Chemistry Honors – Final Assessment
- Final Two Class Period Meetings (49 / 50)
- Final Exam Period
- Period B – Friday, December 12th
- Period D – Tuesday, December 16th
- Period G – Friday, December 19th
- Final Period will start @ 9:00 am
- Students will have up to three hours to complete the assessment
Part 1 – Exam Question (50 points)
- 45 minute time frame
- students work individually
- “work-em-out” problem
- one problem with multiple parts
- will be provided with PT, ions, charges, solubilities
- classroom calculators allowed – use pencil only
- showing process and steps most important
- TOPIC: solution chemistry with enthalpy of reaction
Part 2 – Lab Activity (50 points)
- The purpose of the lab has two possibilities: to determine the identity of the unknown metal or to determine the change in enthalpy of an aqueous reaction or process.
- Each student group (of two or three) will be given an unknown metal or reaction. Each group will design and conduct a lab to determine the identity of the metal or change in enthalpy. The students must use a calorimeter and digital temperature collection (PASCO) as part of their process. The students may additionally use other methods but this is not required.
- The output is a lab report written in each student’s Lab Notebook. The report should follow all of the parts of the lab reporting process and be neatly conveyed.
- The lab notebook will be submitted by the end of the period.
- The last two class periods will be dedicated to studying and thinking about the lab.
- There is no homework for those last two class periods and the LNB may not be taken home.
- There is a discussion post in Schoology for questions
- I will collect your LNB the final day of class – anything written directly into the LNB can be used
- You will collaborate with a partner on the final lab report
- The exam is worth 18% of your final grade (the syllabus states that it will be 20%)
