Day 31 – Density Lab Challenge

Wed Oct 16, 2013

2013-10-16 10.33.35

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)
