This week the grade 11 TOPS students explored the relationship between the concentration and volumes of solutions. They performed a serial dilutions lab which consisted of diluting a solution of copper (II) sulphate pentahydrate in water several times.
Using their newly acquired knowledge of derivatives, the Grade 11 TOPS class is learning how to graph functions more accurately. This includes identifying characteristics such as values of relative maxima and minima, points of inflection, and concavity.
This week, grade 11 TOPS chemistry classes explored various properties of Copper (II) Sulfate including the relation between the mass and the number of moles in a compound. Coincidentally, this lab took place on October 23, also known as Mole Day!
This week, the grade 11 TOPS classes observed the different types of chemical reactions being put into action through a series of labs. The labs included experiencing the bright light of burning magnesium with oxygen and the colourful reactions after adding different metals to ionic compounds.
