Overall I think I did really well not only on the test, but understanding the majority of the unit. I feel that on the test I could have explained with more detail the difference of a compound and an element, for example. I feel that I could have studied more profoundly, so I could explain with more depth how they contributed to atomic theory, being discoveries or experiments. I studied really hard for this test, and you can clearly see how studying and redoing the study guide can vastly improve the scores you get on a test.

During the past couple of months, we have been learning about solubility. Me and my partner Bia, carried out an experiment, so we could determine if temperature had an effect on solvents or solutes. We decided to dissolve sugar in water of different temperatures, taking how much time it took to dissolve. I feel that the experiment was carried out smoothly, yet when analysing and writing a conclusion, we lack higher order and critical thinking. I feel that we could have explored the data we got more deeply, and explain with more detail if our hypothesis was right or wrong and why. In order to get a higher grade, we should have also sited the sources in MLA format as well. Overall I think we did pretty good.
