    WASTE QUEST on THURS 3/2
    What do I study? One of the best ways to determine how much you know is to answer that question yourself. Ask yourself, "What are the key points and themes that I should have understood from this short unit?" This truly is a "quest" and really is not much more than a quiz. I would focus on your vocab, notes, class activities (ask yourself what each activity was trying to show you) and textbook questions. In the link below is a short list of questions that you can also use to assess what you know in addition to the math problems to practice.

    WASTE UNIT TEST - Long Answer on FRIDAY 3/3
    On Friday, you will complete the long answer portion of the waste quest. This will be open notes and will focus on the process of the various waste options (incineration, landfill, MRF-recycling, composting, upcycle, etc.). It would greatly benefit you to have detailed notes on these processes (which you should have already taken in class!).
