Day 77: Board Meeting & Activity Series

Physics: Electric Fields Board Meeting

Students whiteboarded their graphs from yesterday’s electric fields simulation. I was really pleased with how quick students were to bring up Coulomb’s Law as a way to check if their relationships made sense. There was also some good discussion about why linearization is useful, where several groups shared their initial attempt to linearize using a purely inverse (rather than inverse-square) relationship between field strength and distance.


Chemistry: Activity Series

Students dropped four different metals into four different solutions to see how many times each metal reacted. They were able to rank the metals in a crude activity series, then we looked at how that activity series could explain which solutions each metal reacted with.
