We are currently exploring Earth and the Universe. We begin by discovering why objects in the solar system are different from each other as we learn about gravity, solar system formation, moon phases and eclipses, and finally star systems and galaxies.
Below you will find the homework assignments for the week. If you click on the red links, you can access the documents handed out in class. This will come in handy should you leave a document at school. Remember, homework is due in class the following day unless otherwise noted. If you do not completely understand an assignment, simply do your best on it and come to class with your questions. Don’t leave it blank. Some assignments are graded based on accuracy or a grading rubric. Students are notified in advance if an assignment is graded in such a way.
Focus for Week of 9/25: What determines gravity? What keeps objects in orbit?
