"Slides" from 8-14-17 Warm-up:

Exam 1
(Take home)

8/15/17
Short, take-home EXAM 1: Obtain in class. Time yourself, and work independently of notes, peers, or any other resources--okay, you get your periodic table--and see how it goes for 30 minutes. Then take all the time you like and consult all the resources you like to check/fix as much of the exam as you wish. Please demonstrate that you are learning from your mistakes, not covering up the mistakes (in other words, this is like doing your test corrections before you turn in the test and receiving 100% of points back for the corrections). Ms. Clewett will gladly give the entire class 100% on this test, if students are learning this material one way or another.

Note: Lab due date bumped to Tuesday.
Assignment 5: Complete Lab 1 lab report (Note that this lab report counts as a double assignment)
Turn in your self-evaluated Lab report rubric as a cover sheet; failure to grade yourself (write numbers in the boxes) will result in delayed grading while your lab is returned to you for completion of this item; lab will then be counted as late.
Potentially helpful:

Chapter 11 of your text, especially pages 268-269
Lab report rubric:
- good practice & solutions are on 2nd page (makes a decent. simple resource for calculations, terms, etc.)

Sample error analysis:

based on Ms. Clewett’s Data for CuSO4 · n H2O

Empty Crucible mass = 4.2094 g ± 0.0001 g

Crucible with CuSO4 · n H2O = 6.7933 g ± 0.0001 g

1st “Dry” mass = 5.9680 g ± 0.0001 g

2nd “Dry” mass = 5.8850 g ± 0.0001 g

3rd “Dry” mass = 5.8568 g ± 0.0001 g

4th “Dry” mass = 5.8571 g ± 0.0001 g

5th: left in air for about 4 more minutes = 5.8579 g ± 0.0001 g \the sample was starting to absorb water from the air; 4th dry mass demonstrated “constant mass” compared to 3rd mass, and 3rd mass should be used as actual “final mass.”

True/accepted value = CuSO4 · 5 H2O

Calculations would be that mass of water = 6.7933 g - 5.8568 g
= 0.9365 g ± 0.0002 g (*See Note.)
and mass of copper (II) sulfate anhydrate = 5.8568 g - 4.2094 g= 1.6474 g ± 0.0002 g (*See Note.)
Note that when calculating values by addition and subtraction, the uncertainty is ± the sum of the absolute values of each uncertainty used in the calculation.
Finally, we get to the error analysis part:

This is just one option...

Calculate the experimental water-mass-to-copper(II) sulfate anhydrate mass,

and perform a percentage error calculation to compare with the same ratio


calculated from the literature value.

Experimentally, the ratio is found to be 0.9365 g / 1.6474 g = 0.5685 (no units,


follow sig fig rules)


While the literature value would be based on molar masses for 5 units of water




& molar mass of
copper (II) sulfate anhydrate.

Literature ratio is thus (5 x 18.02 g) / (63.55 g + 32.07 g + 4 x 16.00 g) =



0.5645

Percentage error formula (pg. 269 of your textbook):

Percentage error = Absolute value of (Literature value - Experimental value) x 100%
Literature value

We want low values for percentage error; that shows we matched pretty closely with the literature (sometimes called true or accepted value).

For the above example, Percentage error would be:

| 0.5645 - 0.5685 | x 100% = 0.71% error0.5646 0000
See lab rubric for additional requirements for error analysis section of lab report.

Organization, IA's, Reading the Text & Topic Mastery Through Self-Directed Learning
In-Class resources:

8/23/17
Assignment 6: Complete excellent notes for Topic 1.1, including notes that show you thought about (or read and paraphrased the text answers for) "Activity" questions 1 & 3 on page 4 and questions a - c on page 11; also a more original effort (ok to consult text answers AFTER you attempt the question) for Quick Questions - please show Q & A for all "Quick Questions" on pages 7 and 11.
7
Varies by student(range of dates = 9/5 - 10/30)
Assignment 7: Mastery Topic (chosen via random draw)
You are in charge of a sub-topic or a set of sub-topics. You will be a classroom “go-to” resource for your sub-topic(s). You must independently research and achieve mastery of a selected sub-topic (or a few related sub-topics); this will help build the skills you will need to perform background research for your IA project. You also get to teach the class through almost any conceivable activity, giving you greater mastery as you plan how to present this material to others.
Have fun, and ask Ms. Clewett first if you choose "Option F - other" for your mode of sharing your mastery sub-topic(s) with the class.

Assignment 8: Topic 1.2 (Mole Conversions & The Mole Concept)

Assignment 8 Key:
Note that this key contains a mistake! #23 should be (a).
  • (Review text pages 12—19 as needed, spend 30 minutes on Assignment 8 (shown as 7 in file above because Ms. Clewett lost track and spaced out on the mastery assignment). Since you had some time to start this in class and it should mostly be review, please take ownership for learning this material. This topic is a fundamental building block for the majority of skills and applications you will be expected to demonstrate on the IB exams (in class as well as the official IB exams in May).

This process will significantly contribute to anyone doing an IA on an Organic Chemistry or Chemical Bonding & Structure topic (Topics 10 and 4, respectively), A "lab" that simulates organic compounds is an IB mandatory practical (IB uses "practical" where the US uses "lab"), though in this case it is perhaps most correctly termed a simulation.

Assignment 19:
Part 1: Take great notes on Topic 2.2 (from text, study guide, videos, etc.)
  • Notes should include evidence that you actively engaged and checked your understanding as you went along:
  • Draw & annotate figures
  • Work example problems out for yourself - okay to view the text worked example, wait ~5 minutes, then try it yourself from scratch without looking at the text...work it out as far as you can on your own & only then go back to review the text version
  • "Sense-making" activities of any kind--what helps you see a bigger picture or pattern instead of a bunch of individual facts to memorize?
Part 2: Finish the in class Topic 2.1 Questions

Put in a quality ~45 minutes and call it good enough for a night's work. Stay decently rested this week!
