Re: tryouts??

Mr_Lund- So, during the two weeks, students study for the tests at the meetings and you can see which students are the most dedicated? What if some students can't come to a lot of the meetings due to other clubs and activities they are in, but really want to be in the club and get good scores on the...

Re: tryouts??

We most definitely have tryouts. As the coach, I have worked hard to try and develop a team that is competitive for our Region, and I do not need nor want dead weight on the team.

Re: Anatomy B/C

Could you guys help explain how a impulse works, with the Na+ and K+ transfer? I don't get it :!: :!: :!: Basically, when a neuron is at resting membrane potential, there is a higher concentration of Na+ ions outside the cell and a higher concentration of K+ ions inside the cell.

Re: tryouts??

We have always incorporate people who sign up, for we just add teams if we need to. The newbies always go to the lowest team, and may get promoted for the state team or next year's A team if they do well enough. What is the minimum number of people you need to add a team? If we have 15 people for o...
