S: Science 2012

FC: Summit 2 0 1 2 | My 8th Grade Science Experience by Isaac Adegbenro Mrs.Reid period: 3

1: THE MOUNTAIN TEMPLE, WAT ARAT | November 7th | Famous Dead Scientist Summary: During the fall of 2011 we studied famous dead scientists.Mine was Nicholas Copernicus, the scientist who proposed the world was round. He created the stepping stone for new age exploration. words: revolve - to orbit or circumnavigate. rotate - to spin on a single point (usually an axis). astronomy - the study of space and all abjects within it. heliocentric cosmology - displaced the Earth from the center of the universe. polymath - a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas. Questions: Where was Copernicus buried?

2: Atoms and Atomic Structure

3: Summary: During the fall semester we learned about atoms and atomic structures.Atoms are elements and can't be broken down any more. The atomic structure is all the parts of an element including things like Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons. Words: Elements - cannot be broken down any further Subatomic - smaller than an atom Proton - located in the nucleus of an atom, 1 AMU, and is positively charged. Neutron - Located in the nucleus of an atom,1 AMU, and is neutral. Electron - Located in the electron cloud, 1 AMU, and has a negative charge. Do things really touch or are electrons making everything float?

4: Newton's Laws

5: January, 2012 | Summary: At the start semester we learned about Newton's laws. #1. Law of Inertia - An object at rest will stay at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. #2. F=M*A . #3. Action-Reaction - Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Words: Force - a push or pull Inertia - the tendency to resist change in motion. Gravity - The force of attraction between two objects. Motion - Change of position Speed - distance divided by time Questions: Who created Velocity?

6: Seasons, Day/Night, Equinox, and Solstice Walt Whitman

7: Summary: This Semester we learned about seasons, day/night,equinox, and solstices. Seasons are caused by the earths tilt on its axis and revolution around the sun.Day and Night are caused by earth's rotation on its axis. An equinox occurs during the spring and fall when there is exactly 12 hours of day and night. A solstice can only take place during the summer and winter. The Summer Solstice Is the Longest day of the year, while the Winter Solstice is the Shortest day of the year. Words: Rotate - to spin on a single point. Revolve - To circle around another object. Vernal - spring Autumnal - fall Terminator - line separating the light from darkness. Who discovered Solstices?

8: Plate Tectonic Boundaries And Continental drift Walt Whitman

9: Summary: This semester we learned about Plate Tectonic boundaries and continental drift. A plate boundary is where 2 plates meet. There are 3 kinds of boundaries, Convergent, Divergent, and Transform. Convergent collide into each other, Divergent split away from each other' while Transform slide past each other. Continental Drift was introduced by Alfred Wegener who proposed that all the continents were all one large super continent called Pangea. Words: Mid-ocean ridge - a mountain range, under water, caused by plate movement. Sea floor Spreading - Theory that new oceanic crust if formed under water at mid ocean ridges by volcanic activity. Uplift - lifting of land caused by forces within the earth. Fault - a large crack in earths surface were fractured rocks moved past each other. Topographic Maps - maps that use contour line to show the elevations of land. Question: How many ridges are there in the world?

10: Competition of Biotic and Abiotic factors

11: Summary: This Semester we learned about Competition of biotic and abiotic factors. For Example : we learned that animals compete with each other for food, water, shelter, etc. Abiotic and biotic factors together are what make up an ecosystem so animals naturally compete for it. In conclusion, organisms compete not only for these things but for their survival through abiotic and biotic factors. Words: Biotic - living Abiotic - nonliving Organism - anything that is alive/ animate producers - create their own food ecosystem - all the biotic and abiotic factors in an environment What abiotic factor do humans compete the most for in this modern society?

12: Reflection Page

13: This year our science teacher tried something new. We started tracking our work in an interactive notebook. We worked on left side processing and she said it had to be colored. That became a burden because I Hated coloring. To me my best work was when we did I charts on components of the universe. i think this is my best work because I tried my best an it and the page turned out so beautiful. Then I thought maybe coloring wasn't such a bad thing any more. This showed me the I can be very capable when I want to. When we started left side processing with the Interactive Notebook this year we also started using the right side for notes.As I reflected on this year, I think the most Proficient notes i have taken this school year were the STAAR review notes. I had never took so much notes in my earlier school life. It was pleasing to me to know when i looked over my notes and I knew I would be well prepared.

15: The End

17: "I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey work of the stars." Walt Whitman

18: AT THE START of the Rattanakosin or Bangkok period in the late eighteenth century, when the capital was finally settled at Bangkok, an elephant kraal was established in Krabi by order of Chao Phraya Nakorn (Noi), the governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat, which was by then a part of the Thai Kingdom. He sent his vizier, the Phra Palad, to oversee this task, which was to ensure a regular supply of elephants for the larger town. So many followers emigrated in the steps of the Phra Palad that soon Krabi had a large community in three different boroughs: Pakasai, Khlong Pon, and Pak Lao. x | In 1872, King Chulalongkorn graciously elevated these to town status, called Krabi, a word that preserves in its meaning the monkey symbolism of the old standard. The town's first governor was Luang Thep Sena, though it continued a while as a dependency of Nakhon Si Thammarat. This was changed in 1875, when Krabi was raised to a fourth-level town in the old system of Thai government. Administrators then reported directly to the central government in Bangkok, and Krabi's history as a unique entity separated from the other provinces, had begun.
