From that early age, I learned the importance of money management and the math skills involved.I learned that there were four quarters in a dollar, and if I bought a non-food item—like a handful of balloons—that I was going to need to come up with six cents for every dollar I spent.

Every essay or assignment you write must begin with an introduction.
It might be helpful to think of the introduction as an inverted pyramid.
When I was a child, I used math to run a lemonade stand.
I will be talking more about these things in my paper.In such a pyramid, you begin by presenting a broad introduction to the topic and end by making a more focused point about that topic in your thesis statement.The introduction has three essential parts, each of which serves a particular purpose.I also knew that Kool-Aid packets were 25 cents each or that I could save money and get five of them for a dollar.Today, however, money management involves knowing more than which combinations of 10-cent, five-cent, and one-penny candies I can get for a dollar.In the introduction above, the opening line does not serve to grab the reader’s attention.Instead, it is a statement of an obvious and mundane fact. A more effective attention grabber may point out a specific, and perhaps surprising, instance when adults use math in their daily lives, in order to show the reader why this is such as important topic to consider.The writer concludes with a vague statement: “I will be talking more about these things in my paper.” This kind of statement may be referred to as a “purpose statement,” in which the writer states the topics that will be discussed.However, it is not yet working as a thesis statement because it fails to make an argument or claim about those topics.If you are a student using Post 9/11 benefits, please contact an advisor at 800-939-UMUC to determine if you can apply both benefits.All students are required to pay tuition for all courses in which they are enrolled.
