Physical and Chemical Properties and Changes

  1. Go over Unit II test and do corrections.  If you want to do a retest, you will need to do your test corrections first, identify what areas you need more practice, do extra practice questions, and then talk to me to schedule a time.  The earliest retest date is on Thurs. Oct 25 during the Flex Period.
  2. Review:  Qualitative and Quantitative Properties (see question 1 and 3 in Unit III)

  1. Go over the WS “Classification of Matter” – what did you learn? See the Key Q #6.
  2. Do:  Unit III #1 and 2 (p.43); #13 and 15 (p.44) and #17 and 19 (p.48)
  3. Activity:  Physical and Chemical Changes (f there is time)
  4. Video:

Intro to Unit III

  1.  Intro to Unit III – Matter
  2. Handout:  Learning Outcomes for Unit III.  See copy here:  Unit III Learning Log
  3. Handout:  Data Table for Chemistry 11.
  4. Demo:  Qualitative and Quantitative properties
  5. Demo:  Elements and Compounds – using K’Nex to illustrate elements and compounds
  6. Read Unit III.1-III.3.  For section 1, the key vocabulary words are :  qualitative, quantitative, data, and observation.  Know all the vocabulary for section 2 and 3.
  7. How will you organize your information?   a) column notes   or b) cue cards   or c) mind map format (like the “Chemis-tree”?  See block 3’s notes:  Chemistree)  At the end of the unit, you will hand in your organized study notes (whichever method you choose).
  8. Do:  “Classification of Matter” worksheet.  See copy here:  7 Classification of Matter-S

Unit II Test

  1. Students wrote the Unit II test today.
  2. Reminder:  Bring a duotang/folder to hold your labs, quizzes, and tests that we can keep in the classroom.  This way, you can go over your test corrections more easily.
  3. Next class, make sure you bring your workbooks as there is a lot more reading in Unit III and you will want to be able to highlight key ideas in your workbook.
