Hey Math Friends! November’s here, and it’s bringing more than just cooler weather and hot chocolate— Pull up a chair and get ready for some good news that’s as exciting as the first snowfall of the season.
First up, a big cheer for Busola! She has passed the medical math exam. Sasha, you deserve a cheer too for your variety of teaching skills with Busola!
Congratulations to those who completed the Heart and Stroke Foundation-accredited Standard First Aid course at PALS. Our next course is already full, and if you missed out, call the office, and ask for Jalpa. She’ll help you sign up for the next available First Aid course.
Welcome new volunteer, Rob, we’re super excited to have you on board and can’t wait to see the awesome things you’ll do with our learners.
Our next Math test preparation workshop is planned for November 26. There will be a simulated test of four hours with a discussion on the given questions afterwards. Call or email Erum to register.
A new set of science classes for the apprenticeship exam is planned for the winter session. This course will be held at our main office every Saturday from 10 AM to 12 PM. The second science group will begin in January and will run until the first week of March. For registration, please get in touch with Erum at the PALS office.
The Rapid Trade Math course is a 15-week comprehensive math group class. From January until April 2024, it will be held at our PALS office every Saturday, from 1 to 3 PM. There is room for 6 – 8 learners who are preparing for their trade entrance exam. Due to a limited number of seats call Erum for the registration.
Financial Literacy is a topic that is always been asked for. The program we are running right now discusses topics like savings, budgeting, and an understanding of needs and wants. What are you looking for in terms of financial learning? Do you want information on currency, bank accounts, taxes, mortgage or simply writing a check? Let us know your thoughts by calling us or emailing Erum at [email protected]. Tutors are most welcome to bring up the ideas.
And now, for a bit of math fun! Have you ever seen a number that reads the same forwards and backwards? They’re called palindromes. Here’s a cool fact—when you multiply 111,111,111 by itself, you get a huge palindrome: 12,345,678,987,654,321! Neat, right? Keep your eyes open for more fun numbers and math puzzles this month. Every math problem you solve is like finding a hidden treasure. So, keep on counting and uncovering the joy in numbers!
