We are working in Chapter 6 of our textbooks this week!
Student will receive their 11x17 mini boards today and tomorrow. Mini Boards are the final step in the science fair process IF students are not going on to the school level science fair. Mini boards, research papers and experiments ALL will be due December 10th, 2014. If a student chooses to go on to the school science fair, they will need to do a regular back board which we will provide. (I need to know by Friday of this week if you plan on going on to the school science fair so I can get boards)

This time Ben would start 10 meters behind the starting line. All other things being equal, will Carl win, lose, or will it be a tie in the second race? Explain your answer.
