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 Thursday morning, 7:20ish A.M. (Honors Chem can come too!). EXAM ROOM ASSIGNMENTS are listed below. IMPORTANT – Bring 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! πŸ™‚

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 THURSDAY. God bless you, I’m praying for you!!

Honors Chemistry 302 Miller (Mr. Wilson’s room)
Chemistry – 2nd Period 303 Tapp
Chemistry – 3rd Period 304 McKenzie (Mr. Henderson’s room)
Chemistry – 4th Period 305 Clayton
Chemistry – 6th Period 310 Jenkins

Chemistry 5-18-17 Intro to Acids, Bases & pH

CHEMISTRY: Awesome lab today! Great intro to the properties of acids and bases, indicators and pH! And how about that beautiful art you created applying this new found knowledge!

How’s the exam review packet coming along? Help session for the exam this Wednesday morning, 7:15ish A.M. Update on the exam review – omit #59 on the exam review packet.

Hon Chemistry 5-16-17 pH & Indicators

HON CHEMISTRY – Who knew – chemistry and art!! Great work using pH with electrolysis today!

How are you doing on calculating pH? Acids mean H30+ ions and pH, bases mean OH- ions and pOH. Get the pH of an acid straight from the concentration of the acid. Get the pH of a base by first finding the pOH straight from the concentration of the base and then subtracting that from 14. No problem!! So how do you think someone would use pH?

Don’t forget about learning those indicator colors I told you about. Can you think of anything else that might be a natural indicator? What about tea? Have you noticed how it changes to a lighter shade when you add lemon?

Chemistry 5-3-17 Activity Series, Double Replacement & Combustion Rxns

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 5-2-17 Single Replacement Reactions & the Activity Series, Pt. 1

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!!

Hon Chemistry 5-2-17 Kinetic Molecular Theory & Pressure

HON 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. Remember, don’t just know, know why!

Chemistry 4-24-17 Synthesis & Decomposition Reactions

CHEMISTRY: Wow! So that’s where the pretty light comes from! Great job on catching up with synthesis and learning decomposition reactions.

I know we actually did them on two different days, but I thought it might be helpful to have both in one vodcast. Now go forth and practice what you learned! (The balancing equations part, not the playing with magnesium part!)
