In Variables and Patterns, students will study some basic ideas of algebra and some ways to use those ideas to solve problems about variables and patterns relating variables. In particular, they will learn how to: Identify quantitative variables in situations; Recognize situations where changes in variables are related in useful patterns; Describe patterns of change shown in words, tables and graphs of data; Construct tables and graphs to display relations among variables; Observe relationships between two quantitative variables as shown in a table, graph, or equation and describe how the relationship can be seen in each of the other forms of representation; Use algebraic symbols to write rules and equations relating variables; Use tables, graphs, and equations to solve problems; and Use graphing calculators to construct tables and graphs of relations between variables and to answer questions about these relations. Stretching and Shrinking In Stretching and Shrinking students learn the mathematical meaning of similarity and explore the properties of similar figures. Comparing and Scaling In Comparing and Scaling students will learn how to: Analyze comparison statements made about quantitative data Use ratios, fractions, differences, and percents to form comparison statements in a given situation, such as "What is the ratio of boys to girls in our class? Moving Straight Ahead In Moving Straight Ahead, students will study some basic ideas of algebra and some ways to use those ideas to solve problems involving linear relationships and linear functions. In particular, they will learn how to: Recognize problem situations in which two variables have a linear relationship to each other; Describe the patterns of change between the independent and dependent variables for linear relationships that are represented in tables, graphs or equations; Construct tables, graphs, and symbolic equations that express linear relationships; Translate information about linear relations given in a table, a graph, or an equation to one of the other forms; Understand the connections between linear equations and patterns in the tables and graphs of those relations-rate of change, slope, and y-intercept; Solve linear equations, using tables, graphs and symbolic expressions; Connect solutions of equations to graphs and tables and vice versa; Describe the information the variables and numbers in an equation represent; Solve problems and make decisions about linear relationships using information given in tables, graphs, and symbolic expressions.

This is a horrible picture. It shows nothing about the trope and suits nothing more than a desperate need to be funny. Was someone high when posting this? Web 2. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. For example, the "correct" answer to the question "How are you?
And you? Even if your house exploded in a freak accident that morning and you were flattened by a runaway horse and then fired for coming into work covered in hoofprints. Advertisement: However, sometimes this can be taken to an extreme. We can get so carried away with the freedom of voicing the things that annoy us that we completely forget to even mention the things that we actively enjoy.
And come across as a pessimist as a result. As society becomes more and more cynical although, in face-to-face interaction, general grouching is still pretty unacceptable, which is why grouching is different. Therefore, stories tend to focus on the unpleasant parts of life, be it divorce, murder, or the Apocalypse s.
Stories about how nice life is and how good it is to be alive are usually reserved for children — and generally pretty young children at that. Negative Nellie : An online personality found on message boards. Complains constantly about the flaws in a show or book, achieved record time for plot-hole spotting and just will not let that episode that everyone pretends never happened be forgotten.
They leave that to the resident hothead. Their temper is reserved for their least favourite parts of their favourite show. Annoyed Webmaster. Will make fun of the things it likes, never mind the bad stuff.
Often, if an audience, broadcaster or forum member is challenged about their complaints e. Of course, they like it! Often done by The Cynic or Caustic Critic.
Never mind the fact that Ash will never age past 10 , which is explains why his maturation as a Trainer and a person in general always seems to be negated come the newest arc. Fans hated the new voice-acting in and they still hate it now. Al Kahn and his executives bring it on themselves, but many anime fans unreasonably pan every writer, voice actor and worker in the entire company as being evil satanic monsters for doing dubs on anime and nothing the company does can ever be in the least bit right.
Comic Books The series 52 was recognized by numerous reviewers as a series that exemplified the competent and positive portrayal of gay and lesbian characters in fiction and one of the co-authors was Greg Rucka , who earned a Gaylactic Spectrum award for his previous work on Gotham Central that served as a partial prequel to this series.
However, numerous bloggers and internet reviewers heavily criticized the changing bust-size of Renee Montoya and Kate Kane between Weeks Seven and Eleven. They stated that this exemplified the comics industry policy of including gay and lesbian characters and stories solely for the titillation of readers.
But the one everyone heard about was issue one of "Red Hood and the Outlaws". And even that was only because of some poorly thought out changes in the character of Starfire — changes that occupy maybe three pages out of the entire issue.
When the art for the tenth issue was released, there was even more complaining. Grumpy Smurf. In an Achille Talon comic, the titular character spends a page ranting against a critic who judged all books of the comic as being "not the best of the series".
Avengers Arena has had this from the day it was announced, people calling it gorn and disgustingly violent. This was before anyone read a page. All the gags in this comic strip are Black Comedy about stuff that worry and depress most people: Suicide, fear of world war, fear of the bomb, fear of nuclear power, fear of epidemics But also fantastical After the End jokes, Take That!
