To Do Over Thanksgiving Break

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving! While it's been a fun two days, time to get to work...

AP Eng. Lit. and Comp. (Mr. Murray) - Finish reading the Life of Pi. The substitute recommended that we do something in our journals, if you want to try and do that.

AP Chemistry (Mr. Mitchell) - Chapter 10 Review Problems: #1-#13 odd, #21, #31, #34

IB World Geography (Mr. Sutton) - Clean up your Section B's if you think you need to, and get to work on that outline (excluded Section E).

AP Calculus BC (Mrs. Li) - I suspect that the recommended problems will be due in the near future, so you may want to do those. Also, it is likely that the Free-Response will be due once we get back.

IB Biology (Mrs. Bidwell) - The micrograph sketches will be due, remember to have 10 labeled sketches, 4 to a page, must be titled and have a scale bar or a magnification. Don't forget that this is a lab: include an introduction, purpose, method, materials. Topic 2 AS are due on December 1.
