Weeks 34-35 – How Much is Too Much?

Welcome to Weeks 34 and 35!  It is finally time to answer that age-old question: How much is too much? If I had a dollar for every time a student asked me, “Can I eat it?” after watching a chemical reaction in a lab…I could personally fund the Week 34 Bonus Credit Opportunity question (scroll way down to find it!).   We all know the answer is always, “No food or drinks in the lab!”  But why?  This week, you will be able to find out for yourself.  You have two weeks to complete this work.  The recommended weekly work schedule is provided below.  You must complete the weekly attendance check-in, but you are welcome to adjust the learning schedule to meet your own needs.  Also, for anyone working on the Unit 4 Honors Project, this lesson comprises an important section of that project.

Week 34 (recommended)

  1. Week 34 Attendance Check-In (required by 10am 5/15)
