Students will be able to describe pure substances; specifically in regards to their chemical properties. Using the chemical properties, students will be about to predict formulas for stable binary ionic compounds based on balance of charges. In addition, students will use IUPAC nomenclature for transition between chemical names and chemical formulas of binary ionic compounds (containing representative elements) and binary covalent compounds (e.g., carbon dioxide, carbon tetrachloride). Finally students will apply the Law of Conservation of Matter by balancing the following types of chemical equations synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, and double replacement.
Directions for completing your "homework"
Now that we have finished 1st semester and you are comfortable watching videos, I am adding a little bit more to your work load. I introduced it to you in class already. Here are the steps to have done by the due date on your Unit Plan.
1. Watch and take notes
2. Complete the Summarizing Questions. They are located under the video and should be written in your notebook under your notes.
3. Write 1 question using the questions on the back of the Unit Plan to help you.
That is it. Bring those three things everyday to class and you will be able to do the fun activities for the day. Otherwise, you will be doing the above in class and missing out on the activities.
