### Jayvee's Math Profile

Hi, My name is Jayvee and I'm a grade 8 math student. If someone asked me if I like math, I would say of course. I like math because it's easy for me. All you have to do is memorize formulas and you'll do good on test and quizes. I remembered a time in grade 3 about decimals when we played games using decimals.

When I was in grade 7, The best unit I studied is integers because it's easy and I did good on test and quizes. The unit that made me struggle is algebra. I always get confused with the formulas. I will ask more often for help so I won't struggle to much this year.

To be a successful math student, I need to be a more active in class and responsible by asking questions to my teacher if I don't understand something. This year, I would like to learn more about algebra and things that should be learned in future grades.

Last year, I learned how to make a blog and this blog is about Areas. I think this is one of my favorites because I had a lot of pictures. Blogging helps me to remember if I forget math homework pages then I'll just check it on the blog. I want to do more blog this year so I can do scribes better.

### Scribe 3 Show You Know Page 84 Page 85 Questions 3,7,12,14

7 x 2 x 7 x 2
7 x 2 x 7 x 2 = 196
14 x 14 = 196
142 (squared) = 196
or
square root of 196 = 14 (Sorry, I don't know how to put the square root sign)
The side length is 14cm.
Page 85: Questions 3, 7, 12, 14
3. The factors of 36 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 36. Use words and/or diagrams to explain how you know which factor is the square root of 36.
My answer: The factor which is the square root of 36 is 6, because 6x6 = 36, or 6 multiplied by itself equals 36.
If you want, you could use prime factorization to find the answer.

12. Determine the square of each number.
a) 3(squared) = 9 / 3x3 = 9
b) 18(squared) = 324 / 18x18= 324
14. Determine the side length of a square with an area of 900cm2.
square root of 900cm = 30cm / 30 x 30 = 900
I am sorry for the lack of pictures, I had trouble uploading. I managed to upload one though. Also, if the spacing is weird, sorry for that too.
I found this video about prime factorization. Hope it helps anyone who was confused about it. I know it helped me. :)

Reminder: Tomorrow, we have a math quiz. It will be about square numbers, roots and perfect squares, if you have all textbook pages complete, you will understand what to do, the quiz will be based on them. Good luck! :)

Here is my video

### Nicholas's Math Profile

Hello my name is Nicholas and I am a gr.8 student at Sargent Park. If someone would ask if I liked math I would say no. I don't like math because I never get 100% and its hard to understand math. In gr.1, I remember adding and subtracting with skittles. I liked this activity because we got to eat the skittles afterwards!

Last year in gr.7, I liked doing fractions because it was one unit that was easy to understand compared to some of the other units. The unit I hated the most was algebra, I thought it was sometimes hard to answer most of the questions.

To be a successful student this year I will do my work. I will try to do my best to get good grades on my tests. This year I will try not to be lazy, do my work, and pay attention in class. I would like to learn more about algebra so I can improve on it.

Thank you for reading, and watching. (:

### Alec's Math Profile.

Hi, my name is Alec and I have grade eight math. I like math because it's my best subject. The best thing that I ever did in math class is playing a game like spinning a spinner to find the experimental probability.

Last year when I was a grade seven, the best unit I studied is integers because it's easy and I did good on quiz and test. The unit that made me struggle is fractions because I get sometimes confused on changing it to a mix number or to improper fraction. To not struggle much, I need to not talk much

I want to be a better math student. To do this I think I need to be a more responsible by asking questions to my classmates or teacher if I don't understand something. Also I need to pay more attention to what the teacher says and not to talk much about non related to the subject. This year I would like to learn about algebra.

In grade seven I learn how to create a blog. My favourite blog is about the best measure of central tendency. I picked this because i have a video and picture. I also picked this cause I think it's my best blog last year. The blogging help me become a better student because when I forgot the homework's page I can look at the blog and check it. This year I like to play a math game or a math problem in a computer because it helps me alot when I'm doing extra work.

### Nikki Shannon's Math Profile

Hello my name is Nikki Shannon. I am currently in grade 8 and I am not maths #1 fan. If i had a choice to do math I would probably say no. I don't really know what was the best thing I did in math class.

