Recap:

6th: We worked through the final stage of our discussion on Solar input and I will provide the numbers for the classes to finish filling out their lab and turn it in. This week, we begin our new unit 

7th: Students Began the bone dissection on Friday and will continue it today


8th: classes were excited to do electron configurations (NOT!) and learned how to balance a chemical equation. We still need to look at calculating molar mass


Brain Bender:

There is a robot that is programmed to assemble children's toys. During laboratory tests, the robot assembled hundreds of toys without any errors. The day arrived when the robot was to give a public demonstration and, as Murphy's Law would have it, everything went wrong. The toy pieces were put in a carton and brought to the public demonstration. The robot was given the carton filled with toy pieces, but it was unable to assemble a single toy. What went wrong?


Agenda:

(This should be written in your planner every day)
