Nature of Science: Networking

Another busy day! Today students turned in signed copies of the syllabus and lab safety contract along with their milk lab work from last week.  Students received credit for their work in Illuminate and then filed everything away in their folder in the class file cabinet.  The remainder of the class period was spent constructing a social network.  Students used their critter diagrams to introduce each other and used that content to create a network diagram.  Nodes consisted of student names (names inside circles) and edges (lines connecting the nodes) represented shared points of interest.  The ability to construct a network diagram will be a valuable skill as we continue on with our study of biology.  Class concluded with students analyzing their networks by counting the number of nodes and edges and sharing out with the class.
