00.02 About Me and Course Guidelines (AR1)

teacher-scored 15 points possible 20 minutes

Assignment One: Assignment One is the "About Me & Parent Form" assignment. YOU WILL PASTE your paragraph and questions A - C below into the Submission Box under "About Me & Parent Form" and also you will upload the form in this same assignment box. You also paste Assignment Two in this first box. On this main page you will see a capital BLUE A with A + in the far left margin and that is the indicator throughout the course that it is an ASSIGNMENT when you see the A+. You may have to send the paragraph and answers and then send the form separately, but still within that About Me Submission Box.

Write a paragraph (at least five sentences) about yourself. Also in About Me, do the following:

A. give your parent/guardian's name and email address and phone
B. give your school counselor's name and email and phone
C. state if there is anyone else who oversees or helps you with your work - if there is, include their name, email and phone number.

FOR ALL OF YOUR ASSIGNMENTS in this course, type all of your answers into your word processing document (use a cheap program like TextEdit or Notes - "Word" does not format and I would have to ask you to redo it.) Then copy all of the data asked for in the Submission Box (this is ALL of your answers that you just put in the word processing program) and paste it into the Assignment Submission Box. Your word processing document, that you'll keep on your computer or a flash drive will be your copy of the entire course. This is for safe keeping and everything from About Me to the very end will be on that document.

There is NOT a Submission Box for every single assignment or unit, in fact, there may be several units in one Submission Box. Just keep putting your answers in your word processing document as you go along. Keep clicking on the arrow on the bottom right that says "Next." Then you will come to a Submission Box and it will say to paste certain assignments within that box. BUT, do no skip even one or else the whole thing will be rejected. Do put All that is requested in this box and only paste all of the work one time.

Parent Permission Form - Required by the State of Utah (If you submit this for first quarter, you don't have to submit it again in second quarter.)
To get your top 50 points you must include the Parent Permission Form with Assignment One. You submit that in this area right after you do the About Me paragraph and A-C and Assignment Two. (Don't upload these. The only thing you upload is the signed Parent Form. :)

Print out the Parent Permission Form--it is shown as an attached document in orange print at the bottom of the very first "Overview" page. Have your parent/guardian sign it. It is best to take a photo of it or scan the document and upload it asap. Be sure you scan the parent signature. You cannot get credit for this course if you have not sent this form. If you are over 18, don't send the form, just write, "I'm 18" in the assignment box. :)

Upload the Parent Permission Form. If you look down, a little lower to the right you should see blue letters that say Upload or Re-upload data. Click on that and you should be able to upload the form. (25 points)

Assignment Two:

A. Review the Adult Roles and Responsibilities Standards document, and then, in the assignment answer box write a paragraph about what topics in the course that you think you will enjoy the most. :)

Assignment Three:

Pre-Course Guidelines You will paste the Pre-Course Guidelines in the Submission Box with the same title. Rewrite them as is asked and don't send the questions, as 21 says.

If you are in Quarter Two, please review these Course Guidelines again, so they are fresh for you. If you recall, it is important to me that you follow the directions exactly. This is a good habit for you to develop - it will prepare you for college and a future job. :) However, if you have already done them in quarter one, you can just write a sentence saying, "I did these in quarter one."

Rewrite the answers to the questions below. Rewrite them using your own words.

I am giving you the answers to this section. I want you to rewrite the answers in your own words, do not copy and paste them. This information is all vital to your success. I grade heavily on following directions so always follow the course guidelines exactly. Memorize these.

1. Can you start the Teen Living course if you have not read all of the Information and Start Here sections?

Answer: No, I must read those sections first before starting the course.

2. If you have a special deadline, what are you required to do?

Answer: I must let the teacher know at least two weeks prior to the date of the final deadline.

3. Can you send individual exercises, meaning sending Exercise 1 and then Exercise 2 at another time and so on?

Answer: No, I am not to put anything in the assignment boxes until the unit is 100% completed in the word processing program. I should not send messages in the assignment box, they are to go in the “Messages” area or to be sent in an email message. No assignments are to ever be sent in email, only messages.

4. Can you send the exercises in any order you choose?

Answer: No, I must send all answers in consequential order and if there is something missing, I should state that. I must always check the Lesson material at the top of the unit. All data that will be on the final is in this Lesson Content area, so you must read it all. Before saying something is missing check above and below in the curriculum. Then, if you can't find it or if you can't get a document to open, STOP and notify the teacher by email or in the Message area. Do not leave anything blank.

5. Can you skip an exercise?

Answer: No, I cannot skip any exercises and I cannot say “I don’t know.”

6. How long do you normally need to wait for the teacher to correct your work?

Answer: The teacher is encouraged to have all work corrected within three days.

7. Can you give the teacher "phony" deadlines? How might the teacher feel if s/he finds out you made up a deadline?

Answer: I would lose trust with my teacher because it’s really a lie.

8. If you sign up to take the course in the late spring, when should you start sending work? Why?

Answer: I must send work immediately because I cannot expect the teacher to grade one whole quarter in a couple of days.

9. Can you work from an old printed copy of the curriculum? Why?

Answer: No, because the teacher might think that I am cheating. I must only use current curriculum.

10. If you have a problem with the teacher, why is it best to talk to the teacher first before complaining elsewhere?

Answer: I must learn that this is the proper procedure in the work world and elsewhere. It complicates things and typically makes the teacher OR immediate supervisor (if you do this on your job) feel badly because you did not follow the proper communication procedures. I've seen many people be fired for not communicating with the proper person. In this case, your teacher is the proper person to complain to or to tell of your problem. If it is a system issue, then I will forward your problem on to the EHS administration.

11. Can you be automatically dropped from Teen Living? If so, why would that happen?

Answer: Yes, I can be automatically dropped if I don’t send work regularly. I must send work within a two-week period of time.

12. If you intend to finish this course in less than one month, what is required?

Answer: Especially if it is in the spring, just prior to graduation, I must let the teacher know. If many students wait until the very last minute, it may be impossible for my teacher to correct a quarter’s worth of work in a few days for a lot of people.

13. Can I send my work through email?

Answer: No, I can never send assignments through email.

14. What are important formatting guidelines?

Answer: Use normal font, always use black, normal size (12), no bold or underline (except for Exercise #1, etc.). Also, no centering or right alignment because when the teacher answers, I may not see the answer. Also, I must always leave a line space prior to each ASSIGNMENT label that is in caps and bold. If my personal computer won't do bold, then just caps is sufficient for the EXERCISE labels.

15. Why is it important that you work from a Word Processing program?

Answer: Because then I have a copy of all of my work if something happens and I can also finish a unit over several days, but it will be in one place for me to copy and paste into the Assignment box when it is 100% complete.

16. Does the teacher like it if I ask questions?

Answer: Yes, the instructor sincerely wants to help me. If I don’t understand something, I should copy the question and paste it into a message for my instructor and then tell her which parts I don’t understand. I must ALWAYS state my name as it appears in the EHS record, and give the course name and state which quarter it is.

17. Should students wait to start the course until after the permission form is entered?

Answer: No, I should not wait to start the course until after the permission form is entered. I should start immediately. But, I must not forget - the form is required by law.

18. After the final, am I immediately finished?

Answer: No, I must be sure to check with my counselor within two weeks at the end of the course. I must SEE my credit on my transcript before I stop checking. This is very important.

19. Can students request that their grade be changed if they don’t like the final grade, and can students retake the final exam?

Answer: No, once you take the final, your grade cannot be changed if you don’t feel it is high enough. No, there are no retakes on the final.

