"To Strive, To Seek, and not To Yield"
My teaching goal is to help students figure out that science is for everyone and at the same time creating a challenging classroom to help students reach for their own stars.online textbook- Think central for science fusionuse the information that is assigned to you for computeruse at school to sign into the online textbook
Quad 2 test is 10/29
Chemistry has finished matter unit 1 and currently working on periodic table and atomic structure unit 2.
A neutron walked into a coffee shop and ordered a coffee. When he asked how much the barista said " For You, no charge".
quad 2 test is 10/29 tuesday
Students have jumped and thrown balls up into the air to find distance using the free fall kinematics formulaes. We have worked several problems and discussed how basketball players use " hang time" to their advantage. We are finished with kinematics 1-d linear movement.
Next, unit is Newton's laws of motion. Hopefully the Ag department will have some awesome water bottle launchers made soon and students can figure out the force and acceleration it takes to launch rockets. We will discuss how the laws of motion affect everyday objects such as cars and athletes on the playing field/court.
Chapter 3 test on the Brain will be on Tuesday 10/29/19- Know diagram of the brain and its main functions. Know how dopamines or lack of them causes some physical and mental diseases. Know how endocrine system affects hormonal balances and functions of parts of the brain.
Next unit will be chapter 5 Consciousness.
Pyschology semester class
August 15, 2019
Welcome back to school. Pyschology class delves into the history of pyschology, hierarchy of needs, stimulation/response, and how the brain works and responds to its environment. We will have research and presentation projects( yes, there is an expectation of speaking in front of your peers) and positive class discussions of current topics. This is a social science topic so we will still use the scientific method and protocols to look at and decipher research in the field. This is considered an upper level course so there is an expectation that students will perform with greater thought and reflection. You will be expected to take notes over the material presented and listen/talk graciously to others.
Notebook of your choice- Will pick it up and grade it so don't mix it up with another subject.
Folder to hold handouts/readings- If using a ring-notebook will need some dividers.
pens and pencils of your choosing
