G7 Week 09 – S2

Friday, April 13th

F & G period: In today’s lesson students were asked to continue working in their Seed Germination Method documents (Google Docs). The focus of today’s lesson was not only on how to improve the content and formatting of the “Results” section, but also to begin work on the fourth and final “Discussion” section. For this final section, Dr. Merritt inserted (pasted) a series of questions into each each students’ document to guide their work.

Homework: F & G period students should try to complete the fourth (and final!) “Discussion” section of the seed germination report. This is the section that Dr. Merritt inserted (pasted) into the end of your Google Document in Thursday’s science class. It consists of a series of bulleted questions to answer in complete sentences.

A period: In today’s lesson students were asked to continue working in their Seed Germination Method documents (Google Docs). The focus of today’s lesson was not only on how to improve the quality of the captions required below each table (claim > evidence), but also on the fourth and final “Discussion” section. For the discussion section, Dr. Merritt inserted (pasted) a series of questions into each each students’ document to guide the work.

Homework: A period students should try to complete the fourth (and final!) “Discussion” section of the seed germination report.

It consists of a series of bulleted questions to answer in complete sentences.

F & G period: In today’s lesson students were asked to continue working in their Seed Germination Method document (a Google Doc). The focus of today’s lesson was how to correctly number, title, and caption each of the data tables put into the “Results” section.

Monday, April 9th

Today in science: Upon return from vacation, students were asked to go straight back into their Seed Germination Method document (a Google Doc) first created before the vacation. In this document, we did the following:

1) Revise the “Materials” section to reflect the germination experiment as it was actually performed before the vacation.

2) Revise the “Procedure” section to reflect the germination experiment as it was actually performed before the vacation.

3) Add the term “Method” to the top of the document and format it properly (centered, 14-18 pt., bold) and be sure that all other text size in the document is 12 pt. font.

4) Add the term “Results” to the bottom of the document and format it properly (centered, 14-18 pt., bold) and write the following sentences in 12 pt. font below it.

1st Generation Seeds
Back on 13 November 2017, the class germination success rate of the 1st generation Brassica rapa seeds was approximately 100%.

2nd Generation Seeds
Back on 19-23 March 2018, the germination success rate of my 2nd generation Brassica rapa seeds was ______%. The raw data and observations from my experiment are presented below.

Homework: Spend 20 minutes of time at home working on any of the (above) tasks that you did not have time to complete during today’s science class.
