Thanks Mrs. Karnstedt!
Here are the articles and questions for ChemMatter’s “Hot & Cold Pack”. You can do the reading here or on Google Classroom. Enjoy!
Thanks again Ms. Karnstedt!
Here is part 2 to the stoichiometry video. Thanks Mrs. Karnstedt!
Stoichiometry Simulations Thank you to: Chemistry Experiment Simulations and Conceptual Computer Animations Chemical Education Research Group Department of Chemistry 3051 Gilman Hall, Iowa State University Ames, IA, 50011 USA (515) 294-7718 Tom Greenbowe ([email protected]) Professor of Chemistry and Coordinator of General Chemistry Iowa State University Ames, IA 50011
ChemCollective is a project in the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), the ChemCollective’s goals are to support a community of instructors interested in improving chemistry education through interactive and engaging online activities. HERE is excellent information and practice on reaction stoichiometry.
Here is the video that you need to watch and take notes on. After the notes you will begin the stoichiometry introductory packet.
Stoichiometry: Reactants, Products and Leftovers. Here is the the PhET simulation we did in class as an introduction to stoichiometry. Enjoy! Click to Run
Here is the Mole Island we use in class if you you need one.
Here are the slides you took notes on in class.
HERE is the textbook we use in class. It is Natural Approach to Chemistry (NAC) by Hsu, Chaniotakis, Carlisle, Damelin. First Edition. Copyright 2010.
We had various stations in my chemistry classroom at Antioch HS to review for finals next week. One of my students (thank you Maille) took some interesting photos of a reaction between cupric (copper II) sulfate and NaOH (sodium hydroxide). In some ways it looks like it belongs under a microscope in a biology classroom! […]
Thank you Mrs. Karnstedt!
Here are the slides we used in class to distinguish the types of chemical reactions.
Remember to take notes on this video. If you didn’t take any blank video sheets you can download one from the menu on the left. Thanks again for the excellent video Mrs. Karnstedt!
Here is one of my former NDCP students knowing what it takes to succeed in chemistry. All great chemists start in the basement! Keep the passion Seungwoo Park.
Thank you for sending me the videos. Enjoy! Last one is especially cool (thanks Symone!)
Does the compound FeS have similar properties to iron and sulfur?
Another great video from Mrs. Karnstedt about physical and chemical changes that happen in chemistry. You will also learn about chemical properties and changes , interatomic forces (also known as intramolecular forces), physical properties and changes, and intermolecular forces (IMFs).
Here is the video to watch for covalent bonding. Thank you Mrs. Karnstedt!
Periodic Table used in class. All purpose, all around useful periodic table. Here is the regular periodic table used in class.
Here is a great video by Mrs. Karnstedt about ions and compounds….usually when something ends in Part 1 then you can expect additional parts. Stay tuned!
Mr. Johnson is building an extremely useful and informative educational site for use in your science classes. Please check out the treasure trove of resources available to you! CLICK HERE
Here is the video to take notes on with the proper blank note sheet that is in the classroom. Feel free to pick up a few so you have some handy.
Here is the simulation we did in class. Please feel free to build as many atoms as you want! Click to Run
Here is an excellent video on Bohr’s Atom.

Here are the instructions that will allow you to get reminders from me on your cellphone. Remember privacy is maintained through Remind. I don’t know your number and you don’t known my number.
Hello All! Here you will find the ACHS Chemistry Syllabus for Mr. Borlik’s Chemistry classes. It is also on the side menu under “Chemistry” with many different resources available to you. Please let me know if you have any questions.
It is with a humble and excited spirit to announce I will be teaching chemistry (and physics) at Antioch Community High School. I consider it an honor and look forward to joining and participating in the Antioch community. It is my privilege to ignite passion and discovery in every student. Go Sequoits!
Here is the pH range of colors for the pH take home lab.
Here is the guide for the 2nd Semester Final 2016
Schlessinger Media has made an excellent introductory video explaining why a mere hundred or more elements produce the millions of different compounds and mixtures that make up our world. In Properties of Compounds, you will see that chemical bonds are the key to understanding how elements combine. The differences between ionic and covalent bonds are clearly presented. […]
Here is the the study guide for semester one final exam. Please work the problems for points that will count toward the final.
A great day was had by all as we celebrated Mole Day. Here are some of the creative inventions of my students.
The Cerebellum Corporation released a quirky video series in 1997 called the Standard Deviants. Below you will find the video on the mole from their series. I hope you find it useful in our study of the mole.
The video below goes through the three basic mole problems, namely, grams-to-mole, MIAs-to-moles, and liters-to-mole. Since these are conversion factors it works in the reverse also (e.g. mole-to-grams, moles-to-MIAs, mole-to-Liters). The last problem is a two step conversion. Contact me if you would like more examples. If enough people would like additional worked problems I will […]
ChemFact: Why Kelvin has no degree sign. The Kelvin temperature scale is sometimes called the absolute temperature scale, especially in older books. It was developed by William Thomson, also known as Lord Kelvin, in 1848. A Kelvin degree is the same size as a Centigrade degree. This temperature scale however uses absolute zero, rather than […]
A great turnout at Notre Dame College Prep’s first open house! Thank you checking out our school and please email me [email protected] if you any questions about the science department.
A good time was had by all…and a little learning to boot!
Here is a 5 minute overview of dimensional analysis using the ice-cream lab conversions.
Good job on the Periodic Table this year! It looks great!
Here is the powerpoint on the atomic history and atomic structure we went over in class.
Thank you all for participating in the technology survey. I thought you may want to know the results (out of 49 participants). Do you prefer an ebook or a textbook? 59% said they prefer an ebook Do you prefer to submit homework electronically or hand it to the teacher? 67% said they preferred to hand […]
