    Today we completed our notes on science and the scientific method. For homework, students should complete Part IV of the note packet, Practice Problem A-G. This should be completed by the beginning of class on Friday.
     
    Students were also a writing assignment, using examples from the movie "October Sky," and the scientific method.  Their rough draft is due in class next Wed. with the final copy due next Friday. The grading rubric is in their movie Question Packet.

    We will continue our study of the scientific method, or problem solving, by continuing the movie "October Sky." Students are completing a question sheet as we watch and discuss examples from the movie. 
     
     
    Next week, students will be assigned a written Lab Report on "October Sky." They were given the information in class on Thursday. The link is below.

    We continued with the scientific method by making modifications and rebuilding the paper towers. This process involved evaluating, gathering information, forming a hypothesis, testing, and measuring.   Students were to take  picture with their freestanding tower and email it to me at mbramblett@tcss.net.

    We began our study of the scientific method by constructing freestanding paper towers. Students were given five pieces of paper and 30 cm of tape to construct the tallest freestanding tower possible.
