One More Week!

One more week until Thanksgiving Break, but we will be busy!

As we have been talking about all week, Monday will be the re-quiz for the element quiz. I will average your first quiz grade with the re-quiz grade.

We are currently working on Ch 13 – Chemical Bonding. Please go online to re-watch the Tyler Dewitt videos we watched in class for a review (Valence Electrons and the Periodic Table & Ionic Bonding Introduction). We will be in 13.2 Ionic Bonding on Monday.

Remember our No Shave November Fund Raiser!
