Hi my name is Ryan Mercado. I am a math student in grade 8. If someone asked me do you like math? I would say yes becauase math is important in life. I say this because when you get older and you buy things by yourself you need to know how much money you need to pay for something. The best thing i did last year was blogging because it was fun and you can help people when they need it. Also i think of it as test to see if I pay attention in class.
In grade 7 my favorite unit was fractions because i already knew some things about it. I did well in this unit becauase I knew what I was doing for the entire unit and if i had to I would explain how i got an answer. The unit i didnt do well in last year was the co-ordinate grid. I knew the basic things that you had to do but i got confused about the three transformations except for rotation. This year i must pay attention in class so I know what do in a unit.
This year in grade 8 i will try to help my classmates with things they dont get so they can get it and do the rest of the work with no help. I also wanna make more blogs because it will test me if I payed attention in class or not. This year I would like to learn more about algebra because im weak at it so I wanna try to improve on it so I dont have to always ask what do we do or i dont
Last year I did a blog about Why We Estimate because I wanted to help people who didnt get the unit. Blogging helped me get better because when i dont get something I can look at the blog and try to find out what i dont get. When were on computers in math class I hope to do more blogs and make sure I get homework done on time.
