Today we caught up on our ICE box problems. We then went to the computer lab to work on our research projects. You should be nearing the end of your information gathering phase. In two weeks you will need to be ready to start writing your script for the podcast episode.
Today we practiced some equilibrium problems where you will need to use an ICE table or ICE box to solve. ICE stands for Initial, Change Equilibrium. You will know a table requires an ICE box if the question refers to initial or original concentrations and then it reaches equilibrium. […]
Today we learned about what happens to Keq when you manipulate the chemical reaction. We found that if you reverse the equation, the new keq is the inverse of the original keq. We found if you multiply the equation by some factor (n), you must raise the keq to the power of […]
Today we wrote the organic chemistry exam. If you missed today’s class or chose not to write the exam you should complete your assignments (or at least the practice exam) and come in to write at 8:30 at your earliest opportunity. It is easy to fall behind in chemistry 30 as we move at […]
Today we did an individualized review of what you should know before we begin the equilibrium unit (prior knowledge from Physical Science 20). Independently students went through the review booklet (Review Prior to Equilibrium Student WM)and watched the videos from this playlist as needed. I encouraged students to only watch the videos […]
practice Exam Today we did a polymer lab where we created polymers. We also acted like polymers and discussed what happened as we got tangled and pulled in different directions. The lab is a hand in lab and a full lab report needs to be complete. Remember the polymers are toxic if ingested so […]
Today you were given an assignment on the petrochemical industry (Petrochemical Assignment). This assignment will count towards your grade for this unit. You were also given a tarsia puzzle to complete as part of your assignments for this unit.
Functional Groups flipbook lesson 6 lesson 5 Today we went over what isomers are, how to draw cis and trans isomers, and how to identify an asymmetric carbon. We also went over what the different possible functional groups in an organic molecule are and how to name organic molecules that contain a functional group. We started […]
Today we continued on with naming organic molecules. We learned about the difference between saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons, as well as how to name alkenes and alkynes. We created 2 flipbooks to add to our notes to help with naming. lesson 4 (Day 2) naming foldable naming foldable2
Today we build some models, learned about the definition of organic chem, hydrocarbons and alkanes. We looked at some ways to model organic compounds and practiced naming straight and branched alkanes. We completed a Tarsia puzzle and started the first assignment. lesson 1 lesson 2 lesson 3b basic alkane puzzle MS3 Organic Chemistry Student
