Unit 5: Chemical Bonding and Lewis Structures
The book chapter associated with this unit is Chapter 6: Chemical Bonding which begins on p. 174.  Pages 174-188 provide the introduction to Lewis Structures and the Octet rule we will be relying upon for a strong foundation of bonding.

I.  Great Video Teaching Molecular Shapes: (as seen by Mr. Eicher's "A" day classes already)

II. Great Video Teaching Polar vs. Nonpolar molecules: (Will be seen during class by both Mrs. and Mr. Eicher's classes next week.)

III. Great Website for exploring both molecular shapes and polar molecules. This is recommended for students unsure of what we are currently doing in chemistry! Allows you to build and manipulate the molecules on a computer!

For both of the Eicher's Classes A Day and B Day
Make sure you bring your textbook to class on 2/23 (A Day) and 2/24 (B Day)

2/26-2/28: Weekend Homework for Mr. Eicher's Classes
Workbook pages should be complete: 125-127
1. Complete pp. 128-130 and to these LDD's determine if each is either a polar or nonpolar molecule. (Omit #14)
2. Complete pp134-135. (Treat these as a practice quiz with no notes...see how many you can correctly complete and then check your work against your DILL material!)

For the Eicher's Classes on March 2 A Day (and Mr. Eicher's B Day on Thursday March 3)
Be sure to bring your text to class on Wednesday, March 2! (and Mr. Eicher's Thursday March 3)
The following assignments are for class and whatever you do not finish in class should be finished for homework and will be due on Friday, March 4! 1. Complete the worksheet called “Intermolecular Forces”.
2. Read in your textbook pages 711-714.Take notes in your DILL as you read. Make sure that you have the bold words in the text defined in your DILL.You should also have other notes as well!

3.  Refer to Chapter 22 in your textbook to answer the following questions:

  1. What are the variety of ways that carbon can form stable bonds?

  2. What are hydrocarbons?

  3. What is the relationship between monomers and polymers?

  4. Give examples of biological (natural polymers) and give examples of synthetic polymers.

Upcoming Plans for H.Chemistry

Monday March 7- Lab for "B" day

March 8 &9 Tuesday ("A" Day ) and Wed. ("B" Day)

Here is a document that may help you with the types of intermolecular forces. I would recommend printing this document and bringing it to class with you. There are a few questions on the sheet that will allow you to challenge and deepen your understanding of the material prior to a quiz...hint-hint!

Upcoming important dates!
Tue and Wed. March 8 & 9
We will complete our notes on this unit (organic chemistry) and begin preparing for the test next week.

Thur and Fri March 10-11

1) Complete all pages assigned in the workbook (through page 145).  You should make sure and check the key especially for pages 140-145.  It is crucial that you complete those pages in order to be successful on the test. 
We strongly recommend doing a large portion of the review pages (140-145) before coming into class on Thursday and Friday.  The key will be available for you to check in class. 

2)  Print the Naming Organic Molecules worksheet.  You should work on this in class on Thursday or Friday and check the key in class that will be posted.!

3)  Print the attached practice quiz.  You should work on this in class on Thursday or Friday and check the key to see how you did!
