Honors Chemistry 4

We have entered the final leg. Congratulations are due to all!!!!!! Yahoo!!!! 

We will have two finals this year that will total 25% of your 4th quarter grade. 

In just 3 weeks, we will have the classroom final. It will be a hard multiple choice test. Bring a #2 pencil and calculator with fresh batteries.

The second test will be a laboratory final. You will identify a mixture of two unknowns in lab using qualitative analysis. Each student will have their own unknown. You will be graded on your lab technique, your steps, your observations and your logic in ruling out possibilities and narrowing down the field of possible ions.

It will be possible to receive a passing grade even if you mis-identify your unknown. 

The bulk of our work will be qualitative analysis. In class, no homework. It will require that you read instruction carefully, perform procedures in order work safely and have fun :)
