MSC Origins Part VI: Transfer to M. Paulino
In a short span of less than two years, the Jesusa Building along A. Flores St. which housed MSC on the second floor (and Monte de Piedad Savings Bank on the first floor) in 1989 became too small for the growing number of MSC students. In October 1991, MSC transferred to a bigger site along M. Paulino St.
Converting Fahrenheit to Celsius
To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, we use the following formula,
C = 5/9 (F – 32) = 10/18 (F – 32)
The trick here is to recognize that 5/9 is the same as 10/18. Hence after deducting 32, we add a zero (multiply by 10) to the result and successively dividing by 2 and 9 (MSC 11 – Dividing by 9) to effectively divide by 18.
MSC High School: Consistent Cyberfair winner
Ever since the Philippine Schools Cyberfair competition was launched in 2001, MSC High School has been a consistent winner. In the International Cyberfair competiton, MSC has also been consistently winning in the largest inter-school web design contest.
The International schools CyberFair, which started in 1996 is an award-winning, authentic learning program used by schools and youth organizations around the world. Students conduct research about their local communities and use digital media to publish their findings online. Recognition is given to the best projects in each of eight categories: local leaders, businesses, community organizations, historical landmarks, environment, music, art, and local specialties.
First to offer Digital Photo Printing Services in San Pablo – MSC Imaging Solutions
With the advent of digital cameras, phonecams, webcams, and even pencams, it is very common to see photo printing shops everywhere. But did you know that MSC was the first to offer this service to San Pableños?
MSC 11 – Division by 9
Most of us want to avoid the number 9 in almost all calculations. But we can make calculations easier by thinking of 9 as (10 – 1). This fact is particularly useful in division by 9.
Every 10 contains a 9 and a remainder of 1. So every multiple of ten that is less than 90 will have a quotient and remainder equal to its tens digit.
