Unit 3

Assignment Matrix: Science


How to Use this Matrix:



Shaded assignments are mandatory



At least
15

assignments must b
e completed by the end of Unit 3



The blank spaces are “student choice” assignments. This means that
you can create an
assignment of your choosing, but you must first submit a Proposal Form and wait for approval
before you begin, so plan carefully and use your time wisely!!!
