Attention Parents:

8th Grade Parents: We have elected to honor our 8th grade students with the official President’s Award. This award will be given to students who maintained all A’s throughout their middle school years here at Lovinggood or who maintained a 90% average at the end of each year for their academic classes. It is important to note that the criteria only needed to be maintained up until the end of the first semester of this school year. We have identified students who made all A’s by running a report. There is not a middle school report that we are able to run that identifies students whose average in each academic area was at least a 90% each year. If your student maintained a 90% average in each academic area every year, submit their information here by 3:00 p.m. Monday, May 13th. Thank you for your help with this effort.

AGENDA FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 16-20, 2018

STANDARDS: 

S8P4. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to support the claim that electromagnetic (light) waves behave differently than mechanical (sound) waves.

 

a. Ask questions to develop explanations about the similarities and differences between electromagnetic and mechanical waves.

 

b. Construct an explanation using data to illustrate the relationship between the electromagnetic spectrum and energy.

 

c. Design a device to illustrate practical applications of the electromagnetic spectrum (e.g., communication, medical, military).

 

 d. Develop and use a model to compare and contrast how light and sound waves are reflected, refracted, absorbed, diffracted or transmitted through various materials.

 

e. Analyze and interpret data to predict patterns in the relationship between density of media and wave behavior (i.e., speed).

 

f. Develop and use a model (e.g., simulations, graphs, illustrations) to predict and describe the relationships between wave properties (e.g., frequency, amplitude, and wavelength) and energy.

 

g. Develop and use models to demonstrate the effects that lenses have on light (i.e., formation an image) and their possible technological applications.
