There will be a test focussing on topic 6/16 but including work from all of grade 11 in two weeks time (see Veracross for details).
You continue to have study hall. You should use the time wisely to begin to prepare for the upcoming test as this will be the biggest test of your abilities so far. Make sure you begin to review the work from the beginning of the year. Study can take the following forms:
Reorganising and rewriting your notes and summaries for each topic
Creating a detailed concept map for each topic
Include links to other topics
Include diagrams where relevant
Include examples where relevant
Use the syllabus to make sure you have included everything you need for the topic. The full syllabus can be found on my blog or you can use the statements at the beginning of each chapter in your text.
Discuss any concepts or points or ideas that you don’t quite understand. You can do this by:
Posting the question on google+
Skyping/messaging/google hangouting etc with your peers
Sending me an email
Making flash cards on quizlet or on paper of definitions and diagrams that need memorising.
Working through calculation problems already done in class or new ones from the links on Google+ community, problems in your text book, problems from trusted sites on the internet (start with those linked to Google+ community)
Only after doing all this should you then go to past paper questions for practice.
We need to finish your experiment. Please follow the instructions below.
All reaction rates should have been calculated and entered here. If the table isn’t big enough, make it bigger to fit in your result.
Make your own copy of the spreadsheet.
Use a formula on the spreadsheet to calculate the average for each mixture and put the result in the averages sheet along with the initial concentrations of the three solutions from the instructions. (Look at the second tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet).
Deduce the rate expression for the reaction and your value for k and post it as a comment under this google+ post.
Grade 10 C
Ask your mum for a plastic supermarket shopping bag that you can destroy!
Follow the instruction on the activity sheet found here or on the google classroom.
Answer the questions at the bottom of the sheet.
We will be using this activity as a basis to plan an investigation next week so make sure you get it done! 🙂
Grade 7 C
In order to make sure you can write about your reasons for your hypothesis and to explain your conclusion, you need to know how the ear works. So today, you can learn about that. Here is what you need to do:
Log in to BrainPop using your 9 dots thing.
Watch the video called “hearing”
There are three activities for this video. Complete these ones:
You DO NOT need to do the graphic organiser
Do the Classic quiz. You need to repeat it until you get at least 8/10.
I will be checking that this is complete at the end of the day. Have fun!
I know this is supposed to be tutor period but we are going to use it for Science today! I would like you to work on the Investigating Atoms activity. It is on the google classroom for Science. Some of you started it before break. AB got quite far with it so if you have any problems she can help you.
If you finish early, you can log in to BrainPop and choose some video on atoms to watch.
As you know, I’m at the Chiku Centre but that doesn’t mean you get to miss out on work. Here is was you need to do. I’ll be back by period 2 to check up on you! 🙂
The Periodic Table of Elements
Make sure you are logged in to BrainPop using the nine dots on the top right corner of your gmail.
If you didn’t finish the activity from yesterday, using your headphones, watch the video again and finish the sheet. (You can handwrite the rest of the answers on it).
Take the classic quiz for Periodic Table of Elements video. You need to get at least 8/10 before moving to the next step! I will check your result!
In this activity, you are going to use the simulation found here. You are going to work with a partner. you might like to have the simulation open on one computer and use your iPads to access the google doc through your google classroom app.
Click on the simulation below and then click on atom.
Play with the simulation. Try dragging protons, neutrons and electrons into the atom and see what happens.
In the Google Classroom, there is an activity for you called Investigating Atoms.
Open the Investigating Atoms doc on your iPad, through Google Classroom.
On the simulation, make sure all three boxes under Show are ticked.
You are aiming to build neutral atoms that are stable. They should look like this example for Helium.
Complete the table on the google doc. The first row is for Helium and I’ve filled it in for you from the picture above.
Follow the rest of the instructions on the google doc.
