Pre-Course Assignments

As you know, Harrison has pre-course assignments for most academic classes. Chemistry Pre-Course

You will need a good scientific calculator for this course and the knowledge of how to use it properly. It is not necessary to have a graphing calculator but you can use that if you already own one.

Be sure to give yourself enough time to prepare for class so that YOU are successful. There will be an in-class quiz over the 30 listed elements and symbols as well as a safety quiz. There is one on-line quiz to take about math concepts. Some of the content regarding protons, electrons, and neutrons will also be on the first test. See you on Thursday, January 4!

Appreciation :-)

Thank you for a great semester! I hope that you learned to think for yourselves, to read questions carefully for information, and how to analyze and that you will carry this learning experience with you as you progress to future science courses. I hope that you and your families have a wonderful break and that you return rested and re-energized ready to take on Semester 2!

Two and a Half Weeks Remain….

We have two and a half weeks remaining in the semester. It is imperative that you put your best foot forward on each assignment. Please go ahead and review your polyatomics so that you are not caught unaware.

Monday, December 4, is a 5 question multiple choice quiz about molarity and dilution. The calculations you did for your Making a Solution lab are examples. Please solve more problems in preparation. There is a Quest assignment for this unit. Perhaps working some of those problems would be a good idea.

On Monday, we will also learn about solution stoichiometry. The Prep of a Solution lab will be conducted on Thursday, Dec 7. Your Dissolving Sugar labs that you finished today are due on Tuesday, 12/5. We will also begin learning about acids and bases.

Tuesday and Wednesday, we will learn about pH and associated equations and titrations.

On Friday, Dec 8, we will conduct a lab about colligative properties. We will also have the pH quiz to give another grade in the category before exemption forms are due.

On Monday, 12/11, we’ll review the pH quiz and do a little SLO review and problem solving.

Tuesday, 12/12, we have a titration quiz. Then we will conduct a virtual titration.

The SLO occurs on Wednesday, 12/13. It counts 4% of the semester grade. After the SLO, you can work on labs in class.

On Thursday, we’ll review the pH and titration quizzes and review for the test which occurs on Friday, 12/15. The UT Quest is due Thursday, 12/14, at midnight.

On Monday, 12/18, there will be an extra credit cumulative quiz opportunity available which includes acid/base, solutions, thermo, reactions, stoichiometry, and formula writing. It is completely optional. We will also answer questions from the final exam review available here on Course Sites.

Final exam for 1st and 2nd periods is on Tuesday, December 19, and the final exam for 4th period will occur on Wednesday, December 20.
