Announcements

  • CHEM 2 HONORS/AP CHEM STUDENTS!

    I just came across this today and thought you might find this helpful.  It is from a college professor who uses our text book and has his students watch videos for each topic and chapter.  He has his students watch the videos 5 times and record what they do.  You don't have to do that, but I thought the video links might be helpful!  Be sure to click the appropriate tab at the bottom.  If you are struggling with the empirical/molecular formulas or hydrates, look at Chapter 3. Here is the file: excel spreadsheet with videos

    I couldn't get the links to work on my phone, but they opened on my laptop.  

    If you try this, let me know what you think!

  • Supplies needed for Physical Science, Honors Chemistry and Chem II Honors/AP Chemistry:

    • notebook paper
    • pencil/pen: no bright colors for homework, I'm old! ;-)
    • 3-ring binder (dividers optional)
    • -scientific calculator (phones are NOT acceptable for tests/quizzes and you must have your own!)
      • graphing calculators are ok, but NOT required
      • a good scientific calculator is about $10-$15.  I use a TI-30X
    • colored pens or pencils (highlighters would be helpful too)

     Please consider a donation of any of the following:

    facial tissues, hand soap, paper towels, glue sticks, markers, colored pencils, C or D batteries

     

  • NEED HELP?

    If you have missed a day or are having trouble understanding anything in class you can try the videos listed below.  Go to youtube, and search for the topic and one of these names: Bozeman Science, Crash Course Chemistry, Tyler DeWitt or Khan Academy.  For example, searching "Crash Course Chemistry electron configurations" will result in a really interesting look at electron configurations and music presented by Hank Green!
