Radiation and the Human Body Powerpoint and Notes – Friday 5/24/13
Parts of a Nuclear Reactor Continued
Parts of a Nuclear Power Plant – Wednesday 5/22/13 and Thursday 5/23/13
After finishing up part#6 of the TMI video we will be completing rotations at the lab stations to gather the necessary information to complete the following note sheet.
Each lab station will have a folder containing an information sheet about one single nuclear powerpoint component. We will complete 3 minute rotations. What you do not get on Weds, you will get on Thurs.
TMI Movie Continued – Monday and Tuesday 5/20 and 5/21
Monday and Tuesday we will continue to watch the TMI video. Remember that the questions which go along with each part are fair game come test time.
TMI VIDEO SECTIONS
If you are absent you can view the sections on youtube very simply by typing in “Meltdown at Three Mile Island”. There are 6 different parts so find the videos which correspond.
The following notesheet goes along with each section so pay attention when viewing the material.
TMI Documentary and How a Nuclear Power Plant Works Friday 5/17/13
Today we took a look at how a nuclear powerplant works. We kept it rather basic and simple but will get into more depth at a later date. I just wanted you to be a bit familiar with some of the terminology when viewing the TMI video sections.
Nuclear Fission-Fusion – We are focusing on the breakdown of U235 using nuclear fission.
Nuclear Disasters Webhunt – DUE MONDAY 5/20/13
Below you will find the nuclear disasters webhunt. This is to be started upon completion of the Science Benchmark. The large majority of you will be completed with the benchmark on Weds, so this means that you will have the whole period on Thursday to work on this web hunt. Below is a copy of the sheet and a list of resource websites.

QUIZ – FRIDAY 4-26-13
We will be having a quiz on everything in your binder thus far (Pressure-Buoyancy)
Please note that the buoyancy material will be covered Weds and Thursday so do not be alarmed if you are reading this and do not have this material – You will receive it in class and we will go over it.
If you are going to be absent – the note sheets are available for you on this site. The absolute best study guide is your binder. All of the quiz questions are from your note sheets.
