Tuesday, October 9th

Today in science: There was an equipment check (#2) at the start of class. After passing back last week’s (graded) science quiz, Dr. M then spent a little bit of class time explaining his marking scheme to students. Students then calculated their final points and percentage before giving their quiz back to the teacher. We then moved on to main theme for today’s lesson, which was, “scientific drawing technique.” Dr. M introduced students to a scientific drawing technique called “stippling” through the use of a short video (see below). Dr. M then asked students to complete their first stippling exercise, Exercise 1 (3 shades), which Dr. M told students to glue into their lab notebook once completed.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.
