Chemistry 1 – Thank you to The Chemist Tom (@ChemistTom) I found a beautiful way to have students organize their whiteboards showing four different models to explain lab results.  Watch as The Chemist Tom explains.  Now Tom and I use a few different terms, but none-the-less its the same idea.

Today students were to put together a whiteboard from lab results that compared mass and volume measurements of different objects.  The first picture above is what I wrote on the front board to guide students in their board making process.  The second picture above shows one of the groups finished product.

Physics 1 – Today small groups worked on some classic research based, misconception inducing constant velocity model problems.  The robots had a day off, which is sad.  But at the same time I have found that students are strugeling to make connections between graphical, pictorial (motion maps), and mathematical models of motion.  So back to paper and pencil.

Chemistry 2 – Students took an end of unit assessment on Gas and Solution Stoichiometry.
