- Current Events: Two (2) notes on Antarctica. The deepest place on land was found on the continent of Antarctica.
- Discussion of the difference between Antarctica and the Arctic Ocean. Time to discuss climate change and the thinning of the Arctic ice sheet. A good tie in with todays concept of ENERGY and sea level rise.
- Notes: ENERGY as being about movement. Yesterday we review molecules and atoms and today we had notes and a color-in diagram sheet on how molecules move in solids, liquids, and gasses.
- Bringing the discussion full circle we related ENERGY to sea level rise and climate change as water molecules take up more space - increase in volume - as ocean temperatures increase and water is added to the oceans from melting glaciers.
A. Warm up / Classwork: Practice with substituting values for variables and introducing algebraic expressions.
B. Review of calculating percents.
C. Notes: Deeper discussion (begun yesterday) on how to divide mixed numbers and fractions.
D. Homework - Unit 4, Lesson 4. - We’ll review tomorrow in class.
