Today's Class:After analyzing FCA data, I discovered that 80% of my students did not clearly understand precision and accuracy, so I have provided a worksheet for homework and the link is below in the homeowrk section. This will be due on Thursday or Friday this week. (Depending on the day they have me)
Students were also given a list of science vocabulary words for use with this unit. They pasted them into their planners. The quiz will be next week, on Wednesday October 15th, 2014. Please use this Quizlet link, to practice and study: Properties of Matter vocabulary
I started my lecture on Properties of matter using Properties of matter Power Point 1. And Properties of Matter 2. Students should view the power points and write the answers to the questions in presentation 2 into their COWS.
