CHEMISTRY: I figured anybody who ditched his honeymoon to finalize his work on atomic theory deserved to have his picture on our website. (And, by the way, great job making like electrons today – way to role play!)
So, do you think he’s right? Here’s a link to a short video clip that begins to connect everything together with the Spectroscopy lab you’ve been doing: The Electromagnetic Spectrum
CHEMISTRY: Fun field trip today!! Good job coming up with examples of the photoelectric effect. What? There really aren’t tiny people living in boxes above the doors at Wal-mart? And I just thought of another one, what about those automatic flush toilets!
What did you think about the problems? Again, make sure you not only memorize formulas, but also be careful to learn the symbols and units for each of the quantities you’re going to use, it’s easy to get them confused!
CHEMISTRY: So tell me again, if we’re supposed to be figuring out electrons, why are we studying waves? Here’s the lecture from Friday on just that. Make sure you know the types of electromagnetic radiation and the uses of most of them (all except for long waves). And just in case you really need to sing that song again, here’s The Electromagnetic Spectrum Song
How did you like the light problem formulas – so far? We’ll explore wave problems further next week – be sure to bring a calculator to class!
HON CHEMISTRY: Well, he may be noble, but I don’t think we were talking about the same thing today. I’m pretty sure you weren’t this laid back in class!
How do you like noble gas notation? Practice what you learned today. You’ll get the hang of it in no time. Lab Wednesday, but first, let’s do an overview of the test on Tuesday!
PHYSICS: Here’s a new way to study collisions! Somebody’s having way too much fun with veggies!
Here’s the review of some concepts from today, but from a different year. I thought it might be helpful to get a look at some of the problems we didn’t get to in class – not that you need them!
God bless you as you study for your test. I’ll be praying for you!
HON CHEMISTRY: Wow! You learned a lot today! Don’t we serve an awesome God?!? You probably knew the periodic table was really organized, but did you realize that it was THAT organized? Awesome!
Practice what you learned today. You’ll get the hang of it in no time. Let’s look at one more type of electron configuration notation tomorrow!
HON CHEMISTRY: Wow, you did a great job today! Did quantum numbers start making more sense once you are started using them? Good work today on orbital notation and electron configuration notation. I think you’re going to be seeing arrows and numbers in your sleep!
Don’t forget to use the Aufbau “chart” that you learned to draw!! We’ll move on to some short cuts tomorrow!
CHEMISTRY: Hey guys! Here’s the laaaaast part of the charter – fission and fusion, and the short overview we did on the test tomorrow. Have you started studying? Be careful and don’t take the test for granted! Here’s a copy of the Chapter 21 Stuff to Know & Study Suggestions sheet.
Make sure you practice half-life problems and nuclear equations. Also, make sure you’ve memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles, positrons, neutrons, and protons. And then there are tons of notes on the conceptual stuff. Properties of radioactivity, people, types of radioactive decay, applications of radioactivity, definitions, definitions, and definitions!
Practice everything! And did I mention, PRACTICE!! God bless you! I’ll be praying!!
PHYSICS: Who knew ping pong balls could be so much fun! So why did they shoot so far- did you figured it out?
On to working more of the problems tonight! How are you doing? Check for connections between the conservation of momentum and the conservation of energy. You can do it!
Help session Wednesday morning, 7:15ish A.M.

HON CHEMISTRY: Happy Monday! Great stat on quantum mechanics today!
Here are the video clips that we watched in class today. You really may want to watch them again as you study for the test.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum (not the song!)
Emission Spectrum of Hydrogen
Animated Quantum Video is the one that explains all about why scientists began to believe that electrons could be acting as waves
Quantum Mechanics explains more about the role of the men we studied today in the development of the quantum model of the atom
You will be responsible for the information in all the videos. And they’re all really good, I promise!
