The unit of

**counting**presented a very different view upon how we approach mathematics. Before, we always just applied formulas very directly and precisely, but here we must think first. I think that DEV really distorted my homework endeavors by consuming all of my time, thus leaving no time for any exercises. I really regret not doing any exercises, as I suffered greatly when each of those grueling quizzes were presented to us (GRr my Averaggee )= ) and now I feel so horrible. Though, now that I look back at the entire unit I can see that it's not actually that difficult if you familiarize yourself with the methods of thinking. Each question almost always requires a unique approach But, like Mr. K said, try to associate or relate the problem at hand with questions that we have conquered together throughout the unit. It's a good tip, and there's quite a bit to remember and methods of solving that I know I wil(as should all of you) practice to prepare for this test. Remember, permutations concern arrangements or choices that regard a significance in the change of the order, whereas combinations concern arrangements that do NOT regard a significance in the change of order. Well I have to go catch up on all my english homework (Grr DEV), hope my computer doesn't go sour again anytime soon, and I also hope to have time to review efficiently for tomorrow's test. Boo for the deadly combination of a bombardment of homework and uncooperative computer =/ Hope you all can study and do your best on the approaching counting test! Hope I get the chance to study =) G'night!

**Good Luck to Everyone on the Counting Test!!**
