 Eden'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.

 Article posted June 12, 2012 at 03:18 PM GMT • comment • Reads 67 The year is almost up! Although I've had a lot of fun this year, I can't wait for the summer. Over this year I have learned a lot of things and I think that I should pass along the knowledge to next year's Freshman. Here they are: 1. Make sure that you do your homework, even if you don't understand it you can still get credit for trying. 2. Stay Organized, you never know when a teacher will pull a surprise binder check! 3. Don't be afraid to ask for help, School is supposed to be a challenge, if it was always easy there would be no point in going. 4. Wear a Hawaiian shirt on Wednesday, but only if you have Ms. J 5. Don't use Mr. Barry's room as a hallway, he gets really mad. 6. The best water fountain is the one outside of Mrs. B's Spanish room. 7. Don't bother trying to use your locker, you won't fit anything in there, I don't even know where mine is. 8. Take advantages of retakes for quizzes and tests! 9. Don't be afraid to squeeze in with people in the lunch room, you can have as many people at a table as you want! 10. Last but not least, try to steer clear of the hallways after team, they are a war zone. GOOD LUCK, hope this helps you! Article posted June 12, 2012 at 03:18 PM GMT • comment • Reads 67
 Article posted February 15, 2012 at 11:11 PM GMT • comment • Reads 46 Hey everybody! We’ve been working lately on unit analysis. Things like ratios, rates, and unit rates. These things can be very confusing, so let me explain. A unit rate is a rate with a denominator of 1. To find the unit rate, all you have to do is divide by the denominator. For example- the unit rate of 360m/6m is 63.3m/1m (m being meters). You could use unit rate in real life, like miles per one hour, or number of gallons of gas per dollar. A ratio is comparing using dividing like 9 to 12. A rate is a ratio comparing two different units like 4 miles every 2 hours. Below is a website that can help you if you ever need help with rates, unit rates, or ratios. http://www.eduplace.com/math/mathsteps/6/e/ Article posted February 15, 2012 at 11:11 PM GMT • comment • Reads 46
 Article posted December 19, 2011 at 12:04 AM GMT • comment • Reads 58 I’ve had so much fun this quarter, I really feel as though I’m doing a lot better with tests and quizzes too. My class has made a lot of progress sense the beginning of this year. From my last post to now, we’ve perfected CLT (combining like terms), exponents, gone over monomial times monomials, power to power, and the distributive property. When we were fist taught CLT, I didn’t understand how to do it. Now I feel really comfortable, and I also feel as though I’m doing much better with monomial times monomials. I really enjoy doing powers to powers because I think that they are fun to do. My goal for the rest of the term is to raise my grade. That’s all for now, Merry Christmas!!

 Article posted December 5, 2011 at 03:27 AM GMT • comment • Reads 76 Hello! We’re nearly half way through quarter two and I think I’m doing pretty well so far. In this quarter we have already covered combining like terms (CLT), how to add, subtract, and multiply polynomials, multiply power to power, and exponents. I said that I would like to improve my mathematical skills, and with the help of Ms. J, I think I’ve defiantly made progress with that goal. Thank you Ms. J!!

So far this year we have gone over variables, solving and evaluating equations and expressions, order of ops, simplifying, integers, and real numbers. I've learned a lot this quarter and I'm excited for quarter 2. I have really started to understand math more, and I'm looking forward to learning more. Some thing that I found challenging this quarter was the solving evaluating the more complex and challenging equations and expressions. I was really proud that I got a 97 on my solving 2-step equation test. Sometimes it was tough for me to study, because I didn’t understand, or I got confused, I would ask my brother for help, and he’d break it down for me. I’ve had a really good quarter and I hope I keep on improving throughout the whole year.Thank you for reading! BYE Article posted November 14, 2011 at 12:17 AM GMT • comment • Reads 58

 Article posted October 12, 2011 at 09:59 PM GMT • comment • Reads 75 Hi, my name is Eden. I'm in algebra one, and this is my first blog. Ms. J is having us write this blog, I'm not sure why though. I'm in ninth grade and go to York. I can't say that I'm very good at math, but I would really like to get better. Here's to a good year!
