Last week the science 30s completed their first of 4 unit tests. Overall, this test went quite well. If students wish to rewrite the test, they must complete test corrections and all workbook questions to prove that they are well prepared for the rewrite exam. This test will occur Wednesday March 15 after school. Rewrite eligibility is dependant on if students have handed in all labs and projects on time (no lates = rewrite!) To finish up the unit, the science 30s have their genetic technology project due Monday March 13!
On Thursday, we started chemistry in science 30, and the looks of enjoyment were few and far between. It should be noted that for many students this is the first time they have encountered anything chemistry related since science 10 (which could be over 2 years ago!). THIS is where coming in for extra help during FLT will allow students to feel more comfortable with the work. As well, completing all practice problems will re-enforce the neural pathways that they will quickly be developing through this unit!