20. Can students get an A for the course if they do not get an A on the final exam?

Answer: No. Students MUST get an A on the final exam or they cannot get an A for a final course grade. Study very HARD for the final. The finals are quite different in each class and some are a lot harder than others - you must be prepared by studying VERY hard for each one. Each final is worth 50% of your grade, so don't think the final will be easy. Study the entire course for the final, and there are no notes or helps allowed.

21. Do you send the teacher all of the questions and curriculum?

Answer: No, I only send answers, no questions or curriculum. The teacher wants to see answers only, and my work will not be accepted if I forget.

00.03 Parent Perm. (AR1)

teacher-scored 100 points possible 30 minutes

Assignment Three: Print out the Parent Permission Form--it is shown as an attached document in blue print with a 3 in front of it. Have your parent/guardian sign it. It is best to TAKE A PHOTO of it or SCAN the document and upload it asap. Be sure you scan the parent signature. You cannot get credit for this course if you have not sent this form. If you are over 18, don't send the form, just write, "I'm 18" in the assignment box.

This is required by law, so please send it ASAP. Thank you. Print it out, have your parents SIGN IT. They should check all the tiny boxes at the top of page 2 because we will be covering all of those topics. Certainly you know someone who has a camera on a smart phone who can snap a photo and then send it off to me. Or, you can find scanners in libraries or at the school--you might ask a technology teacher if you can't find a librarian to help you in a library. Be sure to take the photo of the signature page, upload it to your desktop and upload it in the assignment area. Or, send it as an attachment using the teacher's email address under the teacher contact information.

NOTE: By Utah State law, parental or guardian consent is required for a student to participate in human sexuality instruction. State policy states that instruction includes the importance of marriage and the family, abstinence from sexual activity before marriage, and fidelity after marriage. Consult the local school district on its policy regarding the teaching of human sexuality and district approved instructional materials.

REMEMBER TO PUT ALL OF YOUR ANSWERS IN A WORD PROCESSING PROGRAM (NOT Word). DO NOT SUBMIT THEM INTO THE SUBMISSION BOX until you come to a Submission Box and it tells you to paste certain work into it. Paste ALL of the work requested in that box only ONE time. The first box may not be until the end of Unit 2. Just click on the box that is on the lower right, that has an arrow and it says "Next," until you come to the Submission Box.

01.01.03 All about the Earth(Geo4Life1)

teacher-scored 100 points possible 90 minutes

Our World The earth is a rocky body moving around the sun on a path called an orbit. Each journey around the sun is called a revolution which lasts one year. As the earth moves around the sun, it turns on its axis. It makes one complete turn in slightly more than 24 hours. This causes light and darkness or day and night. The earth is a spherical shape but is not perfectly round. The diameter at the equator is slightly longer than the Prime Meridian from pole to pole. I bet you didn't know that! No one has ever traveled below the earth's crust. Scientists have found other ways to gather information about our planet. They do this through the study of seismic waves, or vibrations that are caused by earthquakes. During this lesson, you are going to learn about the earth, how landforms are created, why we have earthquakes, the reason oceans are salty and many more facts that scientists have discovered through research and experiments. Use the link located at the end of the assignment to answer the questions. Copy the questions below between the rows of asterisks and submit them along with your answers. Please use a different font color when you type the answers. Many students use black for the questions and red for the answers. Also, if you can't figure out how to to include drawings, you can just describe the plate movement or drawing in words and still receive credit.  Directions:

Landforms Lower Antelope Canyon, Arizona: Image from Wikimedia Commons, Meckimac image, Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 UnportedLower Antelope Canyon, Arizona: Image from Wikimedia Commons, Meckimac image, Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported A landform is a feature on the earth's surface. Mountains, rivers, valleys, and canyons are all types of landforms. Landforms are shaped by nature. Erosion, tectonic movement and weathering are all factors in shaping the earth. Plate movement pushes the land upward forming mountains. Weathering and erosion wear down the earth cutting into mountains and plateaus. Weathering can break down the earth into small sediments.

01.03 Identifying the reasons for the establishment of colonies in America Reading Log

teacher-scored 25 points possible 40 minutes

You'll use Lessons 01.02 and 01.03 to complete this assignment. As long as you follow the directions you'll do fine.

Directions The ID Terms are similar to definitions EXCEPT they add the element of WHY? What I mean is this; after you have defined the word or told me who the person is you then need to tell me WHY they are important to this point in history. This means that you should have 2 short sentences for each of the ID Terms. You will not get half points for this part of the assignment. If you don't have BOTH sentences you won't get credit. The other thing is; you MUST avoid broad generalizations like; "if they didn't do what they did the world would be different." So what you'll need to do think for a minute. Definitions are what I call basic regurgitation, you read something and then spit it back out in written form. By adding the WHY element I am hopefully training you to analyze what you've read a little bit. By asking yourself, "Why is this person or thing important or significant?" You are making a connection in your brain and analyzing, which is a higher brain function than regurgitation. The Short Answer questions just need to be answered. Each one is a little bit different, some may only require a 1 sentence answer while others may need to be 3 or 5 sentences. You will receive credit on these as long as they are answered correctly, which demonstrates your understanding of the concept addressed in the question. Please copy from the * to the * and paste the questions into a word document. When answering the questions, please be sure to bold your answer.

Sentence Workshop - Punctuation review

Make sure you have viewed the three Punctuation Explained videos (links above) and read the lesson before you start on this assignment.

Copy and paste the section between the lines of asterisks into a word-processing document on your computer. You may want to print out a copy to take to your workout. Complete your work, and save a copy for yourself. Then submit your work using the assignment submission window (in Topic 3 of your main class page) for this assignment.

**********************************************************************

Writing sentences

Proper use of punctuation in your writing helps readers understand what you mean. Follow the instructions in each part to write your sentences. You may need to review lesson 01.02 (Techniques for good writing).

  1. Use commas to separate items in a series of three or more (where you might have put an "and" or "or"):

    Examples: I went to the store for butter, eggs, and milk.
    Throwing hay to the horses, breaking the ice on the water trough, and shoveling snow off the steps were all part of her morning chores.

    Write one sentence using commas to separate single-word items in a series (like the first example). NOTICE that you should NOT use a comma before the first item. Be specific in naming items.
    a.
    Write two sentences using commas to separate the three phrases of a 'magic three' (like the second example)
    b.
    c.

  2. Use commas to separate the independent clauses (an independent clause is a clause with its own subject and predicate, that could stand as a sentence by itself) joined by a coordinating conjunction (and, or, but, so etc) in a compound sentence:

    Examples: I wanted to stay home, but I had to take a test.
    Jessica was as nervous as a mouse being watched by a cat, so she didn't say anything.

    NOTE: The comma goes BEFORE the conjunction (connecting word), not after.
    Write three compound sentences using a comma to separate independent clauses. Use figurative language in one of your sentences.
    d.
    e.
    f.

  3. Use commas to separate introductory phrases or clauses from the main (independent) clause:

    Examples: Angry with her little brother, she said nothing.
    Before she learned to play the flute, she didn't know how to read music.

    Write three sentences using a comma to separate an introductory phrase or clause from the main clause.
    g.
    h.
    i.

  4. Use commas to separate parenthetical or unnecessary clauses or phrases--that is, phrases or clauses that supply extra information but could be left out:

    Examples: The drum set, which he had gotten for Christmas the previous year, was well-worn but functional.
    Bernard, WHACKING away at the walnut with a hammer, finally CRUSHED it.
    NOTICE: Phrases that begin with "that" are not set off by commas. Use "which" instead for parenthetical phrases.

