DUE MONDAY 1/11: UPDATED 1/10 @ 7:13 PM- If you scroll down and see the problems assigned, one or two of them are on temperature conversions. As you read through the chapter, the book gives you a formula. In most texts and conversion charts, 1.8 is not used when converting from F temp to C temp....it's usually given as a fraction (9/5, which is the same as 1.8). I just wanted you to be aware. Here is a sheet that I was assigning for Monday night, but will go ahead and post. If you have trouble, I will try and do one in class tomorrow, but it could be Tuesday since we have the SLO pretest and have to finish the lab.
Original Post: Read the following sections in your new book: 1.1, 1.2 (through EXAMPLE 1.1). Another way to express formula for temp conversions: F temp= 9/5(C temp) +32 (*9/5=1.8 which is given in book) C temp= 5/9 (F temp-32) K temp= C temp+273
Know metric prefixes p. 8. Be able to convert from one metric prefix to another metric prefix. Ex: 10 mg=1 cg (see table 1.3 p. 14)
Know Density formula p. 15 and be able to solve for density, mass and volume. Review this PPt. Then, do this sheet: Density problems
*Do these problems from p. 21-23: 1- Go over "Summary Problem" p. 21. A-F only 2- p. 22: # 2,4,6,8,10, 14, 15 (even # solutions in back of book)
Tuesday: Complete The Mole/ Mass sheet (back side) given yesterday. Next, do #5 (Mole/ Mole and Mole/ Mass Problems) above. Then, go to this website, watch the video (until around the 9:00 mark) and complete the following: Problem #1 and Problem #2 (may complete for HW). Again, stop at the 9:00 range on the video. Don't do the "Percent Yield" part of the video yet.
Monday and Tuesday, 4/18 and 4/19: I have assigned some practice tests/problems from www.usatestprep.com. It's been a while since we've used this resource, and seeing that the SLO is on 5/13, we need to do more of these to get ready. Two of the assignments ('Stoichiometry' and 'Stoich #2') must be done on Monday (20 questions total) and 3 assignments (all on 'Limiting Reagents') on Tuesday (around the same # of questions). The site doesn't allow me to pick the questions, so there may be a couple on solutions [Molarity (moles/L)], which we haven't covered yet. I will not penalize you if you get those questions wrong, but give them a try since the unit is upcoming. I allowed you to get a '2nd' try if you miss any of the questions. I have set a 'start' day and a 'deadline' for all of the assignments, so be sure to do them on the dates stated above. WORKSHEETS: How to Determine the Amount of Excess Reactant Mass- Volume Volume- Volume More Exciting Stoichiometry Problems Review Sheet #1- (Cody) Review Sheet #2- Also used for Magnet Review Daily Agenda PPt with tutorial links to solve problems Cody Key with final answers Here's an extra sheet I found in my files that has the calculations and answers at the end of the document (just in case you want to practice some more). FYI- be sure that you know your polyatomic ions!
UNIT 8- Thermo, Kinetics, Equilibrium: PPts posted above (scroll up) *Note- standard enthalpies are in Appendix 1 (p. 635 and 636) of the WHITE book
Websites to use- Day 1 of unit Specific Heat WS: Day 1 HW Sheet (if you have trouble with the last 3 questions, it should be cleared up tomorrow). Day 2- Enthaply and Stoichiometry Problems: Go to this site, look at the review problems and do the odd numbered problems (#1-9) on your own paper (final answers are given to check yourselves). Next, do WS #2- PE Diagram. Then, do 'Enthalpy Stoichiometry Worksheet' (#1-7 of the 10 problems). Wait until tomorrow to do # 8-10 and also wait to do #5, 7 and 8 of 'Enthalpy Stoich. Chem WS 16-3', since Dr. Cody isn't here today and I don't want to get too far ahead.
Watch these 'Chemguy' videos for a better understanding of Gas Laws (and just about any other topic in Chemistry you need to review). Just found them 'by accident' on the KentChemistry website. Short and succinct. Thinking you all will find them helpful. :)
PPt with pH calculations. More appropriate for AP Chem than 1st year Chem, but the request was made. We will only do base 10 this year (first couple of slides)
SLO TEST INFORMATION: 1-Post test is Monday, 5/16 in Room 146 2- Cell phones are encouraged to be left at home. However, if you have it, I must collect it before the Exam. MAKE SURE IT IS POWERED DOWN (meaning it's OFF). 3- Calculator Policy: You may use a 'basic' or 'scientific' calculator. No graphing calculators. I WILL NOT HAVE EXTRA CALCULATORS! YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE THE TEST WITHOUT ONE, if you bring a graphing calculator, or if you forget to bring one. No sharing of calculators! 4- Make sure you bring a pencil!
SLO REVIEW: SLO Practice Test #3: due Thurs 5/12 @11:59 PM SLO Practice Test #4: due by Sunday, 5/15 @11:59 PM. You must make a score of 80 (without a retry)! If you score below an 80, you must take ANOTHER test. A 'medium' test will suffice, but I suggest you take a 'domain' test. You should look at the 'breakdown' (analysis) of your test score and see which area (domain) you are not scoring well. Then, you can choose to take a test in that area (from a drop down menu). Be sure to pick my name from another drop down menu, so that you get credit for it! You are encouraged to take as many Practice Tests as you need!
Look over SLO Review Sheet #1 and #2. I will not take them up, but make sure you look over them and practice any problems needed. Video Reviews: 1-There are 3 videos in this series. Here is the link to one of them. 2- Another one from youtube. Didn't have time to view it, though. 3- I showed this in class Friday. It's intended for AP, so it goes into a little more depth than our course, but it covers molecular geometry, resonance and periodicity really well.
***REMINDER: SLO POST-TEST IS MONDAY 5/16 IN ROOM 146!!!
AFTER THE SLO: Here's my Daily Agenda Slide from 5/18 giving the links for solving Gas Stoich problems
ON LINE BOOK ACCESS for the (Blue) 'World of Chemistry' book: open my syllabus (above, top of this page) and use the access code provided at the top of the page. Note- a new code was provided by the company on 2/26/16. I deleted the former code and pasted the new one on the above syllabus today. Email me if you have any problems.

Go to www.usatestprep.com and join your class. Assignment soon! *UPDATE: 1st assignment due by 1/18.
We have a Facebook "Study" Group, if you would like to join. Search for 'Phillips Magnet Chemistry Spring 2016' and make a request to join (since it's a closed group). This is not mandatory! I usually 'pop-in' the night before the test and see if there are any last minute questions. A couple of Magnet Seniors are also administrators and usually always help, if you have questions during the week.

UPDATED 4/17-ABSENCE 4/18 & 4/19: Please read! I will be out due to my aunt's funeral. You must complete the sheets that I left for you. The sheets for 4/18 are on the table, ready for you to pick up. The 3 sheets for Tuesday are in a 'criss-crossed' stack (there are 2 stacks: get the ones on the left, and not the stack on the right ) toward the back of the 'Chem table'. The test for this unit will be THIS Thursday, 4/21.

ABSENCE 1/19- Student Instructions: 1. Pair up on the computers or use a laptop, if you have one. Dr. Cody may also have the laptop cart in his room, and if he does you can borrow (and return) one of those. If necessary, you can pair up on the computers, but you will have to notify me so that both people get credit. 2. Go to www.usatestprep.com. Log in and complete assignments by the end of class 3. Your test will be tomorrow (Wed 1/20)
