To begin class, students received an extra 20 minutes to complete their Unit 3 Exams from last week. After that time (or before for students who were ready), students received the Lesson 68 Worksheet and Toxin Card Deck, along with a graphic organizer for analyzing the card deck. After the time for the exam concluded, we worked through the first few slides of the Lesson 68 PowerPoint, and students watched a video showing the chemical reaction written on the worksheet.
Students reviewed the key vocabulary terms in the Lesson 34 PowerPoint and Lesson 35 PowerPoint. They received the Lesson 35 Worksheet as a study guide, and we briefly discussed the ester synthesis reaction that occurs when a compound with a carboxylic acid reacts with a compound with an alcohol functional group. Students should work through textbook questions 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6, with question 4 available as extra credit.
With the Unit 6 quiz scheduled for Thursday, students will have the next two days to finish their research reports, review the practice quiz, and to ask questions from Unit 6.
Students worked through the Chapter 6 practice exam and then we reviewed the questions. Notes from the white board are pictured below:
