Students, this is not the webpage for Mr. Collinson's current classes, this is old information put up for other teachers to view.  I only update this file once a year, so it does not contain our information.  Please go through the school webpage to get to our site.

Teachers, I have adapted my student webpage to contain information that you can use.  I cannot post my tests, as students will undoubtedly find them here.


Science Binder. The following is a list of things that you should have in your science binder for this unit.

Weekly Quiz.  We will have a weekly quiz this year, in an attempt to help you keep on top of the learning.  The quiz questions are posted outside of my room, as well as here, approximately 5 days prior to the quiz.

Teachers:  I give a weekly quiz, here is what a copy of what I post for the students.

Quiz #1:

On your quiz you will be asked to explain what an independent variable is, what a dependant variable is and what constant conditions are. You are also to provide an example.


Assignments.  These are the assignments that have been assigned for this unit. If there is no due date set, you will not submit it, simply complete it and have it in your binder.

Note:  Dates that assignments were assigned are approximate, as I teach four classes, and not on the same day.

Science Title Page

Assigned: Sept ___

Due: With Binder

You are required to make a title page for the front of your binder.  The page must have the word "Science" on it, it must have a definition of science and it must include at least four images that relate to science.
Bouncing a Ball

Assigned: Sept ___

Due: Next Class

This experiment was performed in class according to the experiment sheet.  Once experimentation is complete it is your job to have the experiment sheet fully complete as well as a graph showing your results.  If you do not have graph paper please ask me in class.  After everyone is complete, we looked at the exemplars, to compare your work.
Safety Scavenger Hunt

Assigned: Sept ___

This was an assignment performed in class.  You were to use the handout and search for the missing words, which were hidden around the class room.  If you were not able to get all the answers as we took them up in class, you may get the answers here.
