Our lesson in math now makes me so interested about it. Honestly, for the first time, I understood our lesson and I was amazed that I was'nt struggling anymore!!! I really payed attention to it because I really wanted to learn. And now, here I'am scribing and sharing all the things that I know to find the "B" in a triangle.</span></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"><span style="color:#663300;">To be able to find the "B", you</span> <em><span style="color:#666600;">MUST</span></em> <span style="color:#663300;">know the</span> <em><span style="color:#666600;">FORMULA</span><span style="color:#663300;"> </span></em><span style="color:#663300;">first:</span></div><div align="justify"></div><div align="justify"></div><p></p><p><br /><br /></p><p><br /><br /></p><p></p><p><a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank"><img style="WIDTH: 922px; HEIGHT: 554px" height="570" alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic" src="http://i9.tinypic.com/6gumi4p.jpg" width="954" border="0" /></a> </p><p><span style="color:#663300;">After knowing the formula, you now have to FIND the "B". Look at the triangle below. It shows that "B" is ?.</span> </p><p><span style="color:#660000;">*Please get a piece of looseleaf. Try to find the "B" in the picture given below.</span> </p><p></p><p></p><p><br /><br /><br /><a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank"><img alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic" src="http://i3.tinypic.com/5z5wo4k.jpg" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><br /><span style="color:#663300;">Good job for you if you did it right!!! But if you don't, its alright, just try your best next time. Here is the proper way of substituting. You may copy if you wish.</span></p><p></p><p><span style="color:#330000;"></span><br /></p><p><br /><br /><br /><a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank"><img alt="Image and video hosting by TinyPic" src="http://i7.tinypic.com/52xw082.jpg" border="0" /></a><br /><br /><br /><span style="color:#663300;">So, that means that "B" is equals to 17.3 cm.</span> </p><p></p><p><span style="color:#333300;">Thank you for participating and hopefully that you learned something.

For you to be able to find the missing side which is A, you must know the formula first:<br /><img src="http://img03.picoodle.com/img/img03/8/5/10/f_formulaam_88556b7.png" /><br /><br />2.) To begin with, you must know what the given numbers are:<br /><img src="http://img02.picoodle.com/img/img02/8/5/10/f_abc1m_b310a26.png" /><br />Now you know that:<br />(Hypotenuse) C = 10<br />(Base) B = 6<br /><strong>(Altitude) A = ?</strong><br /><br />3.) Once you've gathered information, we begin to substitute:<br /><img src="http://img02.picoodle.com/img/img02/8/5/10/f_abc2m_8411228.png" /><br /><br />--<br />Hope this helped you though it's short. It's really easy! But you MUST ALWAYS know what the formulas are for you to be able to substitute all the way to the answer. Refer to your foldable paper, it's a good source for reviews!<br /><br />P/S: Comments are more than welcome!

There isn't enough information. Let's go to the question #2. </span><br /><br /><br /><span style="color:#00cccc;">2. Make a table to show the results of your investigation.</span><br /><br /><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_PmPO2Wlbqo8/RiVSrIS74-I/AAAAAAAAAAs/WMlXPFZnyh4/s1600-h/scribepost+-+03.bmp"><img id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5054537057708008418" style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_PmPO2Wlbqo8/RiVSrIS74-I/AAAAAAAAAAs/WMlXPFZnyh4/s400/scribepost+-+03.bmp" border="0" /></a><br /><br />This is question 2.

You could also see that the <span style="color:#ff6600;">y row</span> <span style="color:#ff6600;">starts at 6</span>, <span style="color:#ff6600;">getting larger by 3 and</span> the <span style="color:#ff6600;">multiples of 3</span>. This could be the <span style="color:#33cc00;">answer for the question 3</span>, which says to describe the patterns found in each row.<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#6633ff;">3. Describe the patterns found in each row.</span><br /><br /><span style="color:#ffcc00;">x row<br />- starts at 1<br />- increases by 1<br />- numerical order<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#ff6600;">y row<br />- starts at 6<br />- increases by 3<br />- multiples of 3<br /></span><br />Now, it's time to explain question 3B.<br /><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">3B. Describe why the patterns increase the way that they do.<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#ffff00;">- The pattern increases by 3 because you are adding 3 legos to the edge to create the next figure.<br /></span><br />My explanation is exactly the same as my answer for the question 3B.<br /><br /><span style="color:#66cccc;">4. Describe the relationship between the two columns.</span><br /><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">- y is larger</span><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">- you have to add (+) or multiply (x)</span><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">- three times (figure #) plus 3</span><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;">- 3n + 3</span><br /><span style="color:#33cc00;"></span><br /><br />Here is my T chart.<br /><br /><img id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5054550037099176978" style="CURSOR: hand" alt="" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_PmPO2Wlbqo8/RiVeeoS75BI/AAAAAAAAABE/ys5IlgeAezc/s200/scribepost+-+05.bmp" border="0" /><br /><br /><span style="color:#ff6666;">4C.