    This category could also include appositives (phrases that re-name the preceding noun or pronoun): I, the oldest child, was in charge.
    George, my sister's weird boyfriend, POUNDED on the back door.
    Write three sentences in which you use commas to set off appositive, parenthetical, or unnecessary clauses or phrases. Use (and put in ALL CAPS) vivid verbs/verbals in one of the sentences.
    j.
    k.
    l.

  5. Use commas to separate dialogue (the exact words someone says) from explanatory tags:

    Examples: "We are on our way home," she explained.
    "All right," he said, "but don't let me see you again tonight."

    Write two sentences which use commas to set off dialogue. Look carefully at the examples to see which commas go inside or outside of the quotation marks.
    m.
    n.

  6. Use commas to separate adjectives modifying the same noun, if the order of the adjectives doesn't matter:

    Examples: The cold, tired, hungry boys continued hiking through the rain.
    We bought the broken-down, rusty truck at an auction.
    She liked the little, bouncy, fluffy dog. (You could change the order to "the fluffy, bouncy, little dog.)
    But NOT if the order does matter: It was the last dress rehearsal. (You can't change the order to "the dress last rehearsal".)
    The old movie projector no longer worked. (You can't change the order to "movie old projector".)

    Write two sentences using commas to separate adjectives modifying the same noun, where the order of the adjectives doesn't matter.
    (Don't put a comma between the last adjective and the noun.)
    o.
    p.

  7. Use a colon before a list:

    Examples: Her favorite dogs were all hunting breeds: Gordon setter, English pointer, or wire-haired pointing griffon.
    She enjoyed the chance to buy girlie presents: a Barbie doll, a ballerina costume, a pink t-shirt, and a charm bracelet.

    Write two sentences that correctly use a colon before a list. Use specific details to create a focused effect.
    q.
    r.

  8. Use a colon before a word, phrase or clause that renames or emphasizes the previous one:

    Examples: We have a favorite one-word description of my father's personality: tenacious.
    His teacher invited him to participate in the All-State Band: an opportunity to work with some of the top band members and teachers in the state.

    Write two sentences that correctly use a colon before a word, phrase or clause that renames or emphasizes the previous one.
    s.
    t.

  9. Use a semicolon between two closely related sentences to imply a cause-effect relationship:

    Examples: I flunked my math test; I'm grounded till I pass or turn eighteen, whichever comes first.
    My little brother loves all animals; he won't even let me swat a fly.

    Write two sentences that each use a semicolon between two closely related sentences to imply a cause-effect relationship.
    u.
    v.

  10. Use a semicolon between two independent clauses joined by a conjunctive adverb (like therefore, moreover, meanwhile, however), before the conjunctive adverb:

    Examples: Mason was good-looking enough to be a professional model; however, he loved his job in medical research.
    The stable manager liked Isabella; moreover, Isabella was willing to work several hours a week cleaning stalls if it meant she got to ride.

    Write two sentences that each use a semicolon between two independent clauses joined by a conjunctive adverb. Remember the comma after the conjunctive adverb.
    w.
    x.

Once you have viewed/listened to the URLs above, read the information below and complete the attached exercise for grading. (Adapted worksheet from evergreen.edu/home.htm)

Keep Parallel Structure In Mind When writing, it is important to keep your thoughts and key points "parallel." This aids in maintaining an organized train of thought and communication of ideas to your readers.

Parallel structure creates word patterns that readers can easily follow. Parallel writing structure is simply the repetition of particular grammar structures in a sentence.

*Simple Example: The verbs agree.

Not Parallel- Sue likes biking, the circus, and to take afternoon strolls.

Parallel- Sue likes biking, attending the circus, and taking afternoon strolls. OR Sue likes to bike, attend the circus, and take afternoon strolls.

*Coordinating Conjunction Examples: Clauses or phrases joined with for, and, nor, but, or, yet, or so.

Not Parallel- My boy friend took me dancing and to a movie.

Parallel- My boy friend took me to a dance and a movie.

*Correlative Conjunction Examples: Clauses or phrases joined with not only…but also, either…or, neither…nor, if…then, etc.

Not Parallel- My dog not only likes to play fetch, but also chase cars.

Parallel- My dog not only likes to play fetch, but he also likes to chase cars. OR My dog likes not only to play fetch, but also to chase cars.

*Phrases or Clauses of Comparison Examples: Clauses or phrases joined with a word of comparison, such as than or as.

Not Parallel: I would rather pay for my college education than financial aid.

Parallel I would rather pay for my college education than receive financial aid.

*List Examples:Items in a list follow the same grammar structure. Each item in the list could stand as its own sentence without the other items listed.

Not Parallel Sam Stant criticizes public libraries because they are disorganized, funded by the government, and destroy the public's sense of self discovery.

Parallel Sam Stant criticizes public libraries because they are disorganized, government-funded, and normalizing. OR Sam Stant criticizes public libraries because they require the public to attend, receive money from the government, and destroy the public's individuality.

Sentence Workshop - Clauses and phrases as sentence parts

Note that this assignment does not have a "must score" value listed.  If you are trying for an A or B in this class, you should submit this assignment.  Otherwise, you may skip it.

This assignment addresses the Core Language Standards, Grades 9-10, for the use of parallel structure and various types of phrases and clauses. Refer to the examples below to help you write your own sentences:

 Phrases and clauses acting as nouns in sentences -

In this assignment, we are using the terminology classifying phrases or clauses by their function. Specifically, in this section we are looking for phrases or clauses that act as NOUNS (to be subjects or objects). Generally, these phrases will be gerunds (-ing forms acting as nouns) or infinitives ( to ___ forms acting as nouns), though it is possible to use prepositional phrases as nouns.

Phrases as subjects (These sentences may have only one clause.)

Being on time is important to Jared. [phrase as simple subject]

To go to the game or to stay home were not the only choices. [parallel phrases as compound subject]

Chopping the vegetables, sautéing the onions, and browning the meat will all be done in advance.[parallel phrases as compound subject]

Phrases as objects (These sentences may have only one clause.)

Gabriella wants to play hockey this winter. [phrase as object of verb]

Peter's skills include programming in C++.[phrase as object of verb]

01.08 Tectonic Plates and Nature of Science (Earth Systems)

teacher-scored 10 points possible 60 minutes

Science in action---this is the object of our study. In this assignment, you will see that scientists do not always agree, that explanations change as more information becomes available, that creative thinking and imagination are vital to scientific endeavors, and that science produces a growing, changing body of knowledge. In the process, you will also learn about the theory of plate tectonics. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?

Assignment:

· Go to the USGS Publication called “This Dynamic Earth” in the URL's.

· Scroll down to CONTENTS and click on “Historical Perspective”.

· At the end of each screen, click on the arrow pointing to the right until you have read “Developing the Theory”

· Scroll through “Understanding Plate Motions” and “Hotspots” and then read “Some Unanswered Questions”.

· Fill out the following worksheet as you go through the screens.

· The other web sites in the URL's also have some excellent, easy-to-understand information on plate tectonics.

PLATE TECTONICS WORKSHEET--Use complete sentences to answer the questions.

1. James Hutton developed the “Uniformitarian Principle” which, simply stated, says that “The present is the key to the past.” What does this mean in terms of geology?

2. What is the theory of continental drift?

3. Who developed the idea of continental drift into a full blown, scientific theory? When?

4. What scientific data was used to support the theory of continental drift? Identify and explain at least four types of evidence.

