Hon Chemistry 9-23-13 Classification of Matter, Pt. 2

HON CHEMISTRY: Happy Monday! Have you gotten used to the lady on the virtual lab? πŸ™‚ Make sure you use the vLAB sheets here on the website, NOT the ones that come with the online textbook.

Here is the rest of the lecture on the classification of matter. How are you doing on the examples of homogeneous and heterogeneous matter? Here’s a question to think about, can you tell me three different types of homogeneous matter?

And no, it’s not a still, but it is copper and I thought it looked kind of cool!

Physics 9-23-13 Angular Projectile Motion

PHYSICS – I missed you today! How’d you do with the virtual me? Here’s the vodcast that you watched on angular projectile motion – well, a lot of homework review and then angular projectile motion.

The number one thing to remember – Never use the resultant velocity to do more than find the vertical and horizontal components! And vertical is vertical, horizontal is horizontal and don’t ever mix the two!

Chemistry 9-23-13 Changes in Phase

CHEMISTRY: Wow! Don’t you love homecoming week! Here’s the super short review of the changes of states/phases of matter. Btw – how’d you do on the symbols quiz today? Are you ready for one tomorrow…or the next day?

Oh, and don’t forget to get a candle and piece of clay from me for the thLab: Candle Observation. You’ll write that one on the lab sheet and turn it in in class.

Chemistry 9-20-13 Intro to Chemistry

CHEMISTRY: We’re finally starting what chemistry is all about! Here’s the lecture from Friday on the intro to chemistry. Can you apply the branches of chemistry and types of scientific work? As you go through the chapter, make sure you have the vocab down, and be sure you’re able to apply what you learned each day.

BTW – Have you started learning the symbols of the elements? Is that something you’ve had to do in your other classes? Don’t forget to check out the earlier webpost on quizlet.com. It’s a great way to begin memorizing them! πŸ™‚

Element Symbols Practice Quiz

Hey guys, how are you doing on memorizing the symbols of the elements? Here’s a great study aid from quizlet.com. In the bottom right corner, click on “Choose a Study Mode” and you can change the layout and study different ways. If you already know them, try “Learn.” If you are just beginning to learn the symbols, I’d try “Scatter,” then go to quizlet.com (or click on the bottom left where it says “Study these flash cards”) and try “Space and Race.” I LOVE that game. It really puts your brain in gear and is great practice!

BTW – There’s an app for that! Quizlet has an app, also Oresome Elements and Mahjong Chem are good apps for learning the symbols of the elements. And I’ll bet if you look, you can also find other apps to help you learn the elements.

Good luck learning them – and don’t forget, the elements you have to know are the elements with these atomic numbers: 1 – 58, 60, 61, 74, 76 – 95.


Hon Chemistry 9-20-13 Concervation & Classification of Matter

HON CHEMISTRY: Happy Friday! The law of conservation of energy, endothermic/exothermic, and potential and kinetic energy . . . How much of it can you find in bungee jumping? πŸ™‚

And who knew there were so many questions you could ask about matter? Let’s finish up on Monday!

Physics 9-19-13 Component Vector Addition – Practice

PHYSICS: I do believe you are well on your way to conquering the component method of vector addition. Good job! Pay careful attention to the smallest details – it can make a huge difference.

Need some guided practice with the component method? Here’s a vodcast just for you!

Physics 9-17-13 Component Method of Vector Addition

PHYSICS – Great job today!! You conquered the graphical method of vector addition, you are also going to do a great job with the component method. Give yourself a chance to get used to it and it will click, I promise!

Hon Chemistry 9-16-13 Matter and Its Properties

HON CHEMISTRY – Physical properties, states of matter, chemical properties – was it mostly review for you?? You may want to go back over the solid, liquid, gas stuff!

Make sure you have the vocab down, and for sure, be able to apply what you learned today. Can you tell the difference between quantitative and qualitative properties, intensive and extensive properties, physical and chemical changes, etc.?

Good luck studying for the symbols quiz tomorrow! Have you tried quizlet.com? Check out the one done by A Sparkman!
