Hon Chemistry 10-25-17 Oxidation Numbers & Help Session

HON CHEMISTRY: So how are the chemical formulas and chemical names coming? With oxidation numbers, you now have a few guidelines to help polish up what you already know!

And don’t forget to add one more thing to your “make sure you memorize for the test” list: polyatomic ions, chemical names and formulas for common substances, binary acids, oxyacids, prefixes, and from today oxidation rules. Oxidation rules! We’ve really already been using oxidation numbers, you just didn’t know it! 🙂

But does it all matter? These complicated rules about naming compounds, I mean. Let’s find out tomorrow in lab!

  1. This week has been mainly a triumph for me. While I still find certain aspects of writing chemical formulas and names to be difficult, I did well on my test and understand what I missed. Also, Matty and I had fun working on the lab today and, in my opinion, managed time and followed directions well. I think practicing during a help session would really help me apply the tools from chapter seven more efficiently.

  2. This week I would rate myself a 3/5. My partner and I did finished our lab and also enjoyed it. On the other hand, my test grade wasn’t as high as I wanted, so I’m going to work even harder for the next test!

  3. This week I would rate myself a 4/5. At the beginning of the week, I was confused about writing chemical formulas, but I reviewed it and I am no longer confused. However, I was very lazy this week, and I fell a little behind when I only tried to do the bare minimum instead of trying to stay on top of things.

  4. I would give myself a 4/5 for this week. My lab partner and I did really well doing our lab and hopefully that will transfer into the lab write-ups too. I feel like I have triumphed this week because I genuinely understand the naming rules and why it works like it does, I just need to remember to check for metalloids and nonmetals or two nonmetals to make sure I name it correctly. I did great on my memorization quiz and now hopefully I’ll do just as good memorize all of the other memorization stuff as well.

  5. This week I would rate myself a 4/5. Cassie and I successfully finished our lab and I did well on the test. At first I understood chemical formulas very well but now I’m starting to get a little confused. (help session??) Other than that, I stayed on top of everything this week!

  6. A triumph for this week was the lab, which my partner and I easily completed and had a good time. The only downside to the week was I was confused at first and I made some stupid mistakes on my test and I could have a really great grade. All in all it was a pretty ok-ish week 😛

  7. This week I had many triumphs. I did good on my test and also Galin and I finished the lab with no problem. I am struggling with chapter 7 a little but I’ll figure it out.

  8. I would rate myself 3/5 because I keep forgetting to check the website and the syllabus. Consequently, I keep forgetting to do assignments until the last minute. Otherwise, I have been fine.

  9. This week I struggled with remembering to do my homework. I didn’t check the syllabus as much as I should have. But I successfully completed my lab and had fun.

  10. This week I rate myself a 4/5. I did well on the test and was able to complete the lab without a problem. I still struggle with naming chemical formulas, but i seem to get better with practice.

  11. I give myself a 4/5 for completing all of my homework and finishing the lab in the allotted time. Im beginning to understand the different types of compounds and naming them also.

  12. I would rate myself a 2.7/5 this week because I understand the general concept of oxidation numbers. A struggle I had was calculating the oxidation numbers.

  13. I think this week had many triumps. I’m starting to understand writing chemical formulas better and the lab went well.
