Chemistry 1 – We continued to practice using Energy Bar Graphs to model situations of temperature and state changes in a system. Since I felt most students and groups were “getting it” we didn’t do regular board presentations or meeting. Instead I used a “Whiteboard Peer Review” technique to go over the boards.
Physics 1 – Groups finished taking data on the friction of their shoes. They then graphed it and whiteboarded it. For now most groups used Mass as the independent variable because that was the easiest to measure. We will deal with the issue of Normal Force tomorrow.
Chemistry 2 – Groups presented their findings on Organic Functional Groups. Follow this link to see the Wiki the class put together.
