Last week, the students had their first quiz in chem 20, and it came to my attention that there is a lot of misconceptions in the math that occurs in chemistry. This is of no fault to the students, as it turns out (to my surprise), the curriculum in grade 9-11 math does not really go into depth with manipulating formulas. So this may be a consistent struggle throughout the year. Thankfully, for the most part, chem 20 can be solved using unit conversions, and as long as the chem 20s practice practice practice, they will be fine!
This week in chem 20 we will dive right into reviewing the mole concepts learned in science 10, taking it a little bit further with converting moles to concentration. We will finish up by creating and testing solutions of iced tea! Yum to chemistry!
Reminder, the Terry Fox run is this Friday, and if you have pledged to donate, you can use the link http://www.terryfox.ca/ChestermereHigh to donate today!
