This week will be busy for the chem 20 class! Having completed our first lab last week, we will be working towards completing unit A (molecular bonding)! Monday, we will review the lesson from Friday, because Tuesday we have our very first Chem 20 assessment! This quiz will consist of 4 questions, one from each topic covered within the first unit so far! I have high hopes that the students will be successful in this quiz - as long as they complete their homework they should be just fine ;) Wednesday, we will review the quiz, going over any questions the students may have and we will finish the unit's learning. Most students find the final topic of unit A (Forces within molecules) to be the most difficult. Likely because it is very theoretical and difficult to visualize. The final 2 days of the week will be dedicated to the unit A project, which is a summary project of the whole unit. It is my hopes that this will allow students to work through their own examples and better understand the material for the unit test that will be coming up next week! Students are able to work in partners for this project, which allows them to bounce ideas off each other!
