Math Students Add 7, -;- by 5, T n c etc. Chinese? No, it ' s new math, everyone ' s favorite class! (?) It ' s where you learn to subtract, multiply, square root, pi, and wear down your pencil and brain while trying to discover how far Joe walked in three hours. Mrs. Egley ' s math class concentrates on a new bit of knowledge The seventh graders worked on such things as properties and math sentences while the eighth had to tackle a congruent triangle and story problem proofs — not to mention dif- ferent bases Mr Desper certainly has jn attentive class Algebra classes dealt with equations, vari- ables, and axioms as tne fundamentals of algebra and ninth grade math classes did too. Most Portage wiz- ards turned out a ter- rific string drawing and they really worked hard, these mathe- maticians. Eat your heart out, Einstein. Scribbling out their math problems, ninth graders concentrate on posing for the camera

Learn in Spite of Thennselves The Portage freshmen this year started out their Eng- lish classes with their noses in several novels and short stories, as well as the play " Requiem for a Heavy- weight. " They enjoyed a month or two of grammar (enjoyed?), by memorizing N-V-N-N patterns, pre- dicates, usage and irregular verbs, taking time out for the Lions Club speech con- test and several essays.

and Are Taught by 6 " f Neal McKeeman Bob Denny As you probably noticed, Mr. McKeeman floated from class to class this year. Why? So that Portage might have a math lab! What ' s a math lab? A room where you mix numbers and in- vent magic solutions? Well, not really. It ' s 151, a puz- zle solving, geometric figure making, game doing lab. Kids could get out of class- es and study hall to go down to the math lab and actually have fun doing math! Any- thing that makes math fun has got to be good. And the math lab certainly was. Didn ' t make It this time, did you, Mr. McKeeman ?! Mr. McKeeman, just trying to get his profile in the yearbook again. 33
