Day 45/180: net ionic equations tests, and productivity
While my students took their tests, I recorded their packets of stamped homework and the graded labs from yesterday. There’s a lot I need to put into the online grade book. The next unit also goes pretty fast, which means it’s another test soon. I’m starting to wonder what the purpose of all of these tests is. Yes, they’re more focused than, say, a single test every quarter, but what function do they serve other than closing out a unit?
I also acid-washed a bunch of glassware today. Strange memories of grad school came back. Lab requirements were to wash everything until the water sheeted off the glass, no drips left behind. It was beautiful, in a very OCD kind of way. High school lab beakers almost make me long for a good base bath… Almost.
