 Jackson's Blog Previous Geometry This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

I am also going to watch the Miami Heat vs the Boston Celtics later, it is must win game for the Heat. The problem that I am going to work on in this blog is # 17 from the green version of test # 7. It asks you find the area of a deck that surrounds a hot tub if the hot tub has a diameter of 6 meters and the deck is 2 meters wide. When I took the test I knew how to do the problem but I just had a brain cramp and screwed up the final answer. The way to figure out this problem is to find the area of the hot tub and then subtract that from the area of the deck. The only formula that you need to use on this problem is a=pie(r) squared. The first thing to do is sub the number 3 into that formula and you end up with 9 pie. You then plug the number 5 into that formula because 6+ 2+2 equals 10 as a diameter and half of that equals 5. When plugging that into the equation you end up with 25 pie. The problem that I made on the test was that I forgot to subtract 9 pie from 25 pie so that is the last step in this problem. Your final answer should be 16 pie. Article posted June 7, 2012 at 04:49 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 363

The best thing I watched was the golf touroment where Tiger Woods hit an unbelievable shot to clinch the victory. The problem I am working on for this blog is # 12 from the green version on test # 7. It asks for you to find the area of a parallelogram that has sides of 8 and 6. On the test, I got the problem wrong because I didn't know the area formula for parallelograms but when I went back and re-did the problem while studying for the retake I realized that I had to find the height by making a 45-45-90 triangle because the formula is a=bh. I found that the height was 3 root 2 and 8 time 3 root 2 is 24 root 2. Article posted June 7, 2012 at 04:31 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 285

They finally got their act together and kicked butt. At work, I got the range cart stuck when I was picking up balls. Luckily I got it unstuck pretty quickly. When I hear SOH CAH TOA I now think of Sine, Cosine, and Tangent but before I knew what those were I would have thought that it was some native language. SOH CAH TOA helps me so much when remembering which one to use. Article posted May 30, 2012 at 06:25 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 29

Whatever they need done I will d for them. I also watched the Red Sox and Heat this weekend. My favorite area formula is the Circle Area because it just clicks with me for some reason and I can remember it so well. Whenever I hear pie r squared I immediately think circle.

The area's of polygon's is a little confusing for me right now but I will keep working hard to learn the information better. I am currently working on my scratch project. I had baseball practice earlier this morning and I just played some basketball outside. Article posted May 12, 2012 at 01:33 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 41

I had a great break and I am not really looking forward to going back to school. Article posted May 12, 2012 at 01:31 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 31

Since i missed 4 days of school i have had a lot of make up work to do and i got fully caught up today. I took the quest on Friday and feel pretty confident that i did well on it. I am currently watching the red sox, they are down two to zero. What is new?The Miami Heat play at 3:30 in game 4 of their first playoff series and i am planning on watching that in a while.

I am quite confident in myself that I will do well on the quest. I have been stuck in bed for four days and am getting ready to watch the Heat.

In their first three games this season they have been pathetic! After that game ended I changed the channel to the masters and watched a great finish. Bubba Watson had a great shot out of the woods on the second playoff hole to win. I am disappointed that Tiger wasn't in contention on Sunday but it was still a great day of golf. The game of golf is at its best when Tiger is the world number one! I did the geometry homework and I am pretty confident with this stuff because we have done a lot of it in Algebra 2 earlier this year.

I am so excited that golf season is finally here. Cape Neddick opens up next Friday and luckily we have no school. Just before I went golfing I looked at PowerSchool and saw that I got an 85 on the test which made me happy. I have no idea what the next topic will be in geometry. Only one quarter of school left!!!! Article posted April 3, 2012 at 09:28 AM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 59
