* Important class notes - 

  • 1) Want some extra credit?   Please help Nick Piotrowski with his science fair project.   Why would I offer extra credit for this?   It is because he has developed a tool to help you concentrate better.   If it works well, we will use it all throughout Quest to help students do better.   
     

    Hello,

    I am conducting an experiment that aims to improve the concentration and attention span of the subject. So far, I have already seen success, but I need a second phase to confirm my results. 
    If you were to join the team, this is what would be expected of you.

    First day:

    Take a simple memory test, report back the results.

    Every day after the first day:

    Find a room(preferably where you are alone), and sit in a comfortable position. The session will last 15 minutes and you shouldn't be moving at all in that time period so make sure you are able to stay still. You will begin concentrating on a singular thought, or, on absolutely nothing at all(this option is easier for some). As soon as any internal dialogue, images, thoughts, memories, or any kind of brain activity happens, you must stop the session, regroup, and then begin concentrating again. This should be repeated for the length of the 15 minutes.

    Last day:

    Take the memory test again, and report back your results.

    I really need subjects, so if you could help I would be very appreciative.

    Thanks,

    Nick

Spend time studying for the lab safety exam which you will now complete at home.  In order to continue in this class, you must pass this exam with 85%.   If you do not, you will be given one more chance to pass.    This is an easy test if you study.    The first part was what you observed out on the patio today with the lab drama demonstration.   Here is what to study:

a) Study lab safety contract

b) Be able to handle a first aide situation.

 - Print and complete without any help of any kind - Laboratory First Aide Test

 - Quia.com -  Do the Safety Contract Test (timed and 1 attempt only)

-  The importance of observations ( incorrect link from last week so this is what you transfer your observations on ant turn in this week. 

-  Chemistry Equipment lab student version - print and put the lab work on it from this week and turn it in next week.

- Converting between metric units student versions
