2019-2020 Google Classrooms and Textbook Logins

Welcome Back for 2019-20!  We have a lot of fun ahead and this year is going to be different in a lot of ways.

Take a look around the web page.  You’ll notice a black banner above with links to some other pages including links our syllabi and and a really brief introduction to this classroom.

If you are looking for blog entries specific to your class, there are 2 new categories : Biology and Physical Science.  Just click on the category to the left and you see only the entries that pertain to your class.

We’ll be using online textbooks for both classes so the log-on information will be posted here if you ever forget how to get into the “tech”books.

For Physical Science it’s Discovery Ed, or DE; found here: https://bethel.discoveryeducation.com/.  Our logins go as follows:

  • Username:  bsd1234@bsd.k12.or.us (1234 represents student id #)
  • Password:  AA1234  (AA represents your initials as capital letters and 1234 is your student id #)
  • It is my understanding that the passwords are now your studentID + your initials. please try both ways if you are struggling to log-in.

For Biology, we now use links through our Google Classroom to access the text. We will be using Google Classroom extensively, so get started by using the correct code to enroll yourself:

Biology 3: tomlfpa

Biology 4: iupoeks

Tuesday 9/18 plans

Today we will finish our work with Metric, Equipment, and Safety by turning in our completed Metric Measure Labs. Our Focus today is to review the key components of Scientific Method and Experimental Design. We’ll be talking about the scientific process in all forms and finishing with how to design an experiment.
The Variable Practice will be homework due next class.

Agenda:

1- Turn in Metric Measures Lab

2- Study for Quiz

3- Quiz! hopefully. . .

4- Lecture slides and videos on Scientific Method and Experimental Design

5- Dinos and Asteroids Reading and Discussion questions  and Video

6- Variable Practice Worksheets (homework)

A lighter subject

Today we will take notes on the whole EM Spectrum.  We have guided notes to help us follow but you should also take another look at the slides to make sure you didn’t miss something important!

We’ll also take another quiz on mechanical waves, and you’ll make your own EM Spec diagram.
Here is the Rubric on which you’ll be graded for the EM Spectrum Diagram.

Today we’ll  start by taking a Quiz over types of waves and the Doppler effect.  Then we’ll review the EM spectrum with a video from NASA.  Be sure to take notes on each of the classes of EM waves in the video and their applications to help you make a poster later.

For the last part of class,  and you’ll make your own EM Spec diagram as a color poster.
You can use the EM spectrum diagram from the blue textbook: p. 70-71
Use a strip of paper from the back bench and Mr. Siedler’s colored pencils.
You’ll be graded on neatness but will also need:
  • 7 classes of waves
  • Wave Frequency in numbers (Hz) along a line
  • Arrows showing increasing energy
  • Examples of the wave source or technology that uses that class of wave
  • Objects about the size of a single wave
Here is the Rubric on which you’ll be graded for the EM Spectrum Diagram.

 

Solar Assignment:

Here’s the link to the hard copy you need to fill out

Here is the Link for the Solar Panel System here at Willamette High: http://live.deckmonitoring.com/?id=willamette_high_school

Answer the questions on this google form to get credit for the assignment:

 

 

 

This Unit is Wave Better Than the Last.

This week we started on a new unit: Waves

First we started this unit with a set of slides and some demos describing waves in general.

After this we worked on measuring waves with our wave worksheets:
This is one,  this is the other.

The next class, we had some slides on how to change waves. Through changing the medium, or the relative speed of the source or what it bounces off of (Doppler)
Here are my slides:


And we ended with some homework calculating wave speed using the wave-speed equation.

Last, we used the computers to complete the assignment (HERE)
Using the Links in Mrs. Peterson’s Web-based Lesson here. 

 

This Energy unit is a real Joule!

Our next unit is Energy, we’ll begin with an over view of forms of energy, focusing on potential and kinetic. Then on to work and power, the Laws of Thermodynamics, and heat flow.

We’ll do some quick review Next we will spend some time interacting with the potential/kinetic energy exchange with the simulation here. The assignment that goes along with it is here.  or here

Work and Power:

Thermodynamics!

Heat Flow

We’ll do a little Lab on observing the 3 forms of heat flow

Intro to physics

This is a new Unit for all of us (me too!).  Some of this I’m putting together as we go along so this post will be updated with activities and notes as we progress through the unit.

We started with notes on establishing how we talk about the motion of objects and defining scalar vs. vector quantities.

The notes are below

Next we had an activity where we explored these concepts and watched a Crash Course video about linear motion:

And on the third day of class we had a brief quiz and then started notes on accleration:

one of my favorite accelerators: the white zombie from Portland

3/15: Well I loved acceleration so much I had to do more here’s our lecture for the end of the week!

The Acceleration “quiz” assignment is here: answer all questions to the best of your ability,  checkout the cheat sheet on the last slide!

We’ve finished with describing motion and started with what causes motion: the force! After Spring break we will cover Newton’s 3 laws. we’ll do some reading in the text in case my yapping at you doesn’t do the job!

The Last set of notes for this unit! Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion!

and a crash course physics
