We have been looking at counting significant digits and proper rounding rules so the students will know how to express their final answer. We have also started to look at proper SI units and how to convert units. Most students have a good grasp on this already as it was a major component of GMF10 Math.

NRF10- This week we practiced factoring simple trinomials and got introduced to factoring hard trinomials. Student are reminded to always look for a GCF first, factor it out, and then look for a simple or hard trinomial to factor. Lesson attached.

Sci 10- This week we started the physics unit and practiced rounding final answers to the appropriate number of significant digits or decimal places. Students are responsible for knowing the rules for significant digits and rounding.

NRF- lessons attached. Short quiz tomorrow. Students should be after to factor out the GCF from a polynomial, expand (by multiplying polynomials), and simplify (by collecting like terms) polynomials.

Sci- some notes/review attached. Final Chemistry test is tomorrow. Students should review their notes and the 4 quizzes that they have done. Have an understanding of matter, ionic compounds, molecular coumpounds, naming and writing out chemical formulas of compounds, balancing and idenifying types of reactions. Notes from throughout the unit have been posted along the way if days were missed.

Fin& Work 110- Quick notes on slope have been uploaded.

Sci- reviewed polyatomic ions and compounds involving polyatomic ions. Started to look at transition metals which are multivalent.

NRF- reviewed laws of exponents and discussed negative exponents (how to make them positive). Questions from last slide of the attached lesson were assigned as homework.

Science- lesson is attached. The topics for the quiz tomorrow are in the slides as well as what we covered today. Today we talked about polyatomic ions and compounds containing polyatomic ions. The worksheet that students worked on in class is not for homework as they should study for their quiz. The material covered today will not be on the quiz.

NRF- Students wrote a quiz on radicals today. Anyone who did not write today will have to write tomorrow in class.

NRF had a homework sheet- practice some from each type of problems making sure you know how to switch mixed to entire and entire to mixed. Make sure you can do this with square roots, cube roots, and fourth roots.

Sci had a homework sheet- make sure you know how to find the formula for the ionic compound. Ex. Sodium chloride would be NaCl, Aluminum oxide would be Al2O3.

Sci 10- Students should be able to name properties of metals vs. nonmetals, know the difference between atoms and ions, be able to find a symbol on the periodic table, and determine how many protons and electrons it would have as an atom vs. as an ion (with a charge). Students should complete the first 10 rows of ions on their homework sheet (See attached lesson)

NRF10- Students should be able to list which number systems a variety of numbers would belong to and be able to list numbers (written in a variety of forms including as radicals) from least to greatest. Lesson and homework is attached.
