Day 93: Parallel Circuits & Reaction Rates

Physics: Parallel Circuits

Students did the real world version of the parallel circuits lab and put the patterns they’d come up with on whiteboards. After seeing that, in series circuits, the ratio of the resistance to the potential difference across a bulb had some significance, I saw more groups paying attention to the relationship between resistance and the current through a bulb in parallel.

Chemistry: Reaction Rates

Students finished up the reaction rates lab from yesterday, and we discussed the results. Students are getting more comfortable sharing their ideas and finding their own connections to the material, which mean there were more students contributing to the discussion and I heard a greater range of ideas shared.
