Hi, My name is Jasmin! I am a grade 8 math student. If someone asked me if I liked math, I would say yes, because I would be able to use what i know in the future, even though math Isn't my strongest subject. The best thing I've ever done in math class would probably be..learning how to skip count! Not only was it fun, but it also helped with learning how to multiply.
In grade 7, The best unit I studied would have to be "The Measure of Central Tendency." Learning how to find the mean, median, mode and even the range and outlier was pretty easy! I think it made it easy for me because the definition that was given for each word (mean,mode etc.) was very understandable. The hardest unit I studied was algebra. It was difficult for me to understand some of the steps and actually applying it to my work to help me solve the equation, also remembering to do the order of operation (bedmas). This year, I will ask for help and work on understanding the whole process to algebra.
To be a successful math student this year, I will ask more questions when i am having a hard time, and not understanding what i am being taught. I'll take more time to review what I've been learning. Another thing is to do all the homework that has been assigned to me and to do it on time. In grade 8, I would like to learn more about algebra, also a bit more on factors and divisibility.
My favorite post that I created last year is the Exam Review Study Guide. Blogging helped me become a better student because of the comments and suggestions that my classmates have made. They helped me how to make my posts better each time. Blogging also helps me refresh everything that I have learned in class. I'm looking forward to making videos about math on the computer, and blogging a bit more!
