Is this an extra book or is this part of the four I need to read for Language Arts?    It’s one of the four.

How do I pick a book?    Select a book from  DSA media center’s science novel catalog list, or choose one of your own. The only requirement is that the book integrates an area of science we study:

scientific method, chemistry, disease/epidemiology, ecosystems (energy matter cycles, trophic levels, interdependence, energy sources), water (distribution, properties, stewardship), and evolution (geologic and biological change and the evidence for it).

HINT –> Read the questions on the AR Science Book Form to make sure you can do the assignment with the book you have chosen.

How do I get credit?      A) Read the book   B) Take the AR Test   C) Fill out the AR Science Book Form

a) Bozeman Science – the Quantum Mechanical Model: What is it? Okay, yeah, he includes Coulumb’s Law, which you don’t have to know, but he shows that this stuff is real – we aren’t just making up this electron configuration thing! Don’t freak out about the Quantum Numbers thing – more preview for chemistry. It won’t be on the test, but it helps explain things.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=accyCUzasa0

b) Bozeman Science – Quantum configurations.. Mr. Anderson does go into great detail about why this configuration makes sense by explaining the connection to ionization energy. If that part isn’t important to you, skip from about 2:00 to 6:00 – just watch the beginning and end.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AFPfg0Como

c) More Bozeman – all about the Octet Rule, Valence Electrons, and figuring out Oxidation Numbers. Bonus use of quantum configurations.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsvR4AZGRSk

d) All about the Octet Rule and Ionic vs. Covalent bonds. Extra bonus, he explains in easy words how you can use electronegativity differences to figure out which bond you have. (For me, you just need to know metal +nonmetal = ionic bond, nonmetal + nonmetal = covalent bond.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DjsD7Hcd9U    

e) All about how to write formulas for ionic Compounds

    • Layer correlation:tracing rock strata from one area to another by using the Principle of Lateral Continuity or by relating the fossils of the two areas using the Principle of Faunal Succession. :)

    • Just google “subscript definition science” and you get kinds of pages that want to help you.

      “sub” means under, “script” means writing. A subscript is the writing underneath; it’s the little 2 down there in H2O. (That 2 should be lower than the H and O but this website doesn’t let me type subscripts!) A subscript tell you how many atoms there are in the compound, as in, there are 2 atoms of H in H2O.

  1. Hi MS. LeMay I wanted know if I could come to you in the morning so I could get help on this study guide, because the youtube video is stoping and going and I don’t have time to wait for it because I still have stuff to do. So if you could reply soon that would be great, but I no you have a life to because I do too but I am trying to study but I am not understanding some of this stuff. So ounce again, may you please reply soon but I do understand if you don’t,
    Thank you so much,
    Lauren Holloway

  2. Hey Ms.Lemay.
    I was wondering if i could come first period to talk about some home work i didnt understand. I’m in ISS , but i can still come in the morning. Just let me know asap please.
    Thanks!

  3. Ms.Lemay whenever i try to download the word walls, they don’t look like words at all its weird and its sort of difficult trying to explain, well… it shows a bunch of hollow squares and random signs I’ve never seen before when i open it, any ideas of what it may be??

    • Hi Kevin,
      That sounds like a word processing program issue – what I have on my computer may not match what you have on yours. Just let me know which weeks’ word wall you need and I can just cut and paste them directly in an email to you.

      Hope you are enjoying the snow days!
      Ms. L.

    • Hi Mya,

      A “sink” is something that absorbs and hold a lot of something. In this case, a carbon sink is something that absorbs and hold a lot of carbon,like the ocean.

      Ms. L. :)
