This document can be a more effective way to review than completing J-Labs. Reflect on which topic(s) you need to study, then go practice all of the released questions in this document that cover that topic.
The answers to these selected challenging questions appears on the last page of the file.
Unit 1 Introduction to Chemistry
Please find the PowerPoint presentations that were used during this unit below. These can be used to complete the notes if you missed any notes or to review for the test.
Day 1 & 2 - Introduction to Chemistry. The topics included the branches of chemistry and the scientific method as well as an introduction of Mr. Morris, and an explanation of the syllabus and safety contract. Don't forget that the safety contract is part of the notes for this unit.
Introductions and Syllabus - Day 1 Homework: Have the last 2 pages (page 9 and 10) of the syllabus signed, cover your textbook to help protect it, and complete the vocabulary worksheet.
Chemistry and the Scientific Method- We discussed the branches of Chemistry and the scientific method. We also watched a short video and looked at how the scientific method could be applied to the video.

Dimensional Analysis Video - This video walks through the solving of two different dimensional analysis problems (a one stepper and a two stepper). Feel free to use this to study or to review the dimensional analysis problems. It runs about ten minutes and is in wmv format. You may want to have the volume on your computer turned down, because my voice is a little loud in the video.
