Day 1:  Friday, October 29

Lesson Plan:
  • ChemThink Activity - Tutorial, Handout and Quiz
  • Discuss chemical reactions and equations
  • Grade Sheets - discuss tests, questions, appeals, low grade throwouts

Homework:
  • Complete ChemThink activity (if not done)
  • Read/study pp. 60-61 of textbook

Announcements:
  • Today is the end of the first quarter.
  • Grade sheets have been passed out.  If we need to talk, then come see me before or after school.
