Chat Preparation Essay

Post your essay answer to the questions below to the Moodle Unit 11 Forum before chat. Log into the Moodle (if you are challenged, use your own Scholars Online userid and password), click on the Natural Science course link, and then on the forum link for this unit. Read any other forum postings.

In preparation for our discussion, revisit the Nuts and Bolts of Classification website. Assume that you must classify all of the objects in the picture in three groups (yes, that's arbitrary....do it anyway). Post your proposal for the key characteristics of each group, a name for each group, and the members of each group to the Moodle forum before class.


Mastery Exercise

Log into the Moodle (if you are challenged, use your own Scholars Online userid and password), click on the mastery exercise for the unit, and attempt the mastery exercise at least once before chat. Bring any questions you have to chat. Then return and attempt the exercise as many times as necessary to achieve an 85% or better score.


Lab Exercise

Lab Instructions: Field Lab #1.

Labs are within two weeks of the discussion section; the extra time should allow you to find equipment or materials. Post your lab results to the class Lab forum, in the appropriate thread.
