WEEK 5

Fri. 2/2. Attendance: 23/24 (Football Practice: Aidin Amir). Discussed Exercise , BlogA, page . Half way through class, a group of prefects came to conduct spot check on all MacBooks – apparently one student lost her MacBook during lunch. Discussion resumed after that. Students were reminded not to get too excited until they ended up making too much noise. Based on my personal observation, after having taught them for 5 weeks, I found this group of 1 Cempaka very enthusiastic and eager learners, responsive and resourceful, would always volunteer to answer questions posed during class discussions – in short, it’s a joy to teach them. However, they have one very big flaw – they are “chatter boxes”!. Once teacher stops teaching or explaining, they need constat reminder not to get too excited and make too much noise. Today, I reshuffled seating positions of 2 groups (members: Eu Zai Sheng, Robin Lee, Teoh Jun Vinh, Daniel Lim, Amanda Khoo, Andrea Chan, Cheah Si Mynn, Chin Siew May & Mithrra Kuladeva). They got the message – condition improved after that. We’ll see if I have to do the same to the rest.

. Did 2 experiments: using burette and measuring cylinder to measure volume and measuring volume of irregular solids. Discussion was done in class – as usual class was very active in volunteering to answer. Well done! Some students took photo of their burette set up (Siew May and company). Hope they will post it on the blog. Proceeded to do concept map on Physical Quantities, which is to be completed as homework.

Attendance:24/24. Gave out Science files for keeping notes & hand-outs. Introduced laboratory apparatus. Discussed Hazard Symbols.

Wed. (10/1/07)
Attendance: 23/24 (Absent: Vilsasha). Did experiments-using external and internal calipers and practice lighting up the Bunsen Burner. Had a lot of fun!!! Students took photos of the flames using their MacBook cameras. Photos posted on comment for the week.

Attendance: 22/24 (Absent: Meenakshi and Eu Zai Sheng). Sadly, photos posted on Wed/Thur could not be viewed. Will get expert advice to rectify the problem. Mrs. Malar joined in to observe how science is taught to F 1 Cempaka. Started by logging in to view and learn from new sites posted on Form 1 Science blog (on Hazard Symbol). Continued discussion on Bunsen Burner. Proceeded to experiment to measure regular and irregular shapes. Did not get to do PEKA Practical – time constraint and wrong judgement.
