Investigating chemical reactions with year 8. Giving the students an opportunity to play with the bunsen burners when looking at heating blue Copper Sulfate and turning it white and then adding water to make it blue again and getting some heat back before repeating the experiment.
Heating and cooling dry air using @pascoscientific wireless pressure and temperature sensors to detect the change in temp slow and pressure fast. Quick and easy science experiments with charts to walk away with.
Prep for A-level year 2 mocks. Not done differentiation and Integration, so can only do about 1/3 of the paper since most of the paper is A level, not AS, so many of the students are only able to do AS questions, not the harder A level ones.
What is light? How many colours are there.?Are some colours just the figment of the mind like red and green light makes yellow? Is white light real, or is it made up of other colours? And is it a wave or a particle? So many questions to find answers to.
Calculations of Biomass. How many aphids on a leaf? What percentage are infected? The mass of one aphid multiplies up compared to the mass of the tree.
How do sorts and searches work, and what are their advantages? Mechanically modelling them to see how they might work gives the students another way to visualise what is going on.
Teaching online with Zoom. We can still do experiments, but they are harder by remote control or have to be demos. But still, with a selection of cameras and tools, we can still make great lessons to be remembered.
AQA required practical electrolysis but quite a few year 11 students had not done it so after a quick refresher on the theory they had a go and correctly predicted the chemicals and successfully tested for oxygen, hydrogen and chlorine gases.
Could you change the air pressure with just the heat in your hands? The @Pascoscientific Pressure sensor could detect the change in pressure, and the thermometer recorded the change in temperature as the Pressure went up from 99.1 kPa to 100.1 kPa
Maths Homework - have a go at this Maths Paper. Now we have completed the syllabus practice is essential. With Maths, it is all about practice and learning how to use taught strategies to solve new problems.
Using the Hotwheels track to launch cars from 1m, .75m, .5m and 25cm, and then to measure their KE using a @pascoscientific light gate and Capstone. Working out why KE didn't = gPE was more of a problem because it was better when dropping a ball.
