In this exciting course learners will use chemistry and physics to predict how Halloween candy reacts in different solutions and temperatures! Learners can use the optional material list if the wish to complete the experiment with me. Students will learn the basics of matter and how they interact to make different matter (e.g. chemical reactions). We will use the scientific method to predict, record, conclude, and suggest improvements on our experiment. Learners will be able to interact...
Students learn the methods of prediction, testing, recording results, and improvement. Students will be able to use hands-on activity using everyday items to create a fun and exciting experiment.
I am a middle school and high school math and science teacher with eight years of experience. Additionally, I am a homeschooling dad of 12+years who has four kids that are four different types of learners. I have the privilege to teach many subject areas, but chemistry is my favorite as it applies to all other areas of science. My opinion is that if a student understands major chemical concepts, other sciences become more clear. I hold a MS and BS in the natural science
A supply list of candy and other inexpensive items will be provided 7 days before class.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
If the students desire to complete this along with me, parental supervision is suggested. All supplies are safe and common household items, however, the sequence of events are important for experiment's success. Students and parents are advised that common latex balloons may cause sensitivity or allergy in some students or individual. If this is the case latex free balloon should be sought after.
