- I'll be looking over your results from yesterday's assignment this morning and will post something this morning or afternoon. Start paying attention to Microsoft Teams. I'm getting more comfortable with it. I combined both bio/chem classes into one team and added a videos tab. Stay tuned.
- UPDATE: Please go to the "Videos" tab on Microsoft Teams and watch "A Few Things"
- Go to Microsoft Teams and use an emoji on my message, "Let me know you're here.
- "Watch the "Ionic Charge" video in Microsoft Teams. There's about a minute long pause of me not saying anything cuz I thought I screwed up the recording a second time. Smh. Lol.
- That's all for today. Brain fried. Enjoy your weekend.
- April 5 - April 11
- Complete the Ions Quiz below
- Watch the video on Teams named "Khan Academy: Pass or Fail?"

- Complete Chemical Names and Formulas Quiz (Part III)
- Due to power outages, we were instructed to extend today's assignment until Thursday at noon. Therefore, there will be no assignment on Tuesday or Wednesday.
- Below you will see a page link called "Naming Ionic Compounds with Transition Metals Introduction". I'm learning a few things here on Moodle, so I think you'll start seeing this a lot more. This page link will take you to a YouTube video, but keep you here in Moodle. This guy might seem boring, but I he is equally as good as Khan Academy, and he teaches exactly what I would, except he's way better as an online presenter. Though I'm way cooler. Khan Academy is great too, but they don't have quite all the content that I need. Today's assignment is to watch this video and then check the box to the right of the link. Get used to that as well as I've added a completion progress tracker to the page. Some assignments will require you to check the box to show completion, while other assignments will require a passing grade that won't get checked until you get that grade. I'm still playing around with it but you can check it out over on the left side. No questions to answer today. Likely tomorrow.
- Watch the video called "Naming Ionic Compounds with Transition Metals Practice Problems" by clicking on the page link below.
- When done, click the box to the right of the link.
- Complete the quiz called "Naming Ionic Compounds with Transition Metals"
- April 19 - April 25
- Watch the video called "Writing Ionic Formulas with Transition Metals" and complete the associated quiz. Check the box for the video when finished to show completion.
- Watch the video called "Naming Covalent Molecular Compounds" and complete the associated quiz. Check the box for the video when finished to show completion.
- Watch the videos "Chemical Reactions" and "Balancing Chemical Equations". Check the box for each video when finished to show completion.
Thursday, 4/23 and Friday, 4/24
- Assignments due by Monday at noon
- Watch the video below titled "Moodle Pass or Fail?"
- Watch the videos "Balancing More Complex Chemical Equations" and "Visually Understanding Balancing Chemical Equations".
- Use the link below to go to the "PHET simulation: Balancing Chemical Equations".
- Click on "Introduction".
- Play around with the simulator, clicking all of the available buttons. Use each of the tools (None, Scale, Chart) to understand how they can help you balance each of the 3 given equations (Make Ammonia, Separate Water, Combust Methane). Balance each of these equations before moving on to the "Game".
- The next set of instructions are important so that you complete this assignment.
- Click on the "Game" portion of the simulation and balance the equations on each level: 1, 2, and 3.
- You MUST turn on the timer, otherwise, your results will not be counted.
- Complete each level in one sitting, otherwise you risk losing your work.
- Complete the levels as many times as you'd like to get the best score you can get.
- When you are done, your screen will looking something like this.
- Watch the video titled "Snipping Tool and Submitting Assignments".
- This is where you need to find the snipping tool app on your computer. Use this tool to take a picture of your screen, save it, and upload it using the link below called "Balancing Game Results"
- April 26 - May 2
- Watch the video, "Balancing Equations".
- Complete the "Balancing Equations Practice".
- Watch the video below titled, "Types of Chemical Reactions".
- Watch the video below titled, "Classifying Types of Chemical Reactions Practice Problems".
- Complete the quiz called "Types of Chemical Reactions Problem Set 1".
- Complete "Types of Chemical Reactions Problem Set 2".
- Play the Snakes and Ladders game. A grade will be required to complete the activity, but not a passing grade. This is stress-free. The top 10 high scores will be posted. You have as many as 5 attempts available. The question bank is huge so I got rid of as many questions as I could, but you may need to look up a few if you get stuck. The game is self-explanatory once you're in it. Have fun.
