More dealing with data ...
Today we analyzed our Starburst preferences AND discussed graphing. We collected some data and have just one simple graph to complete for homework. Be sure you are choosing to do a GREAT graph on looseleaf paper. We have another graph for the back side of that paper on Monday! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you need to print or copy THESE NOTES about graphing in your notebook page 25. You can get the data to do your graphs on Monday... just worry about notes today and watch the video below!

Dealing with data ...
Today we had just a bit of time to work on our Tootsie conclusions (due tonight by 11:59 pm!) and discussed math skills used in science. We added DATA as well as QUALITATIVE DATA and QUANTITATIVE DATA to our glossary. We also took some notes on MATH SKILLS in our notebook. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can click any of the hot links for vocabulary and notes (if it is bolded and underlined it's a link). You are running out of time for LIFE SCIENCE SYLLABUS SURVEYS to be completed! Some of you still have SAFETY CONTRACTS due as well! Do your job kids!!!

Fall Fun Day Today !!!
No science class (except period 1) so nothing to make up HOWEVER you have a conclusion due tomorrow for the Tootsie Pop Lab. Get into your Google Classroom and finish up! Fall fun days are the best days!!!
Conclusion time ...
Today we worked on our conclusion for the Tootsie Pop Lab. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to join Life Science Google Classroom and complete the assignment. Use the following class codes:
PERIOD 1 my1v7d
PERIOD 3 1cp77ru
PERIOD 4 kkioqs6
PERIOD 5 yt8j4f
PERIOD 6 zsdnas
Tomorrow is supposed to be a lovely day for Fall Fun Day! Bring a jacket and wear sunscreen!

We analyzed some tootsie pop data today! Tonight we need to finish our conclusions and be ready to dissect them tomorrow.
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you will need to write your analysis questions (page 21 in notebook... either copy question and then answer OR you can restate the queston in your answers) and begin your conclusion. Be sure to discuss YOUR results as well as the class average AND total Paideia averages in your conclusion work. We have data from 110 lollipops with 63927 total licks!

How many licks DOES it take?
Today we collected data to answer the question "How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop?" Over the weekend you can let your tongue recover (who knew it would hurt so much?!?!)
IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY (or if you finally have a signed safety contract) you can get a tootsie pop from me on Monday when you return!
We will continue with data analysis and conclusion work for this lab on Monday. Go WOLFPACK!!!

Ready for experimentation ...
Today we worked with variables again. We also took a quick SWYK to assess how well we are identifying variables! Tomorrow we start with experimentation.. Make sure you have a signed SAFETY CONTRACT turned in! Some of you STILL need to have your parents complete the LIFE SCIENCE SYLLABUS SURVEY. Take the time to get all this completed tonight! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can take the quick SWYK at lunch or after school (or in class on Monday).

More with experimentation ...
Today we practiced identifying variables with experimentation. We will practice tomorrow as well and then DO experimentation on Friday! Be sure to have your SAFETY CONTRACT signed and turned in by Friday! IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can print THESE NOTES (or copy on page 18). Watch the video below too!!! We are trying to do good science this year!
September 19th, 2018
Today we took our Show What You Know for tools and safety. We also discussed more with the scientific method and TOOK SOME NOTES. Tomorrow we will continue to explore variables and good scientific experimentation. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY you can take the SWYK during lunch, after school, or in HomeBase study hall on Thursday. Print those NOTES for page 18 in the notebook! Be sure to get safety contracts and syllabus surveys done!!!
September 18th, 2018
You have an important SWYK tomorrow for lab equipment and safety! I WOULD REVIEW WITH THIS VIDEO LINK (it's funny). You may choose to challenge yourself with THIS POWERPOINT REVIEW. Set aside at least 10 minutes to review equipment and safety. IF YOU MISSED CLASS TODAY be ready for the SWYK tomorrow!!! Get SAFETY CONTRACTS signed and turned in!