5. What were the problems with the theory of continental drift?

6. Imagine that you are a scientist living at the time that Wagner proposed his theory. What might you have thought of his theory? What biases might you have had that would influence your acceptance of the theory?

7. The theory of continental drift evolved into the theory of plate tectonics. What four scientific developments influenced the development of the plate tectonics theory?

8. What is ocean floor mapping?

9. How did ocean floor mapping provide evidence for plate tectonics?

10. What is magnetic striping and polar reversal?

11.How did magnetic striping and polar reversal provide evidence for plate tectonics?

12. What is sea floor spreading?

13. How did sea floor spreading give evidence for plate tectonics?

14. If the sea floor is getting bigger, why isn’t the Earth getting bigger? Explain.

15.How does the concentration of earthquakes and volcanoes give evidence for plate tectonics?

16.What drives the plates?

17. The website says “Both the Earth’s surface and its interior are in motion.” Some believe that the Earth is solid. How does its interior move?

18. Describe convection currents.

19. How do convection currents relate to plate tectonics?

20. Until 1990 (not very long ago when you consider the original idea was formalized in 1912), most scientists believed that sea floor spreading was the primary force making the plates move. What is now considered to be the driving force of plate tectonics?

21. The fact that plates moved in the past and that they still move today is considered beyond dispute by most scientists. What do scientists still have to learn about plate tectonics?

22. At the beginning of the assignment, I promised you that the story of the theory of plate tectonics was a story of science in action. How was it a story of science in action? How does the development of the theory of plate tectonics illustrate how scientific theories change?

23. In your mind, what is a theory? Can theories change? Who makes theories? What has to happen to a scientific explanation for it to become a theory?

3. When you click on the link, you will be directed to a page with each subject area listed at the top. You need to choose English or Reading for this class but feel free to visit this site again for help in the other areas. There are five sample selections from the English test and four for the Reading section. Please complete ONE test in each category. As you answer each question, it will tell you if you are correct or incorrect. If you are incorrect, you will be given an explanation of the correct answer.

The assignment that you will turn in for points for this activity will need the following things for full credit (20 Points Total):

1. Assignment will be completed on a word processing document; please include your name. (2 Points) Also include the following:
2. The number of problems you got correct (on the first attempt) and the total number of questions completed for each test. (3 points each test= 6 points total)
3. Write down one thing you learned from the English test and one thing you learned from the Reading test. (3 points each test= 6 points total)
4. On the word document, also include a screen shot of both tests that you took. (One screen shot of the Reading test and one screen shot of the English test). To do this, use the “Print Screen” key on your keyboard (usually found above the number pad). Push this key when you are in the program and then you just need to paste it into a word processing document. If you are on a Macintosh, you probably have a utility called "Grab" you can use to get a screen shot.  If you have questions about this, please let me know.

01.09.01 Reading Log

teacher-scored 20 points possible 30 minutes

This assignment is designed to help you study for the corresponding quiz. It covers all material in lesson 01.10. It is important to follow the instructions carefully in order to receive the most credit possible for this assignment.

The ID Terms are similar to definitions EXCEPT they add the element of WHY? What I mean is this; after you have defined the word or told me who the person is you then need to tell me WHY they are important to this point in history. This means that you should have 2 short sentences for each of the ID Terms. You will not get half points for this part of the assignment. If you don't have BOTH sentences you won't get credit. The other thing is; you MUST avoid broad generalizations like; "if they didn't do what they did the world would be different." So what you'll need to do think for a minute. Definitions are what I call basic regurgitation, you read something and then spit it back out in written form. By adding the WHY element I am hopefully training you to analyze what you've read a little bit. By asking yourself, "Why is this person or thing important or significant?" You are making a connection in your brain and analyzing, which is a higher brain function than regurgitation.

The Short Answer questions just need to be answered. Each one is a little bit different, some may only require a 1 sentence answer while others may need to be 3 or 5 sentences. You will receive credit on these as long as they are answered correctly, which demonstrates your understanding of the concept addressed in the question.

teacher-scored 10 points possible 45 minutes

Write a short paragraph (2 to 3 sentences) to describe what would happen in EACH of the following scenarios. You need to write a paragraph for each scenario.

1. How do volcanic eruptions affect the weather? [NOTE: Weather is the day-to-day condition of the atmosphere. For example the weather may be rainy one day and sunny the next.]
2. How do volcanic eruptions affect the climate? [NOTE: Climate is a long term description of the average temperature and precipitation of an area. For example, much of Southern Utah has a desert climate because it is usually hot and dry.]
3. How does mountain building affect waterways and drainage patterns? [NOTE: Mountain building is when mountains are built up by forces within the Earth, usually convergent margins.]
4. How might uplift affect species diversity? [NOTE: Uplift is when forces inside the Earth cause massive pieces of the Earth's crust to be lifted up. Uplift causes mountains or high plateaus to exist where there was previously low ground.]
5. How might upwelling (the rising of super heated water) from ocean vents affect the ocean biome?
6. Identify AND explain how the movement of the plates affects a matter cycle.
7. Identify AND explain how the movement of the plates affects energy flow in the Earth.

WOW! That was easy--only seven questions. If you answered all seven questions correctly and used complete sentences, you will earn a GREAT grade.

02.01 Water Knowledge (Earth Systems)

teacher-scored 10 points possible 45 minutes

This is probably the most classroom-like assignment you will do during this course. It is simple really. All you have to do is read the following article and answer the questions.

WATER READING ASSIGNMENT:

As Utah is the second-driest state in the nation, fresh water is a precious resource. Even though water is a familiar substance, it is a very peculiar compound. Water has some exceptional qualities that will be examined in the following paragraphs.

When electrons are not shared equally in a covalent bond, the molecule is described as polar. This means that while water molecules are neutral as a whole, one end of the water molecule tends to have a positive charge while the other has a negative charge. Each end of a water molecule is attracted to the opposite charged end of another water molecule. Consequently, water's polarity is responsible for the cohesion or "stickiness" between the molecules.

Cohesion of water causes capillary attraction which is the ability of water to move uphill in small spaces. Water will move up the fibers of a plant because of cohesion. This force helps plants get the water they need to survive. In addition, it moves water upwards in soil. Cohesion of water also causes surface tension, water's invisible skin which allows water striders to walk on water.

Polarity is also related to solubility. Polar substances can dissolve other polar substances. Non-polar substances dissolve other non-polar substances. Polar substances and non-polar substances, however, do not mix. Dirt sticks to clothes and skin because it is combined with a thin layer of oil. Because water is polar and oil is non-polar , washing clothes in water alone does not remove all the dirt. Soap weakens the surface tension of water and increases the solubility of oils. This is why soap is used to clean clothes.

While one end of a soap molecule dissolves in water, the other dissolves in oil. This special dual ability of soap permits it to break up dirt so it can be removed easily. The polar end of the soap molecule dissolves in the water while the non-polar end dissolves in the oil. In this way, the oil is broken into droplets, surrounded by soap molecules, and dispersed. The droplets of oil do not merge together because the polar ends of the soap molecules have similar charges and repel each other. Because soap does not work very well in hard water, phosphates are often added to laundry detergents. The addition of phosphates to lakes can initiate the process of eutrophication.

