Division reflection

Division reflection

Tell why you think it is important to be able to divide numbers. For what kind of problems do you need to use division?
I think it's important to know division because many questions involve division. To know multiplication properly you have to understand division. Fractions, decimals and percentages all involve division. This is important to understand because its a important part of math and a lot more. What happens if you have 5 friends over and 25 cookies, if you want each friend to get the same amount of cookies you have to know how to divide.

Tell what part of this unit was the most difficult for you and why. Describe what you did to overcome any difficulties you had.
The most difficult part of this unit for me was when we learned long division. It was really fun once you could use it but while learning it's a bit difficult. I found this hardest to learn because we had to take the next number down and I got confused with partial quotients. I learned that you subtract and add but the long division just use's subtraction. There were many ways for me to fix it but I used the most common one. practice more and stay focused.

Parable of the Sower

Religion reflection

Last week you read the story of the Sower and the Seed. Summarize the story including what the story is about, who are the people in the story, what lessons did they learn, and how you can connect what you have learned to your life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The parable of the sower~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When our teachers teach they teach in ways that are simple to understand for they wish we do well, but when Jesus taught he taught in parables. The story I will write to you below is one of the parables Jesus told.

Jesus sat by a lake with lots of crowds surrounding him. So He got on a boat and head of so that people would have more space. Then he told them a parable saying, "A farmer went out to sow his seeds. As he was scattering the seeds some fell along the path and the birds came and ate the seeds, some fell along rocky places where it did not have much soil the seeds sprang up easily because the soil was shallow but when the sun came up the plants were scorched and they withered because they did not have a root, others fell among thorns and when sprouting up where chocked, and last there is the seed that falls among good soil and sprouts producing a seed a hundred, sixty or thirty times as much as it."

After Jesus was done telling the story to his people his disciples asked him what this meant, Jesus told them this,

"When anyone hears the parable of the sower it is a guide to men. The seeds that fell along the path is like the man who hears the word of god but does not understand it, doing so the evil one snatches the man away, The seeds that feel along the shallow soil is like the man who hears god's word understands it but does nothing about it, then there is the seed that fell along the thorn, this is like the man who hears about gods word understands it and does something about it but the problems of his life make him forget the word of god, last there is the man who hears the word of god and does something about it, this is the seed that fell among good soil and producing another."

When Jesus was done the men finally understood the parable of the sower.

The story shows the people we are, to try and show us how to become like the man who hears about gods word understands it and does something about it. We have all heard about gods word now or before and now learning this parable we must change. The lesson the men listening to Jesus story learnt is the same we are trying to accomplish now. it is to change our self's to be more a better person. Everyone has done something wrong and we can all relate, I have been like the person who hears god's word understands, does something about it but then gets distracted. now I am trying to change to for I am not perfect and I will never be. But I will try to be as perfect as possible as me.

Factor Math

Describe what you liked about playing factor captor?
I liked playing factor captor because it was a multiplication game and it thought us the factors for numbers. We would get points for the higher factors you can use, that helped because the higher factors like 23 are harder to know the multiplication facts for which we will need later on. Which brings me to my next point.

Explain how making a array might help someone find factors for a number?
If your number was 84 of course you don't have the 22 times table memorized so maybe you could do a 42* 2 and that would equal 84 and you would get 44 points. So now you can go higher and see if you can make any higher number by using the array strategy.

Look back through journal pages 2-28. What activity or lesson did you enjoy most in this unit and what did you learn from it?
I liked doing square numbers the most because we got to do to the power of and we got to learn expanded notation. I learned that like 7 to the power of 2 is not 7 *2, it is 7*7 that is also what I liked about it. this was a unit but we also did some games about it. Another activity and game i liked was learning the disability rules because it always takes me so long to find out if this is divisible by that and now I know. I learned that there is another way to divide and it was really fun and it was not that hard.

It's learning about learning time

my best subject is art, I like art because in art you need to visualize it you can't do art in you're head. I don't work well with mental things. I love art also because it gives me freedom I can express myself and show people emotion. That's what art is about.
In art I like soft music in the background. I am so interested in learning about art. I now know about shades and tints. I feel happy doing it. I also know about self portraits, It's fun. Even thought I'm great at art it does not mean I can't learn. Thinking about art makes me understand how much more I CAN learn.
Art helps me get better at so much more like math and reading, this is because I'm so interested in art that I want to explore further. I want to relate and I want to find out. somewhere along this exploring process I relate to other subjects like reading. I think of art as a way for me to make reading fun, more fun, and even more fun. I tend to get board in all subject except art. I find ways, loopholes, opportunity, to do art and i do but when its time for something else "Their is no way I'm doing this for long".
