We continued our exploration of the Gas Laws with a series of activities designed to guide students through the process of not only deriving the Gas Laws, but ultimately to derive the Ideal Gas Law constant, R. For today’s work, students were tasked with collecting data from all three stations and then completing Part 1 of the packet as a team. We completed Part 2 as a class, with students taking home a copy of the Lesson 61 Worksheet with the expectation that if school is canceled Monday due to snow, they will work through the Lesson 61 worksheet and return to school prepared to use the Combined Gas Law. Students should also read through Lesson 61 in the textbook (see below) and work through the exercises at the end of the lesson for practice. For additional help, check out the video below. Reminders about more opportunities for help are provided at the bottom of this post.

Homework:

Read Lesson 61 in the textbook. Login via hs.saplinglearning.com and enter your username and password:

Password: S-####### (the S must be capitalized)

Work through the practice problems at the end of Lesson 61.

Please ask questions about anything from Lesson 61 you do not yet fully understand.

Opportunities For Help Outside of Class:

Mr. Swart’s office hours: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays after school until at least 3:00 (later with advanced notice)

Use the vast number of resources available on this website – check each lesson!

Email Mr. Swart for help if staying after school is not possible

Form a study group with other students and meet regularly to review concepts from class (meet in person, online, by phone, social media, etc)
