Snow Day 2018 ❄️

pexels-photo-688660.jpegStudents,

This is just a reminder to remind you of my Remind reminders yesterday :).

  • Your homework due Jan 25 is posted. Please just continue working on Chapter 10 as outlined on the Assignment Sheet.
  • I know it is a little crazy not to have a lecture today, but I think you will find these videos helpful. We would have covered Boyle’s, Charles’s, Avogadro’s, and Partial Pressure Laws in class today. The practices at Khan Academy will be very helpful, too, if you need extra help.
  • We are also missing out on a cool polymer demo and Lab 9.2 today. We will perform Lab 9.2 in class on Jan 25 and hopefully, the demo, too, if there’s enough time.
  • Please be sure to bring two week’s worth of Assignment Sheets (including Prelab 9.2 and Postlab 9.1) and your math work from the Chapter 9 Online Test with you to class on Jan 25.

Stay warm! jb

Post-Fall Break Reminders

Hey Kids,

Aside from bringing your completed/corrected Chapter 5 BOOK Test, here is the email from last class:

You have one week of homework due on Oct 19 after Fall Break. There is not a new Prelab due because the Molecular Models Lab does not require one. You do have a Postlab due (5.2). Use p.152-153 to help you write it, especially the red box, two vocab words from book, and the word “surfactant.”

Cite where you got your definition for “surfactant.” See the Lab Report Format file on the Homework page for citation instructions. Please be sure to label your Postlab as usual in the left margin before class.

See you soon! jb

Reminders for This Week

Students,

We discussed the following in class, but here are a few reminders:

  • Be sure to always label your Postlabs prior to class in the left margin with: What, Why, How, Data, and Errors. Include all pertinent data, for example, your qualitative observations this week and which solution conducted electricity.
  • You may reorder your homework this week if you would like more time to prepare for the Chapter 4 Test, but you must complete it before class next week, Oct 5.
  • Here are some excellent videos/practice for more review before the test: electron config review, dot structures, ionic compounds.
  • Complete the worksheet this week that we started in class (linked to the homework page) and return it next week for credit. You may email me for the answers on Monday.

Have a great week… Fall Break is right around the corner! jb


Sep 28 HW

flame pictureStudents,

For this Thursday:

  • Your Postlab must be labeled before class: What, Why, How, Data, Errors. Your Data will be the identity of the two unknowns.  Do NOT forget to include the unknowns.
  • You must also include in your Postlab the following terms correctly: excited, de-excited, electrons, energy, and visible light. Check your book if you aren’t sure how to use them correctly. Please underline them.
  • For your Prelab, you will want to review p112-120 in order to write the three to four  sentence Introduction. The Prelab comes from the linked file “Conductivity of Compounds Lab.”
  • Don’t forget calculators and periodic tables.

See you then! jb


Sep 21, 2017

Students,

For this Thursday,

  • Be sure you have handwritten your Prelab in your lab notebooks as usual (according to the Flame Test Lab linked to the HW site).
  • Please note that any data tables are to be hand-drawn into the V. Data Section before coming to class. BaCl2 was left off the table, please add it in. (Props to Jamie for discovering this :)).
  • Be sure you are dressed appropriately for lab. Cover feet and legs.

I look forward to seeing you then! jb


Catching Up!

Ok, kids, so we are just about caught up. This week, remember to do the following:

  • Read p48 before writing your Postlab.
  • The Postlab needs to include your observations that you made in your Data section, as well as the What, Why, How, and Errors that we discussed in class today. Please label those five items in the left margin in your lab notebook next to your Postlab as discussed in class.
  • No Prelab this week (our activity does not require one next week)
  • Quiz over elements and symbols #1-36 next Thursday.

Have a great weekend! jb