It help me to practice in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, LCD , equivalent fraction and etc. Learning this thing could be apply to the lessons we will be learning in grade 9 and i am glad that they teach me this kind of topic.<br /><br />THE UNPROJECT:<br /><br />1. Did you like the unproject.<br /><span style="color:#ff0000;">-</span> I enjoyed doing the unproject, because I get to work with a partner.<br /><br />2. Did the unproject make you work harder than you usually would?<br /><span style="color:#3333ff;">-</span> Well some of the question we didn't get it, but me and my partner we try our best to finish our work<br /><br />3. What did you like best about the unproject?<br /><span style="color:#ccccff;">-</span> By doing the designing thing.. just like the glowing words on the wiki.<br /><br />4. What would you change about the next unproject?<br /><span style="color:#339999;">-</span> I would put videos, and make it better.<br /><br />5. Did the unproject make you learn more because you were doing a different type of project.<br /><span style="color:#999900;">-</span> I learn a lot of thing about fraction just like the reducing fraction and the converting fraction... before I don't know how to do the converting and reducing but now I really know how to do it and I am proud to myself.<br /><br />F-i-e-lakumaz7noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4163332443145340643.post-58060337867416872962007-04-10T15:33:00.000-05:002007-04-12T11:05:37.228-05:00Rina's Bob<span style="font-family:arial;"><span style="color: rgb(255, 102, 102);"><span style="color: rgb(255, 102, 0);">In this unit, the easiest thing that I learned was adding and subtracting fractions. It was easy for me to understand and I got some help from my friends. The purple book helped me on how to add, subtract, devide and mulitply fractions. The hardest thing that I learned in this unit was deviding fractions and a little bit of multiplication.

I sort of get fractions but the word problems I don't really understand. In word problems I get confused because I think its either multiplying, dividing, adding, or subtracting. The most easiest thing I learned this unit about fractions is multiplying. I think multiplying is the easiest, because I like it when I cross reduction it. My goal this year is to practice my word problems.<br /><br /><span style="color: rgb(0, 153, 0);"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">The Unproject</span><br /><span style="color: rgb(0, 102, 0);"> </span></span></span><span style="color: rgb(204, 51, 204);"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);"><span style="color: rgb(204, 51, 204);"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);"><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 255);"><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);"><span style="color: rgb(0, 102, 0);">For the Unproject my partner was Rivka.

Though I did find word problems a little challenging. First we learned about all the types of fractions. Out of the four there are, proper, improper, mixed, equivalent and lowest common denominator. We made a big paper on these topics, mine is completed. Then we learned to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions. I found this all a piece of cake too. To help us we had to do pages on the purple booklet for homework or practise. I always did my homework, that's why I get it. On the purple booklet I was stumped on a few word problems but I got them after. I just get mixed up when it comes to dividing or multiplying in a word problem.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Unproject<br /></span>Well I had the bestest partner ever, CJ. We sang a song about topic #1. Which is about fractions. I think we did very well and we deserve a good mark. We did all the background information you need to know and our song is awsome, though I made like one major mistake and Mr. Harbeck said we could cut and paste stuff to delete it but nope, so you can laugh at my mistake because so do I. What I liked best about this project was practising singing the song. I had so much laughs with CJ. And I'll admit this project was a little harder than most of our assignments and CJ and I finished the night before so yea... and if I had to change anything about the next project I would change the marking rubric. SO THAT SLACKERS CAN'T GET GOOD MARKS!! Because it ain't fair! Different type of project definately and it did make me learn more because I had to know about it a whole lot to help with the lyrics. And did I like this project?

