CHEMISTRY: Wow! There’s a ton of interesting and important stuff to know about the elements! To make things a bit easier for you, I’ve consolidated the notes on each block into three separate vodcasts. Don’t forget to pay close attention to properties (physical & chemical), occurrence, and uses.
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: the nitrogen cycle, the role of transition metals in gemstones (know colors and elements), the role of transition metals in alloys (know names, elements and uses), where the phrase “mad as a hatter” comes from, and the symptoms of mercury poisoning and why you should be careful if you eat a lot of fish. Check out the Chapter 5 Stuff to Know sheet for more.

I think the Poetry Project is a cool way to learn about elements.
Is the extra credit due friday just a normal Science in the News?
Cayla – Yes!
does the science in the new have to be over anything specific?
Garrett – Any STEM topic is okay.
It makes it alot easier to study and re-watch them now!! Thanks (:
Thank you this is a big help!
Is there going to be a help session for the next test?
Will you reset my password for glog
Cornelia – I reset you password to what I told you in class today. Let me know if it works. By the way – make sure you are on edu.glogster.com and not the regular glogster.com!
