11.1 Factors Influencing Data Collection

Quebec prohibition referendum, 1919

When I first read the article, I thought about my own opinion which differs a lot in the opinion of people during the 1900s, because to me, alcohol and  alcohol usage is a common adult benefit and not so much a sin or radicalism.

After learning about influencing factors, I now think there was a use of language, Cultural Sensitivity and time and timing …because during the 1900’s, people weren’t as open to the idea of alcohol usage had an effected on the decision making and results of the votes.

In the future, when reading and interpreting survey data I will make sure I understand the question and think about the influencing factors.

Depends how much your earnings are weekly or monthly. Its different for students and full time working adults. One way to save money is to create a savings account.


what i learned

I’ve learned a lot this week in math 9 Algebra. From powers, exponent, to powers of products, quotients and zeros. But what I learned the most that was fun and cool was latex Coding. It showed us how to make math equations look better on our edublogs. Otherwise, without this information, all our word problems and equations would mostly likely be messed up and everywhere. I learned how to make a division, fraction and power sign, changing colour of text and highlighting.

there are different ways to make an addition, subtraction, multiplication and division operations by using formulas. here’s an example: we would type $ latex 6 + 9 – 24 \ cdot 4 \ div 2 $ (some are spaced together and some aren’t) Than it would turn out like this: 6+9-24\cdot4\div2

I think writing formulas for operations in our edublogs for math is going to be very helpful for the teacher so that he/she can read our typing clear and save time.


words problems with fractions


Today, Johns lemon stand sold 9 1/2 lemons. Down the street, Stevens lemon stand sold 2 5/6 more lemons than John did. How many lemons did Steven sell?


Since its saying Steven sold 2 5/6 more lemons than john did, you have to add Stevens fraction to john’s fraction to find out the how much lemon Steven sold all together.  

9 1/2 + 2 5/6 (change to in improper fraction)

= 19/2 + 17/6  

(19×6=144)/(2×6=12) + (17×2= 34)/(6×2=12)

= 144/12 + 34/12 = 178/12 (Find the Greatest Common Factor)

GCF of 178 and 12 = 2

Now you divide 178 and 12 by 2.

178/12 = 89/6 (now you change the fraction to a mixed fraction)

89/6 = 14 5/6

Steven sold 14 5/6 lemons.

My digital footprint

My digital footprint is a big impact on my future opportunities because its will be the reason behind me getting a job or not. Not having a good digital footprint wont get me anywhere good, and I wont be able to have a good job or a good future. but having a good digital footprint will get me to a lot of places like a good job and good future. Always think about what you want to say before posting something and think if it will effect your school, work or future in anyway. My digital footprint is a big job in my life.

Three strategies someone or I can use to have an appropriate digital footprint is always having a good blog or website accounts. when going to a job interview, showing what you are working on online and showing what you love to do is a big help with getting that job. Always think about what you’re going to post and how it will effect you’re digital footprint, and you don’t always need to post personal things about your life on the internet if you don’t want people knowing.

The information I learned about my digital foot print is that it can be controlled and you get to decide what to put on the web and what not to. Don’t post something your friends tell you to post and you know that it is bad or harmful. All social media is fun but they all have a limit. Be wise before you type.

I can share my information about digital footprints by posting this on my blog or writing about it on twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. getting other student or adults that don’t know about digital footprints and sharing with them.
