Post 158: April 29th-May 26th – Final Post

Well, it’s been an interesting school year. I’ve covered a ton of different subjects, from Oceanography to English, to Economics and Game Design, From Algebra to art history. It’s been a wild ride, but all rides must come to an end. I’ve completed my essay/research paper, and it will be at the bottom of this post, along with all sources. Be aware that it is mostly unedited, so things may not flow as well as they might otherwise. But hey, it was fun to write. I’m glad I did the research and learned about this stuff, because while it may not be practical knowledge, it was at least enjoyable knowledge.

 

So, yeah. This was an interesting year, my first and last time doing “proper” home school. I had a lot of control over my own education, and I think it worked out. I do believe that I’m smarter than I was at the start of the year, and have some more perspective on myself before I go to college.

 

This blog was fun, but all good things have to come to an end, right? So to everyone that read this blog, all 3 of you, good luck with your own learning, and I say, Farewell.

First order of business today was Algebra. I learned about geometric sequences. Basically, a geometric sequence is a sequence in which each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous term by a constant called the common ratio. Pretty simple.

 

Next up, English. Finished reading the excerpts from Gilgamesh. I still think that it’s an interesting story, and I find the idea of only being able to live on in memory and fame kind of interesting from a philosophical perspective
