Please finish the June 2012 practice exam for next class. The 'identifying variables' worksheet that we did today will help you with this.

It is strongly recommended that you check your marks on PowerSchool to ensure that there is not any missing work. Students who have outstanding work have been spoken to in class about this.

'The end-of-year Intermediate Science Exam is a Scientific Literacy Assessment. This NOT a cumulative examination covering the units taught during the year, but an assessment of students’ ability to graph and interpret experimental results, and to read with understanding a text relating to science. It counts for 10% of the final grade in the course.

This exam consists of two parts:
A.Data analysis: a simple experiment is described, results are reported, and students are asked to graph and interpret the results.
B.Case Study: students read an article on a science topic (choosing one of two articles offered) and answer comprehension questions.

This exam is not something you can 'study' in the sense of memorizing information, however, we will be doing several practice case studies next week.

We have been reviewing common vocabulary such as numbers, classroom objects, verbs, and common expressions in the introductory classes of this course. We will begin Unit 1 next week. Textbooks will be remaining in the classroom, however, students will have the option to take their workbooks with them if they would like. So far this year has gotten off to a great start!
