Teacher Bio Curriculum Homework

Mr. Scott​

​I am a 6th grade Physical Science teacher in my 12th year of teaching math and sciences. I graduated from the University of St. Thomas, but grew up in Rapid City, South Dakota. I have resided in Minnesota for 25 years. I am married and have two children. I've taught at MIMS for 5 years. I have found that the students and parents here are amazing!  I look forward to working with your children in the 2017-2018 school year.

The sixth grade curriculum focuses on the physical sciences, including the study of topics related to physics and chemistry. The properties of matter, physical and chemical changes of matter, forces, motion, energy, and energy transfer are introduced. As a part of this course, students will also have an opportunity to apply their knowledge regarding physics concepts to one or more engineering design projects.

The current standards we are working on are listed below and the rubrics involved in Unit IV are attached. Differentiate between kinetic and potential energy and analyze situations where kinetic energy is converted to potential energy and vice versa. Trace the changes of energy forms, including thermal, electrical, chemical, mechanical, or others as energy is used in devices. For example: A bicycle, light bulb or automobile. Describe how heat energy is transferred in conduction, convection and radiation.
