It lasted from 1861-1865. 2 percent of the population died. During the battle at Cold Harbor 7,000 men fell in 20 minutes! I for one think that was a terrible,amazing in a bad way record. The first "greenbacks" were authorized in 1862, the year after the Civil War started. African Americans made up 10 percent of the Union army. General Nathan Bedford Forrest lost 30 horses and killed 31 men in hand-to-hand-combat. "In God We Trust" appeared on coins in 1864. The first shot was fired by the battleship named "the Merrimac." The first day at Gettysburg 15,00 men died. So according to these numbers, the Civil War was long, hard, and just plain bad. Article posted May 18, 2011 at 04:51 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 181

The dollar kind of threw me off, but you get the point. I never really thought that an engineer would use so much math. They use fractions, percents, ratios and lots more. Even a firefighter uses angles to point the water the right way. We all need to pay attention in math so we can be productive when we grow up.

My second favorite would have been the second one because it helped me with my multiplication and algebra. Article posted April 20, 2011 at 04:49 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 83
 Article posted April 13, 2011 at 04:29 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 74 No, I'm right! This was a funny video that taught you how to use the order of operations the right way and told you to work from left to right in certain cases (like with multiplication and division). It also taught you that computers can't always be trusted and won't give you compliments even if you prove the computer wrong. Article posted April 13, 2011 at 04:29 PM GMT0 • comment • Reads 74
 Article posted April 6, 2011 at 04:46 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 112 I thought this was a really fun game that taught you how to use negative #'s to get positive #'s using addition and subtraction. This really helped me understand negative #'s more. Article posted April 6, 2011 at 04:46 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 112

 Article posted March 16, 2011 at 04:30 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 79 I thought this was really bad, mainly because my brother is in Japan. This was bad in many ways. One is that the tsunami destroyed nuclear power plants. The earthquake at first was 8.9, but was made 9.0 and happened about 2:46, Japanese time, on March 11th, 2011. The epicenter was a surprising 130 kilometers. It triggered tsunami warnings in more than 20 countries. Article posted March 16, 2011 at 04:30 PM GMT0 • comment (1) • Reads 79
