Chemistry 1 – The density lab challenge is this: #1) Pick any 10 items from the table and rank them in order of most dense to least dense. #2) Identify the chemical makeup (specific material type) of the 10 items you measure. GO!
Physics 1 – Groups worked on practice problems involving quantitative motion maps, x vs. t graphs, and v vs. t graphs. From the models they worked to answers questions about distance, displacement, speed and velocity. The robots have given students a great opportunity to work with and be able to interpret graphs, but we haven’t spent much time working with “physics vocabulary.”
Chemistry 2 – Students worked on using and applying the Acid/Base Models we’ve discussed the last couple of days. We practiced categorizing substances based on formula alone (Arrhenius Model), and we also practiced writing and recognizing Acids/Bases/Conjugate Acids/Conjugate Bases (Bronsted-Lowry Model)
