What is your favorite teaching moment from the past year?
As part of a chemistry lesson, my students used stoichiometry to calculate ingredient amounts for a cookie recipe - to later be tested out in the kitchen. It wasn't until one student erroneously calculated and measured out a half cup of vanilla extract (the entire bottle) that I realized I was teaching more than just stoichiometry. If that student remembers my chemistry class every time she bakes chocolate chip cookies, I will consider the lesson a success.
