This is an atomic force image of one of the most important substances on earth. As the image shows, it forms hexagonal, or six-sided crystals at temperatures below 0C. It has a density when liquid of 1.0 g/cm3. It has a gram formula weight (molecular mass) of 18.02 grams. It is covalently bonded. The first correct e-mail to Mr. K identifying this substance earns 50 extra credit points

This is my best idea of the schedule. It will be adjusted as progress and materials determine. Please check the Schedule whiteboard in the classroom daily.  Follow the underlined links for more information on topics that are giving you trouble.

Remember this is an ideal syllabus. Our progress may be quite a bit slower. This is still the order subjects will be taken in. 

Chemists are, on the whole, like physicists, only 'less so'. They don't make quite the same wonderful mistakes, and much what they do is an art, related to cooking, instead of a true science. They have their moments, and their sources of legitimate pride. They don't split atoms, as the physicists do. They join them together, and a very praiseworthy activity that is.
