Fishing

~I enjoy fishing in the summer! I go fishing with my friends and sometimes my dad off of charter boats, off the dock, in the bay, at Argyle Lake, or at Southards Pond. I own a lot of fishing poles and have a big tackle box full of all sorts of hooks and bobbers, etc. To me, fishing is a very relaxing way to just hang out with friends and family.

My Research Question

Mathematics

~I enjoy mathematics in school! I see math greatly involved in future jobs I will hold as an adult. My math average in Math 8x is very high and in 7th grade I got the math scholastic award, which means I had the highest math average in the 7th grade. I am also happy that I am good at mathematics since it is one of the most important topics to be good at as you go through life.
