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".
