Lesson Plans for March 24 thru 28

Chemistry I Lesson Plans March 24-28
This week we are finishing up our Penny Lab where we looked at why you can place over 150 drops of water on a penny.  We used a computational chemistry program to draw water and other solutions and look at their properties (  After two weeks of naming and writing ionic and covalent compounds, we are ready to start drawing their Lewis structures.  This is a very important unit as it is the groundwork for learning what reactions take place in our next chapter – where the real chemistry can begin……

Adv. Chemistry Lesson Plans March 24-28
This week we are finishing up our titration portion of the acid/base unit.  We used a virtual titration lab last week to practice titrating which can be a tedious procedure.  It also helps reduce chemical waste in the real lab.  Finishing up our topic of naming and writing acid and base formulae, students will begin applying their knowledge of what makes a strong versus weak acid or base with the introduction of equilibrium at the end of the week.

AP Chemistry Lesson Plans March 24-28
We are finishing up our equilibrium unit this week and taking the AP practice test for it.  Equilibrium is a very important topic that is used in many different aspects of chemistry and will be revisited in the acid/base review as well as our thermodynamics review.  Our next topic of rates of reaction will be introduced next week, so students are asked to read ahead in their AP book.  On Friday, we will have a fun activity about the Periodic Table in the format of an NCAA bracket to celebrate March Madness!

1.  homework back and discuss
2.  Ksp notes and problems lecture
3.  Ch 11 homework on rates due!

1.  finish notes on Ksp
