On Monday we reviewed for a quiz. Then on Tuesday  we took a quiz, I didnt finish it yet. On Wednesday we did more review. I am exited for what lies ahead in my math classroom! I am also excited about my last test.

In math this week we learned about intergurs. An intergur is when you take a number line up to 5 and you make sure that there is a negative side. Then  you take an negative number and take away the negative sign. It was really easy for me and i aced the test on it. Also the way Mrs.Resnick taught it to us made it easy.

When your an adult you normally want to start dieting. Well Carbs are very important because they give you short term energy and yes having a lot of carbs is bad. Lets say you are running a marathon tomorrow you, need carbs so you eat pasta for dinner and toast for breakfast. So yes having to many carbs is bad but if you have just the right amount your good.

A Righteous Gentile is a non Jew who has saved a Jew from being killed by the Nazi’s.  I have a story of a Righteous Gentile her name is Marianna Kopyt. A girls mother and grandmother were taken from their home ghetto to a different ghetto. All that was left for her was her father, her father took her to a family friend who was christian. The friends name was Marianna Kopyt. She kept them safe until the war was over. Without Righteous Gentiles there would be less Jews in this world. These people saved future generations and helped the Jewish community grow. They are lifesavers.

     In the book Prisoner B-3087 by Alan Gratz, the main character is Yanek. Yanek is a Jew in 1940’s Poland. He goes through multiple concentration camps. He also loses his family and people he loves. I can’t imagine going through that. I think Birkenau  was the worst camp he went to.

 

    The first thing Yanek went through was being shoved into a gas chamber. Helpless, Yanek curled up on the floor. The other prisoners were banging on the door screaming uncontrollably.

He finally got up after five minutes of waiting  and yelled loudly at the Nazi’s to “kill us already!” Out came water and everyone danced. I think the gas chamber was scary, I would have banged on the doors too.

 

      The second horrible thing Yanek had to endure at Birkenau was getting a tattoo. When Yanek was in line, he heard men screaming.Yanek didn’t know what was going on until he got to the front of the line. He saw men screaming and needles. I can’t bear people in pain, so would have looked away.

 

     The last  horrible thing Yanek had to go through at Birkenau was the work. He had to move heavy back breaking rocks from one side of the yard to the other over and over again. That is torture, I wouldn’t be able to bear work like that.

 

During Yanek’s time at Birkenau and while he was a prisoner at war. I think of all the trials Yanek went through in Birkenau which included the following: being terrified in a gas chamber, getting a tattoo,and being forced to work. The incident in the gas chamber was actually the worst. I think it is great that in the end Yanek survived.

A microscope changes the way we see things resulting in finding out new about bacteria like finding a cure for the flu. I really think that is importent for the world and that the microscope is very importent.

In the movie “Pay It Forward” a little kid gets a assignment and the assignment says “think of a way to change the world and put it into action”. Well this kid takes it way too seriously, he sees a man who is homeless and takes him in. he feeds the man, he lets the mansleep there, and he gives him money. This kid tells him “pay it forward”, this man passes it on. Later you learn that his mom passed it and his grandma and so on. It soon came to a reporter who wanted learn who started it. He traces it back to the boy. The boy gets interviewed and afterward he sees a kid getting bullied, he tries to help but one kid had a knife and stabbed the little kid he was taken to the ER and passed away. Later people came to remember this kid at his house.  This relates to

מצוה גוררת מצוה – “One mitzvah leads to another” because everyone helped each other in a chain that is how it relates.

This week in math we had a test. Due to this test we had reviews all week. I think that this test was fairly easy. I turned it in and got myself  a A. 

I created a animal in science. I call it the Birdacorn.  It is a multi-cellular animal and walks and flies. It eats with its mouth and gets rid of its waste through its mouth. It starts out  0.3048 meters tall and gets to be 1.524 meters and weighs 226.796 kilograms.  It has two stages 1: baby  2: adult. My animal  eats grass and drinks soda, its asexual so parts of the birdacorn come off and become baby’s.  You can find this creature in the plains when it is cold with it’s herd.

In math a normal is when a graph is symmetrical.  When its a box and whisker plot you can tell by the median being in the middle of the box.  When its a skerw graph its not symmetrical. I have no idea why there is the normal when you can always do skerw.  It makes no sense.
