Day 60: Bar Charts & Representing Reactions

Physics: Bar Charts

We used yesterday’s lab to define kinetic and gravitational potential energy, then students took their fist stab at drawing energy bar charts. Students took to the bar charts pretty easily.


Chemistry: Representing Reactions

Today, students practiced translating between representations of a chemical reaction. Given a balanced equation for a reaction, I had them write a statement. This year, I took a page from the Modeling Instruction chemistry curriculum and also had them sketch a diagram that showed the atoms for both the reactants and products.
