Last week before Spring Break!
Week 22 Resources/ Assets
Updated February 23, 2019
Please make sure you READ everything on this page or you will miss important details. I will archive past weeks Announcements pages for a limited time only under their respective Trimesters 1, 2 and 3 tabs, if you need to go back to a particular weeks information for any reason.
Week 21 in Review
We did not quite get through all of Chapter 11 this past week, since we missed the very end. Please make sure if you are having difficulty understanding the material from this chapter, to go through the screencasts, again (linked below). Sometimes it takes watching, reading, hearing, seeing something, a few times before you can fully understand it.
Please note that I have linked my own APA write-up in progress at the right, so you may get an idea as to how to write your Title Page, Methods, and Results Sections. You may copy and paste my data table into your own paper, but please make sure you give me some attribution (on Title Page in the Author's Note, and ultimately in your Citations section). I do not request attribution because I am on a power trip - but rather so that you do not commit plagiarism (colleges really look down on this).
Do remember that I handed you all back your Calorimetry labs, so that you may look over your calculations, and be sure they are accurate. As I have already stated many many times; you are free to use my data, but make sure you can perform all the calculations on your own. These are due on Tuesday, along with the Quiz #21 I handed out on Tuesday.
Remember I told you all that I would mercifully hold your hands through this writing process, so that you can author a paper you will be proud of! You will turn in individual sections (about one per week), that I will issue feedback on, but NOT post a grade. From my feedback, you can then make the edits and changes, and turn in the entire manuscript. Here are the due dates for these individual constituents:
You can expect one more paper in this format due in Trimester 3.
Upcoming Week 22
This week we will start Chapter 13 - Electrons in Atoms. Please come to class prepared to take notes and bring any questions from the homework with you. This chapter is nearly math-free, because the calculations and mathematical models that physicists used to describe quantum theory involve advanced calculus and fall outside the scope of this class; as a consequence, the theory is conceptually challenging. The chapter is broken down as follows:
Chemists are particularly interested in electrons because they are the little rascals responsible for chemical reactions. When electrons move from one atom to another, chemical reactions occur!
