The Eye

  Cornea: The transparent front part of the eye that covers the iris, pupil, and anterior chamber. Pupil: Determines how much light is let into the eye. Lens: Focuses the light rays that pass through it in order to create clear images of objects that are positioned at...

Climate change

Air and water Currents Why is this important? Understanding air and water currents are very important to understand global warming and how our earth functions. Air currents moves hot air and cold air around the globe and helps keep the earth warm. But air currents...

Chemical Balincing

Chemical reactions Chemical balancing are very important to chemistry. Three examples of why its important is that it shows that chemistry is like math in its equations, shows that matter needs to be balanced, and that it helps open chemistry to new people. Chemical...

Seeing through Eyes

Here is the docuement Web: (In doc.) & Journal: (in doc) I used these websites and journals because they were a reliable source and added to what I already knew. They also...

physics: concave mirror

Convex mirrors: Convex mirrors reflect light outwards and are not used to focus light. Why its important: it is important to know convex mirrors because we use them in everyday life between driving a car to see oncoming traffic to in a store to spot robberies. Its a...

CLIMATE – ALBEDO

EXPLANATION: For the earth and space section of my culminating assignment, I chose albedo. I chose this learning point because I found it to be the most enduring, and...

Ice Cores in Climate Change

Ice Cores in Climate Change  I chose the idea of ice cores for my enduring learning piece in our Climate Change Unit. Ice cores can tell us so much about the weather year after year. By looking at ice cores we can see warm arctic summers, or frigid ones, along with...

Coral Reef

The Worlds Affect on Coral Reefs The warmer this planet gets the more stress it puts on this planets Coral reefs. Causing coral bleaching and ocean acidification. Coral is very sensitive to changes in the water temperature. If it too high the zooxanthellae they depend...

PHYSICS – MIRROR OPTICS

EXPLANATION: For the physics portion of my culminating assignment, I chose mirrors. I chose this learning point because I found it to be the most important, and...

BIOLOGY – CELL DIVISION

CELL DIVISION HAIKU INTERPHASE, PROPHASE, METAPHASE AND ANAPHASE, ENDS WITH TELOPHASE   EXPLANATION: For the biology portion of my culminating assignment, I chose cell division. I chose this learning point because I found it to be the most important, and most...
