Simplifying Our Techniques . . . MATHEMATICS is a science of exact relationship. ALGEBRA, GEOMETRY, TRIGONOMETRY, SIMPLE MATHEMATICS, all im¬ portant, make up the mathematical field at Andrew Lewis. Mathematics is the exact science of comprehending the laws handed down to us by some of the greatest scholars known to our generation. Eighth grade, Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are struggling with one mathematical problem or another. As they advance to a higher level, the struggle becomes more difficult. Even though students may be exceptionally brilliant, or intelligent, they always find some¬ thing to look forward to, something unexplained, something unknown for some eager young person who wishes to accomplish a little more and to give to the generations following a better understanding of mathematics. The study of mathematics teaches us to solve our financial prob lems, our necessary problems, and thus, leads to a happier more confident life.

Experimenting and Exploring Paul K. Coffman Miss Leslie V. Watkins Mrs. Edna M. Weeks Miss Pauline Webb General Science Biology, Physics General Science Chemistry, Biology Onward and upward on trails yet unblazed, into horizons unknown, and fields unheard of, talking their own strange language of formulas and symbols, are the SCIENTISTS, seeking ,testing, developing, working, and finally proving. Theory with no proof, then work with no sleep, make up their lives. No one group of persons has done so much for our modern civilization as have these. Boom! Crash! These are the amateur scientists at Andrew Lewis at work. The experiments that never quite work, but yet plant the roots of interest in the minds of the students. A person never reaches the height of his knowledge in science because it is always one jump ahead of him. There is always something unexplained, or some new process yet to be invented waiting for the initiative of some genius or hardworking scientist. The foundation for all higher science is GENERAL SCIENCE. It touches each of the other three lightly and establishes the basis for the more difficult. BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, and PHYSICS fol¬ low, all equally important in their various fields. The importance of each to the individual students varies as they prepare for their different fields of work. Science tests one’s intellect and reasoning ability. To understand fully the principals and to be able to use them takes concentrated study and clear logic. It awakens creative ability. Only after hard work, through study and conse¬ crated endeavor does one become a successful scientist. Mil r ml ji I ■
