Chemistry 9-20-19 Technology 101 & Lab Reports

CHEMISTRY: Great job today beginning the journey of learning to write digital lab reports. Be sure and follow very carefully the directions in the Tech 101 Assignment sheet. Everything in the Tech 101 assignment is there to teach you something that you will need to know how to do to write up lab reports.

Two GREAT apps for your phone that will make your lab report writing life SOOOO much easier are the Google Drive app and Scannable (iphones) or CamScanner (android phones.) With the Google Drive app you can send lab photos from your phone directly to your drive and then insert them directly into your lab report. Huge time saver! With the Scannable app, you will be able to scan in your handwriting, calculations, etc., without having to use a scanner. So very helpful for this year – and I use it all the time in my every day life!!

For the future, here’s an overview of your workflow as you write up labs:

  • First, you’ll write your lab in Word or Google Docs, CAREFULLY following the Digital Lab Manuscript Form guidelines
  • Convert your Word document or Google Doc to a PDF
  • Upload the PDF to Google Drive in your Class Shared Folder
  • AND upload the PDF to

Instructions for using are on the Tech 101 sheet. If you already have an account you can use it – you don’t have to set up a new one. Here are the class codes – be sure and use the code for your class period!!

  1. The Science in the news article was about vaping and the consequences of vaping. The article also told us what percentage of people vaped and what percentage of the people who vape had severe injuries from vaping.

  2. The article I read had to do with Alzheimer’s. The scientists in the article showed that with less sleep there is tau build up in the brain. Tau is tied to Alzheimer’s. So many American who get deprived of sleep end up having a build up of tau which intern can lead to Alzheimer’s. So in the end make sure you get a healthy amount of sleep.

  3. I read an article that links TAU levels to Alzheimer’s disease. The scientist concluded that the TAU levels in adults in need of sleep spike. Tau is related to nerve cell death which is also related to Alzheimer’s. A great way to counter this is to get the right amount of sleep every night.

  4. The science in the news article I read was about vaping. They were telling us some of the consequences of vaping and how vaping can cause serious disease problems. The article also told us how the percentage of young teenagers vaping are skyrocketing and this can cause our young society to have health problems in the future.

  5. The science in the news article I read, was about the way you sleep, and the duration of your sleep, effecting the TAU levels in your body. They found that the TAU levels are linked to two different Alzheimer’s proteins. The scientists ran many tests and concluded that the more sleep you get, the less likely you are to get Alzheimer’s. The less sleep you get, you are more likely to get Alzheimer’s.

  6. I did the article about Vaping and how it is causing kids and young adults to be hospitalized or dying. Many studies from multiple different companies have show the affects and information that is causing them to be sick or die. But yet know one listens to them or the affects it is having.

  7. the article I read was about vaping. In this article we are told that scientists conducted a survey asking adults who had not seen vaping commercials whether they would like to try vaping, after being shown a vaping commercial for the first time. We are also told that the FDA became involved because the commercials contain cartoon characters in them which then causes child endangerment. That is the knowledge that I learned from the article.

  8. This week as I reviewed the recent test, I was pleased with my grade, but what I struggled with most was reading and remembering what a question asked for. This sounds simple enough, but I often skip over an important word in a question and get the whole problem wrong because of it. In order to prevent this, I am working to read information and questions more carefully in the beginning. I will also look back when I finish the work to make sure I answer exactly what I’m told to.

  16. This week, I struggled with understanding how we were going to find the mass without of balance. My class mates helped me understand how we were going to do it.

I, for the life of me, could not figure out what was wrong with my gmail or my google drive.

In the future, I’ll be sure to focus more in class and have set times to finish assignments out side of class
