### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an excerpt from Amazon's popular line of Bossy Brocci Math and Big Science workbooks! [it's pronounced like "Brawsee"]

Printing should be done in Landscape and DOUBLE-SIDED, with the flip being along the 'SHORT' side.

================================================

Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have more than 100

State Tests on their shoulders - and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to

90 minutes to teach their class. But I've been whipping the

State while teaching an average of 110 students per year - and

with only about 38 minutes for science class!

It's a matter of public record:

I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average

of 23 points over a 5-year stretch.

And I'm North Carolina's 2016 Top-Scoring Science Teacher.

I've done it with:

No Teaching Assistants,

No Tutors,

No Remediation Class,

and No Test-Prep books or programs.

So what are my kids learning, doing and using?

Bossy Brocci worksheets.

================================================

Students will:

1) Use a Periodic Table, Textbook or other reference material to Complete a Data Table on the distribution of Metals, Nonmetals and Metalloids in the Periodic Table of Elements - for elements 1 through 100
2) Determine, Calculate and Write the:
Count or Tally
Percent
and
Rounded Whole Degrees in a Circle Graph
3) Fill-in a Total of 11 cells in the 1st Table
4) Graph or record the above Calculations in the Pie Chart (Circle Graph) directly beneath their Data Table
5) Use a Periodic Table, Textbook or other reference material to Complete a Data Table on the distribution of Solids, Liquids, Gases & Synthetics in the Periodic Table of Elements - for elements 1 through 100
6) Determine, Calculate and Write the:
Count or Tally
Percent
and
Rounded Whole Degrees in a Circle Graph
7) Fill-in a Total of 12 cells in the 2nd Table
8) Graph or record the above Calculations in the Pie Chart (Circle Graph) directly beneath their Data Table
9) Complete a Table of Generalized Comparisons between Metals, Nonmetals & Metalloids [ideally done AFTER inquiry through reading/research, experimental or databasing in my Lessons #17 through #23]
10) Compare & Write {solo or w/ class}:
Periodic Table Location
Density
Melting Point & Boiling Point
Luster
Hardness
Rigidity
Malleability
Ductility
Specific Heat
Conductivity
Electronegativity
Valence Electron Behavior
Reacts with ___
and
Other Chemical Reactivity facts
11) Be compelled to present their work in a neat & orderly format
12) Be trained to understand the general characteristics of Metals, Nonmetals and Metalloids methodically & systematically

Printing should be done in Landscape and double-sided, with the flip being along the 'short' side

===============================================

NOTE: As far as GENERALIZING about Metals versus Nonmetals through hands-on inquiry . . . it's overrated and inefficient for mastering Fundamental science knowledge (says the Science Teacher in me), and it's often erroneous or illegitimate in its powers of generalization or conclusion (says the Organic Chemist in me). Testing a sample of aluminum or copper for electrical conductivity, versus a sample of cork or rubber does NOT prove that Metals are better conductors than NONmetals!

Our students can't make viable conclusions or generalizations based on "experiments" that lack repetition (depth), and adequate sample size or diversity (breadth).

Generalizations are the foundations of good Science - and they are predicated on a heaping pile of inductive evidence.

Thus, my approach is to enable students to draw accurate conclusions and make legitimate generalizations - by using ALL the data from ALL the elements. It's still inquiry, just legitimate & accurate statistical inquiry.

I've already done the tedious sorting and counting.

Your students will now calculate the fully-representative Percent distributions.

Your students still discover or reveal evidence and trends about Metals and Nonmetals.

Your students can now draw the accurate conclusions and make the legitimate generalizations that good Science is built upon.

And you just saved yourself a lot of time and headache!
