Today we had independent maths, I did algebra. I know we have to wait till the end of the year to do algebra, but I WANTED TO BE CHALLENGED!!! It’s actually kind of easy once you get the hang of it. I first read Miss C’s maths dictionary to get the basic information, I then did two tests on maths online, on the first one I got 100% and on the second one I got 80%. I think it is good that I am learning algebra because I will get better understanding when we do it at the end of the year.
What do you think of algebra?
My 2nd test results.
We had independent maths today, I decided to do multiplying to the power of. If you don’t know what that means it looks like this:
It’s where you multipy the big number by as many times as the value of the little number above it. It seems hard but once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty easy. I decided to make a video, but first we had to write a script, at first I thought I could rush it but I realised, I wouldn’t get the right facts! So I spent my time and got a good result. I found it hardest when I had to think up an easier question and harder question, I had to think if it would be good for a beginner or not. Here is a picture of my first go at multiplying to the power of and my script:
My script for my video
My practice at multiplying to the power of
Now I think I should practice it a bit more so I can get accurate. I will do this by practicing this the next independent maths and getting quicker with my multiplying to the power of. And also getting me accurate.
How are you feeling about multiplying to the power of?
Today, I did the nine times tables because I accomplished my eights and decided I should step up a level. I think that I got halfway there but still need to improve. That’s why I’m doing this again next time. Here is my picture of the recount I did.
