This week in Mrs.Hoffer class we learned about Volume of different shapes. I’m going to talk about Volume of a Pyramid today because this is the easiest in my opinion. Volume of a pyramid is really simple the B is the area of the base and h is the height of the pyramid. We took notes over this as well as the other shapes. The other shapes I really didn’t understand fully. I understood this shape fully because it’s very basic steps and you don’t have to do millions of steps to find the answer for it. I was really engaged when Mrs.Hoffer was teaching about this. Volume of a Pyramid gave me my confidence back because those other shapes I didn’t understand at all. I know I’ve said it already but Volume of a Pyramid was really easy all you have to do is pay attention and apply yourself. I liked this lesson that Mrs.Hoffer taught us this week.
This week Mrs.Hoffer taught us Surface Area about 4 topics. The first one I’m going to tell you about is Cylinders.
Cylinder formula is easy to solve with its formula. The h stands for height. The r stands for radius.
The next topic I’m going to talk about is Pyramids.
Pyramids was a little difficult to me. The p stands for perimeter. The l stands for lateral area.
The next topic I’m going to talk about is Cones.
Cones was easy to me. Sl stands for Slant Height and r is the radius.
The next topic I’m going to talk about is Prisms.
Prisms was the hardest one to learn in my opinion. The h stands for height. The b stands for Base. The p stands for perimeter.
This week was really a lot but with a great teacher in Mrs.Hoffer I got through it. Mrs.Hoffer did great this week teaching all this information in a short span of time.
This week I learned on my own. I learned about squares. You might think it’s basic but in Geometry you can do a lot of things with a square. A square is a parallelogram that has 4 congruent sides and 4 right angles. It’s one of the easiest shapes you’re going to solve in Geometry.
This week I also taught myself about trapezoids. Mrs.Hoffer taught me about trapezoids already but she wanted us to tune up on it. Trapezoids are a flat shape with 4 straight sides that has a pair of opposite sides parallel. The sides that are parallel are called “bases”. The other sides are “legs” (which may or may not be parallel).
This week in Mrs.Hoffer class we learned about 2 lessons. The first lesson was Angles of a Polygon. Angles of a Polygon was a pretty straight forward lesson. Mrs.Hoffer taught us how to find the angles of different gons. She also taught us how to find the measure of them. Angles of a Polygon was overall an easy lesson to learn. Mrs.Hoffer nailed her Angles of a Polygon lesson. The second lesson Mrs.Hoffer taught us was about Parallelograms. Parallelograms was kinda easy but you have to pay attention on what your doing. We did lots of examples of Parallelograms finding the value of X. I was getting the hang of it after an couple of examples so I’m proud of myself. Parallelograms can challenge you if you don’t pay attention. Mrs.Hoffer came through with her Parallelogram lesson to.
This week instead of telling you about a lesson we learned I’m going to tell you about my spring break. For my spring break I really wanted to just get back to doing football stuff like working out in the weight room. I also wanted to get back to going to the football field and doing my position drills. On Monday & Tuesday I went to track practice and babysitted. On Wednesday & Thursday I woke up at 4:00 A.M. and went to planet fitness and worked at for 2 hours. On Friday instead of working out in the weight room I went to ASU football field and got a great field workout with my friend. On Saturday I hung out with my middle school friends and shot basketball at ASU. On Sunday I just relaxed at home and played my game with my friends. On the last day of Spring Break I was hurt because school was back in effect the next day and I didn’t feel like going back to school. I wish I could’ve hung out with more of my friends during the break but they was busy their selves. That’s how my Spring break went.
This week in Mrs.Hoffer class we learned about Special Segment in a circle. This lesson was an fairly easy one it wasn’t as complex as the past things Mrs.Hoffer taught this 9 weeks. It’s kinda like a math pattern when you’re solving the problems for this lesson. The steps are easy to pick up on and when you’re solving you’re basically using algebra. Everything Mrs.Hoffer has taught us this year all of it correlates to every new lesson and it correlates to this lesson because when solving you’re still subtracting a number on both sides & dividing to get your answer. I’m feeling confident about the test on this lesson. Mrs.Hoffer nailed her lesson this week with 10-7 Special Segment in a Circle.
This week in Mrs.Hoffer class we learned about 10-5 Tangents. This lesson to me is probably the hardest one we’ve learned this year. You really have to know what you are doing when it comes to 10-5 Tangents. I noticed in 10-5 Tangents that all of the things Mrs.Hoffer taught through this 9 weeks & last 9 weeks some of the methods & steps correlate to 10-5 Tangents. The most common one I seen so far is Pythagorean Theorem & the use of algebra. It also uses a little of arc & measure. This week lesson was challenging but with my great Geometry teacher Mrs.Hoffer I got through it.
This week Mrs.Hoffer taught us about Inscribed Angles. Inscribed angles is basically all the stuff Mrs.Hoffer taught us but you have to know what your looking at and know your formulas. It deals with some formulas she taught us in previous lessons with a few new ones. It also has old concepts she has taught us such as right angles. Inscribed angles is simple at times but can get complex at times. It is not as hard if you have a great Geometry teacher like I have. Mrs.Hoffer nailed her lesson this week as usual.
This week in Mrs.Hoffer we learned about Arc & Chords. Arcs & Chords was a little similar to last week lesson but it is not as complex. Arcs & Chords is an easy concept. To do it all you basically have to know is how to identify diameters & radius’s and algebra. You have to identify if the problem your solving is congruent and nine times out of ten it will be and then you just solve doing basic geometry. It will be simple if you know what your looking at and know how to plug in & solve. I understand this lesson way better than last week lesson. Mrs.Hoffer nailed her lesson this week as usual.
