                                    iii)  Right
                                    iv)  Total measure of interior angles.
            B. Naming angles.
            C.  Area formula. (2 dimensional)
                        1. Square
                        2.  Rectangle
                        3. Triangle
            D. Surface area.

                   C. A bit on “The Martian” to introduce PROTEINS.  Tomorrow’s focus will be on PHOTOSYNTHESIS.

III.   STEAM
            A.  An experiment to continue with VARIABLES. Does changing the weight on the end of a string cause the pendulum to swing faster or slower. (Or no change.)

            B.  Video clip on running an experiment to determine the diameter of Earth.
