Handwriting Analysis Interview

 

 

What is your job?

Answer:  ”I am a handwriting analyst.”

What does your job involve?

Answer: “I look at handwriting from a crime scene to see who performed a forgery.”

What are the most important parts of your job?

Answer: “Looking at the handwriting I have to be very accurate when looking at characteristics because that is very important.”

What area is your job in and how does it help your area?

Answer: “My job is in the area of forensic science, and it helps with finding out who forged a piece of writing.

What was your favorite case?

Answer: ”My favorite case was when a man called Bob forged a certificate of death, the next day the person that they forged it on John turned up at my house!”

When did you first get into handwriting analysis? 

Answer: “My dad was a police man and I really liked what he did so I looked at forensic science jobs and saw this and it just went from there.”

How much is handwriting analysis being used now  compared to long ago?

 Answer: “I think it is being used more accurately now but it was still used a bit back then but definitely not as accurate because we have much more high advance technology to help us.”

How do you think handwriting analysis will be used in the future?

Answer: “I think that it could go 3 ways it might only be used a little bit,it may be used as much as it is now or it may stop being used.”

 

 

 

Clyde Snow

Clyde Snow

Clyde Snow was born January 7, 192  and grew up with his father in fort worth texas. Clyde is a well known U.S forensic  Anthropologist. Clyde started his higher education at the New Mexico Military Institute  where he earned an Associated Degree

.

Some of Snow’s work is very  high profile . He helped identify Nazi war criminal Josef Mengele’s remains, identified the bones of a scout who died at Little Bighorn and examined the remains of boys and young men killed by John Wayne .

 

As you can see snows work has been very helpful to others in need of a helping hand. He has  identified many crimes and I find it amazing that his work has helped big events that are well known today.

 

Snow has used his skills as a forensic anthropologist, working tirelessly to reveal the fates of thousands of victims of violent situations . In 1984, under the sponsorship of the American Association for the Advancement of Science Dr. Snow travelled to Argentina to help the National Commission. Dr. Snow found the corpses of thousands of the young women and men, who had been tortured by the military between 1976 and 1983.

 

In the  1970s Clyde snow was one of the most famous anthropologists in  the world. Examining very important people . Clyde has also used many of his skills  for Forensic  anthropology for instance investigating  the Argentinian war and other cases around the world.

 

Clyde received  the social justice award for his great bravery and social skills. Receiving  this award is a great honour because it is not only an achievement but it proves that you have put your skills to work to do something very good with your life and done something that you are good at and not just because you think its cool.

 

I feel snow is an amazing man because he helps lots of crimes and people around the world. Before this project I knew nothing about Clyde Snow and now I know that he is one of the most amazing anthropologist in the world and he has helped hundreds if not millions of people world wide.

Maths mate sheet 6 term 4 question 22

Predict: Addition, Subtraction and prior knowledge.

Read: Move one match to make this statement correct.

clarify:–

Big question: Move a match to for fill this question.

Mathematicians toolbox:

  • Do I know a similar problem
  • Guess, check and improve
  • Try a simpler problem
  • Write an equation
  • Make a list or table
  • Work backwards
  • Act it out
  • Draw a picture or graph
  • Make a model
  • Look for a pattern
  • Try all possibilities
  • Seek an exception
  • Break the problem into smaller parts

Solve: First we took a match of the v and then replaced it with a match from the answer and we completed our question. the v then looked like this….

Maths Mate sheet 5 term 4 question 22

Predict: I predict that this is going to involve problem solving.

Read; Move two matches to leave four squares.

clarify;

big question; what two matches will i have to move to get four squares.

Solve:I took of the two end matches. The end left and the end right match to get 4 squares.

Bar graphs

Description 

This term our class is studying Forensic Science. As part of that we all had to take tally of the class and some given traits. After we had collected our data we then decided to put it in  to a graph of our choice. We choose a Line graph. Look below for image.

Mode:

Mean:

Median:

Average:

We then had to make a procedural text on how to make a bar/column graph.

 

 

Maths Mate Sheet 4 question 23

Predict:I predict this is going to involve multiplication and subtraction

Read: I think of a number double it and then add 8 .If  I end up with forty what was my original number?

Clarify:

Solve: so first i took 8 away from forty which equaled 32. Then halved 32 and got 16.

Answer: 16

GTAC Reflection

On the 31St of October half of the 5/6 went on an excursion to GTAC (Gene Technology Access Centre). We spent most of our day there as we were looking through Microscopes and solving crimes. Our Integrated studies program theme this term is Forensic Science. At GTAC we were trying to solve a crime about a puppy dog who was always running away , we had to workout were the puppy was running away to.

On the day we were split into groups of six and we all had a personal science trainer. My science trainers name was Carlo. Carlo studied Biotechnology. Biotechnology is a science, that as he explained takes some evidence and puts it under a microscope then looks inside the evidence to see a whole world that we cant see with the naked eye. This can help with solving crimes and looking at the evidence.

The main organisers name was  Justine she was a  major in science. Justine has recently done project on fruit fly and actually worked out how they are attracted to fruit.  Another woman was Nicole. Nicole has done a science degree and we were told to call her DR Nicole. These ladies were very helpful  with our problems and special needs.

These terrific people have been interested in science all there life and i guess its just a privilege that they get to do what they love everyday.