Phosphates and nitrates are nutrients that algae use for growth. When these nutrients are available in abundance, algae may undergo explosive growth: an algae bloom. Eventually the bloom will die off and sink. Bacteria will then break down the dead plant material. These bacteria use up most of the oxygen dissolved in the water, leaving fish and other animals that live near the lake bottom to suffocate. This process, called eutrophication, is set in motion when excessive amounts of phosphates and nitrates enter the natural ecosystem. Some sources of these dissolved nutrients include raw sewage, fertilizer run-off, detergents, and animal wastes.

When the algae bloom dies off, it will sink to the bottom of the lake because it is denser than water. In the same way, cold water and salty water tend to sink to the bottom of a body of water. Cold water and salt water are denser than fresh water of normal temperature; therefore, cold and salt water sink in a body of water. This is a major cause of deep ocean currents. When ice freezes near the poles, the salt concentrates in the liquid water of the ocean. The remaining water becomes more salty and therefore denser. The dense, salty water sinks deep into the ocean. As the salty, dense water sinks down and other, less salty water flows in on top of it, a current is created. The density of water increases with depth.

Some animals change their depth by changing their density. Recall that things that are denser than their surroundings sink, while those that are less dense than their surroundings float. Most fish have a swim bladder, a special sac that is filled with gases from their blood. When the fish's swim bladder is full, it is less dense than the surrounding water and the fish will rise towards the surface.

Another property of water that affects lakes is the unique changes in density during phase changes. The density of most substances increases when a liquid becomes a solid. This is not so for water: Solid water is actually less dense than liquid water. It is for this reason that ice floats. Can you imagine a world where ice sank? Lakes would freeze from the bottom up, killing many fish. Frozen water in the Polar Regions would sink and change the ocean levels. The fact that ice floats is essential for the survival of many aquatic ecosystems and ultimately life on Earth.

Besides the changes in density, there are other ways in which the phase changes of water have significant impacts. When water is trapped in small cracks in rocks, it will expand as it freezes and break up the rock causing weathering. The transpiration (evaporation) of water from a good-sized tree can move 1800 liters of water out of the ground in a single day. Sublimation, the phase change between solid and gas, is responsible for the formation of frost.

As you can see, water has many special properties that make its role in nature unique. It is considered the "universal solvent" because its bipolar molecule enables it to dissolve a wide variety of substances. Water is the only substance that occurs naturally in all three states; solid, liquid, and gas. Water is truly a miracle for life!

02.01.05 Assignment 033 (Adult Roles)

teacher-scored 15 points possible 20 minutes

Assignment Thirty-three: Rewrite each of the definitions for Constructive Communication (just below) and put them in your own words. You can make it very short--it does not have to be a complete sentence.

METHODS OF CONSTRUCTIVE COMMUNICATION:

1. "I" MESSAGES: State the feelings and thoughts you are having at the time of communication.
"I feel frustrated when you tell me to call you and then you are not home or the line is busy."
"I would like you to call me when you are going to be late."
This type of statement clearly indicates who is sending the message. It is also good because it lets you be responsible for your own thoughts and feelings without blaming the other person.

2. CLARITY: This involves meaning what you say and then saying what you mean. Many people only hint at what they want to say. This can cause problems in interpretation. Sarcasm is an example of ways people use to say one thing but mean something different. This only confuses the person with whom you are communicating. For example, "I hope you had a great time at the movie last night with all your other friends!" is not the best way to state your feelings. A better way to communicate your true meaning would be to say, "I felt badly last night when I heard you invited everyone but me to go to the movie." This way there is no second guessing what the message means.

3. TIMING: Select a good time to do your important communicating. An example of bad timing is the daughter who begins telling her father what a lousy day she had at school before her father has even had time to take off his coat after work. Another example is the son who wants to have a heart- to-heart talk with his mother about his new girlfriend at dinner time. A good way to tell if the timing is appropriate is to look for nonverbal messages as well as verbal messages. It is also important to let the person who wants to communicate with you know if the time is bad for you. You might say, "This is a bad time for me right now. Can we sit down after dinner when things are more settled?"

4. ASKING QUESTIONS: People seldom say what they really mean the first time. Collecting more information helps the speaker feel like you are listening and trying to understand.
"Why do you think that Mr. Jones doesn't like you?"
"What did Mr. Jones say to you?"
"Where were you when your friends left you?"

5. REFLECTIVE LISTENING: Reflecting is when the listener mirrors back the thoughts and/or feelings the speaker is experiencing. When the listener accurately reflects the speaker’s thoughts or feelings, the speaker then knows he/she is being understood.
"Are you saying that you want to quit your job?"
"You seem to be feeling angry about that."
If the listener is wrong in his/her interpretation of the statement the speaker can restate or explain his/her feelings in a different way.

6. RESPECT AND CONSIDERATION: One sure way of ending good communication is by being critical or judgmental. Everyone wants to be shown respect. No one wants to be made to feel foolish or put down. It is important to respect the other person's point of view even if it is different from yours. Sometimes we do not understand why the person feels the emotion they feel. In these cases it is important to allow the person to express his/her emotions even when you do not agree or understand.

7. AVOIDING INTENSE ANGER: Sometimes we become too emotional to communicate effectively. Shouting, name calling, and physical expressions of anger build roadblocks, destroy self-esteem (of both people), and create fear. If you find yourself in this type of situation it is best to be honest and tell the other person you are too upset to talk at that time.
"I am too angry to talk about this right now. I'm going for a walk
and we can talk when I get back."
"If I say anything right now, I'll be sorry. I'm not in control of my
emotions. Can we talk about this later?"
Be sure to keep your word and communicate as soon as you can do so in a constructive way.

02.01.06 Climate Maps- Continents (World Geography)

teacher-scored 70 points possible 60 minutes

The seven continents of the world have many different climates. In this assignment you will put, on a map of the world (or map of each continent), the climates that each continent has. It will be important for you to pay attention to the different climates that is located on each continent. Climate is the average weather of a certain area over a long period of time. Each continent has many different climates because of latitude, elevation, landforms, closeness to an ocean or large body of water. For example: the climate of the Wasatch front (Ogden to Provo) is cold winters, and hot summers. Most of the precipitation arrives in the winter and spring. The summers and falls are generally dry. If you take someplace that has a similar latitude as the Wasatch front you will find that the climate can change because of the water and elevation factors. For example, San Francisco is about the same latitude as Salt Lake City. Only 3 degrees difference in latitude but because San Francisco is by the ocean and at sea level, it has a completely different climate. It has moderate winters and cool summers. Refer to the charts below for comparison.

San Francisco

Here you can see that the climate in San Francisco is milder than the climate in Salt Lake City.

Copy the outline maps and then click on the link for the climates of the world. Color each continent according to the climates that are there. Make sure you put a KEY on your map(s).

Outline maps: http://www.eduplace.com/ss/maps/ Click on the map you are going to do. Either the world or on each continent.

NOTE: you may have trouble attaching all of the maps. One student who was successful at doing so told me the following "You asked how I could fit so many maps into my submission. First, I scanned them at a low resolution and then I zipped them using WinZip into one file and uploaded that one file." Hope that helps. If not, send the maps that won't fit to me through e-mail.
You may also find this information from a fellow student who did an awesome job on this assignment helpful:
"You asked how I made my climate maps for assignment 2.6. Once I opened up a map on the site you gave us, I hit the screen print button at the top of my keyboard. I then opened up the Microsoft Paint application and hit Edit then Paste. The screen print came up and I was then able to crop the image down so I was just viewing the map. (To crop, I outlined the area I wanted to keep in the image with the flashing dotted lines used for cropping, then hit Image then Crop). Then I just painted in the colors to match the colored climate map on the website. To insert the keys, I made separate images on Paint with just the colored blocks I used in each map. The nice thing about using powerpoint is that I am able to insert multiple images into each slide. So I just matched the keys with the corresponding map and then inserted text boxes for all of the text

teacher-scored 15 points possible 15 minutes

Assignment Thirty-six: Rewrite each of the definitions for Destructive Communication and put it in your own words. They are shown below--again, you do not have to write a complete sentence, just keep it short. :)

METHODS OF DESTRUCTIVE COMMUNICATION:
1. BLAMING: Family members frequently blame each other while trying to find out who is at fault, who started the fight, and so forth. Blaming hurts feelings, results in arguments, and reduces self-esteem.

