Log into the Moodle (if you are challenged, use your own Scholars Online userid and password), click on the Natural Science course link, and then on the forum link in session 2, Unit 1. Read any other posted definitions.
Write a short (not more than 200 words) definition of science, based on your own current understanding, to foster our class discussion. If you use terms like "nature" or "observation methods", be sure to explain what you mean by them. Be prepared to use and alter this definition through the year as we discuss different scientific endeavors. Review the Unit 0 guides on avoiding generalizations and be as precise as possible.
Log into the Moodle (if you are challenged, use your own Scholars Online userid and password), click on the mastery exercise for the unit, and attempt the mastery exercise at least once before chat. Bring any questions you have to chat. Then return and attempt the exercise as many times as necessary to achieve an 85% or better score.
Lab Instructions: Observation Skills.
Labs are within two weeks of the discussion section; the extra time should allow you to find equipment or materials. Post your lab results to the class Lab forum, in the appropriate thread.
Take the quiz for this unit. Notice the times the quiz opens and when it closes and be sure that you complete it on time! Remember that you must complete the mastery exercise with a passing score before attempting the quiz.
