Chemistry 11:  Today we learned 7 different functional groups:  Aldehydes, Organic Acids, Ketones, Ethers, Esters, and Amino groups.  The WS we did today is due Wednesday.  Organic Test on Friday.  Final Exam next week.

Science 10:  We began with a 15 minute review of categories of chemical reactions.  We read pg 182 and 183, and categorized all the chemical reactions on pg 184. An answer key was posted at the side.  We listened to trains, planes, and ambulances passing by the school to experience how sound pitch drops when an object passes by - this is called the Doppler Effect.   Astronomy Test Friday.  Final Exam next week.
