Hey! If you ever wanna show me something, tag it as friskafreak, without the hyphen! Thanks!

Apologies for flooding with math.

Maybe all that teaching finally got to me 8C

friska-freak this is how I remember doing algebra haha BUT WHO EVEN KNOWS ANYMORE
This would’ve been literally years ago though like I haven’t done a math class since high school (I miss math)

That is sorta how my sister does it too yes
It’s just I dunno why they need to put the -4 twice- like just put send it to the other side and have it over with |D
but then again, that’s my opinion, so if it works it’s a valid method! Just seems a bit confusing to me. Then again I’m missing a lot as far as math is concerned so I probably shouldn’t talk. |D

The idea is like if you do it to one side of the equal sign you need to do it to the other, thus like… keeping things in balance and stuff? Like I said I like to keep track of my arithmetic since I’m SO BAD at arithmetic haha so I’d keep those straight but then I’d be lazy when it’d come to like the division and just put one line across and stuff which… isn’t accurate or anything but that’s how it is
A lot of the way I write comes out of laziness and trying to keep my math stuff straight haha

WAIT.
WAIT I GET WHY THEY USE THAT METHOD NOW. 8D
It’s to prepare the students to use the same method in chemistry: keep both sides in balance- except I do not remember a single thing from my chemistry classes so I can’t be a good judge of this at all. >u>”
But I do at least remember you had to keep a balance on both sides of the formula
….Or maybe I’m just being weird about this I dunno

That striking-out thing is unusual to me, too. As long as some sort of work was shown, up until about late high school (when we got graphing calculators), it would count.

Yeah, that’s what happened in the IGCSE thingy too, so… I dunno. And with the younger grades, the only time it isn’t allowed to use a different method is if they were teaching you this method SPECIFICALLY, but even then, it’s not counted as wrong if they decide to count on their fingers instead of use a number line.

it’s probably because us-americans like to do everything different than the rest of the world. In germany we do it the first way as well.

*Coughcelsiusvsfarenheitcough*

*COUGHMETRICVSIMPERIALCOUGH*

Though I think imperial is used in the English system as well, I dunno. We never really learned it, not even as something to convert, which might be a shame. Sister’s school takes both I think. 

No but again, as long as it makes sense to whoever is using it. |D

My sister is doing her Math homework, but the American way of doing algebra is so… odd?

So the way I do it and assume is probably English is like this: 

5t - 9 = 26 
t = (26 + 9) / 5
t = 35 / 5
t = 7

The American way is apparently 

5t - 9 = 26 
5t -9 = 26
   +9    +9
5t / 5 = 35 / 5
t = 7

… I understand they’re different methods but is the whole “strike- out” thing really necessary? Why not just send the numbers over the other side of the = with its opposite sign?

Better question: how come when you use the first method in the American system, showing all the steps, it’s still graded as wrong?

Because in America, it isn’t about getting the question correct. It’s about doing it the way they tell you. I got in trouble every time I changed schools because I was just one of those who does it in my head and I was accused of cheating by each new teacher, and would have to prove again and again in a sterile test environment with only myself and a 100 question test that I’m actually just good at math and don’t need to show my work.

But yeah, school here is not about learning how to do things, it’s about learning to do what you’re told.

fffff 8C that sounds horrid, yeah. 

I understand the idea of needing to explain how you did something because it’s a skill you need in a work environment, like if you need to teach an intern how to do your job. “Here is how you do thing.” 

But at the same time I don’t really understand the concept of rejecting one method, even if it might be easier to understand. 

It’s like telling someone: “Okay, you need to open this jar of peanut butter. But to open it, you need to put it on the table. Then take it off the table. Then twist the lid. Then put it back on the table. Then take off the lid. Now put the lid on the table.” 

instead of “Just take the damn peanut butter and twist the lid open.”

You understand how it’s done? You can explain it? Okay, you’re good to go. Not “YOU DIDN’T DO IT MY WAY SO NEH NEH NEH.”

I feel like you could probably get away with that in the States? Haha I dunno I haven’t done math in the States in YEARS. I’d like to write stuff underneath as I moved them across but it kept things clear for me

Might just be us then, “textbook answers only” is unfortunately rampant here. >n>

thesem replied to your post:My sister is doing her Math homework, but the…

I don’t remember having to do the striking out, just showing the steps. Also the first method doesn’t show all the steps, technically, like you can see them if you know the math, but… yeah. It’s not explicit.

That might have been just me though, so if I were a student, I would get an “incomplete work” even in the English system. |D

So probably the proper way to do it is more like this: 

5t - 9 = 26 
5t = (26 + 9)
5t = 35
t= 35 / 5
t = 7

….but the whole strike-out thing is what’s confusing me, it just seems like a really round-about way of doing it. Like okay, it works, but it’s confusing. Plus they both work, doesn’t make sense to reject a method that works.

