Hi, my name is Julibella and I am in grade 8 math. If someone were to ask me if I liked math, I honestly would tell them that it isn't one of my strongest subjects, but I sometimes enjoy dividing and doing math problems. I remember in grade 3 for math, we would have this ball with numbers all over it that you'd throw around and when you catch it, the place where your two index fingers land would be the two numbers that you'd have to multiply, divide, add, or subtract. I really liked doing that for math because the numbers that we would get would be unpredicted and it was fun to catch and throw the ball.
Last year in grade 7, I really enjoyed learning about integers, one and two step algebra, and adding and subtracting fractions. They weren't that easy for me the first time, but when we actually started to do more work on those units I began to understand what you were supposed to do and now I consider myself pretty good at them. Some units I had a lot of trouble understanding, like probability, and circle graphs. This year I am going to make sure that if there is something that I don't understand I'll ask questions and become more involve in the class and look over my notes more often so I won't struggle as much as I did last year.
This school year, I will try to participate all the time and ask questions when I don't understand something so can become more successful in math. I don't really have any specific things that I would like to learn this year, but I would like to learn something new, other than reviewing what we learned last year.
Last year for grade 7 math, I had to do several blogs. Not only do I have just one blog that I really liked, but I have two blogs. One of them is about the term 3 test which involved fractions, integers, algebra, and measure of central tendency. The other one is about solving one-step algebra. Blogging helped me become a better student because to be able to create a blog you'd have to know what you are talking about. I knew that there were going to be people that would be reading my post so I had to read over my notes and ask several questions so that when I did the blog all my information would be accurate and easy to understand. This year, I would like to play math games on the computers that would help extend my knowledge and maybe do some more blogging.
