*Mackenzie's Fourth Growing Post*

Question#1: We've learned how to write algebraic equations in the form of mx + b = y. Convert these two sentances into algebraic equations using the above formula.

Sentance 1: Scott is 2 years older than Donald who turns 12 on June 16th 2006. Write this sentance in the format of mx + b = y, then convert it into an expression which allows us to figure out the age of Scott.
D + S = A
11 + 2 = 13


Sentance 2: Elizabeth has $200 in her savings account. She makes $40 every two weeks babysitting for her next door neighbours. If Elizabeth saves all of her money solve for how much money she will have in one year.
200 + 40n =


Question 2: Creation. You need to create two questions for your classmates that cover diffrent concepts (ex: T-Charts, patterns, equations, graphs etc.) that you have learned in this unit on algebra. You then need to show how to sole the questions. Your mark will be based upon the level of question's difficulty, and the effort put into your answere.
1.10a - 15 = 5a + 10
first you have to get all the variables on 1 side
10a - 5a = 15 + 10
Now you have to add and subtract
5a = 25
Finially you have to get the variable by it's self
5a = 25
/5 /5 a = 5

To Figure out the next two diagrams you need to know how many chocolate chips are being added on to the cookie. There are four more chocolate chips being added on.

Question 3: Reflection. You need to look back at the chart that we filled out during the first day of the unit. This is the chart where you coloured a topic red, yellow or green. You now need to pick one concept that you coloured yellow or red and reflect in words what new skill/idea that you have learned on this topic.

On my chart I have coloured CAN I CREATE A T-CHART FOR MY PATTERN? in red. During this unit in algebra I can now make a T-Chart for my pattern.

MR.REECE MY DIAGRAM WON'T UPLOAD!!!!!!

Question 4: Preparing for the final exam. You need to think about the yeat that has past in mathematics and decide which topic is your weakest, and what you need to learn during class review in order to prepare yourself for the finial exam. It is not enough to say fractions, instead pick your weakest area of fractions, say the subtraction of fractions, and give an example of what you don't under stand.
My weakest topic in math is algebra. In algebra I am still having trouble with making equations from problems. An example of what I am having trouble with is the one we have on this growing post. I DON'T GET IT!!!!

Your mark is 22/25. You didn't finish sentence 2. As well you didn't show how you figured out the number of chocolate chips for cookies 4 and 5. Don;t worry that the pictures didn't upload, you didn't lose any marks
