Today in math class, we were given sheets of papers that had 10 algebra questions on them. We had to only do 8 of those. For today's scribe, I'll help you with 4 questions of the 8, so you will only have to do four.
1. A certain number plus 26 equals 51. What is the number?
The number is __
Let N = number
The number is 25
2. Three more than twice a number is nineteen. Find the number.
The number is ___
Let N = number
The number is 8.
3. Six times a certain number minus eight is forty. What is the number?
The number is __
Let N = number
The number is 8.
4. Terry has a certain amount of money and Rick has three times as much. If together they have $2.60, how much did each boy have?
They each had ___ dollars/cents.
Let N = Dollars/Cents
This one is different, so we must first identify what we know about each person.
Rick: 3N(We know that he has 3 times as much as Terry)
Terry: N (We don't know how much Terry has or anything about it)
They each had $0.65 cents.
That is all for today, I don't think we had any other homework.
Today in Class we did computer Stuff. So I'm going to show you step by step where to do and what to do.
- Electronic Portfolios
- First you go to http://spmath81708.blogspot.com/
- Than at the top their should be something saying E-Portfolios
- Click On E - Portfolio than at the left side - bar click on Math
- Than make a new Tab (Open a new internet)
- Than do the same on the first 2 step but now you scroll down and click on room 17
- Than you click your name
- Click on Edit this Page
- Now you Copy down what you need to do on Math.
- (example: Parent Information Heading 2 ) So you just type in Parent Information in as Heading 2
- After you done all of it...Well you click on Save.
- Presentation - Group (This 1 only one of your Group member do this)
- First you go to Google Homepage
- Next you log in to your Google Account
- Than you go My Account
- Than Scroll down to Docs
- When your on Docs at the left it should say New than an Arrow pointing down
- Click on the down button than click on Presentation
- Than on your main Heading put down your group name
- On the Second Heading put 2 minutes to make a diffrence
- Ones you put that, than you go and put down people that are in your group
- When your done all that you click Shared than type in your Email and your group's email.
- Than click enter/done
That's all the things you need to do. Sorry if I miss any step.

Hi Guys, so now I want to come home. There was an earthquake. D; A very little one here in Lima, but in Ica and Pisco it was worse. I´m having fun , except today because of well the earthquake. It already stopped though. Lol. So I miss everyone! Okay I better go just in case anything else happens. I MISS YOU GUUUYS!
Talk to you soon.
Here is my first example from page 45, letter C.
C. Three desks and a bookcase together weigh 157 lb. The bookcase weighs 34 lb. How much does each desk weigh?
First you have to write a simple sentence like: Each desk weigh ____.
To complete this sentence, you have to figure out the equation for this problem solving, and answer it then verify to see if it's correct.
3x + 34=157
3x + 34=157-34
3x + 34=157
To finish it you will have to complete the sentence which is: Each desk weigh 41 lb.
Here is my next example. This example is also from page 45, letter O.
O. Oshgosh would like to buy a new pair of skates for $115. So far he has saved $40. If he earns $7.50 per hour, how many hours must he work until he can buy the skates?
For this kind of algebraic problem solving, we will do the same thing which is to write a simple sentence. The sentence would be: Oshgosh will have to work for ___ hours to buy the skates.
To complete this sentence you will have to figure out the equation for this algebraic problem solving, answer it and then verify to see if it's correct.
Now you will have to solve the algebraic equation.
7.50x + 40=115
7.50x + 40=115-40
7.50x + 40=115
To finish this equation you will have to complete the sentence for this algebraic problem solving. The sentence will be: Oshgosh will have to work for 10 hours to buy the skates.
Here is my last example. This example is also from page 45, letter T.
T. Mr. Piper's plumbing needed repairs. The plumber charged $98 for parts plus $45 per hour for labor. If the bill totaled $458, how many hour of labor wee required?
To answer this algebraic problem solving, you will have to figure out what the equation will be for this, and complete a sentence. The sentence will be: ___ hours of labor were required. Also, as always you will have to answer it and verify to see if it's right or wrong.
45x + 98=458
45x + 98=458-98
Verify (Always verify)
45x + 98=458
Now, to finish off this algebraic problem solving, you will have to complete the sentence for this. The sentence will be: 8 hours of labor were required.
REMEMBER TO STUDY ALGEBRAIC PROBLEM SOLVING FOR THE MATH TEST ON MONDAY! (IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, JUST ASK MR. H).
Isolate the variable
These are some of the following questions that i am going to help you with:
3n+8-8=20-8 (add the opposites and what you do to one side you so to the other)
-The slashes that you see in the questions are dividing symbols.

Hey again! Lol , well its fun here! Tomorrow morning im leaving for Ica for about a week and a couple days I guess. I might not be able to go on the computer that much because my grandma doesnt havent one , but my cousin does . So whenever I go to my cousins ill go on.
So I havent really said much about Peru have I? Well I will.
Here in Lima they have a lot of the same fast food resturants as Winnipeg , like KFC , Burger King , McDonalds , Pizza Hut and they also had Payless Shoe Source here which I never would of guessed!

