Honors Chemistry 3

The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.--Eden Philpotts.

This is a picture of an ionic compound. Since it is found in nature it has a mineral name: halite. First correct formula and GFW e-mailed to Mr. K at school earns 50 extra credit points.

As always this syllabus represents the topics and order that we will attempt to cover in the upcoming quarter. Actual progress may vary, however....study anyway! We might get lucky and stay on schedule! :}  Mr.K
