Prior to beginning our second day of work on the Functional Group Poster Project, we discussed the Ester Synthesis Lab scheduled for tomorrow. Students received the lab handout and were instructed to read it completely and answer the pre-lab assignment questions as homework.
Next, we discussed the concept of “R groups” to help students better understand how to complete the poster project. We first watched the video posted to the previous lesson (also below) and then worked through a PowerPoint slide deck. Students had the remainder of the class period to work on their posters.
