Edmodo – Join the DFW group by entering
7zuap0.
Edinformatics- find state tests on chemistry.
Since you won’t see any STAAR released items
for a few years, use other state test
questions. Use VA, MA, and New York.

Learn to make podcasts: speaker Jonathan
Bergmann.
Use JING for short podcasts.

Use water molecule kits.



Use pictures on worksheets
Use common objects to model matter such as
nuts and bolts, pop beads, small balls, beans,
etc.
Look for POGIL worksheets. POGIL is process
oriented guided inquiry lessons. These
always include a “model” that leads the
student to develop understanding about how
matter interacts.





Go to a POGIL workshop
Look at POGIL materials online:
TED talk on POGIL
http://www.pogil.org/about/straumanis-tedtalk
Rewrite worksheets to model POGIL style. It
really makes a difference.
Learn to use paint or a draw program to make
pictures or models.



To help ESL students, add pictures of the
polyatomic ions. Use paint to make pictures.

Nuts and bolts can be used to model %
composition.
Have students weigh a bolt and 3 nuts to find
the % composition of the compound BN3.
Use nuts and bolts to model elements,
compounds, and mixtures.

Stoichiometry occurs in everyday life. The Arlington
GMC plant makes 4-wheel drive SUVs. There are
1350 SUVs without wheels. There are 2500 wheels
available.
Reaction: __ SUV body(s) + __ Wheel(s)  __ Wheeled
SUV(s)
10. How many finished SUVs can be made?_________
11. What is the stoichiometric ratio of trucks to
wheels? ___________
12. Which of the materials is in excess? ___________
13. How much of the excess material is left over? ____
14. What limited the amount of product made? ______

Did you know that you can put 2 tablespoons
of popcorn in a brown lunch sack and
microwave it?
I use an air popper at school. Most students
have never seen popcorn pop. Easy to mass
before and after to find the % water. It should
be between 13-15% water.

Students must be able to identify
precipitation reactions, acid-base reactions,
and redox reactions:
Nitrogen + hydrogen  ammonia
N2 (g) + H2 (g)  NH3(g)
Acid-base
(Neutralization)
Precipitation
Single displacement
Decomposition
Oxidation-reduction
Double displacement
Synthesis
Combustion

He was a master at using paint to make
pictures. This is one of the few
electronic copies that I have.
I am sharing it to honor
his memory. Example of
Heterogeneous mixture.
Have a great school year.
Come to the DFW meetings.
HOPE TO SEE YOU AT MARY HARDIN BAYLOR.
