7th Grade Science Teacher Office Hours

Dear students & parents,

We want to welcome you to the CSRMS 7th Grade Science Online Distance Learning Class.

Our three 7th grade science teachers are here to help you with any science course-related needs. Below are the “office hours” for each day. Between 8am-8pm on weekdays, there will be a teacher who is online and ready to help you. Depending on the time of day, please Google call/message or email the teacher who is “on duty”. No matter what team your child was originally on, all 7th graders are taking the same science curriculum, so any 7th grade science teacher can help you.

If you prefer to only speak to your original in-person science teacher, you can message them during the time they are on duty. If you want to speak to your original in-person teacher and it is at a time when they are not online, please email them and they will get back to you within 24 hours.

Thanksgiving Day Meal Dishes Cooked Using Heat Transfers

Thanksgiving Day Meals Cooked with Heat Transfers

  1. Conduction: Thanksgiving Day dishes that were cooked using direct contact with the heated pot, pan, cookware, etc. … in the oven, on a grill or on the stove.

-Pictures of 3 Dishes with 3 Explanations about how they were made using Conduction for your Thanksgiving Day Meal

 Example

 

Sweet Potatoes Casserole is cooked using Conduction when you place the mashed sweet potatoes, butter, pecans and marshmallows into a Pyrex pan and place it inside of the oven to cook.  The conduction happens because of the direct contact of the Oven Tray with the Pyrex and the Casserole.

2) Convection: Thanksgiving Day dishes that were cooked with liquid inside the heated pot, pan, cookware, etc. … in the oven or on the stove. 

-Pictures of 3 Dishes with 3 Explanations about how they were made using Convection for your Thanksgiving Day Meal

Example

Sweet Potatoes Casserole is cooked using Convection when you place the mashed sweet potatoes, butter, pecans and marshmallows into a Pyrex pan and place it inside of the oven to cook.  The convection happens because of the air circulating in the Convection Currents of the Oven’s Fans as it cooks the casserole.

3) Radiation: Thanksgiving Day dishes that were cooked with Electromagnetic Spectrum Radiation (Fire, Light or Microwave) inside of a microwave, on a gas stove burner or inside the oven. 

-Pictures of 3 Dishes with 3 Explanations about how they were made using Radiation for your Thanksgiving Day Meal 

Example

 

Sweet Potatoes Casserole is cooked using Radiation when you place the mashed sweet potatoes, butter, pecans and marshmallows into a Pyrex pan and place it inside of the oven to cook.  The radiation happens because of the heat radiation coils in the oven as the heat radiation bounces off of the oven walls and cooks the casserole.

Energy Unit Do Now Essential Questions

  1. Essential Question: Explain Why Mechanical Waves such as sound waves travel at different speeds in different mediums such as solids, liquids and gases?

Sound Waves travel at different speeds in different mediums such as solids, liquids and gases because of how tightly packed together the particles are or are not in a solid, liquid or gas.

2) Essential Question: Put in Order from fastest to slowest the speed that a Mechanical Wave such as Sound travels through the mediums of solids, liquids and gasses. Explain Why Mechanical Waves such as sound waves travel at different speeds in those mediums.

1st is Solid-Sound travels the fastest in a solid because the particles of a solid are the tightest packed together

2nd is Liquid-Sound travels the second fastest in a liquid because the particles of a liquid are packed together the second tightest

3rd-Gas-Sound travels the slowest in a gas because the particles of a gas are the least packed together and are very loose.

3) Essential Question: Explain what the MAIN difference is between a Mechanical Wave such as a Sound Wave and an Electromagnetic Wave such as a Light Wave.

Mechanical Waves like Sound Waves Need a Medium such as a Solid, Liquid or Gas to Travel On. 

 

Electromagnetic Waves DON’T NEED a Medium such as a Solid, Liquid or Gas to Travel On and can travel in a Vacuum such as Outer Space.  Light from the Sun is an Electromagnetic Wave.

4) Essential Question: Explain which wave has MORE POWER and the HIGHER FREQUENCY.

The Longer the Wavelength = The Lower the Frequency and The Lower the Energy Power of the Wave


The Shorter the Wavelength = The Higher the Frequency and the Higher the Energy Power of the Wave

Scientific Theory vs Scientific Law

  • Scientific theories explain how a natural phenomenon works.
  • Scientific laws describe a natural phenomenon or relationship that always occurs under specific conditions. They can often be represented mathematically and provide no explanation why a phenomenon occurs.
  • Both scientific theories and scientific laws are based on the results of many investigations, are supported by a large amount of evidence, are widely accepted by the majority of scientists in the given field of study, and can be modified as new evidence is discovered.
