Hon Chemistry 10-19-20 Elements & Intro to the Periodic Table

HON CHEMISTRY – Wow! Do you realize what we just did?!? We finished the chapter!!! Did you feel like today was mostly review?

A great resource to research the elements Cu, Si and P (for the TEST!!) are these video clips on copper, phosphorus, and silicon that a group of chemistry researchers have put together at www.periodicvideos.com. Watch these and take notes. The information on these video clips will be on the test.

Hey, have you had a chance to check out the chapter 1 study suggestion sheet? Let me know if there is anything you need help with before the test! (And you’re still learning the symbols of the elements, right?!?)

Hon Chemistry 10-13-21 Classification of Matter

HON CHEMISTRY: Happy Wednesday! Great job today on asking questions to classify matter! How are you doing on the examples of homogeneous and heterogeneous matter? Here’s a question to think about again, can you tell me three different types of homogeneous matter?

And no, this isn’t part of a moonshine still, but it is copper and I thought it looked kind of cool! Speaking of….why do you think they use copper coil in stills??

Chemistry 10-12-21 Graphing Exercise 1

CHEMISTRY: Today you will begin Graphing Exercise 1. Don’t forget if you get stuck, you can always go back and check the EXCEL Online Graphs Tutorial handout or watch the vodcast from last Thursday.

Here are the instructions for Tuesday – (You are going to be dreaming about graphs!!)

IMPORTANT: A rough draft of your first graph (graph J) is due tomorrow by class time. The entire assignment must be submitted by this coming Monday, October 18, 8:00 A.M.

FIRST: You will be doing Exercise 1 with Excel Online. Students can use this for free! Your first step is to go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/products/office to sign up for a free Office 365 account with your school email and get FREE access to Microsoft Office products. Using Excel online, you can do this assignment at school or at home and access it with your own computer, tablet, phone, etc.

FOR TODAY: Click below for the files you need for today. You can also find these handouts under the Worksheet tab.

Chemistry 10-7-21 Graphing with Spreadsheets

CHEMISTRY: Today you are going to learn (or review) how to make graphs using Excel Online.

Here’s the recording from class today. If you were absent, you need to watch the vodcast and make a sample graph along with the recording. If you were in class on Thursday, you’re all good – there is nothing else for you to turn in.

FIRST: You will be doing Exercise 1 with Excel Online. Students can use this for free! Your first step is to go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/products/office to sign up for a free Office 365 account with your school email and get FREE access to Microsoft Office products.

Physics 10-5-21 More Angular Projectiles & the Monkey-Hunter Problem

PHYSICS – Great job today working through the monkey-hunter problem!

Do the problems make more sense now?Now go and tackle #36. Don’t give up on it. It’s tough, but you can do it!

If you need some inspiration – here are links to some Monkey-Hunter videos

Chemistry 10-5-21 Fundamental Science Skills Graphing Activity

Quick – list 10 things you remember from the 8th grade about interpreting and reading graphs! Not to worry – today you’re going to begin reviewing those important concepts and techniques. Here is your assignment for today, Tuesday:

IMPORTANT: Today’s assignment is one that you will have to complete at school. The program is on the school laptops and on the computers in the computer lab.

  1. Find the “Fundamental Science Skills” program on your computer.
  2. In the Graphing Skills section, click on “Graphing Data Points.” Read through and practice in each section VERY CAREFULLY!
  3. After you have completed each review section, go to the exam and complete it.
    • You must enter your name in the exact format you do when you title a lab – including the title of the activity.
    • Click on “Check Your Answers.” When you have 100% accuracy, bring your lap top to me to check your Check Answers Results Sheet. If you are doing the assignment outside of our class period, print off your exam results sheet and bring it to me to check.
    • IMPORTANT: Your answers and the format of it all must match exactly to receive credit. (Sometimes being exactly correct is extremely important!)
  4. The Graphing Data Points assignment is due by the end of the class period today.
  5. When you finish, next go to the Worksheet Tab and begin Graphing Exercises 2.

Holler if you have any questions!

Hon Chemistry 10-4-21 Writing Formal Lab Reports

HON CHEMISTRY: Awesome job today beginning to write your first digital lab reports. Be sure and follow very carefully the directions in the Lab Manuscript Form handout. If you need another copy, it’s under the lab tab. Everything in that handout is an important guideline for writing your lab report.

For an overview of your workflow as you write up labs, be sure and check out the Lab Report Turn In Info sheet under the Lab tab.

Physics 10-4-21 Angular Projectile Problems

PHYSICS – Great work today for a Monday! I love the way you are thinking through the angular projectile homework problems. We looked at #35 – the kicked football, and #62 – the accelerating rocket. Also did a bit of a heads up on #59 – jumping on Earth and Mars.

UPDATE: For tomorrow, add this monkey/zookeeper problem below to the 2D Motion Worksheet:

A zookeeper finds an escaped monkey hanging from a light pole. Aiming her tranquilizer gun at the monkey, she kneels 10.0 m from the light pole, which is 5.00 m high. The tip of her gun is 1.00 m above the ground. At the same moment that the monkey drops a banana, the zookeeper shoots. If the dart travels at 50.0 m/s, will the dart hit the monkey, the banana, or neither one?
