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 this in a
High-Poverty, Title 1 school
in the Appalachian Mtns.
No Teaching Assistants,
No Remediation Class,
No Test-Prep books or programs.
So what are my kids doing???
Bossy Brocci worksheets
1) Complete the Heating Curve/Graph (Phase Change diagram) for Water by writing in the words 'Melting' & 'Boiling' in the appropriate location
2) Analyze the 1st Data Pattern Table comparing the Latent Heat of Fusion (Enthalpy of Fusion) of water as Ice to 15 other substances:
3) Analyze the 2nd Data Pattern Table comparing the Latent Heat of Vaporization (Enthalpy of Vaporization) of Water and 11 other substances:
4) Use the Data Table on Latent Heat of Fusion and the Equation Q = m(Hfus) [where m is mass] to Calculate the Joules of absorbed heat Q in a 3rd Data Table for 10 grams of melting:
5) Use the Data Table on Latent Heat of Vaporization and the Equation Q = m(Hvap) [where m is mass] to Calculate the Joules of absorbed heat Q in a 4th Data Table for 10 grams of boiling:
6) Draw and Label a pre-scaled Vertical Bar Graph of Total Joules Absorbed from their calculated results in the preceding Q Fusion Data Table
7) Draw and Label a pre-scaled Vertical Bar Graph of Total Joules Absorbed from their calculated results in the preceding Q Vaporization Data Table
8) Answer 21 Multiple-choice questions based on their Calculations & Observations in the preceding Data Tables and Graphs/Charts
9) Calculate & Record in a 5th Data Table Total Joules of Heat Q absorbed for:
10 g of ice warming up from -100 to 0 Celsius
10 g of ice melting
10 g of water warming up from 0 to 100 Celsius
10 g of water boiling
10) Answer 4 Multiple-choice questions directly beneath their Calculations & Observations in that 5th Data Table
11) Answer the Bonus question why a steam burn is worse than a boiling water burn
12) Draw a total of 12 vertical Bar graphs in 2 Charts
13) Fill-in a total of 34 cells in 4 Data Tables or Figures
14) Answer a total of 25 Multiple-choice questions
15) Discover that Ice has a remarkably High Latent Heat of Fusion (Enthalpy of Fusion) - and its implications/importance
16) Discover that Water has a remarkably High Latent Heat of Vaporization (Enthalpy of Vaporization) - and its implications/importance
17) Be compelled to present their work in a neat & orderly format
18) Be trained to define & describe Water's High Latent Heats (Enthalpies) of Fusion & Vaporization and the consequences/importance thereof methodically & systematically
Many of my assessments (Quizzes and Tests) are single-spaced and double-sided.
I do this for multiple but important reasons:
1) I'm a Public School teacher and have a Print Quota or Maximum.
2) My school pays for the number of sheets we print and copy.
3) I don't like spending my life at the printer or in the dreaded copy-room,
wrestling with jammed machines, and stapling untold numbers of sheets together.
4) MOST students prefer being handed 1 or 2 sheets of paper,
instead of having 6 to 10 sheets dropped on their desk.
LESS sheets = LESS intimidation and anxiety
[psychologically, 50 questions on 1 sheet looks like less to do
than 50 questions spread over 4 sheets of paper].
Thus, I went with the "compact economy" car over the spacious, luxurious sedan to save:
So . . . now that you're aware of my "tight" or "compact" quizzes and tests ahead of time,
please reserve any down-grades on product CLARITY
for something such as a step or instruction that you were truly CONFUSED about
- - - NOT the lack of extra spacing and margins (which you knew up front weren't in there)
Afterall . . . it wouldn't be a fair, honest or accurate review
to condemn a car for not being a luxury sedan - - -
when in fact that car is plainly advertised as an economy car.
