I believe that only by pursuing a research career in chemistry I can satiate my inquisitive mind. Hence I decided to be a devotee of chemistry. From my childhood till now my academic standing is a thing which remained more or less constant. My inquisitive mind and competitive contemporaries always help me to be a bright student throughout my academic life. I always got some great persona with the indefectible understanding of science as my teacher, be it my school or my college.
In the 3rd quarter of IB Chemistry we finished the periodic trends topic and then began learning about chemical bonding and structure. Formative assessments have consisted of practice questions modeled after previous IB exam questions and experiments about single replacement reactions, properties of ionic and covalent compounds, modeling molecular compounds, and intermolecular forces. The summative assessments for the quarter were exams on the main topics of periodic trends and chemical bonding and structure. In the 4th quarter of IB Chemistry we will focus on organic chemistry. Tanay started the year off as an SL chemistry student but made the switch to HL and I have been very impressed with his efforts and success.
Hope you enjoy. SCIENCE - MIXED RESULTS In Science we learned for our first unit, relationship, in how plants and animals relate to plants and other animals. After we learned about ‘Photosyntheses’ and ‘The trophic level’ our teacher, Mr. Haag, thought to assess our learning to have a little quiz. I think I did pretty well on this assignment because I got a good grade (20/24). My second reason is because I learned a lot by this unit.
The describe and record the texture, color, and odor. When completing different test like pouring a liquid into a powder or heating it up, they observe the properties and actions that occur. Classificatory investigations were also used in Ms. Jean’s classroom when the students grouped the powders according to their characteristics and organized their data. The students learned different test indicators that identified the properties, for example when they put vinegar in baking soda it fizzes. The data collected from previous units prepared the students to
I had the chance to participate in a science competition during my high school years that allowed me to experience working in a lab for a day, familiarising myself with standard laboratory equipment. My participation in drama and theatre competitions during my high school and college years had challenged myself to step out of my comfort zone. I pushed myself to do my best in everything despite the lack of
My family, especially my late father has been a great source of inspiration for me. Science is the most valuable thing in my life that my father was introduced for me. Start with the animal anatomy, how each organs work and later with the drugs (vitamin and minerals) for cattle and poultry grab my interest in chemistry. Since elementary school to the senior high school I always get the top position in the class, and attractive performances in science, especially for physic and chemistry. In high school I attended the chemistry competition in my district and won the 2nd place.
As he hit the drum, we had to raise our hands when we heard the noise. This taught us how sound travels, and upon doing the same experience with a flashlight, we realized that sound travels much slower than light. Experiences like this one are included in my positive memories from science class, and I hope to be able to replicate them in the future. Because my teacher was eager to teach us this lesson, our experience as students was more enjoyable. Learning about the workings and parts
In the past four years at Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), I have successfully adapted to the intensive college study. With days and nights of hard work, I rose from rank 40 to rank 10 among 93 students in my class. During the four months’ exchange study at University of California Riverside (UCR), I also motivated my self to take extra courses, like Discrete Structure, in Computer Department. Moreover, intensive mathematics and computer science knowledge has been learn in courses and researches. In my junior year, my classmates and I stimulated the grain growth of a new copper alloy with Monte Carlo Method.
This class has two main learning goals: recognizing existing challenges in science teaching and thinking of the best possible ways to address those challenges. For that, we take a course that was taught to us in the past as an example course, and critique on things the teacher of that course did not do right. We also get chances to slowly develop activities, syllabus, assignments that could resolve those problems and facilitate better learning in the same example course. The class is quite informal, mostly involving discussions among peers, and Carl is there mostly acting as a moderator. Every class day, he comes with the same curiosity and enthusiasm to hear our ideas, and we are equally intrigued to hear his.
Alongside, the Fluid Mechanics Laboratory course added a great charm which made the theory course more interesting. Since my 11th grade, I was fond of properties of solid and fluid. This course took me to more depth to study fluid intensively. My interest in Fluid Mechanics increased a lot when I took Hydrodynamics and Hydrodynamics Laboratory (Sessional) in my sophomore year. I learned to analyze different theoretical knowledge of Hydrodynamics in the laboratory and visualized different flow patterns.
