Image result for map of the brain

Today, log into Moodle

Use the information from the Nervous System unit and the internet, and your textbook, to answer the following 2 questions in point form:

  1. Rank the following drugs in order of most detrimental to least when considering brain function:

alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine (ice), and fentanyl (under designer drugs).

Briefly explain why you ordered them, with a couple of points for each drug.

2. What part of the brain would you be most concerned about affecting with any of the drugs in Chapter 17. Please explain.

Block 2.4 due Friday May 4th

Science 8 Chapter 7 Test (Density)

Block 1.2 Thurs April 19th

Block 2.1, 2.2 Friday April 20th

Please remember: there will be a “layering” question.

In the Density Mystery experiment you did (p 266 and 267) you had to predict, and then measure, the density of 9 items. Layering them meant putting the item most dense, at the bottom, the least dense, to the top. Watch the youtube video to help you out with the concept of Density!!!
