Today we did an experiment. We stuck a copper wire in a beaker filled with .1 moles of silver nitrate solution, and watched patiently as crystals began to grow on the part of the wire that was in the solution. As we waited for the crystals, we learned about the oxidation and reductions reactions taking place, and by doing this we were also able to review balancing equations and calculating molar mass. Andrew will hopefully be posting the lab overview to his DP soon, but if you would like it sooner, send me an email and I'll send you pictures of the pages.

Tomorrow we will have hour/hour schedule in the morning. Chris White (the college counselor) will be giving a talk on his experiences applying for college and other things during fourth period, and we will be meeting with our Inspire Week groups during fifth period.

Next week, we will be going on a field trip to a college fair taking place at the San Diego Convention Center on Wednesday morning from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM. If you did not receive a permission slip today, make sure you grab one tomorrow. Andrew wants us to return the slips to him no later than Friday (preferably tomorrow).

  • Correct any incomplete work that Andrew passed back.
  • (Due Friday) Your happiness pursuits and journals are due!
  • (Due tomorrow) Signed permission slips for the college fair.
