This week i learned how to use algebra tiles to solve expansions. To use this method you put the first two terms on top of the box and the second two on the side, You then multiply.
This week in math 10 we worked with polynomials and expanding them. There are different methods you can use when multiplying binomials such as using the claw, area models and illustrating algebra tile diagrams. At first, I enjoyed using Algebra tile diagrams but now, I find the claw strategy much more efficient.
this week in math 10 I learned a trick to help me with Iscoceles triangles and the trick is when you have the triangle you have to “slice it in half” by drawing a line down the middle and it helps me because it helps determine a hypotenuse and the other sides
This week in math i learned about trigonometry, including Sine (Sin), Cosine (Cos), Tangent (Tan). SOH CAH TOA, is an easy trick to know which trig term to use to solve a missing side or angle of a right angled triangle and by knowing this I can now know how to get the missing degrees.
This week in math I learnt how to calculate the surface area and the volume of a sphere. All of these shapes have something in common however all of these shapes must have the same dimensions. with these relations make it easier to have a reference witch I find useful. shown below is all the relations I learnt this week
3 hemispheres = 1 cylinder
3 cones= 1 cylinder
2 cones= 1 sphere
1 cone + 1 sphere = 1 cylinder
1 cone = 1 hemisphere
this week in math 10 there were a few things that I learnt but the thing that should out the most to me was converting imperial into metric like 18,480 feet to miles.
in this conversion you will have to get 18,480 to miles you will do this by converting all this one by one like shown below.
x x x
after this step you will have to multiply all the tops together and then the bottom together
after this is done you will have to divide the two numbers then you will have your answer
this week I learned the multiplication rule for exponents and I also learned the 2 ways to solve problems that had multiple exponent rules. I picked the division first then power to a power because that’s the easiest order I find.
It was a Thursday right after b block it was lunch at the time. My friend approaches my with a shine of hope in his eyes he ask be do you want to come with me to my cabin this weekend without a doubt I say yes. For the rest of the lunch I ask questions about his cabin. Its Friday after school the next day my friend and I get to his house we eat and get ready to leave for the ferry. As we wait in the line for the ferry. about 12:00 both of us were pretty tired but we decided to help out with the unpacking of the food and other things, once all of the stuff that we broth was put inside we decided to have some dinner then go to bed. while trying to sleep all I here is the calming sound of the water oh the lake right beside the cabin and the crickets in the grass.the next morning my friend and I woke up extra early to go swimming and have fun on the water trampoline. after about two hours of swimming and having fun on the trampoline. once we got back food was ready after having breakfast we decided to play some golf. after getting all the equipment we shortly realized that we don’t have any water proof golf balls. so we went over to his uncles cabin right next door and asked if we could borrow some it worked out an we started to play. how this works was that we would have a hoopla hoop floating in the water and we have to fit the balls in it and we have five chances to get it in and when we are done we get in canoes and collect the balls and we did this till dinner and the winner got the extra slice of pie. after are game was done it was time for dinner and then we watched a few movies and fell asleep to them. the next morning was the day we were leaving it was Sunday now and we had are last day of school the next day. on the long road back I thought of all the great times we had and couldn’t wait till the next time I went up with him probably one of he best weekends of my life.
