What we are working on:
QUEST A+ - provides released versions of prior Provincial Achievement Tests. EXCELLENT STUDY QUESTIONS.
Important docs and study links:
Course Outline 2017/2018 - provides information regarding curriculum, required materials, class expectations, rewrite policy, marking scheme.
Quest A+ - provides released versions of prior Provincial Achievement Tests. An excellent study resource.
Cool demonstrations and videos:
Unit 02 - Matter and Chemical Change
Elephant Toothpaste --- KI + H202 + Soap --- Crazy Russian Hacker
Elephant Toothpaste II --- KMnO4 + H202 + Soap --- Crazy Russian Hacker
Sodium in Water --- Na + H20 --- Sodium has only one electron in its outer shell, therefore it is extremely reactive. Great intro to the Periodic table. Explains why elements in the same column react similarly.
Atoms: protons, electrons, neutrons, nucleus --- excellent model of the atom. Also explains electron shells and valence electrons, leading to a discussion on reactivity of elements.
Periodic Table Song --- gives common uses for each and every element on the periodic table. Catchy tune!
