PHYSICS: Have you ever had something just disappear?!? Here’s my second go a today’s post!
First – from today an overview of the test on chapter 2, especially some conceptual stuff. Underneath that, the vodcast from the help session this morning – the pelican problem and the dropping the shoe problem.
Are you becoming more comfortable with working problems? When selecting formulas, it’s always a good idea to ask yourself “Why?”. Why can you use this formula? Why is it legit? Why is it the best one? Is there a better route to the solution? And then, continue to practice them over and over til it starts to become second nature!
Speaking of help sessions – tomorrow morning, 7:15ish A.M., we’ll go over problems again if you need some practice! Good idea to go back and study those earlier velocity problems as well!
God bless you as you study!! I’ll be praying for you!!
CHEMISTRY & HON CHEMISTRY: Great job today! You are going to be dreaming about graphs before it’s all over! Here is the work with did with making graphs with Excel and the overview of Graphing Exercise 1 & 2.
Be sure a copy of the UPDATED assignment and and read the instructions very, very carefully. Also, be sure to go the Worksheet/Handouts tab and pay close attention to the sheet on How to Construct a Line Graph, and How to Make a Best Fit (Scatter Plot) Line Graph in Excel 2010 – UPDATED.
Now go forth and conquer graphs!!
If you were absent on Monday, here’s info on the graphing activity that we did Monday in class:
Holler if you have any questions!
PHYSICS: Great job thinking through the problems today – all two of them! Here’s the rocket problem and the throwing rocks problem. Just enough to get you started!
More practice? Help session tomorrow morning, Tuesday, 7:15ish A.M.
CHEMISTRY – Wow! Hasn’t just soooooooo much gone into making up chapter 2? Here’s the overview of the test from today. Remember, don’t just read your notes – practice your notes, practice the problems, practice the memorization!!
If you haven’t done so already, make sure you go to Edline, open the Chemistry class page, click on Tests in the right column, and check out the two review sheets on chapter 2. Great info!!! And continue to practice with these online games and quizzes:
Online Textbook: There are wonderful Interactive Review Games with your online text. First open chapter 2. Then click on the the Student Premium tab, then Interactive Review Games. There are games like Millionaire, Bootcamp, and Pyramid that quiz you with questions just like the ones I’ll give you on the test. See how high you can get your score!!
sciencegeek.net has great interactive quizzes with questions like I’ll ask on the test. Find the unit that corresponds to the topics we’ve been studying and begin to quiz yourself. There are answers, too!
God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!!
PHYSICS – So how about a little free fall? Here’s our short discussion on acceleration due to gravity. What’s your reaction time? Knowing what you now know, is there a way for you to figure that out? Let’s play with the problems tomorrow and see if we can do something useful with free fall! I mean in addition to finding your reaction time!!
Speaking of reaction time – do the thLAB tonight for homework. You won’t write this one up as a report – just answer the questions/observations on notebook paper.
Hey – how are the acceleration problems coming? Help session tomorrow morning, 7:15ish A.M.
CHEMISTRY – Can you believe it? We finished the chapter today! Here’s the lecture from /Tuesday on direct and inverse proportions and also a head start on some of the problems.
Speaking of tests, have you gone to Edline and looked under “Tests” yet? You might find something that will help a lot as you study!!!
If you need extra practice on anything, don’t forget the HELP SESSION tomorrow morning, Wednesday, 7:15ish A.M. Begin making a list of the problems you need help with or questions you have.
Also, don’t forget to check out the Interactive Review Games with your online text and also sciencegeek.net. Great practice with both memorization, concepts and problem solving! God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!!
PHYSICS: From Wednesday a couple of acceleration problems from Monday. Didn’t get to the cockroaches….maybe the Help Session Thursday morning? 7:15ish A.M.
Let’s go play in the traffic tomorrow – well, the parking lot anyway!
HON CHEMISTRY – God bless you as you prepare for your test! Here’s the overview of the test and chapter 2 that we did in class today.
Below the vodcast today’s class is the vodcast from the help session this morning. Need more practice? We’ll have another help session tomorrow morning, 7:15ish A.M.
Remember, don’t just read your notes – practice your notes, practice the problems, practice the memorization!! If you haven’t had a chance to print them out, here are links to the study suggestion sheet and the chapter 2 formula sheet. Click on the names below to open.
Also, don’t forget the Interactive Review Games with your online text and also sciencegeek.net. God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!!
CHEMISTRY – Great job with our start on using conversion factors to work advanced problems! Hopefully this was a review from your earlier academic life. If not and you need more practice – HELP SESSION Wednesday morning, 7:15ish A.M.
Remember, this isn’t just about getting an answer – some of you can do that in your head. This is about being able to convert from one unit to another using the Q-formula. (And yes, you have to do it that way!)
Make sure you practice using your notes tonight, it’ll help you remember the steps we followed today in class!
