Today's Quote:


Periods 1 & 2 spent the majority of the class period discussing the video and we jumped ahead a bit to discuss the Quantum Theory. Most students were surprised to learn that they have been taught and believed a model of the atom that was over 100 year out of date! The remainder of the period was spent  continuing our article breakdown and we will finish this up today.

Grades closed yesterday and new seating charts will be ready today. Hall passes also reset.

Periods 3- 6 finished up their vocabulary words and then played "what am I?"to make sure they knew what their words were. 

Brain Bender:

A famous magician was bragging about his marksmanship. He claimed to be able to  hang up his hat, walk 50 meters blindfolded, then turn and shoot a bullet right through his hat. Since the magician could not see through the blindfold at all, how could he manage this feat?