I know most of the things you have to do like converting fractions and reducing fractions. I had some trouble with this fraction unit but I would of been able to understand everything if I actully tried during school, not being lazy and pay more attention during class. The things that helped me learn this unit was by doing my purple book and my big paper.<br /><br /><br />I wasn't a big fan on doing the unassighnment. Actully, im not even done doing my project so it's late right now and I guess I lost a quite a bit of marks. The only thing i liked about while doing the unassighnment was making up the questions. This project was harder than all the others we've done so far because i decided to work alone without a partner so I had to do all of the work myself.<br /><br /><br /><br />*michael alohhaa*mikenoreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4163332443145340643.post-8461082855288363732007-04-09T22:51:00.000-05:002007-04-10T08:15:52.334-05:00Paola's bob (fractions)fractions for me is no prob!since i studied it in my elementary years. But when the word problem came in the scene(test), this is what makes me sooooo!!confused!I don't know how to solve it since there is no mathematical signs on it, instead they used words. so i focused on working in word problem. i practice it by answering the <span style="color: rgb(204, 51, 204);">PURPLE BOOKLET! <span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);"><br /><span style="color: rgb(204, 51, 204);">PURPLE BOOKLET <span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">is a big help to me.

I also enjoyed watching and seeing the unprojects of the other students from my class and from different class. The personal background is like doing a scribe because you put all the things you've learned in fractions and putting slides. I think that in this way of making projects, it would be easy and a big help for students like me to learn the topic but in different way that students are not only learning but also enjoying.</span><br /></span></span></span></span></span>paolarosehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05697632532276777893noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4163332443145340643.post-17875227206566955022007-04-09T21:49:00.000-05:002007-04-10T12:18:32.496-05:00JOREL'S BOB<span style="color:#3333ff;">Fraction is kind of easy to me though I don't like it because you need to take so many step at some problems. Sometimes you need to convert, or reduce and stuff. But its still easy for me. But sometimes some of the question confuses me especially the word problems. I don't like word problems. OH YEAH we did an unproject.</span><br /><span style="color:#3333ff;"></span><br /><span style="color:#3333ff;">I don't really like the unproject because I don't use wikispaces much. I really work hard on this harder than usual. The one I like best about the unproject is the one where I searched the definitions of some words like fractions, proper fractions, mixed number, etc. I guess next time I'll put the picture with the definition rather than putting it in a seperate link. I didn't really learn anything more when I look at the unproject because I already know all of them.

