Study your energy in the atmosphere picture. Thursday- Can Crusher Lab Please bring a few empty aluminum cans to class on Friday for use in a fun lab. This is not a graded lab, but is a fun way to learn about the awesome relationship between temperature and air pressure.
Today in Class:
Hand back quizzes
Work on 3.0 information from section 1
Read Section 2
Work on Scales
Test and Quiz Retake Policy
Quizzes: All quizzes may be retaken until the day of the unit/chapter test. Scores on the retakes will replace the earlier score. Example: quiz 8/10 retake 10/10 The 10/10 will be placed into the grade book. Conditions: Student must show something that they did differently to prepare for the quiz.
Tests: All chapter tests may be retaken for up to a passing grade. Retest must be taken within 2 weeks of the original test. Example: Chapter Test 12/25 48% Chapter Retest 20/25 80% This retake score would be placed into the grade book as a 15/25 60% Conditions: Student must show something that they did differently to prepare for the test.
Rational: Quizzes are used to provide feedback to both the teacher and student about how their learning is progressing. Allowing retakes will provide students additional motivation to go back and learn missed concepts. This will also help them prepare for the chapter test. Tests are used to provide evidence of learning and achievement. Retakes offer an opportunity to both demonstrate that learning has occurred and that achievement should be reevaluated.
