Summer Assignment 2018

  1.  If you are taking AP Chemistry 12 next year,  you will keep the textbook “Chemistry the Central Science” by Brown and LeMay and the solutions book to the exercise in the textbook.  If you don’t have a copy of the textbook, you can try to find it online or in a public library.
  2. Your summer assignment will consist of four main things: a) chapter 25 (or ch26, depending on the edition of your textbook) on organic chemistry, b) ch13 on solutions and colligative properties, c) photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) and d) review of previous chapters.  See instructions here:

Chem 11H Summer Assignment 2018.

Check back during the summer to see if anything else has been added.

3.  Resources:

ch13 Properties of Solutions Learning Outcomes

4.  Chapter worksheets and answer keys – no peeking at the answers until you have tried all the questions!!

(ch25 WS – oops posted the wrong one!  For practice instead, you can do questions from the end of the chapter.  Depending on which edition of the textbook you are using, the organic chemistry chapter may be chapter 25 or 26 (I think it is ch26 in the 6th edition and ch25 in the 9th edition).  The focus is on writing and naming organic compounds (alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, cyclic compounds, aromatics, and the functional groups)

That said, here is the worksheet for the organic chemistry chapter:  ch26 Organic Chemistry Worksheet

ch13 review worksheet and answer key

5.  Photoelectron Spectroscopy Resources and Practice:

a.  from Khan Academy:

b.  a good powerpoint: PES powerpoint

c.  Video:

Organic Chemistry Part 2

  1.  Reminder to return textbooks and solutions book if you are NOT taking AP Chemistry next year.  I will go over the summer assignment next class.
  2. I will be able to name alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, and cyclic compounds.
  3. Do:  Worksheet #38 (a-f, h, i, m, p)  #39 (b,e,g-i, k-m, p, r) and #43 (all)
  4. Go over final exams
  5. Go over term 3 progress reports

Ch11 Test

  1. Hand in ch11 notes and review worksheet answers and corrections.
  2. Today, students wrote the chapter 11 test on intermolecular forces.
  3. Next class, we will be reviewing for the final exam.
  4. Reminder:  Final exam part 1 (written section) on Tuesday and part 2 (mc) will be on Thursday.
  5. If there is anything you want to hand in for Term 3, it should be handed in by next week (asap! as they are already long overdue!)

Review of Chapter 11

  1.  Warm up!
  2. Handout:  practice mc questions for the final exam.  The exam will be on Tues (written section) and Thurs (mc section) next week.  It will focus mainly on concepts from term 1 and term 2.
  3. Study – finish notes for ch11 and review ws.  Here is an updated answer key for the review worksheet:  Chapter 11 Review Worksheet
  4. Intro to Organic Chemistry – how to name alkanes.

Applications of IMFs

  1.  Go over Worksheet #1.  See answer key here:  IMF WS and answers
  2. Warm Up Q:  Why do we add salt to water when we want to boil pasta? (Hint:  think about IMFs)
  3. I will be able to compare the viscosity, surface tension, boiling point, melting point, etc…. (properties) of compounds by comparing the IMFs involved
  4. Finish reading ch11 and taking notes.
  5. Do:  Worksheet #2.  Start on ch11 review WS.
  6. Ch11 Test – Wed. next week

Intro to IMFs (InterMolecular Forces)

  1.  I will be able to compare the strengths of intermolecular forces.
  2. Read:  section 11.1 and 11.2 (comparing intermolecular forces), section 11.3 to 11.5 (how IMFs affect properties such as viscosity, surface tension, and phase changes), section 11.6 (phase diagrams), and section 11.7 and 11.8 (structure and properties of solids)
  3. Do:  Worksheet.  See copy here and the answers are included:  IMF WS and answers
  4. A really good resource/summary of IMFs:
