Here is a sheet of memorization tips that some found for one of my classes last year. While not every tip will work for your memorizing, there are a few good ones on there that might help you as you work to memorize. Please note that when they discuss the families, VI = 16 and VII = 17 in your notes and on your periodic table. Good luck studying!
Here is your chapter 6 homework assignment. Please begin completing the problems! For most classes, we only have intermolecular forces left to discuss, although some of you might need to read a little about metallic bonding to complete some of the problems. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Our second extra credit quiz is coming up on Wednesday, December 4th. The topic is the carbon family. You can find the information in the elements handbook in the reference section in back of your textbook. The pages are R28-R43. If you have an older version of the textbook, please look in the reference section at the back to find the carbon family in the elements handbook. You should be able to find the section even though the page numbers are different.
Please remember the following information from your course outline about the extra credit quizzes:
Quizzes are offered from 7:30-8am in room 453. You must finish early enough to make it to your first period class. I will not write notes to admit students to first period. Quizzes will be multiple choice, true or false and matching questions only.There will be 20 questions on each quiz and 1 extra credit point will be given for each point scored above a 12/20. Please bring your periodic table, but calculators are not allowed. There are no periodic tables available if you do not have yours.
Your chapter 5 test has been re-scheduled for Thursday, November 21st. The chapter 5 homework assignment is below. Please remember that we did not finish discussing electronegativity or the history of the periodic table so reading those sections will greatly help with your homework assignment. We will discuss these topics on Wednesday, November 13th. This assignment will be turned in on Friday, November 15th. We will review for the test on Wednesday, November 20th. Please email with any questions.
Attached is the sheet with the common elements and symbols that you need to know for your quiz on Wednesday, September 4th. You received a printed copy in class, but please let me know if you can't open the attachment.
