Hello, my name is Hazel Turdanes. I am a math student in grade 8. If someone asked me "Do you like math?" I would say yes, I do like math. Math has always been one of my strongest subjects in school. For me, the best thing I ever did in math was blogging. It helped me become more organized. I liked blogging because I learned how to do new things on the computer and I helped my classmates.
Last year in grade 7 the best unit that I studied was The Order of Operations. I think I did well in this unit because it was easy, you just have to remember what BEDMAS stands for. Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction. The unit that made me struggle was Transformations. I had trouble with rotating the shapes and finding out the new coordinates. This year, I could ask more questions and use my notes or homework book so that I don't struggle so much.
Now that I am in grade 8, I will be more organized and I will study for all of my tests and quizzes. I will also do my homework and hand it in on time to be a successful math student. This year I want to learn more about Algebraic Equations and I also want to be prepared for grade 9.
I was a blogger last year. My favorite post that I created was the blog about Subtracting Fractions With Unlike Denominators. I liked this post because it had color, pictures, and a video. Blogging has helped me become a better student in many ways. It helped me become more organized with my notes, I learned new things, and I listened more attentively in class. This year I want to continue making scribe posts, and I also want to make videos about math.
