Welcome to 8B! January 15, 2018

6th, 7th & 8th Science
 
We are continuing to stress the importance of organizational skills and time management skills.  Please stress to your child the importance of doing homework on the day it is assigned, keeping their binders and lockers organized.  We have a flex period that students may utilize to visit a teacher if they are having trouble with their homework. 

8th Grade
We are starting our third cell, Electricity and Magnetism.  
Through investigations and experimentation, students will find that voltage and current are proportionally related, and that the ratio of voltage to current is resistance. Students will discover that this relationship between voltage, current, and resistance is defined as Ohm's Law, increasing voltage increases the amount of current in a circuit while resistance remains constant, regardless the size of the resistor.  This is also true when the voltage is held constant while the amount of resistance changes. They will discover that changing the number or resistors has the same effect as changing the diameter or the length of a resistor.  

 
Students will investigate the role of a current in a magnetic field.  The magnitude of an electromagnet's magnetic field is directly related to the number of coils of wire around the magnet, the length of the coil, and the amount of current flowing through the wire.  


Upcoming Tests and Due Dates
Vocabulary Quiz - Thursday Jan. 25
Unit test - Thursday Feb. 1

7th Grade
We have started our third cell, Acids and Bases.  The students will have the opportunity to investigate the concept of concentration by investigating acids and bases.  They will investigate hydrogen ion (H+) concentration by using the pH scale, the effect of dilution of an acid on the pH, and the effect of neutralizing an acid with a base on the hydrogen ion concentration and the pH.

We have started are first unit, Atmosphere. Students will perform experiments that are centered around Charles' Law, the relationship between the temperature and density of air and the relationship between density and of the air and atmospheric pressure.  They will become aware of how changes in the temperature of areas of the atmosphere produce changes in the density.  They will begin to understand how the rising and sinking of air that results from changes in density can produce changes in atmospheric pressure and the development of high and low pressure centers.  Through their experiments, students should gain a better understanding of atmospheric events, weather phenomena and the scientific principles that govern them.

We are continuing to stress the importance of organizational skills and time management skills.  Please stress to your child the importance of doing homework on the day it is assigned, keeping their binders and lockers organized.  We have a flex period that students may utilize to visit a teacher if they are having trouble with their homework. 

8th Grade
We are beginning our first cell, Heat and Heat Transfer. 
The students will investigate the relationship between heat, thermal energy, temperature and the physical changes in matter that accompany the transfer of heat.  they will investigate the expansion and contraction of a liquid when placed in environments that differ in kinetic energy.  The students will calibrate their own thermometers and discover why temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy present in an environment or substance.  They will investigate the freezing and boiling points of water, discovering that the addition of a solute can change both water's freezing and boiling point.  Students will also quantify the amount of heat that is absorbed by a solid and calculate the amount of heat that the solid can transfer.  


Upcoming Tests and Due Dates
Vocabulary quiz - November 9
Unit test - November 15
Science Fair Project Jan. 22, 2018


7th Grade
We have started our first cell, Atomic Structure. The students will review the atomic structure of an atom.  They will investigate what makes elements different.  Students will see how the groupings on the Periodic Table denote the chemical and physical properties of the elements.  They will determine what information about an element can be determined by using the Periodic Table.
