This week we had our first chapter test over limits and I thought I did fairly well. I was confident in many of my answers accept the salt and pepper function which I wasn't able to answer but that is alright. I understand the basis of how they work I just could not find the exact equations that would make the statement true. I do enjoy those problems though. I like that satisfying feeling of figuring out a problem such as these. This type of math is why I enjoy it. Sometimes it can be like solving one giant puzzle and once you finally figure it out you are filled with relief and a sense of pride. The salt and pepper functions are a little bit like that which makes them enjoyable.
I also am really enjoying the mental math exercises we do every day. Those are also really fun and kind of like a game. I like thinking out things in my head like that. I like it so much that sometimes when I’m bored from running long distances I’ll start doing my times table and see how far I can get while still keeping track of all the numbers to pass time. I’m such a nerd.
