High School Courses
Currently, students are discovering how to identify minerals and rocks. We will continue to learn about the earth's materials, surface, and forces within the earth. Our goal is to finish the year with meteorology.
Currently, students are wrapping up their unit over energy. We will continue visiting this unit this week with many trips to the old gym to launch our "rockets". The students will be determining how gravitational potential energy of a straw rocket depends on the elastic potential energy of a rubber band launcher.
During the rest of the school year, students will continue to explore physics in an introductory fashion. Students may be asked to bring in household supplies to continue a hands-on approach for learning.
Currently, the biology class is exploring ecology. We will continue our ecology unit for several weeks and then transition into a short lesson about evolution. We are also preparing for the Biology EOC. I will keep the students informed when I hear more on our test date.
It is important for students to keep up with printing notes found on the Google Classroom; as well as, adding to these notes during class. I have expressed that studying a little each day or making a study schedule for the week would show positive results in student's learning and will show in their grades.
