### Sam's Math Profile

Hi, I'm Sam and I'm in grade 8. When people ask me if I like math I always say I like it but I'm not that good at it because math doesn't run in the family. My parents always tell me how much they struggled in math. I am starting to like it more and more though. In math class the best thing I have ever done is when I was in grade 2 and Mrs. Collins threw this ball with numbers on it and whichever numbers your thumbs landed on you had to add, subtract, or multiply. I liked doing this because it was active. We always fought over the ball and it was a method of learning that I liked.
In grade 7 I really liked the probability unit because I realized in multiple choice tests I had a one in four chance of getting the answer right (lol). I think I did well because it applied to everyday life. I think the fraction unit was the hardest for me to understand because it was hard for me to change fractions to decimals and stuff like that. This year I will try to pay more attention and try as hard as I can to read the questions over to myself.

This year I will study a while ahead of time and I will not procrastinate on my homework. If I'm not understanding something that we're talking about in class I will ask questions about it until I actually do understand it. This year I want to learn whatever the unit we are doing to the full extent.

I don't remember the favorite post that I created last year because that was definitly a while ago. I think blogging helped me become a better student because either if I was sick or I had some kind of game or appointment I could just check the blog. This year I would like to improve the speed of my typing, visit any sites that would improve my math skills wether its division or fractions, and talk to people on the chat box about math. I am exited to make that video also.
