Remember, I will NOT be communicating here with you after this week. Instead, I’ll do that on Course Sites, the location where our class can be found.
This weekend, please work on your atomic theory webquest so you have good notes for us to talk about Monday. You might want to try a few isotope questions on your practice packet to reinforce what we learned in class. Refer to the previous post regarding registering for Quest. You can certainly register and begin your unit homework. I have to approve you to be in the class but will be watching during the weekend to do so.
Thanks for a great start to school – I look forward to working with you this semester!
Honors chemistry students, each of you has access to my online class at https://www.coursesites.com/webapps/Bb-sites-course-creation-BBLEARN/pages/index.html In this online resource, you will find a wealth of resources. Be sure that you use this to your full advantage to supplement what we learn in class. Also refer to the calendar for honors at the top of this page. I provided each of you with your log-in for CourseSites in class. Parents, ask your student for the log-in code. Each unit, you will have a literacy assignment on CourseSites to perform and submit online that counts toward your grade.
Now that you have access to Course Sites, that is where to find my blog. I will post announcements there. Please check DAILY.
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 Wednesday, August 1!
