# Week 1 – Precalc 11

For the first week of Precalc 11, we did a little bit review of Math 10 staff and started our new unit “Roots and Powers”.

First, in the review part, I learned a new method to factor the polynomials. Which is called “Box Method” , to me it is a more clearly and visualized way to shows the factoring process.

I made a mistake at the beginning with this following polynomial but after Ms. Burton taught us the “box method” , it makes more sense to me.

In the new unit, I learned how to evaluate the fraction radical.

# Grace’s Goals

#### Personal goal

At the end of the semester, I will get an A in my Science 10 class. I will take notes for each class and review it after school. I will study hard for my tests and each quiz. I will try to finish my homework in class and ask the teacher questions. I will try my best to complete the group work and project. And I will do every experiment carefully in the lab. When I get anything wrong, I will ask teacher first, or ask my friends for help after school.

I will pass the Japanese level test “N2”, before the 11th grade. I will by some grammar book and reference book about the test. I will learn these Japanese words and grammar by myself in my free time, but make sure to study two days a week. I will do some past test paper at home, if I have some questions that I don’t understand, I will look it up on my own first and then ask my Japanese teacher or ask my Japanese friends at school.

Taking too long?

# Pursuit of Happiness Reflection

The movie”The Pursuit of Happiness”is a story about that a father never give up and succeed in the end. I like this movie. This is the second time I have seen the movie, it brings me a lot of different feelings.

“You got a dream, you gotta protect it.People can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. Ifyou want something, go get it., Period”. This sentence was impressed me a lot. I think most people will remember this sentence after having seen this movie. Our dream is precious; there is no denying that we should protectit from anything!

In this movie the protagonist is called ChrisGardner. For him, his life has been divided to six parts.

Firstly, Riding the bus. He was riding the bus every day, and in pursuit.
Secondly, Being stupid . At that time, he was doing something foolish. He lost his bone density scanner.
Thirdly, Running.  He was running for everything, running for his job,for opportunity and running with the time. At this part his wife left him.
Fourthly, Intership. He got a chance for internship. But it was very difficult to past the test and got a job. Even so, he decided to catch the chance. Because he didn’t want to give up any other chances.
Fifthly, Paying taxes. In that time,healmost felt that what he had done was worthless. He was depressed, that the first time he was cried.
Sixthly ,Happiness .He  past the test, he ran away, to find his son and share with him. He finally got success,and find his happiness.  It was the second time he had dropped tears.But this time, the tears are because of happiness.

Through this movie I learned if you got a dream you gotta protect it, go get it and never give up. No metter how difficult it is. Never give up,and don’t lose hope, just keep going, and you will get it!

# Thank you Ma’am Quick Write

In my middle school,my second language was Japanese.  In our class,all of us learned Japanese.

But my best friend Betty,she was not good at Japanese.I was very good at Japanese,because I like Japanese anime. So I often help her learn Japanese during my free time.We started to watch anime together.When we watched anime, I often tell her some Japanese grammar.

Little by little, her  Japanese was improved, and our friendship grew stronger.
