An Experiment in Process

This post outlines a recent lesson and activity I designed for my integrated chemistry/physics students. Fair warning: science ahead. The Problem I teach a class called Integrated Chemistry & Physics. It's meant to serve as an all-around physical science for high school students (they need one life science and one physical to earn a diploma).Read More
