“…We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

It is for these reasons that I regard the decision last year to shift our efforts in space from low to high gear as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the office of the Presidency…”

President John F. Kennedy visited Rice University campus on September 12, 1962, and delivered a speech in the stadium on the Nation's Space Effort. Kennedy cites scientific progress as evidence that exploration of space is inevitable and argues that the United States should lead the space effort in order to retain a position of leadership on earth. He stated that we explore space not because it is easy but because it is difficult, and that the U.S. should "do it right and do it first before this decade is out," inspiring and engaging the nation in the space race.

Although Kennedy was assassinated the following year, on November 22, 1963, his dream of winning the space race was fulfilled on July 20, 1969, when NASA's Apollo XI mission successfully landed the first men on the moon. As astronaut Neil Armstrong stepped off the Lunar Module, he proclaimed "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." His fellow astronaut Edwin Aldrin Jr. also walked on the moon's surface and the two men gathered 47 pounds of lunar surface material for research purposes.

Lesson 1

Grading:

Grading will be based primarily on a 4-point scale. On this scale, a 3.5 - 4 will translate to Excellence, a 3 will translate to High Effort, a 2 will translate to Effort, a 1 will translate to Motions, and a 0 will translate to Off-Track. Anything that is collected (homework, quizzes, exams, projects, papers, etc…) will have a grade associated with it and at the end of each term your grade will be calculated by using these grades.

Did Nothing (0.0): Off-Track

Be Attentive(1.0):Gather informationMotions 65

-Read the question, draw a picture (Would a visualization be helpful?)

-Rough Draft

-List all relevant information for the assignment

-Outline

-Write out "possible" formats that include the answer in them

Be Critical(3.5):TEST/CHECK your conclusion Excellence 90

- (work / results)

- Verify Result with a second test or others input

- If it does not meet the original standards, fix it

- Reach an incorrect conclusion AND realize it. (Ran out of time to correct…)

-"Re-read" the question Review the “process” Initiate assistance

Be Responsible(4.0): Finalize your resultsExcellence95 - 100

Verified conclusion is correct: Teach someone else what you learned

“Am I responsible for my own learning?”

How have you done these past three weeks?

Off Track: I was not responsible for my own learning.

I did not learn.

I did not do the basic expectations or the assignments:

Motions: Someone else was more responsible for my own learning than I.

Someone taught me.

I did the work assigned, but nothing more. I waited to be told what to do. I did not initiate the learning needed to complete the assignments.

Effort: I was responsible for my own learning.

I taught myself.

I completed the assignments and initiated the learning I needed to do, to complete the assignments.

HI-Effort: I was responsible for my own learning.

I did extra work or “redid” work that I missed or did not understand.

Excellence:

I was responsible for my own learning AND intentionally helped others.

I taught myself and someone else.

I completed the assignments, initiated the learning I needed to do, to complete the assignments. I did extra work or “redid” work that I missed or did not understand.

I sought others out to help them with material

The FOUR P’s

Punctual

Be on time, for class, with assignments, for appointments.

If you are going to miss an appointment or class,

YOU have the responsibility to notify the person in charge of that meeting.

  Off – Track: Not doing it

Motions: Someone else holds me accountable and /or responsible

Effort: I initiate the actions required

Excellence: I do my best and I help others to their best

Prepared

Do your homework: to the best of your ability.

Be prepared to discuss what you DO understand and what you DO NOT understand

Bring the necessary tools for the job, pencils, paper, notebooks etc.

{cleats, helmet, lax stick etc.}

  Off – Track: Not doing it

Motions: Someone else holds me accountable and /or responsible

Effort: I initiate the actions required

Excellence: I do my best and I help others to their best

Positive

Bring an “I can do this” attitude and approach to the meeting,

class, practice etc.

You may have to work harder in some areas than others

{and you may have an advantage over others in another area.}

Off – Track: Not doing it

Motions: Someone else holds me accountable and /or responsible

Effort: I initiate the actions required

Excellence: I do my best and I help others to their best

Participate

Classes and practices are not spectator event;

you are an active participant in the event.

It will be difficult o participate if you have not been able to do the first THREE P’s

Off – Track: Not doing it

Motions: Someone else holds me accountable and /or responsible

Effort: I initiate the actions required

Excellence: I do my best and I help others to their best

Unit ½

DA SI Sig Dig

Lesson 2

  • I don't suppose you happen to know Why the sky is blue? It's because the snow Takes out the white. That leaves it clean For the trees and grass to take out the green.Then pears and bananas start to mellow, And bit by bit they take out the yellow. The sunsets, of course, take out the red And pour it into the ocean bed Or behind the mountains in the west. You take all that out and the rest Couldn't be anything else but blue. Look for yourself. You can see it's true

  • Velocity = distance / time
  • Distance = 2πr = 2π {1.496 X 1011meters}
      • = 9.3996 X 1011 meters
  • Time = 365.26 days
  • = 31.56 X 106 sec
  • Velocity
    • = 9.3996 X 1011 meters / 31.56 X 106 sec
    • = 2.978 3X 104meters / sec
    • [2.9783X 1011 meters / sec] * [3600 sec/hr] *[62 miles/100,000.0 meters]

Nstars= Number of Stars in the Galaxy

Fpl = Fraction of stars that have planets around them

Np = Number of planets “suitable’ for Life to arise

Fl = Fraction of Suitable planets that life

ACTUALLY arises

Fil= Fraction of those planets that life actually arises,

that develops into “intelligent life”
