I am a grade 9 student in Riverside Secondary School. I live with my mom and step dad and have been to many places such as california, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Kelowna and etc. I am a happy person who loves to pet animal whatever it is and lpve to play activities. My hobby is reading, playing basketball, talking to nice people and so forth. I love nature and books. That is all.

# Smitty Character Sketch

K smith a.k.a “Smitty” from the “ to fishermen” has lots of interesting quality who was viewed the  wrong way. Smitty

is a middle aged man who is married and h “as 5 kids. F out going he is, Smitty does not, “look like a hangman”

(calllaghan 1) because of being the hangman, most people would think he was cold-hearted and a person who likes

bloodshed, but he is a short man who is, “ very enthusiastic” Callaghan 1) Smitty’s overall appearance can be

described as: large head, small chin, a birdlike neck, grey curly hair and a wistful smile. One of Smitty’s joy in life is

fishing, he would fish all day long until he would catch at least one fish.

# Capital Punishment in “Two Fishermen”

Capital Punishment is a law that was passed down in 1865 and was abolished in 1914 in Canada. In 1976 they removed Capital Punishment from the Canadian Criminal Code and was replaced with mandatory life sentence without parole for 25 years for all first-degree murders. The Bill was passed by a free cote in the House Of Commons.

Thomas Delaney in the  story “The Two Fishermen” by Morley Callaghan did not deserve to be hanged because what he did was out of self defense against a guy, “whom he caught molesting his wife” (Morley 1). What Thomas did was protecting his wife, so he had valid excuse to beat up the guy, but he probably killed Mathew, who molested his wife, by accident. This story probably happened  around 1914-1976 in Lower or Upper Canada

My top 5 most important things in math 10

1. learning how to do linear equations.

learning linear was the most important to me in my top 5 because that is what I most remembered and I think the most useful to use in the future in math 11 and 12.

2. sitting with people

sitting with different people each unit not only help us understand and know one another, but also get us communicate and help each other in math problems and deepen friendship.

3. Pythagoras theorem

this is handy to know if you are doing anything with triangles. It can find a missing side of a right triangle if you have 2 of the 3 sides. a2 + b2 = c2

4. Ms. Burton’s Acronyms

ms burtons funny acronyms always helped me in tests and had and will always remember it.

an acronym: King Henry Doesn’t Usually Drink Chocolate Milk

stands for: Kilo, Hecto, Deca, Unit, Deci, Centi, Milli

another one: BFSD which is Best Friends Share Deserts

and stands for Brackets, Fractions, Simplify, and divide

5. A fun math class

in all math classes I have been in, ms burton always made it fun and entertaining everyday for her students. she always had something in advance and explained things thoroughly. she had things like fraction Friday and Meaningful Monday to help us study for tests. she was always there to help student at mornings and after school.

that is all I had for my top 5 of the week! going to miss math 10 and hope I will have ms burton as my math teacher again.

this week we did system of linear equation substitution and elimination.

System of linear equation is where you take two sets of linear equation and trying to find the point on where would they cross or meet.

to solve this system you could either substitute or eliminate. Substitution is where you take one set of equation and try to isolate a variable and then insert that on where your isolated variable is on the other set of equation to find the value of that variable. And also do this vise versa to the other variable to get the value.

The elimination method you either add or subtract the equations to get an equation in one variable. You have to “cancel out” one variable to get the other variable, after you insert what you got into one of the set to get the other variable and now you have the coordination of  where the linear would meet.

For this one I used elimination and subtracted from both equation the 3y and from there on I had the answer x=4, then I inserted it to one of the equation to where there would be an x to replace it and solve that equation and I had an answer of y=2. So the coordinate they would meet or cross is in (4,2).

that is what we learned this week on systems of linear equations.

# May Lab Reflection

One of my favourite lab that month was the perogies that we made. The lab took 3 days for it to make and in my opinion it was the best lab by far. The first day when we made the dough and the filling was good, the dough was perfect but the problem was the filling. I was the one who made the filling so it was my fault but when I made the filling, I made the chopped bacon and after I forgot to dump the bacon fat so, then when I sautéed the onions and stuff, it mixed with it so it was my fault, after that Henry was sick and so it was only Cham and me and Cham didn’t want to eat any because she was full so I was the only one who ate it. that was all and to be honest it was still tasty even though it was full of diabetes and wish we could do it again someday.

# What is in my junk food?

One of my favourite junk food is A&W Mozarella Burger Combo. I like the Moza Burger because of how it taste, how accessible it is because I love a few blocks away from A&W, and that I don’t have to prepare my meal.

It’s ingredients are regular beef patty, A&W seasoning, sesame seed bun, lettuce, tomato, bacon, and Moza sauce(https://www.aw.ca/foodfacts.nsf/NutrientsByRef/BFEB043EAE92A6BF88256DF00075AE5D?opendocument). It has 620 calories and 9 grams of sugar. The reason why it’s unhealthy is because I ate the Mozarella Burger twice a week at least and that it’s not the only one, the other reason is that it comes with burger and pop so that is added calories and fat. That’s why it is unhealthy and that we should be careful of what we eat. Also, overall burgers are addictive and after we eat once, you sometimes don’t stop.(http://www.menshealth.com.sg/weight-loss-nutrition/why-burgers-are-so-addictiveand-bad-you)

# Math Weekly blog post #16

That week we did equations of lines and solving equation of graphs.

there is 3 kinds of equations of lines.

to find the slope the equations is y1-y2 divided by x1-x2

the first one is called the slope-y intercept equation which is y=mx+b. To solve for this one you have to obtain the slope which is your M and at least your y coordinate which is your B.

the second one is called general form which is Ax+By+C=0. The A has to be bigger than 0 and all has to be integers for this to work, also it has to equal always to 0. To do this you can just do the slope-y intercept equation and trasfer the Y to the other side and your done.

the most efficient one is the slope-point form which is m(x1-x2)=y1-y2. To solve this one you need the slope and 2 sets of coordinates a and you have you’re equation in just seconds.

this is the slope-point form equation turned to general form.

i only needed one set coordinate and a slope and turned it into general form and that’s what I learned this week.

That week we learned how to interpret graphs of functions and to do distance formula.

interpretting graphs is explaining what is happening in the graph by how and what the slope looks like. When it is a flat line it is a constant rate, if it is going up your increasing and going down is decreasing.

for example

,

When I was walking home, I walked at a constant rate, then slowed down and and walked at that rate, then started walking again at a faster rate for a short while then walked at a constant rate till I slowed down to stopped at my doorstep.

this is how you interpret a graph function and how to do it.

# Math 10 week #15

That week in math 10 we learned about slopes.Slope is a number that describes how steep the line is and what kind of slope it is.

There are four type of slopes: positive, negative,undefined, and zero

Positive slope goes up to right , negative slope goes down to the right from the left, undefined slope is vertical to the graph, and zero is the line which goes horizontally in the grid.

The formula of the slope is rise which how the line goes to the Y axis,divide by run which it goes to the X axis.

For example I start in the (-2,-1)  with a rise of 4 then had a run of 3 the equation for that would be y=4/3x-1.

That’s what I learned this week
