C Layer Assignments

Goal 1: List the symbols of common elements and differentiate between a symbol and a formula.

  1. Memorize the names for the following element symbols. (5 points)
  1. Make a list of at least twenty common compounds and what their chemical formula is. (example: water, H2O) (5 points)

Goal 2: List the general properties of ionic compounds and covalent compounds.

  1. Make a chart of the different properties of covalent compounds and ionic compounds. (3 points)
  2. Make a cross word puzzle out of the properties of covalent and Ionic compounds. (4 points)
  3. Make up a song that will teach some one the properties of covalent and Ionic compounds. (3 points)
  4. Make a video at your house or somewhere outside of school about chemical bonds (sky's the limit on this; you can do a "game show," "newscast," "commercial-advertisement," "TV show about the bonding Family". (or something you come up with!) Present the video to your teacher. Video must be at least 3 minutes long. (8 points)

Goal 3: Be able to write Lewis structures for elements and compounds.

  1. Create a step by step process for drawing Lewis Dot Structures then with at least two examples to show each step. (5 points)
  2. Draw a cartoon about how to do a Lewis dot structure. (5 points)
  3. Using the modeling kits create 5 compounds and show them to the teacher. (5 points)

Goal 4: Write simple formulas of chemical compounds using oxidation numbers.

  1. Fill out second half of atom chart. (5 points)

Goal 5: Name a common compound given the formula or write the formula given the name of the compound.

  1. Do formula sheet you can obtain from teacher. (8 points)
  2. Make up a note card that will explain the rules for naming compounds. (4 points)

B Layer Assignments

  1. Do chemistry lab on formulas and oxidation numbers. (15 points)
  1. Do the Martian periodic table. (15 points)
  2. Make for me a model that I could use to teach students how oxidation numbers of elements must have equal numbers of (+) as (-) to form compounds. (15 points)
  1.   Create a web page that would teach some one about how to do electron dot structure. (20 points)
  1. Create a board game that we could play that would incorporate all the concepts we have learned this chapter. (15 points)
  1. You are faced with analyzing samples of Sodium Chloride, Potassium Iodide, Potassium Chloride, Sugar, Benzoic Acid, and Carmen. You must determine if it is ionic or covalent, without tasting it. Once you have completed your laboratory analysis, you will write it up in normal lab form. (20 points)
