Happy 2nd Quarter. 

We all start fresh with a chance to reflect on what we could do better and give effort into improving ourselves. 
Today: Students took a 10 question clicker quiz about graphing. The needed a score of 6 or better to pass the quiz.  Remember, if you do not pass a clicker quiz you can always retake it to improve your grade!  After the quiz, we began to read about Lab P5: Sinking Cartons.  We will complete the lab tomorrow.

Homework: None

Scientist of the Week will be assigned Friday!

Have a Great Day!
