We've spent a great deal of time and effort learning how to prepare to take quizzes over the year. Below, reflect on your experience in accordance to the following prompts in the comments section to this post. Please try to add some specifics to your responses.

- How do you feel about your quiz preparation since the beginning of the year?
- If you could go back, is there any advice you would give yourself?
- What can a teacher do to best help a class prepare for math quizzes?
- Is there anything you'll do in future math classes to be successful when taking quizzes?

These reflections not only help frame where you've been and where you're going, but also provide feedback to help me become a better educator. I look forward to reading your responses.

Day 1 of experimentation began last Friday, and the guiding questions for the activities are available below.

Yesterday we picked up where we left off, making additional observations and preparing for our final findings. The second day's procedure, as well as reporting prompts for the lab analysis, are provided below.

For our last day, we will obtain our actual mass of silver recovered and compare it to our theoretical calculation.

]]>It is recommended that students refer use the two homework sheets, their notes, and the review sheet posted below to prepare. We will go over the review sheet on Monday, and students should ask any remaining questions then. ]]>

We are spending the remaining of the week wrapping up some experimentation and reviewing math and chemistry concepts.

To finalize our first lab - Crystallizations of Common Ionic Compounds, students are to reflect in their lab notebooks according to the following prompts. These reflections are due by Friday, February 8. ]]>

Below is a worksheet for practice and reinforcement in these essential skills. The worksheet is due by Wednesday Feb. 6th by the beginning of class. ]]>

Earlier in the semester, students were given a packet of practice problems to help with preparation for the exam. Below is an answer key and a packet that has detailed explanations for the problems. I recommend to my students to take the practice test, note any questions that cause difficulty, and ask for clarity before taking the test next week. ]]>
