Great Job Everyone- on the Waihe'e Stream Observation and Data Analysis. That lab write-up will be a part of second quarter grade since I have some students who still need to take the test.
We will be working in class to design follow-up investigations based on the observations from the first field day that you would like to explore further. The field day for those student-led inquiry investigations will be on November 4 and 5.

Homework for APPLIED MATH:
go to one of the following articles. The first one is less challenging reading level and the second is more advanced:
(1) "Energy in Hawai'i" (see below)
Read article. Highlight important information for main notes section of Cornell Notes Page. Use outline, mapping, charting or diagramming strategies to complete MAIN NOTES section ONLY. We will complete Cue section and Summary section together in class.

Using the Handout : "Activity #2- Wind Driven Ocean Circulation" distributed after class with the Giant Map, complete the following:
1. Using a red pencil or thin marker, label the equator red (to indicate warming)
2. For each of the four N. Pacific currents on the handout, choose a different color and clor over the arrow on the small map to indicate the direction of water movement for that current.
3. Using the SAME COLOR for each of the four currents, turn the paper over and find then label by shading the current on the larger Pacific Basin map.
4. Below each of the four currents describe the direction of the current, indicating any nearby land masses and if the current is a warming or cooling current.

NO School, Teacher Institute Day.
Homework- Virtual Ocean Current/ Map Assignment (see Wednesday)
NOTE- ALTERNATE ARTICLE for TUESDAY HOMEWORK
Here is an another article you can use for the Note Taking assignment from Tuesday, October 15. Some students found the reading level a bit challenging on the Civil Beat article. If you found it difficult to get the Main Ideas and Key points from the Civil Beat Article, please use this "Energy in Hawaii" article instead. If you already completed the assignment, you DO NOT need to take notes on this article as well.
Due to the opportunity to host the National Geographic map of the Pacific (see slideshow), we will review this homework in Applied Math on Monday, October 21 (Kai) and Tuesday, October 22 ('Aina). Please complete the Main Notes section as assigned for ONE OF the articles.
