Today's Quote:


In 8th Grade Honors classes we began our discussion of Newton's third law and I delayed picking up the homework problems until everyone was present to go over them. (Our students just returned from Washington, D.C.) We did get the definitions of projectile motion and free fall

In 7th grade we began a discussion of the reproductive system using the Biodigital human project and my Power Point however period 3 could not act mature enough to conduct the discussion and ended up opening the textbook and reading the section while writing out the vocabulary and taking Cornell notes over the information. They will continue this today.

8th grade physical science classes (5th period) began work in Chapter 3 of the textbook. By the end of the period they should have completed and turned in the vocabulary for credit. If it was not turned in yesterday, then it is one day late today and drops a letter grade. 

Brain Bender:

Mack White stopped his tractor trailer at the foot of an old bridge. The trailer was air tight except for two screen doors at the rear. The trailer has a second set of doors which can be closed over the screen doors enabling him to seal the trailer air tight. Mack closed the second set of doors and began to pound on them. When a passerby asked him what he was doing, he replied, "I've got 2000 pigeons in the back and I think they are too heavy for this old bridge. I'm making the "little buggers"fly around so they'll lighten the load 'till I get across". Will Mack's idea lighten the load or will it be the same? Explain in scientific and mathematic terms.



8th grade honors

Normally, I would not do this, however, I have a very important deadline I MUST meet today. In class you will watch Star Trek. Pay close attention to the scene involving Free fall toward the planet Vulcan which has a gravitational acceleration of 19.62m/s/s. You will be asked to calculate the acceleration of the falling bodies.


Read through the sections on Free Fall, Projectile motion and circular motion and be prepared to solve several problems on Thursday and Friday.  Turn in your homework from the weekend.
