Hi, I'm Jomer. I'm a math student in grade eight! When people ask me if I like math, I hesitate to answer. That's because some days I love math, and other days.. I'm not a big fan of it. When I do good on a test, that's when I love math. When my class does work and I don't understand it that's when I don't like math. I remember in grade seven, every Thursday's our math class would have a test. One day it was about fractions, and I was excited because I understood fractions and I knew I was going to get a good mark on the test. The last question made us do a lot of work! I got the answer and I remembered what the teacher said, "You should always simplify a fraction." When we corrected the test, about five students and I were the only people that did simplify. I felt so proud because I'm not the smartest student in math and I got the answer right!
In grade seven I really liked the unit on fractions. I did well on fractions because i actually decided to study. I studied because fractions seemed interesting and easy. The unit that made me struggle was angles. I think it was hard for me because I didn't understand it and I didn't bother asking for help. This year when I'm struggling with a unit, I promise I'll ask for help so I could improve my work.
I'm in grade eight now. I know that studying and doing my homework will not only make me a better student. But it will also make me successfully pass grade eight! I'm looking forward to learn a lot of things this year. One thing I'm really looking forward to is Algebra. I learned Algebra last year, but I didn't understand it. This year hopefully I'll understand it more.
Last year, I was a very good blogger. All my post had beautiful pictures and very good information. One of my post was about order of operations. I was really proud of my post because a girl in an other class even took the picture I made! That blog had all the things it needed. Pictures, and a Video.. But I didn't have a link. Blogging made me become a better student because it shows I can do work on paper and on the computer. Some students can only do work on paper, or on the computer. But I can do both! This year I would like to learn how to use a Mac, and making a math movie. This year will be a very interesting year!
