Agenda

By | Chemistry In The Earth System
  • Rules for Jigsaw reading (roles)
  • Discuss reading results from yesterday; document consensus results
  • Jigsaw reading assignment #2: Using same groups, refine your ideas as to the cause of ocean acidification; document your claim, evidence (from text, NOT personal opinion or experience) and reason why this evidence supports your claim

Agenda

By | Chemistry In The Earth System
  • Equilibrium lab quiz
  • Submit Equilibrium lab
  • Jigsaw reading assignment: in pairs, students will divide the article up evenly and then each read their portion. Once both students are finished, they will each describe what their portion of the article was about.

Agenda

By | Chemistry In The Earth System
  • Equilibrium lab debrief; lab due tomorrow
  • Lab quiz tomorrow; know: definitions from lab sheet, safety hazards and precautions, factors that affect equilibrium, specific factor we are manipulating in this lab (independent variable)
  • Equilibrium quiz on Thursday
  • Return and correct assignments

Agenda

By | Chemistry In The Earth System
  • Submit Factors that affect Equilibrium Concept Map
  • Equilibrium virtual lab post lab quiz tomorrow: know the properties that affect equilibrium, examples of how they affected the system, how we would determine how a change occurred, and how we would know in which direction the reaction favored (shifted)
  • Notes: Recognizing Equilibrium systems
  • Demo: Phenolphthalein and Acids and bases
  • Notes: Concentration and Equilibrium