Unless you’re specifically teaching them different ways they can do it and want to see if they can use that, but they aren’t. Just “nope, use this method and this method only” 8C

Me posting about Math.

…Who would’ve thought. :’D

friska-freak I found another villain song for you

ARTHUR! <3

PUTT PUTT AND FREDDI FISH AND PAJAMA SAM ARE ON STEAM SDFSFGS-

friska-freak:

Guys I know it’s not Halloween yet but I want ALL THE VILLAIN SONGS. GIVE ME ALL YOUR VILLAIN SONGS FROM UNDERRATED MOVIES NO MATTER HOW CHEESY. I NEED THEM. 8C 

Okay I know you made this post like back in August and I’ve been slow/busy about making it so here’s a list haha better late than never…?

  • I still like Nostalgia Critic’s Top 11 Villain Songs, it’s a pretty solid list so I’d check that out ahaha Nostalgia Critic oh SEM
  • All of Audrey II’s songs in Little Shop of Horrors, the Thénardiers’ (sans Eponine) songs in Les Mis, like… okay pick musicals you like that have villains, and then their songs, you’re set! Yeah. I love musicals, we’d be here a while.
  • Speaking of ANY GIVEN DISNEY VILLAIN SONG. The best of which were covered by the list up there but my faves do include “Poor Unfortunate Souls" and "Cruella De Vil" which isn’t sung by a villain but is about a villain and I still love it. OH and "The Madness of King Scar" since that is Broadway-only but let’s be real Broadway Lion King Soundtrack »> movie Lion King Soundtrack (IMO). And okay like do I need to mention "Hellfire" like that’s just assumed, right? Same for "Friends on the Other Side" at this point too…
  • In the same vein of “about villains” my two favorite songs on the album “The Greatest Show Unearthed” by Creature Feature are “Aim for the Head" and "Look to the Skies" though other songs are inspired by Poe and Gorey and other classic B-movies so there are like… classic villain songs on there
  • SHIA LABEOUF, A MODERN CLASSIC (some flashing text and I guess blood/gore but it’s very cartoony haha)
  • Brains! by Voltaire aka That Song from the Little Shop of Horrors parody of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy (pretty sure it’s called “Little Rock of Horrors”) in high school (guess who used this as a song for orchestra when we’d bring in songs that used orchestral instruments at the end of the year it totally wasn’t SEM). And because it’s also by Voltaire “When You’re Evil" and I’m sure if I knew more Voltaire I’d have more examples haha

Not villain songs per se buuuuut:

  • Cinderella’s Revenge" by The Tenth Stage is a creepy song that I think I should just let people hear…? Yeah.
  • RITE OF SPRING. RITE OF SPRIIIING. IT’S 30 MINUTES IT’S SO CREEPY HERE’S THE JOFFREY’S RECONSTRUCTED VERSION OF THE 1912 ORIGINAL CHOREOGRAPHY AND SETS AND COSTUMES BUT THERE ARE OTHERS OKAY COOL IT IS SO CHILLING PLEASE WATCH IT
  • Saints-Saëns’ “Danse Macabre" which is actually based off of a folk tune (and dance, if memory serves?) known as the tarantella (also he totally used it in another piece of his, the Fossils in the Carnival of the Animals), anyway, I love it, I love it, I love it. The violin at the end is the crowing of the cock, signifying dawn has come and that the ghostly dancers return to their graves once more and that another Halloween has passed, basically. This piece is so great.
  • If you’re into orchestral music AND FRANKLY WHO ISN’T HAHA, or if you want some like cool spooky orchestral music that you’d recognize a bunch from, the album “Fright Night: Music that Goes Bump in the Night” is a collection of things like the “Danse Macabre” and “Night on Bald Mountain” (as heard/seen in Fantasia trust me you know exactly which part I mean), “In the Hall of the Mountain King,” “Funeral March of a Marionette” (aka the theme to Alfred Hitchcock Presents), to more modern pieces like the Vertigo Suite (as heard of at the beginning of the music video of “Born This Way” an artist choice that still makes me wonder “Why. Why. Why is this here. The allusions to Vertigo in “Paparazzi“‘s vid made sense what is the Vertigo Suite doing here”) and lots of other solid pieces of music. ANYWAY this album miiiight be iTunes only (like my dad bought it a few years back I have no idea) but I can get a tracklisting if people are interested in iiiit? Let me be your orchestral guide. Let me tell you how orchestral music is awesome.

AHHHH THANK YOU I IWLL LEAVE THIS UP HERE SO PEOPLE CAN SEE THE AWESOME. 

Also you win awesome points for knowing Cinderella’s Revenge. c’: 

REMEMBER THE SKETCHBOOK I’VE LOST SINCE AUGUST?

I FINALLY FOUND IT AND NOW I AM HAPPY AGAIN. <3 

There is something incredibly satisfying about finding out that some of your games’ folders contain soundtracks. c:
