Unit 6: Stoichiometry!!!

Hi All,

Unit 6 is the pivotal unit of the year. Stoichiometry allows us to do real world chemistry problems and we will continue down this road for a good portion of the rest of our time together. Unit 6 puts it all together!

Unit 4: Balancing Equations

Hi Everybody,

Hope all is well as we continue through some of the foundational pieces of chemistry. Balancing equations is not one of those things you can kind of gloss over, we will be doing it from now on. I have some web resources for you as well as all the class materials. Make sure if you don’t “get” this stuff to see me asap.

Here is a chapter from our text on this stuff: aw-chemistry-chapter-08

Unit 3: Atoms, Ionics, and Moleculars

Hi Again,

Unit 3 is the foundation we will build on for the rest of the year. We have talked about atoms and their parts, the periodic table and a lot of nomenclature. Nomenclature is how we name the chemicals we will be using for the rest of the year and how we make figure out chemical formulas from their names.  We need to make sure we are very proficient at this stuff as it will affect every thing else we do from now on. To help you on your way I have some things that might help:

Welcome to Chemistry 2018-19!

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to get things started for the year. We have lots to do and hopefully you will enjoy the trip. If you missed our opening talks, or have misplaced the sheet with all our important classroom information or the class safety contract you can download one here

 

New safety contract

 

I’m looking forward to the new year and I hope you are also. Parents, check out the welcome page, don’t forget open house on Aug. 22rd, and don’t worry.  I don’t think we’ll blow anyone up this year. Students, get ready, this year will be nothing like you expect (and I think that is good).

See ya!

Unit 1! Here we go!

Don’t forget that Unit 1 consists of two main things:

1) Physical vs. chemical changes and properties:

2) The 4 types of matter

If you need another of our overviews you can get that below
