### Breanna- Scribe 5

For this scribe i had to answer questions 18,20 and 22. Enjoy!

18. The question says if the square floor mat has a side length of 14m, what is the area of the square floor mat in square meters?

Here is my answer:

A=S2
A=142
A=14x14

The area is 196 m2.

20. This questions says that Adams uncle has instructions for building a shed, a page of the insturtions was not as clear as he thought.

a) The question asks for the area of the rectanlge. Here is what i did:

A= LxW
A= 9x4
A= 36m2

The area is 36m2.

b) Now this time is ask`s for the side length of the square, and this is what i tohught of.

I think that the answer will be 6 because when you square 6 it equals 36.

Ex. 2
6 = 36 or 6x6= 36.

22. This question ask for three questions that are connected to to the largest in Beijing that has an area of 396,900 m squared.

a) This question is asking about what the dimenstions on the square are. This is what i did.

630 m by 630 m
=630m squared = 369,000

The answer is 369,000.

b) This question asks if the dimention would be 629 m by 629 m, what would be the answer? I did this.

629 m by 629 m
= 629 squared = 395, 641.

The answer is 395,641.

c) This question is asking if the area is less than 394, 000 but greater than 386,000, what would the dimention between those numbers? I answered like this.

622 squared = 386,884
623 squared = 388,129
624 squared = 389,376
625 squared = 390 625
626 squared = 391,876
627 squared = 393,129

Those are all the whole possible dimensions that I could have.

### Scribe 6 - 2 Questions From Page 87

In this scribe, I had to pick two questions on page 87 and answer them. These are the two questions I decided to answer:

24. a) What are the next three triangular numbers
10, 15, 21
b) Add together any two consecutive triangular numbers. What do you notice about the sums?
The sums equal perfect squares.
Example, 1+3=4 3+6=9 6+10=16

25. A square digital photo on the computer has an area of 144 cm2.
a) What is the side length of the photo?

The side length of the photo is 12 cm.

b) The photo is enlarged so that the side length is now 36 cm. What is the area of the enlarged photo?

The area of the enlarged photo is now 1296 cm2

c) How many times as large as the original area is the enlarged area?
1296/144=9 The original photos area was enlarged by 9x
d) How many times as large as the original side length is the enlarged side length?
36/12=3 The original photos side length was enlarged by 3x

e) Use what you know about the square root of a perfect square to identify the relationship between the numbers in parts c) and d).

### Scribe Post #3

Show you Know Page 84

Determine the side length of a square with the area of 196cm2.
Prime Factorization:
196cm2 = area
14cm = side length
Side length = Square root
Square root is the number that
multiplied itself equals the
number you are looking for.

196 divided by 14 = 14
14 x 14 = 196

Questions from the text book:

3. The factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 36. Use words and/or
diagrams to explain how you know which factor is the square root of 36.
6 is the square root of 36 because 6 is the number that multiplied by itself you get the number your looking for.

7. Determine the prime factorization for each number:

a) Not a perfect square b) Not a perfect square
c) A perfect square

12. Determine the square of each number:

The square of a number is the area.
To get the area of a square you have
to multiply side x side.
a) 3 = side
area = side x side
area = 3 x3
area = 9

b) 18 = side
area = side x side
area = 18 x 18
area = 324

14.Determine the side length for a square with an area of 900cm2.

area = side x side
area = 30 x 30
area = 900cm2
The side length of the square is 30cm2.

### Scribe 4

17. A fridge magnet has an area of 54 mm 2. Is 54 a perfect square? Use prime factorization to find the answer.

54=2x3x3x3, No 54 is not a perfect square, its an odd number- factors 2 and 3

19.The gym teacher told the students to run twice around the perimeter of the school field. The area of the square field is 28 900 m 2. What distance did the students run?

1360 m

21.Kate wants to put a patio in her backyard. the patio stones each have an area of 1m 2. she created the rectangular design shown.

A) What is the area of the patio?

B) What are the 5 dimensions of another
rectangular patio she could build
with the same area?

C) Kate decides to make a patio with the
same area but she wants it to be a square
with whole number side lengths. Is this
possible? Explain your reasoning.

A) 56 m 2

B) 7m- 8m This is one set of dimensions for the patio.

C) No its not possible cause 56 is not a perfect square.

