Final Grades updated - Some students need to see me

Final Exam, Marking Period 4 and Final Year Grades are updated. Please check PowerSchool.

If you see a 0 or very low grade for the Rockets Project, it means you didn't turn anything in, or didn't turn in the report itself, just the packet. Some of you told me you were emailing me reports, but you never did.

Also, I need to see Mahogany and Pedro from Period 3, ASAP.

If you have something you owe me, see me by Wednesday to get some credit for it. Do NOT come to see me before 9:30 tomorrow or Wednesday though due to testing.

I'll see the seniors at Graduation Practice.

Have a great summer, good luck next year, and keep in touch!

Rocket Project Reminders

The Rocket Project Packet and Report are due at your final. Late work will NOT be accepted.

For the rocket calculations, remember that the horizontal distance to the spotters was 50m and you had the angle from launch day. Using those two numbers you can find the approximate altitude your rocket went.

Hopefully you wrote down which rocket engine you had and all the data you need. Here's a copy of the engine specification chart:

We used the following engines: A8-3 and B6-4. You were supposed to write down which one your rocket had.

Instructions for writing the report are in the project packet.

Information on final exams are listed in multiple posts below this one. Do not wait until the day of the final to ask questions.

Good luck and see you at the final.

Rocket Project - final checklist

Here is the final checklist for the Rockets Project

  • Finish assembly of rocket
  • Install Engine and Recovery Wadding - make sure you note which engine you have 
  • Complete stability testing (separate instructions)
  • Get mass of rocket empty and with engine
  • Get engine data from engine spec sheet (one posted in class, also Google "Estes Rocket Engine Specifications"
  • Start calculations in rocket packet
  • Launch - scheduled for Thursday, May 24th, weather permitting (rain date is Friday, May 25th) If both days rain out, we will do rocket launches during senior finals week (normal school days!) and you can turn in the Report by June 1st. 
  • Final calculations and Analysis after launch
  • Finish REPORT
Do not wait to start the calculations in the packet. I highly recommend that you start the packet AND the REPORT now! It is not short or easy. 

If Launch goes off on schedule, the reports are due at your final exam.

Summary of assignments and schedule

Here are the assignments you have been working on and what is coming up after break.

Make sure you followed the directions carefully for each assignment.

1.  Multimedia Science School Materials and Stress Lesson

2.  Bridges webQuest

3.  Bridge Project


a) Read Engineering Design Process and Manufacturing Engineering -

b) Read the Bridge Project Rules -

c) Look at some other bridge designs and how they will be tested:

d) design your bridge using the knowledge you gained from the bridges webquest and following the rules and requirements. Make sure you have a drawing with 3 views, dimensions and a list of how many of each length pieces you will need.

e) have your design checked by me

f) build your bridge following the tips in the manufacturing reference

g) test the bridges

h) fill out the project report packet (which you will get on testing day)

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Bridge Project Rules/Requirements

The requirements for the bridges you will build are listed below.

You must have a design drawn before you may start construction.

Also, read the Engineering Design Process and Manufacturing Process before starting.

You can read it here:

Rules and Requirements

Students will build model bridges. The bridge that can hold the most weight wins.

Bridges have to be between 250mm and 300mm long and width must be between 50mm and 75mm wide.

The bridges must be less than 100mm high.

The only materials you will have are a knife, working surfaces, ruler, 15 pieces of balsa wood, and glue. The balsa wood pieces are 61 cm long and 4mm square.

You can NOT laminate the wood - in other words, you can NOT have pieces of wood glued together lengthwise to create a larger surface, like a board. See me if you have questions.

You will not have to build any legs or supports - that will be done with books.

Your design should be well thought out. You should have drawing of your design (3 views - side, top, front). 

You should estimate how many different pieces of different size cuts of wood you will need. Cut them out, and start assembling them in different sub-assemblies.

You should also create a template where you can lay the wood on the paper and then glue it.

Go here: to see examples of other bridges and how we will be setting up and testing them.

We will start building the bridges after you have done your research and designed your bridge.

Project Steps:


a) Read Engineering Design Process and Manufacturing Engineering -

b) Read the Bridge Project Rules -

c) Look at some other bridge designs and how they will be tested:

d) design your bridge using the knowledge you gained from the bridges webquest and following the rules and requirements.

e) have your design checked by me

f) build your bridge following the tips in the manufacturing reference

g) test the bridges

Monday, February 13, 2012

Reminder, again, regarding class work

REMEMBER - everyone in the group is working on the assignment at the same time. You do not take turns. You must all be paying attention to the assignment all the time. If you are taking turns, and other members of the group are not paying attention or are talking about other subjects, you will not get full credit for the assignment.

