For some students, the skills that you learn in school such as factoring polynomials may seem irrelevant to real life. In the following clip, Daniel is preparing for a karate tournament but his teacher Mr. Miyagi is getting him to do mundane tasks such as waxing his car, sanding his floor and painting his house. As a result, Daniel gets frustrated and starts an argument with Miyagi. What Daniel does not understand is that Miyagi has actually been training him, even though Daniel does not initially see the point.
For this assignment, you will learn the skills the edit videos in preparation for the major project. The little skills you learn might be tedious similar to waxing the floor but when you put together your skills in the final project later in the term, you will see how much you have progressed!
Tasks for this Assignment:
Watch the Karate Kid snippet.
Download the video as a MP4 using a web software of your choice (e.g. ytmp3.cc).
Use either Movie Maker 10 or Adobe Premier Pro CC to edit the video to 45 to 60 second in length. The video should be edited to speed up the lesson that Miyagi is trying to teach Daniel. Also include a customized title screen with the name of the movie clip and your name.
Both Movie Maker and Premier Pro are rather intuitive to use but they do require some time to learn how to do simple tasks and even more time to add special effects. You may ask your neighbor or watch YouTube tutorials to help you learn and navigate around these programs. You have 4 classes to complete this task.
Go to the following link and find the entrepreneur (or celebrity) who matches your personality: bit.ly/2FSlRFU.
Go to office.com and log in. The username is firstname.lastname@example.org, replacing with your own student number and the password is the same one you use to log in with school PCs.
Include the following slides for the rough copy:
Title Page: entrepreneur’s name, personality code, your name, your block
Two Slides: Who is your entrepreneur (i.e. basic stats)? What is he/she famous for? What business and/or company is he/she involved with? Do a bit of research using other online sources.
One/two slides: What are your entrepreneurs’s strengths?
One Slide: How might you become a successful entrepreneur, given your personality, skills, interests, networking and other strengths?
Complete the rough copy, focusing mainly on content, by next class. You will have 5-7 slides in total. You will also have another class to focus on layout (i.e. how it looks) before the assignment is due.
Next Class: Modify your PowerPoint to meet the Tips for Effective Presentations (bit.ly/2FSnAuJ).

Start by completing the Matchmaker & My Skills assessments.
The Matchmaker assessment provides a list of careers that might interest you based on the results of your assessment. After the first set of questions, you will likely need to answer more questions to improve and narrow down your results. The jobs are ranked based on your interest.
The My Skills assessment assigns a letter grade to each of the careers in the first section based on your skills and ability. The careers with “A” and “B” grades are the ones that are worthwhile to be explored further.
