What you may know is that my mother bought me my first underwear at thirteen (a milestone I celebrated by putting that thing on and pulling it up to make sure my peers noticed that social promotion-that is once she told me that the tag goes on the back). You also may be aware of how she came to visit me at Kangundo Hospital, where I was admitted suffering from Malaria, and then she removed her shoes and handed them to me-I was 17. What is astonishing is how much my mother, a sixth-grade dropout, influenced my life-a revelation I am going through since she came to visit my family early this month. It is our first time to see her in eleven years.
However, even schools with limited access to computers and other sophisticated teaching devices can provide students with educational experiences through school science projects. Electronic kits and other learning tools often allow students of all ages to improve learning through involvement in various projects. Critical thinking skills may even be enhanced in the absence of sophisticated teaching aids, as different options must be considered when purchasing of additional materials is not an option. The originality of the projects is becoming one of the most important considerations for judges at science fairs, so planning and thinking skills must be utilized for maximum learning to occur.
6th grade science projects are not expected to be original; it is perfectly okay to do an experiment that has been done before. Some schools start doing science fairs in sixth grade, but they are not usually too competitive as their purpose is really to get the students interested. The judges simply want to see that you have put the effort into your project and made up a nice presentation for it. Still, there are endless ideas of topics you can pick. One fun idea for 6th grade science projects is to see how well people can identify different smells when blind folded. This project is fairly simple. All you need is a blindfold and a few items with different smells. A few ideas might be vanilla, cinnamon, coffee beans, vinegar, and so on. There are many, many different things you can use. To do this project, you will need a volunteer or two. It would be a good idea to make up a chart in advance so you can record your results. Blindfold your volunteer and put each scent under their nose one at a time, and record whether or not they were able to identify what the scent was. Originality is not the key factor here at this age. The judges just want to see that you are capable of performing an experiment on your own, writing up a report on it and presenting your finding in an organized, easy to understand way. There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing an experiment that has already been done, as long as you try to make it your own.
After their set, the 7th grade took the stage. They played more difficult music, had fewer missed notes and longer stretches that they played in unison. You could hear the difference a lot more hours of hard work made. Next up was the 8th grade. After 3 years of playing together, they played more complex arrangements and sounded ready to move on to the high school level. The growth from 6th to 7th to 8th grade was an interesting process to observe. So, what does this have to do with business? When we started our personal property inventory service years ago, we missed a lot of beats. We (my husband and I) werent often in sync with each other and had to start over many times while creating our processes and procedures. The same when we created our turnkey business package (a business to help others start their own personal property inventory business). Do-overs were the norm for a while. But now, after practicing, working together, stretching ourselves into bigger and better, we play a pretty sweet tune.
With $9.3 million from the San Antonio Independent School Districts 1997 Bond Program, improvements at the school included renovations to classrooms in the three-story school built in 1915, the auditorium and gymnasium. A building which previously served as a vocational shop was remodeled into a library. New construction added a wing with classrooms, a kitchen and cafeteria to this San Antonio school. Two courtyards, a central tower housing an elevator and a stairwell connect the old with the new for accessibility. With a total square-footage of 73,692, the facility accommodates 450 students including those in the Life Strides and in the Early Childhood programs.
Who actually uses advanced math in their everyday lives? Well, students do. This might seem to be obvious, but it is worth pointing out that doing well on the SAT or ACT requires a fair amount of algebra and geometry. (These subjects arent really advanced math, but they are advanced compared the math that many adults use.) These tests give high school math a certain amount of practical importance, even for people who plan on majoring in liberal arts and entering a mathematics-free profession. Engineers, many kinds of scientist (both pure and applied), computer programmers, and actuaries are a few examples of people that actually do use a great deal of math. There are plenty of other math-intensive careers, but the truth is, most people who dont want to do trigonometry, calculus, or statistics as adults will never be held back by that preference.
