9/21  Rounding to the Nearest Tenths/Hundreths video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CyZjgqGBf_c
9/24  Index cards due tomorrow: 1 for each concept... description on one side illustration on the other.
Know how to round numbers to the tenth 0.5, to the hundredth 0.53 and thousandth 0.531
Know Scientific Notation  - 345,876 à 3.45 x 105
Use Rate of Change Formula
The relationships on a graph can be described as direct, inverse, independent, or cyclic.
Cyclic Relationships repeat and are predictable (ex Moon Phases, Tides, Seasons) Be able to tell the cycle length by measuring the time from crest to crest
Density is how close or compact the molecules are
As Temperature Increases, molecules spread out (Volume Increases) and Density Decreases
As Pressure Increases, molecules move closer together and Density Increases
The same objects have the same density NO MATTER WHAT SIZE
Water is most dense at 4°C in the liquid form (density is 1 g/cm3)
Everything else is most dense in the solid form
For objects with densities less than 1, the lower it is the higher it floats
Observations are facts derived from the environment by using the five senses.  Ex: The book is yellowish.
In inferences are conclusions or predictions based on your observations.  Ex: The rock is old.
Your senses can be extended (made more precise) by using instruments.  Ex: The book is 22cm.
Classification is organizing observations in a meaningful way.  Ex: The book is science fiction.
Mass- the amount of matter n an object.
Volume- the amount of space an object occupies.

10/29 INDEX CARDS for unit concepts
1. The altitude of Polaris (North Star) above the horizon is the same as the observer’s latitude
2. Polaris is located above the Earth’s axis  of rotation
3. You can only see Polaris in the  northern hemisphere - always have to look  north  to see Polaris.
4.  As a persons latitude increases, the altitude of Polaris increases If you’re at  90°N, then Polaris is 90◦ above the horizon- If you are at 0° then Polaris is 0°   .
5.  Latitude  Lines run left to right (horizontal) but measures distances north  and south of the equator.
6.  Longitude  Lines run up and down (vertically) but measure east and west of the Prime Meridian.
7. Approximate latitude of NY is  41  to 45°N, 72 to 79 °W.
8. Longitude is based on earth’s rotation of 15°/hr and the sun’s apparent motion.
9. If you travel west time becomes less, if you travel east, time will increase!
10. The closer the isolines (contour, isobar, isotherm) the greater (steeper)  the slope (gradient).
11. Contour lines always bend at a stream forming a “V”  that points in the opposite direction of flow.
12. Contour Interval – the elevation increase between two contour lines, Ocean/ sea level = 0.
13. Streams always flow from  high to low elevation.

11/19 UNIT TEST MONDAY - Minerals and Rocks - index cards for test

1. Rocks are classified based on origin (how they are formed)
2. Igneous rocks form from the solidification  (crystallization) of molten material (lava or magma.)
3. Igneous exhibit intergrown/interlocking mineral crystals.
4. Vesicular texture – gas pockets (porous). An example would be the rock Pumice, Scoria, etc
5. If an igneous rock cools extremely fast, the rock will exhibit a  glassy texture.
6. When an igneous rock cools fast, small crystals form.
7. When an igneous rock cools slowly, large crystals form.
8. Intrusive =  below  ground.
9. Extrusive =  above  ground.
10. Mafic rocks are dark colored with a high density.
11. Felsic rocks are light colored  with a  low density.
12. Clastic sedimentary rocks are formed by the  compaction and cementation of sediments.
13. Bioclastic – form from the compaction and cementation of organic matter.
14. Crystalline sedimentary rocks form from the  evaporation of water and  precipitation of dissolved mineral from a solution.
15. Only rock type to contain fossils -  sedimentary
16. Metamorphic rocks from pre-existing rocks that have been altered due  heat and/or pressure
17. Metamorphic rocks may be foliated (banding.)
18. Key words for Metamorphic rocks are ; foliation, re-crystallize, distorted structure.
19. Mineral properties such as cleavage and hardness depend on the internal arrangement of the molecules.
20. The most common mineral is quartz (composed of silicon and oxygen.)
21. Cleavage- the tendency for a mineral to break along  smooth flat  surfaces.
22. Hardness – the resistance  to being scratched
23. Weathering- Break down of rocks at the earth’s surface into sediments
24. Sediments – broke down pieces of rock

12/14  - 12/15  Index Cards
1. Folds, faults,  tilts provide evidence that the earth’s crust has moved.
2. Earthquake is a sudden movement along a fault, usually happens at  plate boundaries.
3. Tsunamis(tidal wave) caused by underwater earthquake.
4. Fossils of marine life found at high elevation are evidence of  uplift.
5. Evidence of continental drift (pangea) – The puzzle like appearance of the continents (South America/Africa) South America and Africa have same: fossils, rock layers. Climactic evidence (i.e. glacier in Africa?)
6. Mid-Ocean ridges (spreading center) are areas where  new crust is being created as tectonic plates move apart.
7. Divergent plate boundary – Two plates move apart.
8. Convergent  - two plates move toward one another.
9. Proof of sea floor spreading -1- the age of the ocean floor is  youngerat the mid ocean ridges and gets  olderas you move away in either direction. 2. There is also a matching pattern of earth’s magnetic polarity on either side of the ridge.
10. Inferences about Earth’s interior come from the study of  seismic waves .
11. Earthquakes and volcanoes happen in the same spot, near  plate boundaries.
12.  Hot Spots are not associated with plate boundaries –magma burns through plate = a series of islands (Hawaii).
13. Continental crust is  older with a density of 2.7 g/cm3  and is composed of granite .
14. Oceanic crust is  younger, with a density of 3.0 g/cm3 and is composed of basalt
15. When a continental plate collides with an oceanic plate the oceanic plate subducts because it more dense.
16. Transform Boundary Plates slide past each other (San Andres Fault).
17. Subduction zones/Trenches are where  oceanic crust is destroyed. (Recycled).
18.  Convection Currents in the asthenosphere (mantle) cause the plates to move.

January 5 - index cards due Friday and can be used on test
1. P- Waves travel  faster  than S- waves.
2. P waves travel through  solids & liquids , but S- waves through solids  only.
3. We can infer that the outer core is  liquid because waves cannot penetrate it.
4. One seismic station can determine the  distance  to the epicenter.
5. As the distance from the epicenter increases, the time lag between the P sand the S wave increases
6. You need  3  seismic stations to plot an epicenter. (Where three circles meet).
