Monday November 18
After our field investigation today, you should have made observations and collected data. Complete the next three sections of Experimental Design, Population Sampling at Waihe'e Stream. (qualitative observations, quantitative observations and sources of error)
These include qualitative observations, data (quantitative observations) and sources of error. Use the link at right to download a clean page. and the transfer the work you already did along with your data from today's field science. You may save it as a Google doc by uploading it or print it out and work on it in paper form. If you choose to do a Google doc, you will need to print a copy for yourself to work on it in class on Wednesday with your field study group. data sheet or attach other pages as necessary
Due Wednesday, November 13
Complete Wind Turbine Design Inquiry Lab Sheet through first side.
Review for next weeks’ science test. Study guide page one ( to be distributed in class on Wednesday). Complete all definitions and fill-in questions on side one of the study guide.
No Science Inquiry Notebook Check this Week.
However, if you have been missing points for not having a bag, or a complete table of contents or not labeling your index properly, this would be a good time to correct those areas.
In your Science Inquiry notebook, under the heading Wind Turbine Design Inquiry- Vocabulary: complete the definitions for each of the listed terms. At the end of the entry, list any resources you consulted.
Some resources to consider are:

Tidal Energy Makes Waves
Read the short article (click link or copy this into your browser: http://hawaii.energy-environment.blogs.civilbeat.com/post/21881616423/tidal-energy-making-waves ) and view the accompanying video. Answer the following questions by sharing a Google doc with Ms. Kaufman.
Please enter “Tidal Energy” in the title of the document and the subject line.
In what ways are the turbines for catching wind similar to those for catching the energy of the tide? Use specific terms for parts of the turbine, wind forces, etc.
What is one benefit of generating energy through tidal movement?
Do you think this technology would be a reasonable source of alternative for Maui? Why or Why not? (your reply should demonstrate an understanding of the pros and cons of tidal energy )
