## Week 2 in math

Throughout this past week i have learned more about prime factorization. Speciffically how to demonstrate prime factorization, you can use one of two ways. You could use a factor tree (first picture) or a divison table (second picture) to find out the prime factorization. For both methods you start with the lowest prime factor, and divide it into the example number. Then you continue to do the same thing with that number untill it no longer factors perfectly, then you take the next lowest prime number that factors and the rule continues on. I prefer to use division tables becasue with especially largr numbers, in factor trees the work can get sloppy and confusing.

Linear relations

Video 1: https://youtu.be/1xfbBHE3UCA

In this video it is explaining how you can take an increasing or decreasing patteren and put it into a chart, representing a constant change in the independnt and dependant variable. They are showing you how you can take constant patterned information, chart it and turn it into an expression which you can then follow to continue the pattern. For example they use the relation between the distance a car is going and the cost of gas per that distance.

Video 2: https://youtu.be/MweKCXkZ1GA

This video is similar to the last video but it has more of an explanation of y=mx+b and he explains more about what each part of that expression represents. M=slope b=y-intercept. He also explains what that means into further detail as if you were learning linear relations for the first time. He does more exmples with finding x and y and graphing it rather than charting it using different examples with different variables.

Linear equations and innequalities

Video 1: https://youtu.be/bAerID24QJ0

This video starts off by demonstrating how isolate x/find x in a simple linear equation. He also shows you how to deal with an equation if it is involving fractions, he shows you that expressing linear equations with fractions is the same thing but you multiply by the reciprocal to isolate the variable. He also demonstrates how you can check your final answer by substituting x.

Video 2: https://youtu.be/0X-bMeIN53I

This video is based on linear inequalities, he first explains what a linear inequality is. Then he tell you a very important rule, that when dividing by a negative number you must flip the inequality. He then gives an example of what that means. Throughout the video he goes on explaining more concepts and steps, he then demonstrates examples. Unfortunatley he does not explain the 3 steps of checking your answer, his video is more based on making sure you know the rule of flipping the sign and examples being demonstrated and solved.

Scale factor and similarity

Video 1: https://youtu.be/XtkU4VkWh8I

He begins with defining what scale factor is, he then demonstrates how to calculate it and how to use it. He explains all of the terminology he uses to a better, simple understanding. He first changes the values so that they are in the same units, then compares the larger image to the smaller image, he demonstrates how to fin =d the scale factor by comparing the values of one object to the other. He demonstrates cross multiplication to find the unknown length.

Video 2: https://youtu.be/FmZ2sKDb2SI

This video is only 1 of 8 on this topic, but he begines by explaning what similarity is. He explains that with similarity the corresponding angles are equal and that the corresponding sides are in proportion. He then demonstrates examples in order to explain what that means. He explains that the objective of similarity is to find the scale factor. He shows how to use scale factor to find side “x” based on similarity. He also explains cross mutiplication to find the missing length of an object

## Year end reflection

During this semester i learned how to identify different types of patterns and themes in poems, how to write with better detail so that the reader can get a better understanding and visualization of what’s happenning, and how to make good in depth connections to a book, to the world, or to the enviroment.

My favourite memory was when we were all gathered in a circle and we played games where we had to do an action to pass on to the other person, i found that alot of fun

Next year i’ll make sure i tripple check my work for even the smallest grammar mistakes and ask more questions to get a better understanding

## Hubbard2017DAReflections

After reading the first article it made me realize how dangerous social media really is. There are lots of fake accounts out there that are being used for various things, and alot of people tend to believe whatever they read on the internet. After reading this article i will definitly try and be more careful and not believe every single thing i see or read off of the internet because there is a possibility it could be a scam, it made me more aware of how social medias can affect a person or multiple people if they are targeted by it.

the second link has given me a reminder that alot of information on the internet is fake or not 100% true and that if i wan’t to believe that something is 100% true, then i should research more about the topic and see if i get the same results on more than one website. Also i really dont like the fact that people had posted tragedies that were made up to get a form of attention.

Both of these links have a large affect of me because social medias are a big part of my life and generation and to think that i cannot rely on something so big puts an impact on me because then i think well what’s the point of social medias then?

## Statistics

statistics play a large role in our society, the role of statistics is used in many ways and can affect the way we make decisions. It is a way of having a source of knowledge on whether we could do one thing or another. For example if you were to move to a city, the crime rates and average house costs would help your decision. Statistics can also be used in something as simple as at McDonalds, whether the company is going to keep a certain meal based on the averages of costumer likes and dislikes on the product. Statistics are a way of simplifying knowledge on the topic so that the information and facts can be read easier.

After reading this article i have learned more about the importance of the role of statistics in our society such as in general information or more in depth topics. Statistics are invloved in most of the things that take apart in our decisions in our everyday life. Whatever buisnesses, textbooks, people and especially the internet tell you, it’s all based on statistcs. However statistics cannot always be 100% reliable and can be made up easily. There can be bad sampeling, misleading statistics or even unfair poll questions that can be minipulated by the asker in order to get the answer they are looking for. Therefore statistics are not always reliable and we should not let them fully take over our decisions, we should take some time to analyze everythng ourselves so we can have a better understanding and see if what other people are saying actually makes sense.

## it10 word

This is the “national research” assignment done in Microsoft word, I chose to do this project based on France. I had a watermark as the flag, shaped into the mapped country. I had all of my pop ups and the title follow the flag colours.

I learned that there is a lot more you can do with Microsoft word than just type essays, how to use it to have it so you can interact with it or set a watermark. I learned how to add a watermark, edit the page colour and texture, and add options so when you click on something a drop down will appear.

I am proud that I was able to get the water mark in because I had trouble removing the background