2. INTERRUPTING: When someone interrupts another person, it is a sign that one idea is more important than another. Frequent interruptions stop clear communication and show disregard for other people's ideas.

3. ENDLESS FIGHTING: There are arguments that never end. This is when you bring up things that are old and have nothing to do with what is happening now. For example, you have an argument with your father about the car and who should pay for the gas. For weeks after that, your father brings up the fact that you brought the car home with the gas gauge on empty.

4. CHARACTER ASSASSINATION: Character assassination involves name calling, belittling comments about sensitive subjects, and insulting remarks. These actions destroy self-esteem, trust and communication. Words once said cannot be taken back! Sarcasm can be a form of character assassination. Be very careful to avoid this form of communication.

5. CALLING IN REINFORCEMENTS: This is when you involve outsiders in your personal relationships and quarrels. Positions instantly harden because you now feel the need to save face. It also breaks the bond of trust that you need to build in all good relationships. This is one of the most damaging things that can be done in communication.

6. WITHDRAWAL: Withdrawing from communication and avoiding conversation in families communicates hurt, rejection, neglect, indifference, and/or anger. It is basically saying, "I don't care enough about you to work this out." Of course if you are so upset that you cannot communicate in a kind and loving way, you should take a cooling-off period and then resume the conversation.

7. NEED TO BE RIGHT: Some people refuse to admit any wrongdoing because they have a need to always be right! This is a sign of poor self-esteem. Compromise is always the best way to communicate. Both people then feel like winners and feel respected and understood.

14. What is biological sampling?
15. How does biological sampling help a scientist to determine water quality?

* Click on “Three Big Pollutants”

16. Write a paragraph describing each of the three big pollutants. Explain why each is a pollution problem.

* Click on “Where Are These Pollutants Coming From?”

17. Where are the majority of our pollutants coming from?
18. How does pavement increase water pollution problems?
19. How do straightened streams and cement-lined canals increase water pollution problems?

PART TWO: The first part of this assignment was a simple “read-and-write” exercise. The answers to the questions were all found in the reading material. The next part of this assignment requires you to think and analyze. Use the information you learned above to answer the following questions. Be sure to use COMPLETE SENTENCES to answer the questions.

1. Water released from a dam comes from the bottom of the reservoir, which means that it is VERY cold. Why would colder-than-normal water be considered a water pollution problem?
2. To build a housing development, engineers changed the path of a local stream. As a result the stream flowed more slowly than usual, so the sun had more time to warm the stream waters. As a consequence the water temperature in the stream increased ten degrees Celsius. Why would warm water be considered a water pollution problem?
3. You test the D.O. in a local stream and find that it is much lower than normal. What conclusions can you draw from this data?
4. You test the pH of a local stream and find that it is 5.5. What does this data tell you?
5. You want your lawn to be extra green for an upcoming party so you double the recommended amount of fertilizer you apply to your lawn. What water pollution problem could occur as a result of your action? [Fertilizer is a plant nutrient. Think what would happen to local streams, rivers, and lakes if extra plant nutrients were added.]
6. Lead is found in your water supply. Why is this a problem?
7. A lake you love to visit is usually very clear. Road construction upstream has caused the lake to be very turbid. Give two reasons why this is a water pollution problem.
8. Cattle are grazed on the mountain side. Give two reasons why this might be a water pollution problem for the streams in the area.
9. You love to fish and have found that, by turning over rocks in the streams where you fish, you can find “rock rollers” (little worm-like insect larvae) that work well as bait. This year, when you go to fish, you find that, where there once were hundreds of “rock rollers”, now there are very few. Why does this indicate a water pollution problem?
10. How are water temperature and D.O. related?

Good job! Send me the answers to ALL these questions, both parts one and two. If you have read and thought well and have used complete sentences to answer the questions, you will receive a good grade.

02.07 Where Does Water Come From? (Earth Systems)

teacher-scored 10 points possible 60 minutes

Assignment:

Utah Water Supply

Utah has an average annual precipitation of 13 inches which makes it the second driest state in the United States. Precipitation varies from 5 inches in the semi-arid desert areas to 60 inches in some high mountain regions. In the mountains most of the precipitation occurs in the form of snow which, during spring runoff, feeds the state's natural and manmade storage systems.

Annually, Utah's watersheds yield an average of about 8.5 million acre feet of water, and each year about 1 million acre feet of water is recharged to the groundwater basins. [An acre foot of water is the amount of water it would take to cover a football field with one foot of water—-326,000 gallons, about the amount required by an average family of five for a year.] In all but one of the groundwater basins, recharge equals withdrawal; withdrawal exceeds recharge in the Cedar-Beaver by a total of about 23,000 acre feet annually.

An additional source of groundwater exists in Utah's West where an estimated 72 million acre feet in water-bearing aquifers lie within about 500 feet of the Earth's surface. However, because the West is so remote, there has been no economical way to develop this precious resource.

Condensed from the "Utah Water Plan, Section 5: Water Supply and Use."

This assignment has TWO parts. Part One is a “read-and-regurgitate” assignment. You will read the information from the specified websites and will answer the designated questions. Part Two is an investigative assignment. You will makes a phone call or two and find out exactly where in Utah your water comes from. You must do BOTH parts to receive credit for the assignment.

Part One:

Go to the Water Supply website in the URL's and use the information you read there to answer the questions below. Use complete sentences to answer the questions.

1. In Northern Utah, when does the majority of the precipitation occur?
2. In Northern Utah, what is the fall precipitation mostly used for?
3. In Southern Utah, in which month does the most snowfall occur?
4. From which month to which month is considered a water year?
5. Where does the majority of Utah’s precipitation come in the winter?
6. Where does the majority of Utah’s precipitation come from in the summer?

Go to the Drought Reports website in the URL's and use the information you read there to answer the questions below.

Look up a reservoir in your area. You can click on the name of the reservior (on the left hand side of the page) for more information.

7. What is the name of a reservoir that is relatively close to where you live?
8. What is the total capacity of that reservoir?
9. What is the average amount of water in that reservior on Sept 30 of any year?
10. What is the current amount of water in reservoir?

Part Two:
02.07 artesian well02.07 artesian well
Go to the Utah Conservation Districts website in the URL's and look up the water district that services your home. Use complete sentences to answer the questions below.

A. What is the name of the water district that services your home?

B. What is the phone number of your local water district?

Call the phone number and ask the person who answers if you can interview them about water usage in your water district. You may have to make several phone calls. Do NOT give up until you have the required information. I know the information is available and will not accept excuses for not getting it. It may require some extensive effort, but it can be done. Do it!

C. What is the name of the person with whom you spoke?

D. Where does culinary (the water that comes to the tap in your home) come from in your local district? Find out the specific name of the river, reservoir, or well that your water comes from. Do NOT just give the name of a water district.

E. Where does secondary (irrigation) water come from in your area? Find out the specific name of the river, reservoir, or well. Do NOT just give the name of a water district.

