This week we learned about factoring polynomials, and somthing that helped me factor them is a simple list. There are 3 things to check when factoring, 1. Check if there are anything in common (like a GCF, a(b+c) 2. Check is there are 2 terms so you can figure out the interest more easily (2 […]

# week 5 – math 10

This week we looked at polynomials and multiplying them. Something that helped me work with polynomials is, the area diagram. It is basically an easier way to multiply 2 polynomials together visually. An example would be, (2x – 4) (-3y +4): When you multiply 2 polynomials together then you must use the distributive property as […]

# week 4 – math 10

This week we looked at trigonometry. Something new I learned was, how to draw a bearing and how to find a right triangle with that. First, to be able to do the question you must know how to draw a compass, Now that we can draw a compass we know how to solve the question […]

# week 3 – math 10

This week we looked at trigonometry. One thing I learned was how to locate Hypotenuse, Adjacent, and Opposite sides on a right triangle with a given angle. To find the sides, always start with hypotenuse, to find hyp. look for the 90 degree angle and the side its is opposite from is hypotenuse (H). Then […]

# Week 2 – math 10

This week we looked at exponent laws. But, something that I learned about is, scientific notation. It’s seems complicated when you think about it but it’s actually quite easy to figure out! When using it scientific notation, you tend to use more often with huge or tiny numbers. And in that I mean, for example, […]

# Week 1 – math 10

This week we were learning about prime numbers and composite numbers. I never learned what composite numbers were before so I learned the definition. Which is: Composite numbers: a number that can be divisible by more numbers than 1 and it’s self Some examples might be: 6 (6-1, 2-3), 24 (2-12, 6-4, 8-3), 30 (3-10, […]
