All Chemistry Students need a Scientific Calculator for exponents and logarithms. It will have EXP or EE keys, SIN, COS, TAN, Log, etc.
**No graphing calculators allowed on tests, only scientific calculators!**
Leave your textbooks at home:
Chemistry, 5th Edition
Chemistry Honors & AP, 7th Edition
**If files do not open, download Free Adobe Reader at www.adobe.com**
To get ahead for Chemistry in the Fall: read through the following step by step notes and start memorizing the flash cards.
step by step- significant figures, step by step- conversions, ion table, step by step writing & naming compounds, converson flashcards, ion flashcards. Students will get passwords the first day of class!
Note to Parents/Students:
A "C" or better in Chemistry is required for Cal State and U.C. admissions!
Four Steps to Success:
1) On the first day of each Chapter, the assignment sheet dates will be filled out. Notice there is an assignment due everyday!
2) After completing the daily assignment, students should check the answers on this website and try to correct any answers that are wrong.
3) The notes for the next assignment should be previewed to aid comprehension for the discussion in class the next day. **You are still required to write out those notes the next day in class to help you learn them!
4) Any incorrect answers to assignment questions should be re-done after discussion in class. If there is still a question, students must come in for help as soon as possible!
** Only you know if you are understanding the material or if you are lost! Waiting too long to get help, will only make the situation worse. You need to come in, as soon as you need help! (See above for office hours! You can also come in during office hours to start working on your assignment.)
When the labs begin, you should be working ahead on the Review Assignments and starting to study for the test. Studying the night before the test is often too late! You should organize study groups with people who will study. Grades will be posted on emhs.schoolloop.com!
You must come in for help as soon as you need it! It is your responsibility! (See above for office hours!)
Lazy = "F", but Hardwork = "A"!
In the News:
Carol Dweck, a Stanford University researcher states, "The most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. Stretching yourself and sticking to it, even (or especially) when it's not going well allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives." (click for more information)
