G6 Week 06 – S2

Friday, March 9th

Today in science: Students had 60 minutes to perform their 1st trial of INV#3: “Experimental investigation of the effect of time on the amount of gas found in a carbonated (fizzy) beverage.” During the experiment, Dr. M began collecting students’ experimental results in a class data table, which can be seen HERE.

Homework: There is no science homework this weekend.

Thursday, March 8th

Today in science: Dr. Merritt asked students to continue adding information to INV#3 (Experimental investigation of the effect of time on the amount of gas found in a carbonated (fizzy) beverage), which is being kept in their Lab Notebooks. In class, students were asked to not only create data tables in which to record the data generated during their experiment, but also create a “Materials” list to guide work on Friday. If any students still need to see what should be in their lab notebook, the link to the ‘official’ INV#3 Google Document is still active.

Homework: Any students who did not finish the required work in class should complete it at home.

Wednesday, March 7th

Today in science: Dr. Merritt asked students to continue adding information to INV#3 (Experimental investigation of the effect of time on the amount of gas found in a carbonated (fizzy) beverage), which is being kept in their Lab Notebooks. In class, students were asked to make sure that their lab notebook contained all of the information contained within the ‘official’ INV#3 Google Document.

Homework: Students have been asked to write a procedure for their cola investigation in their lab notebooks. In class, special instructions were given in terms of formulating each of the step of the procedure. Some of these special instructions are included below:

1. Start each step with a command verb (for example, “put,” “pour,” “observe,” “measure, “record,” etc.).
2. Do not use pronouns such as “I,” “me,” “we,” “you,” “he,” “she,” etc.
3. When possible, specify the number and/or size of your materials (for example, “250-mL glass beaker”).
4. When possible, specify the amount of a solid or liquid (for example, “500-mL of cola” or “2 grams of table salt.”
