It may be a short week but we are packing a lot in! We will be continuing our discussions around possible outcomes and theoretical probability but this time to those experiments involving multiple events. Students will be completing the first part of their Quarter Carnival project as well as writing a SWYK on Thursday. Here are some online resources that complement the learning from class:

In science, we have moved to our final topic: Methods of Heat Transfer (conduction, radiation and convection). Students should be familiar with these terms from previous grades and may be able to connect their learning to past science units in energy and electricity. This week, our focus will be on conduction. On Tuesday we will be looking more closely into one certain materials conduct heat (and electricity) better than others and on Wednesday, students will be completing their final lab. The conduction lab will be due the following week. For more information on this topic, students are encouraged to review the following resources at home:

  • Hi Mr Fisher,

    Is the theoretical analysis of Carnival games due as homework tomorrow or is it something that will be done in class?

    There doesn’t seem to be any active link to it and no paper form came back home.

    Thanks

    • Students had some time Friday to complete this task. I am hoping that they can have it done for Monday. It is nothing crazy… no formal handout… students just need to provide that the theoretical probability of winning their carnival game is between 20-30%. This basically involves them listing all of the possible outcomes (hopefully using an organizer) and then calculating the theoretical probability. My classroom will be open Monday at lunch for those students who want to touch base on this portion of the project. I have posted the weekly post, it includes a link to the project. Hope this helps.
