Algebra reflective blog post

Looking back on my first week at AHS i am really happy with were i am in the class and in the school. The first goal that i have for myself is do better this year in algebra than i did last year in algebra. The second goal that i have for myself is that I want to play varsity as a sophmore. The third goal that i have for myself is that outside of school i want to be a better person and i want to stop lying so much to myself and to other people.

Parent/teacher confrences fall 2013

Yes the class has met my expectations and is everything i thought it would be and the reason why i signed up for the class
One of the things that is going good for me is watching the videos at home and then taking the quizzes
One of the things that is challenging for me is staying interested in class but i think that's something that i need to work on for myself
There is nothing else that you can do as a teacher except for teach
As a student i just need to pay more attention more in class and pay attention on the homework
Nothing my parents can do except keep pushing me like they are pushing me now.
There is nothing other that my parents should know about except that it is a fun class and i like it.

slopping letters blog post

  1. one line with a undefined slope and two lines with zero slope
  2. two lines with undefined slope and 2 lines with a zero slope
  3. same as #2
  4. one line with a undefined slope and one line with a zero slope
  5. 3 lines with a undefined slope and 4 lines with a zero slope
  6. one line with a zero slope and 1 line with a negative slope and 1 line with a posotive slope
  7. one line with a undefined slope and 1 line with a zero slope
  8. same as #7

To me the X and Y intercepts are were the e line passes through the X line on the graph ( the horizontal line on the graph ) and were the graph line passes through the Y line on the graph ( the virtical line on the graph).


The y intercept is 5

The slope is 1/2 or up 1 and over 2

I will always remember which one is the X intercept because X comes before z in the alphabet and so then that is the one that i look for first.

Equation- y=2x+6

The x intercept in this equation is 2 and the y intercept is 6

I fiund these intercepts because 2 is the x in the equation so that would be the X intercept and 13 in the equation would be the y intercept and thats how i got 13 for the Y intercept.

Today's price of gas in Australia

I divided the Australian cant per gallon by the amount of cents in a Australian dollar.  I got 1.47 i then multiplied that by 3.79 liters which is how many liters are in a gallon of gas.  Then i divided it by 1 liter because that is the amount of gas that we are trying to find I came up with the Answer 5.57.  So this means that in Australia they have to pay 5.57 dollars for 1 gallon of gas.

               I think that watching the video on solving two step equations really helped me understand better how to find x by itself and then divide across to that you can get a more friendly looking equation to solve.
