CHEMISTRY: Today you are going to learn (or review) how to make graphs using Excel Online.

Here are the instructions for Thursday. (You are going to be dreaming about graphs!!)

IMPORTANT: Your sample Excel graph must include a variable unit (either x or y) that has a superscript or a subscript in the unit. This is so you can practice doing this step. Your sample graph is due Monday by 8:00 A.M. Don’t forget that also Graphing Exercise 2 is due on Monday by 8:00 A.M.

FIRST: You will be making your sample graph with Excel Online. Students can use this for free! Your first step is to sign in to your Office 365 account. Click here to log in  (If you haven’t signed up for a free Office 365 account with your school email, STOP and do that first. Instructions are on this weeks syllabus.) 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: Today your assignment is to make a sample Excel graph that you will eventually turn in to your Chemistry Shared folder. Click below if you need the files you need for today. You can also find these handouts under the Worksheet tab.

  1. What I struggled with the most is my study habits. I study but I don’t study hard enough like I need too. I also get distracted by other things while studying. And these bad studying habits had lead me to make a bad grade on my test. So if I get my studying habits down I know I can do better on my test. I also struggled on my test to actually slow down and read the questions. I was thought I was doing so good and going to fast on the multiple choice that I actually missed them. Next time I need to slow down and take my time.

I find myself looking or asking someone what I should set the assignment name as.

  5. This week my struggle in chemistry had to do with time management on my test. I saw a lot of answers I could have gotten correct if I would have managed my time more wisely.

  7. One major struggle I had this week was understand how to use technology on a consistent basis. Sometimes, technology can be faulty and inconsistent because something you may need might not be there. This struggle is apparent on Tuesday’s and today’s lab when we had to work on the computers. Although technology was frustrating at first, I became to play around and luckily completed my assignments.

  11. This week I have struggled with staying focused in class and understanding directions quickly without having to ask others questions.