Well, there was one thing i liked and it was making the pictures, but putting the info wasnt all the great either. The unproject sure did make me work harder than all other assignments we did, but thanks to jake being there and helping me, he cut down the work. <br /><br />What i liked best about the unproject was like i said, making the pictures because it helped me to use other programs to make the diagrams for our unproject. What i would change about the next unproject, is that i would choose a different selection for the choices we had to choose from. Like a video for example, it would be a great experience ;P. The unproject didn't really make me learn more about fractions because i was doing a different type of project because i think fractions are easy because my grade 6 teacher taught us well on fractions and i carried it to grade 7 and 8, so i think doing this unproject didn't really make me learn more, but it made me work harder.<br /><br />tgeeehh boy this is SHAWNshawn .noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4163332443145340643.post-76606486778941697512007-04-09T18:38:00.000-05:002007-04-29T19:00:38.879-05:00Andrea's Fractions B.O.B. =)<center><span style="font-family:verdana;"><img src="http://img01.picoodle.com/img/img01/8/4/29/f_bobfracm_1f6d1e6.png" /></span></center><p><span style="font-family:verdana;"><em><span style="color:#339999;"><strong>Fractions. </strong></span></em><span style="color:#006600;"><span style="color:#006600;"><span style="color:#003300;">When I first heard that we're going to talk about fractions in Math Class, I first thought it's going to be easy. Because fractions are somewhat introduced to regular students at like, Grade 3. But half way through the lesson, I found some things complicated, like the</span> <span style="color:#339999;">borrowing part</span>.</span></span></span></p><p><br /><span style="color:#006600;"><span style="font-family:verdana;"><img src="http://img01.picoodle.com/img/img01/8/4/29/f_fracborrowim_347de20.png" /></span><span style="font-family:verdana;"> </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:verdana;color:#006600;"><span style="color:#003300;">But of course, by listening attentively, the borrowing part is as easy as pie. It's just hard when you first look at it. And I find</span> <span style="color:#339999;">word problems</span> <span style="color:#003300;">really tricky. Thanks to the purple booklet! I practiced solving word problems in different types: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The best part for me is the </span><span style="color:#339999;">multiplying and dividing fractions</span>. <span style="color:#003300;">The things is, back in my elementary days, <u>finding the LCD</u> and <u>cross-reductions</u> became really hard for me. But now, I find it really easy and somehow very interesting. </span></span></p><p><span style="font-family:Verdana;"></span></p><p><span style="font-family:Verdana;color:#339999;"><strong><em></em></strong></span></p><p><span style="font-family:Verdana;color:#339999;"><strong><em>The Unproject.</em></strong><span style="color:#006600;"><strong><em> </em></strong></span><span style="color:#003300;">I liked (and I still do!) the idea of the unproject because I think it's a very unique and smart way to show our knowledge and creativity. Different students picked different kinds of projects. Some did a movie, a song, and an animation. Depends on how they want their own abilities to be seen. I, myself, did a quiz<strong> </strong>that would be good for reviewing. When Mr. Harbeck announced that we're going to have unprojects, I was really weirded/freaked out because I thought it's really, really hard to do. But when I tried, I got really busy.</span><span style="color:#006600;"> <span style="color:#339999;">Just so when I realized that the unproject isn't really that hard (I just had it inside my head), you just have to give it <u>your all</u>.</span> </span><span style="color:#003300;">It really got me all worked up because I was thinking that I was on my own, and I have nobody to rely on but myself. Though I actually didn't start the unproject until Spring Break's over (lazy bum!). But I'm pretty surprised that it turned out a lot better than I've expected :) </span><span style="color:#339999;">But next time, I'll try to have my unproject done before the night of the due date, so I won't have to rush or stay up all night doing the unproject. </span></span><br /></p><p><span style="color:#006600;"><span style="font-family:verdana;color:#003300;">See for yourselves!

I did learn how to add and subtract same denominators in grade 5 but not multiplying or dividing or even finding the LCD. I got the adding and subtracting right away. I also understood the multiplying and dividing too, I just didn't know when to do in a word problem. I still get confused while doing some word problems. The Purple book helped me practice the four types of fractions as well as finding the L.C.D. I mostly had my work done in the purple book when it was assigned, Otherwise my work was always completed.<br /><br /><strong>The UnAssignment:</strong><br />I really had a fun time while doing my <strong>UnAssignment</strong>. My sister helped me out and we had many laughs together while filming the video. It definatly took a lot of time (9-11 hours)but in the end I'm happy how it came out. Although I didn't actually start the project until <strong>2 days</strong> before the project was actually due (I have a very bad procrastination problem hehe) It still came along. It took a lot of takes before it was right. The <strong>UnProject </strong>didn;t make me work harder than I usually work because when it comes to projects and test I always work and study really, really hard. (Although, I still can't beat Jake) The thing that I liked best about the <strong>UnProject </strong>was spending time with my sister. It also kept the information fresh in my head. I kept repeating all of the information and now I don't think I'd be able to ever forget this stuff. The thing/s I would change about the next <strong>UnProject </strong>would me be starting the project sooner so I wouldn't be rushing to do it. I would also have thought out everything before filming because it wasted some time. The <strong>UnProject</strong> was definatly different than any other project that I've ever done before. So... Of course I learned a lot more than a normal project would teach me. Basicaly I learned how to use <strong>Windows Movie Maker</strong> and I got experiance in acting like <strong>Ellen DeGeneres </strong>and<strong> </strong><strong>Oprah. </strong>Also maybe someday I'll have my own talkshow. Well actually no, I don't think I'd want one!<br /><br />Thanks Mr. Harbeck and Mr. Hanley for teaching me some really cool stuff and also giving me a chance to do such a unique project such as the <strong>UnAssignment</strong>!!!</span><br /><span style="color:#009900;"></span><br /><strong><span style="color:#006600;">You can see my UnAssignment by clicking on the following link!!!</span></strong><br /><a href="http://spfractions.wikispaces.com/Janna+8-17+and+Vanessa+8-73">http://spfractions.wikispaces.com/Janna+8-17+and+Vanessa+8-73</a><br /><br />-------------------------------------------<span style="color:#cc33cc;">Janna K.</span>-------------------------------------------Jannanoreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4163332443145340643.post-75138529954201100762007-04-09T17:25:00.000-05:002007-04-10T08:15:52.341-05:00John's BOB<span style="font-family:trebuchet ms;color:#000066;">In this unit we learned about fractions, how to add, divide, multiply and subtract fractions. I learned how to convert improper to mixed fractions and how to convert mixed to improper fractions. After that Mr. Hanley gave us the purple booklet to work on. We have to finish every page as we go on to our lessons. It help me to understand fractions more and learned a lot. I still get confused on word problems because of that there is no symbol just words and numbers.

Our teacher taught us about the adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing of fractions. I already thought that it won't be as easy as some thinks and that it will take me a long time in order to understand the topic. I felt so s__pid especially when my teacher is explaining and I can't even answer her questions or even participate because I don't know how to do the thing that she wants me to do. I want to ask her if she can help me to explain the topic but everytime that I will go to her room, I'm really scared. Maybe because I always think that she will get mad, shout at me and will say that I don't understand it because I wasn't paying attention. So what I did is that I study very hard. But still, I did not got it and still confused.</span><br /></span><span style="color:#6600cc;"><span style="color:#000099;"><span style="font-size:100%;">Ever since, I got scared in math subject especially when we study the fractions. But when I was in 1st year(grade 7), my teacher helped me a lot. She taught me not to be scared in this subject because it's not as scary and so confusing as what I think. She said that I should have not take it very seriously or else, I wouldn't be able to see and feel how fun it is. I really followed her advice. And yes!!! It really worked!!!</span><br /></span><span style="color:#3333ff;"><span style="font-size:100%;">So now, I'm not scared no more!!! I sometimes struggle but I don't give up. </span><br /></span><span style="font-size:100%;">I really learned a lot and it even clarified the things that I don't understand. I now learned how to divide the fraction.</span></span><span style="font-size:100%;"><span style="color:#6600cc;"> I learned how to multiply the fraction as well as to add and subtract it. Mr. Harbeck gave us some advices how to solve it easily. Whenever he teaches us, happy/funny moments cannot be missed. That's why I felt so alive especially when his subject was our first thing in the morning.</span> <strong><span style="color:#ff0000;">Adding Fractions</span></strong> <span style="color:#6600cc;">isn't that hard. First step is to get the</span> <span style="color:#009900;">"COMMON DENOMINATOR"</span> <span style="color:#6600cc;">and when you already get it, you can now solve it. But you have to make sure that the answer that you're going to encircle is the</span><span style="color:#009900;"> "LOWEST TERM"</span><span style="color:#000099;">.</span> <span style="color:#6600cc;">Same thing with</span> <span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>Subtracting Fractions</strong></span><span style="color:#000000;">. <span style="color:#6600cc;">You have to make sure that the denominators are the same. Subtract both numerators. But if the first numerator is smaller than the second denominator, you have to do the borrowing and then subtract it. In</span> <span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>Multiplying Fractions</strong></span><span style="color:#6600cc;">, you don't have to get the common denominator. You just have to multiply the numerator and next is the denominator. When you get the answer, you must simplify it. In</span> <span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>Dividing Fractions</strong></span></span><span style="color:#6600cc;">, you don't even have to find the common denominator but you may notice that it is a little bit different from the others. The first step is to inverse the second fraction. It is now reciprocal. The second step is to multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second. And the last step is to simplify the fraction. </span></span><br /><span style="color:#333399;"><span style="font-size:100%;">Now, I know that I can answer any fraction problems without hesitation.

