### Graphing Our Initials

Last week we were working problem number seven in math. Problem number seven was graphing our initials on an online graphing calculator called Desmos. First thing we had to do was to graph it on a piece of graph paper. Once we finished that we had to find an equation for each line we graphed. This was the hardest part for me because it was so time consuming. It was took about two hours to completely find all of the equations. There were a lot of mistakes I made while doing this, I wrote a lot of equations wrong and of rewriting them just to find out it was wrong again. After a long time I finally got all of them right. After we found the equation for each line we had to graph it on Desmos. This part was where I realized I made most of my mistakes finding the equations. My lines were off and it was really frustrating trying to fix them. We also had to graph the lines to look just like my initials (J and S). When I finally finished I realized that it was late so I made sure to turn it in to get credit. So if you didn't catch it, my mistake was writing some of the equations wrong. It was really upsetting having to fix it over and over again to the point where I almost gave up on it. I just had to suck it up and do that best that I could do. I learned that when solving a problem you're going to make a lot of mistakes while doing, but if you keep trying you'll eventually get the right answer. I next time should learn to manage my stress so that I could keep working and not come close to giving up.