Life in Hell : The title is very negative and was inspired, as Matt Groening said, by the fact that he "had just moved to Los Angeles". Rough Riders : The curt descriptions for each Rough Rider in Nation are often highly unflattering, stressing their murky legal histories and various episodes of deviant behaviour as far as the government saw it. In Stick It , one of the major plot points is that the judges are picking apart incredible skills and routines to deduct for minor technical errors.
This is illustrated in one critical scene where a gymnast performs an absurdly difficult vault with incredible skill, only to get a half point deduction a significant number in gymnastics over a visible bra strap. Wells , in his late 19th-century work of science-fiction, The War of the Worlds , had the all-destroying alien tripods land in London at least partly with the intention of having them reduce his home districts of London, Woking and Bromley, to smouldering corpse-heavy rubble.
Wells utterly despised Bromley for its parochial mentality and its lower-middle-class smug smallmindedness. He also wanted to get even for long, soul-destroying thirteen hour days spent in a miserable McJob working for a tiny-minded bully. In a similar vein are Crap Cars and Crap Holidays.
When humor columnist Dave Barry issued his "bad song survey", the idea of which was to ask his readers to vote for the worst song of all time, he received a greater amount of reader mail than ever before the winner, incidentally, was " MacArthur Park ". Realising that reviews tearing a film apart are more entertaining to read than those full of praise, Roger Ebert published a book of them called I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie.
The title was from his review of North. But in fairness, he also has a book of essays called The Great Movies that praises his favorite classics, and Your Movie Sucks was a direct response to Snark Bait from Deuce Bigalow star Rob Schneider , who he later reconciled with. Particularly notable is the fact that he predicted and answered the probable question: Question: If you find so much worthy of ridicule in America, then why do you live here?
Answer: Why do men go to zoos? Dorothy Parker did this a lot as part of her "Constant Reader" persona. How hardass was she? She excoriated Winnie-the-Pooh. It openly celebrated colossal feats of incompetence though never those that lead to real pain, harm or danger strangely enough. Another little known book, The Gripes of Wrath, is filled entirely with cuttings and samples of speeches, reports, speeches and articles that highlight all kinds of negative features of the world such as stupidity, lack of common sense, obstructive bureaucrats, falling standards, sexism, racism, etc etc etc.
If a human gets a shard in their eye or heart, they will never be able to see anything except the bad in any thing they look at.
People often like to mock the dialogue, the songs and the Values Dissonance , along with much of the tropes being overused, deconstructed and played with many times. However Tolkien popularised many of the fantasy cliches and most of the Legendarium was dark and mature, being an Unbuilt Trope on the genre. But people have mostly just read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and criticise the flaws of those stories, despite the mature ideas and Bittersweet Ending in them.
James Nicoll indulges in this often when posting reviews. Particularly when reviewing older sci-fi books with tons of Values Dissonance. Most fans enjoy Mystery Science Theater for its idealistic and fun atmosphere, despite the central tenet being one of mocking, sometimes quite brutally, bad movies.
The fact that it is of such quality means that it rarely goes from "funny-mean" to just "mean", though it became more common to do so in later seasons. Stephen Fry now hosts QI , a show dedicated to "quite interesting" facts or sometimes factoids which could be described as a kind of intellectual Room Fluffy. The team behind QI now also make a radio show named The Museum of Curiosity, into which people are literally able to put a selection of their favourite things.
Stephanie Lagrossa had played twice already. One time her tribe lost every challenge and she was the only one left in her team. The second time, she was in the final two. Grumpy Old Men and its forerunner Grumpy Old Women take full advantage of the assumed tetchiness of the middle-aged-U. Mind you, it keeps its tongue firmly in its cheek as it does so. Titus is all about this.
The Doctor: I bet I get some very interesting readings from my screwdriver when I get it back from the shark in your bedroom. The Doctor: Oh fine, focus on that! The new made-over incarnation of Doctor Who attracts snark from a significant minority of older people who fondly remember the original s and s series. Classic Who can get this a lot. For example, a lot of people think the companions were one-dimensional women whose main quality was screaming a lot. However many companions had strong and interesting personalities and people basically just remember the worst moments and qualities of companions.
Much darker than where my sister is. Willingly walking deeper into darkness cannot help her at all. Only the light Mulder: [disgustedly] Oh, enough! Why is it so much easier for you to run around trying to get even than just expressing to her how you feel?
I expect more from you. Dana expects more. And so will you. Mind you, this is usually stuff that the average person probably would enjoy. Aside from his worries about security and privacy , he questions the purported "romance" the app aims to inspire by discovering close encounters between a couple.
Onur: So maybe we once stood in the same queue to pay the bill. Is that supposed to be romantic? Music There are a lot of bands who made a career out of writing gloomy, depressing or melancholic lyrics. Especially in the Goth genre. Nirvana : All their albums are depressing. Even Kurt Cobain finally killed himself.
Portishead : Dummy and their other records are all very gloomy. Poverty, AIDS, bigotry, violence, environmental destruction New Media Not Always Right thrives on showing the bad behavior of customers, though they also have a section for the bad behavior of employees Not Always Working and a section for good behavior of customers Not Always Hopeless.
