"Nothing changes if nothing changes"
MIDTERMS NEXT WEEK!!
Last week we started a new unit on velocity and acceleration....WELCOME TO PHYSICS!! At this point everybody should be able to calculate the speed and acceleration of an object. They should be able to articulate the formulas for both speed/acceleration as well. This week, we are going to put those formulas into action as we go outside and take a look at some of Evergreen road's traffic and try to decide how fast cars are going.,,,from our safe vantage point of the sidewalk of course! Safety first in science!
AGAIN....If the kids use their class time wisely this week, there should not be much homework. I would appreciate it if parents would take a look through and discuss the last 6-7 pages (up through pg 91) of their INBs with their kids. Again, students can make up or redo anything in my class for a better score!
Reminder: the planner, text book pages, instructional videos, handouts, and copies of the notes can also be found on my website.

By this time in the year, I'll bet you already know many ways to study. The question is...ARE YOU STUDYING?
If you are, write down what you did to study, when you studied, and where you studied; have someone who can vouch for you sign it. If you bring this in and give it to Mr. Kottkey, you will be entered in for a drawing at the end of this week. You can enter up to five times!
