Course Resources: Mr. English's New Course Site (students, also check your google classroom)"Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge." Carl Sagan
"Most people say that it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character." Albert Einstein
"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence." Helen Keller
"Be Safe, Work Hard, Have Fun" Mr. EnglishWelcome Students. I will be your guide and mentor in learning science. But your success will depend largely on your own active engagement in the scientific process. How carefully do you make observations?How well do you record your observations and communicate them to others? Are you actively reflecting on the meaning of experiments, looking for patterns, collecting evidence to support (or amend) your beliefs about the world? Read again the quotes above by Carl Sagan, Albert Einstein and Helen Keller. These three great thinkers have summarized what it will mean to be a success in chemistry or physics.
