8th graders went back to the drawing board and we rehashed the speed formula since there seemed to be so much confusion. I reminded all classes that while I do the best job possible teaching them, they ABSOLUTELY MUST open their book or computer and STUDY. These links will help!
In 7th grade, we completed the external anatomy of the frog and will have a POP quiz today. We managed to cut the lower jaw bone in preparation of studying the internal structure of the mouth and the beginning of the digestive system.
Today will be our first timed trial for the mousetrap cars. You sholdbe able to explain how Newton's three laws aply to the motion of your car and today is the day to practice explaining the motionof the car to a partner before you have to exlain it to me. Tomorrow will be the ACTUAL time trials.
With the confusion over speed and velocity, I have had to call in the big guns and use a freind's video.
Homework: Watch the following video and complete the Google form over the topics covered. Due tomorrow.
