Basically, writing about math has helped me learn and understand things more about math. Math is my least favorite subject, but I still enjoy learning different things about. There's so many different topics in math, it's really incredible once you think about it. It's all one big picture connecting to every thing else in life. For example, this math blog is about how writing about math has helped me. It has helped me because it allowed me to remember all the things I already learned about or currently still learning about. What I'm trying to say that I think writing these math blogs are important because they refresh my memory on the things I have already learned. ]]>

Overcoming the challenge of solving word problems hasn't really been "achieved." I still have times when I really get stuck on word problems, but most of the time I do figure it out. It just takes me awhile to think about it, and it really gives my brain a tickle. Most of the word problems that is given to us for homework or class work involves solving for an unknown amount of something. It is also usually put into an equation, and also, in most cases, we have to create our own formula. If the word problem had a diagram to show the problem, that wouldn't be too difficult for me. But if the problem just had 90% of words and 10% of numbers, it would really be challenging for me. I learned that working hard and trying your best will pay off at the end. I feel so relieved when I finally get the answer to a word problem I have been working on for hours! ]]>

Another example of how these two subjects are connected involve solving things in math and science. In science, you use a lot of math to figure out scientific problems. So that's why it is important to understand math when doing science, especially in chemistry.]]>

I have seen most negative numbers in equations. For example, while I was learning how to add and subtract negative integers, I learned that you can't subtract negative integers. When you subtract negative integers, you must change the operation to addition, and change the integer into a positive one. ]]>

Before it was simplified, it was difficult to solve right? Now that it's simplified, you can easily solve it now. 2x=22. You divide 2 on both sides. So that means, you would put a line beneath 2x and 22 and have 2 under it. The line represents division. Once you do that, you are left with x and the answer. If you did this correctly, you should have gotten 11 as "x" because two times 11 equals 22. ]]>

The method I prefer the most is just finding out what place number is in. I think it is very simple, and easy to use. I have been using that method ever since I learned it in elementary school. It is also not that confusing either once you understand your decimal places. It is an effcient way to convert the

]]>For example, in the fraction 22/33, the top number will be divided by the bottom number. Another way you make a fraction into a decimal is making it into a percent first, then into a decimal. I prefer the dividing method because I'm very use to it and I have been using it ever since elementary. It is really easy and simple to remember.

Another reason why it would be right to use percentages to plan the purchase of food because it isn't difficult math. Who would want to go through a lot of stress just to plan for food? Percentages are divided into correct parts, and I think it would be perfect for food because there is a lot of seperating and sectioning. ]]>

You can find out the circumference from using two measurements, the radius or the diameter. The diameter would be easier to use because it takes a fewer steps and it gets you the same answer if you use the radius. The formula for finding the circumference is c=3.14xD. In this case, the diameter would be 6 feet. Plug in the numbers then times by Pi. The formula for the radius is c=2x3.14xR. Plug in the numbers and use the formula. ]]>

Why is Pi special, and what's so awesome about it? Well, if you're a math lover, I think you would know all about Pi, but for me, I don't. I think Pi is special and it's been used for a while now because it helps us solve certain problems, such as the one I stated in the 1st paragraph. I'm not certain of this, but I also think that Pi is the circumference of a circl
