Physics Test #2 -- 3/14/07
NewtonWe'd like to congratulate the following 16 (19.7%) students for getting a 97 or better on the Physics Chapter 2 test:

Jesse Zhu, Melissa Seehausen, Margaret Macon, Tyler Hinshaw, Katy Llewellyn, Kasey Skinner, Vipul Vachharajani, Avery Wells, Eric Barefoot, Sharon Jiang, Emmanuel Momot, Caroline Stanek, Zak Brown, Jordan Marsh, Rioghnach Robinson, & Will Stamp

These students understood and could name and describe Newton's 3 laws of motion and apply them successfully in various situations. They understood friction and could describe various types as well as ways to reduce them. In addition they could compute "weight" on any planet (in Newtons) and draw, apply, label, and explain vectors of force as they applied to various action diagrams.

Below is a list by science class of those
students (40!) who scored 97 or better:

1st Period
Anna, Jonathan, Abby, Margaret, Melissa, Alex S., David

2nd Period
Justin L., Mitch, Kasey, Vipul, Angela, Rachel W., Hannah Y.

5th Period

Congratulations to These Chemists!
chemistryOn our recent Physical / Chemical Changes Lab there were several students who did an excellent job on their write-ups.

Items that tripped up a number of students were the classifications of red dye and sugar in water. Did these illustrate chemical or physical changes? Actually, both of these two additives to water are recoverable through distillation and therefore both of these changes are actually ... PHYSICAL.

Congratulations to these twelve expert student CHEMISTS who understood the concept of "distillation" :
