# Blog log #3 – Article : How to Be More Resilient

View the article here:

The way of author write this article is fascinating. Mindfulness, meditating, noticing my brain’s activity, thoughts and strengthening my ability to change them if beneficial, have all been very helpful to my being happier, more relaxed and confident in this life. Besides that, I’m surprised the author did not mention the trait of “conscientiousness” – in writing about awareness, control since it is well-known to be associated with all types of good things in life ranging from getting good grades to a stable, happy marriage to better health to career success. Like others, I was also disappointed in the lack of concrete suggestions. What it did make me think of though was whether music, sports, and other programs have the impact they do on disadvantaged youth not only by providing an outlet but by teaching them and having them practice discipline leading to more conscientiousness and self-control. Over the years many people have often called me resilient. Whether it’s bouncing back from the loss of a loved one or overcoming a life obstacle such as cancer, my style is to just do what I have to do and then move on. In actuality, this is not a conscious decision, but rather, it’s a way of living. It’s a choice and a lifestyle.

# Blog Log #2 – Article : Meet The Creator Of Egg That Broke Instagram

View the article here :

I think the way the author wrote this article has little bit positive vision about the egg, so why? This egg is a symbol of the colossal idiocy of social media and the concept of followers. I would have chosen a sheep as the object of this account to show the utter banality of following something or someone you neither know nor care much about. The post call quickly gained worldwide support with hashtags like “click on eggs” or “egg warriors” and it’s viral all social media I use like Facebook, Instagram. Specifically? This egg is neither male, female, gay, straight, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, European, Asian, American. It just basically symbolizes for universal in the entire world. It also gives us a meaningful message through the quotes: “Pressure of social media is getting to me.” a message about mental health that a particular egg transmits. I think it’s interesting and glad to be a part to make it becomes a photo have most liked on Instagram.

# Blog Log #1 – Article: What Lunar New Year Reveals About the World’s Calendars ?

View the article here:

Through the artile we can see how author says about variety between Asians calendar and world’s calendar. Every traditional community cultural activity has two parts: the festival and the festival. With the Lunar New Year, there may be many opinions that the festival is the main because it is still called “Tet” in Vietnam. However, with my the traditional cultural perspective as a Vietnamese people, during the Lunar New Year, the ceremony is focused and implemented more. Although it may have been prepared months ago, December has always been a sprint time. The first and most important thing is to worry about visiting, embellishing and restoring ancestral graves and grandparents to show their affection and regret towards the deceased. Then in the tray of rice in the thirtieth year of the year, how many incense sticks and fruits and spring-day dishes together with the heart of the people are revered, looking forward to the ancestors, the gratitude for the past year and praying for the coming year to be safe and prosperous. Meanwhile, Asian countries, including Vietnam, often use the lunar calendar, which means the new year will start later, between January and February, even in Burma often in April. I think calendar systems are complicated because the number of days in a month or a year is not fixed. The lunar calendar is based on observing the astronomical cycle, while the solar calendar is divided into sets of days similar to the astronomical cycle that’s why between Asian’s calendar and world calendar have big differences.

# Week 18 : Top 5 things I have learned from Pre-Cals11

1/ I learned about function but it’s more deeper than the program I studied in my home country. It was like we just know the way how to solve it faster. But in Pre-Cals11 I can know a lot of diffirent way like Factoring-Complete the Square- Quadractic Formula. Or a lot of diffirent type like parabola, hyperbola, linear,…

2/ Second one, after a lot of test. I just leanred about like I should be careful when i do the test. Also sort the time suitable for myself to complete it well.

3/ Third one, I learned how to share and discusted in group about the problem Ms.Burton teach in class.

4/ Fifth, about Absolute Value, it was like the things i studied before in my country. But for a long time, so i forgot a lot but right now i am studying it again, it reminds me a lot. And also know a lot of faster way to do it

5/ Last one, Before when i was still studying in Vietnam, i hated to do about graphing or drawn something a lot. Because it’s kinda complicated but when i study about graphing here, parabola, linear, asymptotes. It really made me insteresting and changed my mind.

Especially, Pre-Calculus helps me realized a lot of thing like i should more be careful when i do test and dont rush.!

# Week 16 : Application of Rational Equations

This week we learned about application of rational equations.

The key for this part :

First : Read the problem slowly and carefully what is being asked.
Second : Introduce a variable to represent an unknown number
Third : Write an equation the questions gave then solve
And the last one : Write anser in sentence with the unit (km/h,cm..)

Note : less than, up stream (-), greater than or added, down stream (+)

Example :

Myra takes 2 hours to plant 450 flower bulbs. Francis takes 3 hours to plant 525 flower bulbs. Working together, how long should it take them to plant 1500 bulbs?

# Week 15 : Adding and Subtracting Rational Expressions with Monomial Denominators

The strategies for adding and subtracting rational numbers can be used to add and subtarct rational expressions : write the expressions with common denominator.

For the example :

$\frac {2x}{7}\div\frac{5}{3x}$

So the non-permissible value is x = 0

A common denominator is $21x$

$\frac {2x}{7}\div\frac{5}{3x}$

= $\frac {6x^2+35}{21x}$

# Week 14 : Equivalent Rational Expression

This week we started with new chapter about rational expressions and equations.

So we will start with example so i can show you more clear about knowledge of it.

# Week 13 : Reciprocal Linear Functions

This week we learned how to graphing recipropals of Quadratic Function

So let’s see how to graph it.
