HON CHEMISTRY – Wow! Do you realize what we just did?!? We finished the chapter!!! Here’s the last lecture from chapter 1 – an overview of the elements and intro to the periodic table. Did you feel like it was mostly review?
Now for the element handbook search! You will be responsible for that information – both search 1 & 2, on the test. On the first part, tell enough to show what distinguishes that element as the type that it is, and also anything particularly unusual about the element, but don’t go into minute detail – just the main facts.
Another great resource for the Element Handbook Search (and for the TEST!!) are these video clips on copper, phosphorus, and silicon that a group of chemistry researchers have put together at www.periodicvideos.com. Watch these as you do the element handbook search. The information on these video clips will be on the test.
Hey, have you had a chance to check out the chapter 1 study suggestion sheet? Let me know if there is anything you need help with before the test! (And you’re still learning the symbols of the elements, right?!?)
