MSC – The First to Teach Computer Courses in San Pablo Schools
In 1990, less than a year after the opening of MSC Computer Training Center, MSC started teaching computer lessons in other San Pablo City schools. First to partner with MSC was St. Joseph School of San Pablo City. MSC provided 5 personal computers for the use of the elementary pupils who enrolled in probably the first formal computer classes in the city.
MSC Origins Part III : Start of Classes at A. Flores St.
Our transfer to A. Flores St. was very timely because of our rapidly growing enrollment. In our first month alone, 43 students enrolled. Another 80 enlisted in the first 5 months of 1990. Most of them took up the FCO course. A few FCO finishers continued their computer education by taking up the Advanced Computer Operations (ACO) course.
Before we started MATH-Inic, I planned to organize mental Math classes for parents so that they can teach their children at home. To promote my courses I thought of inviting them to free seminars, where I showed them examples of mental calculations.
A good friend, Past President Rosanna Panque of the Kiwanis Club of Siete Lagos who is a Unit Manager at Insular Life asked me to give an ice breaker at one of meetings of her associates. After discussing some short cuts, I asked my audience what they usually compute. As expected, they told me that they often want to know their commissions as soon as their clients bought a policy.
Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush!
by the Busybee
Here we go round the mulberry bush
The mulberry bush, the mulberry bush
Here we go round the mulberry bush
So early in the morning
Mulberries! Just when everyone thought mulberry season is over, there is now an abundance of mulberries. The children here in the MSC Green Campus in San Gabriel, the MSC students, teachers, staff and guests, the MATH-Inic children, they all love mulberries. It’s a happy sight, a happy food, a super food.
Featured Batch: MSC 3-year Office Management Course Class 1994-95 (first batch)
When MSC started offering computer classes, the first courses were short-term courses on computer operation and programming. In the first semester of school year 1991-1992, two-year courses on Computer Technology and Office Management were offered to the growing number of MSC students. Then in school year 1994-95, MSC offered the three-year courses onComputer Technology and Office Management.
MSC 8 – Multiplying by 9
Recall the x9 table.
9 x 1 = 09 9 x 2 = 18 9 x 3 = 27 9 x 4 = 36 9 x 5 = 45 9 x 6 = 54 9 x 7 = 63 9 x 8 = 72 9 x 9 = 81 9 x 10 = 90
If you look closely at the consecutive products of 9, you will see a pattern.The first digit of the product is in increasing order from 0 to 9; while the second digit is decreasing from 9 to 0.
