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.
