Work on the acid/base presentation.
Mini Science 10
Be sure you have done the practice problems for balancing and classifying chemical equations. Section 6.1 reading should be done (factors that affect rates of chemical reactions).
Mini Science 10 2-4 24 Oct 2016
Read 6.1 (types of chemical reaction) and determine their characteristics (what are the patterns that can help you recognize them?)
Why does the book list six types of reactions, while some sources only refer to five?
Mini Science 10 19 Oct 2016 Block 2-4
Work on balancing equations (p. 211 and additional problems throughout section).
Mini Science 10 17 Oct 2016
Please look up the following:
crystal lattice arrangement, metallic bond, electronegativity, reactive (what does it mean?), caesium/rubidium clocks (how do they work?)
Mini Science 10 13 October 2016
Look up the octet rule and how it relates to ionic and covalent compounds. Be sure you are comfortable naming ionic (including polyatomic ions and multivalent metals) and covalent compounds. Finish the practice questions assigned in class. Complete the periodic table family/group presentation and be ready to present next class (Monday). Please share the presentation with me by Sunday night. Thank you.

Work on the periodic table family/group as assigned in class. Prepare a presentation (google slides or powerpoint – maximum 5 slides) introducing the group/family, and describing the properties, trends, and other characteristics of the group. Be sure you have read 4.1 and 4.2 in the text.
Mini Science 10 2-4 6 Oct 2016
Be sure you have read 4.1 and 4.2 in text, and that you have completed the chemical naming/formula practice questions.
Mini Science 10 2-4 4 October 2016
List the combining capacities and number of valence electrons for the groups/families shown on the blank periodic table handout. Notice the pattern and the relationship between the valence electrons and combining capacity. Be sure you have read about Lewis dot structures and the rest of 4.1 in the text.
