Last week the chem 20s got to EXPERIENCE chemistry! I really didn't teach them anything, but together we designed and performed experiments to find the trends that gases experience involving pressure, volume and temperatures changes. I was just there to facilitate and make sure they didn't make any mistakes! SO MUCH FUN and LEARNING! <3
This week, we will continue with the inquiry based laws, learning Lussac's Law (the trends of pressure and temperature on a gas) and Combined Gas Law (pressure, volume and temperature). After that, we will move on to the next section of learning with a review of science 10 atoms and molecules within the periodic table.
Thursday, the chem 20s will have their first formative assessment, a quiz. This will cover the gas laws learned in class, but it will not count on the student's overall grade. Instead, it will let me see where they need more help and learning, and let the students see the types of questions that might be on a summative assessment.
This week in Chem 20
Monday: Lussac's Law Inquiry
Tuesday: Combined Gas Law Inquiry
Wednesday: Atoms and Molecules
Thursday: Quiz 1 (Topic 1-7) and Review
Friday: Periodic Trends
