Forms of Energy (Electricity)
To help with the transition to computer tests in science class, I will provide an optional paper copy of the test if students would like to take the test on paper, then transfer their answers to D2L/Brightspace.
purple day: Thursday, February 26th
red day: Friday, February 27th
TEST: Purple day – Thursday, Feb 26th Red day - Friday, Feb 27th
Use the following items from classwork/homework to help you study. These are the items we discussed in class. You have them in your Google Classroom and/or paper copies.
Electricity Notes in Google Classroom or paper copy (includes websites, quizzes and videos). The teacher copy will be posted in Google Classroom before the test.
Electricity Homework (Static Electricity and Current Electricity) in Google Classroom. We completed and checked these in class. Answer keys are also in Google Classroom.
Electricity Extra Resources in Google Classroom.
Be sure you can…
Define and give examples of insulators and conductors
Define and give examples of static charge and electric current.
Identify behavior of charged particles (like charges repel, opposite charges attract)
Explain the term magnet.
Explain the term resistor.
Describe what happens when a short circuit occurs.
Describe the purpose of fuses and circuit breakers.
Describe the purpose of a lightning rod and how it works.
Identify and describe series circuits and parallel circuits.
Compare and contrast series circuits and parallel circuits.
Draw a complete circuit and label the four parts.
Matter and Energy: Properties of Objects
The student will:
Generalize that matter is moving particles too small to be seen without tremendous magnification.
Measure the properties of matter including mass, volume, and density.
Categorize materials as pure substances (i.e., elements, compounds) or mixtures (i.e. homogenous or heterogeneous).
