Log into the Moodle (if you are challenged, use your own Scholars Online userid and password), click on the master 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: Simulating Radioactive Decay
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 first complete the Mastery Exercise with a score of 85% or better in order to take the quiz.]
