Essential Question of Mathematics: How can I make sense of and impact the world around me using math?

One example of “how I can make sense of and impact the world around me using math” is calculating standard deviation to tell how spread out from the average a group of data is. This can be used to check many data sets which are used in marketing, salaries, schools, and basically anything that includes data.

I am most proud of my work on writing linear equations in y=mx+b form given a description, graph or table. When we first started working on this skill, I was overwhelmed and thought it was very confusing. After practicing it a lot (and failing a lot) I finally got it and felt good about myself.

My biggest challenge was determining correlation coefficient because I didn’t really pay attention when we were taking notes on it, so I didn’t understand it at all. I went into a couple math classes not knowing what it was and messed up a lot of questions because of it. After looking back at the slides, I realized it was quite simple, and I could do it with ease.

I have shown the most growth in persevering with logic because on my first test, I tried a couple times on questions I didn’t get, but I just gave up after that. On my most recent test, I really tried to understand the questions I didn’t get and spent a lot of time on them. When I finally got the answer I felt like I really understood the skill on a deeper level and could do it again.
