The Science 10 class is learning about acids and bases by using pH indicators. The students participated by helping measure the amounts of chemicals; write the chemical formulas and equations; and make predictions about the reactions. These reactions helped us discuss concepts in chemistry and bring context to our practice calculations. The video clips captured some neutralization reactions as well as some fun and experimentation with the chemicals. Using a time-lapse feature, this video was filmed and edited by Justice Burke (Gr. 10).
The Science 10 class continues to practice writing symbolic and word equations to describe chemical reactions. In this lab, we turned pennies a 'silver' colour using a bond with zinc metal and a 'gold' colour by fusing the zinc and copper into brass. The lab demonstrated a synthesis reaction.
Each penny in this picture represents a phase of the experiment. First, we used the acidity of Coca Cola to clean the pennies. Then, we used boiling zinc sulphate and zinc metal to make the pennies look 'silver' in appearance. Finally, the finished brass coated penny has a 'gold' appearance to complete the effect
The Apprenticeship & Workplace Math 10 class built a working trebuchet as part of their unit on geometry. Our students were coached through the design process but they did the build completely on their own. Mr. Vincent provided the materials and helped with using the skill saw. In this first test, a softball was successfully launched using 100lb of counterweight.
