Chemistry 5-6-21 Chapters 3A & 21 Problems Review

CHEMISTRY: God bless you as you practice for the test. Friday’s short test is only chapter 3a. Monday’s short test is only chapter 29.

Use the Chapter 3A and the 21 Stuff to Know sheet as a guide for what you are memorizing and practicing.

Here is the review of the problems from today. Bottom line? Memorize everything and practice everything! And did I mention, PRACTICE!! God bless you! I’ll be praying!!

Chemistry 5-5-21 Nuclear Decay – The Physics Classroom Practice

CHEMISTRY: Today you’ll be practicing nuculear decay equations at The Physics Classroom.

Do the Apprentice, Master, and Wizard levels of the Concept Builder called Nuclear Decay. If you don’t finish in class, the rest of the assignment is for homework and is due at 8:00 A.M. Friday morning.

Be sure and write the equations for Level 3 on notebook paper. It will take you tons more time if you try to do it in your head!!

Chemistry 5-3-21 Chapters 3A & 21 Test Overview

CHEMISTRY: God bless you as you practice for the test. Friday will be here before you know it, so be careful and don’t take the test for granted! Use the Chapter 3A and the 21 Stuff to Know sheet as a guide for what you are memorizing and practicing.

Here is the test overview from today. Bottom line? Memorize everything and practice everything! And did I mention, PRACTICE!! God bless you! I’ll be praying!!

Chemistry 4-30-21 Applications of Radioactivity, Pt. 3 and Fission & Fusion

CHEMISTRY: We did it! Here is laaaaassst set of notes on chapter 21. If you have been absent, be sure and watch the vodcasts – we talked about information that isn’t in the textbook and also there’s a lot of good practice!!

Are you ready for the test? The test will be next Friday, May 7. Be careful and don’t take the test for granted! Make sure you got a copy of the Chapter 3A and the 21 Stuff to Know & Study Suggestions sheet to help you get organized as you study.

Memorize everything and practice everything! And did I mention, PRACTICE!! God bless you! I’ll be praying!!

Chemistry 4-29-21 Applications of Radioactivity, Pt. 2

CHEMISTRY: Hey guys! Here’s our discussion from Thursday. The Lord willing, we’ll finish the chapter tomorrow. Also, don’t forget two special things due tomorrow!

Have you started studying? The test will be next Friday, May 7. Be careful and don’t take the test for granted! And don’t forget to check out the the Chapter 21 Stuff to Know & sheet.

Make sure you keep practicing half-life problems and nuclear equations. Also, make sure you’ve memorize the nuclear symbols for alpha particles, beta particles, positrons, neutrons, and protons. And then there are tons of notes on the conceptual stuff. Properties of radioactivity, people, types of radioactive decay, applications of radioactivity, definitions, definitions, and definitions!

Chemistry 4-28-21 Applications of Radioactivity, Pt. 1

CHEMISTRY: Radioactivity all around! Here’s the lecture from Wednesday, the first part of our discussion on the applications of radioactive isotopes. We’ll finish more applications tomorrow.

IMPORTANT: Don’t forget about the Half Life lab! Scroll down to find the post for your class and for more information. Data is due when? Where? Check the post and the syllabus for info!

Chemistry 4-26-21 Half Life

CHEMISTRY: Have these banana’s been through too many half lives for you?? Great job thinking through the half-life problems! Be sure and practice, practice, practice! They aren’t super difficult, but if you don’t practice, you’ll be as lost as a ball in high weeds!!

What about the Half Life thLab? Now may be the time to get started since this week will be a busy week! Be sure and read the lab ahead of time so you’ll be prepared with the materials you need. Also, be sure and check out the post where you’ll put your results!

1st Period Chem Half-Life Simulation Lab

Hey guys – this is where 1st Period Chemistry posts results for the Half-Life Simulation lab. You’ll just list your data from the first data table as a comment – just like you comment every week, except this time you are just listing the data from the first data table.

Don’t forget that your results must be posted by Friday, April 30, 8:00 A.M. The lab report is due by 8:00 A.M. on Friday, May 7 – save as a PDF to both your Google Drive Chemistry Shared folder AND turnitin.com.

Remember, you don’t have to use candies; you may use coins or anything else that has two sides. Please note that you are to post the number of “radioactive” nuclides remaining after each toss.

Just to clarify, everything on the lab sheets will go in your lab report on that you will post on Google Drive: Title, Objective, Procedure, Observations (with data table), Conclusion, and Questions. Don’t forget that your graph needs to be either a full page graph that you do on Excel or a similar program, or you can draw a full page graph on graph paper, scan a very clean, sharp copy and copy it into your lab report. And don’t forget that the analysis questions, calculations, graph, etc., go after your conclusion.

Happy counting – and wait until AFTER the lab to snack!! 🙂
