If the project is creative, then you have to be creative in your presentation. You might create a metaphor of a seed growing into a tree, and display charts that show the growth of the main characters. Well, I am not familiar with the book, but I can surely pull together a creative project and sell it. It is done with brain storming and organizing thoughts. Another metaphor could be of birth, the womb,and then the growth, and then the birth out into the world. But maybe that would be too much for your class. To be creative, some things are charts, portfolios, games, agree/disagree discussion sheets, breaking the class into groups, hand outs, power point programs, using the overhead projector, acting very excited, then, writing a quiz and testing them on what they learned. Then, you thank them and leave the stage. Color is considered creative. If it is just a short project, no sweat, just find the passages and make your song or poem or charts or clay figures or illustrative metaphor and have some fun showing your creativity. Look at the class for eye contact, smile, and bring out the main points. The idea probably is that your presentation will take the place of their having to read it. How fun. Go for the old R & D, and dress up too. It is good for a high grade and shows professionalism, so the class will respond as if to a grown up and not a young person.

No. You don’t have to take physics. Take an advanced course, but it doesn’t have to be physics.

Inverse Square Law—
The brightness of an object decreases dramatically as we move farther from the source. The result is due to a larger “sphere” of influence. Light from a source like a star shines in all directions, to the area of illumination increases with increasing distance so the total brightness thins out.

Well, that’s the way i know, having to do with magnification and stuff.

Question by abdullah a: What always changes during transmutation of an atom?
What always changes during transmutation of an atom?

a) the number of electrons
b) the number of energy levels
c) the number of protons and neutrons
d) the mass number

Best answer:

Answer by Helmut
c) the number of protons and neutrons

Technically, transmutation only involves a change in the number of protons, but this is usually accompanied by a change in neutrons, as well.

a) could also be considered a correct answer, since the number of electrons will change to balance the change in the number of protons for the neutral atom.
