Day 113: More Final Review

Students in both courses continued to work on their final review assignments. After a three-day weekend, both classes were much less focused than they were on Thursday. In chemistry, I talked to them a bit about the strategies I saw during class, and how they could improve on them. The students who were working pretty well on Thursday seemed receptive and tried to refine their approach. There were some groups that had great conversations about the problems on the review. In physics, I saw a lot less collaboration than on Thursday and a lot more off-task behavior in general. A lot of students talked about feeling fried from studying and working on final papers or projects over the weekend, and I saw more students working on other homework than usual. I think a lot of students are just feeling fried by the end of the tri. Tomorrow, I’ll switch to something more structured, especially since it will be time to go over the reviews.
