This year in Algebra 2 class I have learn some very interesting and important topics. Throughout this past school year I have grown and learned how to use these newly learned skills and my understanding of algebra is now complete. In math class this year, I believe I did fairly well and received almost got all A’s. I think I passed this class is because math in general comes easy to me. I only studied in the beginning of the year, as the latter part of the year came much easier. Partially why I did well is because of the fact; I enjoy building and constructing things. When I was younger I played with Lego’s all the time, but now since I grown up I build remote control cars and trucks and once in a blue moon I work on real cars. Through building these objects I connect with math more and more. In math this year I learned many interesting topics. I learned about scientific notation and useful it is and when to use it. I also learned about arithmetic sequences. Arithmetic sequences can be used to help solve patterns. People who work in the stock market use arithmetic sequences to predict changes in the econmony. I also learned about permutations and combinations and how to us them and what they are used for in the real world. In addition, I learned how to solve logarithmic equations. I learned about logarithmic growth and decay and how they relate to the real world. People use logarithms to calculate the deflation of a product. Scientists can use logarithms to calculate how long it will take to grow flowers with Miracle-Gro. Engineers use logarithms to figure out how much steel will hold a certain amount of weight. Engineers need to use algebra to solve equations, if they don’t their product could be defective. The subject I struggle the most was graphing rational equations, solving rational equations and most of chapter 9. I studied and did the chapter 9 spring break packet, but I struggled with that a little too. Just in general I do not like
