Note: homework is light this week because we will be conducting a 3-day long laboratory in class. There will be a test next week (Friday, November 14) on Minerals and Rocks.  I'd suggest using the extra time to study chapter 2 lesson 2.  The test will include how to use a balance, and it's parts, how to read/use a graduated cylinder and how to calculate density.

M 11.3- Read lab & come prepared (no baggy clothes, sleeves pulled back, long hair up)  Since we will be using Hydrochloric Acid in class and working with minerals that leave behind a powder, please avoid darker colors and/or fancy clothes.

T 11.4-  Neatly re-write lab notes in data table.

W 11.5- Neatly re-write lab notes in data table.

R 11.6- Finish all lab density calculations.

F 11.7- Start studying for Mineral & Rock Test (chapter 2, lesson 2) which will be on Friday, November 14. The test will include how to use a balance, and it's parts, how to read/use a graduated cylinder and how to calculate density.
