Earth Science Students,

Please take the time tonight to understand and copy the following lesson into your notebook.

It does not contain concepts, only facts. No fun video in this lesson… sorry.

Earth Science Students,

Here is the test wizard homework information. I will always post this so you can plan your time accordingly. 

Note: You may not be able to do one or two of these questions because we have let to learn the final lesson on station models. There is no time limit on this assignment, so feel free to do as much as you can, wait until Monday’s lesson, and then finish the rest before the Wednesday due date.

Class 824 & 825: Ch. 7 Review Questions- 45 Questions- No Time Limit

Remember, until I see (almost) everyone doing these assignments consistently, I will be posting these every day.

Earth Science Students,

There was an issue with Test Wizard.

It is now resolved. Your assignment is there.

Earth Science Students,

Here is the test wizard homework information. I will always post this so you can plan your time accordingly. 

Class 824 & 825: L11- Air Fronts- 25 Questions- 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Remember, until I see everyone doing these assignments I will be posting these every day.

Earth Science Students,

Here is the test wizard homework information. I will always post this so you can plan your time

Class 824: L9- Hurricanes and Ocean Currents- 16 Questions- 1 Hour

Class 825: L10- Air Masses- 25 Questions- 1.5 Hour

If you score between a 55-65% on this, it will only count as a ‘check’, or an 80% as a homework grade on your average since you have access to your notes and other resources while taking this.

If you score below a 55%, it will count as a ‘check minus’, or an 65% as a homework grade on your average since you have access to your notes and other resources while taking this.

This is open to change, but this is how it will be for right now.

Earth Science Students,

Please take the time tonight to understand and copy the following lesson into your notebook.

It does not contain concepts, only facts. There is also a crazy video of baseball-sized hail destroying a car. It’s exciting stuff.

Earth Science Students,

All of you should have gotten your username and password for Test Wizard today. Class 825, you should have gotten it from Ms. Ardito.

If you did not get a username and ID, please email me and I will email it to you as soon as I can.

Here are the steps to sign into your account. It’s very easy.

  1. Go to: http://www.testwizard.com
  2. Find and click on “Login”
  3. Enter your username and password
  4. You have already been enrolled in Earth Science… no need to enter the code for the class
  5. Find the assignment and begin.

I will likely be posting these assignments on the regular so you can have lots of practice before exams. When I post these assignments, I will always tell you:

  1. how many questions it features and…
  2. how much time you will be given so you can plan your time according.

As we mentioned in class, once you begin an assignment, you have to persist through it as you have a limited amount of time.

Earth Science Students,

Please complete the following questions in the 12 review packets below. Write out the entire answers, not just the letters, to receive full credit.

I have not made a habit of checking this homework. Expect this to be checked. It’s worth 2 homework grades.

  2. Packet 2- 2-star-life-cycle-and-star-classification-questions (Questions 28, 29, 38)

Earth Science Students,

Make sure you have your chapter 6 guided notes with you tomorrow. If you don’t have them, you’re going to be really upset with yourself.

That is all.

– Mr. Paccione

Earth Science Students,

Please complete the following questions in the two review packets below. Write out the entire answers, not just the letters, to receive full credit.

I do not recommend printing out these packets… the “everything on insolation” packet is both enormous and it overlaps too much with topics covered in chapter 4 (which you will not be tested on).

  1. 4-greenhouse-effect-questions (questions 1-10)
  2. 4-greenhouse-effect-answers
  3. everything-on-insolation-questions (questions 21 – 25, 33, 41, 42, 46, 48, 49)
  4. everything-on-insolation-answers

When you’re done with these questions, please fill out the poll below with which question(s) you want to go over in class during out half period review.
