8 days till Winter Break!

Today's Quote:

'We rise by lifting others.' ~ Robert Ingersoll


6th: We began our new unit into how the Earth was formed and will continue working on this through the winter break. For those students who are absent, this is chapters 10 and 6 in your textbook. Yesterday we managed to cover the first part of the notes where we started to diagram the layers of the Earth.

7th: In our classes we finally got into the bone dissection and students identified the periosteum as well as other structures in the medullary cavity. We will finish this up 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. 4th period was slightly confused by this process so we will review it today.

Brain Bender:

Professor Zee and his sister Bee were passing the Soul- Ace hHotel when the professor said, "My nephew is in there and I would like to stop and say hello."

"Since I don't have a nephew, I'll continue on and see you later, "replied Bee. What relation is Bee to the mysterious nephew?


(This should be written in your planner every day)

Earth’s Structure and Changes Over Time

Unit Essential Question: How do the processes of the rock cycle and human activities alter the surface of Earth over time? 
How do the processes of the rock cycle and human activities alter the surface of Earth over time?
Key Learning Statement: The shape of the land changes over time through two major processes, both natural and manmade.  Natural changes occur through weathering, erosion, and deposition which are agents of the rock cycle.  Manmade changes occur through deforestation, urbanization, desertification, air, land, water quality, and change in flow and pollution of water.  

Chapters 10 and 6 in the textbook. If you are out sick, you are expected to red these chapters and if you miss a lab day, you will need to do the chapter section reviews, "Try this"problems and math practice questions for credit.
