**Study Hall: Work on homework, read a book, do something**silently. There is no talking. No exceptions.**Warm-UpNo talking. No questions.**• Take out a sheet of paper (not in notebook) • Explain how you do an experiment? • What are the steps you would need to take? • Explain as best you can.**Classroom News**• The Diagnostic Test. Those who missed it on Thursday, I will hand to you for you to complete at home with no help. Due Thursday. • Any forms still not handed in. • I’m handing out personal notes. • New procedure! Notebooks in crates & handed out.**Class Supplies: DUE TODAY**• Classroom Supplies : • 4 Composition notebooks (1 for each quarter) • Pencils • Individual pencil sharpener • A pair of scissors • Glue sticks**Interactive Notebook**• What is an interactive science notebook? • Any ideas…..? • Video link • Interactive Science Notebook Setup**Interactive Notebook**• Today we are starting our interactive notebook set – up • Please pay close attention • Your notebook will be graded each Friday for the following: • Organization • Information • Neatness**Interactive Notebook**Interactive Notebook Rubric Your notebook is worth 30 points each week. It is your responsibility to make sure your notebook is organized according to what I have told you. It needs to have all of the correct information in the correct place. And the notebook needs to be easy for me to navigate.**Interactive Notebook**• Now, open up your notebook**Interactive Notebooks**• Now write “TABLE OF CONTENTS” on the top of the second page in your notebook on the right side.**Interactive Notebooks**• Turn the Table of Contents page over and count four more pages. • After counting, now write 1 on the upper LEFT side of your notebook, outside the margin**Interactive Notebooks**• On this same page with “1”on it, you will write “Scientific Process” and write the date: 9/3/13**Interactive Notebooks**• Now, go back to the table of contents and write on the FIRST line: 1. Scientific Process**Quick Overview of Notebooks**Very Important: • Teacher notes will be on the LEFT side of the notebook. • Teacher Notes = Lecture notes; this is the information I tell you to copy into your notebook • Maybe it will take you three pages to write your notes but DO NOT add numbers at the top of pages until I tell you to.**Quick Overview of Notebooks**• Very Important: • Student work will be on the RIGHT side of the notebook = station work, student input • The next entry we do, will be TOMORROW when we do our stations. • Each station will start a new page number AND will be added to the table of contents.**Interactive Notebooks**• We write the important information you in our notebooks when instructed. • These notes are what will help you complete the activities on Wednesday and Thursday. • If you finish early, sit quietly or read a book . • DO NOT draw on your notebooks. • Remember, I grade them every FRIDAY and I will pass out a grading rubric tomorrow.**Our First Official Entry!**• Here it comes!**Scientific Process Video**• http://studyjams.scholastic.com/studyjams/jams/science/scientific-inquiry/scientific-methods.htm**Students you will write this on page 1 under the heading**‘Scientific Process’ • Scientific Method Steps and Definitions: • Purpose: State the problem • Research: find out about the topic • Hypothesis: predict the outcome to the problem.**Continue writing notes on the left side**• Experiment: develop a procedure to test the hypothesis • Analysis: record the results of the experiment • Conclusion: compare the hypothesis to the experiment’s conclusion.**Let’s Check for Learning**• Watch this Wright brothers video using the scientific method. • What was the purpose? • What research was done? • What was their hypothesis? • What experiments did they do? • What analysis was done? • What was their conclusion?**Continue writing notes on the left side : Paper Airplanes**• Write “Paper Airplanes Experiment”and underline it. • The next slide has a lot of information….. • You will only be taking notes today, so write all notes thoroughly and completely to help you complete our activities on Wednesday and Thursday**Purpose: How can I make a paper airplane fly farther.**Research: I know that paper airplanes fly better when: they have wing flaps; I use tape; and they have some kind of “nose.” Hypothesis: I think that airplanes with pointed noses will fly farther than ones with square noses Experiment: • Make 2 paper airplanes (one square nose, one pointed) • Throw each plane 10 times. • Measure the distance • Make a graph. Analysis: My graph shows that the plane with the square nose went farther than the pointed nose one. Conclusion:My hypothesis was wrong. I though that the pointed-nose airplane would go farther, but actually, the square-nose one went further.**Continue writing notes on the left sideObservations**• Any information collected with the senses. • Sight • Smell • Taste • Touch • Hearing • Observations Definition: using senses to gather information • Observations can be…..**Continue writing notes on the left sideQuantitative**• Measureable or countable • 3 meters long • 4 marbles • 50 kilograms • 35 degrees Celsius • measuring, or measured by the quantity of something (a length, the number of marbles, a weight, a temperature) • QuaNtitative: N = Numbers**Quantitative Activity**• Think of something quantitative. • Turn and Share with a neighbor. • Now draw a picture of something quantitative on the right side of your interactive notebook and label your picture: Quantitative example. • For example: the flower has 5 petals**Qualitative Observations**• Describable, not measureable • purple flowers • smells like fresh baked cookies • Tastes bitter • red sunset • Definition: describes something that can be observed but not measured.**Qualitative Activity**• Now think back to the picture you drew, describe your picture with a qualitative statement • For example: blue flowers**Inference**• Conclusions or deductions based on observations. Educated guess. • observation + observationinference Remember, how do we observe? Observations can be _________ & _________..... These lead to inferences…… Now it’s your turn……**Inference Practice:**• Observations: • I hear people screaming • I smell popcorn and cotton candy • Hamburgers cost $5.00 each • I see a lot of people in line • Inference = ? • Now, turn and talk with your partner**More Practice**The Case of the Mystery Footprints**Look at these two sets of animal tracks.**List 3 OBSERVATIONS Make an INFERENCE**Now what do you think?**Make 3 OBSERVATIONS Make an INFERENCE**Now what do you think?**Make 3 OBSERVATIONS Make an INFERENCE**BrainPOP—Scientific Method**http://www.brainpop.com/science/scientificinquiry/scientificmethod/
