For our project, students will be constructing animals. In order to build the animals in appropriate proportions, it is necessary to geometrically map the animals, and use the proportions extrapolated from the mapping as a guide during the construction. Below are the links to the materials we used to map the front face of our animals. For Tuesday, March 12, students are expected to have the front face mapped according to the provided instructions, the sheet with plotted points for major facial features, and the sheet that details the sizing and positioning of major facial features.
Our next quiz will take place during the week before spring break, either on Thursday 21st, or Friday 22nd. There will be two concepts that we cover, and below is the worksheet and answer sheet for the first concept. This worksheet will be due on Tuesday, March 12th.
This week we will dive into one more set of concepts, Volume and Surface Area, before Friday's quiz. Below are the worksheets with notes and the answer sheet that is due by Friday. We will begin our review for the quiz on Wednesday.
Our next unit of math will focus on area and perimeter. The worksheet to practice and reinforce our understanding of these topics can be downloaded by clicking the link below. The answer sheet, also found below, is due by this Friday, February 22.
Congratulations to students for completing the CAHSEE this week!
We are spending the remaining of the week wrapping up some experimentation and reviewing math and chemistry concepts.
To finalize our first lab - Crystallizations of Common Ionic Compounds, students are to reflect in their lab notebooks according to the following prompts. These reflections are due by Friday, February 8.
Continuing where we left off last week, we are now learning how to translate chemical reactions. Given a chemical equation, students should be able balance it and translate it into written form. Likewise, when provided a written or dictated chemical reaction, students should be able to translate it into a balanced chemical equation.
Below is a worksheet for practice and reinforcement in these essential skills. The worksheet is due by Wednesday Feb. 6th by the beginning of class.
Last week we learned about different types of quadrilaterals, and also touched on the relationship between angles within shapes. This week we expanded on angle relationships, investigating the relationships between angles formed by transversals and parallel lines.
Below is the homework for the week, along with the answer sheet. The answer sheet is due on Friday February 1, and should be turned in to the Math bin in the front of the class.
We have continued our understanding of covalent compounds, now investigating how cations with multiple oxidation states combine with anions. In addition, we have also begun to take a look at covalent compounds. In addition to nomenclature, we began a discussion of common properties that apply to ionic and covalent compounds. To reinforce our understanding, students are to complete the following worksheet, which is due this Wednesday January 30.
This week we continued our investigation of ionic compounds. We performed two experiments, Crystallization of Common Ionic Compounds and Hot Ice: Preparation of a Supersaturated Solution. As students write up their findings from these experiments, they will be prompted to make connections to the content that we are covering.
Below is a worksheet and reference sheet to help students build their understanding of ionic compounds. The worksheet is due on Monday January 28th at the beginning of class.
We'll begin the new semester picking up where we left off. Attached is the homework and answer sheet.
As a reminder, only the answer sheet should be turned in on Friday. The Basic Skills sheet should be saved to serve as a record of the material we covered for reviewing purposes.
Good Luck, and please remember to ask questions if anything is confusing.