Well i miss you guys a lot. Ill talk to you soon!
Ok so the first one is 2n=6 and im going to show you this question in algebra tiles
so here's what the question looks like in algebra tiles
the 2nd question is N=3
and heres what it looks like in algebra tiles
and heres one more question without using algebra tiles
11n = 77
11n = 77
77 = 77
4) 25 = -12+n
12+37 = 25
25 = 25
n+(+6) -6 = 15 -6
n = 9
9+6 = 15
n/ -5 = 15
-5n/-5 = 15(-5)
n = -75
what if the N was negative???!!
don't sweat! Ill show you how to figure it out ! ^_^
So Mr. Harbeck told us we can NOT have a negative N, so we have to change it right.
here is the question:
(5) -n/-5= 15 (5)
NOTE: YOU CANT HAVE A NEGATIVE N!
so what do we? add a negative one to both sides. Like this.
(1) -n =75 (-1)
Mr Harbeck asked me to show you how to divide with fractions.
Okay so here's the question :
so we all know that n= +1 or 1 right. so just re-write the question to look like this:
so now it way easy! okay now let's solve it!
Yeah! we did it !
Okay our homework was all of page 39, all of page 40 and all of page 41 (in our purple booklet so 50 question all together I suggest you do them because we will be reviewing or homework on Monday morning!)
NOTE: TEST ON TUESDAY NOT ON MONDAY!
Sorry for any mistakes!")
I chose Kimmy R to be the next scribe ..... ^_^
Well today in class , i really dont get what we did .. lol , but ill try to explain it.
Question # 2.
Question # 2. : Algebra Tiles
n / 4 = 3
n / 5 = 15
I pick ... hmm , CAMILLE ! XD
Well it was okay for me because sometimes i do it while my Auntie is at work. I felt really proud of my self because i made my Auntie son stop crying.
Yes, anyone can make a difference just by making other people feel happy or proud of you.
Well shoveling their front yard got me pretty cold, but then it didn't really matter to me because I'm use to it. I felt very proud of my self because i shoveled someone front yard.
Yes, i think one person make a difference because if you did something good for someone they would do the same for others.
Me and my cousin junelle. I didn't want to take a picture with a stranger soo.. yea
PAYING IT FORWARD.
for paying it forward i went bowling with my cousins and family. I handed out a pamphlet and 2 home made cookies to strangers who worked at the bowling alley. My pamphlet said " Little things can make a BIG difference". I told the people who worked there to pay it forward. They took it the wrong way because i said "pay it forward like asking for money or something", but i told them to keep their money and just give it to a shelter or to poor people, or kids ineed. They said they would. The reason why my cousins, family and I went bowling was because it was mine and my aunties birthday the next day and it was already school so we couldn't celebrate it. After my birthday party with my family was over they gave me money for a present almost 80$. Instead i decided that i didn't really need anything so i put most of the money in a donation jar in the bowling place. I felt really good because some of my money can be a good help to other people. Also in my uncles church we save a lot of money every year helping the kids in the Philippines its called "ga-wad kaling-a" gaaa- waaaad-kaaa-liiing - AH ''. Its for kids my age who dont have enough money to go to school and also babies who are really sick and dont have money to pay for medicine
The pictures that where taking could not be uploaded today but will be uploaded soon.
here is a video i made on youtube about what we did : D
it will be used with alot of different animations from a game that I play so enjoy.
if this doesnt work here is the link to it
uhmm so yea :D
Over the Christmas Break, I decided to donate some glasses to the African kids. It all started a few days before Christmas day, I went with my mom to her work. In her office, there was a box with tons of prescription glasses in it. I asked my mom why they were in the box and she tld me they were for the kids in Africa who need glasses. When I got home, I thought about my Pay It Forward and searched my house for some glasses that my brother or parents don't use anymore. The next day, I went with mom again to her work, and put 2 from my brother and 2 from my parents! While I was there, I met some of my mom's friends and told them that I donated glasses and they should pay it forward too. ONE person CAN make a difference. In a few weeks, the box of glasses will be shipped to the kids in Africa who need them the most.
To pay it forward I shoveled my grandma and grandpa's drive way. I decided on doing that because I slept over there. One more thing that I did for this assignment was give money to my uncle. Below, you will see the proof. The proof is a picture.
So now you see what I have done. Try this idea just for fun. Maybe you will see the beauty that we have created. If you carry on this thing we call pay it forward.
Hello and if you don't now me I'm Carlo. And I did this project called "Pay it Forward". Well at the holidays I didn't do anything that special, so somewhere close to New Years, December 31 to be exact. I did something super special asome in my house, then my cousins. Well I had to babysit my cousins.
