Due:

Many of you have asked me to post the holiday homework assignment early so you can get started - so here it is! (Remember, you voted for this!) 
(1) PRINT, STUDY, and COMPLETE the exercises in the NMSI Packet "12 Kinetics".  Please take the time to read it carefully - it explains everything very well and in great detail!  For the math nerds among you, it shows some of the calculus used to derive our kinetics equations as well.  It also includes instructions on how to graph rate data using your graphing calculator. 
(2) Complete the Free Response problems in the "Kinetics FR Worksheet" packet.  SHOW ALL WORK.   Do the problems on a separate paper, don't write on the worksheet (not enough room to show your work).  INCLUDE UNITS will all answers that need them (concentrations, pressures, times, rate constants, etc). 
TEST on CH. 14 Kinetics is MONDAY DEC 2.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday!

Due:

READ the sections of your Kinetics for Dummies packet on MECHANISMS.   
Print and Do the problems on the attached worksheet. 

Due:

Print and complete the attached worksheets.You may skip (for now) any problems that use half-life.  

Due:

PRINT the attached lab and READ the procedure before coming to class.  

Due:

::::: NOTE ::::: Test date changed to Thursday!   Print, read, and complete the exercises for the attached NMSI Packet on Gases. TEST on Gases (CH 10) Tomorrow (Thursday Nov. 7).

Due:

Pgs. 403k-n: Do AP Multiple Choice Review Questions #1-13 (Note: question 13 should say, "Which of the following statements is true concerning real gases AT LOW TEMPERATURES?")
Also do all AP Free Response Review questions on pg 403n. 

Due:

Trick or Treat!  Your Happy Halloween Homework packet is due today!  Rubric is attached below.  Please make sure all assignments are complete, stamped, in order, and clearly labeled; staple or clip together and turn in at beginning of period. 

Due:

Print and read the attached lab procedure and be prepared to perform this lab in class today!

Due:

Print and complete the attached worksheets. 

Due:

Do the following problems on pages 337a-c:  # 13-16; #34, #38

Due:

Do following problems:  Pg 337-337a, #2-12 evens only.  Follow the method given in the attached instructions when drawing Lewis structures!

Due:

Print and READ the attached document regarding Periodic Trends; then, using what you've learned from it, answer the following questions: 

(1) Explain why the atomic radius of Mg is greater than that of Cl.
 
(2)  Explain why the first ionization energy of S is greater than that of Se.
 
(3) Explain why the ionic radius of Br- is greater than that of Br.
 
(4)  Explain why the ionic radius of K+ is smaller than that of K.
 
(5) Element "X"'s first ionization energy is smaller than element "Z"'s .  X has its valence electrons in both s and p sublevels, but Z's valence electrons are only in an s sublevel.  X forms ions with a -1 charge, and Z forms ions with a +2 charge.   Which of the following elements could be X and Z?  Justify your choices!   Iodine; Lithium; Fluorine; Aluminum; Phosphorus; Barium; Beryllium

Due:

Do the following problems from the textbook: Pgs 281a-d, # 19, 20, 23,24, 27,28, 31, 32, 33, 34, 46, 58

Due:

Due:

Complete these worksheets in class; finish for homework if you have to.  TEST Friday!  Keys for worksheets attached. Note: Error on WS2 #5b; should not have multiplied 112 g by 2 again, so answer should be 11589 degrees.  This is so hot that the iron product actually melts once it reaches its melting point temperature of 1538 degrees C.  

Due:

Do the following problems : Pgs 217c-j, # 49, 63, 83, 87, 99, 116, 118

Due:

Print and complete the attached worksheet on Net Ionic Equations.  Although it is written as a "group" activity, you may complete it by yourself, or you may organize a group to work it through.  "Virtual" groups are ok.  

Due:

Do the following problems in your textbook; SHOW ALL WORK, with UNITS, and ROUND answers to correct sig figs. 
Pg 95e, # 92,94,98; pg 95g, #114; pg 95h, #124; pg 95i, # 130, 142, 144.

Ok, IF I did this right (big IF), you should be able to log into APClassroom and take an online practice quiz called "Test 1, Chs 1,2,4 practice".  The assignment will be unlocked at 2 PM today and will be locked again at 7:45 tomorrow morning.  You will get immediate feedback on your answers, so you'll know how you did.  Email me if you have any problems accessing it.

Due:

Complete both the white and blue worksheet packets on mental math that you were given on Thursday.  
Print and complete the ODD-NUMBER problems only on attached Stoichiometry practice worksheet.

PRINT and READ the attached Lab Procedure for the Formula of a Hydrate experiment.  ANSWER the pre-lab questions and bring both to class.

Due:

***Bring Donation Money Today Please!***
REVIEW sections 2-1 through 2-9 in Ch. 2.  Most of this material you already learned in Honors Chem, so "skimming" as you read is OK.  DO the "Review and Check" questions for each of the sections on pages 48, 50, 52, 63, 65, 74-75, 77, and 83-84.  The answers are in the back of the book, but please do them all before you peek!  Check your work when you're finished.  

I've also been asked to give you more practice on dimensional analysis,so here's a good tutorial website with lots of examples and practice problems.  (The answers link doesn't work, though.)  Do at least 4 problems from each difficulty level (Level 1, 2, and 3). 
Dimensional Analysis practice   SHOW ALL WORK WITH UNITS! 

Due:

Read sections 1-3 through 1-8 (pgs 6-19) and do the "Review and Check" questions at the end of each section.  Then do the following problems at the end of the chapter: AP Multiple-choice Review Questions pgs. 21e-21f, # 1-7.
Also, start re-memorizing the ions on the sheet attached here! There will be questions on ions' names formulas and charges on our first test!

Due:

Go to myap.collegeboard.org and log into our AP Chemistry class.  There should be a "Quiz" there (it's not really a quiz, just a homework assignment) labeled "HW 1, Mass Spec & Moles".  This is a TIMED, Multiple choice assignment.  There are 9 questions. NO CALCULATOR use! Any math required is mental math.  You get 15 minutes.   You have until 7:45 AM Thursday morning to complete the assignment.  There is nothing to print out; I will know if you have completed it. 

Let's hope this works!  You should be able to compete this on your phone as well as a laptop or desktop computer.
 

Due:

REVIEW pages 22-43; DO the review problems for each section; problems are on pages 28, 31,37-38, 39,41, & 43. SHOW WORK where calculations are required.

Due:

Read the Course Guidelines given to you in class (copies attached here as well).  Sign, and then have your parent/guardian sign, and return the bottom portion only to Ms. B.  Keep the top part in your Chemistry binder. HONORS CHEM: If you would like to have the entire textbook as .pdf files, bring a flash drive to Ms. B.
