### Scribepost for January 30, 2009

Today we discussed about Algebra.. for example.

1) a+1=2

what's happening at the A?

-it is being added by 1.

The next step is,

you make the equation balanced, to make it balanced you put the opposite number beside itself. like this

a+1-1=2

The next step is..

what you did before you have to do it again beside the answer, like this.

a+1-1=2-1

The next step is..

you now subtract 2 and 1 and now you got the answer for this question

a= 1

now you verify..

a+1=2

1+1=2

2=2

HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND IT.(I TRIED MY BEST)

I PICK CAITLIN FOR THE NEXT SCRIBE.

Decimal numbers such as 3.762 are used in situations which call for more precision than whole numbers provide.

As with whole numbers, a digit in a decimal number has a value which depends on the place of the digit. The places to the left of the decimal point are ones, tens, hundreds, and so on, just as with whole numbers. This table shows the decimal place value for various positions:

Note: That adding extra zeros to the right of the last decimal digit does not change the value of the decimal number.

Im going to show you what we did today but not exactly the same question or number .

Eg. Order these decimal numbers from least to greatest

0.89,0.45,0.27,1.42,1.27

I pick Edmil for the next scribepost.

Range and outlier

Range- positive difference between the largest and smallest values in a data set.

example:3,9,2,4,7,

First step is ordering them
by smallest to largest
2,3,4,7,9
the smallest value and the biggest value
subtract them together.

9-2=7
* therefor-range is seven

Outlier- a value that is much smaller or larger than the other data values.
- a data set may have more than one outlier or zero outliers.

example: *2,9,7,3,4,108

* 21,24,31,29,23,2,91,24,27

### Congrats to All of You! :D

Great job you guys!

It has only been 2 days since you were taught how to use Blogger (better), and you guys are using those notes pretty fast. It's also nice to see that a lot of people are leaving comments behind. Keep it up! If you do, we'll hopefully see more visitors checking out our blog (by looking at the Cluster Map). I'm sure that Mr. Isfeld and Mr. Harbeck are also very proud of you all.

Keep up all the great work!

### Scribe Post for January 14

I am going to show you how to publish a blog.

First off you must put the title. The title is (Scribe Post and The Date). The next thing you do is put the label. Your label must have your user name and then type scribe post with a comma separating them. Example: Connor742,scribepost.

First you need to copy the address of your web site. Then you will need to highlight the word/s that you want the link to leed to. When your done that, click the GREEN button at the top that says link. Then paste the address and press OK. It should look like this.

.:Math:.

Find an image and save it somewhere you can find. The click the little mountain type picture on the toolbar. You then need to click browse. You will see a bunch of files,look for where you saved the picture, then click on it, then click open. When you do that click upload photo and the picture will show up. You can move the picture once you have placed it.

You will need to go find a video on you tube. Then highlight the embed and copy it. Then go to the edit html button at the bottom of you text and paste the embed. After you can go back to your normal text by pressing the 'Compose' button.

To colour your text you will need to click the rainbow button on the toolbar. Don't use YELLOW or any BRIGHT colors you wont be able to see. Making your text bigger or smaller is easy just highlight the text you want and click the button with the two T's. Then click the size you want, it could be BIG or SMALL. If you want it to stick out more you can press the 'b' for Bold or the 'i' for Italics.

Spell Check:

The spell check is a must do, but it is very simple all you must do is click the ABC button on the toolbar. It will show you what words you might have misspelled. When you done click on the 'Done Spell Checking' button.

Save:

This is the most important part of making a scribe post. So now we click the SAVE NOW button. Sometimes it will auto save. It tells you when it auto saved beside the Save Now bar.

I choose (Whoever hasn't done it yet) for the next scribe.
