The extra credit this quarter is different. It requires that you find a current article that relates some new discovery in any branch of science. Then you answer several questions about the discovery. The article must be current (this year). The article must be at least 1000 words long. The discovery must be in the sciences, not in technology. You must turn in the original of the article, along with the answers to the questions. Each article is worth up to 1% extra credit. The articles are due the last day of school each week until the end of the year. I will not accept them early or late. To be eligible you must have all the homework and labs turned in that week.

Here are the questions you need to answer in paragraph form. That is, while writing paragraphs about the article, you need to answer these questions. Do not give me a numbered list of answers.

    1. What was the new discovery?
    2. What branch of science was it in?
    3. Who made this discovery?
    4. Who did they work for?
    5. When was it made?
    6. What experiment did they do to find or prove this?
    7. What equipment did they use?
    8. What is new about this?
    9. How can this information be used?