Surprisingly unaccepted happened, my cousins came to the house and jumped on me literally. While there mom is somewhere in the outdoor world doing something. While I babysat them they were playing with there own and Nintendo DS. Just for a short moment of time they actually escaped my clutches , that means the ran away somewhere in the house doing whatever they do normally, now if you are wondering what the do normally is to fight, yes fight. I had to separate them but i just got bamboozled by the little one not the older one of the brothers but the young one. After that little brawl I gave something free to them like a DS game or whatever plea shay thing they wanted. So I gave it to them. Now that's how generous I am. For the following hours my sisters were video taping them as they cause havoc around the house, eventually we got videos. If you look down at this paragraph there is one of the videos we captured. Now I felt super special good when I baby sat for them. My cousins reacted surprisingly enjoyed on what I did to them. I asked them to pay it forward but they didn't know what I meant. So when we had the celebration of New Years in my other cousins house I said these to all my relatives in there to pay it forward as I explained slowly. And there was About 20 relatives in there. So they tried to to the things I said.
Now you see the videos on how I did well, the results on how I took care of them is I had trouble on it, but if I rate it to easy-insane I'd say normal. And can one person make a difference, I'd say yes. If I can do this some other person can do it. Yeah, that's all I got now I'm done
I decided to shovel my cousin’s driveway because on a cold snowy night they phoned my mom and said they were going somewhere. I realized that they were going on a holiday so I said to myself, "I'm going to shovel their yard tomorrow." And that’s exactly what I did. The next morning I put on my shorts, jogging pants, undershirt, t-shirt, 2 sweaters, a jacket, two pairs of socks and shoes. When I walked outside I was so cold because I have just learned that it snowed a lot early in the morning. I went to their back driveway and started to shovel. When I finished the driveway I decided to shovel their walkway too so I did. When I have shoveled everything I went back to my house. When I got inside my dad asked me to shovel our own driveway and that is what I did. When my cousins got home they phoned us and asked who shoveled and I said me and I said “Pay it Forward please!” and they said that they would try to. I was very happy.
As you can see from this picture that i actually did this and I was very, very cold. Well I hope that I have encouraged anyone to "Pay it forward." I have to go now. Peace Out dudes and dudettes.
After I shoveled the sidewalk and front yard, I went inside. She thanked me and I asked if she could try to do a kindness for another person, and I told her about the Pay It Forward project. She told me she will try to do an act of kindness for someone she knows and tell that person to do one for another, and so on. After that, I felt glad that she did not have to shovel all of that snow herself.
I believe that one person, can make a difference in the world. All they have to do is do an act of kindness, and pass it on, and keep going. It starts to affect more, and more people in a good way, it's still making a difference. As long as the acts of kindness keep passing on, it will soon make a big, big difference in the world. That's how I see it.
On the last day of school, before winter break all the grade 8 students watched a movie called "Pay It Forward" about doing random acts of kindness for people. We were given an assignment to do a random act of kindness ourselves, there were many possibilities.
For my random act of kindness I shoveled the backyard for my dad. My dad said he was going to go shovel the backyard so i offered to do it myself and he was surprised because when he asks me to do it i say that it's to cold! I told him i would do it because i had to Pay It Forward. He asked me what pay it forward was and i told him about our assignment, I said because i was shoveling then he should pay it forward somehow too and he offered me money, but i didn't take it. I told him to do something nice for someone else. I thought it was really cold outside so I dressed up really warm so I was fine. It took be about an half an hour to finish the shoveling, which isn't that long, but i still did it because my dad has done a lot!
What I ended up doing was I made cards with Abby, Arielle, Carrie, Gelli, Arielle, and Tracy. The cards we made were about paying it forward, explaining what pay it forward is, why we are doing it, and how others can help. We all participated and equally shared the work by thinking, writing, drawing, and coloring.
On the front of each card said, "Pay it Forward" and to read before thinking to even throw it out or something similar. If you think about it, do you think you'd read something handmade made by anonymous people in the mail? Would you throw it out without even reading it? I honestly probably wouldn't take the time to read it, but maybe if it said something like, Please read before throwing out." or "Before you even think of throwing this out, please read it." I'd probably read it. We also drew pictures on the front of the cards like flowers, cartoons, and forward symbols like the ones on a VCR. In the inside of the cards basically covered the who, what, when, where, why, and how. We also drew diagrams of one person paying it forward to three other people, each of the three paying it forward to three other people, and so on. We showed how it can spread quickly to many people and around the world. We also attached a lollipop to each of the cards to show our appreciation to pay it forward. We put the cards into mailboxes of unknown people.
I felt that I have done a good deed by spreading the message to others. I also felt like watching someone open their door and read what we had left in their mailbox and how they would react. I think the people whom I have given it to would have probably had a happy feeling reading the card and had a smile on their face wondering who had made the cards. I'm hoping that the people who received the cards actually read it and don't tend on throwing it out. I hope that they also pay it forward to help us spread the message.
Do I think that one person can make a difference? I know someone can make difference, it may not be a huge difference like to stop global warming but everyone counts. Even if that difference is very little, it will continue to grow no matter how small it may be. It is almost like a tree, it'll start out small and it will take time for it to grow, but in the end it is a large beautiful tree, and all the waiting really paid off. I think if you really believe in yourself that you can make a difference in our world and that you never give up, you will make a difference. No matter who you are. Age? Size? Culture? Ethnicity? That all doesn't matter, what matters is what is in you! Every little difference can make a HUGE DIFFERENCE! EVERY PERSON COUNTS!
