Download file "Friedman Ch 18 review questions.docx"

3/27 To facilitate preparation for the exam, I would like to assemble a review booklet of summaries of each of the first 14 chapters of the text and the accompanying power points. The added information on the power points is material you may well be asked about on the exam. The assignment: Select a chapter that you would like to summarize. The format could be paragraph form or outline form, not bullet points. The summary must be at least 500 words (or the equivalent if you outline). The assignment is due on Monday, 4/8. You can email it or print it. I will then put together the full printed booklet.
Email me your preference of chapter to prepare and I will post it here when I receive it. The point value will be graded out of 50 points, but the real benefit to you and your classmates will be determined by the quality of your work.

I know some of you have other AP exams to take after our exam and then there are senior exams. Are there days that would work for you during that post APES exam period? Let's talk about it in class on Thursday.

Honors Chemistry Fall 2012

1/21 Read section 4.3, p 103 - 111

1/15 Exam note: One section of the exam requires you to write Lewis structures. The term "Electronic Geometry" refers to the general geometry. "Molecular Geometry" refers to specific geometry. As I did on the unit test, I will consider your answer to "Molecular Geometry" as extra credit.

1/13 Exam Notes: Bond angles will not be addressed on the exam; To lessen the need for providing a curve, you will be given a "second chance" option on each multiple choice question. Each question will have two lines next to it (no scantron). If your first answer is wrong, a correct second answer will add 1/4 of a point to your score.
I will be available for review after the second exam on Monday (hopefully, starting at 11:45).

1/8 p 115, #27-30

1/6 Read p 101-107; p115, #17-24

APES Fall 2012

1/21 Chapter 11: multiple choice, FRQ #1 and 2, and MYI are due on Thursday. Submit to Dropbox.

1/21 Here are some discussion questions for the video. I'll start the video at part 2. I'd like you to answer the questions from
parts 2-5 for Wednesday. Submit to dropbox.
Download file "Food, Inc Discussion q's part 2-5 S'13.docx"

1/18 I am attending a breakfast with the new Director of Admissions at UD, so I won't be in class for period 2 and possibly some of period 3. Consequently, I have made arrangements for a showing of the film, "Food, Inc". This film was co-produced by Michael Pollan, who is a prominent writer in the field of food and agriculture. He wrote a best seller called, "The Omnivore's Dilemma", which I highly recommend.
I'd like you to submit part 2 of the chapter 11 review questions (if you haven't already) to Dropbox by Tuesday morning.
Enjoy the rest of your break!

10/29 Power Point Presentation
With the rain days we are experiencing, this might be a good time to work on the power point presentation that was announced on the first day of class. The first order of business is to determine partnerships, if you so choose. Partnerships are not required. No more than two to a group, however. Once you've established the presenters, you will need to select a topic. Anything within the context of environmentalism is ok (energy, endangerment, climate, urban planning, transportation, population projections, etc). The best projects, however, are the most specific. Urban planning, in general, is probably not a great topic, "the development of Gaithersburg, Md as a model for future cities " is better.
The sooner you can arrive at a grouping and a topic the better. Please email your decisions to me when you decide. (They must be submitted by Monday at the latest.) I have to approve the topic. Once I do, I'll post that information here, so that the same topic is not repeated.
Also, the below assignments will all be due on Wednesday.

I'm not sure I was clear about my preference for submission of the summer assignment. I'd like the chapter 1 summary to be submitted to dropbox. I'd like you to bring hard copies of the two current event articles to class on the 24th. I will ask you to present them to the class on that day. The reports should each be about 200 words, including a summary of the article and your reaction to it. Since the value of your report will be lost to the group if you are not prepared to present it on the 24th, there will be a significant penalty for lateness.
Welcome to APES 2012!
I'm very excited about this year's course to which I have made some pretty significant improvements. I have just ordered materials for several new labs that will explore activities such as making ethanol from corn and making biodiesel from waste vegetable oil. For outdoor work, I have also ordered water quality assessment tests and field study equipment.
Most importantly, we will be using a new textbook this year. The book is "Environmental Science for AP" 1st ed, by Andrew Friedland.
It was first published last year, so it is very up to date. The book is available in cloth or as an ebook. The ebook subscription is good for a year and costs a little more than half as much as a the cloth version.
I'd like you to get a textbook asap and start to review the text. Your first assignment will be due by the beginning of our first class. It is to summarize the first chapter (p 1-22). A thorough review would require about 800 - 1000 words in paragraph form, something less in outline form. Either format is fine with me as long as it is complete. This assessment will be graded with a maximum of 30 points.
You will also be required to submit summaries of two current event articles by class time on the 24th.
Please check this blog for updates.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Mr Mulhearn

One final comment: You guys have worked hard all year long. The good scores you will get are well deserved.
Stay confident and remember those last 25 multiple choice questions are no harder than the first 25, but the historical performance has been much worse on the last quarter of the test. Take a short break if you need to, but try to read and understand every word of those last questions.
I wish you all good luck!

Lab on Tuesday
Tuesday's lab will be a soil test. We will test for various nutrients and pH, which affects nutrient uptake by plants.
I'd like to test soil samples that you have brought from home. Results are better for fairly fertile soil, where plants seem to be flourishing. Please try to find a soil sample from your home or nearby to bring in. You will need about a cup (6 oz) of soil. It must be dry for testing so spread your soil out on newspaper and dry it out overnight, then pick out pebbles and twigs.
