### Subject: Professional Development

When is a good time to take risks? How will I know if the risk is too big?

While taking risks may sound daunting, taking intelligent, calculated risks is undoubtedly less so. By balancing the consequences of what might go wrong with our ability to handle and overcome these consequences, we can better focus on a realistic cost-benefit analysis of our own decision making.

### Subject: Writing

What is the role of the audience in writing? Why is it so important?

Identifying an audience of your piece is one of the most important aspects of writing. Your audience determines the tone (which words you use to convey a particular emotion) and content (how much and what information you need to tell them) of a paper.

### Subject: Pre-Algebra

Katie is the Manager of a restaurant and worked for 5 days this week. At the end of the week, she made 100 dollars. If Katie made the same amount of money each day that she worked, what equation would help us find out how much money Katie made each day.

If we are looking to determine how much money Katie made each day, we need to take Katie's daily earnings and add that number 5 times, one for each day that she worked. This is the same as multiplying by 5. Let's say the number of hours that Katie worked each day is "H." We need to find H+H+H+H+H, or 5 times H. If we know 5 times H equals 100 dollars, we can use division to solve it. Because division in the opposite of multiplication, we can divide 100 by 5. This will give us $20. We can check our answer by doing 20+20+20+20+20 or 20 times 5.
