G7 Week 16

Friday, January 12th

Today in science: Students continued processing their seeds pods today. After reporting their data to Dr. M, who put it into a Google Sheet, students were asked to begin making an X-Y scatterplot graph, which aims to show if there is a relationship between (on the one hand) the total number of seed pods produced by Brassica rapa plants and (on the other hand) the total number of seeds produced. For those looking for a good title for this new graph, you might consider the following title:

A scatterplot showing the relationship between the total number of Brassica rapa seed pods and seeds produced by ___ period TASIS science students (January 2018)

Homework: All students have been asked to complete their Power Plant Packet by Monday, January 15th. When completing the written descriptions on pages 24-30, students should be sure to include information (words, phrases, etc.) from pages 1-23 of the packet.

Thursday, January 11th

A period: Students continued processing their seeds pods today. After reporting their data to Dr. M, who put it into a Google Sheet, students were asked to begin making an X-Y scatterplot graph, which aims to show

F & G period: Students continued processing their seeds pods today. This meant that they had to open all of their mature seeds pods and collect the seeds found inside. Each student was responsible for collecting and counting their seeds and sharing this data with their classmates. All of the personal and class data had to be recorded in the Lab Notebook.

Homework: All students have been asked to push their Power Plant Packet closer towards completion by working on it for 20 minutes at home. It was mentioned at the start of today’s class that students should be including information (words, phrases, etc.) from pages 1-23 of the packet when completing the written descriptions on pages 24-30.

Each student was responsible for collecting and counting their seeds and sharing this data with their classmates. All of the personal and class data had to be recorded in the Lab Notebook.

G period: After updating the Table of Contents of their Lab Notebooks, students then prepared new pages in their notebooks for INV #5. Students then began the harvesting process, which involved taking all of the mature seed pods from their plants and putting them into a labelled plastic bag. In the next class, students will count the total number of seeds produced by their plants. This data will be shared with the entire class.
