In this unit, we'll explore the different types of nuclear radiation and the concept of decay. We'll finish the chapter by discussing the design and concepts of nuclear reactors and weapons.
Until we return to school, all work and progress logs will be submitted online. Below, you'll find a link to a folder containing copies of the progress log (you'll need to make your own copy) as well as a video showing you how to do it. Remember - don't share the progress log with me until you're ready for it to be graded!

Open the "Practice and Review" folder on schoology and complete the matching Self-Check assignments for the notes above. These short assignments will test to see if you have a basic understanding of the topic. You may earn up to 1.25 points on your progress check if you make a 100. If you're struggling at this point, join the mini-lesson in class!
These self-grading assignments present a wide variety of challenging real-world problems. Complete them to prove your mastery of each topic. Your score on the practice set (PS) determines their worth on your progress log:
Passing = 0.5 points / 90%+ = 1 point / 100% = 1.25 points
Chemhelp reviews are larger practice sets which contain a sampling of easy, medium, and hard questions from each section. They are scored in the same manner as practice sets, above.
You may also complete the reviews on schoology found in the "Practice and Review" folder. These reviews consist of a random set of questions pulled from the test banks and are scored in the same way as practice sets.
