Spring.... Break????

TODAY in Science class, we got some of our previous projects, notes and worksheets together for our parent teacher interviews!!!


I included my: -Science fair booklet
                        -Notes on Fluids
                        -Cells and systems test



    We continued on our project on BIOLUINESCENCE!!!
     My groups animal is the PINECONE FISH!!!


We were supposed to get some information about it, such as:

       Name: Pinecone fish (Aka. Monocentride or Monocentris Japonica)
       Facts: -It is aggressive
                  -It is orange by night and green-blue by day
                  -It illuminates with two headlights on its face
                  -Luminous bacteria colonize two organs on the fishes lower jaw and produces a beam of light to help find its prey
      Lives: In the Indo-Pacific ocean to south Africa
              ADVANTAGES Of having bioluminescence:
                  -Able to find prey easily
                        *Able to STAY ALIVE
                  -Able to see easier
              DISADVANTAGES Of having bioluminescence
                 -Predators can find them easier
                 -Prey are able to tell when predator is coming

For science we are learning a new unit called Optics yesterday we watched a Bill Bye video about Optics to introduce us. Today we are learning about Bioluminescence a subject in our Optics unit. We are going to watch a video, and do some questions response on it. We are going to watch it once to just process the information and the second time we are going to answer the questions on our papers.

In today’s class we started a new unit called Optics. We filled out a paper called Optics Anticipation Guide.  Then we watched a Bill Nye video. The video is just at the bottom of the page if you want to watch it. While we were watching the video we had to fill out a sheet which is also just below with the video and the Optics Anticipation Guide. The picture below is what we thought what optics was.

 this person did viscosity.  It was about testing different fluids to see which fluids would flow the fastest.

this girl did the same as the girl before

this guy do water pressure he wanted to see if the heat or the coldness would affect the water pressure.

she did the pop and mentos she was testing to see if  mentos would react to different types of pop. 

this boy was doing stuff with the temp

the kid was doing float or sink and he was testing to se if these things would  float or sink 

this boy was doing pop and mentos

End of Unit Project

In math we been working on the unit 'Linear Equations'. For out end of the unit project we got the choices to show our project in a blog post, music video, original song, poster or other. For my project I decided to do a blog post.

Bradley will give out one piece of candy for each person that attends his sleep over. There are no extra candy because he know how many guys are attending his sleep over. Let 'y' represent the amount of candy Bradley has to hand out.

when I did my word problem I had to correctly get a equation from it and then change it around to make it look weird and solve it myself. Before I did this I made a Cartesian plane because it was easier to make the problem and equation. for my Cartesian plane I had to make a table of values.

equation: y = 1x + 0
equation changed around: +0 = y + 1x
When I did this I had to solve my equation that was changed around.

Something vogue

In science class we finished experiments, information and data for our science projects. Now we are working on our displays to present our experiments. In our booklet it says we need to have...

  • Name of project
  • Reason for the project, your question and what you want to find out
  • A prediction that you make of the results before conducting the experiment.
  • A report of your research on the subject
  • Maybe a list of the books you read and websites you used, Also you should list your interviews.
  • Materials like list of supplies needed for the experiment
  • Procedure like the steps or directions that you used to conduct the experiment
  • Variables like the parts of the experiment that will stay the same and the what will be tested to get the results
  • conclusion like telling what happened, did it work? were you right about the hypothesis? What did you learn?
  • Explain how your experiment relates to the real world to give others better understanding
  • pictures and more pictures

Now im going to give you a couple design examples to give you help..

Float or Sink Expirement

   For our class science fair, I decided to do an expirement to test buoyancy. The question I wanted to solve was if an object floats in one liquid fluid, would it float in all other liquid fluids. For a start I had to do research before I could make my hypothesis. Here are two sites i fond on buoyancy.

    Some important thigs i learned about Buoyancy were...
  •    An object will float if the fluid displaced is greater then the objects wieght
  •    An object will sink if the fluid displaced is lesser then the objects wight
  •    Buoyancy is the opisite force of gravity
  •    A positive buoyancy is when an object floats
  •    A negative buoyany is when an object sinks
  •    A neutral buoyancy is when an objet neather sinks or floats
  •    Buoyancy has two main facters, wieght of an object and the amount of fluid the object displaces
   After my research I was ready to make my hypothesis. My hypotesis was: I think that sertain objects will not float in all fluids because heavier fluidswill not displace as much fluid as in a lighter fluids, there for the affect of bouyancy will not be the same as in water.
   Now it was time for my expirement. The objects that i used were 3 glass (to put the fluids in), ketup, water and honey (the fluids I was testing), a rock, piece of tinfoil and wood (the objects I would drop in the fluid, all about the same size), and a spoon (to retrive the obects after they were droped in the fluids).
   I had to make my procedure next. The steps I took were...
  1. Fill cups with fluids (Ketup,water and honey)
  2. Take piece of wood and drop it in each fluid
  3. Do the same with the rock
  4. Do the same with tinfoil
  5. Record data
   Here are the results for my expiriment.

Wood: Floated in every fluid.
Rock: Floated in honey and ketup, sunk in water.
Tinfoil: Floated in every fluid.

   So in conclusion my hypothesis was right, but i was a bit surprised that the rock didn't sink in the ketup (maybe I didn't use a very dense rock).

Starting the display

Today in class the kids that had already done their experiment were starting their display of the experiment. Those who were not done their experient were collecting their data or finding materials for their display. This is the link for some examples of display boards.--------------------------------->
