Details regarding 4x6 note card for the final:  Write or type any information you onto your 4x6 note card for the final (will be distributed on Wed. 12/7),  These are the notes you may use during the final to assist you in case you forget a term or detail.  You are limited to the amount of surface area on each side of the 4x6 card.  You may use both sides.  No flip pages nor paper hanging off allowed; any attached item must be completely secured down to the 4x6 card.  If I am able to get under the attached item, or if it is hanging off of the 4x6 card, I will tear/cut off as much of the attached item as possible.  The 4x6 card must be turned in by Tuesday, 12/13 if you wish to use it during the final.    (I will go over these expectations in class when the 4x6 card is distribued.)

(note: I stated the incorrect dimissal time to first period; 12:20 is the correct dismissal time for finals.)

Details regarding note plate for the final:  Write or type any information you onto your note plate for the final (will be distributed on Wed. 12/7),  These are the notes you may use during the final to assist you in case you forget a term or detail.  You are limited to the amount of surface area on each side of the plate.  You may use both sides.  No flip pages nor paper hanging off allowed; any attached item must be completely secured down to the plate.  If I am able to get under the attached item, or if it is hanging off of the plate, I will tear/cut off as much of the attached item as possible.  The plate must be turned in by Tuesday, 12/13 if you wish to use it during the final.    (I will go over these expectations in class when the plate is distribued.)  .... if you lose your plate, but wish to have notes, you may use a 4x6 card instead (it is a little smaller than the note plate)

M 12.7- Read TB p. 259-267, do SciNB p. 62, add "magnitude"
       and Homework Check # 6 due Thursday at beginning of period. 

Absent Monday?  We filled in SciNB p. 64 and compared the ways to measure earthquakes using Magnitude compared to Intensity, looked at maps of the intensity of the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes.  Also distributed today: HW Check #6, click to download .pdf file: HWcheck6.pdf (33.79 KB)

T 12.8-  Answer TB p. 267 # 1, 2, 3, 8 in SciNB p. 63 using FCS, RSQ
      and finish the Plate Boundary Data Lab (due tomorrow)

Absent Tuesday (or on Field Trip to King Tut)?  Today is a "Catch Up Day" where students must FIRST finish their Plate Boundary Data Lab, and then have an opportunity to get caught up to make sure they have finished all of their assignments for Science.

W 12.9- Finish SciNB p. 63 and 64.
        & Homework Check #6 due tomorrow at the beginning of the period.

Wednesday's computer lab activity link: Determining the Earthquake Epicenter: http://www.sciencecourseware.com/VirtualEarthquake/VQuakeExecute.html

Once you finish Determining the Earthquake Epicenter, you will look at the map of earthquakes on this link.  What can you find out about plate tectonics when you increase the number of earthquakes shown on the map?  Link: http://www.iris.washington.edu/servlet/eventserver/map.do;jsessionid=2814E8E30028F95E6B842C277A826A0C.ranch3_4

Absent Wednesday?  We are in the computer lab.  Go through the process of "Determining the Earthquake Epicenter" using the link above.  After you have found the epicenter, your information will be shown on the screen.  Copy the data of yours and the actual for S-P interval, distance, amplitude and magnitude for all 3 stations onto a paper and submit for credit.

R 12.10- Note plate due Monday; study for final!

Absent Thursday?  Did Homework Check #6, distributed half-a-plate to be used for notes during the final IF it is returned on Monday.  Alternative to the plate, you may write on both sides of a 4x6 card.  Include the information which you will find useful to remember during the test.  Also distributed, a study guide for the final.  Click to download the study guide: 6.Sem1ReviewSheetch1-6.pdf (25.5 KB)

F 12.11- Note plate due Monday; study for final!

Absent Friday?  We practiced finding the epicenter of an earthquake again (this time on paper rather than using the computer).  Once finished, students had time to study for their final.

Hope you enjoyed your long weekend.  Just in case you find yourself with extra time, you're welcome to get ahead!

M 11.30- Read TB p. 246-251, do SciNB p. 56

Absent Monday? We started our Earthquake Timelines in class.  Students should have the time line set up correctly with five (or more) earthquake events on their timeline before they left class today.  Students can do the bonus options listed at the bottom of the grading rubric for up to 9 bonus points.  We will do the bibliography in class together later in the week.

T 12.01- Answer TB p. 251 # 1-3 in SciNB p. 57 and TB p. 251 # 5, 8 in SciNB p. 58 (FCS, RSQ)

Absent Tuesday? Viewed the ch 6 Concepts in Motion video clip titled " Earthquakes and Seismic Waves" (click here to view online resource so you may watch it).  We wrote notes into the bottom SciNB p. 57 and filled in the both parts of p. 58.

W 12.02- Read TB p. 252-258, do SciNB p. 59, add "focus", "shadow zone" and "surface waves".

Absent Wednesday? We started the Plate Boundaries Data Lab by identifying the locations of  15 or more earthquakes on the map (white paper) using the data table provided (green paper).  Students going on the King Tut field trip (Tuesday 12/8) will need to finish the rest of the lab (steps 2, 3, and 4 of the Procedure) on their own at home.

R 12.03- Answer TB p. 258 # 2, 3, 6 in SciNB p. 60, and TB p. 258 # 4, 5, 8 in SciNB p. 61 (FCS, RSQ)

Absent Thursday?  There was a short surprise quiz on the reading from last night, the questions asked to define one of the additional vocaublary words, list the 3 types of seismic waves, and to identify the seismic wave that travels the fastst.  We added the bibliography onto our timeline (timelines collected) and then started filling in p. 60/61 in SciNB.

F 12.04- Finish SciNB p. 57, 58, 60, 61 (we will be working on these during the week;IF time is used wisely in class, they will be finished before you go home on Friday.  If there is a lot of side talking or students chose to be distracted, the work will need to be completed at home.)

Absent Friday?  Today we used spring and/or slinky's to models how the primary and secondary wave travels through the Earth, demonstrated why locations closest to the epicenter will feel the seismic waves before locations further away. We also wrote some informaion about the seismic waves on p. 60 of SciNB.

Announcement: Final exams will be here before you know it! (They are on December 15-17)  The test will cover everything we have learned about this semester.  Get started studying by reviewing chapters 5 and 6 looking over old tests (your WIGWAYs will tell you which questions you really need to focus on!)

What does Mrs. Fischer mean by EVERYTHING being on the final?

1 - Mapping Earth's Surface (all)
2 - Earth's Surface (lessons 1 and 3)
