Science 30s have been chug-a-lugging through Unit B, and it's been a struggle for some, and very easy for others. This is because many students have taken chemistry 20 prior to Science 30, which allows them to have better background understanding of the more difficult topics in the unit. The first half of the unit deals with acids and bases, specific to acid rain, and the students learn about pH and titration analysis of Bronsted Lowry Acids and Bases. If a student came into Science 30 with only Bio 20, this unit is quite difficult to comprehend, as it is likely the student has not encountered anything chemistry related since the first unit in science 10 (this could be over 2 years ago!) Luckily, the second half of the unit evens the class out, as nobody has learned organic chemistry no matter what prerequisite courses they may have.
I have been very impressed with the Science 30s' effort this semester. All but one student handed in their last project on time! Awesome work guys! Keep it up!
