    10-17-17: We continued "Birth of the Earth" nearly finishing it (43:45). I also demonstrated and discussed coal gasification and combustion using oxygen gas. Students were asked to submit and exit ticket on what would make the class more engaging (many students seemed to tune out today).
    10-16-17: We continued "Birth of the Earth" to 29:38 and had discussions that included some of other links and videos like the collision of comet Shoemaker-Levy with Jupiter and some from reference links #115 ("How Uranus got its name" and "Why Pluto is no Longer Considered a Planet"). Students performed several "Stop and Jot" sessions, describing discussion topics and we paused the video and handed in papers for credit toward grade.
