Ice, Ice, Baby……

We are home today because of an abundance of caution about travel on the roads with ice.

What can you do to ensure you maximize your time?

Visit Build An Atom and go through the activity as a review of your atomic structure knowledge. There is nothing to turn in with this – just a review so that we are on the same page when we see the powerpoint and discuss in class.

Use your flashcards to your advantage to work on cementing your knowledge of the 30 element symbols and names on which you will be quizzed on Friday, January 12.

Continue working on your Atomic Theory Webquest we began in class on Friday. Honors, yours will be due on Tuesday, while gen chem has theirs due on Wednesday. We will have a class discussion about your notes in which I expect each of you to participate in order to earn your points.

Watch the safety movie Safety It’s entertaining and informative and will help you be ready for the safety quiz.

Review your algebra and take the 4-question dimensional analysis quiz on Schoology. It is due by Friday, 1/12.

Stay safe and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Also, please recall that I will post very seldom here but instead I’ll communicate with you on Course Sites. Since we have a couple of ladies who have not yet been in class, I posted in both locations.

Great First Day!

I enjoyed meeting each of you today. In the morning classes, we had the opportunity to do a fun lab. Feel free to show it to your families as you have the supplies at your home! We will conduct it on Friday in 4th period due to time constraints today.

If you did not turn in your information form today, please do so tomorrow so I can spend some time reading your intro paragraphs.

We will be in the computer lab tomorrow, carrying out a webquest as we get moving on the content for our class. Recall that standards and syllabi are available on Course Sites in “introductory documents.”

Parents, I will NOT be posting here daily; instead, I communicate with my students via my CourseSites platform. Your children received log-in information today and are welcome to share with you.

Students, be sure to attend to the Schoology pre-course assignments. Learning the 30 element symbols and names is not something that happens overnight so allot sufficient time for the task.
