Learning Intentions: -compare and order fractions using a variety of personal strategies-add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers using models, drawings and symbols-solve problems that involve adding and subtracting fractions-estimate sums and differences of fractions and mixed numbers-communicate about estimation strategies.

This math unit I learned so much, and fractions are still one of my skills. I think fractions are easy. I understand all the concepts but when it comes to learning new ones it has a way of making the easy seem so difficult. From mixed fractions to fraction strips to number lines I learned a lot of new strategies to help me in the future. The funny part about math is that if you struggle with one unit you automatically hate math. But if it is easy for you, you absolutely love math. Right at this moment I love math. On the left I have a picture of my mid-term test and as you can see I scored really well. 19/20 is one of the best tests I have ever done in my grade six seven years. The last question was the hardest to do and I think most students in my class got that question wrong. I am super proud of myself and I am excited for my last fractions test which is I think, on Thursday.

Learning intentions:

- plots points in all 4 quadrants of a Cartesian grid
- identify points of a translated figure in all four quadrants of a Cartesian coordinate system.

Translations, rotations, reflections are all the things I have learned this unit. The three images I have above are some of the worksheets I have completed and as you can see, I got all the questions right on each one of them. I am not just saying that to brag I am just saying that to show you that I learned a lot about this unit and not matter what I understand this area of math. For rotations, we used onion paper and drew the shape on. Then we rotated how much we needs to and then mark it off on the worksheet. The other kind of transformation is the translations. To use translation you use coordinates to move the shape across the page. For example 5 to left and 3 down is used to move the shape according to the coordinates. Last but now least reflections: reflections are very simple; you start with one shape and then using the y or x axis reflection the shape across. Another word for reflecting is flipping because you basically flip the shape across the axis.

]]>This test was pretty easy for me because remembering all the divisibility rules was so easy.

_________________________________________________________________

**DIVISIBILITY RULES! **

2=last digit has to be even

3=all digits added together has to equal a multiple of 3

4=tens digit multiplied by 2 and then the sum of that gets added to the last digit has to equal a multiple of 4

5=last digit has to be a 5 or a 0

6=has to be divisible by 2 and 3

8=hundreds digit multiplied by 4 and the tens digit multiplied by 2 and the sum for both of those sums gets added to the last digit and the sum of all that has to be a multiple of 8

9=same rules like 3 but the sum of all the digits has to equal a multiple of 9

10=the last digit has to end with a 0

The first unit that the grade sevens have this year is the divisibility rules. Right now I know the RULE for 2,3,5,6, 9 and 10 ; plus I know that we will be learning way more.]]>
