works) page.

  • Your post should have your group member names, the Central Idea and the Lines of Inquiry you wrote. You should outline the problem your group has chosen.
  • You can summarise your research and include photos if you like.
  • After the exhibition, you can include photos of the event.
  • You need to finish with a reflection of how the reflection went and your role in the whole process.

    It is summed up very well in this fabulous TED Talk:

    We looked at a variety of different pieces of art that were made using the sequence:

    As well as being used in artworks and architecture, nature is full of examples of both the Fibonacci sequence numbers and the golden ratio. Watch some of these videos which show you examples of this.
