This is soooooo cool! Wow, sounds like a great summer project! (Get it? Sounds? :)) Or maybe a project for my budding physics students? Hope you are having a great summer break!!
Psalm 19: 1 -3, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard.”
WOW! It has been an incredibly awesome year for me, and I hope it has been for you too! God bless you as you are studying for your chemistry & honors chemistry exam! If you need a break, check out this awesome review of the elements: The Element Song or this New Periodic Table Song, but don’t get distracted by the challenge!!
Chemistry Exam Help Session Wednesday morning, 7:20ish A.M. (Honors Chem can come too!). EXAM ROOM ASSIGNMENTS are listed below. IMPORTANT – Bring your textbook (and book fines) and your exam review packet to the chemistry room before you go to your exam room!
It is super, super important so study YOUR VERY BEST and remember to practice, practice, practice! This exam can make a HUGE difference in your average. FINISH STRONG, like you’ve been working all year!! Make flashcards out of the vocab, formulas, types of chemical reactions, etc. Practice writing chemical formulas, balancing equations, working the problems – try the practice tests on the online textbook or on sciencegeek.net, they’ll be really helpful. And get yourself plenty of snacks!
How’s the exam review coming? You know, I don’t just give you that thing for the extra credit. I give it to you because it will help you get organized and help you remember everything that’s going to be on the exam. As you answer each topic, keep studying it, if you’re having trouble!
EXAM ROOM ASSIGNMENTS are listed below. IMPORTANT – Bring your exam review packet to the your exam room on Monday. God bless you, I’m praying for you!!
Honors Chemistry 302 Miller
Chemistry – 2nd Period 303 Tapp
Chemistry – 4th Period 304 Henderson
Chemistry – 6th Period 305 Clayton
Chemistry – 7th Period 310 Jenkins
CHEMISTRY: Who knew there could be so much to learn about gases, and we’ve only just begun! Here’s the lecture on the kinetic molecular theory and the beginning of our discussion about the behavior of gases.
CHEMISTRY: Wow! Can you believe we finished all 17! Here’s the lecture on the rest of the activity series and double replacement and combustion reactions. Now that you’ve got everything on paper, it’s time to practice!
Need some extra help? Help session? Let me know and I’ll be glad to schedule one!
CHEMISTRY: Good job today on single replacement reactions! And today you got a head start on the activity series. Good job!
We’ve done 15 so far – how are you doing on memorizing them?! Careful though, don’t just memorize. Make sure you can apply them as well. When you start to work any equation, first determine what type of reaction it is, then figure out what rule applies and follow it to determine the products. I believe in you! You can do it!!
Got a lab to make up? Make up lab tomorrow morning – 7:30 A.M.
PHYSICS: Today was the last of the applications of lenses and refraction. I love it when you get to see how physics crosses over into other disciplines of science – from physiology with myopia and hyperopia and how lenses can help, to how microscopes and telescopes work. And also ever important to know – why is sky blue, and why are sunrises and sunsets orange?!?
Speaking of lasts – the LAST chapter test is Tuesday!! What should you practice? Application of concepts, ray diagrams with mirrors and refraction through a transparent medium and lenses, and problems. Hey, here’s something to think about… can something really disappear into thin air? How??
