Chemistry 112- We reviewed notes on Metallic Bonding.  Questions p. 199 # 14-22 and p. 203 #23-29 were given to work on.  They are not for homework, but they are good to do.  We will correct them tomorrow.

Science 9- Tomorrow we start our new unit on Space.  We were in the computer lab today working on Genius Hour Projects

Biology 112- Students were given a fill in the blank sheet to learn about Protists.  We will continue working on the sheet tomorrow.  The sheet is not for homework.

Chemistry 112- Students have a test tomorrow in class.  Test is on compounds- ionic, molecular and acid and bases.  If you come across anything you are not sure of tonight, make sure to ask me in the morning before the test.

Science 9- The test has been moved to monday. Needles were given today which called some students out of class, therefore missing the review.  The review will continue tomorrow.

Biology 112- The test will be tomorrow for bacteria will be tomorrow.  A reveiw was done in class today.

Chemistry 112- Students reviewed ionic compounds (binary ionic, multivalent and polyatomic) today in class with examples.  A sheet was passed out to practice writing the compound names and formulas.  This sheet is not for homework.  We will continue to work on it in class tomorrow.

Science 9-We finished discussing our Genetic Research Projects. Student will have a quiz on Mitosis and Cell reproduction on Friday. We will be reviewing tomorrow in class.

Biology 112- Worksheet on classification


Posted: October 17, 2017


Chemistry 112- Today we started a new unit- Compounds.  Students were given notes today and they should be reviewing these notes to make sure they understand the topic.

Science 9- Today we reviewed some genetic research projects in class.  We will continue with the rest tomorrow.  Student groups were responsible for making a presentation to detail genetic projects given in class.  

Biology 112- Today we continued discussing classification and students were given a dichotomous key to start working on.  It was not for homework so they can continue working on it tomorrow in class.
