Course Information Resources

The course information resources listed below are to help you understand what is expected of you as you work toward a successful year in chemistry. Questions should be addressed to your teacher.

Resource Description
Your Reading Journal This handout will help you understand how to organize and use your reading journal to best advantage.
Your Laboratory Notebook This handout will help you understand when to use your laboratory notebook, and how to organize and use use it to best advantage while working before, during, and following on laboratory activities.
Writing a Scientific Report Writing scientific laboratory reports is a component of all science courses, not just chemistry. The form and format of the laboratory report, however, will differ somewhat from course to course. Learn what is expected from you when writing a chemistry laboratory report.
MSDS Information and Resources Each reagent (chemical) used in the laboratory is profiled in a Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). Learn what is contained in each MSDS, and where to find them.

Chemistry Information Resources

Chemistry resources are contain useful information, but do not have "work" that was expected to be turned in for credit. Some of the resources listed are handouts and worksheets that were given to other chemistry classes; you may still find them useful. For some material that I have distributed in accord with a copyright agreement, I will send you to the source on the Internet, if posting a copy on this website would be a violation of the author's copyright.

Resource Description
Lewis Structures, Formal Charge, and Resonance This handout connects Lewis Structures with Formal Charge and Resonance.
Lewis Structures This handout gives an overview of Lewis Structures, and gives a brief set of steps to follow that will help you draw and understand appropriate Lewis structures.
Table of Average Bond Enthalpy Values This is a compilation of data from various sources, all of which are in the public domain. As yet another printable resource, it will also be more convenient than the table of values in your book.
Standard Enthalpy of Formation Table This is another compilation of data from various sources, all of which are in the public domain. As a printable resource, it is somewhat more convenient than the table of values in your book.
The Saturation Vapor Pressure of Water This resource gives the saturation vapor pressure of water in the temperature range of 15 °C to 30 °C.
Selected Isotopes This list of selected isotopes is from your SW Periodic Table of the Elements. The table is printed with a small font that some students have a hard time reading it. Hopefully, this enlargement is easier to read.
Functional Groups This list of functional groups contains all that were introduced in the textbook, plus a few more that have biological relevance.
Solubility Chart This handout is a partial list of solubility rules for common anions and cations. Using your data from the Cornerstone lab activity, "Precipitation Reactions" you will complete the last two columns. (Even when these columns are filled in, this chart does not represent all of the ionic compound solubility "rules".)

Selected Study Guides

Study Guides may be made available to students as an additional resource to help is assigned to assist in studying, however, they are not intended to serve as the sole source of information for the test.

  Study Guide   Description
Cation Nomenclature This resource is a study guide covering the basics of the nomenclature of cations.
Anion Nomenclature This resource is a study guide covering the basics of the nomenclature of anions.
Naming Chemical Compounds This resource is a brief description on the naming of inorganic chemical compounds.
on Significant Figures The American Chemical Society created some resources that go along with the ACS Chemistry textbook. These pages on significant figures are part of that package. There is no Copyright on the paper.
Mole Circle! Mole Circle is a recource to help students understand the centrality of the mole in chemical calculations. Mass to volume, particles to mass, etc., all have to go through Mole Circle!
