Thurs, 1/11
     Develop a study plan for midterms 
Friday, 1/12
     Continue to develop your plan to prepare for Science midterm (see materials posted in Links)
          Consider 1. What topic in the content area do you need to refresh or review? 
                          2. What materials will you need for the study strategy you will use?  
                          3. How much time will you spend on this each night?
Tues, 1/16
     Midterm Review (If you have a targeted plan stick to it. If you did not plan based on your own learning, I suggest you review Ch2 Sec2 - Newton's Laws of Motion.
                                 Spend 15-20 min creating a chart of each law including the wording of the 3 laws, important terms, formulas, or concepts, then give examples of each.
                                 Try the section review on p51 or practice some Second Law Math problems.)
Wed, 1/17
     Midterm Review (If you have a targeted plan stick to it. If you did not plan based on your own learning, I suggest you review Ch2 Sec1 - Gravity and Motion.
                                 Spend 15-20 min working on vocabulary by using flashcards that break down the term, class word, and limiting features, and match them up with each other.
                                 Try the section review on p43 or practice problems calculating the change in velocity of falling objects.)
Thurs, 1/18
     Midterm Review (If you have a targeted plan stick to it. If you did not plan based on your own learning, I suggest you review Ch1 Sec4 - Gravity.
                                  Spend 15-20 min preparing a t-chart comparing mass and gravity adding as many comparable features as possible.
                                  Try the section review on p25 or practice calculating a change in an object mass* and weight on another planet.[That's a trick because mass does not change. 
                                  You only need to calculate a change in weight as gravitational force changes.])
Fri, 1/19
     Midterm Review (if you have a targeted plan stick to it. If you did not plan based on your own learning, I suggest you review Ch1 Sec 3 - Friction.
                                 Spend 15-20 min preparing graphs that show the relationship between Force and Friction and Roughness and Friction. 
                                 Describe the shape of the line in as many ways as you can. Try the section review on p19 and list example of all types of friction. Are they helpful or harmful?)
Mon, 1/22
      Midterm Review (if you have a targeted plan stick to it. If you did not plan based on your own learning, I suggest you review Ch1 Sec2 - Force.
                                 Spend 15-20 min comparing net force to Newton's 3rd Law and listing examples of balanced and unbalanced forces at work on everyday objects.
                                 Try the section review on p13 and practice some problems calculating net force when multiple forces are acting on an object.)
Tues, 1/23
       Midterm Review (if you have a targeted plan stick to it. If you did not plan based on your own learning, I suggest you review Ch1 Sec1 - Measuring Motion.
                                  Create a table comparing speed, velocity, and acceleration. Compare by units of measure, tools used to measure, how to graph them, etc.
                                  Spend 15-20 min on this chart or try the section review on p9. Be sure to practice problems calculating speed, resultant velocity, and average acceleration.
                                  Include deceleration. Know the definitions of terms for this section of text.)
Wed 1/24
      Midterm Review (if you have a targeted plan stick to it. If you did not plan based on your own learning, I suggest you review Inquiry Skills using the practice test in the links                                            section of this website. Spend 20-25 looking up information in your notes if you are not sure of the answers. Bring me your completed practice test.
                                  I will have you check it against a key to confirm your answers.)
Thurs, 1/25
      Midterm Review (if you have a targeted plan stick to it. If you did not plan based on your own learning, I suggest you practice interpreting tables and graphs from notes.
                                  Also spend 25-30 creating tables and graphs from information in your notes and practice sheets previously provided.) 
     Be sure to get enough sleep!!