F. How does your water district deal with water shortages and drought?

G. How does your water district ensure that water is safe to drink?

H. What is the greatest water pollution issue locally?

FANTASTIC!! Now you are bright, intelligent, AND educated about where your local water comes from. Congratulations!

Send me your assignment. Be sure to include BOTH Part One and Part Two. If you do not send Part One and Two at the same time, I will return the assignment to you. If you do send Parts One and Two, and if you satisfactorily respond to all of the questions, then you will earn a great grade.

02.07.02 Adjective and Adverb Review (English 9)

teacher-scored 15 points possible 45 minutes

What are Adjectives and Adverbs?
(see also lesson 02.7 and links, and listen to the audio introductions, in the links below)

One of the most important things to realize is that most words can be different parts of speech, depending on how they are used in the sentence. For example, the word "fast":

I wanted to ride a fast horse. (fast tells what kind of horse - it is an adjective)

He ran really fast. (fast tells how he ran - it is an adverb)

We decided we would fast tomorrow. (fast - along with its helper, would - is a verb)

Our fast should last twelve hours. (fast is the subject of the sentence - it is a noun)

Therefore, to figure out what a word is, you have to look and see what it is doing in the sentence.

Adjectives modify (describe) nouns. Lots of adjectives tell what something looks, sounds, smells, feels or tastes like, or how many there are. If you ask yourself the question, "What kind of bear?" (or "what kind of car?" or "what kind of person?" etc), the one-word answers would normally be adjectives: blue, furry, fast, grumpy, noisy, smelly, nice, tall, happy, rusty, etc.

Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. They often tell where (here, there, home, away, nearby) , when (soon, yesterday, later, afterwards, beforehand) or how (quickly, cheerfully, fast, slowly, painfully) you do something, or to what degree (very, really, extremely, too).

Go to Topic 3 for instructions and to turn in the Adjectives and Adverbs assignment.

This assignment is designed to help you study for the corresponding quiz. It covers all material in the lessons 02.10 through 02.13. It is important to follow the instructions carefully in order to receive the most credit possible for this assignment.

The ID Terms are similar to definitions EXCEPT they add the element of WHY? What I mean is this; after you have defined the word or told me who the person is you then need to tell me WHY they are important to this point in history. This means that you should have 2 short sentences for each of the ID Terms. You will not get half points for this part of the assignment. If you don't have BOTH sentences you won't get credit. The other thing is; you MUST avoid broad generalizations like; "if they didn't do what they did the world would be different." So what you'll need to do think for a minute. Definitions are what I call basic regurgitation, you read something and then spit it back out in written form. By adding the WHY element I am hopefully training you to analyze what you've read a little bit. By asking yourself, "Why is this person or thing important or significant?" You are making a connection in your brain and analyzing, which is a higher brain function than regurgitation.

The Short Answer questions just need to be answered. Each one is a little bit different, some may only require a 1 sentence answer while others may need to be 3 or 5 sentences. You will receive credit on these as long as they are answered correctly, which demonstrates your understanding of the concept addressed in the question.

Introduction: The Amazon Rain Forest is the largest rainforest in the world. About two-thirds of this forest is located in Brazil. More than 100 tree species can be found in one acre of this huge forest. There are many species of plants and animals thriving in this ecosystem. In recent years there has been more concern about protecting this area. Deforestation, the cutting down and clearing of trees, is a major concern. According to some estimates, over ten percent of the Amazon rainforest have been destroyed. Many activities have contributed to the practice of deforestation. Construction, farming, cattle ranches and lumber products all play a role in the destruction of these forests. Scientists are worried and feel that this practice might have serious long-term effects that could be impossible to overcome. There was once great concern that widespread deforestation might affect the earth's oxygen balance. This idea is no longer thought to be likely. The big concern now is the effect it might have on the heat balance of the earth. The earth might be threatened with a dangerous warming effect. It can also affect the water cycle, disrupting rainfall in areas around the globe. Another concern is that it might cause animal and plant species to become extinct. We need these species for medicine and other commercial use. There is alarm in the science community that there could be cures for many illnesses in the rain forests that we have not discovered yet; if the plant and animal species become extinct, we might never know their value. Which of the Five Themes of Geography do you think this lesson focuses on the most? If you guessed Human/Environment Interaction, you are right! Now it's time to travel to the tropical rainforest and discover what types of insects and animals live there.

03.02.01 Borderland Questions(Geo4Life1)

teacher-scored 100 points possible 120 minutes

Introduction: Often people mistakenly think that the US/Mexico border not only divides two countries, but also divides two cultures. The truth is that the towns along both sides of the border often have their own unique “Bordertown” culture. These are places where English and Spanish are both spoken. Places where kids legally cross over the border to go to school and cross back to go home at night. In Bordertowns the food, music, holidays, language, traditions and clothing are heavily influenced by both American and Mexican traditions.

As you go through the slideshow of pictures, quotes and videos about Borderland, consider the unique border culture that has been created by people traveling back and forth between the two countries.

Assignment:

Each description should be written in COMPLETE SENTENCES. Do NOT write one or two word answers. In each description, tell me how the two spheres interact, and write one or two sentences telling about how the interaction changes the atmosphere.

For example, for my description of an interaction between the atmosphere and the biosphere, I could write the following: Animals need oxygen to live. Oxygen is found in the atmosphere. Animals change the atmosphere when they breathe. They breathe in oxygen which removes some oxygen from the atmosphere and they exhale carbon dioxide, which puts some carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere.

Here is the assignment:

1. Describe a way the atmosphere interacts with the hydrosphere.
2. Describe a way the atmosphere interacts with the biosphere. (Do NOT use my animal example.)
3. Describe a way the atmosphere interacts with the geosphere.

NOTE: There are no specific correct answers for this assignment. There is not a place where you can go to find the answers. This assignment requires you to think. Use what you know about the various spheres to answer the questions.

Use your classification skills that you tuned in unit 2. Make a dichotomous key in your lab notebook of the following list of familiar elements. There is a sample below to help you.

Familiar Elements:

- Helium (Used in welding and party balloons – FUN!)
- Oxygen (O2 is the oxygen we breathe, O3 is ozone – in the atmosphere, protects us froms sun's ultraviolet rays.)
- Aluminum (Many uses including, cans and electrical transmission lines.)
- Copper (Used in electrical wiring and plumbing.)
- Silver (Used in jewelry, photography, and dental applications.)
- Gold (Many monetary systems are based on gold, commonly used in jewelry.)
- Lead (Used in batteries, used to be a common ingredient in paint.)
- Neon (Used in lighgted signs and some lasers.)
- Sodium (Table salt is sodium chloride. Sodium, in compounds has many industrial applications.)
- Mercury (Used some thermometers and electrical switches.)

Distinguishing factors you might consider using are the common state of matter (solid, liquid, gas), metal or non-metal, reactivity, density, melting point, appearance, color, etc.

** “Di” is a prefix that means 2. “Di” refers to the fact that there are 2 choices. If you do not know how to make a dichotomous key, below is a sample of a simple bug key.

Sample Bug Dichotomous Key

The bug has 6 legs . . . . . . . . . . go to #2
The bug has 8 legs . . . . . . . . . . go to #3

#2 The bug is red with black spots . . . .LADY BUG

Instructions:

For each problem, you need to apply each of the eight steps listed in the text. On your paper, clearly identify which step you are doing. This should look just like the examples in the text.