The thing I was best at in grade 7 was probability. I thought it was the easiest of all units. The unit that i struggled with was integers. It confused me with the minus and plus adding and subtracting with the integers.

Now that i made it to grade 8, i would like to learn more algebra. I know a little about it and I want to learn more.Another thing I am looking forward to learn is a bit more of fractions.

Well... I did comment on most of the blogs but I regret never creating a post. I was assigned to do it a couple of times but I really didn't understand it.

### Karen's Scribe Post Prime Factorization is also a way
to find out if a square is perfect or not.

Square root is the inverse (opposite) of squaring, for example:
5² = 5x5 or 25
√25 is 5 times itself has a product of 25
5x5=21 || √25=5

Yesterday's Homework
Estimating in Fractions
1: 1
√2: 1 1/3
√3: 1 2/3
√4: 1 3/3 = 2
√5: 2 1/5
√6: 2 2/5
√7: 2 3/5
√8: 2 4/5
√9: 2 5/5 = 3
√10: 3 1/7 ...

See any patterns? The denominator is how many spaces are in between the 2 closest perfect squares. The numerator is how many spaces the square root number took going to the left.

√39 $\approx \!\,$ 6 3/13;6.24 x 6.24
√200 $\approx \!\,$ 14 4/29; 14.14 x 14.14
√850 $\approx \!\,$ 841 10/59; 29.15 x 29.15

Today's Homework
(This part gets confusing but I'll try to explain it as good as I can)
- make another number line with 1 to 25 square root numbers with one and a half (1 1/2) intervals
- write the fraction x fraction = 1-25
- on the bottom, write the decimal that is almost equal to 1, 2, 3, ... 25
- lastly highlight or box the perfect square numbers
* Don't forget to use ' $\approx \!\,$ ' the almost equal symbol. ## Tuesday, October 26, 2010

### Jocelle Garcia's scribe post Tell me everything you know.

1 , 1 x 1 = 1 , perfect square

2 , 1.41 x 1.41 = 2 , not a perfect square
3 , 1.73 x 1.73 = 3, not a prefect square
4 , 2 x 2 = 4, perfect square
5 , 2.23 x 2.23 = 5, not a perfect square
6 , 2.44 x 2.44 = 6 , not a perfect square

7 , 2.64 x 2.64 = 7 , not a perfect square

8 , 2.82 x 2.82 = 8 , not a perfect square

9 , 3 x 3 = 9 , perfect square

Square root is the inverse of squaring

5² = 5 x 5 or 25
√25 is WHAT times it self ?
has a product of 25
5 x 5 = 25 || √25 = 5

*Opposites *

x multipication , ÷ division
x² squared , square root

NOTES :
• Use fractions to show the estimated √ ( square root ) between 1-23
• How can you use " perfect squares " to estimate 's ?
√39 √850 √200

### Lizelle Scott's scribe. (:

Today, we learned and we checked over that paper that we made a number line and we showed our the square numbered. ( I would draw it for you, but it's so dufficult with this laptop. ):

Today we learned more about squared numbers, and we just started to learn about squared roots. YAAAY. :D

Today, we tried to make a square with 8 tiles. We failed, miserably. ):
Why did we fail miserably?

Because, It was a very dufficult number.

We tried MANY combinations of numbers,
like ,
2.75
2.3
etc.

Until, Mr.Math ( Tyler ) figured out that, this square root button will find it. [ this is a picture of, YOU GUESS IT. A square root sign. (: ]
Soo, we did this.

8,
and the answer on my calculator which is:
2.828427125

So let's 2 ( also known as squared.) it.

2.828427125x2
OR also known as, 2.8284271252 = 8
So we would need: 2.828427125 tiles to make a PERFECT square.
Dufficult , huh.

Well after that, you folded your number line, and we had to write this. :

_____ is a squared number.

The answer to that blank is : 16.

4x4= 16
. don't you just love how it's so HUMONGOUS. - I did that, because this is important information.

You also had to put :

42 is a 16 or a square number.

For room 8 16, and for the other classes as well you had to

Tell me everything you know me about the squares.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU KNOW. :D
