Math in My Life
This year in Algebra 2 class I have learn some very interesting and important topics. Throughout this past school year I have grown and learned how to use these newly learned skills and my understanding of algebra is now complete. In math class this year, I believe I did fairly well and received almost got all A’s. I think I passed this class is because math in general comes easy to me. I only studied in the beginning of the year, as the latter part of the year came much easier. Partially why I did well is because of the fact; I enjoy building and constructing things. When I was younger I played with Lego’s all the time, but now since I grown up I build remote control cars and trucks and once in a blue moon I work on real cars. Through building these objects I connect with math more and more. In math this year I learned many interesting topics. I learned about scientific notation and useful it is and when to use it. I also learned about arithmetic sequences. Arithmetic sequences can be used to help solve patterns. People who work in the stock market use arithmetic sequences to predict changes in the econmony. I also learned about permutations and combinations and how to us them and what they are used for in the real world. In addition, I learned how to solve logarithmic equations. I learned about logarithmic growth and decay and how they relate to the real world. People use logarithms to calculate the deflation of a product. Scientists can use logarithms to calculate how long it will take to grow flowers with Miracle-Gro. Engineers use logarithms to figure out how much steel will hold a certain amount of weight. Engineers need to use algebra to solve equations, if they don’t their product could be defective. The subject I struggle the most was graphing rational equations, solving rational equations and most of chapter 9. I studied and did the chapter 9 spring break packet, but I struggled with that a little too. Just in general I do not like

    My eleventh grade year was arduous. Not only was I concerned about passing five Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GGT), but math III was complex. math III was full of foreign concepts and equations. Overtime, I grew excited about learning new concepts in math III. My teacher was a great influence upon me. He regularly encouraged me to work hard. With his support and endless determination I was committed to succeeding. A few weeks went by and class was going great. We were learning how to plot linear functions, factor polynomials, and how to find missing sides on a right triangle. I was very consistent with studying and reviewing past assignments. I knew if I did not study I would not pass the tests. As the end of the semester grew near, I grew concerned about the final exam partly because I had forgotten a few of the earlier lessons in the class.…

    In elementary the simple rubric math was relatively easy for me. I thought that during my last year in elementary, math would be no problem for me. Well, that was not the case. Sixth grade came and math became my worst nightmare. Once I passed sixth grade, seventh was no better and let’s not mention eight grade. In my freshman year in high school I finally was tired of barley passing math so I made it my goal to pass algebra 1 with an A. I first began to check out math books for dummies at my local library, and was more than determined to learn this. My hard work towards the end of my freshman year paid off and I ended the year with a grade higher than a 95. My teacher was impress with my efforts that he suggested that I double up on math and graduate with 6 math credits instead of the required four or five if…
