my math letter to my brother Dear, Brother

I am writing this to you because my math teacher thinks we should write a letter about what we have been learning in module one of our math book. So we have been learning about, bar graphs, line graphs, analyzing a graph, frequency tables, number tricks, variables, algebra, patterns and sequences, tables and graphs, equations, terms and term numbers in frequency tables, exponents, exponential form, standard form, area, perimeter, volume, probability (theoretical and experimental),- we put names in a bag, cubes in a bag, a computer simulation, our own experiment that we got to make up, and we learned more about the order of operations, and we listened to a song about it.

My favorite part about the module was number tricks, probability, and order of operations. I liked number tricks because they are fun to do and I liked how the number tricks always work and that you could start with a number and then it would end up being your age in the end. Try doing this, start with your age, multiply by 4,divide by 2, subtract your age and what is your answer? I liked probability because it was really easy for me, and it was fun to do. The order of operations has always been something that I liked to do, I like it when I am challenged because I like to see how good i am at it and to see how fast I can go. But the order of operations is just fun for me, and a lot of the problems are really easy for me.

I didn't like the graphs that we had to do. The first thing we did with graphs was we had a take home quiz and we had to find a graph so that we could fill out the sheet that my teacher gave me. I didn't like it because it was a little bit boring and I already knew just about everything. I also didn't like exponents. I didn't like exponents because I don't like doing the big numbers like that, and I don't like how you have to have it in exponential or standard form. But other than that math and school are going well, and I have an A in math right now. Love, dsno
