On Monday students were introduced to the Pop Art Movement, specifically the work of Roy Lichtenstein. They need to have the following vocabulary words from a game we played in class defined in their sketchbooks. They are encouraged to use sketches and visual note-taking whenever possible.
Words/Terms to Know: Identity, Portrait, Pop Art, Parody, Tongue-in-Cheek, Self-Portrait, Representative, Melodrama, Painterly, Derivative, Depict, Adversity, Diptych, Onomatopoeia, Artistic Conventions, Ben-Day Dots, Mechanize, Acclaim, Apex, Satirize
For more information on Roy Lichtenstein, the content, or the upcoming project, please check out this PowerPoint Presentation.
This week we finished up with finding slope by using similar triangles and graphing slope from contextual problems. Students are able to look at tables, equations, and graphs to find missing information. Next Tuesday, February 9th, is the summative on Linear Relationships and Proportional Reasoning.
Upcoming Summative Assessment: Thursday February 11th, 2016
Learning Targets on Assessment:
-I can list the names and relative percentages of the major gases in Earth’s atmosphere.
-I can explain how and why the atmosphere has changed over time.
-I can diagram the carbon (sources and sinks) and nitrogen cycles
-I can explain how some human and natural factors have changed the atmosphere.
Essential Question: How do natural and anthropogenic factors alter Earth’s atmosphere? What might be some consequences of these changes?

This week the students analyzed how carbon moves through the atmosphere. Students completed a simulation of the carbon cycle in which they moved according to the roll of a die through a variety of carbon reservoirs. Students then modeled their motion in a diagram and graph. In order to dive deeper into how carbon moves through the processes of photosynthesis and respiration, students explored chemical reactions using beans. This activity will be completed on Monday next week.
