Month: January 2017

Week of 1/30

Monday: Today we started with a quick review of what a buffer is and how to identify one. Tuesday: Today we started with the titration simulation so that you could see that not all equivalence points will be at a pH of 7.  We talked about why that happens for weak acids and bases (its […]

Week of 1/23

Monday: Today we started with some warm-up questions, reviewing Ka problems.  Then we did the salt hydrolysis exploration lab in which each person tested two ionic compounds  to see if they made the pH change. Here are the results. The rest of class we worked on understanding what happened in the lab and explaining it. […]

Week of Jan 16

Monday: MLK’s birthday. No school. Tuesday: Worked on page 12 in the packet – lots of questions, will review tomorrow. HW: textbook problems Wednesday: Reviewed all of the acid/base concepts we have learned so far.  Learned 7 strong acids to memorize. Here’s the notes from today.   Set up for half titration lab. Thursday: pKa […]

Week of 1/9/17

Monday: Ksp Lab. First half we did pre-lab. Then everyone set up the lab, but few got in a trial. Tuesday: Goal: to get 2 trials of data and do calculations. HW: lab report Wednesday: Review for test.  Focus on Ksp by working on 17.15 to 17.55 (odd). Thursday: Equilibrium and Ksp test Friday: Start […]

Week of 1/2

Monday No school/Holiday Tuesday: Review of some concepts we learned before break.  Started with pg 25 and 26 in the packet.  Then I used this simulation to review LeChatelier’s principle.  To practice you did the problems on page 30 in the packet. HW is to finish the LeChatelier Lab Q’s if you haven’t as well […]
