Science Exams First Thing Friday – December 18

God bless you as you study for your chemistry, honors chemistry, and physics exams! How are you studying? Best advice? Practice, practice, PRACTICE! Be active in studying – don’t just read over the material. Review games on the online textbook, reworking old homework problems, re-working those flash cards you’ve made – all good. Watching vodcasts of old lectures might not hurt either!

Exam Help Session Friday morning, 7:20ish A.M. EXAM ROOM ASSIGNMENTS are listed below.

IMPORTANT – Bring your textbook (and book fines) and your exam review packet to the chemistry room before you go to your exam room!

Here are the room assignments for Friday’s exam:

Hon Chemistry 4 Rm. 301 (Ms. DeFrehn’s room)
Chemistry 2 Rm. 302 (Mr. Wilson’s room)
Chemistry 3 Rm. 303 (Mrs. Tapp’s room)
Chemistry 6 Rm. 304 (Coach Henderson’s room)
Chemistry 7 Rm. 135 (Mrs. Pereira’s room)
Physics Rm. 136 (Ms. Watson’s room)

Don’t forget to bring your completed exam review packets when you come on Friday. Click below for a copy, if you need it. I’m praying for you!!

Chemistry 12-9-15 Chapter 3 Overview & Practice

CHEMISTRY: God bless you as you study for your test! Here’s the overview of the test from today AND the vodcast below that is the help session from this morning.

Have you checked out the Chapter 3A Study Suggestion sheet on Edline? Great way to make sure you’ve covered everything!

Also, don’t forget about the video clips that I want you to watch if you didn’t see them in class – it’s a great way to review the scientists from the chapter and their experiments. Click here for the video on the Cathode Ray Tube Experiment that Thompson did, and also for the video clips that I want you to watch on The Discovery of the Electron and The Discovery of the Nucleus. All of these will be great tools in studying for the test!

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!

Physics 12-7-15 Impulse-Momentum Theorem

PHYSICS So that’s why you need good running shoes! Here’s the lecture on the intro to momentum and the impulse-momentum theorem. Did you understand the relationship between force and time? Let’s see if you can put it to practice tomorrow!

Have you looked at the syllabus? It may be really important – especially as pertains to future endeavors! πŸ™‚

Chemistry 12-7-15 Homework Review

CHEMISTRY: Here’s our very brief look at last night’s homework. How are you doing on writing and interpreting isotope symbols? What about the average atomic mass problems?

If you could used some extra practice on these or on writing and naming chemical formulas, HELP SESSION Wednesday morning, 7:20ish A.M It would be great practice for the test on Thursday!

Chemistry 12-7-15 Isotopes & Average Atomic Mass

CHEMISTRY: Isn’t God awesome to give us minds to understand the world around us – even the parts we can’t see!

Here’s the lecture from Monday on isotopes and average atomic mass. It’s the last lecture for this chapter – and for this year!! Be sure and make the change to your HW – add #11 and change the directions to say “Write BOTH the hyphen notation AND nuclear symbol for each of the following.”

Don’t forget your sock and can and at least 3 or more different items in it for the lab tomorrow. Speaking of labs, last make-up labs will be tomorrow, Tuesday, morning, 7:20ish and this Thursday afternoon at 3:40.

How are you doing on writing nuclear symbols? Also make sure you can use them to determine the number of protons, neutrons, electrons, etc., AND be sure you can use the formula to find average atomic mass! Happy calculating on the problems for tonight.

Can you believe atoms are that small – and the nucleus even waaaaaay smaller! The thumbnail is a picture of atoms from the IBM Almaden Research Center. These are iron atoms on top of copper. Being able to move atoms around like this was a giant leap in the field of nanotechnology! (Sorry about that, bad pun! πŸ™‚ )

Chemistry 12-4-15 Structure of the Atom

CHEMISTRY – Chocolate chip cookie dough model of the atom? Here’s the lecture from Friday on how scientists began to determine the structure of the atom and the existence of subatomic particles. For each, make sure you know the name of the scientists, the name of their experiments, be able to draw a diagram of their experiment, and describe how they interpreted the experimental results that led to their discoveries. Wow, that’s a mouthful!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you were not in class today, Friday, you must watch this vodcast to get the notes from this section!!

Also, here are some video clips that I want everyone to watch that will help you understand the lesson from today. Click here for the video on the Cathode Ray Tube Experiment that Thompson did, and also for the video clips that I want you to watch on The Discovery of the Electron and The Discovery of the Nucleus. All of these will be great tools in studying for the test!

Chemistry 12-2-15 Intro to Atomic Theory

CHEMISTRY: So how do you feel about being made from earth, air, water, and fire? Here’s the very short intro we did on how we ended up with the atomic theory. Had you ever heard of Lavosier, Proust, and Dalton?

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you were not in class today, Wednesday, you need to do the in class assignment that we did together in class. The instructions for it are towards the beginning of the vodcast. Follow along just like you were in class. Use the online textbook to write Dalton’s Atomic Theory, and then write the Modern Atomic Theory and compare and contract it with Dalton as you go through the vodcast.

Any questions about the Sock & Can Model of the Atom? You need to bring to class TUESDAY a cleaned, empty can like a soup can, etc. It cannot be glass, plastic, or a soft drink can. In the can, place 3 or more random items from your house. Put the can and items into a long sock – the sock must be long enough so that at least six inches or so is left over the top of the can. Tape any sharp edges around your can!! Due Tuesday!!!
