  • Expalanation of anatomy and physiology of all topics discussed in class.
  • Integration of vocabulary words and lab. pictures into presentation.

DUE DATE:  Wed. 13th

End of year project: Mapping mass movements

Everyone will :

  • be working with a partner for this project.
  • research an event that has produced extraodinary mass movement in any country/city. Research paper should not exceed 3 pages and needs to include but is not limited to the following: Country, city, date, type of event that caused the mass movement, type of mass movement, explanation of mass movement, effects of mass movement on the land, structures, life , measures taken to aid and reduce possibilities of other occurrences and analysis of land elevationd and features before and after event and mass movement.
  • draw two topographic maps based on instructions provided in class that illustrate changes of land elevation and shape; one before mass movement and one after mass movement.  Maps must include picture of area.

*Research information and maps will be presented in class.

Newton’s Cradle

With a partner, you will build a Newton’s cradle and bring it to class on Tuesday April 17th.

Using your Newton’c cradle, you and your partner will explain:

  • Work
  • Friction
  • Potential energy
  • Kinetic energy
  • Conservation of energy
  • Conservation of momentum
  • Elastic collisions
  • Inelastic collisions
  • Newton’s first law
  • Newton’s third law

*You and your partner are free to choose the size and materials for your cradle as long as it functions properly.

Newton’s Laws Project

You will work  in groups ( Science fair groups) to complete the following scenarios:

  • Newton’s first law
  • Inertia and Motion
  • Balanced and Unbalanced forces
  • Newton’s Second Law
  • Newton’s Third Law

For each of the bullets listed above each group needs to write 2 statements. Each statement must be confirmed or disapproved through a scenario that must be acte out by the members of the group, recorded in a video and brought in to class on Thursday February the 8th for 20 points


October Project

  • Each group will be responsible for a class presentation on their assigned topic, where they will explain whom the scientist was, what led the scientists to perform the experiment, describe what the experiment consisted of in detail, and the findings and later contributions of the experiment to the atomic structure of he atom.
  • Each group will also be responsible for constructing a model that illustrates their presentation.atom-light-640x360

Group 1: J.J. Thomson’s experiments with cathode ray tubes.

Group 2: Ernest Rutherford’s gold foil experiment.

Group 3: The Rutherford experiment by Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden that resulted in the discovery of the atomic nucleus.

Group 4: James Chadwick’s discovery of the neutron.

Group 5: Types of radiation ( Alpha, gamma, and beta)



October Project

Each group will have a class presentation explaining the assigned concepts and illustrating these with a habitat/ecosystem illustration which will be used by the group to explain the relationships and inter dependence present.

Group 1: Biodiversity, ecosystem, environment, keystone species

Group 2: Biomes, ecosystems, communities, population, individuals

Group 3: Food webs, types of producers, types of consumers,

Group 4: Aquatic and Terrestrial biomes, Abiotic and biotic factors.

Group 5: Types of niche, species that affect niches, edge effect on populations.


October Project

Using the following concepts each group will create an images only presentation. Each image will be utilized to explain each concept and answer questions in class. Keep in mind that for several concepts you can use only one image.

  • Frame of reference
  • Displacement
  • Positive displacement
  • Negative displacement
  • Velocity
  • Speed
  • Average velocity
  • Instantaneous velocity
  • Slope
  • Rise
  • Run
  • Acceleration
