Last week, the chem 20s had their second quiz of the semester, and performed their first official "quick lab". I am learning a lot from these weekly quizzes, although they are not worth marks, they do tell me the gaps in understanding in the class, and WOW there are a few gaps!
So this week, instead of moving forward, we are going back. All the way back to science 10 review, because each and every student in this chemistry class need more practice on creating and balancing equations! So we will return to the basics, as if they are not confident in creating equations, the next step in chem 20 will be basically impossible! Not to worry - we have time, and in order to be successful, if we have to take a little bit more time, its ok!
Just to note, the first real exam for chem 20 is Thursday October 6, prior to the Thanksgiving long weekend. This will allow the chem 20s to have ZERO homework over the 5 day break! If your child will be absent the day prior to the break, please let me know, as I would prefer they write the test before leaving!
