In the education field there is a large demand for classroom supplies. Most teachers receive a little financial help, but it rarely covers the cost for the whole year. With this in mind, many teachers need to purchase school supplies with their own money. Living on a teacher’s salary many times means watching every dollar. If a teacher needs to spend his or her own money on supplies for their room, their going to shop around for the best deal out there.

A week before the start of school there are two school and office supply stores offering sales. Apple (“A”) Office Supplies is offering a 20% off sale on complete purchases. Banana (“B”) School Supply is offering a sale in which there is a 25% discount for every dollar amount spent above $20.00. Using two different algebraic equations I will evaluate and compare the two cost options. After solving the systems of equations I will depict the situation graphically using separate amounts of total funds spent in range from $20-$300.00.

X= Dollar amount before discount
Y= Dollar amount after discount

Store “A” 20% off total sales 0.8X = Y
The dollar amount before the discount is multiplied by 80% (.80). This is algebraically the use of the substitution method. The dollar amount before the discount is substituted for X, and then multiplied by .80 which in turn will give you the answer to Y. Y is the final sale price.

Store “B” 25% off every dollar (X-20).75 + 20 = YX >20
Amount spent above $20.00.75X – 15 + 20 = Y
.75X + 5 = Y
. The dollar amount before the discount is substituted for X. This is algebraically the use of the substitution method, then X is multiplied by .75 and .75 is multiplied by negative 20 using distribution. The like terms of .75 multiplied by the substituted value for X, negative 15, and 20 are added which in turn will give you the answer to Y. Because the discount does not take effect until the purchase is over...

...Before Common Core Curriculum the Arts known as music, theater, dance and visual art were considered beneficial subjects and not essential to the learning process (Jacobs, 1999). During the research analysis of Critical Links in 2002: Learning in the Arts and Student Academic and Social Development “provided evidence for enhancing learning and achievement as well as positive social outcomes when the arts were integral to students’ learning experiences” lawmakers started looking at the Arts in education more seriously (Burns, 2003, p. 5). Writer Victoria Jacobs explains, “Arts in elementary schools have often been separated from the core curriculum and instead, offered as enrichment activities that are considered beneficial but not essential” (Jacobs, 1999, p. 2). Fine Arts have often been phased out of the curriculum based on this thinking, budget cuts and a lack of teacher knowledge on how to incorporate the fine arts into academic lessons. For this reason it is necessary to provide a description of the four art disciplines; dance, theater, music, and visual arts. A brief summary of the content that could be taught within each discipline as well an example of specific academic skills that could be taught using each of the four disciplines will be discussed. Experts in the Arts and Academic fields will be used to support described examples.
Dance is characterized as a form of art performed with the human body through kinesthetic movements in order to express...

...EFT4 TASK5
Part A:
Describe how to introduce the concept of surface area of a cube to students in grades 5 and 6.
I would introduce the concept of surface area of a cube to 5th and 6th grade students by starting off the lesson with a visual representation. I would place a picture of a cube at the front of the class and explain to students that all sides are equal. I would take out a ruler and measure the sides so that students understand that the sides are equal. The picture would be as follows:
I would then explain to the students that if the sides are equal, the measurements from one side can be applied to the other equal sides. I would then explain that the surface area of a cube is made up of the resulting areas of the 6 faces within the cube. After explaining this concept I would tell students that to find the area of only one of the six faces this formula would be used:
area = side x side
or more commonly written
a= s^2
Since all of the 6 face values are the same you can multiply one of them by 6. The surface area of a cube would be 6 times of one of the values of the sides squared or:
Surface area= 6s^2
I would then provide an example using the cube image from earlier. I would demonstrate that to find the surface area of the cube we need to multiply 6 by the value of a given side squared. Since we are given the value of one of the sides in the problem (8) we would need to plug in the number into the following...

...Biochemistry Task5
Shannon Alford
Lipid Storage Molecule Conversion to ATP
Lipids (also known as fats) are nonpolar, insoluble molecules gained within the body trough digestion of food. Triglycerides, a type of lipid that serve as storage units for energy have 3 fatty acid chain tails made up of carboxylic acid and a fatty carbon chain attached to a glycerol backbone. These molecules can be saturated or unsaturated contingent on the bond types and hydrogen number in the molecule. Anytime a fatty acid is removed from a glyceride molecule, dehydration synthesis occurs and a water molecule is taken away. This helps to break the bonds, also called esterase linkages, within the molecule. These bonds house the energy within the triglyceride. After this separation of the fatty acid chain from the glycerol, the glycerol is broken down through the process of glycolysis to produce ATP. Each fatty acid molecule is changed into many molecules of acetyl-CoA which enter into the citrate cycle within the mitochondria where it is converted into ATP. During the process of respiration, the bonds are broken and energy (ATP) is released to be used within the body. Extra fats are stored in adipocytes that are found aggregated in adipose tissue. When the body recognizes a shortage of glucose and carbohydrates, the adipose tissue releases stored fat to be converted into energy according to the supply and demand for ATP within the body.

...daycare is $5.00 and hr
y = 5x
The center based daycare has a flat rate of $185.00 for 40 hours a week, and then $8.00 an hour for any additional hours.
for x /< 40 hours y =185
for x > 40 hours y =185+8(x-40)
Home based option y = 5x
Center based option y = 185 (for x /< 40 hours)
Since they are both equal to y, we can use the substitution method to set both equations equal to each other.
5x = 1855/5 = 185/5
x = 37
Plug x = 37 back into one of the equations above to find y.
y = 5 * 37
y= 185
The solution point is 37 hours for $185, (37,$185)
Daycare option y = 5x
Center based option y = 185 + 8(x-40) (for x > 40 hours)
Since they are both equal to y, we can use the substitution method to set both equations equal to each other.
5x = 185 + 8(x-40)
5x = 185 + 8x - 320
5x -135 + 8x
-3x = -135 Divide bot sides by 3
-3/3 -135/3
x = 45
Plug x = 45 back into one of the equations above to find y.
y = 5 * 45
y = 225
So the solution point is 45 hours for $225, (45, $225)
