### Meldrick's Math Profile

Hello, my name is Meldrick Agravante and I'm a student in Grade 8 Math. If someone asked me if I liked math, I'd say "Yes, yes I do". The best thing I ever did in a math class was an activity of showing how the area of a circle and a parallelogram are similar using an orange, because we got to eat the orange afterwards (thank you Ms. Wilson).

In Grade 7, the best unit I studied was two-step equations and I found it easy because I studied it the year before in Grade 7. The worst unit I studied was integers because I found it tedious to draw the number lines and integer chips. I could improve this year by sucking it up and drawing the cursed lines and chips.

To be a better math student in Grade 8 than I was in Grade 7, I will try to do work faster and not do it at the last minute like I usually do (like now). One thing I'd like to learn this year would be how to use those complicated buttons on the calculator that don't seem to make any sense at all.

My favourite post that I made was my last one, How to Scribe, because I put a picture of Elmo, linked it to my favourite book series' website, and added an Adam Lambert music video, Whattaya Want From Me. Blogging helped me with math by helping me get caught up when I was away and also making math a little more entertaining. This year, I'd like to keep blogging and adding lots of videos to our posts, at least one math related and one music video.

1. Great job Meldrick! It was interesting to know what your worst unit was last year! Anyways, good job again. Keep up the great work!

2. Nice post, Meldrick! We know that you love math, because you are really good at it! (yy) I loved your post from last year even though you disappointed me with the video from last year but it's okay. x) Anyways, keep up the good work!

3. Good job Meldrick. I was surprised to find out that your worst unit last year was integers because last year, I thought that that unit was kind of easy.

5. Great job, Meldrick. I agree that drawing all of the number lines and integer chips really got annoying. I did not find anything wrong with your post.

6. Good JOb Meldrick. Your post is good. I didnt find any mistakes. I think your blog last year was also great, I see you were the first one to do it in your class.

7. Great job Meldrick,You really explained everything well and this was very interesting! I found no errors on your post, good job!

8. Good Job Meldrick! I liked how you used interesting words in your paragraphs it made them more interesting to read. And ofcourse you had to add Artimis Fowl to your blog. (tipical) jk;).

9. Awesome Job Meldrick! You explained all of this very well. Lots of detail. Next time you could have highlighted important words, and I also expected more from you! Well great job! Keep up the good work!

10. WOW MELDRICK AWESOME JOB!!! you like have every thing good on your post!!! your organized, neat and very very easy to read!!! GOOD JOB!!!

11. Meldrick, your post was VERY well done! Everything was easy to understand and well organized, next time color the important words. Keep it up!

12. Good job, Meldrick! I agree fully with you on your likes and dislikes of last year. And as for the confusing calculator buttons, once I found out what they did, math was a LOT easier, so I agree that you should check that out. Good job!

13. Good job Meldrick. The post was well done and easy to understand . Keep it up!

14. Good job, Meldrick your writing was easy to understand and read.

15. Great post Meldrick! I know this is a little late to comment, but I just figured out how to find your blog post. I totally agree how irritating it can be to draw every single little integer chip, I think it just wasted my time. I would really like to learn about those extra buttons on our calculators that we never seem to use (except for the squaring and square root functions) they never made any sense to me, it's almost like a different language, so I would really like to decode those complicated symbols. Well, my comment is getting long, so theres just one more thing to say: Great job Meldrick, and sorry I didn't comment earlier! (Oh wait, I stand corrected, that was just two more things left to say)
