Mathematics Question

5. -7 (-1) = 7


Brackets ( ) represent multiply.
Negative x Negative = Positive.

So, -7 (-1) = -7 x -1
                 = 7 x 1
                 = 7

Day 2: End-of-Day Reflection

What have I done today?

I built a tower with some of my friends as far as I can remember.

How have I grown from today's activities?

I have learned to co-operate while doing group work.

How should I behave when doing group work?

I should listen to other's opinion and voice out my own as well as staying quiet the whole time is as good as not contributing to the project given.

Why are there differences of opinions?

Some people might have other ideas that they would like to add on and a few of the group members might beg to differ so sometimes conflicts can happen during discussion.

Why am I happy to be a member of the class?

This class is actually not like what I had expected in the first place. I thought it would be all gloomy and everyone would keep to themselves but it turns out I was wrong. In fact, I have been enjoying myself ever since yesterday besides feeling a little tired at the end of the day. The atmosphere is lively most of the time and you do feel perfectly at home.

And I guess that concludes my 2nd day reflection.

Day 2: Tower Building

Day 1 Mac Attack 1 - Activity 4: End-of-Day Reflection

What have I done today?

I played a few ice breakers with my new class and did an introduction.

What have I learnt today?

I've learnt a few tips on using the learning device.

Why did you choose to come to SST?

Well, I thought the method/way of teaching would suit me better as books normally bore me out quite easily and Science is one of my strengths.

What are your aspirations as a member of the SST family?

I aspire to excel in my studies and hopefully make friends on the way for the moment. I don't really have a specific aspiration for now but those 2 are the main points.

How have you grown from the activities conducted today? Use one of the pictures from the PICASA album which best illustrates your growth (especially in relation to the 3Rs).

I've grown/learnt to be more social and to go in to a new environment with an open mind. I've also learnt to be more responsible of my actions as there are consequences to every action/move made. I can't work PICASA out and I don't have any pictures here so I'll leave that out.

And with all that, I conclude Day 1 in SST.
