### Shapes, Volumes, Surface Areas, Quadrilaterals!

This is a pretty fun unit, I must admit. I really like working with the properties of quadrilaterals for some reason. Ever since we did our Trig unit, I see triangles in everything I do, and now that I know how to do the sine and cosine laws, I find it a lot easier to figure out lengths and angles, and all that fun stuff. I find that probably my strongest skill in math is being able to explain how I did the problem. I may not always be right with my answers, but at least I can back up how I got the answer and what not. I think it is a good skill to have to be able to explain how you did the problem, then when you make a mistake it is much easier to just go back and find out where exactly you made the mistake.

I like working with quadrilaterals. I am a little worried about scale factors, because I wasn't here the day that we worked on it, so I think I'm going to be paying a lot of attention to scale factors when I study.

I thought it was really cool when I won the geometry set a few weeks ago. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bragging, but I knew that Mr.K would come up with some sort of pattern when he chose his number, and that seemed to have paid off.

I don't have the greatest mark in Pre Cal, so I guess i need to work a lot harder, even tho I feel like I have been working REALLY hard already. I'm not really sure how much more effort I can put into it. I am super exhausted, but I am not ready to give up just yet. If you are feeling like you should give up, you shouldn't either. Remember sisyphus! I know I am probably beating his name to death, but I mean it. Don't give up.

Thats it for me now. This is a pretty lengthly post already. I am anxious, nervous, and eager for the test, all at the same time. I hope I do well *crosses fingers*.
