WEEK 9 (5/25-5/29)  DUE WED. MAY27

1) Click HERE to take a student feedback survey for Mr. Hanna's Physical Science Advanced class.

There are 10 survey questions to complete.  You should be able to access this form on a computer or mobile device (such as a phone).  Your answers will be anonymous, so PLEASE BE HONEST in order for me to get the best feedback possible!  Remember to click "Submit" at the bottom once you've finished.

2) Be sure to submit all of your missing assignments (Weeks 3-8) to Mr. Hanna by Wednesday, May 27th.

Check your grades in FOCUS!  I had several students who had emailed me assignments but for various reasons did not get credit (which I fixed once I found out).  Please double check that you got credit for your work!

3) Come to school Tuesday, June 2nd at the designated time (see link below) to clean out your locker, turn in materials, collect yearbook/shirts/etc...

Click HERE for the locker clean-out schedule.

WEEKS 7 & 8:  May11-15 & May18-22  Due Fri. May 22

WEEKS 7 & 8 OVERVIEW: Weeks 7 & 8 will continue our life science review of 7th grade standards (some of you learned this last year in 6th grade advanced science and some of you missed it by not taking 7th grade science this year).  These concepts will be very important to those of you who take Biology Honors next year for a high school credit.

 

WEEK 7 (5/11-5/15)  DUE FRI. MAY22

IMPORTANT (PLEASE READ): This week, we take what we learned last week about heredity and use it to look at the bigger picture of how traits are passed through many, many generations and how that leads to changes in populations of animals over time.  This concept has a name that can be a touchy subject for some, "evolution".  Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation out there about evolution and people will "tune out" without understanding what the theory actually says.  Week 7 will discuss the mechanics of species change (how it happens) using the concept of heredity that is far less controversial.  Next week, we'll discuss evidence for the scientific theory of evolution by natural selection as well as some of the common misconceptions that create much of the controversy.

WEEKS 5 & 6:  Apr27-May1 & May4-8   DUE: Fri. May8

WEEKS 5-6 OVERVIEW: Week 5 will wrap up our study of physics (and our physical science standards!) with a look at Newton's Laws of Motion, which tie together what we learned about forces and motion the last two weeks.

Week 6 will begin a short review of life science & Earth science content that some of you may have missed if you didn't take the 6th grade advanced science class last year (things that would have been taught in a general 7th grade class).  For those of you who did have the 6th grade advanced class, you may need a refresher on some of this stuff before you move on to your high school courses next year.

WEEKS 3 & 4: Apr. 13-17 & 20-24     DUE: Fri., April 24

WEEKS 3-4 OVERVIEW: These weeks will begin our transition back to "normal" (at least our "new normal").  We'll be discussing new content that would have been covered if we'd returned to school after spring break.

We left off having completed our study of energy with mechanical energy.  That leads us into motion (remember, kinetic energy is the energy of motion) this week.  We'll study the difference between speed and velocity, calculate acceleration, and interpret motion graphs.  This topic will lead us into our study of forces in weeks 4 & 5.

WEEKS 1 & 2: March 30-April 3 and April 6-April 10

NOTE - These packets were developed by LCS using 7th grade standards.  Because this is a "Bridge to A.P." course, we have been learning a combination of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade physical science standards throughout this year.  However, between the 6th grade bridge science class and this class, you have learned all of the annually assessed middle school science standards with the exception of what I had planned to teach during the 4th 9-weeks (forces and motion, which is a 6th grade standard).  In addition, most of the work is accessible through the reading provided in the packet.

 

Week 1 - click here to download the week 1 LCS packet

Assignments:

1) "Check In" with me via email (just say "hello" or "I'm good" or something) by Friday evening (4/3) or by "popping in" to the scheduled Zoom session on Wednesday afternoon and saying "hello".

Wednesday 4/1 between 2:00-2:30pm

- You will not need to stay in the meeting the whole time, it is just to check in with me and ask questions if you have them.

- You can pop into the meeting any time within the 30 minute window, you do not need to be there right at 2:00pm.

- If you have already checked in via email, you do not need to participate in this meeting unless you have questions about something.

2) Read the articles, "How Water Loss Affects Biodiversity" and "Water from the Air: Cloud Forests".  Answer questions 1-6 on pages 7-9 of the packet.  Email me the answers by FRIDAY, APRIL 10th at hannar2@leonschools.net.

OFFICE HOURS FOR WEEK 1:

- Email: nightly 8:30-9:30 for an immediate response
