Wondering . . . Beginning To Use Formulas . . . Mrs. D. Chick Miss Frances Hurt Mrs. Julia Hylton Mrs. L. Jennings Miss M. J. Maxwell The aims of EIGHTH GRADE SCIENCE are to present to the pupil, in an appealing, but general way, the tacts and principles neces¬ sary to give him an understanding and appreciation ot his environment, to help him adapt himself to the modern world in which he lives, to cultivate his skills in problem solving and to train him to work and think scientifically. There is little in life that is not affected by science and careful, accurate observation in¬ creases the ability to do any job better no matter what it is. The course explores the fields of meteorology, astronomy, chemistry, electricity, biology, health, and con¬ servation. Its aims are to encourage and stimulate the youth of today to keep on the upward path of life. Another subject which greatly aids the struggling youths on one of life’s greatest climbs is mathe¬ matics. The purpose of EIGHTH GRADE MATHEMATICS is to convey to pupils an understanding and appreci¬ ation of the role of mathematics in many phases of modern life, and to develop some degree of skill in solving real problems that arise. Fundamental skills of preceding grades are reviewed; concepts of elementary plane geometry are intro¬ duced; formulas for finding the area and volume of simple figures are studied; percentage and its uses, insurance, banking, taxes, invest¬ ments, and measurements including the rule of Pythagoras are empha¬ sized. Preparation for academic courses is integrated with practical, every¬ day mathematics.

Learning To Belong . . . The Eighth Grade is the founda¬ tion grade in the five-year high school system. The ENGLISH course is divided into four paits. Library science is given in the fall to acquaint the new pupils with the A. L. H. S. Libraiy. Fundamentals of grammar are reviewed and studied further. The spring semester in¬ cludes Greek and Roman mythology which serves as a backgiound for literature and history. Selected poems and stories are read for entertainment as well as for ap¬ preciation of good literature. In this grade, the student should begin, at least, to appreciate his heritage, the English language, his language. SOCIAL SCIENCE in the ' Eighth Grade is a combination of history, geography , civics, and current events. Global facts, gained from books, newspapers, and films, fur¬ nish background material for seeing our country as a part of a world community. This concept of our country is introduced by a unit called Global Facts, which is followed by a detailed study of the leading nations of the world. In such studies the history, geography, and government of the country is considered and brought up-to-date by use of the current material found in our newspaper. Mrs. M. Chapman Mrs. E.
