Today in class you were given the results of your practice Explore test as well as your practice placement exam. You were also given the Answer Key for the practice placement exam.

In order to help you better prepare for both the Cumulative Exam and the actual Stevenson placement exam, you are being assigned the following homework over winter break.

In Schoology you will find a review packet covering all of the material we have learned since the beginning of the year. Within this review packet, I have selected 50 problems (they are the circled problems!) for you to complete and turn in on Monday, January 7th when you return from winter break. This packet also contains the solutions to these 50 problems so you will be able to check your answers as you work on them.

Assignment:50 problems in review packet
Due:Monday, January 7th

If you wish to study for your exams beyond the required 50 problems, here are some suggestions for you.

1. Complete any additional problems in the review packet that are similar to the ones you want to work on. The solutions for these problems are also included in the packet. 2. Retake the practice test that we did in class. Since you have the solution key you will be able to check your answers. 3. Specifically work on the problems in the categories that you scored the lowest in based on the test results you were given. For example, if you scored the lowest in the...

Extra Credit Project
12. When you flip a light switch, the light seems to come on almost immediately, giving the impression that the electrons in the wiring move very rapidly.
Part A: In reality, the individual electrons in a wire move very slowly through wires. A typical speed for an electron in a battery circuit is 5.0x10 to the -4th meters per second. How long does it take an electron moving at that speed to travel a wire 1.0 centimeter, or 1.0x10 to the -2nd?
Part B: Electrons move quickly through wires, but electric energy does. It moves at almost the speed of light, 3.0x10 to the 8th meters per second. How long would it take to travel 1.0 centimeters at the speed of light?
Part C: Electrons in an ordinary flashlight can travel a total distance of only several centimeters .suppose the distance an electron can travel in a flashlight circuit is 15 centimeters, or 1.5x10 to the -1st meter. The circumference of the earth is about 4.0x10 to the 7th meters. How many trips around the earth could a pulse of electric energy make at the speed of light in the same time an electron could travel through 15 centimeters of a battery circuit in 5.0x10 to the -4th meters per second?
For part A, the first step is to put (5.0) to the 10th to the -4th. The numerator would be (0.00050) if someone were trying to put 5.0x10 to the -4th in the form it’s supposed to be in. For the second scientific...

...nice. Thankful my mama knows has to keep that awful smell down.
When the day seems long I would lie in my comfortable bed. I was able to go over to one of my cousin’s house which was a cool thing to get away from the house. I would just lie there and pet on the dog’s soft furrier coat. Once that was over back to the home front it was good to see my little brother. I gave him a hug and a rub on his curly soft hair.
While on break the sight of the snow was amazing. Just watching it comes down and hitting the ground was a pretty sight. Then to watch some of the kids out playing making snowmen was a great sight also. What wasn’t a great sight was seeing the news and watching how people were wrecking their cars. After, seeing all that pretty snow the sight is not a good look now it’s dirty looking
Listening to the good music and hearing laughter filled my whole vacation. Watching my family sit down talking and playing cards was great. It was nice seeing everyone getting along was good laughter to my heart. Just having family together over my break bring all the laughter this world can give. ....

...My WinterBreak Phil Fatigato 1-12-11
My winterbreak went by very fast. I was disappointed to come back to school already. But I did enjoy my break! I did many fun things over break. I hung out with friends, went downtown and partied for New Years Eve, and snowboarded at Cascade Mountains and Alpine with friends.
First thing I did over break was hang out with friends. We went Christmas shopping together. We also went to the movies, out to lunch, and drove around. It was fun to be with friends almost every day. We slept over at each other’s house every day. One day at my house then theirs.
Next thing I did was go to downtown Chicago for New Years Eve. We went to Bacci’s pizza for dinner. Then rode the red line back to Millennium Park to see the fireworks. It was cool out that day not cold about 45 degrees. After that, I went home and got the car then went to a friend’s party at his house, partied all night til the morning. Wow I was so tired.
Next thing I did over break was snowboarding at Alpine Mountains and Cascade Mountains. I went with my friends we all drove together. It was so much fun. We snowboarded all day long to make our money’s worth! Then we went to the Olive Garden for dinner. Best memories of winterbreak. I would like to go back again soon.
Overall, my break went very good,...

...Algebra is a way of working with numbers and signs to answer a mathematical problem (a question using numbers)
As a single word, "algebra" can mean[1]:
* Use of letters and symbols to represent values and their relations, especially for solving equations. This is also called "Elementary algebra". Historically, this was the meaning in pure mathematics too, like seen in "fundamental theorem of algebra", but not now.
* In modern pure mathematics,
* a major branch of mathematics which studies relations and operations. It's sometimes called abstract algebra, or "modern algebra" to distinguish it from elementary algebra.
* a mathematical structure as a "linear" ring, is also called "algebra," or sometimes "algebra over a field", to distinguish it from its generalizations.
A variable is a letter or symbol that takes place of a number in Algebra. Common symbols used are a, x, y, θ, and λ. The letters x and y are commonly used, but remember that any other symbols would work just as well.
Variables are used in algebra as placeholders for unknown numbers. If you see "3 + x", don't panic! All this means is that we are adding a number who's value we don't yet know.
Term: A term is a number or a variable or the product of a number and a variable(s).
An expression is two or more terms, with operations...

...Animal Kingdom
The animal kingdom is a taxonomic kingdom composed of multicellular, eukaryotic organisms. Mostly, their body structures become fixed as they develop, yet still some organisms in this kingdom have the ability to undergo metamorphosis. The majority of these organisms are motile, which means they can move on their own and with spontaneity. All animals are heterotrophic, which implies that they depend on other organisms for food. Animals live in places that provide their necessities to survive, called habitats. These basic necessities include food, water, protection from the environment, and appropriate space. In accordance with these necessities, there are a number of survival techniques used by organisms in this kingdom. These techniques can fall within the category of adaptations, which help these organisms adapt to various habitats. This kingdom falls in the domain Eukaryota, and there are nearly 40 different phyla that can be classified under the Kingdom Anamalia. Besides that there are 5 other lower levels in which these organisms can be classified, called class, order, family, genus and species. .
Invertebrates
Invertebrates are apart of the Animal Kingdom and are characterized by their inability to possess or develop a vertebral column. In the world of taxonomy, the word invertebrate is merely a convenient term used to help with this characterization. A great majority of the animal kingdom are invertebrates due to the fact that only 4% of animal...
