Recap of transition metal naming. Introduced polyatomic ions. Just like vocabulary in a foreign language, these need to be memorized. Click on the link below for the table of ions that need to be memorized for this year.


Quiz on Polyatomic Ions Monday !!

Attached to this post is a Powerpoint polyatomic Jeopardy game (I hope)!

School closure and retest meetings

April 18, 2013

Luckily, I did not have any meetings scheduled this morning since I thought we were setting up the lab today, but about 8 people were signed up for this afternoon. If you are able to come tomorrow (Friday) afternoon instead, I will fit you in then, or you can hand me your worksheet during the day tomorrow and I’ll grade it and you can just stop by on your way out of the building Friday and pick it up with the feedback checklist. If you need to reschedule, that’s fine too as long as there’s an open slot.

I do not know if anyone had signed up for a morning test on Friday – if so, the test will NOT be there for you since I was putting them down there the day before – if you see this, get in touch with me via FirstClass and we will figure something out.


Resources for Equilibrium Help

I’m going to be adding any decent resources I find to help you prepare for the retest – sometimes seeing a bunch of different presentations of an idea can help turn on the lightbulb! Keep an eye on this space – I’ll just edit the post as I find new things to add.

1. ChemTeam Equilibrium help – Recommended by Marina! She said she particularly found #6 helpful in figuring out common ion problems.
