Last week the chem 20s performed 3 quick labs: in one they created a solution, then they learned to dilute that same solution, and we finished with an Iced Tea lab, to determine the effect of dilute solutions on color and taste. All in all a fun (and pretty easy) week!
This week the chem 20s will again have a lot to do, but it's not very difficult! It seems most students are "getting" solutions. We will see, with the quiz coming this week! With band kids gone Thursday, Friday this week, they may have a little bit of work to catch up on (as they are missing project work time). Luckily, the project is designed to require no more than 4 hours of work time (provided in class for students who are not in band).

This week in chem 20 is all about preparing for the "dreaded" midterm exam. Today, I treated the kids to an enthralling review of all the material they have learned so far in chemistry 20... which is surprisingly not that much! Tomorrow, some of the students will be writing the rewrite exam for unit a, following that it will be the rewrite for unit b on Wednesday. The big exam is Thursday and then we will start the brand new unit c on Friday, to ensure students have no homework over the break! Yay!
