Last week, kids had no questions, they had no concerns about learning organic chemistry, and then they got the exit slip... and averaged 45% between the two classes. So, where is the disconnect??? Organic chemistry, although easier than most other units in chem 30, has so many little tricks, and so even if a student is confident in the understanding, a little mistake means a large error.
This week, the students will experience a quick lab where we make esters, which is really smelly and fun! They will also have a quiz (similar to the exit slip) and a project assignment, as I will be away for Thursday Friday for Western Canadian Boxing Championships.