This is nothing new. We have been doing this since the beginning of the year and the rules are the same. You must ALL be paying attention to the software or simulations or research, ALL the time, no matter who is actually controlling the computer.

Friday, February 10, 2012

Bridges Webquest

GG_Bridge_Label_lg.jpeg (38404 bytes)

Before you do the bridge design, building, analysis and testing, you need to learn a little about bridges and bridge design.

Go to this link and follow the directions and links:

You will be going to different websites (click the blue links) and then answering the questions, writing observations, and so forth. Make sure you pay attention to the directions and each student must turn in their own paper.

Stress Computer Assignment

Stress computer assignment

Multimedia Science School (software)
Stretching Materials

Each student submits their own: explain in your own words, what you learned, how did stress and force apply in this, show any and all calculations and answers to questions done during lesson. How can you apply this information to something in your life?

Thursday, February 9, 2012

Midterm grades posted

The grades for the Midterm Exam have been posted on PowerSchool.

There was no curve. The grades ranged from an 11, up to a 93.

I was very pleased with some of your performances and very disappointed with many of you. Many students did not even try to do the problems. This lack of effort is unacceptable, especially from seniors. You should have the self-respect and self-discipline to do your best on everything you do and many of you did not even try.

Also, many of you did not show your work on the exam. I instructed you that you must show your work to get credit. Just writing an answer is not acceptable.

The midterm was made up of past homework, quiz and in-class examples or problems that were very close to those. I only had 2 students come and ask for help before the exams. I was very disappointed in the lack of effort put in by some of you.

Results by Period

Period     High score     Low score

1                 93                33
3                 86                11
4                 82                13
6                 87                14

Some Advice:

1. Always put forth your best effort on everything you do. Don't get lazy. Take pride in your work.

2. Study. You can not learn and understand just by showing up for class. You must do all of the work, you must review your notes and you must study for exams.

3. Ask for help. Only 2 students out of 90 came for help the week before exams, yet a large number of students failed the exam. I am here after school everyday. Come and ask for help. There are help resources on the class site and on this blog site (see the right side menu).

I'm hoping to see more effort on your next quiz and for the rest of the year. Remember, you need to keep working and putting in the effort all the way to the end of the year. College will be even harder.

Google Science Fair - enter and win big prizes

The second annual Google Science Fair is open. Google started the science fair last year and it was a huge success. Students enter their projects and can win some really great prizes. The projects from last year were pretty impressive too.

Students simply register online, get parental consent, do their project site online and then submit the project.

The site has great tips and resources for students and educators. There are three age categories 13-14, 15-16 and 17-18 and prizes in each category. The one grand prize includes a trip to the Galapagos, a $50,000 scholarship, and a hands on experience at either Lego, CERN or Google. Other prizes include $25,000 scholarships, Chromebooks and Chromebook kits for their classroom, intern experiences and much more.

This is a great way for students to work through a science project and have it viewed internationally and have the chance to win some great prizes.

For more information or to get started, go to the Google Science Fair site. 

Doodle 4 Google - be creative and win a scholarship

Doodle 4 Google

Google is once again hosting a Doodle 4 Google contest for K-12 students in the US. Students create a doodle of the Google logo based on this years topic "If I could travel in time, I'd visit...". The winner gets their design on the Google homepage and gets a $30,000 college scholarship along with a $50,000 technology grant for their school.

The theme, "If I could travel in time, I'd visit..." could mean visiting past, present, or future setting. Last year's contest had over 100,000 entries, so competition is fierce. There will be one winner per state and then from those 50 State winners, the 5 National Finalists and the National winner will be chosen.

This year the winning Doodle will also appear on a special edition Crayola 64 crayon box!!

To enter, you just need to submit your artwork by March 20th with a signed and completed entry form. 

There will be some celebrity judges along with the Google employee judges. They will determine the State finalists. On May 2nd, the State finalists will be up for public vote.

Being a finalist is pretty cool and all 50 state finalists will get flown to New York city for the national awards ceremony on May 17th. The winning Doodle will appear on May 18th and all of the 50 state winning doodles will be displayed at the New York Public Library.

Complete rules, prizes, and registration information is available at the Doodle 4 Google site.
