Chemistry – Chapter 8 Test Info & Help Session for 5-11-20

CHEMISTRY: It was great to see you today! Here is our overview of the test on chapter 8. It will be open on PowerSchool Learning Tuesday Chemfrom 10:00 A.M. until 2:00 P.M. You can have up to 90 minutes to take the test. Very important thing we talked about – the format of the test. Good stuff to know!

God bless you as you study! I’ll be praying for you!!

Chemistry – Remote LAB: Chemical Reactions 5-6-20

CHEMISTRY: What a great lab today! And great test overview and review. It was sooooooo good to see you!!

Here is the video from the remote lab today. There is no formal lab report. Watch the video and you’ll hear how you turn in the “lab report.” Listen carefully!

Also really important today was a look at the test. Listen for that as well. We’ll have one more help session this coming Monday. Let me know if you’d like to meet again before then.

Chemistry – Activity Series & Practice for 5/5/20

CHEMISTRY: So guess what happens when a gummy bear falls into a test tube of molten potassium chlorate?! Click on the video below to find out! Do you reckon that it’s a physical change or a chemical change? Why do you think?

Here’s the lesson for today. The first 26 minutes is the notes on using balanced equations and the activity series. This is great stuff to know for the test!. The last few minutes is practice balancing equations and info on the test.

Practice, practice, practice balancing equations! Need more practice? Zoom help session next Monday morning, 11:00 A.M. Want one before then? Just let me know and I’ll schedule one!I’m praying for you as you prepare for the test!!

Chemistry – Your LAST Web Post Comment!!

Can you believe it?!? This is your LAST web post comment!! This is where you put it and here are the three things I want you to talk about:

1) How did chemistry grow you? What did you learn about yourself?
2) What advice do you have for future chemistry students?
3) What could we have done different this year that would have helped you learn chemistry better?

Can’t wait to hear from you!! πŸ™‚

Chemistry – Types of Chemical Reactions for 5/4/20

CHEMISTRY: So maybe balancing equations isn’t exactly like this, but…..

Here are the notes on the types of chemical reactions, but first we begin with hints for balancing equations. How are you doing with them?

The lesson is below but to get you started, here’s a link to the “blue flame thrower” video I was talking about in the lesson the other day. What happens when diethylzinc is exposed to air? Click here to watch. Good stuff! Blue Flame Thrower

Chemistry – Describing Chemical Reactions for 4/28/20

CHEMISTRY: So you learned last semester how to determine if a chemical reaction has taken place. How would you go about describing a chemical reaction to someone? Here’s the discussion on writing balanced chemical equations!

First step in writing equations? Make sure you can write chemical formulas! First step to that? Practice!! Chemical formula quiz Thursday! The quiz will have writing and naming chemical formulas with monatomic ions, polyatomic ions, and will also have acids. It will be open notes.

So tell me again – how do you know if a chemical reaction has occurred?

Chemistry – Remote LAB: Evidence of Chemical Change

CHEMISTRY: Great, great lab today! Not as good as if you had done it yourself, but a pretty substitute. Did you hear the pop?

Here are the videos from the remote lab today. The first one is the video from my phone – it might be best for lab photos. The second one is the Zoom recording from my laptop. Let me know which one you prefer!

Don’t forget to take cropped screen shots from the video for your lab report. Formal lab report. Check the syllabus for the due date. Holler if you have questions!
