Hi, My name is Breanna! I am a grade 8 math student. If someone were to ask me if i liked math i would say yes, because math is everywhere you look, and if you look at it from a different perspective then its really quite simple. Math, comes hard to me at first, but once i go through it a couple of times it becomes easy. The best thing in math class we did last year is learning how to skip count. That really helped me with my multiplication.
In grade 7, The best unit that we did was "the measures of central tendency" Learning how to do the mean, median, mode, range and outlier. It all came easy to me. I think the reason it came easy to me was because i had a definition of each word and an example. I think that the hardest thing to do was algebra. I think the reason it was a difficulty to me was because i would forget some of the steps and showing it in my work. This year i will practice these things in order to get better grades.
This year in math, for me to be successful i must practice and study the unit of math so i understand and do not forget steps in my work. Another thing is that i will make sure all of my assignment are on time and done properly, or the best that i can. This year in grade 8 i would like to learn a bit more about algebra and fractions.
My favorite post that i created last year was estimating and calculating homework . Blogging made me a better student because it would give me a chance to look over the work we did that day, and help my other class mates improve on their writing skills, along as my writing skills. Also if i missed that class for some reason i could copy the notes off the blog so i could keep up in math with notes and homework. This year i am looking forward to blogging about algebra and fractions so i could really focus on those to particular units.
