9/12 – Monday “A” Day – 

Main focus: 

1. To Round calculates values either by the Accuracy Rule or the Precision Rule.
2. To Round a conversion correctly.
3. To Identify constants as numbers that are not considered for rounding.
Standard 4 – Performance Indicator 3.1- 
Explain the properties of materials in terms of the arrangement and properties of the atoms that compose them.
3.1q -Matter is classified as a pure substance or as a mixture of substances.
3.1r – A pure substance(element or compound) has a constant composition and constant properties throughout a given sample, and from sample to sample.
3.1s -Mixtures are composed of two or more different substances that can be separated by physical means. When different substances are mixed together, a homogeneous or heterogeneous mixture is formed.
3.1t – The proportions of components in a mixture can be varied. Each component in a mixture retains its original properties.
 and 3.1u ,3.1w, 3.1x, 3.1cc, 3.1dd,  
Period  9:
1.  We will review the homework form based on the following worksheet.  
Measurement and Sig Figs – RAT 4 – 22-23.pdf
2. Quick review of significant figures and their origin (measurements!!)
3.  We will spend more time reviewing and understanding how and why we round using significant figures (Accuracy Rule) and decimal places (Precision Rule) using the worksheet handed out last Thursday and our class notes.
       a) We will also revisit the metric conversion worksheet 2 – AND NOW round correctly!!!!
          Remember that we only compare sig figs with measured value. Constants like 3.14 are not used to                                    determine  the rounding.

4 Lab Safety Lesson – Review the safety equipment in the school and describe the Lab Safety Assignment.

Lecture 1.5 : How we round in calculations  – Todays lesson

9/12 –  Monday  “A” Day Homework:  Due tomorrow by 5:00 am
1.  Please complete the form below based on the worksheet below. Readiness Assessment Test 5,6 – Lect 1.5 22-23.pdf

2Please complete the Lab Safety Assignment by following the instructions below:   DUE THURSDAY, 9/15!                                                            

1: Measurement and Significant Figures Form :

2:  Lab Safety Lesson Use the Lab safety contract pdf that is posted below to complete this activity or the hardcopy I gave you in class.
Regents Chemistry Safety Contract .pdf
View Download  
In this activity, you will write the safety rule (just one sentence) ,its number from the safety contract (that I gave you and is posted below),  AND WHERE IN THE VIDEO (: timecode) that is demonstrated in four safety videos.  You need 10 different safety rules and you must use 4 out of the 6 videos. This means if you find 7 in the first video you will need 1 each from the three others to successfully complete the activity.  There are many other combinations but you must use 4 videos and you must have 10 different Safety rules written total.
Let me restate: You must find 10 unique safety rules throughout the four of the six videos of your choosing. 
Example of a COMPLETE answer:
                  1: Jefferson High VIDEO – #45. Examine glassware before each use. (3:23)
I  know what #’s each video covers and where thus will grade your work based on this accuracy.
The video playlist is posted above the lab safety form for your convenience.

As you may have figured it might be easier to write you responses in a word doc then cut and paste it into the form when you are done. This way you have a record which might come useful if there is a issue with submitting.
