SpilyayTymoo Warm Springs, Oregon June 25, 1993 PAGE 5 Provide children with learning 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 following: 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?" Taxi Fare l , Trips don't have to be the long distance kind to try travel math.

Study guides and text books will be available for check-out on and 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. Anonymous Mt. View Clinic expanding office hours The Mountain View Family Care Clinic is expanding weekday office hours to include lunch times and early evening hours.

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 traveled. 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? Preparing for Kindergarten Kindergarten is a big and im portant step for your child.

"Having a son or daughter pre-ad-mittcd to college also reassures par ents that their goal of a college edu cation for their child has not been set aside."

Bill, to their class of 1998 and even Class of 2001. So far, Amy recruiters have referred more than 4,000 young people to CONAP. Once a new recruit has enrolled in CONAP, the college has the oppor tunity to monitor the college courses the recruit may choose to take while on active duty. They can then tell the recruit whether a course fulfills one of their requirements, so the recruit doesn't waste time taking unneces sary courses. Most soldiers with deferred ad mission indicate they will pursue a four-year degree in a specific area like communications or business. Colleges may not enroll them in a degree program right away because they may change their minds while fulfilling their military commitment They are, however, encouraged to lake basic courses in the meantime.
