Students Solve Many Types of Problems This year many of the seventh and eighth grade stu- dents were taught modern math instead of the tra- ditional general math. The students in the X and Y lanes studied the modern techniques while the stu- dents in the Z lanes studied the traditional method of math. The students of the ninth grade were taught either modern algebra or general math. In algebra they tried to analyze and understand the problems instead of just solving them. They also learned to apply a meaning to each problem, thereby obtaining a basic knowledge for future use in their math studies. In general math the ninth graders reviewed and studied traditional math. The course was a review of the general math presented in the seventh and eighth grade plus many additional and practical math techniques. In general math the students reviewed many of the basic skills of math and also learned some new ones. 3 7 8 9 in 5 £»»30 ■53637 3839 40 K 46 47 48 49 50 55 56 57 58 5960 B5 66 67 68 69 70 757677 78 79 80 858687 88 89 90 95 96 97 98 99 BO )nly ninth graders are eligible to take algebra and only those inth graders who have received above average grades in sventh and eighth grade math.

General science is studied by seventh graders for one semester. For the first few weeks, health is studied. The prin- ciples of gravity are thoroughly ana- lyzed. Particular emphasis is placed on the metric system, as it may soon be- come the universal system of measure- ment. Other units examined include fire, astronomy, and investigation of chem- ical changes. Eighth graders learn the scientific method and apply it throughout the year. The analysis of energy, heat, and electricity is emphasized. The principles and uses of machines are also thor- oughly covered during the school year. The freshman general science students make an extensive study of living things, discussing the formation, structure, and function of plants and animals. The stu- dents enter the field of geology in their study of the earth. The pupils examine the atmosphere and ponder the mys- teries of the universe during the second semester. Experiments make up an important part of the study of science. These eighth pupils are creating a partial vacuum by the use of heat. grade Classes Increase Knowledge of Science periods are devoted to laboratory experiments. Each uscope, an essential part of the experiments. Biology is the science of life. One of the main objectives of the biology course is to develop concepts and understanding of the wonders of basic life processes. As a foundation on which to build, sci- entific methods are studied first. The students put these methods to use in laboratory periods during the year. Utilizing the knowledge of cell structure and function, the freshmen then attack the study of plants and animals, their structure and function. Genetics, the science of heredity, is presented to ex- plain the normal and abnormal char- acteristics exhibited in organisms. In- vertebrates, vertebrates, microbiology, and multicellular plants are later dis- cussed. In studying ecology the students gain an understanding of how plants, animals, and their surroundings affect each other. The students conclude the year by studying conservation.

The students pictured above, who are in Mr. Hines ' class, have been studying world affairs and are making many interesting comparisons on the map. This is just one of the many map activities they do throughout the year. Seventh graders at Franklin for their social studies requirement take geography. They study several aspects of many coun- tries and learn their locations throughout the world. The eighth grade history classes study United States history. They try to learn the complete history from the beginning up to the present. The teachers ' main concern is to teach stu- dents the important facts that made history. Students Study the World, Sing, Create General music is studied by all seventh and eighth grad- ers for one semester. Much time in these classes is de- voted to singing and listening. But time is also spent in learning the use of rhythm instruments, basic music theory, and folk songs. Seventh, eighth, and ninth graders are enrolled in art classes. The art students work on drawings, study of color, paper sculptures, lettering, block printing, painting with water colors, and using tempera paint. Pupils of all three grades work basically with the same materials, but the eighth and ninth graders explore problems of art more thoroughly. The seventh groders ore i songs, os the -. of study. the process of learning new r - ' tion with a new unit Clay can be used to make many things, as these eighth graders are discovering by personally making some designed cups.
