2.  Ch 16 Test

3.  Holiday “homework”:  Look at AP resources and see if there are any useful to you.  Recommended places to start:

1.  public library for AP Study guides.  Barron’s and Princeton Review, and 5 steps to a 5, are the most popular study guides.  They all have their pros and cons.  You do NOT have to have a study guide.  They are there if you think they are helpful.

2.  college board website:  what is the format of the exam?  major topics covered?  calculator policy?  am I allowed a calculator on the mc section?  what kinds of questions are on the free response section?  You can download some practice exams now so it saves you time later.

3.   has some good resources

4.  some teachers have good review materials.  do a google search.

5.  The last 3 chapters we will cover are ch17, 19, and 20 for you keeners who want to read ahead and start taking notes.

Otherwise, have a wonderful Christmas holiday! 🙂

Test outline:  Unit III.1 – III.5.  Major topics:  vocabulary, molarity calculations, dilution calculations, concentration of ions, strong/weak/non electrolytes, soluble vs. insoluble (low solubility), using the solubility table, writing the 3 reactions (formula, complete ionic, net ionic equations)

Format:  20-30 mc questions,  about 3-4 written questions (some calculations, some writing equations)

ch16 Review

1.  Mark Ch16 Review worksheet (see answers here: ch 16 Review Worksheet Answers – Acid-Base Equilibria) and do corrections/reflection.  What are you having troubles with?  What do you need more practice with?  Block 2 – Note Q 49 the answer should be D, not E!!  (oops for that typo!)
