This week in chemistry 20 we will be finishing up Unit A: Molecular Bonding. The students will be given their first project, the "Meet My Molecule" Project which is an inquiry based project in which students choose one ionic and one molecular molecule to investigate more deeply.
After that, we will move on to Unit B: Gases, which is a completely Inquiry Based Unit in which students are asked to develop a variety of lab activities to learn the concepts in the unit. I developed this learning technique last semester, based on Inquiry Based Learning that is the newest focus of Alberta Education, and turned out to be extremely successful: every student achieved 100% on this section of the final exam in chem 20 in January.

Tuesday: Review of Unit A
Wednesday: Work Period / Study Time
