### I'm blogging on blogging x)

**Long division of polynomials**... ahh. I

*really*don't like it. Integers and all that sort of stuff isn't my thing. :) This is the topic I will be talking about for my `

*blogging on blogging*`. I've chosen to do "

*A comment about something that you found very hard to understand but now you get it! Describe what sparked that "moment of clarity" and what it felt like*."

Every single second when Mr. K was going over long division of polynomials, I would get

*lost*and

*confused*and had

*what was going on.*

**no clue***.*

**At first I thought his pace was just too fast for me to keep up with**I would understand

**x^2 + 27x + 42 divided by x + 3**or something, but then I would get lost after the first subtraction because

*that's where I went wrong and had troubles with*.

Then we received questions like

**x^3 + 9x + 3 divided by x + 5**and then all of a sudden we had to add in

**0x^2**in there for reasons that I was unable to catch.. (I think this is why we have `scribes` to blog about class ... ehe, might've missed that too ^_^) and

**I,**

**hands down, had no ideaa how to solve.**

But I had an after class talk and got a little extra help from Mr. K, and with a little bit of practicing I finally was able to have a

*`moment of clarity`*and actually understand the part of "

**- (25x + 5)**" in the long division process, or why we had to add "

**0x^2**".

I didn't really have a `spark` of clarity, it kind of just gradually came into understanding. Now I feel much better about math class, as if a weight was lifted from my shoulders, mind/worries.

**Plain RELIEVED.**

**:) And this is my comment!**
