Chemistry 8-20-18 Using the Scientific Method

CHEMISTRY – Great review today of the scientific method. I know you’ve heard it for umpteen years, but it is super important that you can APPLY what you’ve learned about the scientific method.

Speaking of that, you’ll have a great chance to practice using the scientific method tomorrow with Ooblek! Make sure you print and read the Oobleck lab sheet and bring it to class tomorrow!

And speaking of homework – the work from the textbook can be done with the online textbook. Do it on notebook paper, and you can use the back of the paper. Just make sure you number listing down and not across – especially if there are a, b, etc., parts – list those down on separate lines, not across the same line. Also, skip a line between each question. Be sure and turn it in at the beginning of class tomorrow.

So do animals use the scientific method? Hmmm…..

Here the last of the review from your old chemistry days – a short look at analyzing data. Speaking of that, how are your “Excel” graphs coming along? Any questions?
