Travel Math
Dear Parent:
"How much farther? When will
wc gel there?" Sound familiar? Be
fore you automatically rcspond,"Not
far. Soon." Consider what a perfect
opportunity you have for involving
your middle grader in doing some
practical math.
Travel is full of such math oppor
tunities for example, dealing with
distances and speeds, figuring gas
mileage, comparing fuel costs and
comparing travel routes. Suggest
keeping a small notebook (with a
pencil attached) in the car, ready for
travel calculations.
Ceiling to Uncle ppb'a
When you pose a travel math
challenge for your child, be ready to
work along with him or her to get the
most math mileage out of the situa
tion. Try breaking down problems
into steps. Then walk through each
part together, settling on the answer
to one part before going on to the
next. In that way you can catch
problems your child may be having
early in the process.
For example, in that "how much
farther" situation you might try the
The sign wc just passed said 29
miles to Supcrcity. We'll exit there,
and Uncle Bob's is about 3 miles
beyond. How will that be in all?
"Now, on the highway we can
travel at about 35 miles per hour,
almost a mile a minute. (With pencil
and paper, your child may want fig
ure out that it's actually .92 of a mile
per minute) If we have 29 miles to
go, about how many minutes will
that take us?
"The last three miles we'll have to
go slower each mile will take two
minutes. How long will that take?"

Trips don't have to be the long
distance kind to try travel math. Sug

The Man in the Glass
When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
and the world makes you king for a day,
Just go to a mirror and look at yourself,
and see what that man has to say.
For it isn't your father or mother or wife,
whose judgment upon you must pass.
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life,
is the one staring back from the glass.
Some people may think you're a straight-shooting chum,
and call you a wonderful guy.
But the man in the glass says you're only a bum,
if you can't look nim straight in the eye.
He's the fellow to please, never mind all the rest,
for he's with you, clear up to the end.
And you've passed the most dangerous, difficult test,
if the man in the glass is your friend.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of life,
and get pats on your back as you pass.
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears,
if you've cheated the man in the glass.

mileage data for those regular "taxi"
routes you take around the area.
Help your child prepare a record
sheet with columns labeled "place,"
"beginning reading", and "mileage."
Fill in the names of places you travel
to frequently.
As you head out for one of these
destinations, your child can record
the car's odometer figure in the "be
ginning" column. When you arrive,
have your child take the odometer
reading again. Then he or she can
find the differences between these
two figures dealing with decimals
in the process to find the miles
In a similar way, help your child
complete the chart. This pool of
mileage data can be drawn upon to
settle all sort of math situations. For
example: If we travel today to Places
A, B and C, what will the total mileage
be? If our family "taxi" charged $.25
a mile, how much would the trip cost
a passenger?
What do you estimate to be the
average miles traveled per day in
going to places on the chart? How
docs your estimate compare with the
actual average mileage over a five
day period?

Your child's teachers arc aware

in the following ways:
Talk with your children about
school and what they will learn, the

learning is an exciting and enjoyable

Ten ways to raise a delinquent
1. Begin at infancy to give the
child everything he wants. In this
way he will grow up to believe the
world owes him a living.
2. When he picks up bad words
laugh at him. This will make him
think he is cute.
3. Never give him any spiritual
training. Wait until he is 21, then let
him decide for himself.
4. Pick up everything he leaves
lying around: books, shoes and
clothes. Do everything for him so
that he will be experienced in
throwing all responsibility on others.
5. Quarrel with your spouse fre
quently in his presence. In this way
