  • Rate = Distance / Time

    Circumference = Π * Diameter

    Area of a Circle = Π * Radius2

    Area of a Semi-Circle = .5 * Π * Radius2

    Area of a Quadrant(of a Circle) = .25 * Π * Radius2

    Thanksgiving 2010

    Yesterday was Thanksgiving.

    I went to my cousins' house in New Jersey for Thanksgiving.

    I had a great Thanksgiving dinner: bread, corn, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and turkey with gravy.

    And I slept in my cousin Colin's room.

    Andrew Jackson

    Today I just read a short biography about Andrew Jackson.

    He was born in 1767 in the Waxhaw region - which is near where I was born, Charlotte, NC.

    Andrew joined the army during the Revolutionary War when he was only 13.

    His Dad died before he was born, and the rest of his family died during the War.

    Even though he was an orphan he went on to do many great things.

    And he became the 7th President of the United States.

    He's my father's favorite President!

    There was a polar bear.

    There were penguins, lots of them!

    I saw bats.
