Basic Chemistry Review

Define: compound, element, atom, molecule, ion, ionic bond, covalent bond, isotope, group, period, atomic number, atomic mass, valance shell, chemical reaction, reactants, products

Draw a simple periodic table-  

  • Highlight a group in blue
  • Highlight a period in pink
  • Write the oxidation number above each group in the periodic table.

the 3 basic parts of an atom, including their charges and where they are found
how electrons are placed in energy levels (be sure to mention how many electrons can be placed in each energy level)
which groups commonly bond together and why
which group does not typically bond and why
the basic characteristics of elements in the groups on periodic table.
what makes an element unique
why is the atomic mass a decimal
the history behind the periodic table
how the periodic table has changed and why
how the placement of an element on the periodic table depicts its properties
why do atoms want to form bonds
how to make an electron dot structure for an element
how the conservation of mass applies to a chemical reaction
the difference between a chemical reaction, having a chemical change, and a physical change

Write the basic equations for the 3 types of chemical reactions and describe these reactions

Physical Science- December 4th-8th

To continue with online learning for December 4th and 5th, please see the videos below.

After watching these two videos and taking into consideration what you have learned about solid, liquids, and gases and the changes between the phases, write a one page summary to describe what happens as water moves through all the phases.  Your paper should focus on the particle’s motion and energy in all phases and transitions.
When we return to school on Wednesday, we will continue with in-class presentations of our science fair projects.  The schedule has been modified to match the shortened class period time.  Please see this Google Doc with the modified schedule.

Physical Science- Online Work- for Nov 29-Dec 1

We will pick up with science fair when we return to school.  Please be prepared to present your projects on Monday.  I’m looking forward to seeing your presentations!

Meanwhile, here are a few things to do to review what you have been studying from Chapter 3.
See this video about how water’s molecules move in each state of matter.  In your notes, write a describe of the molecules arrangement and movement. 
Complete the Math Analyzing Data from Chapter 3, Section 2.
We will review these in class next week.
