This analysis is set to discuss a letter written by Gordon Adams. He is a student at Arizona State University and wants to become a lawyer. However, he finds he must take mathematics courses, specifically college algebra, to graduate and move on into law school. He claims that he does
The essay begins with the creation of Algebra in 1545 by doctor Giordano Cardan. It was created to be this way of simplifying problems and Cardan believed it to be an art form that would never go out of style or lose usefulness over time. For the most part he was correct as nearly 500 years later it is still in use, yet for many people it does not simplify anything at all. Cardan was a man of numbers, he gambled and clearly had a great understanding of mathematics, so algebra made sense in his mind but this is not the case for everyone. Math is puzzle that people need to work through to understand, explains Baker, and many people enjoy this aspect of it much like Cardan. Baker himself was a dedicated student who put in week to learn material for a math exam and got a score of 93 for his efforts. Other students, however do not feel as though they can accomplish this. Not all students see the world in numbers and the material they are forced to study is confusing and only gets harder as the course goes on. Fr many student’s algebra

New Latinos in the American Honors Track I was a junior at Brentwood High School, who arrived to the United states from Peru a couple of months ago, and after complaining for three months, Christine Burrows, my guidance counselor, decided to change my Algebra class by a “higher” level math.
This book was certainly one of the more difficult books I have ever read in any scenario ever. To expand upon, it was mostly due to the fact that I, at the time, was completely unfamiliar with the subject of politics. Thus leading into my first point, I did enjoy this book because I was able to learn new aspects of our world. Even more so, I was able to apply them to the real world in this upcoming presidential election. Of course with the good comes the bad, I was simply overwhelmed with information that the book did come off as confusing at many parts. Not to mention the excessive amounts of examples in history that each theme has occurred, did anger me a little bit.
Algebra I is a class taken by 9th and 10th grade students as a requirement towards graduation. Because the depth of knowledge required for the course, some of the9th grade students may be required to take Foundations of Algebra in order to acquire some of the necessary skills needed to master the objectives in Algebra I. therefore by the end of their sophomore year, all students will have taken Algebra I.
Personally I thought this chapter was a headache. I constantly had to read a page and then reread it. A lot of this information I have head from previous psychology classes, but just reading it was harder to understand rather than having an instructor teach it. I pretty much highlighted the whole book because I thought it was all-important.

Belinda Nguyen Professor Becker MTED 394 September 9, 2014 Article #1 The article, “Punch Up Algebra with POWs,” by Mark Pinkerton and Kathryn Shafer begins by stressing the importance of problem solving abilities since it leads to understanding mathematical concepts. The authors stress that students need to be given the opportunity to “reason and make sense of mathematics.” The article examines co-author, Mark Pinkerton’s, yearlong experience that was designed to provide constant problem solving opportunities for his students. (Pinkerton & Shafer, 2013).
The infographic looks at the Common Core State Standards’ stance on algebra, which is taught in the eighth grade. According to the Common Core, students who take algebra can become familiar with more complex math courses as they progress through school, and will have more knowledge when they enter college. However, the infographic points out that childhood brain development tends to plateau in the eighth

The Human Stain Philip Roth Entry 1 Already I can tell that this book is more difficult than most other novels I have read. It seems as though Roth is in favor of using long sentences and complex vocabulary. I sometimes had to reread sentences a few times because there was difficult vocabulary I needed to look up and the sentences were long. I needed to read each sentence piece by piece to make sure I could understand what the author wanted to convey to the reader. Although the text seemed overwhelming when I read the first few pages; once I began reading sentences in increments I could more easily understand the text.
Algebra is a major mathematical strand that has been incorporated across all year levels within the Victorian Curriculum. The many components within and interrelated with algebra and algebraic thinking sets children up, not only for formal algebra in high school, but for life (Reys, et al., 2012). This paper will be addressing some of the main ideas and understandings associated with Algebra. Key skills, strategies and ways of thinking will also be explored along with strategies for teaching the content effectively.