I'm in grade i wasn't here for grade 7 im new here
Hi my name is kyle I'm a math student in grade eight when people ask me if I like math I say sometimes I do good sometimes I do bad that's because I sometimes a little thing can catch my attention.

In grade 7 I was not the beast student in MR.Isfelds class I was almost never listened to him.

To be a better student i need to focus more on my subjects like math and L.A. and more.

I never did a post in grade 7.

### Krizna' Profile

Hi,my name is Krizna .I am i a student in grade 8.So if someone were to ask me if I liked math I would say sure.Math isn't a subject that i really like but i think its okay.Its not one of my strongest subjects but I don't mind it.the grade that i had the strongest in math was grade 4.Because in grade 4 i used to love doing division.Because i was really good at it.but I think math is okay.

On grade 7 i really liked doing problem solving I,really liked figuring out problems and playing with numbers.But sometimes when its like a multiplying kind of one its kind of hard.Last year was okay I got almost all of my work done.But I think I did well.

I know already that in grade 8 its just going to get harder But I'm looking forward to doing square roots.And i am looking forward to math n grade 9.

I didn't do a post last year because i never got the chance.But I was disappointed because i didn't do one and it was my on fault i got a bad mark.But this year i will try harder to do more posts and get better marks.

### Ryan's Math Profile

Hi my name is Ryan Mercado. I am a math student in grade 8. If someone asked me do you like math? I would say yes becauase math is important in life. I say this because when you get older and you buy things by yourself you need to know how much money you need to pay for something. The best thing i did last year was blogging because it was fun and you can help people when they need it. Also i think of it as test to see if I pay attention in class.

In grade 7 my favorite unit was fractions because i already knew some things about it. I did well in this unit becauase I knew what I was doing for the entire unit and if i had to I would explain how i got an answer. The unit i didnt do well in last year was the co-ordinate grid. I knew the basic things that you had to do but i got confused about the three transformations except for rotation. This year i must pay attention in class so I know what do in a unit.

This year in grade 8 i will try to help my classmates with things they dont get so they can get it and do the rest of the work with no help. I also wanna make more blogs because it will test me if I payed attention in class or not. This year I would like to learn more about algebra because im weak at it so I wanna try to improve on it so I dont have to always ask what do we do or i dont
get it.

Last year I did a blog about Why We Estimate because I wanted to help people who didnt get the unit. Blogging helped me get better because when i dont get something I can look at the blog and try to find out what i dont get. When were on computers in math class I hope to do more blogs and make sure I get homework done on time.

• determine the square root of a perfect square
A square number:
• is the product of the same two numbers; 3 x 3 = 9, so 9 is a square number.
• is also known as a perfect square; a number that is not a perfect square is called a non perfect square.

### Sophia's math profile

Hi my name is Sophia well most of you call me Sophie. I am a grade 8 student and my worst subject is math. I think it's because math is hard for me but maybe it's really because I don't try hard enough. Not everything in math is hard for me. In the beginning of chapter 2 there was ratio charts it was so easy I could do it for the whole year. But then there's proportions which I never really got(can any of you help me). MULTIPLYING. I do really poorly at it and in math support Mr.Harbeck taught us how to play a game that he did when he was in grade 4 everday at lunch time him and his mother would play the game so he could get better at it and I'm doing that same thing because it is one of the things that will make me a better student. I have so many goals for math because it's not just to pass grades it's for the future. You need to know and remember how to do everything you've done in school. Cause everywhere you go there is math. Same with reading, remember when you where younger you were just learning how to read( you thought it was hard but you're parents made you try harder)right. Well that's the same with math. Soon all of us will be so good in math we won't even remember that we struggled. All of us will be good at different times. Another goal is to keep and review every test I have done so when we have exams I know exactly what to do. Another one is to listen in class closely and take down notes for the stuff I don't know so I can get help on it later. When I was younger and I mean back in grade 3 I was one of the poorest math people in my class ever. But when it came to number lines. NUMBER LINES where my favourite(so fun:) wanna know why. Because we wold be in a group of 5 or 6 and then we would use licorise for the numer line and play diffrent number line games. My favourite part is the treats. Another thing we did in grade 3 was playing multyplying games and Math bingo. (so fun:). When it comes to math games I'm a pro cause all I think about it is winning. The same with vollybal(to me). When I'm practising without a ball it is so easy and I mean EASY. But when we are actually playing a game WITH THE BALL that's all I think about yes that's all I think about, the ball.
