Three keys  learned about exponents is that exponents are just repeated multiplication in shorter terms. If there are two exponents with the same base you can add the exponents together. If there is an exponent then brackets then another exponent than you can multiply the exponents together.

Element cube

1. My questions were from the outline that ms Jackson had given us. I had to research the history of the element (ex. Who discovered it, who named it etc.) features and properties (ex. Colour, state at room temp. And common uses etc.) and the symbol (atomic number,average atomic mass etc.).

2. Before starting my research I used any information I had previously known befor staring this project (ex. Worksheets, and information we had learned through out the unit). After filling in my known information I started my research. My most used search engine was google but I had also used Bing, YouTube  and other search engines to find different information.

3.  I kept the rubric on front of me at all times and would research the questions. I would read the whole article then write down the information i found in my own words (I don’t usually work in point form), after writing my own three paragraphs on paper I imported it to my device where i had typed on a digital outline of the cube.

4. I would only take note of information that resources had agreed on, to help insure that the information was valid. I would also read the page befor taking note in case there were hints of invalid information.

5. I probably could have used more resources and gotten more pictures and models too support my information.

Science 9 periodic table

The periodic table is ordered by atomic number, which tells us how many protons and electrons are in each element. Families and periods, the vertical an horizontal organizational system of metals , non-metals, and metalloids. Families will have the same number of electrons in there valence shell. Periods go up one atomic number when to the right. Every element from the family 1 till the metalloids stair case (13,32,50,84) are metals except hydrogen. (6,15,34,53,86) all right side of the staircase including hydrogen and non-metals. (5,14,32,33,51,52,84,85) the staircase are all the metalloids. Family 18 are the halogens and they always have a full valiant shell, therefor they are not attracted to other elements and are un-reactive. Metals and non metals are attracted to each other because of there wanting to gain or loose valiant electrons (to become ions), therefor they are reactive.


Digital Footprint

1. How might your digital footprint affect your future? A: If one of your friends takes a picture at a party and posts it on there acount that is not private, they might tag you. Now your name is connected to that picture. A couple years later you apply for a university or a job, your potential employer looks you up tries to find any information on you that could potentially make you a bad employee. They find this picture of you from a couple years ago that may not be that bad, but they look at your friends who are also involved in that picture that you may not even be friends with anymore but if they are bad people then you are connected to that person or people and you will not be employed.

2.  Describe at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint safe and appropriate?
Well first of all you shouldn’t be doing anything that would give you a bad name so if you are responsible , everyone will see who you are and hopefully that’s a good person. Also if you have any friends that might be making bad decisions make sure you let them know not to involve you in there image. Just be smart.


3. What info did you learn that you would pass on to others? How would you tell them? I think adults and teachers in particular put to much pressure on kids to be carful with social media. All they tell us is how you do bad stuff on it and how it will take jobs away and represent you. If you want to have a job and want to go to university, you are most likely a good person, And if you don’t do bad things you have nothing to be afraid of. Be friends with good people, Do good things, And your digital footprint will be clean.


science inquiry 9

The video above is to demonstrate a part of my question which is how planets form.

What was the first planet to form, how long was the time line between planets forming, (How does a planet form)?

One thing that’s currently unknown and is in fluent debate is how long it takes for planets to form. Timescales vary between 1 and 10 million years. It is thought that planets formed at the same time but new reader had indicates that a series of shockwaves emitted from our own sun may have caused planets to form at different times ( 4.6 billion years ago). One fact that all sources can agree with is that the sun had formed first. The leftover gas and dust remained in a disk around the sun. In this disk, stuff began to clump and form “planetesimals” which are like small asteroids. Over time they crashed into each other Abdylmyanov’s research, (which models the movements of particles in fluids and gasses which our Sun accreted), indicates that the first series of shockwaves during short but very rapid changes in our solar activity would have created the proto-planetary rings for Uranus, Neptune, and dwarf planet Pluto first. Jupiter, Saturn, and the asteroid belt would have come next. Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars would have formed last. This means that our own planet Earth is one of the youngest in the Solar System.
One thing that’s currently unknown and is in fluent debate is how long it takes for planets to form. Timescales vary between 1 and 10 million years.

The picture above is representing the size scale of the planets, and if you remember from my presentation that the planets formed from the inner planets (smallest) to the outer most planets (largest).
