King Lear

From prose and poetry to madness and insanity, many themes prevail in King Lear, which we are studying in grade 12 English class. Arguably one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, we watched different renditions of the play and will be submitting an analysis next week. We will also discuss relevant themes and characters in a fishbowl seminar.

Terrific Titrations

We performed titrations of hydrochloric acid with sodium hydroxide every day this week in grade 11 chemistry class. Using a pH indicator and burets, we measured how much of each reactant was required for a neutralization reaction by detecting the instant the indicator in the solution turned pink, showing that the reaction was complete.

World War I Literature

Beautiful turns-of-phrase and vivid imagery pervade the WWI novel All Quiet On The Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque, which we are reading in our grade 10 English and History classes. On Tuesday, we wrote a literary analysis paragraph about the themes and morals of the story so far.

Time For A Solution

Little did we know that our study of moles in grade 11 chemistry would not end with the unit test. After an in-depth look at moles, we started a new unit on solutions. We will be looking into topics such as solubility, pH, and concentration, applying our knowledge about moles in the many solutions we have yet to find.
