Honors Biology

Honors anatomy students began the skeletal system this week.  We are exposing bones to three substances and recording changes in mass and composition over the next week.  The purpose is to model osteoporosis and apply the data to a case study.

 

Math

Mrs. Hardison spoke at the Tennessee Mathematics Teachers Association Annual Conference this past weekend at UT Martin. She presented her research on “How Frequent Quizzes Effect Students”. Her findings were that frequent quizzes were a good predictor on how well a student would do on a unit assessment.  This presentation was given to area TN Math teachers.
