So Long ...

And so we begin where we left off ... don't let the sky be your limit. ;-)

I'm so glad we've had this time together,

Just to have a laugh or learn some math,

Seems we've just got started and before you know it,

Comes the time we have to say, "So Long!"

So long everybody! Watch this space for pointers to new blogs for each of my classes.

Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu, and all those good bye things. ;-)

Well I figured I would BOB about the sequences and the design and measurement "tests". I don't know what it is about Design and measurement but it does not make me nervous, sometimes I do well on it other times I don't. Its pretty easy as long as you know how to find area, perimeter, surface area, etc as well as knowing your metric systems. The only thing I didn't like about the unit is that it was so fast and we never really got a chance to go over much of it as a class until the assessment came about. But it helped!:)
For some reason I understood sequences at the beginning of the unit when we started talking about it lots, but once we got past the the find the nth term I started to get confused. Once that happened I started to question my abilities in the unit I understood it but didn't at the same time I didn't. Maybe because its the end of the year and eberythings getting"CRAZY", with all the different assignments and stress about the provincials. Well we'll see what happens On the provincial I really want to do well.

Exam time!

Your provincial exam is this week. I was thinking on your taking the test and remembering a day some 5 years ago when I was to write an extremely important exam.

I was mindful to get some sleep just prior to the exam and hoping that you will too for this reason:

The bottom line: Teens need 9.25 hours of sleep per night
In experiments done at Harvard Medical School and Trent University in Canada, students go through a battery of tests and then sleep various lengths of time to determine how sleep affects learning. What these tests show is that the brain consolidates and practices what is learned during the day after the students (or adults, for that matter) go to sleep. Parents always intuitively knew that sleep helped learning, but few knew that learning actually continues to take place while a person is asleep. That means sleep after a lesson is learned is as important as getting a good night's rest before a test or exam.

At the risk of sounding "mom-ish", have you taken this into consideration in your preparation to be your very best for your test??

On my test day, I was just about to leave for the testing center when I asked my husband to wish me luck. "No," he said, "I won't do that." I was crestfallen. I felt like I needed one last boost before the "big" one.

Then he continued, "You don't need luck. You're smart. You're prepared. You're good. I believe in you. Go out there and just do it!!!! I'll be here when you get back."

It's time for me to pass that forward to you! You don't need luck. You're smart. You're good. You're well prepared (thanks to your hard work and Mr. K). I believe in you. Go out there and just do it!!!!

B o B

I would say that Design and Measurement was my least favorite unit, there's just so much stuffs to do to come up with the answers. We really have to understand what the questions are asking from us before we start answering them, the same with the Sequences unit, we also have to read the questions carefully. Sometimes I get confused on making the formulas that we have to put in our calculator.
I hope our tests are short and not confusing. Good Luck on the test and the upcoming provincial and final exam...~(_8^(])


Design and measurments unit is haarrdd. well for me it is. i can never be a carpenter person. so i dont really know how ill do in this test! hopefully i pass =s. and the sequences unit is okay. sometimes it's easy sometimes it's hard. the hardest part for me is getting started on the question trying to find the sequence. but hopefully i do goood!


I gues it's time to BOB! Well, about the design and measurement unit, i wan't having any difficulties with the problems having just the basic objects, but when we were given complex problems, I got confused because they are too complicated. About sequences, at first I can't understand on how to do the problems because I missed a class. Anyway, as we go along, I am kind of getting the stuff that we were doing. The fractals look cool. they look nice and it's also interesting that we can see and find sequences aruond us. Good luck in the test! =)


Well, just in case, here is a BOB. So here we are again, at another end of a unit(s). Haha, well design and measurement, I don't really like much. Even though it's pretty simple, there's just so much to do, and the long word problems always tend to confuse me. It wasn't really a unit, hahah because we didn't spend too many classes on it, so I feel that I'm still very weak in that area. I wish we could've done more design and measurement problems. Sequences, I like this unit a lot better than design and measurement. Mr. K said that we could be asked two types of sequences question (like the fish question or the squares question) I feel more confident with the "fish type" questions. I hope I do good on the test, and I hope we all pass!! Goodluck everyone!


OMG, i can't blieve that is units are over. I think i am really scaried about these unit's test because we only studied these unit for a short VERY SHORT period of time. I don't think we did enough examples, but again thats what i think, well maybe that was becuase i had to do my provincial and get less class time than everyone else. I think i am really worried about sequences becuase i didn't even go through this unit. I am really worried about this test and the provincial but whatever everything happens for a reason, i hope the cheat sheet will come in hand on the test if not, im screwed. AHHHAHHHHH!!!!


hey guys final our last two tests all thats left is the exam. I would have to say the design and measurement was my favorite unit, I for the most part get whats going on. As for sequences i didn't like it so much. I am still a little confused on how to use the y= screen on the calculator, other than that I think I understand the rest. Good luck to everyone on the two tests today.

Just incase, but yeah , i dont like design and measurements. i think it was horrible lol , but i like Sequences. thats ok, because its all about patterns. i really hope i pass tho, im on a roll term so far. i think ?!?!. but yeha good luck everyone


Well just to make sure, I am going to B.O.B before our tests.

Design and measurement. Well that was a bit more difficult then i thought. I mean it wasn't hard if you figured out what was going on, it was just figuring out what was going on.

Sequences was fun. I hope i do well on this one. I had fun with this one, it was one of the few units that I could shout out answers and be 100% sure I was saying the right thing. I liked this unit.

Good luck on the TESTS tomarrow....... T_T TESTS!


If you can't read the picture CLICK on them and a larger one will open in a new window!

Don't forget that we have our design and measurment test tomarrow morning and our sequence test tomarrow afternoon!

next scribe is ~*~ Just_in ~*~

BoB; Ivy and measurements....I think if giving me enough time to calculate everything I can actually do it, and again the secrets behind the sentences and questions that is twisting my pretty not cool, but I will try to handle it. hehe. I like calculating stuff to figure out what costs or what so ever because it makes me feel smart...hahaha but nooot.

Sequences...I actually like this unit....and I just figured out missing all of this last year was absolutely screwed me up....or let me re-phrase that missing out all of the units in applied math screwed me up....well well...hopefully I can pass both of this unit..because I DON"T LIKE GOING BACK TO HIGH SCHOOL. hehee....anywasysss goodluckkk everyyyyboooody.
Im sorry guys if didn't post my scribe on tuesday's class, I'll post it tomorrow..............

NEXT SCRIBE IS Nadiya.......
