Chem 112-  Today students were to pass in their chemistry assignment. Students got this assignment on Tuesday.  We worked on writing up the Candium Lab today that we did in class.  The lab write up is due on Monday Sept 25.

Science 9- Students were given back the marks on their cell quiz.  They were given a cell review that is to be completed for tomorrow.  We will review it in class tomorrow then we will work on our Genius Hour projects.  Each student will be provided with a composition book tomorrow to record their results.  Remember, please think of an idea you would like to start searching tomorrow.

Biology 112- Students finished up their e labs and were given worksheet to complete for Monday.  A quiz will be coming up next week on the cells and functions.

Chemistry 112- Chemistry assignment due tomorrow (it was assigned on Tuesday). We will work on the Candium Lab in class tomorrow using the results you got from class today.

Science 9- Today students completed a cell quiz today.  They discussed their topics for Genius hour and they were assigned a sheet for homework.  To complete the sheet, students have to write out the proper function of a cell part and then compare it to a school function.  We did the first two in class as examples.

Biology 112- Students did a microscope mini quiz at the beginning of class.  They copied notes on prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and they were given a sheet with two cell diagrams to complete using their textbook. We will review it tomorrow.

Chemistry 112- Today we went over a worksheet given Monday in class on atomic mass and atomic number.  We reviewed a problem with calculating atomic mass of elements. An assignment was given today in class and it is due on Thursday.

Science 9- Quiz on cells will be tomorrow.  There was an assembly during period 2, so the quiz will be written in class tomorrow.

Biology 112- Students have a mini quiz on the microscope tomorrow.  Sheets were given in class and they are to be used to study.

Chemistry 112- Students had a mini quiz on the periodic table.  Students were given a worksheet to complete for tomorrow.  The worksheet will be corrected in class together.  The lab is due in class tomorrow.

Science 9- Today we continued our discussion on cells.  Students were given a blank cell sheet to fill in and a crossword to complete with the cell functions.  Tomorrow there will be a mini quiz on the cell parts and functions.

Biology 112-  Students wrote a test on spontaneous generation and scientists.  They completed getting the results for their scientific method lab. The lab is due tomorrow in class.

Chemistry 112- We worked on a lab testing the properties of unknown substances.  For any students who did not finish, you can finish in class on Monday and hand it in that day.  

There will be a mini quiz on the periodic table and periodic law on Monday, Sept 18.


Science 9- The students were introduced to our new project that we will be working on throughout the year.  We will be conducting a "Genius Hour" each week in which the student will be able to work on projects of their choice. They were asked to brain storm some ideas over the weekend.  They will be able to work on their projects during the week in class only if they have completed the other work we do in the Science curriculum.
