 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.

Weekly Blog 6- My favorite problem Hello fellow bloggers!

We recently finished our unit all about angle theorems and postulates, proofs, and polygons. Throughout the course of this unit we have completed many problems in class and for homework. My personal favorite one involved polygons and we did it for homework.
It gave us the sum of the interior angles of a polygon, and then we had to find the number of sides the polygon had. The sum of the interior angles for this problem was 1080 degrees. I particularly enjoyed this one because it allowed me to think of the equation that needed to be used, and apply it to geometry. I had to reverse the equation that finds the sum of the interior angles, 180(n-2), in order to find the answer which was 8 sides, or an octagon!
Look back at your notes, do you have a favorite problem?

Vacation is nearing and I hope you have a fantastic week!
