 Emma's Blog :) 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.

This means that I will no longer be a freshmen. I will be a sophomore, and have to show the freshmen the way to go! Here's my top ten advice for the incoming freshmen! 1. Get involved in extra curricular activities. They're a great way to meet people. 2. Never procrastinate. 3. Always use your best effort. It won't go unnoticed. 4.Get to know one of your teachers really well. They can be a great resource! 5. Study without distractions. It will pay off. 6. Don't crowd the hallways in between classes. 7. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand something. 8. The upperclassmen aren't scary. 9. Sit with as many people as you want at lunch. There's no restrictions. 10. Don't over stress! Hopefully that helps those of you new freshmen! Good luck :) -Emma Article posted June 14, 2012 at 09:06 PM GMT • comment • Reads 172
 Article posted June 10, 2012 at 03:17 PM GMT • comment • Reads 196 Hello again! As we are approaching our final exam next week, we are continuing to post review questions! These are aimed to help us remember the concepts we have learned this semester! The question I'm going to ask takes us back a chapter, and deals with triangles! Be sure to blog back with any questions. Q: A triangle has side lengths of 8cm, 11cm, and 14cm. Classify this triangle as acute, obtuse, or right. A: OBTUSE To find this answer, we first begin with the Pythagorean theorem (A squared + B squared = c squared). So, when we plug in what is known, our formula becomes 64 + 121 = 196. Here's the rule to classify: IF (A squared + b squared > C squared) then the triangle is acute. IF (A squared + b squared < C squared) then the triangle is obtuse. IF (A squared + b squared = C squared) then the triangle is right. In our formula, 64 + 121 = 185. Because 185 < 196, then the triangle is obtuse! Hope that helped and you learned something knew! This is my last weekly blog... but I'll be writing occasionally until the end of the year. Talk to you then! Emma Article posted June 10, 2012 at 03:17 PM GMT • comment • Reads 196
