Kw, Ionization of Water

  1.  What did you cover last class?  We continued on with the study guide.  See block 1 notes here:  Acids and Bases Study Guide Part 1 Block 1 notes Feb21
  2. Do:  Worksheet “Self Test” #2-10 odd letters only.  We marked as many questions as we could at the end of class.
  3. Quiz next class will be only on sections 1-6 since we did not have enough time to cover up to section 11 fully.  There will be about 15 mc questions.  This should only take 15-20 minutes.  We will do more practice/review of sections 7-11 and learn about pH and pOH.

Intro to Cells

  1.  Mark section 1.1 worksheets and hand in.
  2. I will be able to explain how the body is organized from cells to body systems
  3. I will be able to identify the parts and function of the cell organelles.
  4. Read section 1.2.  This section is written using an analogy, where you compare one thing to another.  They compare the parts of the cell with the Newo colony.  Think about how the parts of the cells are similar to things in your life.
  5. Do:  Cell Coloring sheets to help you identify the parts and function of the cell.  Make Column notes from the information you read.  Animal and Plant Cell Coloring pages
  6. Do:  Start section 1.2 worksheets (not due yet) – see previous day’s blog for the worksheets.
  7. Students received a term progress report of what they have covered so far.  The ch6 test is still being marked (hence the blank).  If you have an “I” (incomplete) or a blank space, you need to complete these asap.  Tues. Feb. 25 is a Goal Morning.  Come in to complete them
  8. Assessments for Term 2 are due by Thurs. Feb 27.

Ch5 Test

Today, students wrote the ch5 test on Thermochemistry.

For next class, finish the “Electron Configuration” worksheet and bring any questions you have from your readings!

Reminder:  last day for term 2 assessments is Thurs. Feb.27

Strengths of Acids and Bases

  1.  Since I was away today, the TOC should have covered the sections on the Strengths of Acids and Bases and may have introduced how to calculate the pH of a solution.
  2. You filled in your study guide.
  3. You should read your workbook up to section 4.11 and try some of the practice queestions from each section.
  4. If you have questions, bring them on Friday!
  5. Acids and Bases Test #1 – scheduled for Tues. Feb.25
  6. Deadline for Term2 assessments – Thurs. Feb.27 – any assessments you want to count for term 2 must be completed by then.

Ch6 Test today

  1.  Today, students in block 8 wrote the ch6 test on Vision and the Eye.
  2. Homework:  finish the worksheet pages for section 1.1.  See previous day’s blog for a copy of the worksheets if you do not have one, or email me for a copy.

How to Write Electron Configurations and Review of ch5

  1.  Warm Up!  practice questions from ch5.
  2. Any Q’s from the Ch5 review worksheet?
  3. Ch5 Test Outline:  20 multiple choice questions from a variety of topics in ch5 (make sure you have read the chapter!) and 4 written questions (stoichiometry, calorimetry, Hess’ Law, enthalpies of formation —ways to find enthalpy)
  4. I will be able to write the quantum electron configurations. —read the history parts to give you background on how the quantum model came about.
  5. Do:  Worksheet “Electron Configurations” for class after test.
  6. Reminder:  any assessments for Term 2 due by Feb.27 for it to count towards your term 2 mark.

Bronsted-Lowry Acids and Bases

  1.  Go over Lab 20A- can you identify which are acids and which are bases?  What is Arrhenius’ definition of an acid and a base?  Why does this not work for NH3?
  2. I will be able to identify Bronsted-Lowry acids and bases.
  3. Go over worksheet “Acids and Bases” and fill in the study guide worksheet pages.  See copies of the worksheet on last day’s blog.
  4. Do:  Read section 4.1 to 4.5 and do practice questions from each section.
  5. Heads up!  First section test for section 4.1 to 4.11 projected to be on Feb.25.  It will be multiple choice.
  6. Heads up!  Any assessments for Term 2 must be completed by Feb.28 in order to be included in your term 2 mark.

More Microscope Activities

  1.  Hand back ch6 worksheets.  You will be allowed to use a small study card (half the size of the study card you used for chapter 5) for the test.  See test outline here:  Chapter 6 Test Outline
  2. Reminder:  ch6 test on Tues. Feb 18 (block 8) and Wed. Feb.19 (blocks 3 and 4).  Outline of the test:  about 25 multiple choice questions (bring a pencil!) and a few short answer questions and a diagram (what do you think the diagram will be?)
  3. I wil be able to make microscope measurments.  See handout here:  Microscope Activities 2020 and How to Use the Microscope and Microscope Measurement
  4. Do:  Insect Body Part diagram and microscope measurements.
  5. HW:  Study for ch6 test!
  6. Finish Microscope worksheet from last class.
