For my 7th grade class trip we all went to "Lake Compounce". Lake Compounce was located in California. We left at 8:30.It took like a half hour for us too pull off. While we was waiting there we was all getting comfortable and talking about what we was going to do when we get there. On my way over there I was laying down listening to music. We was watching Petter Pan but I couldn't hear it so i didn't pay it any mind. The bus ride was like 2 and a half hours. I felt sick. I felt sick because I didn't eat before I felt.

Once I went into the park we walked to some ride my friend wanted to get on.I was very hype and I just wanted to get on everything. In my group was, Ada, Joshua, Jonas, Alex, Sekouba, Gri, Lind, Johanna, and Javior. We was with Mr.Osei. The first ride I got on was the "WildCat". I got on that ride w. my friend Ada. I went on a lot of rides but I don't really know what its called. My favorite ride was the "ZOOMERANG". That was my favorite ride because it went fast, backwards and made loops. I didn't like that was the "DownTown". I hated that I went very high and just dropped. On one of the rides my friend started crying,I was laughing at her. Mr.Osei only went on one ride with me. We went on the "WildCat" all together. I didn't order anything to eat because everyone was saying that the food was nasty.

The last ride I went on was the "Boulder Dash". Besides getting rides we was walking around. On the bus ride going back was good because I fell too sleep. Some people was watching Batman.I like that I am tall enough too get on anything. I would love to go back.

Why do I have to think about a career now?

I am thinking about career day right now because it helps for my future and what I'm going to need to start working on and go to college for. I think this project will be very helpful because it give us a head start about what I'm gonna be working on when i get older. I think this is real important because theres people right now thats having trouble finding jobs and when I get old enough to work in certain places its gonna be more easier for me. I really wanna be a photographer when i get older because I love taking pictures and taking pictures of people, places and things.

Center 3- MOSTER!

Look at today's Do Now, do you feel racism still exists? In what ways does racism exists? Have you ever experienced racism? In what ways have you experienced racism? Does Steve Harmon experience Racism?

Do you think there is racism in our country's court system? Can a minority get a fair trial? Why or why not? Do you think Steve Harmon will get a fair trial? Why? Why Not? How do you think O'Brien feels about the Jury they selected for Steve's trail?

Why do you feel some people think that our country's court systems are racist? Why do you feel there are more black men in jail than college?

In some ways i feel that racism still exists because people call each other "nigga" and people might say they hate black people or white people, depending on whats the color of your skin. I haven't experienced racism before. Yes, Steve have experienced racism because he is the only black person in the court and everybody else is white.

I think that racism is in our country's court system because when you go in you mainly see white people. No, because you can't relate to the people because the white people get it easy. No, because he is black.I think that O'Brien know that they are not going to win because hes young and black.

White people are doing better then black and Hispanics .

how name-Calling effects people?

Write a 3 paragraph blog about how name-calling affects people.
How powerful is the language that we use? Why do people call each other names? How often do you call people names? Do you think about how the person might feel when you call them the name? How often do you see others being called name? Is there anyone in your school who is teased for being Gay? How do you think people feel when they are constantly teased?
Why does Petrocelli call Steve a "Monster"? What metaphors do you compare people to when you name call? How does Steve feel about being called a monster? What does he doe after he is called a monster? Do you think Steve feels like a monster? Do you think Steve is a monster? Do you think he is innocent or guilty?
Do you think the jury sees Steve as a monster? If you were on the jury would you think Steve was a monster? Why? why not? Why did Steve title his book monster?

Everybody get teased about different kind of things. They curse to them and call them all types of names. They talk about how they look, act and all kind of different things. Mostly all the time people is making somebody cry and someone is fighting all because of the name calling. I know some boy who is always getting teased because he acts gay and everybody talks about him. I be feeling bad for people but then again I do the same just for the fun of it.

When Petrocelli called Steve a monster I think she meant it like he disregard the rights of others. I know she didn't mean that he really looks like a monster. When I name call i usually call them all types of things but I think Steve really liked the name Monster because he kept rewriting it. I don't think he is a monster because he would've did other bad things too but i don't really think that he is guilty and another person did that.

I don't think he is a monster because I think he is innocent and he is young. He titled his monster because he feels like a monster in jail and hes lonely and all around him is nothing but criminals.

Think & DIscuss.

Aim: How do we solve proportions by using cross products?

1. Explain how the term cross product can help you remember how to solve a proportion.

2. Describe the error in these steps: 2/3 = x/12 ; 2x= 36; x=18.

3. Show how to use cross products to decide whether the ratios 5:45 and 2:15 are proportional.

1.  3/12 and x/16
Step 1: Cross Multiply. ;3 x 16=48 and 12 x X=?
Step 2: Divide 12 into 48 which equal 4.
Step 3: Check your work by cross multiplying . 3x16=48 and 12x4=48. This problem is proportional. 

2.  The things that this person did wrong in the problem was that they multiplied 12x3 and that gave a answer of 36 then they divided 2 into 36 and the answer was 18. 

3.  The ratios 5:45 and 2:15 are not proportional because when you cross multiply 5x15=75 and 45x2=90 so that means that 5:45 and 2:15 is not proportional.

Journal Assignment Two-Step Equations

Name: Thalia Abreu 

T-mobile charges $34.99 a month for phone service. They also charge $0.48 per minute for long distance calls. If Joshua's bill was $64.75, how many minutes of long distance calls did she make?

Part A - Write an equation that can be used to solve the problem.

Equation: $64.75 ÷ $0.48= 

Part B - Solve your equation and answer the question in a complete


$64.75 ÷ $0.48= 134 

Joshua made 134 long distance calls

Haiku Poems.

Green leaves in the woods.  

They all fell off of big trees 

Standing tall and proud

The rain damaged it

The petals bend to the earth. 

Now my flower is ruined.   

You're always typing.

Well, let's see you ignore my

I.M that I sent  

Wanna go outside.

Then My brother locked me out. 

Let me back inside!                



It’s nothing to do

I can see now we are threw

I may wipe my tears

Aim: How do we evaluate algebraic expressions?

Write each expression another way.

1. 12x 2. 4/y 3. 3xy/2
12*x y÷4 3⋅x⋅y/2
12⋅x y
x(12) 4
12 x X

Explain the difference between variable and a constant.

The different between variable and constant is that, variables are letters that represents a number that can vary in a equation and a constant is a number that can never change.

Display Data

February 2,2009
Aim: How do we use spreadsheets to create graphs.

Yesterday in class I learned something new and it was fun. I learned how to use spreadsheets to display data into different kinds of graphs such as pie charts and bar graphs. First, I wrote down all the information that I needed. Then, I picked Out which graphs I wanted to compare. Also, When I found it I put all my information in both of the graphs and added my title. Finally, I compared both of the graphs together and from the information that I was using it was easier to understand it on a bar graph because in the pie chart it don't show that much information and in the bar graph they show a lot of information like how many people spent on each activity. I did the graphs on a spreadsheet on our computers and for me it was way better to understand.

Think and Discuss Question:
1. The bar graph is better to understand then the pie chart because
in the pie chart it don't show that much information and in the
bar graphs they show a lot of information like they show how many of
them spent on each activity.
