Today in class we finished the notes on atoms basics, went over the syllabus, and worked on organizing elements into a table that shows useful trends.  Homework is to complete the activity questions through 5 in your notebook (page 10).  Additionally, if you want to work on the homework that will be due Monday, read this article on placement of new elements in the periodic table and complete a reading log on page 12 in your notebook.

Absent students: for you do now, write ‘absent’ for your Agenda.  Then, complete your notes by looking at the slides posted on Monday.   See me to make up the activity.

Today in class we finished notes that we started last class, went over the syllabus, and students worked in groups to organize elements in a way that seemed useful.  If activity questions 1-5 were not completed in class then they are homework.

Additionally, recommended (but not required) homework is to make vocabulary cards for the following vocab terms: atom, element, ion, isotope, atomic mass, proton, neutron, electron.
