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.
I know this statement is shocking. Some of you may feel that I have announced the end of the civilization as we know it. How in the world will people learn math without the latest and greatest math textbook. The answer is simple. The same way people have always learned math prior to the modern education system, by doing math as they go about their everyday lives. You may ask "Is that possible?" "Would it work?" I believe so. Its the reason I made this statement when I was asked if my new book, "Math is Childs Play" was going to be a Math Textbook. But in all fairness, lets look at both sides, school math versus everyday math. First lets look at school math. I have been studying of late the topic of Math Anxiety. Increasing number of people profess to hate math, to be no good at math, to be anxious about doing basic math. These same people were taught math in our public schools. When did this situation of math anxiety start? Who knows for sure? But whats significant is that its increasing, not decreasing. Its increasing despite the modern education system, despite New Math and the latest teaching methods, despite all the money and energy that has been put towards the problem. Just for the record, I found a book "Mathematics; A Human Endeavor" by Harold R. Jacobs copyrighted in 1970 which in its preface the author mentions the failure of New Math in the schools. A book from 1964, titled "Mathematics for Elementary Teachers" by Ralph Crouch and George Baldwin which was written to teach math to elementary teacher who found themselves expected to teach math although they had no training in math.
The best part of the Middle school learning is that the students are given a lot of assignments, which helps the student in understanding the concepts to a greater extent. Most of the assignments include literary essays and this serves as a straight forward process for the students. This is because by now they are totally aware of the five paragraph essay formats that help the child in understanding and reproducing the same in the form of an introduction paragraph, followed by three body paragraphs and finally a conclusion. Such essays need to normally range between one or two pages in length. Here are a few tips to help the students in writing a literary essay: • The students need to begin the essay with an introductory paragraph. The thesis statement associated with the main theme of the essay has to be included in the introduction. This should also be supported with a few details that can support the thesis. One should ensure that the last sentence in the introductory paragraph should pave a clear way of transition from the introductory paragraph to the body paragraphs.
Every parent wants to get the best for our kids, and if that means getting a math tutor to improve their below averaged grades, then so be it. Then, in what ways you can choose a good 4th-6th grade math tutor? You may already know that it is hard to find a job nowadays and just imagine what the world will be like after your kid grows up and reached the age where they need to work and look after themselves? Im sure you can; that child of yours is going to have to have a degree, minimum, to even be competitive with the other candidates; so doesnt it make sense to strengthen up those weak subjects as early as possible in their academic career? To start with, when looking for a 6th grade math tutor, you have to work out whether your child responds best to a male or a female teacher; it could make all the difference when it comes to them actually paying attention, and learning what they need to. How do you know which they respond to best?
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.
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.
