Homework 


Wed 6/3

TEST MAKE-UP:  Schedule with Mr. O... Make sure your name is on the list...

Work on your project...  RudeGoldbergproject.doc

Take survey (if not completed already)

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=d7Q0w_2feaZmCsC6dV0imYNA_3d_3d 

BRING YOUR TEXTBOOK TO SCHOOL  for return on Wed... Otherwise, return it on your own this week.

 

Mon  6/1

No weekly summary is due.

Work on your project (Rube Goldberg).

NOTE: There is a lot of anxiety about the 60 x 60 x 60 cm requirements and the 20 transitions... Please DO NOT GET HUNG UP on this part of the project!  These are guidelines.  They were put forward to help guide you into producing a quality machine that truly demonstrates what you have learned.  If you fudge these parameters a bit it is OK.  But DO THE BEST YOU CAN!  This is your big project to demonstrate your accumulated knowledge & ability to apply what we have studied all year.  The only thing you should stress over is DOING A GOOD, HIGH QUALITY JOB and please have some fun!

 Note... Think of the 3 minutes as a competition... Do the best you can! Get as close (or beyond) as you can.... If you don't make it... You don't make it.  If you make it, GREAT!  But don't let any one part of this project break you down!


P.S.... You've had all semester to work on your vocab project??? And you stressed about that on the night before it was due?!?!

 

Please print your time line and PhET evaluations. (Be sure you include three evaluations).


Wed 5/27

Hope you had a good holiday!

Please complete the following survey:
