What is Happening right now?
Today, our class started a new math unit to keep on inquiring this amazing mathematical world. The unit we will be working for several weeks will be about unknown numbers which can be also called as Algebra. We are learning algebra not just because to prepare for school tests and to compete with other schools, but to know how to calculate challenging equations in certain situations like buying different things which have various costs.
How am I going to Accomplish this?
The way I'm going to accomplish this is to solve an equation using whole numbers which uses algebraic expressions in my math book and when I start to get comfortable with it, I can move on to challenging ones like fractions, decimals, square roots equation, and etc... For example, if you mastered how to solve 3x + 2, you can move on and solve 1/3x + 2, so on, and so forth.
What things do I need to Learn?
I think I need to learn how to solve an equation which contains division and multiplication operations with unknown numbers to accomplish this unit. The reason is, I already mastered how to solve equations which contains operations like addition and subtraction, so I need to move forward if I want to improve and stay away from my comfort zone.
What kind of Skills do I need to use?
I think I need to use the skill of solving various equations using complementary operations because algebra is all about figuring out the complementary state of other operations and use it to find resolutions. That means that I need to be logical of inquiring through different answers by solving various problems in complementary ways.
For conclusion, I hope I can inquire and learn lots of things about algebra and use it in my life efficiently.
