Hello, My name is Patrick and I take Grade 8 math. When people ask me if I like math, I always say yes because it is one of my favorite subjects in school. The best thing I have ever done in math class was fractions. I really like fractions because they are fun to play around with and you can make them as small as you want. I remember when in Grade 5, when i was bored I would play around with circles. I would cut it up into small pieces and try to count how many pieces i made. It was pretty fun for me and it wasted a lot of time when I was waiting for something.
Last year in Grade 7, I really liked the unit on Fractions. I did very well in this unit because I really like to use fractions, to me it's very fun. The unit that made me struggle was learning about Pi. Trying to find the circumference and the area. I always got confused because I couldn't remember the formulas. This year, I will try to find out some tricks to remember the formulas.
This year, I will try to do more work and try not to procrastinate. Last year I remembered that I would always wait till the last minute to do my work, and sometimes I would even forget to do my work so i would have to rush it all right before math class. This year, I want to learn about anything new and things I never learned about last year in math.
Last year I did post a couple of blogs. My favorite post I made was about angles. I really liked this one because it looked very cool and I spent a lot of time on it. Blogging helped me become a better student by helping me review what we all did in class. It also helped when we needed to study for the final exam. I am looking forward for many things to do in the computers in math class, but I am really looking forward for making movies. I've seen some of the movies that Mr. Harbeck's previous students have made on Youtube. I can't wait until I make one of those videos.
