Description
In this class we study the universe on the size scale of one ten billionth of a meter. This world of the small looks and acts quite differently from the world we are familiar with, and we use our imagination in order to picture the objects that occupy and interact in that world, our world.

Past Assignments

Due:

Students answer questions about the rate of reactions.

Due:

Students perform an experiment concerning the rate of a reaction.

Due:

Students will answer more questions concerning gases.

Due:

Students perform a lab in order to determine the gas constant.

Due:

Students perform a lab in order to determine the dependence of the pressure of a gas on the volume of the gas.

Due:

Reread the thermodynamics notes. These assignments have to do with thermodynamics: work and heat and all that.

Due:

Students will work on various activities and worksheets involving gases.

Due:

The students will answer questions about elementary thermodynamics.

Due:

Students work problems involving quantitative chemistry (stoichiometry).

Due:

Students take a test on quantum mechanics and Lewis electron dot structures for ionic compounds.

Due:

Students learn how to draw Lewis electron dot structures.

Due:

Students will draw Lewis electron dot diagrams.

Due:

Students will provide electron configurations, some based on the energy level diagram and some based on the periodic table.

Due:

This assignment is the first in handling quantum numbers.

Due:

Students perform a lab in which they identify product gases and deduce the reaction that they have observed.

Due:

Students write four briefs about articles. They write one longer analysis about a topic from one of the articles. The full assignment is described in one of the files below. The other sixteen files are the articles.

Due:

IMPORTANT: YOU ARE ALLOWED TO USE A 3 INCH BY 5 IN CARD, WRITTEN ON ONE SIDE, ON THE EXAM. WRITE ANYTHING YOU WANT, BUT NO WORKED PROBLEMS. The attached is not an assignment. This is the study guide for the midyear exam. It is there only to help you, and it is not due.

Due:

Students will answer questions about double displacement reactions.
The notes are provided in "notes 10". Students may also consult Khan Academy or other sources on the web. Students may also consult the ebook, although the discussion there is not complete.

Due:

Students write synthesis and decomposition reactions.

Due:

Students work problems dealing with conversions between numbers, moles, and mass.

Due:

Students balance chemical reactions.

Due:

Students write correct chemical reactions by correcting ionic compounds, writing diatomic elements correctly, and balancing the reactions.

Due:

Students perform an exercise that helps them understand the concept of a mole.

Due:

In this assignment students draw pictures of ionic compounds

Due:

Writing ionic compounds with polyatomic anions.

Due:

This worksheet distinguishes between physical and chemical changes.

Due:

This lab further teaches students about molecules using molecular models: sticks and balls.

Due:

This lab provide practice with the molecular models.

Due:

These worksheets deal with phase transitions and phase diagrams.

Due:

Test over ionic compounds

Due:

In this lab students explore the components of an atom.

Due:

 This assignment involves naming ionic compounds.

Due:

 This is a worksheet that will give students practice in determining when a compound is molecular of ionic.

Due:

 This is a simple worksheet on the parts of the atom.

Due:

 Students use software to build atoms from protons, neutrons, and electrons.

Due:

 This packet is an exposition of the so-called scientific method. Students identify scientific language, devise an experiment, and read about a time when scientific method was more complicated than that given in the simple method.
