Last year in grade 7 the unit I studied and did the best in was probably the unit where you change fractions to percents and decimals. I think I did well in this unit because I was really focused on learning. What made me struggle last year was rotations. I'm not sure why I struggled with them but towards the end of the year on the exam I had practiced and got better at them. I think that I could still become better at them with even more practice.
This year in grade 8 to be a successful student I will make sure to listen and do my homework so that I will know all the information before the tests. This year I want to learn how to do harder word problems. I like word problems and think that it's fun to combine the knowledge from other units together to solve a problem.
I blogged last year and my favorite post I did was the one on the area of a triangle. I think that blogging has made me a better student because it helps me review what I did in class that day and helps me remember it so that when we are doing our unit test I know all the information. Another thing I want to do in math on the computer is maybe learn some interesting math web sites that can help me learn.
