CHEMISTRY SUBJECT REQUIREMENTS


The week of September 20 - 24, 2010, our Chemistry students are studying phase changes. Lab experiences include making ice cream (temperature of ice and salt mixture recorded every 2 minutes) and observing a phase change from solid to vapor carbon dioxide outdoors.

STUDENTS IN INKSTER HIGH SCHOOL SCIENCE CLASSES ARE REQUIRED TO BRING A 3- RING BINDER TO CLASS EVERY DAY. THE TEACHER WILL PROVIDE FOUR DIVIDERS FOR STUDENTS WHO NEED THEM; THEY WILL ALSO GIVE GUIDANCE TO HELP STUDENTS ORGANIZE THEIR WORK IN THE BINDER. CREDIT WILL BE GIVEN 1 - 3 TIMES EACH TRIMESTER FOR KEEPING AN ORGANIZED, COMPLETE BINDER.

Each student is required to enter the classroom and immediately complete a 4 - 5 minute writing assignment, called the "DO NOW" assignment. This assignment is written on the board in each classroom. The class proceeds according to posted lesson steps. Homework is posted on the board each day. The AIM for the day (the concepts and skills addressed, according to benchmarks established by the Michigan Department of Education) is also written on the board.

Our first day of classes was Tuesday, September 7. During the first week of school, students reviewed the scientific method, graphing skills, analysis of data, and classroom procedures. Since then, we have practiced using the scientific method and used graphic organizers and other research- based methods to learn relevant vocabulary terms.

Our Chemistry classes follow the Kent County (Curriculum Crafters, or KC4) model. This model emphasizes real-world experiences using everyday materials. Information about the Curriculum Crafters model can be found online at www.curriculumcrafter.org

...PENS poem...

I'm the PROTON
I have a positive charge

I'm the NEUTRON
I have no charge

Together in the NUCLEUS
we're living large

I'm the ELECTRON
A negative beast,
Often not invited
I disturb the peace

We're the PENS-
Subatomic
We're the PENS.

Electron dot stuctures, paired dots and lines for bonds, and ionic and covalent bonding are among the topics addressed during Chemistry B classes.
