Hi my name is Sophia well most of you call me Sophie. I am a grade 8 student and my worst subject is math. I think it's because math is hard for me but maybe it's really because I don't try hard enough. Not everything in math is hard for me. In the beginning of chapter 2 there was ratio charts it was so easy I could do it for the whole year. But then there's proportions which I never really got(can any of you help me). MULTIPLYING. I do really poorly at it and in math support Mr.Harbeck taught us how to play a game that he did when he was in grade 4 everday at lunch time him and his mother would play the game so he could get better at it and I'm doing that same thing because it is one of the things that will make me a better student. I have so many goals for math because it's not just to pass grades it's for the future. You need to know and remember how to do everything you've done in school. Cause everywhere you go there is math. Same with reading, remember when you where younger you were just learning how to read( you thought it was hard but you're parents made you try harder)right. Well that's the same with math. Soon all of us will be so good in math we won't even remember that we struggled. All of us will be good at different times. Another goal is to keep and review every test I have done so when we have exams I know exactly what to do. Another one is to listen in class closely and take down notes for the stuff I don't know so I can get help on it later. When I was younger and I mean back in grade 3 I was one of the poorest math people in my class ever. But when it came to number lines. NUMBER LINES where my favourite(so fun:) wanna know why. Because we wold be in a group of 5 or 6 and then we would use licorise for the numer line and play diffrent number line games. My favourite part is the treats. Another thing we did in grade 3 was playing multyplying games and Math bingo. (so fun:). When it comes to math games I'm a pro cause all I think about it is winning. The same with vollybal(to me). When I'm practising without a ball it is so easy and I mean EASY. But when we are actually playing a game WITH THE BALL that's all I think about yes that's all I think about, the ball.
