Hey, my name is Tonie Reyes and I am a grade 8 math student. If someone asked me if I liked math, I would honestly say no. Math is my weakest subject and sometimes, I have a hard time understanding it. The best thing I have done in math class was fractions. I liked it because it was very easy, but as I got older it got harder and harder. I remember one time when I was in grade 4, I was in a group and we were given 3 different coloured paper. We had to cut the paper into 10 pieces and used it to make fractions.
Last year in grade 7, the best unit I studied was integers. At first it was a bit confusing but in the end it got easy. I did well on zero pairs , number lines, adding and subtracting integers. The unit I struggled in the most was Rotation, Translation, and Reflection. I didn't know how to show it on the coordinate grid but I knew the definitions. I will ask more questions, do my homework/work on time, and study harder so this year, I won't struggle so much.
This year for grade 8, I will pay attention more, check the blog more often for homeworks or tests, I will try to participate more in class by raising my hand if I know the answer, and also ask my peers or teachers for help to be a successful math student. I would like to learn algebra to get ready for grade 9.
Last year, the post i liked the most was about Integers. I liked it because i used different colours. But I would've made it better by putting more pictures, videos, and links. Blogging helped me a better student because it helped me refresh my memory, and when I miss a day of school or left my math stuff in school, I can just go on the computer and check the blog. This year, I am looking forward to making math videos, and other math websites.
