OCEANOGRAPHY

Assignment - PLEASE READ:
Wednesday (after open-notes freshwater test) & Thursday (all class) - complete the oceanography packet.
To complete the packet, you will need the powerpoint (link above) and a textbook (the old one, not the new one), so plan ahead with that, taking photos of the pages you'll need in case you need to finish some for homework. Please try not to take my textbooks home with you, but if you need one, get permission from the sub, and write your name on the board so I can keep track of who borrows them.
Friday is an open-notes test on oceanography (not open-book or open-chromebook... just open-notes). The sub will give you the first 20 minutes of class to finish up your packet before having you complete the test. You will also turn in your completed Oceanography Packet to be graded when you turn in your test.
