module 1 writeup Dear Mom and Dad,
In module 1 for math class we learned about probability, experimental and theoretical. We also have been learning about exponents meaning 10 t the 2nd power would be 100. I have learned a lot from Miss Harte, including a lot of fancy ways to do things. We used the Texas Instruments Calculators and she teaches us easy tricks to figure out problems. We learned a lot about graphing data and putting that information into a frequency table. Then from that we made bar and line graphs.
We did a really fun project for probability. We picked an object and picked it out of a hat or bag 100 times and then recorded the results. My friend Ksky and I did ours on different colored hairbands. It was a lot of fun and I hope we do more projects like that throughout the year.
Another topic we learned about was exponents. We worked a lot on these and it helps you to find answers on other types of problems. It can be tricky but if you get it it can help a lot, like instead of writing 5x5x5x5x5 1 million times you can just right 5 to the millionth power. See how much time you saved.
The last topic I'm going to talk about is graphing data and making frequency tables. This can help you with probability too. I like making graphs because you can graph just about anything. Thanks for letting me teach you about module 1.

Love, BRBR :) <3
