Accuracy MATHEMATICS In elementary and advanced math, accuracy is stressed. Through problems and exercises based on true-to-life questions and on formulas connected with new scientific discoveries, the student is given the opportunity to improve his accuracy and increase his speed in solving problems. The usual method employed in the math classes is explanation of new work, followed by class work on the lesson at hand with in- dividual help by the teacher for those needing it. Previous work is continually reviewed through daily quizzes. Typing copy for the H. S. News" is the weekly job of the secretarial practice class. l l Laura G. King Melvin H.
