 Article posted November 2, 2010 at 07:27 PM GMT • comment • Reads 91 One fine winter day, my family and MJJO's family were skiing down Loon mountain. MJJO, my brother, and I were lagging behind a bit, so we race down to catch up with the rest of our families. My brother was first, I was second, and MJJO was bringing up the rear. We skied over a roller, and I saw that my brother had already pulled in for a nice smooth stop. I, however, was hurtling down the mountain, and frankly I don't remember why. I was almost upon the gathering, and had no choice but to perform a risky hockey stop. When doing so, I hit a lot of loose powder and covered the group with a white mist of sparkling snow crystals. It was spectacular, clearing my six foot four dad by a good six inches. I stood watching in awe for the cloud to clear, while MJJO stopped next to me. This was undoubtedly one of my finest skiing hours. Article posted November 2, 2010 at 07:27 PM GMT • comment • Reads 91

We learned about patterns, and how we can figure out how to solve them. After we mastered the trick, we moved on to figuring out how we can solve them with algebra. We used T to represent the term, and we used N to represent the term number. For example, if T was 5 and N was 2, the algebraic expression could be T = 2N + 1. After algebra we moved on to exponents. Exponents are the little numbers above the bigger numbers used to represent a long multiplication sequences. For example, four to the sixth power would be the same thing as four times four times four times four times four times four. Exponents can also be used when solving a pattern. When we were done with exponents we worked on this thing called probability. Probability is the chances that something will happen, on a scale of one to zero. One is certain that it will happen, zero is that it's impossible. All the in between is just that, the in between. For example, if I had a bag half filled with blue marbles, and half filled with green marbles that have purple polka-dots, the probability of picking a yellow marble are zero. The probability of picking a green with purple polka-dots or a blue marble is one. The probability of picking just a blue marble is ½. Next we learned about the order of operations. The order of operations is the way to solve problems that have more than one operation. It goes like this; parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction. An acronym you can use to remember this is PEMDAS. I prefer to say Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. Those are pretty much the most important things that we have learned this year in math class, but I'm sure we'll learn much more.

As an intrusive igneous rock I metamorphize into a nonfoliated metamorphic rock. I now melt back into magma. I once again crystallize, but this time I am uplifted and exposed. When I am weathered, I get broken down and transported away. I am eventually deposited somewhere on the ground and lithify, turning into a sedimentary rock. I metamorphize into a foliated metamorphic rock, and then melt back into magma. Then I consolidate into an extrusive igneous rock. I metamorphize into a foliated metamorphic rock, but this time I am uplifted and exposed. I get weathered, transported, deposited, lithified, and end up as a sedimentary rock. I do not get metamorphized, instead I get uplifted and exposed again. I get weathered, transported, deposited, lithified and I turn into another sedimentary rock. I then get metamorphized into another metamorphic rock and melted into some more magma. I once again consolidate and turn into an extrusive igneous rock, but this time I am weathered. I get transported, deposited, and lithified. As a sedimentary rock I metamorphize, then as a metamorphic rock I melt back into my original magma form.

An Equinox is when there is 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. The name Equinox means "equal night". Summer is here when the sun is above the Tropic of Cancer. When the sunlight is as far north as it will go, there is a Summer Solstice, longest day of the year. Autumn is here when the sun is above the Equator. Like Spring, this creates an Equinox. However, this is the Autumnal Equinox. Winter is here when the sun is directly above the Tropic of Capricorn. When the sunlight is as far south as it will go, it creates a Winter Solstice. This is the shortest day of the year. On an unrealted note, this is also the only day when the Greek God of the Underworld, Hades, is allowed on Mount Olympus.
