My name is Kristel, I am in grade 8 math. If someone were to ask me if I liked math I would say that I dislike it a lot. I never liked it because out of all my subjects, math was the hardest for me to do. The best thing I ever did in a math class was learn how to subtract. It was really fun because we used cookies to help us and we got to eat them after!
My favourite thing to do in grade 7 math was to find the range, outlier, mean, median, and mode in a data set. I think I liked it best because it's the one I understand the most so it was the easiest for me to do. A unit that made me struggle was solving two- step algebraic questions because even if the teacher would explain to me many times I still couldn't get a head start. Something I can do this year that'll help me not struggle is to ask other people than the teacher and to practice practice practice.
To make me a successful math student in grade 8 I will try to participate more in the discussions I have by putting my hand up more. Also I would also like to get in the habit to always read my math notes so it's always in my head. There's nothing specific I would like to learn but I just want to be ready for the future.
Last year, I blogged several times but this is my favourite blog. Blogging helped me become a better student because once I did one blog I thought it was really fun. So, I decided to do it more which made me more invloved in what was going on. This year, I want to continue blogging posts.
