The company and its president are no longer allowed to offer any business or work-at-home opportunities. The Zaken Corp., in Thousand Oaks, California, told people they could make $3,000 to $6,000 a week working only two to four hours.

Zaken Corp and the president, Tiran Zaken, ended up in U.S. (Source: U.S.

BATTLESHIP: IRREGULAR VERBS | ELT-CATION Much to learn, you still have. – Joda. Despite the evidence that the number of irregular verbs is declining in the English language, there is no danger they will disappear, and the struggle will continue. There are many attempts to find a shortcut in learning irregular verbs, yet with all the options and “magic tricks” available, learning these verbs requires much memorization, drilling and practice. Today I will show how I use the Battleship game to drill and practise irregular verbs in a fun way. Before the game: Each player will need two 10×10 grids – one with irregular verbs in each square, and one blank grid. Click the Grids to download them. The players then mark where they want to place their ships by circling rows, horizontally or vertically. Each player’s fleet consists of the following ships: 1 aircraft carrier – 5 squares 1 battleship – 4 squares 1 cruiser – 3 squares 2 destroyers – 2 squares each 2 submarines – 1 square each How to play: some more games with irregular verbs from Engames.

Reading in the Mathematics Classroom by Joan M. Kenney, Euthecia Hancewicz, Loretta Heuer, Diana Metsisto and Cynthia L. Tuttle To many teachers, mathematics is simply a matter of cueing up procedures for students, who then perform the appropriate calculations. Certainly teachers try to help students to read and interpret mathematics text and discuss problem-solving strategies with them. Unless mathematics teachers are generalists and have been trained in reading instruction, they don't see literacy as part of their skill set. Listening to teachers reword or interpret mathematics problems for their students has led me to start conversations with teachers about taking time to work specifically on reading and interpretation. All mathematics teachers recognize the need to teach their students to read and interpret what I'll call mathematical sentences: equations and inequalities.
