The art of telling stories has always played an intrinsic role in society, stirring up distinct feelings within us. We started our unit on short stories this week in grade 11 English class, working on crafting character and developing backstory. The unit will culminate with each of us writing our own short stories.
Fact: TOPS kids love science. Every Friday, the biology and chemistry club meets to try new and interesting experiments in the science lab. This week, we combined sodium hydroxide, hydrochloric acid, and an indicator to create some colourful titrations. We also found out the winners of the crystal-making competition.
Ever wonder what the mass of air is? The grade 11 chemistry classes will be exploring this and more as we delve into our gas unit, looking at Boyle’s law, Charles’ law, Gay-Lussac’s law and other gas-related concepts. Next, we will study how gases react to high pressure.
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.
