The way I organized my notebook was first getting sheet protectors so all of my papers looked nice and sharp. I then put all the lab material in order, starting with the “Know and Do sheet”, then all of the other material that was needed to attend lab. Most of the time the material would contain, stories or articles, in-class assignments, quizzes done in APR, and diagrams. I found this to be very helpful because in order to get into class I had to make sure that everything that needed to be done was done and I was not cheating myself out of a really important class. Once the weeks started moving a little faster and started getting busier, I noticed that my notebook was very organized and it started with the first lab assignment and worked its way down to the last lab assignment.
After a few weeks, I realized that the material was getting a lot harder and I needed to pay a lot more attention to details, diagrams, and questions that were asked. I studied the material a lot, but still could not retain any of it. A major part of why I could not retain it was not only was I doubting and stressing myself about all the classes I was taking, but there was also a lot going on in my personal and family life during the first few weeks of school. My life was drastically changing and I was very overwhelmed because I still had to attend school while trying to keep a full-time job. Being an 18-year-old, college freshman, I thought I was going to lose my marbles, especially when I ...

... a very big change for me. This class not only taught me about Human Anatomy and Physiology, it taught me how to come out of my comfort zone and talk with people that I have never met, be confident with your answers even if you are wrong because someone else will have the right answer and they will make sure that you have the correct answer before you leave.
The professors and students in this course were very helpful to me, I never had a problem with anyone when I asked them for help and they never belittled me. There was a big age gap between the people that I asked help from and myself which made me know that I could learn a lot more from them than I probably could from someone my own age. Despite the age gap they made me feel very welcome and that is the kind of environment I want to surround myself by because they are helpful to everyone, not just one person.

- Physics Lab Report Statement of the Problem: The problem that was arisen in Problem #5: Motion up an Incline was in reference to a change in acceleration in both an uphill and downhill motion. The question on hand was whether or not the acceleration was the same going uphill as it was downhill or different from each other in both directions. To obtain a secure conclusion this experiment required the use of a frictionless cart, an inclined ramp, motion sensor, meter stick, and assistance of computer programs....

- There are many situations in which one may not consider it “evil” because one did not think he or she did anything wrong; however, it depends on how the victim views the situation. One night, my friends and I decided that we should work on a chemistry lab report together. Someone in my friend’s lab class asked for help, so my friend, Bob, went to go talk to him outside of our hall. One guy in my group suggested that we should lock Bob out, and so we did. Bob did not realize that he was locked out until after he was done speaking with the guy from his lab class.... [tags: English-language films, American films, BDSM]

- Water is a charged or polar molecule (H+ - O- - H+) that is always moving across cell membranes. Scientists theorize that this is possible because it is such a small molecule or because there are special gap or pores that allow water movement through the cell membrane. The predominant direction of water flow is determined by the concentration of the solutes (non-water molecules) inside and outside of the cell. Water molecules will show a new movement from an area of higher water concentration (& lower in solutes) to an area of lower water concentration (& higher in solutes).... [tags: Lab Report]

- Kickstart Learning with Interactive Notebooks Let’s face it: helping your students to stay engaged in class can be difficult. Traditional note taking has often been a long, arduous process for both teachers and students to go through. It’s a monotonous, linear activity that allows for little engagement and even less creativity on the student’s end. With interactive student notebooks, or ISNs, however, all that starts to change. By enabling your students to process your course’s information in their own way while allowing a space for them to let their creativity flow, they’ll become more active learners and ultimately have a better overall class experience....

- Purpose The purpose of this lab was to see firsthand the diffusion of a substance across a selectively permeable membrane. Diffusion is the movement of molecules from an area of high concentration to an area of lower concentration until both concentrations are equal, or as you could more professionally call it, equilibrium. This concept is one that we have been studying in depth currently in Biology class. Procedure We separated into groups of two each, making sure that we had the following materials for the lab: graduated cylinder, plastic sandwich bag, starch solution, twist tie, 500-mL beaker, iodine solution, and a pair of goggles and an apron (for the person handling the iodine solut...
