The chemistry students had some practice questions about the Periodic Table using the ActiVotes. They also received their graded exam and we went over it in detail. They have a homework assignment tonight! Measure the circumference of a basketball. Calculate the radius. Assume the radius of an atom is 100,000 times greater than the radius of the nucleus. If the nucleus of an atom was the size of a basketball and that nucleus was at West Valley High School, draw a circle on a map of the Cottonwood showing how big that "basketball atom" is.
The AP Biology students got their exam back. Some students were happy and some weren't. If I was a kid who thought they did better than their exam grades showed, this is what I would do:
1. Talk to Mr. Button if I didn't understand a question or why a particular answer was given a perfect score and others weren't.
2. Talk to students who were successful on the test and ask what they did to prepare for the exam
3. I would make sure I knew the perfect answers to all the practice questions that Mr. Button always has available.
4. I would read all the chapters that will be covered on the exam. And I mean read.
5. I would go online and look at all those activities on the text website and do them.
6. I would read all the lab material very carefully and I would not rely on others when actually doing the lab.
That's a start.
We also started the new lab on Mitosis and Meiosis.
