In grade 7, the best unit I liked was co-ordinate grids. At first, I found it a bit hard, but I began to understand it a lot more since I asked for help, so it became fairly easy. The unit that made me struggle was integers because I got confused when it came to adding and subtracting it -- since I couldn't do it properly. As we learned more about integers, it got a big easier, but i still find it confusing. This year, I will ask questions on the unit, since I didn't ask questions last year. Also, I will take time to practice units that are confusing to me. Lastly, I will study for tests and quizzes so i receive high marks.
This is now grade eight. To become a better student, I will ask questions if I need help, or to understand a unit a lot better. I will pay attention and listen in class, and I will finish my homework on time, and not procrastinate. Also, I will participate in class by answering questions that I know the answer to. I am looking forward to learning more about algebra, and how to solve different equations so I can get ready for grade nine.
I was a blogger last year, and I made a few posts. My favorite post was about the exam review when i blogged about lines, finding the area of shapes, angles, and converting fractions. I think I did well on the blog because I added color, a video, links, and pictures. Also, it showed how much I improved from my first blog. Blogging helped me become a better student because I had to listen in class so I can get all the notes I had to blog about. Also, it refreshed my memory about the things we already learned about during math. This year, I am looking forward to creating math videos/movies, and going to new math websites on the computer.
