Slides - Draft-1 Team Feedback

Each team of two should submit a bullet list of changes they plan to make to their slides based on the feedback from practice presentations. These lists should be submitted via the Trello page. These should be submitted by midnight on Wednesday (you will have time to finish presenting to each other on Wednesday).

Sample Scientific Paper

Attached below is my version of the solar physics paper. You should review it and compare and contrast your scientific writing excerpt from the solar physics project. Based on your comparison and contrast, you may begin writing your scientific paper for your project.

No Network Access at School

posted Apr 12, 2019, 10:43 AM by Nikhil Joshi

The building has electricity again, but we have no network/data access. There will be a few hotspots for teacher to use to take attendance and otherwise access Illuminate, but there will be NO network or internet access for students.

Please plan accordingly - make your google drives available offline, or at least make your project files available offline.

Please work on your quiz corrections. Since you are being given class time to work on them they will be due in class on Thursday.

If you finish early, you may work on other classwork.

No test, yes quiz

Since tomorrow isn’t a full day we’ll push the test to next week. However we have plenty of time to take the chapter 17 quiz.

Snow Day Assignments

With Tuesday cancelled, the C15 test will take precedence over the C17 quiz if we're back in class on the 14th. You may as well begin working on your C17 hot topic, focusing on stellar evolution. Your topic should involve stellar evolution, red giants, and/or the formation of planetary nebulae, white dwarfs, super novas, neutron stars, and black holes, not on those topics in isolation. 

For example, an article talking about the mass limit for the formation of neutron stars would be fine, but a story on the colission of neutron stars doesn't qualify until we are in chapter 18, when we study these stellar remnants in greater detail.
