In Mrs. Pope's pre-algebra class, we are learning how to prepare ourselves for real algebra by learning all the basic steps in pre-algebra. Some things we learn in this class are how to solve equations with variables on both sides, multiplying and dividing fractions, etc. And also, Mrs. Pope is the best pre-algebra teacher ever!

## Necklace Task

This assignment wasn't really a project, but it was close to one. For this task, we had to solve all the problems and then present them in front of the class with our partner. We also had to do another task but we chose to present this one because we felt like it was more simple. Well, anyway, I didn't really have a problem with it. It was simple and easy and it was just another simple presentation. I was use to presenting.

From this project, I learned how to solve the problems in the task. Some of the problems were really hard, but my partner and I worked hard on the problem and tried solving all of them. At the end, we did figure it out and we did well. After that, we had to present all the problems. Since the task was digital, my partner and I took snapshots of the problems and inserted them into a Google Docs presentation. Instead of typing in the answers, we explained the answers orally. Take a look at the questions that we had to answer and present about.

## Algebraic Equations

In this lesson, we learned how to solve algebraic equations. Algebraic equations are equations that have one or more variables. I learned how to get the answer to an algebraic equation by using the opposite operation of the operation that is being used. For example, 6h=18 is an algebraic equation. In order to get the answer, you have to divide the 6 and 18 by 6 because that is the opposite operation of multiplication. Once you get the answer, you could replace it with the variable to see if it makes sense.

I had also learned this in 6th grade, so this was like a review for me. When I first learned it, I thought it would be difficult for me, but it wasn't really all that hard. These kind of math problems are actually kind of fun to do.
