Today's Lateral Thinking question:

If you were to take two apples from three apples, how many apples would you have?

Today's Class:

Sadly, I have lost my voice. Students in class today will work together to finish Invitation 13 in groups of 3. It will be due at the end of class. Invitation 13 The idea of hypothesis

Invitation 10 The Idea of Hypothesis

Place your corrected test into your manila folder in the milk crates

Video links.

Physical Science only watch Hypothesis vs. Theory

Honors Physical Science watch the above video AND this one: Scientific explanations and theory's

This weeks vocabulary.

there will be a quiz on Thursday and Friday

Today's homework:

All students should begin studying the vocabulary words located at the quizlet link above.

Questions for discussion:

Key points: Be able to explain the difference between a hypothesis, theory and law.

Be able to discuss how these three things are similar.

Give examples of the scientific inquiry process in action ad how hypotheses move to the theory stage and ultimately the law stage.

Today's discussion question:

What is a global issue and what does it mean to be interconnected?

Watch this video over and over. Lab Safety

PM Update:

We went over Invitation 13 in class and students worked in small groups. As I walked around the class I clarified several points in the discussion. For example Students are to formulate three hypotheses as If/then statements about the first part of the scenario where the workers sprayed the flies with DDT and, over time, fewer and fewer flies died. Then one of the workers poses the question, " maybe the DDT is becoming less effective because we made a big batch of it and it has been sitting for a long time. Students were to design two experiments to test this question which, written in hypothetical form would be: If the DDT has been sitting for a long period of time, then it becomes less effective.

I explained to the class that there were 10 things that needed to be complete on their paper when they turn it in TOMORROW as they walk into class. They need 3 hypotheses, 2 different experimental designs, a list consisting of the three things they have been examining (from the list of four on the paper) and they need to identify the one thing they have not dealt with, (from the list). Finally, they are to take the one they have not dealt with and try to develop a hypothesis of what may be happening to the flies.
