Reflection: Complex Tasks First Day of Class - Section 4: Explore


Within the procedures I was aiming for students to do the experiment in the test tube.  However, as students worked I noticed that all of the groups ignored the test tube and did the procedure in the graduated cylinder as can be seen in this picture

This was my first time using this activity and I realize that I need to change the procedures for next year in order to clarify.

This updated version of the lab paper shows some improvements.
