Orchard School Bristol Homework Answers

Show my homework

Show My Homework is an online tool for viewing and setting homework, and is used by staff, students and parents/carers.

Each child should receive an information sheet about getting started on Show My Homework, with a pin number for parents to also view what homework is being set.

Students must visit: orchardschool.showmyhomework.co.uk, and login by clicking on the red g+ button and inputting the same email address and password they use for their school Gmail account.

Tip: We advise that your child logs in to their Gmail account in a separate tab before logging in to Show My Homework.

For parents, they need to visit showmyhomework.co.uk/pin and enter their pin code (which you will be able to find on the information sheet sent home with your child).

If you have not received this login information, please contact us at info@osb.school

Did you know that there is a Show My Homework app? You can download it by searching 'Show My Homework' on your phone's app store. 

Supporting with Homework 

If your child is finding homework difficult, encourage them to give it a go even if they don’t think they are getting it right. Making mistakes often leads to better understanding.

If they are getting very upset, tell them to stop. Attempting to carry on will only increase anxiety. Please write a note or email the class teacher to ensure that they can support them with this piece of work.

Skipping homework should not become a regular event. Please be aware that children can be very good at finding excuses that might have been true, yet if you hear the same excuse regularly you may wish to question them!

 PLTW StudentsFAQ -"Did I earn the RIT credit?"

 

Due to the exams being later in the testing week this year, and my immediate plans after the end of the school year, I may not have been able to contact you or your parents directly to inform you that you are eligible for the RIT credit...Don't worry there is still plenty of time.  

 

The RIT PLTW link is http://www.rit.edu/pltw 

 

The simple rules for Eligibility are:

 

1) Passing the PLTW John Jay course with an final year end average of 85 or above (since the computer generates the final average for the report card, an 84 will also be acceptable from me...)

 

2) A 6, 7, 8, or 9 on the Final PLTW Exam 6=C, 7=B, 8 or 9 =A.  I can only speak for myself, but I put the PLTW score of 1-9 on the report card as the student's final exam score.

 

So, look at your report card.  If the final average is 84 or above, and the final exam score is 6, 7, 8, or 9, then you are eligible for the credit.

 

I ALWAYS recommend getting the college credit.  It is $225 for 3 credits.  Community colleges are even much more expensive.  Most students who I have talked to have been able to use the RIT credit they received, much like DCC english or AP's from JJ. DO IT!  Many colleges and universities will allow them as transfer elective credits, at a minimum.

  

This is a link to the form to fill out and submit to RIT.

 PLTW POE CEA RESULTS!

Great job!  One grade of 9 in each class and TEN grades of 8! Also 60% getting 6 or above, which beats the last two years of 56% and 50%.

 

PHYSICS Regents Final Exams- 2016

 

The results are in!  Most teachers felt their students results were a little lower than expected.  I would agree, but I still found the test very fair.  I predicted an average grade for my students of 77.6 and that actual was 74.9.  That's 2.7 points lower.  It turns out that my juniors average score was only 0.08 points below my predicted, and my seniors were almost 4 points below my predicted average.

Congratulations to students that earn the Herman bonus for doing well above expected: Juniors-Britney Guzman, Stephen LeGare, and Gage Link. And Seniors - Dan Gisolfi, Andrew LoPrete, and Nico Zachman.

 

 

 

 

 

 

FINAL EXAM NOTES FOR JUNE 2015 

 

 

CEA and POE Results 2015- I may make a "prettier" chart like the ones found below, but for now, a simple graphic to convey how everyone did as a whole.  I was very pleased overall with the results.  The % of students with 6 and above went from about 50% last year to about 58% this year.  And remember, nationally, only about 38% of the students get a 6 or above.

Letters of results went out to everyone, so you should have gotten it already.  If not, then send me an email.

 

PHYSICS RESULTS

Okay, the results are in! At first look, they are a strange set of numbers, but overall, not too bad.  The strangest thing is the lack of high scores.  I predicted 8 scores above 85 and there was only one.  I predicted a median score of 79 and it was 78 (close). 16 of 37 tests were in the 4 points of prediction...a touch less than half.  I predicted a mean of 76.9 and it was 74.5...this is the strange part. It is as if someone took the bell shaped curve of grades and squished it from the high side.

 

However, a very enjoyable year all around.  Two classes, two very different "personalities", one very rewarding year for me.  ENJOY.

I will be monitoring the school tools grade book to see if the results are in.  For those who did well enough above Herman expectations, I should be able to add the offered point bonus to your 4th quarter grade from here.  Just keep an eye on it when your report card comes in.

 

 

 

 

HOW I SPENT MY SUMMER VACATION (2015)

I had the opportunity to go to a NASA sponsored education workshop from Jun 22 -26 at the Wallops Island Launch Center in Virgnia.  I kept my first blog of the activities going on, including the rocket launch on the Thursday.

 

The blog address is www.hermanwallops.travellerspoint.com

 

I also kept a blog of my 3-week summer bike adventure, if you are so inclined to see what teachers (at least this teacher) does outside of class, check out my blog.

ALL TEST RESULTS IN FOR 2014...Mr. Herman is Happy ...good year end results overall. 

 

END OF YEAR 2013 Info-(ALL RESULTS IN 6/18)

I will make this the place to get instant info on your end of year performance on exams. Keep and eye out on updated information:

 

PLTW Results

 

PHYSICS Results 2013 -

Test grades are all in!  Results are below.

 

One last lesson to anyone reading....

10 nanoseconds = 1 x 10^-8 seconds, but the ORDER OF MAGNITUDE of the 10 nanoseconds is -8.  So, since the question asked "What is the ORDER OF MAGNITUDE?"  The only acceptable answers were -8 or 10^-8.  If you said 1 x 10^-8, you did not get the credit.

 

What is the highest possible grade on a regents exam?....100

What is the order of magnitude of the highest possible grade on a regents exam?....2

 

100 would not be a correct answer to the second question.

 

PLTW Overall Results 2013 and 2014(updated 6/18/14)

 

 The chart below shows the resulting Stanine scores for both CEA and POE.  The green is the expected national distribution of scores and the X's are the scores of the JJ PLTW CEA POE students.  Good Job in being well above the national average!  19 of 35 (54%) earned 6 or more, thus reaching RIT Credit Level.  PLTW expects only 40% to reach this level.  (Remember, RIT Credit is available to students who averaged 85 and above for all 4 quarters AND got a 6 or above on Online Test.)

The first chart shows all the grades, so that you can see where you stand in the class.

The next tables are comparing predicted scores vs actual scores.  Everybody with green is getting that number added to their 4th quarter grades.  Thank you, and enjoy.  Congrats to Steve Bristol, Robert Conca, and Nick Lema for gaining the most points over their predicted scores.
