### Emily's Math Profile

Hi! My name is Emily. I am a grade 8 math student. If someone was to ask me if I liked math I'd say, yes math is one of my favorite subjects. Math has always been one of my stronger subjects. The best thing I've ever done in math is use the unit rods. I liked using them because they helped me get a better view and understanding of the data we were looking at and it really helped me with future math problems I had to figure out.

In grade 7, the unit I did the best in was, the fractions unit. I thought it was usually easy to convert a fraction to a decimal and percent. I also found it easy to change a fraction to its lowest terms. I was also good at changing fractions with uncommon denominators to fractions with common denominators. The subject that was the hardest for me was algebra. I found it difficult at the beginning to figure out the algebraic expression for most of the patterns we looked at. This year I have to focus more on the value of variables to understand the process easier.

To be a more successful math student this year I want to focus more on the unit we are studying and take more notes so I can study off of them for future tests and quizzes. I am hoping that these things will help me grasp the processes and meanings better. I also want to try and finish all of the pages that are assigned in the textbook and the homework book so I have more practice with the work. This year I would also like to learn more about algebra so I can get a better understanding of how to create a algebraic expression.

My favorite post that I did last year was the one on "The Effects of Outliers" because it was the best one I had posted. The comments my classmates left we very satisfying for me because they were all positive. Blogging helped me become a better math student by helping me review notes if I couldn't find the ones I had hand written in class and it also helped me understand all of the units better with the examples, links and videos that my classmates and I had posted.
