Mrs. Nork is at a workshop today.

Period 2 Class:
-Please inform the students that the test is being pushed to Thurs, 4/3. The study questions should be completed for Tues, 4/1
-Students are to work on the scientific notation packet and the study questions. They can skip the Doppler effect section for now…we will address this on Monday.
-Please collect the sci notation packets at the end of class. They will most likely need additional time to complete the study questions

Period 3/4 Class and LAB:
-for Session 3: students are to complete the vocab square puzzle (in plastic bag) and fill out the vocab sheet. The answer key is in the baggie for your reference. Please collect the vocab and have the students paperclip their words back together when completed.
-for session 4- please take the students down to the media center to complete the Doppler Effect web quest. They are to visit my website www.mrsnork.com and click on the link for the Doppler Effect WQ. They should use these sites (on my website): http://archive.ncsa.illinois.edu/Cyberia/Bima/doppler.html (for questions # 1-9) and http://webphysics.davidson.edu/Applets/Applets.html (for questions #10-20).

Period 6 Class:
-students are to work on the Doppler Effect Math Problems sheet and their study questions for the test.
