This round 1 (2018-2019) Jr. Essential Multimedia was an introduction to multimedia. Multimedia is content such as videos, photos, audios, image, texts, animations. Before we get deeper to multimedia, we learned a pre-multimedia which were how to do research on the Internet, how to use the Adobe applications and an introduction to programming. Do you know how to research fast and get the information that you want? Can you trust a website on the Internet? You can do all of that things if you know a simple trick. You can trust most of the websites that have the suffix of .org, .gov, .net, because the owner of the websites pays of that suffix. You can put a minus sign (-) to remove the information that you don’t want. For an example, I want to research about Angkor Wat temple. Sometimes, it shows something else that is not relatable to what I need. I can use the minus sign to cross the word that relates to information that I don’t want, “Angkor Wat -Beer” and it will show you just Angkor Wat Temple information.

For the Adobe applications, we learned how to use the photoshop, InDesign, Lightroom classic cc. We also make a PDF doc by using that three Adobe applications.

Our last lesson for the round 1 Multimedia, was programming. We studied about algorithm and divide and conquer. An algorithm is strategies or formulas to make repeating pattern problems much easier. Divide and conquer is one of the algorithm strategies. The word divide means to break down or split. Conquer means to take precession or take over something. When it combines together, it means to split and take over the problem and search for the solutions by splitting it into smaller pieces.

For an example from my Multimedia facilitator, Cindy Liu. “It was 10 minutes to midnight on December 24th, and all was not well at the North Pole. Some little elves were wrapping 1024 toys for 1024 good girls and boys. At 5 minutes to midnight, the elves called Santa Claus to tell him the boxes had been filled extra quickly, and Santa Claus was getting ready to leave.

Suddenly an observant elf said: “Where are your dirty socks, Santa?”

A young elf cried, “Santa, I’m so sorry, I dropped your dirty socks in one of the 1024 boxes!”

“Quick, unwrap every single box!” said Santa. “I’m not leaving until you find those socks!”

“Sorry Santa,” said the head elf, “but that will take too much time.”

“Don’t worry,” said Santa. “I have a big pair of scales. All of the boxes will weigh the same except the ones with my socks in it! My socks will make the box heavier.” In this case, we can use divide and conquer to find the solution. If it was me, my first solution was to divide the toys into two big piles and put each pile on each scale. One scale will be heavier than another so the dirty socks will be in that pile. Then divide that heavier pile into two piles again and put each pile on each scale. Repeat this until there is one box left and that will be the dirty socks. It will take ten times to divide.
