Okay so that "Unit Test" was easy.. I didnt study at all for it and still found that I could complete everything on it. All of our tests should be like that.. because then yea.. the class would be cool like that =P

Whats the new unit we are starting and what do we do with the table of contents.? do we just get all the work we did and form like a booklet or something??

Hey Everybody!!!

This morning we started off with a review on reconciling a bank statement. You should have come to the answer of $2 225.20. We then went over our latest assignment - Questions 3, 4 and 5, on pages 119-121. Towards the end of the class we learned how to fill out a transaction record if we were to use the internet to pay our bills. Lastly, we played the transaction record game that we played on Friday.
-We have a QUIZ on Reconciling a Bank Statement tomorrow (February 22).
-We have a unit TEST on Friday (February 24).

Today in class, as always, we learned something new. We learned how to reocncile a bank statement. I found the work to be easy and useful for the future. It's amazing how much math is related to banking. Also, generally speaking, the "quiz" we had on friday was quite easy. It was nothing new. In addition to that, we had a lot of practice and work before that so we were quite confident entering the quiz. I hope you found this blog entry to be useful and interesting. Until then, Frank take care.. Yezzer!

P.S. Even though Valentine's is over and done with.. I made a picture in paint on my spare time and thought I'd share it with the readers.

Hi you

Well, this friday I believe we started off the class with a transaction review. We then corrected the transactoin questions from the previous class. After then we had to do a quiz on transacion records . For the rest of the class we played a game about transaction record which I found quite intresting. Thats all for now, going to hit the hay.

You are going to love me for this one.

Hey Jellybeans,

Is this cool or what??? You can make your own graffiti art using this site, GraffitiCreator.Net (It is super easy to use)

I found out about it from GraemeW in Mr. Malandrakis's 20s Computer Science class.

Hello class,

today we corrected questions 2 - 9 and 12 (excluding 7) half the class. After that we went to the mac lab and started our new banking assignment using the blog page theirs a link to the info to help you, thats all i remember, sorry frank.


hey everyone!

sooo, that was a huge waste of time..(the assembly), they didnt really have
anny good news. only bad news, it really sucked, it really sued for me because i
had to go to it twice because of chemistry...grrr... did anyone else have to go twice??
what did you all think about the cell phone rule???.. me personally i didnt like it, i like being able to use my phone for a calculater when i forget mine at home, or being able to talk to my friends through text messeges..
but i guess theres nothing that you can really do about.
well thats it for now...

Hey Jellybeans,

Thanks to Jason D. I have a new word - "Telepathetic" - I like it, it's good.

Ever wonder if the computer can see you? Or read your mind? Well, check this out.

See if you can find the "pattern". After all, if it's math, there has to be a pattern.

Banking Project - Due: Friday Feb. 17

Hello Jellybeans,

Are you ready to learn all about banking?? The assignment that you are about to begin will involve researching the types of accounts and services that are available through your local bank. You will be using a document produced by the Canadian Banking Association to help guide you through the different features that distinguish various accounts. Pay attention to the vocabulary that is used. If you do not understand a word, check the glossary at the end of the document.

Happy Banking,
Ms. Armstrong

cheques and saftey

Hi class,

On Friday we learned how to fill out a deposit slip, and a cheque. I have seen this before in my grade 9 skills, class. This material seemed to be easy to grab, although i had a few questions here and there. The questions that are needed be completed are 2-9 and 12, but omit number 7. The questions are not due till Tuesday the 14th.
Oh in class, we found out not to put our phone numbers on the internet, escpecially on this blog, so stalkers won't be doing their job within two clicks. Thats about all i can remember, so yeah.

Learn From Mistakes?

I so did that on *purpose* so you can see how easy it is to get perved out by some old guy. or gett called up by some teacher or perved guy =P
Haha.. Well People can learn from my mistake.. but It's all gravy cause I put a block on myspace.. so you have to be a friend in order to see my page.. But I guess I should still be careful.. And today I missed class.. but I'm kinda glad I did cause It sounded like I got into madd trouble = I don't know if we did anything important at the begenning but I heard everyone was in the mac lab and visited my blog... which I put No effort into what so ever..
Now im going to go to sleep tonight and all I'm going to hear is.. "Just two clicks"

i was late....

i was late for class again and i was wondering what we did????
did i miss anything important or were we in the coomputer lab
the enitre time????...
and in really like this unit, but its starting to get kind of boring,
i feel like i need a little bit more of a challenge...
so if you have any challenges for me mrs. armstrong throw them at me...

OK well Im a Dork and I like to say stupid things.. Don't get offended because I really dont mean any harm.?
So now Im bored && I decided to post on here.. Just because I can =D

That Money game Kinda got repetitive so I stoped.. It only like asks you 10 questions or so.. but yea.. Unless it gives me real money..bleh.

Class was easy but I was late. And I think I missed something. Those Deposite slips started to get Annoying after the third one.. And I started to laugh at the lame names "Morris Stein, Inga Van, Ranj Panikkar"

I have a question for these Booklets you gave us. Can we draw/write in them.. Because I kinda already did =/

Well yea anyways.. Thats it?

Call me ;]

Show me the money!!

Hey Jellybeans,

Here's a game that you can play to practice making change. You can work your way up from easy to super hard levels but make sure you choose the Canadian Currency.

If you are curious, you can find out what Mexican pesos, English pounds, Australian dollars, and American dollars look like. Check it out and try giving change in different currencies. You never know where life may take you.

Have fun!
Ms. Armstrong

What am I supposed to write about?

Hello jellybeans,

So... it's your turn to be the class scribe and you're not quite sure what to do. Sound about right??

Well, try answering these questions in your scribe post:
  1. What did we do in class today?
  2. What did we learn during these activities?
  3. Was this new information or something I've seen in math or another class before?
  4. Was the material difficult or easy to understand?
  5. Is there something that I still don't understand and could ask my classmates to explain?
  6. Did anything else happen during class that would be fun to keep a record of?

Have fun, be creative, and remember this is a public forum. What you write represents yourself, your classmates, your teacher, and your school so blog responsibly and safely.
Ms. Armstrong
