Chemistry 10-24-12 Oxidation Numbers

CHEMISTRY: One man’s rust is another student’s lesson in chemistry! From Wednesday – here’s the lecture on oxidation numbers. Now go out and apply them! Need help? Don’t forget the practice at Go to And don’t forget, help session Friday morning at 7:15ish A.M.

UPDATE: We are not doing the lab until Friday! My bad!! The lab write-up is Thursday night’s HW and is due on Friday. Sorry about that!!

Good luck studying for the polyatomic ion quiz on Friday, but is that good enough? What about the test Tuesday? For that you need to have memorized (and be able to use!!): polyatomic ions, monatomic ions (but you can get these off the periodic table), acids, prefixes, the chemical names and formulas of common substances, and the oxidation rules.

That’s a lot, but you can do it! And make double dog sure you are working hard at memorizing it all now!!

  1. Will we be able to look at the periodic table during the test or do we need to memorize what elements are in the groups?
