Day 165: Final Review & Isotopes

Physics: Final Review

Students continued working through the lab practicals to review for the final exam. Overall, I’m pretty happy with how the review has been doing, though a lot of groups were confused about what they were being asked to do on the standing waves practical. I need to revise the directions to make it clearer that they should calculate the length of the tube needed to resonate, then use the materials to test it.

 

Chemistry: Isotopes

Students used what they know about isotopes to determine how many pennies in a sealed container were made before 1982 vs. after. They struggled to make the connection between the lab and what we’ve done so far on isotopes, so I need to make some changes to help students better build that link.
