Math Letter Dear Parents,

In Math we just finished module 1. Some of the things we learned were bar and line graphs, tallying data, sequences, exponents, squares, cubes, and Algebra. My favorite thing we learned is the exponents because I understood them the most and they are fun to do. Writing out the problem with something different than just the old boring numbers. My least favorite thing we learned was the Algebra because it was hard to understand it and it was just difficult but in the end I started to understand it more so it was all good.

We did a probability project that helped me get what it was. I did it with a partner and some people did the project alone. My partner was AJJA. Our project was pretty cool it was called Pizza Party my favorite part was the name, it sounds just so fun. The quizzes we took were really short because they were on small parts in the module. The big test is in the end of the module like the one we just took.

In class our teacher played this song on the order of operations to help us memorize what to do in the equation first. I remember by P.E.M.D.A.S. P stands for parentheses so you would do what is in the parentheses first. E stands for Exponents then you would do the exponents next, then M stands for multiplication that’s next after the parentheses and exponents. Next is D, it stands for division that is 4th in P.E.M.D.A.S. Next is A is for addition that is second to last and last but not least S is subtraction that is what P.E.M.D.A.S. stands for. Another thing to remember it is “Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.”

So that is some of the most important things we learned in our first module in math class. Thanks for the help when I needed it too.
