Today in Chemistry
You will need:
1) Pencil/Pen, Colored Pencils, Markers
or Highlighters (4 colors as needed)
2) Bill Nye: Chemical Reactions Handout
+ 4 types of Chemical Reactions–
Picked up yesterday 2 pages 2 sides
3) Any missing work you owe me
1) Test #3 Retakes/Takes – Ends next
2) Progress Notice to be passed out Next
Wed – Please check grades for
3) Any missing work you owe me should
be turned in by today so I can grade it
over the weekend.
Quick Writes will not be grade for points
but for participation and honesty.
1. You are allowed to use your brain, any
notes, labs or worksheets we have done
2. You may not use your textbook except
for the Periodic Table
3. You will have 10 minutes to complete as
many questions as possible.
4. With a colored pencil, you will grade
Chemical Reactions CHANGE THE
IDENTITY of a substance. This means that
the starting substances are NOT chemically
the same after interacting.
Watch the movie and then complete the chart.
A = Red B = Blue C = Green D = Yellow
A + B → AB
AB → A + B
AB + C → AC + B
AB + CD → AC + BD
Two or more elements or
compounds combine to
make a more complex
Compounds break down
into simpler substances
Occurs when one element
replaces another one in a
Occurs when different
atoms in two different
compounds trade places
Identifying Chemical Reactions
____ P + O2 → P4O10 ____ Mg + O2 → MgO
____ HgO → Hg + O2 ____ Al2O3 → Al + O2
____ Cl2 + NaBr → NaCl + Br2 ____ H2 + N2 → NH3
2. Use colored pencils to circle the common atoms or compounds in each
equation to help you determine the type of reaction it illustrates. Use the
code below to classify each reaction.
S = Synthesis D = Decomposition SR = Single Replacement DR = Double Replacement
1) Bill Nye: Chemical Reactions Handout
– Bookshelf 1 page 2 sides – Due
today at the end of the period.
2) Play Basic Chemistry Vocabulary
Game – Hyperlinked on LearningPoint
1) Anything you may still owe me –
Progress Notices will be given out on
Wednesday of next week.
2) Enjoy your THREE DAY WEEKEND!
