Math Letter Dear Mom and Dad,

Module one was a lot of fun! We learned about probability, algebra, the order of operations, exponents, and patterns.

I liked the patterns unit because I like figuring out complicated math formulas. It requires a knowledge of algebra so I was exited! I love patterns and figuring out life sized problems.

I also liked the algebra unit because I like using complex equations, and when I do algebra I feel like I’m one of those people on TV with the long equations written on chalkboards. It actually is fun to do algebra because it challenges my logic ability. I somehow always seem to do algebra the complicated way.

The exponent unit was very easy! All it is, is multiplying it by itself the number of times it says in the small number next to the bigger number. Did you know that one to any power is one? Same with zero, zero to any power is one as well.

I didn't like the probability unit because I felt it too repetitive. Well I do like probability I just felt that the unit just went on about spinners and dice and coin flips.

We were supposed to do the Stock Market Simulation this module but it was postponed until early November. Here's an example of something we did this module, try to figure this out!
