Chemistry 10-20-21 Chemical Properties & Changes & Energy

CHEMISTRY: So how do you know if something is a physical or a chemical change? Applications, applications! Make sure you can apply what you learned today. Ditto on the law of conservation of mass.

Don’t forget that we will do the thLab: Candle Observation in class tomorrow. Make sure you get a printed copy!

Physics 10-19-21 Newton’s Law of Inertia

PHYSICS: Remind me again why didn’t that pen go flying across the room instead of dropping into the bottle? Hmmm…..

So what do you reckon is the inertia of this car? Great start today relating mass to inertia! Now go forth and apply what you know to find the mass of your unknown!

Chemistry 10-19-21 Physical Properties & Changes

CHEMISTRY: So how do you know if something is a physical or a chemical change? Applications, applications! Make sure you can apply what you learned today!

Don’t forget that we’re changing the syllabus – we’re finishing notes on chemical properties and changes tomorrow, but still do the homework for tonight that’s on the syllabus – it’s review. Also, we’re moving the Observing a Candle activity to Thursday.

Chemistry 10-18-21 Intro to Chemistry

CHEMISTRY: We’re finally starting what chemistry is all about! Here’s the lesson from Monday. 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!

Now….how would you describe this copper ore? Let’s talk about that tomorrow!

Hon Chemistry 10-19-20 Elements & Intro to the Periodic Table

HON CHEMISTRY – Wow! Do you realize what we just did?!? We finished the chapter!!! Did you feel like today was mostly review?

A great resource to research the elements Cu, Si and P (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 and take notes. 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?!?)

Hon Chemistry 10-13-21 Classification of Matter

HON CHEMISTRY: Happy Wednesday! Great job today on asking questions to classify matter! How are you doing on the examples of homogeneous and heterogeneous matter? Here’s a question to think about again, can you tell me three different types of homogeneous matter?

And no, this isn’t part of a moonshine still, but it is copper and I thought it looked kind of cool! Speaking of….why do you think they use copper coil in stills??

Chemistry 10-12-21 Graphing Exercise 1

CHEMISTRY: Today you will begin Graphing Exercise 1. Don’t forget if you get stuck, you can always go back and check the EXCEL Online Graphs Tutorial handout or watch the vodcast from last Thursday.

Here are the instructions for Tuesday – (You are going to be dreaming about graphs!!)

IMPORTANT: A rough draft of your first graph (graph J) is due tomorrow by class time. The entire assignment must be submitted by this coming Monday, October 18, 8:00 A.M.

FIRST: You will be doing Exercise 1 with Excel Online. Students can use this for free! Your first step is to go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/products/office to sign up for a free Office 365 account with your school email and get FREE access to Microsoft Office products. Using Excel online, you can do this assignment at school or at home and access it with your own computer, tablet, phone, etc.

FOR TODAY: Click below for the files you need for today. You can also find these handouts under the Worksheet tab.
