Hi, My name is Mark ALDRIN Castillo and I'm a Math Student in gr. 8. If someone asked me if I liked math I would say, "Yes and No." because Math will help you in the future and will help you in other subjects and at the same time it's pretty hard to learn math and gets frustrating at sometimes. My favourite part of math class is when we got to learn a bit of Algebra last year with Mr. Isfeld because I really enjoyed the challenge on how to do Algebra.
Last year in gr. 7 I really enjoyed learning how to add Mixed Fractions because at first it was really challenging for me until I got some help from my friends and now I might say I'm pretty good at it. Last year I struggled on Algebra because the fact that you have to find what a letter stands for is really confusing to me.
This year in gr. 8 I will study and get some help if I don't get something to be a successful math student. I look to be learning more about Algebra because I heard from some students that in High School Algebra will be a big factor in your grading and I want to do well.
Last year, I did a few blogs and there was one particular site that I found really interesting and helpful, YouTube Video. I found this video really helpful in learning how to do Algebra and it's very understandable. Blogging really helped me to become a better Math student because it's like a second lesson because you'd have to read over your notes to blog. This year I would like to know more tips and tricks on how to blog better in Math computer class.
