825 and 828,

I was mostly displeased with the quality of your mineral mining essays, in particular how little attention was given to the task assignment and all the information I wanted included. Many of you opted to not include specific information. That costed you. Also, many of you ignored the rubric!

Please note the following for your next quarters essay:

  1. You must have sources (e.g. at least 8 for full credit)
  2. You must have subheadings (i.e. titles for your essays sections) otherwise it is an automatic 1 out of 4.
  3. You must include in-text graphics
  4. You must not include your opinion

Most importantly, if you did not hand in an essay, or it says you are missing it, it means it was not in the pile I collected from the class. Please be sure to hand in a copy to me right away.

- Mr. Paccione

822,

Here is the link to your homework for tonight. It’s only 10 questions.

Earth science,

I do realize that I posted the video very late, but I will tell you that it does not exempt you from handing in the assignment on Monday.

If you did not get a chance to see the video tonight, it becomes homework over the weekend along with the packet of questions.

I will remind you that this is being graded as a quiz.

- Mr. Paccione

Earth science,

I do apologize for how late this is. Also, I needed to upload the video to youtube in order for you to view it.

It is still processing, but should be done doing that soon. Again, I do apologize for this being up so late. You’re all late birds anyway!

See you all on Monday.

- Mr. Paccione

626,

The following are the quiz topics for the quiz this Friday.

  1. 4 Phase Changes
  2. Phase Change Graph

I will be giving you a graph and will ask that you can identify a number of positions along that graph.

It will be similar to what you are doing on your test, so it will not require too much additional studying.

- Dan
