Today's Quote:

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.' 
~ Cynthia Occe




Recap: 

I was out on a teacher workshop yesterday, but students were afforded the opportunity to get their vocabulary and chapter notes started in class. If they didn't finish there, it was assigned as homework.


Brain Bender:

Captain Frak and Professor Quantum played chess. The played seven games, each won the same number of games, and there weren't any draws or stalemates. How could this have happened?

Egg Lander Pricing list: As we discussed in class, businesses must balance their choice in production materials with the goal of making a profit. Everyone wants to use the BEST materials, but everyone ALSO wants to make a profit. What happens is, you have to make trade-offs. Choosing alternative materials allows you to ensure quality and safety while still maintaining a healthy profit margin. This is a RISK you take in business. We are going to apply an element of this risk to your egg landers.
The fine print:
  1. You may work individually or as partners.
  2. You must form a corporate name.
  3. You will purchase ALL materials for your egg lander vehicle. (I may have some of them in the class, but I cannot supply everyone, everything) I will supply one "eggstronaut" to each individual or partner group.
  4. You must use the following "risk" points guide when purchasing materials:
  5. If you manage to successfully land your vehicle with your eggstronaut intact and within the target zone, you will get all of your RISK grade points back.
  6. As payment, you will also receive one "get out of test free" card, usable on any regular class test or quiz.
  7. The landing zone: you must land within the target zone. Two grade points will be subtracted from your overall total for every .5 meters outside the target zone. In the real world, precision and accuracy are extremely important and costly in both time and money if they are not part of the constraints of any project.

Parachute Egg Lander Goals:

  1. Be able to understand Newton's Law of Gravitation and how to apply it.
  2. Know Newton's three laws and how they apply to everyday life.
  3. Be able to describe the motion of a two and three dimensional object
  4. Show proficiency in designing and building a device capable of landing an egg safely on the ground and calculate how much force it would experience if dropped on Mars.


6th Grade Honor's Earth Space Science:

6th Grade Class Information and Syllabus

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.
