Math Letter Dear Mom and Dad,
Our class just finished working on Module 1. In Module 1 I learned lots of helpful things. There were a lot of worksheets and problems to solve. Here are a couple of the things that we did that helped me learn all of these important things that we did in Module 1.
I learned how to make a frequency table and what the differences are between a bar graph and a line graph. I also learned how to analyze graphs. When learning about analyzing graphs we had a take home quiz where we had to pick a graph from a newspaper and analyze it. I also learned how to make a bar graph using the data I collected from a frequency table.
I learned how to use variables to show pattern rules, and how to use symbols and algebra to explain how a number trick works. I also learned how to get a rule for a sequence and figure out the nth term. My favorite thing in this Module was doing patterns and finding rules for the patterns so that you could find the nth term.
I also liked the things we did on probability. I did an experiment on probability with MHHO where we picked Starbursts out of a bag. I also worked on probability with spinners and flipping one coin, two coins, or three coins. I enjoyed these activities a lot. I also liked that section because it refreshed my memory on theoretical and experimental probability.
I also refreshed my memory on Order of Operations and doing exponents. During the Order of Operations section we learned PEMDAS, parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction, which is the order of operations. We also listened to a song on the order of operations. We also had a test which I hope I aced, and a bunch of worksheets that I enjoyed doing because they were mostly very easy and fun. I had a great time learning these things in this module!

Sincerely,
CHBE
