汉字是中国最古老的文字。从汉字我们可以了解中国的历史和文化。从汉字, 我们可以知道以前的人们的生活方式和习惯。从汉字我们可以知道中国以前的历史和故事。中国2008年奥林匹克运动会的标志也有一个汉字“京”。京字代表2008奥林匹克运动会在中国的北京举行。“京” 字也各年轻人知道奥运会在北京举办。“京”字在标题上也给世界各国人们知道奥运在北京举办

Isometric projection is a form of graphical projection, more specifically, a form of axonometric projection. It is a method of visually representing three-dimensional objects in two dimensions, in which the three coordinate axes appear equally foreshortened and the angles between any two of them are 120 degrees.

Isometric projection is one of the projections used in technical and engineering drawings.



Oblique projection is a simple type of graphical projection used for producing pictorial, two-dimensional images of three-dimensional objects.

Oblique drawing is also the crudest "3D" drawing method but the easiest to master. Oblique is not really a 3D system but a 2 dimensional view of an object with 'forced depth'. One way to draw using an oblique view is to draw the side of the object you are looking at in two dimensions, i.e. flat, and then draw the other sides at an angle of 45 degrees, but instead of drawing the sides full size they are only drawn with half the depth creating 'forced depth' - adding an element of realism to the object. Even with this 'forced depth', oblique drawings look very unconvincing to the eye. For this reason oblique is rarely used by professional designer and engineers.



Orthographic projection (or orthogonal projection) is a means of representing a three-dimensional object in two dimensions. It is a form of parallel projection, where the view direction isorthogonal to the projection plane,[1] resulting in every plane of the scene appearing in affine transformation on the viewing surface. It is further divided into multiview orthographic projections and axonometric pictorials.

Within orthographic projection there is the subcategory known as pictorials. Axonometric pictorials show an image of an object as viewed from a skew direction in order to reveal all three directions (axes) of space in a single picture.[2] Orthographic pictorial instrument drawings are often used to approximate graphical perspective projections, but there is attendant distortion in the approximation. Because pictorial projections inherently have this distortion, in the instrument drawing of pictorials, great liberties may then be taken for economy of effort and best effect. Orthographic pictorials rely on the technique of axonometric projection ("to measure along axes").

What is environment?
The environment is something you are very familiar with. It's everything that makes up our surroundings and affects our ability to live on the earth—the air we breathe, the water that covers most of the earth's surface, the plants and animals around us, and much more.

In recent years, scientists have been carefully examining the ways that people affect the environment. They have found that we are causing air pollution, deforestation, acid rain, and other problems that are dangerous both to the earth and to ourselves. These days, when you hear people talk about “the environment”, they are often referring to the overall condition of our planet, or how healthy it is.

Egyptian number system is a number system.What does it look like?It looks like this
1 =
10 =
heel bone
100 =
coil of rope
1000 =
lotus flower
10,000 =
pointing finger
100,000 =
1,000,000 =
astonished man
It is very easy to use the Egyptian number system . For number 2 , just draw 2 staffs,just like this:
1 =
10 =
100 =
1000 =
2 =
20 =
200 =
2000 =
3 =
30 =
300 =
3000 =
4 =
40 =
400 =
4000 =
5 =
50 =
500 =
5000 =
But in writing the numbers,the largest decimal order would be written first. The numbers were written from right to left.To write 2010 in Egyptian, is egypt10.gif(i think)

i think it means learning more ways to do something ing r thinking out of the box when encountering a difficult task
i think this value is very important .when we encounter very difficult we can think out of the box and maybe even solve it before the deadline

1)i have learnt:

a)how to get along with my peers

b)clean up my room


2)i would be able to make more friends and know more about them
In the past , my parents helped me clean up my room,now i know what are the troubles of having to clean up my room.
If one does not have the determination to do anything, he will not succeed in anything

3)I would choose either the rock wall or the mud slide.
I would want to climb the rock wall again because it was very fun. I stopped at the middle of the rock wall because I had a fear of heights. Somehow, when i was climbing,i felt like the wall was 'repelling' me , it was probably the angle of which the wall was built.I would want to try the mud slide again because it was scary at the top, but when i hit the water it was very cooling.the feeling i felt when i was sliding was very thrilling.

4)i would want to change my memory and be less forgetful because my forgetfulness has cause me a lot of time and trouble,this way , i can do things on time
liked the adventurous activities we had and how our teamwork improved along the way. I also enjoyed winning the rafting competition and getting second in the orientation camp. All in all this camp was a good one.
