Period 3 and 4 AP Chemistry

(Jan 13 – Jan 17)

Monday: Chapter 9 and 10 Test

Homework: None

Tuesday: Chapter 11 Concepts

Homework: Chapter 11 Homework

 You will have 3 days to complete the following. Due Friday January 17.

Show all work on any questions that are mathematical. Write full sentences for written responses and explain your rationale.

Do not leave the entire assignment till the day before. Please pace yourself and also leave enough time for the harder problems at the end. These problems will require critical thinking and researching how to do similar problems.

One method to tackle these problems is to work on the questions for one or two sections per night. This breaks the assignment up into smaller logical pieces.

The entire assignment is estimated to take no more than 3 hours.

 Read Chapter 11 and then do the following problems:

11.7, 11.10, 11.11, 11.12, 11.13, 11.14, 11.15, 11.19, 11.3: 11.31, 11.32, 11.51, 11.53, 11.55, 11.57, 11.65, 11.67, 11.75, 11.79, 11.81, 11.82, 11.93, 11.95, 11.107, 11.115, 11.124, 11.137, 11.150

Chapter 10 Homework

 You will have 7 days to complete the following. Due Monday Jan 13.

Show all work on any questions that are mathematical. Write full sentences for written responses and explain your rationale.

Do not leave the entire assignment till the day before. Please pace yourself and also leave enough time for the harder problems at the end. These problems will require critical thinking and researching how to do similar problems.

One method to tackle these problems is to work on the questions for one or two sections per night. This breaks the assignment up into smaller logical pieces.

The entire assignment is estimated to take no more than 6 hours.

 *Problems involving drawing Lewis Structures, Formal Charges, and VESPR theory involve lots of practice and trial and error. It is recommended that you use a pencil and eraser for these problems.

Final Diagrams should be presented clearly and neatly.
