### Julibella's Math Profile

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.

1. Julibella, it is a good thing that you review your notes before doing a blog entry that way you can feel secure that you will get the mark you deserve!

2. Nice job on your post, Julibella. It's good thing to ask questions when you don't understand something, so that you can get good marks.

3. Great job Julibella, I liked the way you emphasized having to look over notes before you blog. Great links to show what kind of blogs were made and overall great job.

4. Nice math profile Julibella, I noticed that you review your notes before doing your blog. I also enjoyed your blog from last year but i noticed you have to favourites great job.

8. Nice post Julibella! I could relate to your post allot, like when you said you played that math game with that ball, I played the same thing in grade six, I really enjoyed that too. I also had trouble with probability too, it just confused me. I would like to participate more in class too, and I see that you are making an effort to do so. Im looking forward to reading more blogs from you, keep up the good work!
