What is an Assignment Calendar?   This is an easy to search chronological archive of our unit!  I will post what we did in class, assignments, reminders, announcements and updates as needed.  How does this benefit you?  This is a place where you can go to check out what we did during the day (if you were missing school) and is a place where I will be posting assignments, some extra resources,  or links to blog posts of the assignment.  This post will be very helpful to you if you would like to check on a past resource or assignment if needed!

Student Directed Study

March Mammal Madness is your SDS for the year!

Mr. Price has the best introduction and explanation to what MMM is, read his description below:

March Mammal Madness is a simulated tournament in which you imagine different animal species from around the world coming together to compete against each other for the title of March Mammal Madness Champion. This exciting education and outreach activity is run by a team of scientists led by Professor Katie Hinde from Arizona State University. They use scientific research on the participating species to determine the outcomes of simulated head-to-head competition between different species, which play out in real time on the MMM2018 Twitter account. Since 2013 people from all over the world have tried to predict the winners of this annual tournament – this year >600 educators and 50,000 K-12 students have already signed up to participate. Why don’t you? Head over to the official site of March Mammal Madness 2018 to download and fill in your bracket, then follow the competition on the and by following #MMM2018. Maybe *you* will be the one to predict what species will emerge as champion” from Biotropica

This exemplar is an excellent source to check your formatting and to verify if you are working up to your potential. The student who submitted this paper received an exceptional mark (the student was in grade 11 when this paper was written, therefore I know you are capable of such work).
It is very important that you maintain Academic Integrity while doing research. You MUST give credit to an author when you borrow any of their work (directly or indirectly). See here for proper citing formats required by Mrs. Cooper. I take proper sourcing VERY SERIOUSLY!!! If you do not source your paper properly, I will hand it back, your SDS will sit as an NHI until re-submitted by the date decided upon. Only when your paper has been sourced properly will I mark it and change your mark on HomeLogic.

In my class, we use APA formatting.  This is a very good infographic.  Use it, please!
