Use what talents you possess, for the woods would be silent if no birds sang except for the best. – Henry van Dyke

Extra Credit

Every nine-weeks you may do two extra Science In the News summaries for extra credit. Each one can count up to 5 points each on a major test. (And that’s a lot!)

Click below for the assignment. Extra credit is due at the end of the nine-weeks.

This week in chemistry, I have struggled with understanding ans working out unit conversions. To help with this, I have been studying and memorizing the chart with the prefixes, their meanings, and the exponents. I feel like this studying will help me tremendously on future assignments.

This week (and last week) I struggled a little with studying for the elements quiz. I realized that just looking over the elements wasn’t enough. I needed to actually write them down, and really think about what I was doing.

My goal is to be able to make a A on one of the test that you give us and i plan on achieving this goal by asking for help if i need it, making time to study, and making sure im studying the right way.

My goal this semester is to make better grades on my test and I plan on doing that by giving myself more time to study in advance and applying the definitions more rather then just memorizing them

This week I rate myself a 3/5. I did all my homework but did not complete it all. My test was not the best I could’ve done. I didn’t study as much as I needed to.

Reflect/Rate
I believe that I have done good this week even though we have had short class periods. I understand everything that I was absent for and have completed all the labs. I rate myself as a 4/5 because I should have started studying for my chemistry test on monday

This week I would give myself a 3 because I understand how to do the formulas and how to find them in word problems. However, I do get them mixed up sometimes and that’s why I studied the week to make sure I get it right on the test.

J – super important to find a proactive way that works for you!

This week i struggled with time management and trying to memorize the information on the pre-test and i also struggled with the oxidation numbers
