Lost in La Mer du Labrador

Welcome to a great adventure! You’ve learned so much this year – not just concepts, but skills, and I can’t wait to see how you are going to apply it all!

Here’s the place where you can post your questions about the Lost in the Mer du Labrador project so that everyone can see the answers.

First answer – the due date is Tuesday, April 25.

A really useful hint? Go back and re-read the project again – this time with a highlighter. It’s amazing how much I miss the first time I read something. So what’s your next question? 🙂

Chemistry 3-8-17 Chapter 5 Overview

CHEMISTRY: God bless you as you study for your test on chapter 5! Here is our overview of the test from today! Need extra practice or help on something from the chapter? Help session tomorrow, Thursday morning, 7:20ish A.M.

Speaking of studying for the test, did you find the Chapter 5 Stuff to Know Sheet on Edline? A couple of other items for thought – besides the ones on the sheet, that is, why is grass greener after a lightening storm? And don’t forget about arsenic poisoning – the symptoms, the test, and how the test works.

God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!!

Physics 3-8-17 Overview of Chapter 8

PHYSICS: So I may have been a little wrong about the difficulty of last night’s problems, but aren’t you glad we went over them! Great review today. My apologies on the recording – I kept forgetting when I hit pause and when I didn’t!!

God bless you as you study for your test!

Hon Chemistry 3-6-17 Chapter 6 Overview & Help Session

HON CHEMISTRY: You did it! We finally finished the chapter. Here’s our overview of the test tomorrow. Below that is the help session from this morning.

Do you feel like you are under water with all that you have to do? Here’s a good place to start getting organized. Make a chart, a really big chart of “What I need to memorize,” “What I need to know how to do,” and “What I need to be able to apply/discuss.” Then start practicing the things you have have the list!! Practice is especially important on the “problem” like objectives such as Lewis structures, drawing ionic bonding, etc. I would also encourage you to make lists of possible discussion questions and then practice answering them for the test. If there are things you are unsure about, go back and watch parts of old vodcasts.

Another idea to help you study is to use the “Visual Concepts” part of the online textbook for this chapter. And don’t forget that a great place to parctice dot notation and Lewis structures is at sciencegeek.net and practice the things from our chapter that are in the Unit 3 Review Activities. You get feedback right away to know if your answer is right or not, and that’s a good thing.

We’ve covered quite a lot in this chapter. God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!!

Monday morning help session:

Chemistry 3-6-17 Ionic Radii & Electronegativity

CHEMISTRY: Here’s the lesson for Monday and the last of the periodic trends – not car trends, periodic trends! Also – and this is SUPER IMPORTANT, at the end of class, we worked that big homework question from #50 – 53 that WILL be on the test! Definitely a good idea to go back and review it!

Physics 3-6-17 Bernoulli – Part 2

PHYSICS: Great job setting up the Bernoulli problems today. My best hint – Remember the concepts behind the formulas you want to use!!

Here’s Julius Sumner Miller Bernoulli video on YouTube if you missed him in class!

Chemistry 3-3-17 Electron Affinity

CHEMISTRY: So you’re saying, not only are there atoms that want to get rid of electrons, there are atoms that want to take them? Here’s a picture of chlorine taking an electron from sodium – or sodium giving an electron to chlorine. I’ll let you decide!

If you were absent Friday, you must watch this lecture from Friday on 2nd ionization energy and electron affinity. Also, at the beginning of the vodcast, we talk about the correct answers to the “Most Abundant” questions. Very helpful for the test!

Physics 3-2-17 Bernoulli – Part 1

PHYSICS: Were you amazed at the effect of change in surface area on the velocity of water, and especially the pressure of water, flowing through a tube? Thaaaaat explains how a calm ride on a lazy river can turn crazy in just a few seconds!

Here is the lesson from Thursday – Bernoulli Part 1. We mainly concentrated on qualitative applications of Bernoulli’s Principle with some practical applications. More of the quantitative stuff tomorrow!

Chemistry 3-2-17 Atomic Radii & Ionization Energy

CHEMISTRY: Welcome to chapter 5 – again! Here’s the lesson for today. It’s the lecture on the first two periodic trends – atomic radii and ionization energy. Who knew mama ducks could help you understand chemistry!?!

Hon Chemistry 3-1-17 Intermolecular Forces

HON CHEMISTRY: Well, here it is, the very last lecture from chapter 6 – intermolecular forces. (Don’t forget they’re also called van der Waals forces!) Tons of application, from bugs walking on water to little fishes breathing dissolved oxygen.
