Catalyst: • Try to read the colors of the ink instead of the words themselves.
Agenda: • Malleable Intelligence • MI Practice • Course Goals • Portfolios
Myth or Fact? • You are born with a certain amount of intelligence, and cannot change how smart you are.
MYTH • You may not know it, but YOUR BRAIN GROWS WITH PRACTICE, just like a muscle.
Myth or Fact? • Humans use less than 10% of their brains.
MYTH • "We are making use of only a small part of our possible mental and physical resources” -Albert Einstein
Myth or Fact? • Your brain is fully developed.
MYTH • You’re brain grows the most during infancy, but undergoes significant growth and restructuring during adolescent years. Read: your brain is changing a lot right now.
Neurons • What are specialized brain cells called?
We are born with ~100,000,000,000 neurons That means there are more cells in your brain than there are people on this planet!!!
The interconnected brain • How does the brain process information?
Neural Networks • The first time two neurons “talk”, they have a slow connection • Repeated “talking” makes connections stronger and grows more connections
Using the same neurons together over and over makes the connection faster, and increases brain size!
Making new Connections • Learning: create new relationships between neurons • Remembering: strengthen the connections between neurons
“Amateurs practice until they get it right. Experts practice until they cannot get it wrong.”
Summary “People are, to a large extent, in charge of their own intelligence. Being smart - and staying smart - is not just a gift, not just a product of their genetic good fortune. It is very much a product of what they put into it.” -Carol S. Dweck

Goals • Before you can really get going, you need to set a high (but achievable) goal for this year: • Grade-Wise • Learning-Wise
Goals What does this mean and why is this important? • Before you can really get going, you need to set a high (but achievable) goal for this year: • Grade-Wise • Learning-Wise
Goals • Take 5-6 minutes to write two (specific) goals for yourself: *1 grade/percentage goal*1 for what you ultimately hope to learn as a result of taking Forensic Science (This will be filed in a portfolio you will take at the end of the school year)
Portfolios & Reminders • Label your graded work folder with your first & last name. • Personalize your portfolio (see example!) • Dossier due Monday • Syllabus/Contract signed due Monday
