### Subject: Study Skills

What is one of the first steps you need to take when perfecting your study skills?

Students need to first create a schedule for their study times. If students do not have set study times (a bit like a meeting that a boss has scheduled), students will choose to do other activities instead of studying. Setting out a clear study schedule not only gives students a visual plan of when an activity needs to happen, but it gives them control over their schedule thus putting them in charge of their studying at a time convenient for the student.

Elapsed Time: Jessica gos to school from 8:30 AM- 2:00 PM. After school, she has tutoring from 3:00- 4:05. How much time does Jessica spend at school and at tutoring, in minutes?

Counting by hours, we know that Jessica spends 6 full hours at school (8:30, 9:30, 10:30...etc). She also spends 30 minutes past those 6 hours (1:30- 2:00). In total, she spent 6 and a half hours at school. Since there are 60 minutes in an hour, I can multiply her total number of hours spent (6) times the number of minutes in an hour (60) to get 360 minutes. Because she spent 30 minutes past the 360 minutes, I can add 360 minutes + 30 minutes to get 390 minutes. By counting up, I know that Jessica spent one full hour in tutoring (3:00- 4:00) and 5 minutes (4:00- 4:05). I know that one hour has 60 minutes in it, so 3:00-4:00 is 60 minutes. I can add those 60 minutes to the five minutes to get 65 minutes total in tutoring. To find out how many minutes she spent at school and at tutoring, I can add the total number of minutes together. 390 + 65= 455.

### Subject: US History

Describe the economic situation of the United States in the 1920s.

The economic situation of the 1920s was thriving. Because World War I had just ended, the American people were in high spirits and ready to switch over from military production into consumer production for the people. Common home goods such as washing machines and radios became popular during this time, and cars (like the Ford Model- T) were coming into popularity as well.
