PHYSICS: Are you having flashbacks from chemistry? All this SI and calculations stuff will come back to you before you know it. Holler if we need to practice. Don’t forget to show all your work!
Happy Wednesday! Are you having a difficult time understanding what a good web post comment is? In the future, you will probably be taking online classes where you will have to be part of online class discussion groups, and you’ll be graded on your comments and how you participate.
Here is a plan that will help you! Your goal is to have STAR Web Post Comments. Hokey title, but maybe it will stick! Click here on the STAR Web Post Comments Idea Sheet for ideas for good comments that will receive credit.
IMPORTANT: Make double dog sure you write your name in your web post the correct way. If your name/heading is not written correctly, you will not receive any credit for making the web post.
Here’s what you do:
- Click on the title of any web post from the week that I have made for your class.
- Scroll to the very bottom of it where it says “Leave a Reply” – you may have to scroll past comments from other people, but you can reply to those also!
- Enter your name correctly and your email.
- Type in your comment (see the info above.)
- Type in the Anti Spam characters in the space provided.
- Click Post Comment and you are done!
CHEMISTRY: So how do you separate salt and sand? Did you conquer filtering? Make double sure of two things before tomorrow: 1) read the lab before you come to class to do it, and 2) get a head start on the questions at the end of the experiment packet.
Your test is coming up VERY SOON! Have you started studying? In addition to the lab safety packets and the lab safety video, here is some VERY IMPORTANT information to study
- All the lab apparatus – be able to identify it all and know what all the apparatus is used for.
- Know the parts of the Bunsen burner and how to light one.
- Know the parts of the balance and be able to measure mass with a balance AND volume with a graduated cylinder.
- I’ll ask you about safety control equipment and where it’s found in the lab.
- I’ll also have the safety symbols and the information they represent on the test
- Make sure you can both set up or draw and label diagrams for filtering, boiling, evaporating, and heating intensely.
HUGE HINT: Go back and view the earlier posts/slide shows on Lab Apparatus, Lab Tour, Lighting a Bunsen burner, Measuring Mass and Volume, etc. All of these are VERY helpful for the test!!
Also, don’t forget that the entire Exp A-1 Procedures & Techniques packet (including observations for ALL of the procedures you did as well as ALL of the questions on pages 13 – 18) is due FRIDAY.
God bless you as you study! It’s a ton of information, but you can do it!! I’ll be praying for you!!
