Hon Chemistry 2-20-18 Chapter 5 Overview

HON CHEMISTRY: Okay, this no microphone thing is getting a little old, BUT I think I’ve found a couple of old vodcasts that kind of sum of what we’ve been doing the last couple days. They won’t be be exactly like our last couple of classes, but I think they’ll be helpful. First is an overview of Chapter 5 – including the Marsh test results. Below that is an old overview of the Reverse Scavenger Hunt.

Do you plan to practice #50 – 53? Strongly encouraged! Did you understand it when we did it today in class? Help session Friday morning, 7:20ish A.M.

Hon Chemistry 2-15-18 d & f-block Intro & a Look Back at cLAB: Element Reverse Scavenger Hunt

HON CHEMISTRY: Wow! Did you every dream there was that much interesting and important stuff to know about the s, p, d, and f block elements?! Here’s the introduction to the d & f blocks, and then, our beginning of running through all the slides to clarify some information and filled in gaps you might have had.

As you are studying, make sure you go back and practice figuring out the period, block, group, and type of element from the electron configuration. And don’t forget the topics I asked you to research for yourself that you will find on the Chapter 5 Stuff to Know Sheet (coming very soon!!)!

To make your research even more interesting(!), there are some really interesting videos with tons of useful information at this site: http://periodicvideos.com/

The videos that you must watch from the s-block for the test are potassium, magnesium, and calcium.

The videos you need to watch for the p-Block are carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, fluorine, and chlorine. http://periodicvideos.com/

The elements from the d block that I especially want you to watch are copper and mercury. And there are other interesting ones you might like to watch just for fun!

The videos on from the f-Block that you need to watch are: neodymium, thorium, and uranium. Go pop some popcorn and have some movie time!

Hon Chemistry 2-8-17 Electron Affinity, Ionic Radii & Electronegativity

HON CHEMISTRY: Here’s the last of the trends – not car trends, periodic trends! For now, it’s an lesson from last year, so fast forward past the syllabus part! 😉

Have you begun by watching the videos on the Periodic Table of Videos site? Great place to gather information for the cLAB!

Hon Chemistry 2-7-18 Atomic Radii & Ionization Energy

HON CHEMISTRY: Hey guys, here’s the first lecture on periodic trends – atomic radii and ionization energy. You made some great connections today!

If you’d like to get a head start on the element videos that I talked about in class today, they are at periodicvideos.com. Very interesting(!), with tons of useful information!

Hon Chemistry 2-5-18 History of the Periodic Table & cLAB: Element Reverse Scavenger Hunt

HON CHEMISTRY: Great start to a new chapter! I love that you are going to be learning to research some really cool stuff about the elements on the Periodic Table.

Here is the intro the the history of the periodic table and and your short intro to the cLAB: Element Reverse Scavenger Hunt. This doesn’t exactly match what we did in class, but it’s a good start. Begin the vodcast at 4 minutes or so. We’ll continue with some of the rest of the Periodic Table tomorrow!

Hon Chemistry 1-30-18 Chapter 4 Overview

HON CHEMISTRY: God bless as you study for the chapter 4 test! Since we weren’t able to record today, I’m posting an overview from a couple of years ago.

Have you checked out the Chapter 4 Stuff to Know Sheet? Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to memorize the things you need to memorize so that you can apply them on the test. And practice, practice, practice, the problems and electron configurations. Did I mention that already?

What about applications for discussion? Photoelectric effect, spectroscopy, etc.? Another great idea for studying is to watch the videos that we watched in class, and others – super helpful as you study for the test!! Here are some of them:
Spectrum of the Stars (overivew of the results of the spectroscopy lab you did, shows the connection between our lab on spectroscopy and how we can identify elements), Emission Spectrum of Hydrogen (how we use it to know about the energy levels in an atom), Quantum Mechanics (about the roles of Bohr, Schrodinger, Heisenberg), and also Animated Quantum Mechanics.

Help session tomorrow morning, 7:20ish A.M. God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!!

Hon Chemistry 1-24-18 Electron Configuration & Blocks of the Periodic Table

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’ve learned!! You’ll get the hang of it and be as laid back as this “noble” fellow in no time! 😉

Hon Chemistry 1-23-18 Orbital Notation & Electron Configuration Notation

HON CHEMISTRY: Wow, you did a great job today! Did quantum numbers begin making more sense when you started using them? Good work today on orbital notation. I think you’re going to be seeing arrows and numbers in your sleep!

And then, just when you were getting the hang of drawing arrows, I go and change it! But don’t you think writing electron configuration notation is a whole lot shorter than doing orbital notation? Don’t get me wrong, knowing how to do orbital is great for seeing how the electrons are paired, but this way is waaaay shorter!

Be sure and practice with the homework tonight, and don’t forget to use the Aufbau “chart”!!!

Hon Chemistry 1-22-18 Quantum Numbers

HON CHEMISTRY: Great start on quantum numbers today! Wow, it was a lot. Confused yet?

Don’t worry – today you learned all the background information about quantum numbers, tomorrow we’ll put it all together and it will begin to make sense.

FYI – in case you didn’t catch them earlier, here are the video clips that we watched in class last week. 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

Hon Chemistry 1-19-18 Spectroscopy Lab, Pt. 3

Hon Chemistry: Oh you know, just analyzing the emission spectra of excited gases…

Thanks for test driving the new lab with me! Don’t feel like your results on the Emission Spectra of Elements lab have to be perfect! (And yes, I do realize who I’m talking to!!) If you need another look at the results – here’s a not perfect, but do-able solution!
