1 Class overview ExpectationsExpectations Please refer to the handout Policies and expectations. Google Docs if you do not have an account you should. Please take the time before the next class to set up an account this will allow you to access your work form home if you have internet access. Syllabus – this is a guideline Summer School Policy Laptops: We will be using laptops almost daily, it is a classroom tool each one of you will have an assigned machine You are responsible and accountable for how it is used and its contents. You will use it for your assignments, when instructed to do so. Laptops may not go HOME.

2 What is Earth Science N A NURTURE U R TECHNOLOGY N A NURTURE U R TECHNOLOGY Earthgeu.com

3 Nature vs. Nurture + Technology Yields Change Change is inevitable the question remains: What are the benefits and consequences for our actions and at what cost? Technology Advancements that affect the way we do things Natural the way something is created Its chemical and physical properties Nurture The way something is treated

4 What is Earth Science? 1. Geology Geology 2,Oceanograph,Oceanograph 3.Meterology.Meterology 4. AstronomyAstronomy

5 Assignment What is earth Science? Read ch 1 pgs. 23 Define the following: Geology Meteorology Astronomy Oceanography Define What is Earth Science? Essay

6 Geology The Study of the Earth Rocks erosion Minerals Volcanoes Plate Tectonics States of Matter Fossils Carbon dating having been dug up Earthquakes Fault movement

7 Oceanography Waves and Current Physical and Chemical Properties Pollution Study of life that inhabits saline bodies of water

8 Meteorology study of phenomena in the atmosphere Weather Prediction Air that surrounds the Planet Storms Climate Change Air Current Patterns

9 Astronomy the law of stars and planets Moon Phases Planets Shuttle Missions SpaceExploration

10 Standardizing the field of Science Research Scientific Method/Inquiry Measurements and Units – English vs. Metric – Conversions – Definitions Lab Safety

11 Scientific Method Identify a problem Research the problem Make a Hypothesis Attempt to explain Why this is the prediction of what and ]or why you expect something to happen Test the hypothesis Independent Variable the factor or condition being tested Dependant Variable the factor or condition that will change if the independent variable is changed Control factors of conditions that do not change during an eperiment. Make Observations and Record Data – Tables, Graphs, Charts Draw a conclusion. Analysis of the Data Arrive at a Conclusion Report the results (Lab Report)

12 Choosing the right tools Measurement – Length measure of distance 2 dimentional Tool- ruler – Weight/Mass- Measure of gravitational force on an object Tool -Scale – Area/Volume – the amount of surface area with in a boundary (container) 3 dimentional – Time duration between 2 events – Temperature the average vibration of the particles the make up a material

13 Density Measure of the amount of mater that occupies a given space. mass Density = Volume Unit = g/mL Or g/cm3

14 Units of Measure and conversions Standard (metric) – Kelvin (celcius +273 deg) – Grams – Liters – meters English – Farenheit – Pounds – Ounces – Inches/ feet Standard Units kilo-x 1000 hecto-x 100 deka- x 10 Metric base unit (g, l, etc) deci-x 0.1 centi-x 0.01 milli-x “King Henry Died Monday Drinking Chocolate Milk”

15 Conversions Conversions you should know 1 in = 2.54 cm 1 qt = 946 mL 1 lb = 454 g 1 mile = 5280 ft Do NOT forget your Labels!!!!!!!!! 1 set up the equation – 5 minX_____ = ? Sec 2 List conversion factor – 5 min x 60 sec /1 min= ? Sec 3 Multiply – 5 min x 60 sec /1 min= 300 Sec

16 Lab Safety No Food or Drink Goggles worn when working with glass/liquids/chemical Use caution with liquids to prevent spills Alert the teacher to spills /accidents immediately

17 What is Going ON Here???

18 Chapter 1 Assignments Define the following Astronomy Biosphere Geology Asterosphere Hydrosphere Lithosphere Meteorology Oceanography Control Dependant Variable Independent Variable SI unit Scientific notation Law Theory Definitions Essays: – Collins Writing see FCA’s – These should be typed (be sure to use double spacing no larger than size 14. What is Earth Science? Technology Work packet – Conversions – Lab safety – How to read measurements – Density sheet Labs: Skittles and Density – Make sure to include the lab Worksheet which lists Problem, materials, procedure, and recorded data – Read and follow all directions – Results Should be typed!!! State the question, and answer appropriaely to the best of your ability Quizzes
