Monday, February 24

What we did in class today: We reviewed for the Big Three test which will be given in class next Monday.

What to do if you missed class today: Copy the notes below in a spot in your notebook called “The Big Three Review.” Let Mr. Jamsa know if you have any questions.

THE BIG THREE——————-

Matter Cycles

Matter (ANYTHING with mass or volume; ANY solid, liquid or gas)

Matter moves around – changes form (solid, liquid, gas) – goes through physical and chemical changes.

Matter never created or destroyed – can be used forever

You need to start with matter and then end up again somehow with the same matter – you need to make a CIRCLE.  The matter you started with is used for the same thing at the end.

Energy Flows

Energy (chemical; mechanical; electrical; sound; nuclear; thermal; light)

-Energy changes from one type to another.

As energy changes form, some of it will turn to heat.  And is LOST.  Useless!  Always  

(HINT: If there is movement, that heat will be generated by FRICTION – two surfaces rubbing against each other)

Life Webs/ Interdependence

Life Systems are connected – you affect one, you affect the other.  And you affect yourself.

Describe an event and what happens afterward as a result.  The original act affects others and comes back.
Show how a group action’s impacts each member of the group and a consequence if just one member does something different.

This works with different systems – group of people, members of an ecosystem, a single system like a radio or human body.
