RPC History 4 L85

Hello! Here is my assignment from Mr.Livingston: Summarize each of the inventions and inventors you studied this week and how they impacted history. Also, explain the most interesting thing you learned this week, and why.

I learned about the Mariner’s Astrolabe, The Double Entry Bookkeeping, Luca Pacioli, and Leonardo Da Vinci.

The Mariner’s Astrolabe. The mariner’s astrolabe was an navigation tool used for taking the altitude of the sun or stars. Its history dates as far back as the Ancient Period and into Medieval Period. Its name means “to take a star” or “star taker.” The mariner’s astrolabe was the preferred instrument for more than 200 years.

Double Entry Bookkeeping. Double entry bookkeeping system first invented in Italy by a church father who’s named Luca Bartolomes Pacioli. He was the mathematician and contemporary of Leonardo Da Vinci. He wrote a book which name was “Summa de Arithmetica, geometry, proportions et proportionalità”. This book called Accounting bible.

Luca Pacioli. Fra Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli (sometimes Paccioli or Paciolo; c. 1447 – 19 June 1517) was an Italian mathematician, Franciscan friar, collaborator with Leonardo da Vinci, and an early contributor to the field now known as accounting.

Leonardo Da Vinci this inventor was my favorite out of the four inventions I learned about this week because I like his name and he has a nice goatee. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was born in Anchiano, Tuscany (now Italy), close to the town of Vinci that provided the surname we associate with him today. In his own time he was known just as Leonardo or as “Il Florentine,” since he lived near Florence and was famed as an artist, inventor and thinker.

And that’s it for this essay!

More Baby Goats!

Hello! Last night I got to more new baby goats!

Their father is Edward.

Here are the baby’s and their mom! They are both girls. We will need names for the mom and the baby’s as the mom’s current name is Goat Who Keeps Jumping The Fence and I think that is a too long name.

Can’t wait to see what names you come up with that’s it!

RPC Science 5 L55

Hello! This week in science I learned how to draw many hard things I also learned that there are many different ways to draw.

I also watch these drawing tutorials that where very interesting There was many hard things to draw in it like in lesson 54 I had to draw a 3D landscape here it is:

The drawing has a barn way in the background. I also have a Kenworth transport hauling food from the local beef form to go to the market. Most of the fields are plowed. But the front field is a hay field. There are only deciduous trees left in the drawing because the lumberJacks cut down all the pines and Spruce trees.

That’s it!
