Hon Chemistry 3-28-18 Single Replacement Reactions

HON CHEMISTRY: Here’s our discussion on the rest of the decomposition and single replacement reactions – and you also got a head start on the activity series!

This makes 15 reactions so far, and we’ll do the rest tomorrow. Careful though, don’t just memorize them. 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!!

Physics 3-28-18 Waves

PHYSICS: Hey guys! Here’s our discussion on the properties of waves. Remember anything from your earlier 8th grade physical science days? Problems are pretty simple for you, I think. Do you remember the main formula from chemistry? Speed = wavelength x frequency (c = Ξ»f).

HOMEWORK UPDATE: All the book homework from waves will be due Friday.

Easy peasy – and don’t forget the applications!

Lost in the Don Juan Basin

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 Don Juan Basin project so that everyone can see the answers.

First answer – the due date is Tuesday, April 17.

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? πŸ™‚
