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.

Students should be able to calculate gross earnings (regular pay, overtime, commission, danger pay, tips, etc.). After knowing gross pay, students should be able to calculate net pay (the amount that gets taken home).

Notes are all available online. Today's review of net pay is attached. Students took home an assignment to be completed for tonight. This is also attched along with the tables that will be needed to complete the questions. This will give them a good idea of what they need to work on or get help with in class tomorrow. Remember lunch time help is available upon request!
