Assignments for Thursday April 2nd:
Math:
Today's assignment focuses on the concept of rotations in geometry.

"
Rotationmeans turning around a center: The distance from the center to any point on the shape stays the same. Every point makes a circle around the center

You will use this idea of rotation when playing the game  Alpha Twist. 

Directions:
1.) Go to Alpha Twist
2.) Complete 1 "practice round" to familiarize yourself with the activity
3.) Play a minimum of 5 rounds (not including the practice round), remembering that in order to improve a skill, practicing helps.
4.) Submit your highest score via a screenshot (you may want to open up a new tab each time in case your last round is not your highest score) 
Completion Goal Date: Friday April 3rd
How do I submit this assignment?:
 Take a screenshot of your highest score and submit it to jeff_strogen@etiwanda.org. In the subject line please type "I've completed at least 5 rounds of Alpha Twist and this is my highest round"
 

Science:
Directions:
1.) Read all steps first.
2.) Make a copy of "The Deepest Hole in the World and What We've Learned From It"
3.) Read the questions first so you are familiar with them, and then watch this videoI would suggest turning on the closed caption (CC) at the bottom right corner of the video, as well.
4.) As you watch the video, answer the questions in the Google Sheets you copied.
5.) I love Google Maps!!!!!!!! I typed in the name of this hole and Google Maps knows where it is! If you want to see, click here

just before 10:00 AM. 

Assignments for Friday April 3rd:
Math:
Create a rotating tessellation design. The following two tutorials will guide you through the process.

A few things regarding the details of this assignment:
1.) When you make your tessellation pattern template, it will need to start as a square. As most standard paper is in the form of a rectangle and much larger than you need, you will need to make some adjustments to do this. The second video below, shows you how to do this.
2.) Heavier paper works better than standard paper- index cards work well (just remember that you need to make the index cars into a square to start).
3.) Your design should have at least 8 representations of your rotating tessellation and be in color or detailed pencil design/shading if you want to keep it in black and white.

Completion Goal Date: Friday April 10th (This it not a typographical error. This will take some time to complete so please do not plan on starting this on Thursday evening April 9th. Give yourself time.
How do I submit this assignment?:
 Take a photo of your design and submit it to jeff_strogen@etiwanda.org. In the subject line please type "I have at least 8 representations of my rotating tessellation and it is in color or detailed pencil design/shading"

Science:
This assignment is just as much about the journey as it is the destination, so keep that in mind as you progress through it.

Background Information (this has information that will help you to have success in this assignment):
You will examine two species of Finches that Charles Darwin studied on the island of Daphne Major. The two species are Geospiza fortis (G. fortis for short), which is also called the Medium Ground Finch and Geospiza scandens (G. scandens for short), which is also called the Common Cactus Finch).

You will be asked to distinguish or tell the difference between the two species based on characteristics like song, color, and beak shape. If you find it difficult, you are not alone. This will hopefully help you get an idea why scientists spend so much time making detailed observations about their work. 

Directions:
1.) Open the link Sorting Finch Species and click the "Launch Interactive" tab.
2.) Follow the prompts that guide you through the simulation and take your time. Remember, if you find it difficult to distinguish between the two species, that is understandable. Do the best you can.
3.) Please complete this simulation two times. During the 2nd time you complete the simulation, please take three different screenshots that shows your progress; one towards the beginning, one in the middle, and one at the end. 

Completion Goal Date: Monday April 6th
How do I submit this assignment?: 
Share the required screenshots with Mr. Strogen at jeff_strogen@etiwanda.org

Distance Learning Update: 
We will have a new meeting time beginning on Monday April 6th. We will still meet each weekday but we will be starting at 1:00 to allow a little extra time for lunch, for those needing it. We will be together until 2:00, as a group, and remain on longer for anyone with more specific questions or needs for assistance.

Distance Learning update for the week of 4/13 to 4/17:
We will continue to gather from 1 to 2 each day as a group for meeting time and instruction. After 2:00, students are welcome to stay on for extra help or questions
. Getting access to the meeting will be the same as last week. It can be found in Mrs. Lara's Google Classroom under "Mr. Strogen's Google Meet Link", just prior to the meeting.

Assignments for Monday April 13th:
Math:

Overview: You will have two different options to make geometric solids (three-dimensional figures) starting from, what are called “nets”( two-dimensional figures that, when folded correctly, from the desired geometric solid).


Why are we doing this?: We are doing this as a way to familiarize yourself with some common geometric solids and to better help you understand nets. In addition, it is also a way to express yourself artistically. As we learned from M.C Escher, mathematics and art are not always separate from one another.


Below are your two learning options: 


Option 1

Updated on 4/14: This is an additional resource, showing some of the stages of assembly. 

Materials Needed:

7-14 pieces of paper (heavier paper works better)


A printer (If that is not an option today to print, see if it can be an option in the next day or two. If it is definitely not an option, it might be possible to carefully trace the nets directly from your screen, being careful not to scratch your screen)


Scissors

Clear tape or glue


Colored pencils/markers or highlighters


1.) Visit the website 3D Geometric Shapes and print out the following shapes:

Cube

Cuboid (or rectangular prism)

Triangular Prism

Hexagonal Prism

Tetrahedron (triangular based pyramid)

Square based Pyramid


Hexagonal based Pyramid

 

Note: The website gives you the option to print nets with or without tabs. I would recommend choosing the ones with tabs. I think having tabs makes them easier to assemble. If you choose the PDF option, nets with and without tabs will appear.


