### Alec's Math Profile

Hello, I'm Alec, a student in grade 8. If someone asked me if I like math I would say yes because we use it every day in our lives. For example, when we go shopping, we use money which is part of math. Although there is many things to choose from, i would have to say the best thing i did in class that involved math was blogging. I love blogging because you have the chance to be very creative, and you also have the chance to show other people what you know in math.

Last year in grade seven, I loved doing algebra. I loved it because I thought it was fun and when I do fun things in class it makes me want to work harder on it, and sometimes it makes me get a higher mark. A unit i struggled the most in was fractions. It was pretty easy at the start, but once it got in to converting improper fractions to mixed numbers, it started getting a bit harder. I could improve that by studying more and maybe even by doing a little bit of extra work.

Grade 8 looks to be a fun year in math. I plan to be a more successful student this year and i could achieve that by studying more than last year. Actually, I have to admit, the only time I studied last year was when it was exams. I would like to learn more algebra this year since it's my favorite thing in math and I know it gets more complicated.

Last year, we also did blogging. One post (made by me) that I really liked was about subtracting mixed numbers. I liked it because to me, it felt like I did a really good job of explaining how to subtract mixed numbers. Blogging helped me become a better student by learning from other peoples blogs if I'm away that day. Without blogging, I may have failed some test. This year, I want to use the internet more in math and do more creative projects on the computer. I think this will help me learn math better because if I like doing something, it helps me get more focused.
