Hon Chemistry 12-6-11 Applications of Radioactivity

HON CHEMISTRY: Hmmmmm…..so what do you do when you forget to upload the day’s lesson to blip.tv? You post an old lecture from another year! This actually might turn out to be a good thing – the beginning of this old lecture has some half-life problems practice that might turn out to be useful for you. As for the rest – it doesn’t have everything, but it does have most of the applications that we talked about today in class.

So it turns out there are some pretty useful applications of radioactivity! Let’s finish talking about fission and fusion tomorrow, okay? Oh, and help session tomorrow morning, 7:15ish A.M.

Chemistry Help Session Wednesday Morning, 7:15ish A.M.

CHEMISTRY: Good luck studying for your test! Do you need any extra practice? Help session tomorrow morning at 7:15ish.

Have you checked out the study suggestion sheet on Edline? Chapter 3 Study Suggestions 2011

Worst thing you can do? Just read over your notes – even if you do it a million times. Best thing to do? Practice! Take your notes and make practice test questions with different colored highlighters. Practice the memorization by making quizzes for yourself. Practice working the average atomic mass problems, practice using isotope symbols to find protons, neutrons, electrons, AND practice writing and naming chemical formulas! Good luck studying – I’ll be praying for you!
