Multiple Choice Exam! in Google Classroom

Multiple Choice Exam!

I have not had a chance to see how your equilibrium problems have turned out yet BUT when we close the chapter on equilibrium we will have finished EVERYTHING in the AS syllabus EXCEPT organic chemistry!

So - I am giving you an exam that is strictly multiple choice. These are real Cambridge exam questions, and I have attached time limits to them to reflect the fact that in a real exam setting the clock is ticking. This exam contains questions covering EVERY topic that we have covered.

The purpose of this exam is twofold - First, it will help me see how much of the material up to organic chemistry you have actually absorbed/retained over the year, which will help me better plan how to spend our remaining time (both this year and next). Second, I want you to use this experience to think about next year and whether you want to stick with the AS syllabus or shoot for A-level. If you plan to stick with AS then all you have to do is master the concepts on this exam PLUS organic chemistry (about 5 more chapters). If you plan to do A level chemistry, then you are about HALFWAY through the course and you will need to master everything on this exam PLUS another 15 chapters of material. I am not saying this to discourage anyone, simply to give you some context on the difference between AS and A-level chemistry - it is a significant difference.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN!!!

This is a fairly long exam - it may take as much as an hour depending on how long you spend on each problem particularly the ones that involve calculations. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AT LEAST 1 HOUR AVAILABLE TO SPEND ON THE EXAM BEFORE YOU START!

Just like with the Cambridge exam, you will need some resources in order to successfully complete the exam...

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A DATA BOOKLET (OR AT LEAST A PERIODIC TABLE), A CALCULATOR AND SOME SCRATCH PAPER BEFORE YOU BEGIN!

Good luck!

Equilibrium Review in Google Classroom

Equilibrium Review

Alright folks, I want to get back to the topic at hand here which was equilibrium! It is hard for me to gauge how much you have actually absorbed from the previous assignments on equilibrium because I don't really get your questions and struggles through the interwebs, just the final product.

In the interest of getting some idea of where everyone is, I want you to do some problems out of the textbook.

Your assignment is:

Chapter 8 - end of chapter problems ODD numbered questions only!

If you can't answer a problem - flip back through the chapter and see if you can find how to answer it. If you STILL can't find an answer, then just SKIP that question. This will help me see what you get and what you don't get. Next week I will go over the solutions to the problems, and we will see how you feel at that point (and maybe move on to a new topic?)

Research Research Opportunities in Google Classroom

Research Research Opportunities

We are going to take a little break from equilibrium this week so you can invest some time and energy researching something I wish I had known more about when I was attending university - research opportunities for students!

No matter how advanced, how well-equipped, how well-funded a school is the experience will never compare to *working* in a real research environment. There are hundreds (thousands? millions?) of opportunities out there for both high school and undergraduate students to engage in REAL (often paid) laboratory work. In addition to the pay, having these experiences looks fantastic on a resume, AND it is gives you a chance to experience the kind of work the scientists ACTUALLY DO on a daily basis.

Your assignment for this week is to find 2 or 3 research opportunities available to EITHER high school or undergraduate students. The opportunities can be ANYWHERE in the world, BUT I suggest you make this as constructive as possible - find opportunities you might personally want to pursue!

For EACH opportunity you need to find the following information:
-What are the acceptance requirements/criteria? (GPA, citizenship, high school or undergrad, sex, pursuing specific degree?)
-How long is the research opportunity?
-Where is the research opportunity?
-What are you researching? (it can be as vague as chemistry/physics/biology or very specific)
-Is it paid? (and if so how much?)
-Link?

All of you will post your findings as a comment attached to this assignment - this way everyone will have a short list of interesting research opportunities to keep in mind! Who knows what life will be like come summer time (when most of these opportunities tend to happen), but if you find one that interests you and you qualify for I encourage you to apply! (It never hurts to apply for anything!)

Playing with Equilibrium in Google Classroom

Playing with Equilibrium

Click the link below and play through the levels, and use the attached PDF linked below to collect your observations. You should be able to type your answers directly into the PDF, however if it does not work or if you would prefer to do it by hand you can use the PDF worksheet as a guide and write you answers on a sheet of paper. You will submit the PDF or a photo of your hand-written answers when you are finished. The PDF goes all the way to level 21 but you ONLY need to play up to level 12. You are welcome to play past that if you like, but the assignment is to level 12 only!

You have 1 week to complete the assignment - let me know if you have any questions or problems!

Equilibrium - Cobalt Chloride Virtual Lab in Google Classroom

Equilibrium - Cobalt Chloride Virtual Lab

Since we have at least a few more weeks of working online, I have decided to move ahead with the next topic and get you all thinking about equilibrium. This virtual lab is intended as a way for you to explore the concept of equilibrium, and specifically Le Chatelier's principle. It is an important concept that comes up a lot on the exam - especially in the Haber Process type questions that are always part of the structured response exam.

Start by watching the video linked below - it will give you some background on the concept. If you need more information you can refer to the equilibrium chapter in your textbook.

The second link will take you to the virtual "lab" where you will perform the experiment. It took quite a few minutes for it to load the first time I opened it on my computer, so have some patience. The interface is a little clunky, but it does provide a good reflection of the lab work and equipment you should be familiar with.

The document linked below has the directions for the lab. Follow along with the directions, and then summarize your findings at the end of the document, and submit it when you have finished.

If you have any questions or concerns, or you get stuck, please let me know!
