FOIL stands for: First term in each bracket Outside terms Inside terms Last term in each bracket Foiling is just one method you can use to to multiply polynomials. You can also use Area Diagrams and the distributive property… So for example if we have: (x+4)(x+7) using the foil method you would first multiply the First term in each bracket which in…

# I learned about LateX Coding

This week in math I learned about LateX coding. LateX coding is used for math and when I am for example posting on my blog instead of having 2/3 I can actually have a fraction by adding the proper code. you can do this for exponents, mixed fractions, regular fractions, you can also change the color and size also this…

# What I Learned This Week In Math

This week in math I learned how to find the base area, surface area and the volume of a right triangular prism. In this example the height of the base of the triangle wasn’t given to us so we had to figure that out before we could discover the area of the base. To find out the height I used…

# What I learned this week

This week I learned how to use a micro meter. By tightening the micrometer on a object you can measure it using cm and mm.

# What I learned in math this week

I learned to solve negative exponents, by turning them into positive exponents and then solving them by using the exponent laws.

# LCM/GCF

The new way I found to find LCM/GCF is involving listing all the multiples of the number. So, if you are trying to find the LCM of 100 and 102 the first step would be to list out the multiples of 100 starting with 100 * 1. Now since we are dealing with big numbers we can see using calculator…
