Be the Change Allison’s essay, South African Storm, demonstrates key characteristics and deeds of good people in society. Her essay relates, as well as supports Gandalf’s quote in which everyday people can make a change in our world by doing ordinary deeds and being the change, we wish to see. Gandalf explains that quotidian people […]

Over the course of this semester, I have come to learn a lot. I learned that math isn’t always just numbers and finding an answer, sometimes it’s looking deeper at the question and finding solutions to certain areas, not necessarily the end. I (re) learned that mnemonics are so helpful in math and different ones […]
This week we started and basically finished our trigonometry unit which is our last unit of the year. Although the first couple days were review, the last couple days I learned a bit. I learned about two laws, sine and cosine. The one that stood out to me the most was the sine law.
This week we didn’t learn anything new besides solving rational word equations, which I found quite challenging at first. I constantly got mixed up and frustrated when trying to solve the word problems. But I finally believe that I have figured out how to solve them.
This week we continued our rational expression with adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing the expressions. I found multiplying and dividing much easier than adding and subtracting. However, once I practiced it a bit, I learned that it was quite straight forward and that I could use things I learned from previous units (ex. factoring) to […]
