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.
