The Mass of Chemistry

by David Ladehoff

October 31, 2008

Inorganic and Chemistry in the Community are discovering the Periodic Table and working through the measurement of the atom. It also corresponded well with "Mole Day" 10/23 from 6:02 AM to 6:02 PM. Students were helpful for providing visuals in creating moles. The correct definition for a mole is the number of atoms that are present when the average atomic mass is measured in grams. This works out to be Avogadro's number which is roughly a trillion trillion. 

Upcoming in the coursework are the periodic table test and finishing of element quizzes in Inorganic, while Chemistry in the Community works on identifying elements during the resource unit. We are also going to be sending home the moles with a mole of slime for Halloween.

The students have been working hard and hopefully they are sharing their learning with family. I look forward to the continued success of the students in the 2nd Quarter.

Please feel free to e-mail with any comments or concerns.
