Tuesday, February 5th
Today in science: In hope of working some of the long weekend cobwebs out of the minds/brains, Dr. M asked students to answer (in writing) a series of ‘remember’ questions about some of the topics and activities from before the long weekend. If students would like to see the questions asked in class, as well as their expected answers, they can see them in the Notes Portal. Students have been told these questions and answers will likely be useful when preparing for a future quiz and/or test during the Acids & Alkalis unit.
Homework: There is no science homework tonight.
Wednesday, February 6th
Today in science: The two main themes for this lesson were “pigment extraction” (a common experimental technique) and “mental rehearsal” (a not-so-common experimental practice). Upon arriving in the classroom, Dr. M asked students to prepare a new entry in their Lab Notebook for the “Red Cabbage Indicator Protocol,” which is a procedure that we will do in Thursday’s class. In addition to familiarizing students with some new equipment, Dr. M asked students to imagine doing parts of the experiment while writing out the Purpose, Materials, and Method (or Procedure) sections of the new protocol in their lab notebooks.
Homework: Students have been asked to complete the Red Cabbage Indicator Protocol, which was started in Wednesday’s class. The remaining steps of the method can be seen HERE. This work must be done in the Lab Notebook and completed before the start of Thursday’s science lesson.
