Visited Middle & High School Math Classes, At Child's Way Charter School. 1/16/2013 Question 5

840 stickers were given to 42 children. 2/3 of the children were boys, and each of them received the same number of stickers. Each girl received twice as many stickers as each boy. How many stickers did each girl receive?

Solution: 42 children, 2/3 boys, that means: 2/3(42) = 28 boys & 14 girls

Let S = the # of stickers received by boys

Let 2S = the # of stickers receive by girls 

840 = 28S + 14(2S)

840 = 28S + 28S

840 =…

Visited Middle & High School Math Classes, At Child's Way Charter School. 1/16/2013 Question 6

Mrs. Suarez bought 3 pairs of jeans and 5 shirts for $441.00. If each pair of jeans cost 2/3 as much as each shirt, 

a) What was the price of each pair of jeans? 

b) What was the price of each shirt? 

Solution: Let S be the price of shirts, and J be the price of the jeans. 

You are told: 3J + 5S = $441.00

                     J = (2/3)S 

Plug in J into the first equations: 

                    3(2/3)S + 5S =…

I will work for / I will not work for

I would like a school that produces results in tandem with the love of learning.

I don’t want results that hinder the love of learning.

I don’t want a school that is loved but without results. 

That’s the trick of setting up environments. The balance of holding student’s accountable...

Sadly, they always are, unless I upload them to Vimeo. Vimeo also has a 500 MB limit on videos, and the end of the year film? 539 MB *sigh* I'll try my best to find an alternative, its just that I don't want to upgrade the Vimeo account since it's $60/year and I only use it for the Ning. Thanks for the book update, though, its good to hear some good news today, my summer has started off on the wrong foot, thats for sure.

It didn't upload to Youtube because they considered it 'copyright' so my link to Youtube didn't work. How should I upload it?

Hi Travis. I am born and raised. Do you know Philadelphia?

I'm writing from the airport -- taking off on an extended vacation. When I get back, I'd like to catch up here. Have a great semester coming up!
