8A: EMERGENCY CLOSING ASSIGNMENT
This assignment will require you to have internet access & loose leaf paper. This paper does NOT need to be in your notebook. Follow the steps to complete. Bring your assignment in upon our return to school. STEP 1: Research what exponential growth & exponential decay is. Find complete definitions that makes sense to you! It does not help to have a definition that confuses you. You can watch a video, use a dictionary or even ask a parent. Write these definitions down. STEP 3: On the left hand side of the website, click the word: "THINK." There are 8 questions (some short answer & some multiple choice). Write the question down & answer it on loose leaf. YES, WRITE THE QUESTION DOWN ON YOUR LOOSE LEAF. The link for these questions is as follows: https://ed.ted.com/lessons/howfoldingpapercangetyoutothemoon/review_open#question1 STEP 4: Apply your knowledge! Research 3 different examples of exponential growth & decay. You must have at least 1 example of each (the third example is your choice). Write 35 sentences on each example. How does this example apply to the idea of exponential growth/decay? Explain in your own words. GOOD LUCK & see you when we get back to school :) 
8B: EMERGENCY CLOSING ASSIGNMENT
Read the following article on snow fall & math! Watch the 1 minute clip that can be found in the article. ARTICLE: http://www.wcyb.com/weather/themathbehindsnowforecastingexplained_20160524091532359/14165719 In the article, you learn about the ratio that can be used to calculate snow fall and rain fall equivalencies. Over the past 2 weeks, our country has been slammed with snow  especially the east coast! Research 15 cities across the US that had snowfall since Christmas. Be sure you are using reliable websites. Record the city & snow fall total in INCHES using the chart attached to this post (or recreated on loose leaf). When research is complete, use the ratio of 15 inches of snow to 1 inch of rain to calculate the equivalent amount of rain fall in your 15 cities. You MAY NOT use a calculator  SHOW YOUR WORK & do NOT "accidentally leave at home." GOOD LUCK! See you when we get back :)
