Okay, time for some review. If you had to guess, what state of matter is shown in this atomic force image? Hint: It is crystalline. You can tell because the bright spots (atoms) are in very ordered, symmetrical positions. Ask yourself: will this material hold its own shape or take on the shape of its container?

Links to addition information are in blue with underlining. These additional notes can be really helpful : )

In addition to the topics listed, expect a quiz approximately every 2 to 3 weeks. It will not take the whole class period, and there may be opportunities for in-class review depending on student attitudes. The best way have success is to review labs, homework and reading before assigned tests.  : )
