I have five chemistry students, but the school had no chemistry books. I made do with some intro to chemistry online assignments for the kiddos. But then the chemistry books arrived, and I could delve into them.
So, it was last Thursday before we really got into some real chemistry work. It was the section introducing problem solving in chemistry.
"We're doing math in chemistry?!?"
Massey was incensed. I suppose he thought he only had me for one math period.
I calmly explained that yes, math would be required for chemistry. That we would be solving problems.
Oh, they didn't like that. Not at all.
