626,

Attached is a link to the homework that is due tomorrow.

8. Observation vs. Inference

There is a feature on Jupitergrades that allows you to hand/upload the homework electronically. If you know how to upload it to Jupitergrades, or want to figure out on your own how to upload it, feel free to attempt that this time around. I would like to get to the point in this class where we never have to print out anything and just upload it electronically.

Try that out tonight, or even ask your parents to help you. I imagine it is not a difficult process.

825 and 828,

Here is a link to the 1st quarter project sheet in case you misplaced the one I gave you.

Informative Essay- Branches of Earth Science

- Mr. Paccione

626,

Here is a link to the first quarter project. If you did not get a copy of this project, please use one of the links to print off a copy and bring it in tomorrow.

Informative Essay- Influential Scientists of the Past and Present

If the above link doesn’t work, use this one below:

822, 825, and 828-

Here is the homework due tomorrow.

12. Mountains and Hilltops

Let’s experiment with Jupiter. If you know how to upload it Jupitergrades via DropBox, please do so. If you do not know how to upload it, please print it out and hand it in tomorrow.

822, 825, and 828,

Here is the homework due tomorrow.

10. Variations of Contour Lines

- Mr. Paccione

626,

Copy the following 8 conversion questions into your notebook and answer them. This will not be collected tomorrow, but I will be checking to make sure you completed it.

If you are still unsure about how to convert units, we will do more of this tomorrow to clear up anything you are still unsure about.

Things to remember: The order of prefixes is– KILO, HECTO, DEKA, Base Unit, DECI, CENTI, MILLI. When you can’t see a decimal place in a number, it is always located at the end of the number. Count the number of jumps, and move in the direction that you jumped in.

1. 20.2 mL = ___________ L

3. 102.7 kg = ___________ g

4. 9.19 L = ___________ kL

5. 5000 m = __________ km

6. 45.22 km = __________ m

7. 10.01 cm = ___________ mm

8. 1150 km = ___________ mm

Study hard!
