Introducing Me!!! Hi Everyone! My name is Tara and I am the creator of this breathtaking magazine called, Hello! Algebra. I used to dislike math,

until I recently participated in a math contest, which made me study a lot, use my time wisely, and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! I was responsible and asked my teacher for extra practice tests to work on. My parents were also a huge support in the process and helped me achieve my goals. While studying so hard for the contest, I realized Math had many interesting theories and concepts that can help you in life. For example, when going shopping, you need to know your percents, if there ever is a discount. In third grade, I was assigned to find jobs that require Math or require knowing the concepts of Math. I found a couple: a cashier, to calculate change and how much a customer spent; bankers who work with money (add and subtract, etc.). There are many other jobs that require knowledge of money, operations, and dimensional weight (height, width, length, etc.).

How to find the angles in a triangle when only two are given

?

62˚

62

Step One;

Draw the triangle if not already completed. ˚

Step Two;

Add the two angles that are already there. For example, 62+62. The answer is 124.

Step Three;

Step Four;

Step Five.

,.

Since you know that all the angles in a triangle have to add up to 180º, subtract 180 from 124. You get 56º. Now you see that the missing angle in the triangle is 56˚ by adding the given angles and subtract them from 180. To make sure you got the right answer, add up all the angles and you should get 180º. 54º 62º

62º

Interview with the Father of Algebra – Francois Viete Q: How long did it take you to invent ‘New Algebra’? A: 12 years (1591=1603) Q: What topics in math do you study? A: Algebra and trigonometry.

Q: What University did you study at? A: University of Poiteirs Q: Did you publish any books that related to math or your passion? A: Yes I did actually. It was called “Canon Mathematicus”, which mentioned many things of what I like to call my math. Q: How old were you when you realized that Math was your real passion? A: Well ... I only did math in my spare time while I was in college. I really liked Law and wanted to become a lawyer. Time passed, and I stopped being a lawyer and spent more of my time on math.
