Hello, my name is Marie and I take math in grade 8. When people ask me if I like math, I always say yes because it involves a lot of thinking. Math is one of my favourite subjects in school ever since grade 1. The best thing I have ever done in math class was probably fractions. It was the easiest to do when I was in grade 4, but it got harder and harder as I got older. I love adding and subtracting fractions. I remember one time I was in a group and we were given a big brownie the size of a math textbook. We had to divide it into 6 and we used it to make fractions. At the end, we got to eat it!
Last year in grade 7, I did my best working on algebraic equations. The order of operations was easy for me to understand, though it might have been hard for some people. I struggled the most in circle graphs. Converting the numbers to percents and degrees made it difficult for me to do. Sometimes, the word problems didn't make sense in my head. But, as I practiced it got easier. This year I will try to ask more questions from my peers and teacher so I wouldn't struggle as much.
I am in grade 8 now. To be a successful math student, I will do my homework as early as possible and not procrastinate. I remember doing that last year and it was a big mistake. I will also write in my agenda more often so I wouldn't forget to do my homework. This year I want to learn more about algebraic equations, and difficult word problems.
Last year I did a few blog posts. My favourite post I made was Range & Outliers. It was the last that I made and it showed how much I improved in blogging. Blogging helped me become a better student because I needed to listen and write notes in class to make sure I have everything to make a post. It helped me be more responsible. In computer class during math, I would love to go on math sites that I've never been to before. I heard that we would be making math videos, and I'm really looking forward to doing that!
