Today marked the final day of time available in class for students to write their Egg Lab reports. Reports are due to me by the end of the day Saturday, and the best way to get the report to me is for students to “share” the report via Google Docs. Students who finished early were encouraged to download the class data set (posted yesterday as an Excel spreadsheet file) and compare their individual egg lab results with those of the students in my other classes who used similar conditions. The data also enabled students who tested their egg in complex “mixtures” (three or more solutions) to see how each solution affected the egg individually, providing a context for analyzing their own results.
To prepare for tomorrow’s quiz, students should study the lesson from Monday on Membrane Function.
