Today we are establishing ourselves on Quizzizz. It is an online quiz platform we will be using for some of our studies this year. Click the link below to become a member of the class. Students: please use your student email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Today you will learn the online automatic way to generate a bibliography for your research paper. Whenever submitting work of your own that uses the ideas of other people you MUST cite your sources to give credit to the original people who did the work first. Also, by citing direct evidence and quotations of people in your research you are also borrowing from their credibility. For example: if I said that there are estimated to be more than 200,000 galaxies, each with over 200,000 stars on average that sounds like a pretty big claim for a teacher from Arborg that doesn’t even own a telescope. But if I quoted this fact from Dr. Stephen Hawking as stated in his book A Brief History of the Universe, then it would sound pretty believable. I have borrowed his credibility to support my own research!
Here is a link to a great free bibliography website and a video on how to use it.
here are some more cites that should work too. Sometimes after the first bibliography the website asks you to turn off the ad blocker. If this happens then just use another site for your next citation.
This week we are working on the skill set of induction. To help students please see the video lessons below showing how to complete this assignment. The expectation of these videos is that students may use them to correct their assignments in preparation for the next problem solving quiz.
