Numbers, Numbers, Numbers

I started thinking about Numbers - what can I say - I'm a math guy. I googled the word number, along with Poway, the town where Excel Math is located. Here's what I learned:

  1. The first meaning of Numbers is as a means of contacting people by telephone.
  2. Poway is going to allow Remote-Caller Bingo games, where the caller who supplies the bingo numbers comes from outside Poway. The city code starts like this: A. “Authorized organization” is an organization exempted from the payment of the bank and corporation tax by Sections 23701a, 23701b, 23701d, 23701e, 23701f, 23701g, 23701k, 23701l or 23701w of the Revenue and Taxation Code. “Authorized organization” also includes a senior citizens organization, a mobile home park association, or a charitable organization affiliated with a school...
  3. Gaines Manufacturing produces house number plaques and mail boxes. They're 3 blocks from us.
  4. Poway Unified School District standards include Number Sense (1st Grade) : Students understand and use numbers up to 100. They demonstrate the meaning of addition and subtraction ...
  5. If you want to start your own business, incorporate or form a Limited Liability Company in Poway, or if you are an employer, you need to obtain a Federal Income Tax Identification Number.
  6. On January 20th of this year, someone in Poway had a winning lottery ticket for $201,000! They got all but one lotto number (and so they missed out on winning $105 million).
  7. There are a number of interesting things for seniors to do, if they live at Brookview Village.
  8. If you want to know how much tax you pay to support the local school district, you need to have the Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) for your property.
  9. In the past decade, a total number of 1783 government defense contracts were given to 142 companies in Poway, for a total value of $396,774,299.
  10. The Poway Unified School District is good compared to the norm in California ... the lowest school API score numbers are in the mid 700s and most are in the 800s. Here's a list of the top API scores in the Poway district:

    • Creek Side: 2006 API = 961
    • Deer Canyon: 2006 API = 947
    • Park Village: 2006 API = 940
    • Chaparral: 2006 API = 924
    • Painted Rock: 2006 API = 922
That's just about enough numbers for me today. It's a good thing we have plenty of experience from our elementary math educations to know how to use numbers ...
