One Question

Posted on: September 26, 2009

question-mark3aTheir homework assignment was called “One Question.”  Their job was to write one science question that they wanted to have answered, any area of science is fine.  If they were goofy or tried to be funny they wouldn’t get credit.

What I got back blew my mind.  There were such incredible questions that I’m going to assign this about once a month.  I’m going to talk about some of these during science news days on Fridays.  Some of them I will save for when we get to the topic.  Some I will post as a list questions they can research and present for extra credit.

Extra credit is a sore point for some of you.  My rule on extra credit is this: if you are missing more than two assignments that quarter, extra credit is not available to you.  Extra credit is not an out for the lazy, it’s a boost for those who work hard and need a couple more points.

[I left the papers at school, I’ll post some of the questions next week.  My own blog is blocked on school computers.]

What’s New in 2013/2014?

Every year brings a change, this one is no exception.

I will be picking up the sophomore honors Algebra II class to keep them separate from the juniors. This should help accelerate them and put them on a stronger track towards Calculus. Looks like there will be only one section each of Physics and Calculus, but still two of Robotics & Engineering.

Hot topics this year are going to be the Common-Core Standards, Standards-Based Grading (SBG), improving AP Calculus scores, and somehow adding Python, maybe as a club.

Just a quick poll to help me understand who is stopping by my blog.

Yeah sure, lots from America, but look who else is here…

If you are badly in need of more email or for some reason jonesing for a physics fix, enter your email address so I can bother you with my newest rant on science.
