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
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

Students who plan to enter the field of
engineering, science, or aviation as their life
work discover that these occupations depend on
math. In order to meet the needs of students
preparing for these fields of work, elementary
and intermediate algebra, plane and solid
geometry and trigonometry are offered. The
study of mathematical instruments is offered
in the Math Club.
A new feature in elementary math was the
use of mimeographed units of work.
In trigonometry class, prospective engineers study
In the Business Department the characteristic
of self-reliance is developed through activities
in and out of the classroom. For example girls
in secretarial practice classes served as secre
taries to various teachers and in the school
ofiice, thus gaining actual experience working as
stenographers. Students in retailing classes
worked in local stores for a minimum of fifteen
hours a week for which they received one unit
of school credit.

The students conducted their own classes,
found and presented material on topics which
the class, by voting, decided were important.
Self-expression was encouraged. Cooperation
and tolerance of other people's opinions were
practiced, for cooperation in small groups

classes made a careful analysis of the U. N. O.

In order to familiarize themselves with other
countries an intensive study of maps was made
by the ninth grade. In the seventh and eighth
grades civic and national interest was stimu-
lated. A seventh grade group made a trip in
October to the Medina Reservoir.
To aid the use of language as a bridge to
permanent peace, three years, each, of Latin
and French are offered to the students. Under-
standing of other peoples is particularly
stressed. A study of Latin enables the student
to understand the English language better, to
learn other languages, and to study the methods
used by the Romans in dealing with conquered
countries so that we may avoid their mistakes
in our treatment of Germany and Japan. A
knowledge of French is valuable in obtaining
a position representing our country or its in-
Two special projects carried out in the
French Department were the correspondence of

Algeria and a night school course in simple
French for adults.

Keen observation is especially stressed in
the Science Department. Through experiments
and demonstrations the students are given an
opportunity, not only to learn certain laws ot
nature, chemistry, and physics, but also to test
and improve themselves in observation by
recording what they observe in notebooks.
Neatness, accuracy, the reaching of logical con-
clusions, and the application of reading in
science to concrete action are other character-

Teaching methods used are discussion,
demonstration, lecture, laboratory, and note-
book work. Films are also used to emphasize
and supplement textbook instruction. In class
discussions post-war problems of health, soil
conservation, natural resources, and atomic
energy are stressed. Parts played by other
countries in the development of various
branches of science and the 'need for world
cooperation in advancing and increasing the
knowledge of science are pointed out.
The Iunior and Senior Science Clubs are
connected with this department. Special pro-
jects have been carried out in reading various
instruments of measure and in microscope work.
Is there a student in Medina High School
who has not spent some time in either the
School or the Public Library? If so, he is
missing a great deal of fun and l'A's,' on his
report card! At some time during the year
every class has been given some homework
necessitating a visit to the library for research
and supplementary reading. The library ful-
fills this need by having on hand books per-
taining to all subjects.

Many books for entertainment are to be
found in the library. The Library Department
publicizes new additions in this field by snappy
book reviews in the "M.H.S. News" and by
the Bulletin Board.
The aims of the School Library are to en-
courage leisure reading and to help the student
to learn how to find information through use
of the library tools. Now, however, both
libraries are urging more than ever that people
of the United States' acquaint themselves
through books with peoples abroad.
All students make extensive use of the School Library.
