Mr. Woodworth (Science)

Welcome to Mr. Woodworth’s Eighth Grade Science Class! I look forward to working with both students and parents throughout the year. I am dedicated to the academic and social development of all students and will push everyone to do his or her best. I believe that each student can and will learn when they come to school willing to put forth their best effort.

Current Unit

Our current unit is Unit 2, Energy Types, Transfers, and Transformations.  We will continue to work on improving scientific skills such as: identifying the parts of an experiment, creating a hypothesis, identifying the controls and constants in an experiment, analyzing and interpreting data, and formulating conclusions using multiple sources of information.  We will practice these skills while designing and running experiments which help students learn about the characteristics and properties of Energy.  During this unit we will focus our studies on: Elastic energy, Thermal energy, Potential energy, Kinetic energy,  and Waves (including Light, Sound, Seismic, Water, and Electromagnetic).  This will give us an opportunity to further our inquiries into Energy in all of its forms and through all of its interactions. We should finish this unit right before our winter break.

Quizzes and Tests
There are C.F.Us (Checks for Understanding) daily in class.  Our second major assessment will occur the third week of December.
