Math 2 Description
This page is meant for people to see what we went through in this years math class, to show our 3 different portfolios, and to explain our growth in this class throughout the year, inside and beyond the class. As a class this year, I could most definitely say that we focused more on collaboration in group work, also on making mistakes. This class created an environment in which making mistakes was a good thing instead of a bad thing. We embraced them as something to grow from, instead of laughing and making fun of people who made mistakes, we helped them learn what they did wrong, and sometimes we would even notice that we made that mistake too. I feel that that is a very important lesson in life, because off you just go through life being afraid to make any mistakes, then you won't be able to learn how to get better. Group work was also a big part in this class because without good group work, we wouldn't be able to get any help or work done. This year in math for me was a really good year for group work, because even if I got people that I didn't really talk to outside of class, we got along, helped each other, and got a lot of work done. We also focused on learning quadratics, similarities, and probabilities. We made a portfolio on each one.

We started the year in math by learning algebra. This portfolio is about the unit in which we learned quadratics. We learned how to factor completely, graphing quadratics, quadratic equation, and parabolas. We gave a little explanation about every worksheet that really helped us learn the concept of the lesson.
After spending a unit learning algebra, we started learning statistics. In this portfolio I explain everything we learned in the probability portfolio.
In this unit we started learning geometry. This portfolio is everything we learned in about similarities in shapes, how to make a shape bigger or smaller, theorems, mirror triangles, and many more.
My experience in math class as a 10th grader was really good. I really liked the environment which the class had, we weren't afraid to make mistakes, and I made a lot new friends who i didn't even talk to before. Some of my weaknesses in math class that got better was speaking up in class, I feel like I improved in many ways not only academically, but also personally in ways that helped the environment in class easier, and better for my classmates and me.
