Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Testing Our Thermal Loss Procedures - Section 3: Reporting Conclusions

 

Some thoughts about the end of the lesson:

I think what this means to me is that I need to be more specific with students about the task, emphasizing the need to quantify the thermal loss (and specifically NOT try to prevent loss). I could intervene during the testing period and try to identify those teams whose plans seem too "qualitative' and not "quantitative" enough.

Testing Our Thermal Loss Procedures

Unit 1: Thermodynamics
Lesson 9 of 14

Objective: Using a typical calorimetry experiment, students will test their strategies from the previous class for estimating energy lost to the surroundings.

Big Idea: Scientists test their ideas to see how well they adhere to real world situations.
