The first commencement exercises in MSC High School was held in 1998 with its first batch consisting of twenty-three (23) promising graduates. Through the years, MSC has produced many successful professionals who excel in their chosen fields of expertise. Here is a list of just a few of them.

We invite all to forward and share this newsletter 25 Math Short Cuts to friends in the MSC community to disseminate information about the event. Every week, we will also feature a very useful math technique, a bit of MSC history, and MSC today.

New Science Club Sets Ambitious Goals
The new MSC Science Club (MSC) which was formed out of the old Math-Sci Club, sets its sights of having an alternative powered science classroom in time for the school’s 25th Anniversary. Recognizing the continuous increase in the cost of electrical power, the club made research of a suitable non-traditional power source for the school its main objective for this school year.
Blast from the past!
- 1571 – Arrival of Spanish troops under Captain Juan de Salcedo in the village of Sampalok (San Pablo City).
- 1586 – Sampalok was converted into a parish.
- 1647 – Sampalok was converted to a municipality and renamed San Pablo de los Montes.
The concept of “borrowing” when subtracting a large number from a smaller number is perhaps one of the most confusing lessons we learn in school. Given a simple subtraction problem like:
134 – 97 = ??
In our head we say something like:
four minus seven, can not be
borrow one from three. fourteen minus seven is seven…
Mental Subtraction is very easy if there is no “borrowing”. We will discuss three ways to avoid borrowing.
