Chemistry: Speed Dating

We did some whiteboard speed dating with empirical formula problems. By the end of the hour, most students were feeling pretty confident. Just to solidify that confidence, we did a “practice pop quiz” where I put up a problem and had students work through it in quiz-like conditions, then went through the answer and had some conversation about the next steps for people who didn’t do well on that quiz.
