We will meet on Thursday morning around 10:30am. We will do some bonding review and work on examples using the periodic table. We will also research some experiments/demos we can do next week.
We will meet Tuesday morning to review the ionic bonding tutorial and choose an experiment to perform – options for experiments include chemistry of monsters, tin hedgehog, and chemistry in special effects.

Think about these questions deeply – talk to your parents and friends about them before you answer or do some research if you need to. E-mail your answers back to me by Friday the 13th. Answering these questions is a required task for 2nd semester.
1. What are you going to learn?
2. How are you going to learn it?
3. How are you going to show me you are learning?
I know this is open-ended and will be hard for some of you, but go for it anyway. I am not looking for answers like “I’m going to learn what you teach me.”
I’m looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
