This unit was fun at times, but at others, it could get pretty tedious. I've noticed that when I understand and know what to do to solve a problem, it's fun. When I don't understand something well, I hate it! But I guess having things that are challenging are good for you. Math isn't supposed to be easy, good math questions are hard. And you learn more from your mistakes.

I like finding areas, surface areas, and volumes of objects because I'm familiar with the formulas and I know how and when to use them. What I found difficult about geometry was about the properties in quadrilaterals. I usually would be lost when we talk about doubling or tripling lengths or area's. I understand it, but not very well. What I'm really concerned about is when we have to prove that a shape is a parallelogram, rectangle, square, etc... I'm not very good at showing my work in words.

Geometry was a good unit. We didn't spend a lot of time on it, I guess it's because the class picked up very fast. We also have been working on it in our previous classes. I remember working on areas and surface areas in junior high. I've learned that what we've done in the past in math, is just like a puzzle piece. We learn more and more each grade. Tomorrow we have a test on geometry. I hope all of you will do well.

Yours truly,
