Task for LA – Friday

Happy Friday! There are two writing tasks for our middle block.

1) Choose the three sources of power you think are most valuable. Explain your choices in your blog. Please comment on two other student blogs.

2) Email to parents – This will be the first of our weekly email to mom and dad. Your email must be CC’ed to brian.aspinall@lkdsb.com. The body of your email must include:

  • A weekly summary
  • What you have learned
  • A time you tried something new
  • 8D Science Coding the Particle Theory

    You task is to develop an app with the following requirements:

    1) Pressing “S” on the keyboard will make particle “sprites” behave like they are in the solid state.

    2) Pressing “L” on the keyboard will represent the addition of some heat causing particles to speed up and spread apart.

    3) Pressing “G” on the keyboard will represent more heat, causing particles to become gases.

    Here is a demonstration. Good luck!

    Tasks for Today – Monday December 1

    Middle Block: Math

    Chapter Self Test and Chapter Review – Please complete in small groups. Be certain you understand algebraic equations.



    Last Block Science:

    The first section of Pure Substances and Mixtures is a look at matter and the particle theory. Review “matter” by watching this short clip below:

    Discuss the particle theory with a neighbour and have a look at the Scratch app I coded below:

    Without viewing the source, begin to make your own particle theory app using Scratch. Good luck!

    Cool Kids

    “I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
    ‘Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
    ‘Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it.
    I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids.”

    Following up on our last blog reflection about “being normal” – who are the cool kids? Please, no names, but stop and think about the lyrics to this song – as well as the video.

    Your task:

    Who are the cool kids? Write a blog reflection to this video? How do you feel? What is “cool” ?

    LA Task Nov 26 Period 8

    Billy weighs twice as much as Jasmine. Where should they place the fulcrum if they want to balance out the teeter-totter? Write an equation that models the situation from the previous question. Explain how your equation models it correctly.

    Rewrite the equation that models a balanced teeter-totter to demonstrate equal ratios of the length of the arms and the weights. Explain the steps you took.

    Blogging Homework

    Hello folks,

    We have been blogging for close to six weeks now. Most of you have a good weekly post, some more and some less. It is time for us to leave each other feedback.

    For homework, your task is to comment on two different blogs. Your comments should be questions you might have for the blog writer. Please try to comment on someone you don’t always interact with. Remember that comments must be appropriate and not negative in nature.

    I look forward to reading everyone’s thoughts!

    (PS: Some of you have not yet posted the “normal” blog from this morning yet).