2.) Cut out each net. If you have nets with tabs, be sure to include the tabs (not cutting them off)  when you cut, as you will need them later.


3.) Color your nets. It will be much easier to add color to them now when they are flat as opposed to when they are folded into a geometric solid. The only way I think it would work to wait until the end to color is if you applied the color with a brush using watercolor. 


4.) Fold and tape/glue the nets. The is, for many, the most challenging part. I’ve included two videos that allows to you see how someones else folds and scores (creates and indent or crease on the fold line to encourage the fold at that spot) 

For some helpful tips:

I would watch all of video one. This person has a machine that creates the folds but it allows you to see how she manipulates the paper to fold the object.


Go to the 50 second mark of video two. It allows you to see how fold lines are scored to create an indent or crease. This helps to encourage the fold at the correct location. I’m not sure what tool he has to make the score, but you can use a pen to press down on the fold line. Just make sure you use a ruler, as well, like is shown on the video. 



Option 2: 

The instructions for these solids can be found here Note that there are less solids to make but it requires a more complicated assembly process. I have never done this one before but I thought the idea and the final product was brilliant. Plus, I thought the instructions were very good. The person in this video recommends using colored paper. If you don’t have that, you can use white paper and color it yourself.


You can access this from the website above but to save you a step, I’ve included the nets needed for this option here

3D Solids Quick Reference Sheet   

Nets of Solids

Nets of 3D Shapes 


 

Assignments for Wednesday April 15th:

Math:
Overview:
You will make two additional solids from nets.

Directions
:
1.) Visit the website 3D Geometric Shapes and print out the following nets:
Cylinder 
Cone

2.) Cut out each net. If you have nets with tabs, be sure to include the tabs (not cutting them off)  when you cut, as you will need them later.


3.) Color your nets. It will be much easier to add color to them now when they are flat as opposed to when they are folded into a geometric solid. The only way I think it would work to wait until the end to color is if you applied the color with a brush using watercolor. 


4.) Fold and tape/glue the nets. The is, for many, the most challenging part. I’ve included two videos that allows to you see how someones else folds and scores (creates and indent or crease on the fold line to encourage the fold at that spot)  When you finish creating your solids and are looking for a new challenge? Try this: Make a hexaflexagon. This is the companion instructional video to the hexaflexagon video shown during our Google Meet on 4/14.

A couple of things to keep in mind:
For the handout:
 Read through the text carefully as you progress through the game. Avoid rushing through the text just to get to the activity part of the simulations since some of the information you need might be in those windows you might be tempted to skip. 
For Level 1 (transcription) of Protein Synthesis Race: Be patient and kind with yourself realizing that you are learning about how proteins are made and how the game works, itself. You may have to re-do the level multiple times before achieving the goal of 80% or higher.
You will need to save your game at the end and submit a screenshot of your score. You have done this before on the BioMan website. DO NOT use your school or any other email as your user name and DO NOT use your first and last name. Pick something random that you will remember. For your password, do not use a password that you use for anything else. This password can be really simple,  it's just to access your game.

Assignments for Thursday April 23rd:
Math:
Overview: 
You will continue to find the surface area of a different solids by troubleshooting difficulties you likely ran into working on yesterdays assignment. My guess is that, for yesterday's assignment, you when you submitted your responses for any solid that contained a circle (numbers 1,2, and 5) , your response was not considered correct, which must have been frustrating if you kept getting the same answer and were pretty certain it was correct. The issue was that you were likely using a value of 3.14 for Pi and the website you were submitting your responses to, was not. 
Directions:
1.) Go back to the website Surface Area Level 4, #s 1-6  (complete #s 7-10 for extra credit). 

2.) Attempt problems 1 and 2 only, but use the Pi button rather than 3.14. Look for the Pi symbol on the calculator on your phone or one that you access by searching for calculator on your device. For most phones the Pi button does not appear on the traditional calculator shown, but if you turn your phone sideways, a scientific calculator will appear which has the Pi button.

Note: if you are unsure of how to do this, still give it a try and come to today's Google Meet session with your questions/concerns

3.) Complete your steps on paper (directly into your math journal is fine). There are some of you that are submitting screen shots of the answers you have submitted on the website but you are not submitting your work that supports your solutions

Option 2:
River Crossing
This is a classic puzzle that involves getting people, animals, carrots, monsters, robots etc...across a river under certain conditions. Complete at least 2 of the 3 challenges and send a screenshot of your results. 

Option 3:
Shunting Puzzles
Shunting is a term for moving train or tram cars. When this is done in actual train yards, it has to be done as quickly and efficiently as possible to keep the trains on schedule. How fast can you move the cars? Complete at least 3 of the levels and share your results.

Note: 
Your wil need to familiarize yourself with how to move the trams. Just some advice that the red buttons control the red trams and the green buttons, the green trams. Another key thing is the numbered buttons 1 and 2; they alter the track.
