Since October, I’ve been focusing on systems of equations, inequality, and function. The areas that I feel I learned very strongly are something like graphing, writing equations from graphs or tables, the average rate of changes, minimum/maximum point, and some word problems. I often feel like I really need to improve on word problems because, one is the language, sometimes, I need more time to understand what it wants us to do. Word problems are something that is challenging for me but as I experienced, I got better at it the more I do and practice those word problems. In class, what I think I did well was working with friends – helping each other, and doing exercises in teams. Having work done on time as well as working on my own speed to make sure I understand. I usually don’t ask many questions until I practice it, then I’ll have some thoughts in mind to ask – either Jeff or my friends around me.
My goal for this round and the following rounds for the rest of the school years. Umm. Number one is to have better planning on homework, Khan specifically. Let’s say, the Khan is due one week from today, and there are 14 sections in the unit. So, what I need to do is to have a goal of doing it every day, two sections per day; something like that for planning. I also need to ask more questions in class related to the content. Even though I might not have any questions but I should ask to clarify or something like that to understand more.
It’s been great working with you and everyone in the class because I’ve learned much new stuff or reviewing something I’ve learned before in the government school but I forgot to get it back into my brain. I hope to achieve my goals and continue to learn more about math!
Mathematics, as known as Math is one of the basic, important, and my favorite subject. I felt so enthusiastic about the class and shows a lot of appreciation, and now, I realize that I love Math than I thought since I was very young.
For this round, we studied with two leveled books at the same time since the two levels are similar. The books that we learned were Primary Mathematics 5B, and 6A. We get to learn mostly about percentage, angles, and triangle. Now, I know how to convert percentage into fraction or decimal, I know the different types of angles and triangles. We did many exercises and activities in group and it improved my teamwork and communication skills.
For me personally, I think that even though it’s Math class but we still get many skills, too. I hope to learn many new lessons in the next round and stay tuned, there will be more post coming soon! Thanks for reading!
Before I start telling you about what I did in Math class, I have one exciting thing to share first. The exciting thing is that I received a new book (from 5A to 5B)!
The lessons that we learned were decimal, measures, and volume, percentage, and data analysis. What I enjoyed the most was the decimal lesson. For decimal lesson, what we learned were converting fraction to decimal and decimal to fraction, round and estimate the decimal, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with decimal.
For my thought for this round is that it was really fun and enthusiastic. I worked in groups a lot which helps me with teamwork and collaboration. That’s it for this round! Thank you and don’t forget to come back next time!
After that, I got to learn a new lesson about geometry. In that lesson, I learned about perimeter and area of the square, triangle, and parallelogram.
Then, I got to learn another new lesson, ratio. In that lesson, I learned about “finding ratio, equivalent ratio and combining three quantities.
Beside Lessons in the book, I was assigned to do some fun coding about math algebra on a website called Code.org. Khan academy is also one of the websites that helped me a lot in the past several weeks of math.
After I learned those lessons, I felt very enthusiastic in class and I can’t wait to learn more lessons in my wonderful class. Thank you so much for reading!
Math is one of the most important subjects that I need to learn and gain my knowledge and it’s really important for my future, too. In this first term of math, I’ve learned many lessons such as whole numbers, fraction and algebra. I was trying to make the best of my learning in this class and other classes.
In the whole numbers lesson, I learned about writing numbers in words and standard forms; adding, subtracting, multiplication, division, comparing numbers and estimating. For fraction lesson, I studied about proper and improper fractions, comparing fractions, mixed numbers, adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying Fractions. For algebra, we did some challenging algebra word problems but I did very well, too. Even though it was difficult, there are no right or wrong, it is our experience.
Seven weeks so far, I very enjoyed and I can’t wait to learn more lessons and do more exercises. Math is fun!
