2018-19 Honors Chemistry 02 Pd. 2
Owen J. Roberts High School  

Welcome to Honors Chemistry for the 2018 – 2019 school year. Chemistry is an exciting yet very challenging branch of the physical sciences. After all, there is a reason chemistry is referred to as the central science. Hopefully, the course will provide you with the basics of chemistry as well as the role chemistry plays in everyday life.

Insight on Writing a Laboratory Report

Whenever you are entering the laboratory, working with chemicals, glassware, heat {flames, burners, or hot plates, etc.}, proper laboratory attire is REQUIRED!!

NEED HELP - Hours I will be available most days: From Aug. 27 to November 7 - Monday - Thursday - 6:45 a.m. to 7:25 a.m. and after school by prior agreement (see me) and Friday 7:00 a.m. - 7:25 a.m. and after school by prior agreement (see me). After Nov. 8 and before March 11 - Monday - Thursday - 6:45 a.m. to 7:25 a.m. and after school most days (contact preferred) and Friday 7:00 a.m. - 7:25 a.m. and after school usually (contact preferred). March 12 through May 31 see the fall schedule above. Note: I coach soccer in the fall and softball in the spring.

Computerized Assessments - If you would like to, or need to, see what questions or problems you got incorrect on a quiz or assessment, please schedule an appointment with me and we can go over them. Thanks!

Computerized Assessments - If your computer, internet connection, or on-line system is questionable, it is STRONGLY recommended you take all on-line assessments on a school computer sometime throughout the day!!!!! If your home/personal system shuts down, you will receive the grade earned to that point of the assessment.

PERIOD ONE (1) CLASSES - If a TEST falls on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday; students may start the test at 7:25 if they choose to do so by arriving early.

All QUIZZES and FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTS are; located at the bottom of the class webpage.

Note: FORMATIVE quizzes and assessments are designed to provide you, the learner, with feedback on your knowledge and skills. Do I, should I, study more, do more problems, etc. They DO NOT count towards your grade (will not be entered into SKYWARD). Make sure when taking a graded assessment, it is the correct one (not a FORMATIVE one). Names of graded assessments will generally match between what is in the agenda and listed at the bottom of the page!

Tentative Agenda - subject to change

First Laboratory Observations and Critique –

1) Open sink faucets slowly. Do not open or close faucet with glassware under spigot.

2) Do not set glassware on sink ledges.

3) Keep glassware back from edges of the laboratory bench.

4) Return chemicals to storage areas immediately after obtaining your chemical. Only dispense chemicals at your lab bench.

5) Clean – up : Green scrubbies for glassware; dish detergent bottles contain concentrated glassware cleaner (use 3-4 drops per item); sponges are for cleaning the laboratory bench; hand soap for your hands.

6) Goggles are placed “face down” on shelf in sterilizer cabinet


8) Open and close lab drawers with control!. Lab drawers should always be closed unless removing or returning equipment/glassware

9) All chemical containers should be capped unless in the act of removing chemical from the container



Lab balances are returned by staggering bases wide and narrow.

TEST INFORMATION - When you arrive, place backpacks, purses, books, gym bags, etc. at the front of the room. The only thing at your seat should be a writing utensil, eraser, calculator (when applicable), and test. Make sure you get the correct test copy for your row of seats!!! When SCANTRONS are used, record the test copy on your SCANTRON answer sheet. Always bring a #2 pencil in case SCANTRON is used. ALWAYS read and follow the test directions!!!! Work efficiently and use good test taking skills. Please note, I issue a standard set of regular scientific calculators for all assessments involving math when deemed appropriate.

Final Exam Vocabulary Review

Final Exam Concept List

JR - One last bit of humor.......

There was a man who entered a local newspaper's "pun" contest. He sent in ten puns in the hope that at least one of the puns would win.

Unfortunately, no pun in ten did!!

Enjoy your summer!!! May the atoms, ions, and molecules be with you!!!!!!!!!!!

Just an FYI - it will soon become public knowledge that I have decided to retire. Academically, it has been a fairly good year; so that, in conjunction with some other factors have led me to make this decision. If you had requested me to write a recommendation, I will do that, but have been instructed by guidance not to upload them until the end of July. Naviance going through a rollover or something to that effect. I wish everyone a successful junior/senior year! And, I hope to make it to some of the athletic and other events at OJR where I might run into you. Sincerely, Mr. Garman
