Potato Catalase Lab Report

  1. Read this document through to the end!!!
  2. The report is due on Friday, December 1, 2017.
  3. The Potato Catalase Lab Report Checklist contains all of the required items for your report.
  4. You may work (equally) with one partner.
  5. Create a Google Doc (shared with the teacher and your partner) for your lab report.
  6. Create a Google Sheet (shared with your partner) for your analysis.
  7. Use your potato catalase lab packet as your guide!  It contains nearly everything you need to write the Introduction.
  8. You should have written the Procedure in your lab notebook before conducting the experiment.
  9. The Results for Data Table 1 are provided here.  For Data Table 2, copy the results tables into Google Sheets and organize them so you can calculate the average change in oxygen for each experimental group.  Make a table of the average change in oxygen for each sample per group (i.e. average all of the “raw potato” data, repeat for the other groups) and then make a graph from that for your lab report.
  10. Use the data from Data Table 2 to discuss the results in your Discussion.  Also refer back to your potato catalase lab packet.
  11. Please ask Mr. Swart for help.  If you get stuck on one part, work on another part until you can get help.  This must be turned in by midnight on Friday, December 1 to receive credit.  No exceptions.

Octet Rule

We continued our study of Lewis Dot Structures by investigating the Octet Rule through the lens of double and triple bonds.  Students applied the HONC 1234 rule with their understanding of valence electrons (octet = eight electrons) to build molecules that share one or more bonds.  We worked through the Lesson 32 PowerPoint and then students used the Lewis Dot puzzle pieces from Lesson 31 to work through the Lesson 32 worksheet.  Some students elected to use molecular modeling kits to further their understanding of the geometry of how atoms bond.
