O okay I understand my mistake, I started at the left (yas correct) but jumped straight to the end then went to the middle of the equation

#64

We basically solve the things in the brackets first, we donât have exponents yet, first is division, then multiplication (theyâre not on the same lvl for us), addition then subtraction (again not on the same lvl)

#65

Yoohoo! I see youâŚ (Again)

Wow ur project sounds like fun, just a ques, is it smh like terraria or something @JonnyGamer?

#66

I suggest checking this out:

Especially the part with multiplication and division

#67

Ok thank you @CreativeCoder btw what grade are you in?

#68

No problem, tell me if you need help with anything. Iâm in 9th grade and Iâm taking pre-calculus this year.

#69

Ok thx so much for the offer!

Iâm in eighth grade doing integrated math (basically algebra, trigonometry, geometry etc combined)

Tbh our teacher really confuses us. So its hard to understand with him.

Math has to be taught in a very specific way to be effective. My teacher last year didnât even really teach our class at all because there was less than ten of us and he had to teach another class ://

#71

My last yearâs teacher was very goood and strict so like, with her Maths was a breeze. I still ask her sometimes about some questions I dont understand and she still helps me.

#72

Thatâs good. My sixth grade teacher was kind of like that.

#73

I have a few projects Iâm working on
(Terraria is one of my favorite games, havenât played it in a while though. That wall of flesh is too trickly for me lol)

2D sandbox math app (so that I can learn Matrices)
Isometric Super Mario Mini Game (before I learn 3d matrices)
Soup Sim (CreativeCoder and I are working on this, but we havenât really donât much on it lately)

#74

Same here

#75

Remember that one bug a few years ago where you could enter in keywords using a bug on the pause menu and gain a bunch of stuff for free?

That was the swellest thing ever

A Cartesian plane (or Cartesian coordinate system) is how objects are positioned on Hopscotch. Two coordinates are used to give a location. Those 2 coordinates correlate to positions along two axis at right angles (i.e. one axis along the bottom and the other axis along the side)

For comparison a different method is the Polar coordinate system. Objects can still be located on a plane using two coordinates, but the coordinates are an angle and radius/distance. For this one think of something like a radar screen.

#77

Oh okay thank you so much @ThinBuffalo. We are going to learn about it soon and it has always kinda confused me, so knowing the basic definition might help me later. Again tysvm!

#78

Thats very nice to know! When will those games be out?

I know right? I thought I was only one of the few that play Terraria.

(Bcz after Minecraft, this was my 2nd favorite game (that was two years ago))

Hello everybodyâŚ

This topic is dead so Iâm bringing it back to life.

I have got the results of my test and my teacher marked this question wrong:

The answer to this is 144, and it was wrong.

Apparently, he worded the question wrong and this was what he intended it to be:

So I lost a mark on the test for a mixed up wording errorâŚ

Ughughughuhgh

mn^2 definitely equals 72,

But with all due respect to your teacher, âmn squaredâ is at best ambiguous.

The way m & n are placed without a space implies the quantity mn is squared or (mn)^2 = 144. âm times n squaredâ has no implied order so that would be mn^2 = 72.

While arguing with a teacher would never end well, I think most teachers would be open to a respectful question supported by critical thinking. You might try politely making the points highlighted above and asking how he/she would have worded (mn)^2.

#81

Actually, let me try to articulate more precisely why the interpretation should be (mn)^2 = 144

Just to remind ourselves, the question was

If m= 2 and n= 6, what is mn squared?

This problem statement is part word problem and part algebraic notation.

The âmnâ is algebraic notation (multiplication by juxtaposition or putting symbols side by side) that was not translated into a word problem. Since the teacher chose to leave mn as alegraic notation, that means mn is a quantity within the context of the word problem, so the correct interpretation is (mn)^2 = 144

If the question was

If m= 2 and n= 6, what is m times n squared?

now there is no alebraic notation, so this translates to mn^2 = 72

See what your teacher says to that if you politely inquireâŚ
