Chemistry Computer Lab Assignment 9-11-12

Hey Guys! Here are the instructions for today. First, you will be doing a graphing activity (the instructions are below.) Then, after you are finished, I want to you to explore some of the links that will be a great help to you on the test.

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 make a web post. Click on “Check Your Answers.” If you have 100% accuracy, print off your exam and bring it to me to check. Your answers must match exactly to receive credit. (Sometimes being exactly correct is important!)

4. When you have received a 100 on your Graphing Exercise, explore these links to great helps for the test!

Go the Edline, open the Chemistry class page, click on Tests in the right column, and check out the two review sheets on chapter 2. Great info!!!

Online Textbook: There are wonderful Interactive Review Games with your online text. First open chapter 2. Then click on the the Student Premium tab, then Interactive Review Games. There are games like Millionaire, Bootcamp, and Pyramid that quiz you with questions just like the ones I’ll give you on the test. See how high you can get your score!!

sciencegeek.net has great interactive quizzes with questions like I’ll ask on the test. Find the unit that corresponds to the topics we’ve been studying and begin to quiz yourself. There are answers, too!

Have fun!!

Graphing Exercise

Hey Guys! I neglected to give you the first part of the instructions to find the Graphing Exercise when I put the instructions on your syllabus. Here is what the first part should have said:

Go to the graph link on Edline (it’s in the Contents section) or on the chemistry website (it’s on the Graphing Helps link under Chemistry Tutorials”) and review the instructions on constructing a line graph. Next, at the bottom left of the page, click on the link to “Practice for Graphing and Interpreting Data.” Review the notes on Scientific Graphs.

Now, you can continue the instructions on your syllabus. BTW – notes on making paper graphs and graphs on Excel are on that page also. Holler if you have any questions.
