1. ### Slide 1 - Short passage: Health and PE

• Steps to Good Health
• Can a fitness gadget called a pedometer help a person walk an additional mile (about 1.6 kilometers) each day? According to multiple research studies, it can, if the person sets a goal and keeps a diary of the number of steps taken each day.
• Pedometers, also called step counters, clip to a belt or waistband and count the steps the wearer takes during the day. Dr. Dena Bravata wanted to recommend pedometers, which cost about \$20, to her patients in order to help them keep fit. First, though, she wanted to know if the devices actually helped people walk more.

2. ### Slide 2 - Short passage: Science

• What Is Genetics?
• Genetics is the scientific study about the ways characteristics of living things such as eye color or nose shapes or genetic conditions are passed from one generation to the next. The basic units of heredity are genes; diseases caused by abnormal gene forms are called genetic disorders.
• At Fullerton Genetics Center, we focus on how we inherit certain
• characteristics from our parents, and whether or not people are
• more prone to certain diseases due to their genetic code. We provide
• genetics services for adults, children and their families.

3. ### Slide 3 - Short passage: Math

• Open ended question:
• Alice received a check and she decided to cash it at her local bank. For some reason, the bank teller was confused and switched the dollars and cents; that is, what was written as cents on the check he gave to her in dollars, and what was written in dollars on the check he gave to her in cents. It was not until after she bought a piece of candy for five cents that she noticed the teller's error. At that point, she actually had twice the amount of money that was written on the check. How much money was the check made out for? Explain your thinking and your answer(s). Also, explain why you believe there is only one possible answer, or why you believe there is more than one possible answer.
