Math Letter Module 1 Dear Mom and Dad,
We are just finishing up Module 1 in our math book in our math class. I think we learned lots of interesting things and I hope I teach you something that maybe you didn't even know. I know you will be pleased with what we have been learning. Now, here is a brief overview of what we did during this module.
First we learned what the difference is between bar and line graphs. We found out that bar graphs are used when you have to group information into categories. Line graphs are used when you have information that extends over a long period of time.
Next we learned about probability. Our teacher told us the two different types of probability. One type is theoretical probability. Theoretical probability is what is supposed to happen in an experiment. The other type of probability is experimental probability. Experimental probability is what the outcome of the experiment is. In class we would compare these to probabilities and see how they differ.
Then we learned how to predict the nth term in a term number sequence. There would be a term and a term number. The term number is the number of the term in the sequence. The term is the number in the number pattern or sequence. We used an algebra equation to figure out what the next term would be. We also did some stuff on algebra equations. We would use n, then find what n would be in that certain equation.
The last thing we learned is about order of operations. Order of operations is pretty self-explanatory. It is the order that the you do the operations go in .We were taught that you have to follow PEMDAS. PEMDAS stands for parentheses, exponents, multiplication or division, and addition or subtraction. You always do equations from left to right. So you will always do the problems left to right using PEMDAS.
This is briefly all we have done for this first Module. I thought is was very fun and I definitely know I learned a lot. I can't wait to learn more in the upcoming modules. Hope you like this, and hopefully I taught you guys something. Bye for now!
Love,
KJCH
