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 2 Graphics or Illustrations in the shape of a couple of layered Graduated Cylinders or Beakers - one labeled 'If Water were like most substances' and the other labeled 'Water's Density Anomaly'
2) Read factually-dense information below each graphic
3) Write a select phrase in the correctly matched layers above using two Phrase Banks, each comprised of six phrases (i.e. Student will write a total of 12 phrases)
4) Calculate Celsius to Kelvin and Fahrenheit conversions in a Data Table for Ice and Water at 6 Temperatures
5) Fill-in a total of 12 cells in 1 Data Table
6) Answer 10 Multiple-choice questions based on their Calculations & Observations in the preceding Data Table & Graphic/Illustrations
7) Discover how most substances' Density typically behaves or changes with Temperature and Phase
8) Discover that Water exhibits a Density Anomaly or Inversion, and that this exception to the rule is essential to life
9) Be compelled to present their work in a neat & orderly format
10) Be trained to understand how Density typically changes with temperature & phase - and how it changes exceptionally with Water 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.
