Essential Question: How can we describe molecules in three-dimensions?
Presentation slides for the week
Monday: Smells: Part II
Tuesday: Ball-and-Stick Models
Summative Assessment the following week:
- Students will develop models to describe the atomic composition of a given molecule.
- State the molecular formula of a molecule given its structural formula.
- Draw the Lewis dot structure of a molecule given its structural formula.
- Identify the shape around central atoms in a given molecule.
- Create a 3D model of a given molecule.
Mr. Wakild - Math
On Monday, we continued our work from last week of solving algebraic expressions. See the handout from last Thursday in the week below. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will solve problems from a context by taking a problem, writing an equation, and then solving it.......Word Problems!!! Thursday, we will either continue our work with problems from a context or we will highlight (or solve) a variable in different equations.
Tuesday & Wednesday Must Do and Practice
Please spend the next weekend working on Khan Academy. If you are having any trouble logging-on to my class or finding it, please email me.
Students collaborated with a partner to design a strategic game that included at least two components of fitness. They will be responsible for teaching the class then reflecting on what went well and what they would change for the next time they would teach it.
In health, they are beginning their research project on a communicable disease that is spread through environmental factors. Upon completing the research questions they will become the 'expert' of their disease and will present to a small group of students in a 10 minute presentation.
