Chemistry- Week of 9/17

Happy Monday Everyone!

On Monday, we will continue our discussion of the Periodic Table and how it’s arrangement makes it a great tool that can give us lots of information. We will discover how elemental properties have trends within the Periodic Table.

On Tuesday we will review atomic theory, atomic structure and the periodic table for your quiz on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, you will take a quiz on unit 3-atomic theory and the periodic table and take your 2nd common assessment.

On Thursday, we will begin our study of the nucleus- we will look at what radiation and radioactivity is. We will discuss fission and fusion and how all elements are created through fusion. We will read an article on elements and fusion and answer some discussion questions too.

On Friday, we will talk about 1/2 life and complete a lab/activity on the half-life of m&m’s. We will also determine our yearly dose of radiation. After that we will look at how nuclear power plants work and what happened at the Japanese Fukushima Plant after the tsunami last year.

 

Honors Chemistry – Week of 9/17

Happy Monday Everyone!

On Monday we will continue our discussion of periodic trends and complete a lab on properties and the periodic table. This way you can see exactly what we are talking about!

On Tuesday, We will review atomic theory, atomic structure and the periodic table for your assessment on Wednesday!

On Wednesday, you will quiz on unit 3- atomic theory and the periodic table. We will also complete out 2nd common assessment!

On Thursday, we will begin out next unit, starting off with nuclear chemistry. We will learn about the power inside the nucleus. We will discuss radioactivity, radiation and nuclear decay along with 1/2 life. We will also do a1/2 life activity/lab.

On Friday, we will take a look at how power plants work, read and discuss what happened at the Fukushima plant a year ago in Japan, watch a video of the aftermath from the BBC, and determine our average yearly dose of radiation.
