collaborative PLN project

Doing this project with my partner showed me what songs we have in common and what we dont. i also noticed that philly is introduced to newer music faster than we are. for the most part my partner david loomis and i enjoy most of the same music. he wasnt so much into country, as i wasnt into eminem. it was fun to see how much we have in common even tho we are miles apart.

i enjoy skyping with creators of websites. its very helpful to understand and clarify how the website works and to gain extra knowledge about it. its also fun to connect with the rest of our class.

Juxio was a fun project to do with our PLN class. I enjoyed making this online powerpoint about my passion. Juxio is a great way to share a project to peers.


1) football scores
2) equation: y=.12x+20.62
3) r= .15
4) no correlation
5) sometimes when you graph your material you realize you are better off with the original document. other times its easier to follow your graph depending on what info you use.

the slope of this line is .12 and the y-int is 20.62

No matter what i decide to do in the future i think that what i learn here will be helpful and great use to me. some of my favorite web 2.0 tools so far are symbaloo and twitter.

math functions.

A function is putting something in and getting a unique answer. Functions are used to "decode" secret messages. It would be helpful to understand functions so that you are able to figure out what codes are when needed.

Guess My Number

I am taking algebra 2 this year with Miss Pettit. We were assigned to make up our own number guessing game. Don't assume it is going to be hard and boring, because once you find the pattern and figure out how it works it is fun and enjoyable to do. My rules are. . . . . . . . 1) pick a number 2) add 4 3) multiply by 2 4) subtract 4 5) divide by 2 6) subtract original number SOLUTION: always end up with 2

Thanks Mr. Linde!!

this year each student at van meter was given a new macbook laptop for a 1:1 program. i really enjoy them. we use our computers for most of our assignments and projects. they are very useful and helpful to most students. of course we chat and play games on our down time when we are done with school work. below is a popular game we play on our macs, try it out and see what you think.

studying for school

the hard part about school is studying for upcoming tests. its a pain when teachers plan tests on the same day, too hard to get all the studying time in. but i figured out the best to help me memorize all the important information is writing it down several of times. you might think thats a waste of time, but you might wanna give it a try if you havent already. paying attention in class is also lots of help in the long run as well as taking notes so you have easy accessible facts to look back at when studying. good luck and happy studying!!
