My plan for the course (subject to midcourse corrections) is to divide it into nine parts (one for each chapter in the texbook EGT) and end the semester with each student doing a presentation in class. For each chapter we will begin with a quick overview and then work on the problems in groups with each group presenting some solutions to the entire class. Prepare for each class by studying the appropriate sections in the text and working on the problems. The problems will then be handed in for grading and in the class period after they are returned, there will be a quiz on the chapter. At the end of the semester each student will be assigned a topic. The student will prepare an age appropriate lesson on the topic and present it to the class. (The class will play the role of elementary school students.)
A chart (that won't reproduce on my computer) shows that 41% of Senn High students today were born outside the U.S.; North America 258; Asia 145; Africa 118; Europe 34; and South America 13.Assuming that none of today's Senn High students were born in Australia, Antarctica, on islands, or on the high seas, how many students attend Senn today?
