Academic Calendar 2017-2018
Sunday, October 25, 2015
Monday and Tuesday October 26th & 27th, 2015
Homework was collected in all periods and we broke out into our specific units. I began the lecture over the Periodic Table of elements and electron configurations ad will finish this up on Tuesday.
Picture a ship at anchor. Over the side hangs a rope ladder with half meter rungs. (.5 meters between each rung) The tide rises a half meter per hour. At the end of five hours, how much of the ladder will remain above the water assuming that nine rungs were above the water when the tide began to rise?
All classes will be given today to use the computers to work on their Science Fair projects. Students who DO NOT plan to enter the County Science Fair, may composes their projects using Power Point. USE THIS TIME WISELY! You can log in to Easybib.com and compose your works cited page. Remember, you need three sources from the Gale Database or books and several websites. You can also compose your written report using the computers. All papers MUST be typed in Times New Roman 12pt font using black ink. Type must be double spaced. Title page should have the title in 24 point Times New Roman font 1/3rd of the way down the page and centered. Under this you need your full name, period, and my name. You may also use Excel or Google graphs to make you graphs and charts. NO HANDWRITTEN PAPERS OR GRAPHS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR CREDIT. This was clearly stated throughout the project. Be sure to save all your work to a jump drive or your student account. No information can be saved to the computers.
If, at any time, I find classes engaged i talking about topics other than science fair related help or assistance to other students, I reserve the right to return to our regularly scheduled lessons.
I expect to resume normal class tomorrow unless there is a pressing need for more computer time.
