The Chemistry students were super active today. We reviewed the Periodic Table stuff from yesterday with a special emphasis on metals and nonmetals. We then began a lab activity on identifying 7 different elements. The students received small samples of the 7 unknown elements and performed several tests to determine whether the elements were a metal or a nonmetal.
The AP Biology students began the lengthy discussion of large, essential biomolecules that do a much of cool stuff within us and other living things. We talked about carbohydrates where glucose takes center stage. Then, lipids (like fats) were discussed. Saturated fats, you say? What are those? Well, ask an AP Biology student. They'll tell ya.
