Unit 6: Solids, Liquids and Gases

Unit 6 pertains to the topic of Solids,
Liquids and Gases. Get yourself in the right state of mind as it will
be a quick 8 to 9day unit. The first part of the unit should ideally be a
real gas. Despite the rather ephemeral start, our feet should hit solid
ground around the fifth or sixth day of the unit. The unit will be a
mixture of conceptual reasoning and mathematics. A bit like Physics, there will be a good deal of algebraic thinking and
formulabased problem solving. Some may think that the mathematics is
just a phase and will quickly evaporate or go away; that's not the case
as Unit 6 and subsequent units will be highly reliable upon mathematics
and problemsolving.

Viewing Your Unit 5 Test

Beginning on Wednesday, February 12,
students are welcome to come in to view their Unit 5 Test. You will be
given your test, the test key, and some time to look and reflect. I
will be present to answer questions. I am available all lunch
periods on Blue Days and before and after school on most Gold Days. Make arrangements to come in.

Pressure Concepts Concept Builder

You will be doing the
Pressure Concpets Concept Builder in class as partners on Tuesday.
Log in with both partners names  like Mac and Tosh. Visit:

ChemThink  Behaior of Gases

We will be doing a ChemThink Tutorial
in class on Monday. You will complete the Tutorial and the "Problem
Set". We've done these before. If you no longer have your username and
password, then create an account and be added to my class with the
following access codes:
Block 1: 76871419
Block 2: 47664051

Lab SLG1: Pressure vs. Volume

Lab SLG1 will be completed using Google
Classroom. You will work as partners. One student should grab the Lab
Template and share it with their partner. Begin by putting both
students' names on the front page of the document.

Lab SLG2: Pressure vs. Temperature

Lab SLG2 will also be completed using Google
Classroom. You will work as partners. One student should grab the Lab
Template and share it with their partner. Begin by putting both
students name on the front page of the document. Use this Desmos Graph for data collection and plotting.

Graphical Analysis for Chrome

We will be using the Vernier Graphical
Analysis app for some upcoming labs. Download it to your Chromebook
from the Chrome Web Store. FREE!
Download Graphical Analysis.

Real STEM Students Do It With Desmos

The first two labs of this unit will
involve the collection of data and the ultimate analysis using Desmos.
You will plot the data in Desmos and utilize an appropriate function
such as y = m•x + b or y•x = k or ... in order to best fit the line and generate an equation for the best fit line.
Visit Desmos.

Mr. H's Little Secret

Pssss. Hey bud! I have a secret to
share. Now that you know how to calculate the molar mass, here's a
little cheat you should be permitted to use. It's called a Molar Mass
Calculator and you will find several by following the links below. You type in the
formula and it calculates the molar mass.

FREE: A Chemistry Study Tip

Stretching out your studies over a
lengthy period of time so that there are many "visits" of the material
is far better than lengthier, lessfrequent sessions of intense
studies. So what's this have to do with Chemistry class? I'm going to
tell you:
A little Chemistry each day helps. Your homework usually includes two
WebAssigns  one is a "looking ahead" WebAssign in which you read about
something that is coming up next. The other is a "looking behind"
WebAssign in which you practice using something that we just learned in
class. So why not do the "Looking behind" WebAssign on the evening of
the Blue day  the day you were presented with the material. And then
do the "Looking ahead" WebAssign on the evening of the Gold day  the
evening just prior to when we cover the material the next morning.
Hopefully that makes sense ... and it gives you a little Chemistry
every day. =SIGH=
