Log on to Schoology for daily class updates!   Contact me by phone or preferably email; I should have office hours 8:00AM through 3:00PM Monday through Friday while we are shut down.  When I am allowed to be in the building you will normally find me here from 8:00AM - 3:00PM weekdays.     You can always email me outside of my office hours, that is not a problem at all, but I may not get to the email until office hours.

Assignments posted on Monday, April 6, assigned Friday, April 10, and due by Friday, April 17:    For older class assignments, scroll down.

Physical Science:   First, check ProgressBook to make sure that you are current on assignments.   Two students did not yet do the 3/27 assignments and several students have not yet submitted the 4/3 assignments.  Scroll down to read those and do those first before you start the following assignments for 4/10.    Assignment 1:   Read pages 120 through 127 and complete Practice Problems #26 and 27 from page 126.   Assignment 2:  Complete Section Review questions #28 through 33 from page 127.   It will be better, faster, and easier to do the work if you follow along with the video descriptions in the Week42 videos to check your work when you are done before you submit the assignments.  The videos will not be available on Monday; check for them on Tuesday. 

Chemistry:   First submit the 4/3 assignments before you start on this weekś work; scroll down to get those details.  Two students still need to turn that in.   For Friday, April 10,  read pages 452 through 459 and complete Section Review questions 31 through 37 from page 459.  This assignment is a little short because the last one ran a little long.  Before you submit your work, check your solutions using the Week42 videos.   Those will not be available on Monday.  

Physics:     First check to make sure that you have first completed the 4/3 assignments and get that submitted.     For 4/10,   Assignment 1:   Read pages 332 through 337 and complete the Practice 9D Problems 1 through 3 from page 337 and Section Review questions 1 through 3 from page 337.   You may find these problems challenging.     Assignment 2:  You should be more familiar with from chemistry;  Read pages 338 through 341 and complete Practice 9E Problems 1 through 3 from page 341 and Section Review questions 1 through 5 from page 341.   Before you submit your work, follow the solutions in the Week42 videos. 

Organic Chemistry:    Read pages 163 through 172  and complete Questions 4.22 through 4.30           You will probably need me to lecture on at least some of the topics using the models in a video, so communicate to me what you are not understanding on that and later this week I will produce a few videos.  

 

Assignments posted on Monday, March 30, assigned for Friday, April 3, and due by Friday, April 10:      For older assignments by class, scroll down.

Assignments posted on Monday, March23, assigned for Friday, March 27, and due by Friday, April 3:

Physical Science:  I recommend that you log into Schoology and investigate the work from there.    Submit your name into the Discussion so that we all can communicate.   Read the assignment listed there for Friday, March 27; it's the same as this.  You can submit your homework into that assignment like we did with your name at the beginning of the year.   Here are the 2 assignments, there is more detail about them in Schoology:    Assignment 1:  Read pages 106 through 111 and complete Practice Problems 5, 6, and 7 from page 110 and complete Practice Problems 8 and 9 from page 112.    Assignment 2:  Complete Section Review questions 10 through 15 from page 112.                  It will probably be easiest to submit the assignments together, especially if you submit them to the Schoology assignment  Friday, March 27,  but that is up to you.

Chemistry:   Study the completed review work that you did from pages 392 through 395 using the Weekly Notes in Schoology.   Then contact me preferably through the Schoology discussion, but email will work, when you are ready for the test.  I project that I will have that prepared and ready some time Monday afternoon 3/23.   I will monitor feedback through the Schoology discussion, and depending on the feedback I may schedule a Zoom first before I release the test to anyone.   Remember that I can't assign the work until Friday, but you can do it on Monday.   So I will have to get feedback from you what you are collectively ready for.  

Physics:  Log into Schoology and read the assignment and particularly the Discussion.  I need you to participate in the Discussion.   Remember to log into your Google Mail first, and then view, through Schoology and EdPuzzle, the following 5 videos located in Schoology under the folders "Videos" and "week39 videos":  JSM Lesson 14 - Pascal's Principle,   JSM Lesson 10 - Atmospheric Pressure,   JSM Lesson 13 - Archimedes' Principle,   Falkirk Wheel,  and JSM Lesson 8 - Adventures with Bernoulli.   

Organic Chemistry:  First log onto Schoology and participate in the Discussion and the work we are doing  in assignments, weekly notes, etc.     From page 149, complete Exercises 4.12 and 4.13 and check your work in the weekly notes.
