Instructional Ideas
  • Instruct class members to stand randomly throughout the room; most will move so they are all spaced roughly equidistant apart; review the concept of random and how there should be some clumps and some empty areas before going through the presentation
  • Bring a diffuser to class and have scholars explain how the smell travels throughout the room
Classroom Considerations
  • Requires prior knowledge of the gas laws
  • Provides the presentation in multiple formats
  • Adds colors and underlining to stress key points
  • None
