Information from Mr Shepherd
I have added a “snow” tab to the OneNote files I use with my S4 class and the Higher class which I have for 2 periods per week. Each tells them what they can do.
The note for the S4 class says:
“You can continue to work on vectors.
Finish the exercise on 3D coordinates and then continue with the following 2 exercises which are on 2D and 3D vectors, adding them etc and then read the section and do the exercise on magnitude of a vector.
If you have questions you can put them on the collaboration space in OneNote.
The note for the Higher class says:
“My plan for Thursday’s lesson was simply to give you more time to do the exercise we started last time – the area between 2 curves.
If you have questions you can post them in the collaboration space.
I will check this page and answer questions.. but I don’t have a textbook at home, so you will need to type or photograph the question for me to see!
Information from Ms Wallace
Higher class has access to one note, and were working on two exercises from the textbook (which each of them have) which they should be continuing with. If they have completed this they should be accessing past papers and attempting questions from them.
N5 additional work set on Edmodo – portfolio completion, and a tweet sent by Mr McGregor.
