sTudenTs of Today will assume The responsibiliTies of
Tomorrow wiTh courage ancl deTerminaTion.

sTudy of living organisms. Second year biology is
available To Those wiTh a sincere desire 'To increase

Math, Science Students
Catching a glimpse of the physics class from the hall reveals
Mr. Deloris Martin lecturing to his class.
Mr. James Yutzy explains mathematical prob-lems to his seventh
grade math class with the aid of conic sections.
Prepare to Meet Needs
Mathematics was one of man's earliest concepts.
Today it is a p-art of everyday liteg thus, it has be-
come an invaluable subiect and is drilled into each
and every student at Highland.
Seventh and eighth graders are challenged by frac-
tions, decimals, and simple algebraic expressions.
Aids to learning range from conic sections to potato
halves. Freshmen choose either Algebra I or General
Math depending upon their curricula. Algebra Il stu-
dents seek answers to puzzling problems containing
unknown variable quantities.
Plane Geometry's main instruments are a straight
edge and a compass. These tools are essential when
dealing with plane figures on paper and the black-
board. Trigonometry, a one semester course, proposes
relations between the angles and the sides of trian-
gles. Solid Geometry is a one semester course which
treats the three-dimensional figure as a whole.
Every course taken in mathematics puts the stu-
dent that much closer to understanding the complex-
ities and vastness of this world. Basic principles of
mathematics provide a solid foundation on which to
add all knowledge gained throughout life.
Crowded conditions forced trigonometry class into art room.

Highlanders receive a broad background in the field l
of social studies, American and'lndiana History pro-
vides seventh and eighth graders with a better under-
standing ofthe United States and the people who built
it. Mr. Irvin Cash's United States History classes were
further enlightened by viewing "How the West Was
Won" on the cinema screen. World History correlates
the growth of our young nation with the struggles
encountered by the rest of the world.
Countries, cities, and large rivers are more easily
located when students study geography. Atlases, text-
books, globes, and salt maps contribute to the value
of the course. Film strips, movies, and tape recordings
supplemented textbooks and lectures delivered by Mr.
Cash in his government classes. Mr. William O'Neal
organized a "Gov Club" in his government classes in
order to demonstrate democratic proceedings.
Social problems originating with ways to make a
living are offered for discussion and evaluation by
Highland's Applied Economic students. Sociology also
deals with economics but more important with the
scientific investigation of man's behavior in society.
Muscatatuck, a state institution for the mentally
retarded, was visited by the psychology students of
Mrs. Wanda Fredericks and Mr. O'Neal. Having studied
the subiect, classic examples were observed in the in-
stitution and will long be remembered. Psychology
class was the scene of great discussion when hypnotic
consultant Kent Griffth presented a demonstration of
the effects of hypnosis. Even the most stalwart of
disbelievers were amazed and delighted at the antics
of the hypnotized students.
Social Studies Broaden Students' Background
Myron Noble refers to an atlas in World History class.
Mr. Kent Griffth, hypnotic consultant, shows the effects of hypnosis on Highland psychology students..
