Today students performed LAB #9: The Carbon Cycle. This is a difficult lab to actually do correctly in our very short 48 minute periods. The students really did a fantastic job even though we did not get fantastic data. Tomorrow we will debrief and discuss what happened and what our possible sources of error were. I will give them the option of changing some of their procedures and redoing the entire lab on Thursday in hopes that we can get it set-up much more efficiently and collect better data.
