Deeper, Deeper, Deeper Still

To kick off our new chemistry unit focusing on organic chemistry (covalent bonds with an emphasis on carbon-containing molecules) and smell, we watched episode 6 of Cosmos.  The most relevant segment of the video occurs between minutes 13 and 17, where Dr. Tyson explains how molecules are detected by our brain, resulting in the formation of memory associated with smell.  Students completed the Unit 2 Initial Model handout (half-sheet) and turned that in as evidence of learning and engagement.  We will revisit and add to the model of smell throughout the unit.
