Oh, I didn't see you there!
So even though we don't get to see each other this week, do not fret! I've got you covered... here are two sets of slides that should satiate your desire for Environmental Science! The first set are my slides, and the second set are the slides from the book (Chapter 2). This way you'll know what the book expects you to know and also what we're going to be doing/what we've done in class!
Please keep in mind that the book requires that we get through the fourth chapter at this point... and we're only on the first chapter. This is going to happen often being that the schedule is constantly interrupted by tests, trips, and anything else that might validate a departure from the school schedule. It's a sad fact of high school... you're going to have to pull your own weight sometimes. And if you're used to doing it more times than not, then you're in an even better situation since this is more reflective of real life.
Also, here... I did you a flavor, I mean favor. I'm going to list all of the things that your brain needs to be aware of before the first benchmark which will probably fall late in October. Yay! more tests! woohoo!
