Chemistry I

2nd QUARTER IN CHEMISTRY Fall is upon us and so is 2nd Quarter!  Students are beginning this quarter learning about the quantum model of the atom...which is vastly different than the model they have previously learned!  

We will be taking a break in the middle of this unit to celebrate chemistry during Mole Day!  Mole Day will be celebrated Monday October 23rd this year….with food, demos, and lots of student creativity!  This day has become a tradition at Spring Hill High School….we first celebrated Mole Day in 2003!

After Mole Day we will continue to dive deep and discuss the Periodic Table and all that can be learned about an element from its placement on the table. Students will create their own periodic table of an item of their own choice. We will be ending the semester with a close look at ionic vs covalent bonds...and then introducing mole calculations.
