Our group divided the work into five parts, one for each member. My job was to include the "who, what and where" of the battle on the Prezi. I also controlled the computer during the presentation for the class. Finding the information on the battle was fairly easy with the resources available in the classroom and on the computers. I used the textbook that we use regularly during class and for homework. I also used Ebsco Host and found an excellent article for the information I needed. The project was fun and an interesting way to learn about the Persian wars. Article posted November 29, 2011 at 03:05 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 375

Here are some of them.       We have done lots with frequency tables. They make the transition from data of an experiment to a graph simple. You keep track of your experiment by marking tallies on the “tally column”. When you finish that, all you have to do is count the tallies and write them down in the “frequency” column. Now all of the data for a graph is conveniently organized.       A new thing I used this year is algebra for predicting a term or sequence. If I had to predict the nth term for a series of sequences, it would be an easy task. It is simply finding a pattern in the series, removing the numbers associated with the specific sequence, replacing them with letters, and using the equation to solve n by inserting all the numbers for the sequence you want to figure out into it. It is easier than it may sound.       Probability is something I already knew about, but I used it in new ways this year. We did a project on it and we compared experimental and theoretical probability of the same experiment. I did my project with a partner. We pulled flavored Tootsie Rolls out of a bag without looking 55 times. After completing the experiment and figuring out the experimental probability we compared the 2. We were not surprised when the 2 came out fairly different.     Thanks for reading! Article posted November 4, 2011 at 03:21 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 106
