Sick Brom

Dear beloved weasels,

I'm home sick, but I'm still thinking about our up and coming Candy Computer project...and I'm *so* excited!

While I recover at home from my nasty cold, you can pick ONE of the following two choices, and complete it during this computer period:

1. Respond to this blog post with three facts about the computer part that you learned about while completing the 'Climbing the Mountain' work sheet.
2. Explore the Beverly Glen Library Site, and respond to this blog post with the most interesting thing that you learned about today.

Once you've posted a response, you can have some free time to explore the Fun Links section of my blog.

If you don't understand my instructions, watch this video (please excuse the frog in my throat, and the screen resolution, I made this video, and went right back to bed!).

See you tomorrow!

Fondly,
Ms. B.

Hey. Ms.Bromley,
My Climbing the Mountain project was about the Graphics Card. Here are 3 facts: 1. The first graphics card was developed by IBM PC in 1981.
2. A good graphics card has about 512 MG in memory (1000 MB=1 GB) 3. The more RAM(Random Access Memory) there is in the graphics card, the better the performance.
That's all. Get well soon!

hey miss bromly I think it is pretty cool that we are makeing a candy computer.I am so excited and I can not wate.

Heyy Miss.Bromley,

During this activity, my group and i were researching The network card. Here are 3 interesting facts:

1. The network card allows you to connect to other computers.

2. The network card is located beside the sound card (If there is a sound card)

3.All modern computers come with a network card built in.

Hongjoo.J said...

Here are the things I learned about the network card:

1)If you don`t have a networkcard,your computer can`t comunicate between the network card.

1. I learned that without the soundcard, you cannot hear or make anysounds such as: music and recorded voices.

2.I also learned that DON'T eat any food in the computer lab OR ELSE mrs.bromley will be VERY mad at you. So don't even try:)

3.I also learned that RAM stands for random access memory (I thought it meant read-a-mania)

dylan r and jeremy m said...

hey miss fromley

Here are the things I learned about power source:
- the power source gives the computer power.
- the power source is also known as the power sypply
- the main power source is found under a fan

Darryl.G said...

My part of the computer that I am studying is the R.A.M here is three facts about R.A.M:
1)R.A.M helps you're computer to move faster.
2)R.A.M stops lagging on games and videos.
3)R.A.M is necessary for you're computer or else it will take FOREVER just to move your mouse an inch on the screen.

Michelle C. said...

I learned that the motherboard is what takes part of most of the computer,that the motherboard is one of the main parts of a computer & that it is also called the main board

Gouled.A said...

1.)r.a.m. is the something that makes your computer go faster so if you have 3 gb of ram of ram the computer whould load a lot faster than a computer with 1 gb of ram.
2.) r.a.m. helps you play games that are download and that have lots of space to take so it won't be lagging so much.
3.)without r.a.m your computer would go so SLOW that it would take years to just open a internet page

Brianna said...

Hey Ms,Bromley! i'm almost done finishing "climing the mounain" well...i know it's pretty late but i couldn't fine enough information. I've been learning about the power source/power supply and here are somethings that i learned while i was reserching:
1.) a power source is also a comtinuous power supply.
2.)a power source is a is also known as a battery.
3.) a power source has one a fan that helps cool down the parts of the system.
p.s i hope you get better soon!!! and i just need one more piece of info to finish!!

AdRiAn said...

I learnd that:

1)The hard disk stores all info
2)To get the info out you have to break it
3)You need more memory to save more info

ryan.t said...

what i learnd about the hardisk was:
1)if you don't have a hardisk you can't play any disk games.
2)you also can't watch videos on your computer if you don't have a hardisk.
3)so if you don't have a hardisk in your computer your computer is scewd up.

Hey, the Brom... here are my 3 facts on the sound card:
1)Similar to a graphics card, the sound card can translate the computers digital information and the rest of the worlds analog information.
2)The output wire is connected to headphones, some amplifiers or any external device which uses standard interconnects, like a TRS connector, to generate sound for us to hear. TRS connectors are Audio connectors, which carry audio or video signals.
3)Soundcard gets basically 2 different types of information. Waveform and MIDI. Waveform digitally records and replays, while MIDI is synthesized and sound like a piamo.

Dear Mrs Bromley,
First of all hope you feel a little better.
During the candy computer projects i was learninig about the Central Processing Unit, also known as the (C.P.U.)
My three facts are:

1.) The Central Processing Unit (C.P.U.) was first created by INTEL in the 1970's.

2.) The C.P.U. lives under the fan, heater.So first it's the fan then the heater the the intel/cpu

3.) the cpu has 2 main parts named:
the control unit (tcu) and the arithmetic/ logical unit (alu)

Elsa.L said...

Hi Ms.Bromley!! i've been learning about the power source/power supply and here are some of the things i learned from doing this activity:

Andrew.t candy computer

The fun I had with the candy computers is that it always break and that 1 2 or 3 people like myself would have to fix it.
I also liked candy computers because when the top of the tube was full of iceing,I’d take it to the washroom and when none of the members of my groupe was there,I’d eat it.

I liked candy computers because when I got frustrated I ate some candy 1.because it would calm me down 2.i’d know what candy to use for a computer like the c.p.u or the netword card.