We study about all kinds of fraction. Also we learned how to convert improper fraction to mixed fraction and mixed fraction. But these are just the beginning. I don't really know that fraction is easy. When Mr. Harbeck and Mr. Hanley started the adding fraction, I thought that I can't do it. When they teach us about it, it became easy to me. Also the mutiplying, subracting, dividing are easy. We learn about the LCD, cross reducing, reciprocals, and many more. The pink sheet really help in this unit. I discover a lot of things because of it. Thank to Mr. Harbeck we learn a lot of things about fraction.<br /><br />I wish the next unit is easy too.<br /></span><br /><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms;font-size:85%;color:#ff0000;">unassignment project</span><br /><span style="font-family:trebuchet ms;font-size:85%;color:#ff0000;"><br />1 Did you like the unproject.<br />yes it was so exciting<br />2 Did the unproject make you work harder than you usually would?<br />yes I really work than ever before.<br /><br />3 What did you like best about the unproject?<br />explaining the background impormation.<br /><br />4 What would you change about the next unproject?<br />creation.<br />5 Did the unproject make you learn more because you were doing a different type of project<br />yes because I research and discover more.<br /><br />-Ian "CHESTER" Abad</span><br /></span>ice_23noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4163332443145340643.post-2937491263646192062007-04-08T22:28:00.000-05:002007-04-10T08:15:40.149-05:00Marielle's BOB .<span style="font-family:arial;font-size:85%;color:#330099;">The fraction unit was sort of easy, yet sort of complicating at some points. What I found easy was making fractions equivalent to each other & multiplying them. It was easy for me because you only had to multiply the numerators by each other then the denominators. The part that confused me the most was the word problems because I sometimes forget when to multiply/ divide/ add/ or subtract. Right now, I sort of know how to do it, but I still need some help at times. During this unit, what helped me the most was using cross reduction. It helps a lot because it makes numbers easier to multiply. </span><br /><span style="font-family:arial;font-size:85%;color:#330099;"><br />Also in math, we did an unassignment. As a partner, I chose Angelic M. It didn’t really take us as long as we thought it would. For the unproject, we did a song about fractions. It didn’t really make me work harder as I usually would; the fact that I procrastinate a lot. What I liked best about doing this unproject was trying to sing the song with Angelic because we had non stop laughs & a lot of fun. What I would change in the next unproject is to maybe find a way to make our background info more creative and to work more on our song and see if we can make it better. I don’t really think that doing this unproject made me learn more because the only thing we had to do here was explain what fractions are. Basically, they are parts of a whole. However, if we were to talk more in detail, we would talk about the different types and how to solve/convert them; which is pretty easy. I guess the only thing that this made me learn more about was using different computer programs to edit and record our song & different websites to make our images and put them into slideshows.</span><br /><span style="font-family:Arial;font-size:85%;"></span><br /><span style="font-family:Arial;font-size:85%;color:#009900;">+ muuuuriellers .8-17</span>marielleD_noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4163332443145340643.post-8846062853712420232007-04-08T21:53:00.000-05:002007-04-10T08:15:40.151-05:00BOB ; Fractions<span style="color:#333333;">In this fraction unit, things weren't really difficult. As we were learning about the unit, there were some things that refreshed my memory and things that fixed some problems that I were having with no questions asked. One thing that gave me trouble were word problems. It confused me on when to multiply or divide on the problems. I still need some work on that and hope to find a more easier way to solve them. Also I did have trouble on drawing the pictures to compare on the problems, but when Mr. Harbeck explained it over and over again, started making sense to me.<br /></span><br /><span style="color:#333333;">On the un-project assignment, my partner was Jaymie. We made a slideshow on explaining "What Are Fractions??" First we made some pictures to explain our background information. Then we brainstormed some things on how to make our slide show perfect. It took us a lot of time to put it all together and it wasn't easy. We used every reference that would help us to put it all together.<br /><br />I hope the next unit will be easy and not so confusing.<br /><br />- Amy L.</span>yinlynoreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4163332443145340643.post-55626090279842450142007-04-08T20:11:00.000-05:002007-04-10T08:15:52.372-05:00kristian's BOB<span style="color:#000099;">What I learnedfrom our lesson about "fraction" are. The definition of fraction, the different kinds of fraction which Proper, Improper, Mixed, Equivalent fraction. I learned that the denominator tells how many of a whole is being divided while the numerator gives part of a whole. I also learned how to cconvert mixed fraction into improper</span><span style="color:#000099;"> fraction and convering improper fraction to mixed fraction. I also learned how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fraction. I learned that adding fraction, only the numerator is being added/subtracted while the denominator remain the same.</span><br /><span style="color:#000099;"></span><br /><span style="color:#000099;">I hope I gonna get higher marks in this term...</span>kristiannoreply@blogger.com0