Problem #1:
A student is balancing on a platform set on a spring. The spring has a spring constant of 8100 N/m, and it is compressed a distance of 7.2 cm (0.072 m). The platform has a mass of 5.0 kg. What is the normal force of the platform on the student?


Problem #2:
A bucket is hanging from a tree limb. The bucket is filled with cherries. If the tension on the rope is 64 N, and the bucket has a mass of 1.2 kg, what is the mass of the cherries? (Treat all the cherries as if they were one object. Then you have two objects, the bucket and the cherries.)


Problem #3:
A 6.0 kg brick is attached to the end of a spring. The spring is bouncing up and down. If the spring constant is 4300 N/m, at what value of Δx will the brick have a downwards acceleration of 7.1 m/s2?

04.04 Climate, Weather, and Currents (Earth Systems)

teacher-scored 10 points possible 120 minutes

Assignment:

Watch the movie, read the information on the web sites and answer the questions. Use complete sentences to answer all the questions.

* Go to EPA Kid’s Site for Weather and Climate (See URL's) and read the information there.
1. What is weather?
2. What is the weather right now where you live?
3. What is climate?
4. Describe the climate where you live.

The sun’s rays hit the equator directly. The sun’s rays hit the polar regions at an angle. Therefore, the equator receives a much larger amount and intensity of solar radiation than the Polar Regions do. As a result, the equator is much hotter than the North and South Pole. That makes sense, doesn’t it?

Well, if the equator is hotter than the poles, then the air over the equator will be warmed more than the air over the poles, right? Right. So, we know that warm air rises. When the warm air at the equator rises, then something must take its place. Cooler air from the poles moves in. The cooler air is then warmed, and the convection cycle continues. This movement of air is called an air current. These air currents move heat energy around Earth.

Air currents generally move from the poles toward the equator at the Earth’s surface. Of course this is a very simplistic model of what happens. In reality, air currents are affected by the rotation of the Earth, the Earth’s topography, and ocean currents.

5. What causes global air currents?
6. How do global air currents move heat energy around the Earth?
7. Identify three things that affect the global air currents.

Heat energy is also moved around the Earth by ocean currents. Ocean currents affect the climate even here in Utah. Go to Ocean Currents and read the information there.

8. Name five (5) things that affect how ocean currents flow.
9. Why does water rise on the western edge of continents?
10. Ocean currents can be described as global conveyor belts of water. Describe the global conveyor belt of water. What causes it?
11. In which direction does the deep, cold water move?
12. In which direction do the warm-surface currents move?
13. What drives cold-surface currents?
14. What is coastal upwelling?
15. Why is upwelling important to the world’s fisheries?
16. How do ocean currents move heat energy around Earth?

The Coriolis effect also has a role in global wind and ocean current patterns. Go to the Coriolis sites in the URL's to learn what the Coriolis effect is and how it affects wind and ocean currents.

17. In your own words, briefly describe the Coriolis Effect.
18. How does the Coriolis Effect influence global wind patterns?
19. Thanks to the Coriolis Effect, wind moving from the equator towards the North pole deflects in which direction: east, west, north, or south?

Meteorology is the study of the atmosphere and weather. To study meteorology, one must study air currents and ocean currents. To understand weather, one must also understand the topography of an area.

04.04 mountain04.04 mountain

Topography refers to the surface features of a land mass. The topography of the Wasatch Front is mountainous. The topography of southeastern Utah is more flat. Like ocean currents and air currents, topography influences weather patterns.

20. How does mountain topography affect weather?
21. How does flat, dry topography affect weather?
22. Write a paragraph explaining how weather patterns are a result of interactions among ocean currents, air currents, and topography.

Whew! You are done with this assignment. Congratulations! Now, send me the answers to the above questions. Make sure you have written your answers in complete sentences.

05.02.01 Flame Tests(Chemistry2)

teacher-scored 15 points possible 60 minutes

Identifying Elements Through Flame Tests

In chemistry, salt means something different than it does in your daily life. It is a generic term for a substance where positive and negative ions (We'll get more specific about ions later. For now, just think of them as charged atoms. i.e. positive or negative) are bonded together. But, "salts" do not include compounds that are oxides (end with On) or hydroxide (end with OHn). In case you do not know, the little n below the O and the OH represents "any" number. For instance, you could have one or two hydroxides attached to a metal. Either way, it would not be a salt. "Flame" tests can be used to identify some metallic ions. In this section we will look at how this is done.

Flame Tests

15 Points

Read the information of flame test at the following web site.

Why was Nelson Mandela called the "black pimpernel"? 7. Nelson Mandela won the _______________________ in 1993, and was the first democratically elected _______________________ of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. 8. What is racism? 9. Site some examples of racism you have noticed in your life, community or school. Nelson Mandela was a true leader who sacrificed much to bring about a better life for the people he loved. I especially liked these two quotes from Mandela that give me an idea of how Nelson Mandela felt about things. "For me, there is no place like home." "I detest racism, because I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man or a white man." Think for a moment about the life of Nelson Mandela. He lived in a different country, but fought for many of the same things we have fought for in our own country. Though his fight was long and very tough, and is still going on, he did much in his attempt to bring democracy and equal rights for all races in South Africa. 10. After reading about Nelson Mandela, what do YOU think about Nelson Mandela? 11. What cause would you be willing to speak up for, work for, or suffer for in your own neighborhood, state or nation?

05.04.04 - 2-D Problems (Physics)

teacher-scored 80 points possible 80 minutes

This is the same type of assignment as the 1-D Problems. I want you to go through the steps of solving a Newton's Law problem. This means you need to do it on paper. Then you need to either snail mail the pages to me, or scan them in, and send me the electronic file. I prefer .pdf or .jpg.

Instructions:

For each problem, you need to apply each of the 8 steps in listed in the text. On your paper, clearly identify which step you are doing. This should look just like the examples in the text.

Problem #1:
A bored student is idly pushing his computer mouse across his desk. The mouse has a mass of 0.19 kg, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the mouse and the desk is 0.24. If the student applies a horizontal force of 12 mN (0.012 N), what is the acceleration of the mouse?


Problem #2:
2 blocks are connected by a string over a frictionless pulley such that one block is sitting on the table, and the other block is hanging over the edge. The table is frictionless, and the blocks have an acceleration of 1.9 m/s2. If the block hanging off the table has a mass of 1.0 kg, what is the mass of the block sliding across the table?


Problem #3:
2 blocks are connected by a string over a frictionless pulley such that one block is sitting on the table, and the other block is hanging over the edge. If the block on the table has a mass of 6.1 kilograms, and the block hanging over the edge has a mass of 5.5 kilograms, what coefficient of kinetic friction will allow the system to slide at a constant velocity.


Problem #4:
A student is reorganizing her dorm room. She puts a box of stuff on top of her desk and pushes the desk across the room. The box has a mass of 15 kg, the desk has a mass of 36 kg, the coefficient of static friciton between them is 0.74, and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the desk and the ground is 0.28. What is the maximum horizontal force the student can apply to the desk without the box slipping off?

---------------------------
Grading:

Each problem is worth 20 points. The points will be allocated according to the steps in the table below:

Step Point Value
Draw a Picture 1 point
Draw and Label the Forces 3 points
Choose a Coordinate System 1 point
Apply Newton's Second Law 4 points
Substitute Known Forces 3 points
Solve the Algebra 4 points
Plug in Numbers 2 points
Answer the Question 2 points



This means you need to do it on paper. Then you need to either snail mail the pages to me, or scan them in, and send me the electronic file. I prefer .pdf or .jpg.

E-mail me if you get stuck!
